I want to share some interesting information with you all. I got a call from Wal-mart for a potential job. I was somewhat excited as I haven't been able to find a job and I am willing to do just about anything for a job.
The lady in personnel that called me informed me that this is a part-time position (32 hours). (OK). She also informs me that the pay starts at $7.20/hour. HEHEHE silly woman. Let me show you why it sucks in Southwest VA: Total pay for 32 hours at $7.20/hour = $230.40. Now, deduct the taxes (approx. 20% = $46.06). $230.40 - 46.06 = $184.34. Gas for this 32 hours is $45.00. Therefore, per week I will be making: $139.24. OMG, how do people survive on these piddly wages.
This is definitely a job I will not be checking further into.
My temp job is scheduled to end the end of June therefore, it is crunch time to find a job. If I can't, you can bet I will be collecting unemployment. My next venture is going into production for an operator position. Can't wait, night shift!
UGH>>>>> I really am frustrated!
