What do you all think of these ignorant bosses who don't reply to job applications?

As regards what I think of them - well, my words be so vehemently angry as to be just unprintable here! But you all know what I mean, don't you?

Ignorant shower, these HR bosses!

Although there's too many people chasing too few jobs at the moment, they do seem to be particularly bad for it around here. I moved back around to the Wirral about 5 years ago because I thought the local economy had picked up, however recent economic events have wiped all those gains out, and were left with something resembling the dark days of the early eighties, (with the added ignominy of a new, younger, right-wing working class spouting idioms that would make a nazi blush). With the wonders of hindsight, I should have stayed put and just visited the family at Christmas.

Even before now I've always been amazed at the callousness of some employers around here, treating their staff with utter contempt and constantly trying to rip them off, safe in the knowledge that if somebody doesn't like the pay or working conditions, there's plenty of other people desperate to lose the stigma of 'dole scum', who'll try to do the work.

I know this from personal experience when I went from being an in demand head chef and area manager in Bristol, to being a burger flippin' minimum wage monkey on merseyside practically overnight. Some places seem to just accept their recruitment policy looking like a giant revolving door as the norm. They haven't realised that the absolute finest asset a company can have is good staff... they get frustrated, their employees get frustrated, their customers get shoddy service and basically nobody wins. The people who stand on the sidelines and jeer 'boo hoo' and 'a job's a job' don't help as they're undermining all the workers around them, and although it may not be immediately apparent, ultimately their own power in the job market.

I was going to write you a quick paragraph to cheer you up, but I seem to be standing on my soapbox, I'll get down now. Chin up, something will come along soon.

Here we go again another string of rants over your experiences in the jobs market, sorry but have you ever thought it might actually be your attitude that is preventing employers from taking you on?

Spot on there Shambo. Although Jobneeded's constant posting is quite tiring it does underline a deeper problem. The labour market is so much in favour of business as opposed to workers. This is bad for society. And Thatcher and the Tories' wet dream.

People should stand up for each other, demand better wages and conditions for ourselves and future generations. Stop coming out with crap like "a jobs a job" etc. Join a Trade Union or political movement fighting for a better world. The Anti-capitalist movement in St Paul's Square in London is a good start.

We should stop being sheep and stand up together. Get off your knees Britain.

WHAT???? "My attitude"?? You're joking, aren't you?

On the contrary, it is the attitude of the EMPLOYERS who are making it difficult to get a job. They don't reply, they are too fussy, inconsiderate, etc.

I could go on, but I don't want to run the risk of irking the Bee-in-bonnet Brigade again.

I can take comfort in the fact that most unemployed and right-thinking people sympathise with my case, and thankfully those who shout down people like me are in the minority!

Hi Shambo. Thanks for your comments. It's reassuring to know that you are one of the vast majority of people who sympathise with my case - unlike the minority here, who seem to think that if you say the slightest thing about the misery of being jobless, you are an unnecessary moaner (which is an utterly STUPID line to take).

I agree with you that Wirral is particularly bad for unemployment, and don't blame you for wanting to move away from the place. Jobs here are like gold. I would like to get out of the poverty hole here myself, but there is the problem of finding suitable accommodation and which area to go to improve my chances of a job. Being unemployed day in and day out is absolute HELL, and it is particularly bad with Christmas fast approaching and you have no money to buy presents etc.

These narrow-minded individuals on here who spout utter claptrap that it is MY ATTITUDE that is putting off employers want to get real and start looking around them, assimilate the true dire situation in this area. These people obviously have little understanding of what it is like to be out of work, and trying every day and night for a job, and meeting with either knock backs or no replies at all. They should listen to what good, right-thinking people like yourself have to say about unemployment, instead of being so quick to [censored] off a genuine, sensible, decent jobseeker. Anyway, enough said on those narrow-minded individuals, as the more I think about them, the more angry I get.

Anyway, thanks again for your reply. It was much appreciated.

I agree wholeheartedly with Jobneeded67 but I don't so much mind the lack of replies but do object to being strung along for weeks told a load of bullshit, so much so that I do all I can to avoid dealing or contributing to these concerns I speak primarily of a certain outfit now operating in New Brighton. As luck would have it I now have a better position with a rival and guess what they will enjoy the benefits of my loyalty, effort and experience.

With you 100% mate. I've noticed it's the same little group who just can't help but make negative comments. Good luck with the job hunting mate and just ignore the negatives.

Before you start jumping to misconceived and shallow conclusions again about my job hunting misery, I suggest you take some time to read this article about the mass amount of applicants for the Royal Mail jobs:

http://uk.news.yahoo.com/more-80-000-apply-xmas-mail-jobs-064008196.htm

FACT (as Simon Cowell would say).

You would be well advised to pay particular attention to the post by Worked F'r Me!

Thank you.

Thanks, Pepper_Head. Again, it's good to know that the majority of right-thinking people agree with my points.

I just posted a very interesting News item on the huge amount of applicants for the Royal Mail jobs. Here is the link:

http://uk.news.yahoo.com/more-80-000-apply-xmas-mail-jobs-064008196.html

I suggested to those narrow-minded who are too quick to shout down genuine unemployed people to read this article and assimilate the dire reality it conveys.
