hi all

a few of my friends got rejection letters today too..
i got mine last week..even though references where called on 29th july, 2 days after interview... confused

apart from Sallybear and one other on here i know of no one who has actually had a job offer?!

we are wondering if all the jobs have been given to unemployed (long term) people even before we had interviews? confused
and maybe we are back up in case they need more staff if people leave or the shops does better than expected?

a lot us us, myself included waited 6 weeks + to hear.

do you know of anyone who has actually got a job?
if so where they working or unemployed, and how many hours did they accept?

think

It's called initiative, and a lot of employers like that.

With the unemployment figures we have at the moment, employers can have their pick.

Did hear that to save on the chance of employing unlucky people it was advised to throw half the applications in the bin.

yeah i totally agree, 3 of his mates went with him, they had phoned up etc but they didnt even get interviews frown

Its quite a worrying time how little jobs there are for the amount of people who are unemployed.
On a plus side though i am sure given time Morrisons will soon be taking on more people and with a bit of luck possibly offer some to people who were previous rejected, you just never know.

Good luck to all who were rejected with finding jobs, SOMETHING will come up laugh

hi free spirit,
i got my rejection this morning to and so did other people i know who are currently working in stores. i 've only heard of un employed people gettin taken on except the friend of toffeenose from above . i have heard that they had to take on a huge percentage of un employed people as a condition to getting the shop contract in new brighton and had take so many from remploy .i've only heard of people being offered hours under 20, mainly 11 and 17 hour contracts so maybe thats why we didnt hear as stated more hours.
did your letter say u would be kept on file or anythink for the future?
if so may have chance once stores up and running.Mine said good luck for the future or somthink along them lines only read top bit .Feel that the rejectin letters should of gone out all together first before job offers, least we all wouldnt of had 6 weeks of stress

hey Happy,
sorry to hear you got one today too..
yes i rang thursday and they said as we got our letters so late it means we passed the interviews with high marks and will be kept on file,
and the reason was because we asked for higher contracted hours and they where mainly smaller contracts.
as they are under recruiting untill they see how the store goes.

i think that your right in what you said about the people who did get the jobs probably being unemployed etc.

i agree that the rejection letters should have gone out together rather than in spits and spurts.
quite a few people have turned jobs down due to the low contracts too, which i , like yourself, cannot afford a drop in hours/pay.

we may hear back in a few months..
