I'm a Manager, but too far away from you to be of any interest.

I will give you a tip however, take a writing and speaking course. I would also take a hard look at the college you're attending and do a value analysis on the education you're getting.

If you do have any marketable skills, at some point you'll have to be able to communicate them.

I'm a manager @ a culvers for 2 more weeks. I have a job offer from Minneapolis North district of walgreens to be mgmt trainee there, and i have two more interviews with good companies. I've got a Business/MGMT degree from one of the top business schools in the state.

The thing that bothers me the most about employees, is when they don't care, have a bad attitude, etc. Especially when they work down to the level that'* expected, or of other employees.

Not everyone is einstein, but if they try, that'* more than half the battle, skills can be taught, especially at the jobs it sounds like you're looking for. Show the manager you care, dress nicely for your interview (and not just a polo shirt + jeans if possible) be interested in the company, ask questions, etc.

6-8 hours is too far, thanks for the offer. i don't talk the same way I chat or post messages on the internet. I'm not slow when it comes to communication, just shy. I tested in English 101 which is college level, while there is English 099, 098, 097, and **** which is for people with poor communication skills.

General labor, assembly, or something in the manufacturing business. My major is IT-Networking and next semester I'm going to get certified in PC repair. I was thinkging about taking some of those ASE tests and get certified as a parts specialist, brakes, suspension, or something.

Hey Walgreens is an excellent company to work for. I just finished the management program and am now an assistant manager for a store in Memphis South District. Awesome company to work for and awesome benefits. I started at the bottom though and worked up to it and I plan on going further. Lemme know how it goes.

Also Trigga, I know there are walgreens there and they start photo techs out higher than the rest of the departments other than pharmacy. You might put your application in there. Being from there myself I know there are plenty to choose from
