Wouldn’t Hire Him Even If They Were Hiring

, , , , , | Working | March 7, 2020

I’m the assistant manager of a fairly busy store. We have been open for over six years and have been fortunate enough to have a pretty steady team; we’ve only needed to hire a handful of times. It’s the end of November, and if we needed to hire Christmas temps, we would hire in August in time to train them up.

A guy walks straight up to me at the till and mumbles, “Have you got any part-time jobs?”

I reply, “I’m sorry, we’re fully staffed at the moment and won’t be taking on anyone else before Christmas.”

He then gets quite aggressive with his tone and snaps, “I always come in here and ask and you always say that! What is wrong with you?”

Quite surprised at his reaction, I politely explain that we have a full team, and therefore will not need to hire unless one of our members leaves. He seems satisfied with that and leaves, but I certainly wouldn’t consider hiring him even if we were looking!
