I'm trying to get a job for the rest of the summer, and I found a Waldenbooks (a bookstore chain) looking to hire from now until September (perfect!). So I filled out an application and waited a few days. I gave the store a call and talked to the manager. I asked him if he had a chance to look over my application yet, and he said that he hadn't and he was busy and I should call again tomorrow. So I did. Same thing happened, except he said call next week. This job is the only thing standing between me and a shiny new iPhone with some extra spending money.
