New grocery distribution center to bring nearly 300 jobs to Pearl River

As reported on WWLTV a new grocery distribution center being built in Pearl River will mean 290 new jobs, St. Tammany leaders announced Wednesday (Mouton, D, Northshore Bureau Chief, 2012). Associated Wholesale Grocers (AWG) will set up shop on a 68-acre piece of property along Interstate 59.


The list of jobs, as provided by spokesperson Floyd Baker, is impressive:

30   administrative and sales jobs that will pay between $50,000 and $100,000 each
24    warehouse management jobs in the $40,000 to $90,000 range
130+ warehouse labor jobs will pay in the $30,000 to $40,000 range
20    warehouse clerical jobs ranging from $30,000 to $40,000
100  transportation and security jobs available that will be outsourced
588  construction jobs will be supported by the $75 million project

Associated Wholesale Grocers, Inc. (AWG) officials told The Slidell Independent this week they hope to hold job fairs as early as August, with permanent jobs beginning by this fall (Chiri, K., Slidell News Bureau, 2011).

Can a company demand to interview your spouse?

Resumes, resume, Resume, resumes, Resume writer slidell, resume services Slidell, professional resume writer Slidell, Resume writer New Orleans, resume services new orleans, professional resume writer New Orleans.

I was researching on Monster.com and came across the strangest interview policy.

A question was posted on a Monister.com board for Job Search Tips about the interviewing policies of a company named MightyData.

One of the articles on the company blog detailed MightyData’s very extensive interview process. The blog was written by Susan Fennema, MightyData’s “Dean of Success.”

The blog talks about the steps in the interview process including; the online job application, interviewing with other team members, a technical aptitude test, a personality profile, and a reference check. However, MightyData has one last step in the interview process before a potential employee is approved to be hired;

Now get this, they conduct an In-person interview with spouses! (WHAT?) 

Here is the excerpt from the blog:

In-person interview with spouses – While I like the personality profile, this step to me is the very best. You can hear all the stories you want about separating work life from personal, blah, blah, blah. But, seriously. Are you really going to argue with me that your work doesn’t have an effect on your significant other and your significant other doesn’t have an effect on your work? That’s ludicrous. Plus, the candidate has chosen this person to be his/her most trusted life partner. It’s a good way to check your potential team member’s judgement! If the person does not have a significant other, this step is still included. It is the last step in the process and decisions are made thereafter.

I agree with Monster expert Susan Aaron’s (Career Assessment Coach) when she says WOW!

Can I add OMG! and WTF?

Seriously I had to read this paragraph several times! Does it really say;

“Are you really going to argue with me that your work doesn’t have an effect on your significant other and your significant other doesn’t have an effect on your work?”

“ the candidate has chosen this person to be his/her most trusted life partner. It’s a good way to check your potential team member’s judgement!”

 If the person does not have a significant other, this step is still included.

 Again; OMG! WTF? 

Good Luck

HOW TO: Set up an Online Resume

This article by Erica Swallow explains how to post your resume online using personal websites, video hubs, document-sharing websites or LinkedIn.

HOW TO: Set Up an Online Resume

The examples’ used are some of the most creative social media, video and visual resumes examples I have ever seen.  Take a few minutes to view some of the examples; they are really impressive.

But what I really find most informative about the article is the suggestion Erica makes to upload your resume to a document-sharing website such as SlideShare or Scribd. In fact I have already created a profile and posted my resume on SlideShare (41 views already). I’m planning to do the same on Scribd.

If you need help creating your own Online Resume give me a call.

Good Luck

Dating and Your Job Search

I love this article by Hannah Morgan; she compares searching for a job to dating.

How Dating “Rules” Apply to Your Job Search

I always said that not getting a job, especially after a great interview, is like being dumped by a guy.


You felt like you made a real connection,
he was interested in you,
you had so much in common,
you laughed at his jokes,
you stated to picture a future with him.
And, after the evening was over, he said he would call…but he never does.
The worst part is you usually never know why.
What did she have that I didn’t?
You are humiliated; and you feel horrible for weeks.
 
Don’t be that job candidate anymore! 

A powerful, achievement-focused résumé with distinctive, eye-catching design will get you noticed! Let a professional résumé writer help you turn heads and stand out from the crowd.

BTW; I mean no disrespect to all the guys out there. I only use the term “guy” because
I am a girl. I know the knife cuts both ways.

Good Luck
