William didn’t get the job stocking shelves at night. They told him in the interview that they wanted someone with more experience. He has been putting in more applications. Last Saturday he put in an application at a local pizza place. He asked to see the hiring manager and was told that he would be in tomorrow at five. We went back the next day just after five. William had on his suit pants and dress shirt. He didn’t wear his tie or suit jacket. I never know what is acceptable for the kids to wear to interviews at fast food places. Everything says to dress up, but how dressed up should he be to make pizzas? William went back into the pizza place and asked for the hiring manager. When he came back to the car William said that he had an interview and it went well. William is not outgoing or talkative. He is bright, but in public, he is quiet. He is so quiet that he gives off the impression that he doesn’t care. I wish that we had a store that I had taken the kids into for years so that the staff knew them and they could all get first jobs there.
I went around the neighborhood and wrote down all of the names of companies that might have a second or third shift. William needs a company where the start time is at a time when I can drop him off. He does a great job once he clocks in, but he can’t remember to leave the house to get to a job on time. Also, if he walks to work it is difficult to get there at the appropriate time. If he is too early it upsets people and he can’t be late, then he would get fired. I had never thought about this. One day William and I were talking and he said that walking to interviews was incredibly hard. He never knew if lights were all going to turn red and hold him up or if there was going to be a lot of traffic. It is easy to be five or ten minutes early or late for an interview when he walks. I have been trying to drive him to interviews.
