What is the chance of me getting hired if I call a mom-and-pop roadside computer repair shop and ask for a job? I'm nineteen, never worked a day in my life, in college for an A.S. in Network Systems, and have an A+ and MTA cert.
Massive chances of getting hired if you know how to fix woodwork, not computers. You're in the wrong business, anon - time to get out of network engineering, and into the fast paced world of carpentry.
High enough to be worth attempting it. You should definitely apply in person though.

In a roadside place run by boomers, it will actually be relevant
How do I get hired if I have a terrible anxiety over phonecalls.
Everywhere I apply does callbacks at random times, from random numbers often in entirely different states and I have no idea what business I'm talking to or anything.
It makes mt anxiety shoot up to 11 because I'm basically going in blind.
I work in the sort of computer shop you're describing. It depends a lot on the owner, but I'd say your best bet is to drop by, shake the owner's hand, and give him your resume. If they just so happen to be looking to hire someone, a good impression might be all it takes to get you hired.
Keep in mind the turnover at a computer shop won't be like that a fast food restaurant (unless the owner/manager is a massive dick). I was hired at my current job six months ago, but I think I was the first new employee in a couple of years.
