My first job interview, okay.
I was still in high school and I wanted to make some extra money. I went to Mays Department Store (New York) to apply for a job as a stock girl. I didn’t know what a stock girl was and I had no idea what I’d be doing. I arrived at the Personnel Office early and was told to wait because I was “too early.” I waited about 20 minutes. As the minutes ticked away, I got more and more nervous (maybe they do this purposely). And I though of picking myself up and walking out the door. Anyway, finally, the woman in Personnel led me into her inner sanctum. Nothing glamorous. Everything was grey and dull. She asked me if I had any work experience. (I don’t remember filling out a job application.) Of course, I replied no. She asked me other questions, none of which I can remember. It’s all a fog.
She described in detail what I would be doing. I would help out the cashiers doing things such as: putting together boxes in which customers’ clothes would go when they bought something; return clothes to the racks that customers changed mind about; go into the fitting room, take clothes left hanging all over the place and return to racks. I was to put them in racks according to size and color. I was to help customers with any clothing needs they had. And I was to perform other duties as told by Manager. After describing the job, she asked me if I had any questions. I replied no. She told me that if wanted the job it was mine. I was to work from 5 p.m.to 10 p.m. every day, except Mondays. Of course, I said yes. And I can tell you, I didn’t last too long at this job. I was totally bored and got fired! I’ve never been so happy to be fired from a job in my life! It was a long while before I applied for another job elsewhere. But I had the experience of a first job interview under my belt!
