    I really want a part time job this summer, but because I'm doing my Leaving Cert I wouldn't be able to start until late June, plus I will probably be abroad for some portion of the summer as well. I have 2 months of bar experience from last summer in Kerry.

    But anyways, with the late start and partial absence, do you guys think anybody would employ me? :p

    I looked them up and they contacted me. Basically, it's another Amway type things. Works for some people, but I personally couldn't do it.

    Has anyone experience working with Garnish House on Western Road? They seem to be constantly advertising for a receptionist/duty manager on the FAS website, I'm thinking of applying but I don't want to work for an a**hole. Had my fair share of those bosses for one lifetime....

    Market Lane restaurant and Clarion Hotel are looking for waiters/waitresses in case you're interested. And if i'm not mistaken, Amicus restaurant is also looking for staff.

    This morning I saw a sign in the topaz in Wilton looking for staff.

    I'm finding it shockingly difficult to find a job at the moment - like everyone else, really! It seems like even to be a fruit picker or cleaner these days you need at least two years of experience.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,646 ✭✭✭Milly33


    Defiantly with you. Im working three days and have been looking for something else for nearly a year. tis mad I think tis all about who you know

    Anyone know of any travel jobs. I don't want to be an air hostess as I wouldn't have the patience but something else, even the ships


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,646 ✭✭✭Milly33

    I'm thinking about applying for one of the jobs Apple have advertised at the moment.

    Can anyone give a current opinion on what it is honestly like to work there?

    The job is demand planning so if anyone has any info on this department in particular, then that would be great as well.

    Thanks!

    No idea what it's like to work there, but from my own experience, it takes a while for them to reply so might as well send in your CV to them anyway.

    Why is it so hard to find a part time job? I'm pretty much not allowed to go back into university if I don't have one, unless I want to spend TWO full years working at my awful current full time job trying to save enough money for €6000 fees AND living expenses (if I had a part time job it would cover my living expenses and I could just borrow half the fees money and save the rest).

    I'm envious of those on Back to Education. You pretty much make the equivalent of someone in a part time job without having to work! :P I think it's a bit ridiculous that you can only get it if you're on the dole for NINE months, never the mind the fact if you've been working a full time job for the past 6 months trying to go back to university and not live off welfare! Maybe there's a good reasoning behind it. I'm stressed either way :(

    Does anyone here work for the Cork Airport Hotel? I cant understand them at all, I have seen a few jobs advertised on Jobs.ie and have applied severeal times, and sent in a general c.v.. Rang to follow up, and was told nothing. Emailed two different email addresses for some feedback and still nothing. Think it is very rude of them and then yesterday I see the two jobs up again

    I know someone who got a job there although I'm pretty sure there was a family connection there! They worked for one year before quitting so not really sure whether there was problems there or not!

    I'm going into the city today and if anyone had any ideas of places that would be good to look into for employment I'd appreciate is :) I've rang up a few places but nobody really seems to be hiring or have hired recently :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,646 ✭✭✭Milly33


    Just find it odd. Speaking of the devil I just got an email back from them. The lady didn't even read my email properly this was her reply to my question as to why my application was not considered I had not even applied for the latest job
    "thank you for your recent application concerning employment within the Cork International Airport Hotel.
    I regret to advise you that we will not be pursuing with your application. However your application will be held on file for a period of 6 months and should a suitable vacancy arise, it will be placed forward for further consideration.
    Once again, we thank you for the interest you have shown in the Cork International Airport Hotel; we would like to wish you every success in your future career"

    Seems like a sham id say.

    Places in town that might be hiring I heard voxpro but they are suppose to be awfull to work for so maybe not. Try vibes and scribes both shops, pennys were hiring also..


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,840 ✭✭✭Luno


    I suppose at least you got a reply, hate waiting to hear from a company who never get back to you.

    I called into penneys who said it's all done online and just went into a few shops and got chatting. Hopefully something will arise out of todays efforts.

    Supermac's is also hiring beside the cinema. And Deep South is looking for bartenders. Other than that, I think it's just a game of chance handing in your CVs

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,646 ✭✭✭Milly33


    thanks for that, could be an interesting one


  • Registered Users Posts: 676 ✭✭✭turnikett1

  • Registered Users Posts: 483 ✭✭marialouise
