Why not just move? This would lead me to assume you live in the middle of shit-town.
For me, that would be a deal breaker.

They wouldn't even give me the decency of being there before the heavy flow sets in. I mean I don't know where half the stuff is in that toy store and these mangers expect me to know nearly every (every vague description the customers give) product customers want in the store.

How the ever living fuck am I suppose to get 2000$ by the end of this year. Because if I don't the school sends it to a collections agency and they tack on a crazy principle. Which will make a bill for 2000 go to 2700 or more. Seriously suggestions on jobs

There should be more companies desperate for temp hires. surely you have local warehouses offering shift differentials and other stuff? Seek the temp agencies.
>>
i had three interviews, except the third was just with the office manager.

he walked in, kinda explained how he trusts the department folks who interviewed me, he doesnt have time to talk with me, hired me on the spot and told me to talk with the admin staff to look over the employment contract and fill out my I9. he ended up leaving the company two weeks later and started his own company.

i like that guy
>>
>>973710
>surely you have local warehouses
The nearest UPS warehouse was inaccessible without a car, which I don't have.

I tried a whole bunch of big box stores. Even the one I am working at now, they turned me down the first time at a store closer to my house. I have this crazy 2 hour commute everywhere, and some areas I will never make it reliably.

And I am already working for a temp agency, except they haven't called me in 3 weeks.

I am starting to think the economy is non existent in NYC.

>NYC

Oh you poor sod.
>>
>>973708
Nigger, swallow your pride and become a damn dishwasher. It will suck but they'll hire anyone. Or become a fucking bus boy. Bottom of the totem pole.
>>
>>973729
I live here man, I can't up and move because its expensive

>>973755
Already working at a big box store seasonal
How much lower can you go?
>>
>>973805
just go work at burger king or another fast food place. In my town they have 'now hiring' signs up all over the place.

>I am starting to think the economy is non existent in NYC.

Is it not obvious that non-skilled labor in NYC is becoming more and more saturated?
It's fucking NYC, the economy is fucking massive and always thirsty. They already have plenty of puerto ricans or indians to take care of the shit work.
I'm a student making $36 an hour at my internship in NYC. Get educated or move the fuck out of the city.
>>
>>973850
>I'm a student making $36 an hour at my internship in NYC
What major?
Are you in EE?

How did you get an internship making 36$/hr. I am on Indeed right now looking through "engineering internship" (Most I can't apply for because they want people ready to graduate by june 2016).
The only good one is IBM but they are all the way upstate NY. I'd have to get a car and rent a place up there. That all cost money.

>>973849
I wish man. I started my job search on Craigslist and within the same week went to McDonald's, a movie theater, and checkers. All of them weren't hiring.
>>
>>973671
>6km
>3-hr round trip

What in the actual fuck. I can walk 6k in like an hour.
>>
>>973857
Good guess, i'm CPE which is just EE + CS. Software Engineering is what's big now (the CS part), EE is definitely not as lucrative or demanded in this area.

I do software engineering at a big bank.

Tech in NYC is fucking EXPLODING. right now. I'll assume you're a capable man, study programming hard as fuck and you will succeed.
If you don't have the passion though, forget it. You can't robotically do this shit like you can lifting stuff. Let me know if you want any more advice, I've worked in the area with 3 different big companies.

Your point would be valid if the job were in the city centre. The workplace is across a river so the trip is more like this
>>
>>973656
Yeah, I've heard this post before. You said you're working in Toys 'R' Us, go figure.
>>
>>973878
What? No
>>
>>973865
Well I am EE
If you know the location of any internships for an undergraduate really close to a train station let me know.

>2 hour commute everywhere because of a bus just to get to the F,E, or J

>>973878
I think that might have been me
I have been posting my frustration with finding an actual job for months now. Finally got it and well this >>973708
>>
>>973884
If you mean Penn station, you should still be applying to just about every tech/hardware company. NYC is fucking massive, you should be applying yesterday.
Consider software, actual EE work is way more rare and harder to break into.
>>
>>973896
I am in Queens so the closer here the better
idk all the EE professors and people I know are telling me EE is still a good major, and of course CS/CE/InfoSys people are telling me the opposite. I have very little experience programming besides in matlab, and that knowledge is rather shallow. Mostly working in circuits.

i also got ez jobs at food places when i was young because of friends. my similar story is that i don't like work in general.

Your city hasn't yet researched the forbidden technology called "bridge", I take it.
>>
>>974207
I think the bridge is further south of him, so although in a straight line its 6km away. He has to go all the way to the bridge then back up to get to his place of work.

>>973907
One in 30 places I just applied to is interviewing me. Here's to hoping my story goes the way yours did.

What do you do and where?
I also have a bio degree in vancouver, graduated a year and a half ago and just been working manual labour since with nothing related to bio.

The only bad thing is having to fight with people because of their retarded parking and writing tickets. Meh if i was in the uk it would probably be better.
