Content warning: Sorry, angry swearing ahead.
The brewery owner replied to email about scheduling an appointment with a “I’m not available and we’re not hiring at this time.” He then followed it up with a “but feel free to email me your ideas and I’ll consider them when we hire in the near future.”
NO, FUCK YOU!
You’re the one who told me about the job opening, you’re the one who told me to submit my resume, you’re the one who told me you’d review it and get back to me. AND THEN you told your employee to email you directly scheduling a time. Listen, I get that you’re busy, but you don’t have to be a dick about it.
But… I need a job so I’ll probably email him.
Then I got an email this morning from the sales manager at Mark’s company, “thanks for your interest and idea but I’m looking to build my team with people who are experienced in sales. If I head in a different direction, I’ll be sure to revisit your application.”
WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK?!
Listen readers, I can’t tell you what (Christian) company this is or what I’d be selling… but I’ve been teaching the bible for almost ** years, I’ve used their product, I know their customers…IF I’M NOT QUALIFIED TO EVEN GET AN IN PERSON INTERVIEW, WHO THE FUCK IS?! There is literally no one, NO ONE, who knows their customers and their needs better than I do. NO ONE! Some salesman off the street isn’t going to know half the shit I do. It’s the reason Mark got hired, because of his background and experience as a pastor. And now Mark, in 2 years, is running one of their major departments, YOU STUPID FUCK sales manager.
Sorry, I’m really having anger issues today.
Mark is PIIIISSSED. He might pull rank and get me an interview.
Me: Thanks for helping with the sales position. However, [sales manager] will not be interviewing me since I don’t have formal sales experience.
I’ll talk to him later today.
I’m not sure I want to be hated by my future boss.
But… I need a job so I’ll probably interview if he can swing it.
