    I went for a interview for the new CEX shop in Douglas, after the interview the guy told me they were interviewing over 90 people that day for only 5/6 positions :eek:

    Luckily I got called back for second interview, fingers crossed.....

    I went to the Dealz interviews and it seemed to go well but I never heard anything back. Has anyone heard anything from them or should I just assume I didn't get it?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 8,411 ✭✭✭ABajaninCork


    When was it? Anything over a week, I generally assume I haven't got the role. :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 23 thatperson


    It was the 27th of May, they said you'd here in a week but most places who say that usually take longer, so I'm still hoping. I can't seem to get anywhere with any other places

    I am really beginning to wonder what is wrong with work in Cork.. I went down to the local special needs place the lavanagh centre in April and had a meeting with the head mis. Said I would like to volunteer and that goes, I would do anything. She was really positive even saying that paid work might come up in the future and they really needed the help.. Done the garda vetting and all that goes.. Heard nothing and soon after that I see an advert up looking for people to work (for money) as bus stewards as such, no previous experience required. Still haven't heard back from them!! very annoyed

    @Milly33, you're finding the same thing that I am- there is some work out there and even though it's far from prestigious (or even rewarding) it appears to be impossible to put yourself in the way of it. I've been to one interview in recent months and didn't get the job. It's very hard to learn from these experiences.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,651 ✭✭✭Milly33


    thanks cantdecide, yeah tis just so frustrating.. A friend was telling me that by rights a company should tell you why your application was not successful so I tried email one the Cork Internation hotel loads of times, I rang and no one got back to me. So I emailed again when I saw the same job advertised and the reply was all in broken English and not even a reply to my questions.. Kills me, then recently in work I have been picking up the slack now for a long time and finally broke to the boss that its getting a bit much and they fecking know the other one is no capable (his words) of doing the work and shes still there.. that's another kick in the teeth

    In July now, and still haven't been able to get a single job offer besides door-to-door sales since my exams ended. I can't even count how many CVs I've sent out in the last two months. It's incredibly disheartening. :(

    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



    amansworth@corkairporthotel.com


    ihomich@corkairporthotel.com


    I think these are the email addresses for the hotel's HR Managers


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,651 ✭✭✭Milly33


    I emailed the ihomich one and got a very bad reply back with broken English saying sorry you job application was not successful which was not what I had asked her at all.!!

    I am actually so mad at the moment between this, time wasters like the cork international, the flying enterprise and other places advertising for jobs.. I got a response back today after nearly three months waiting from the school of the divine child or the lavanagh centre in Ballintemple with some fob off excuse of why I heard nothing back from them, after going to meet the principal about working for free!! It really makes me wonder - I went in meet the lady, filled out all the forms, dropped them back on time and two weeks after I see a poster in the local shop looking for PAID bus assistants there!!! I used to be loyal but feck em!!

    Its a joke,

    I was going through emails there and found one reply back from the flying enterprise just a courtesy email as such, but spotted they were advertising again on Jobs.. I really don't know why any young or single person stays in Ireland any of ye if ye can do just bugger off


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,465 ✭✭✭✭cantdecide


    So where are the nice places to work in Cork and how do you get noticed? I mean aside from any hiring campaign they may be on and the ordeal of having to deal with agencies and all that? Surely there are medium to large companies that treat their staff well enough and hire from time to time without all the Wizard of Oz/ contract uncertainty stuff to go through?? As my job hunt is becoming more long term, I'm thinking there are companies I should consider dropping a fresh CV into every so often.


  • Registered Users Posts: 345 ✭✭DAZP93


    Drop your cv's to Abtran or recruitment@abtran.com


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,651 ✭✭✭Milly33


    Oh thank you I shall do..

    Honestly I don't of any good place to work for or anyone known as such to be good for hiring.. Again the Flying Enterprise I heard your man chatting on the radio saying oh he gives everyone a chance and that he believes in suppose local jobs blah blah, applied twice and heard nout back from them and they are advertising again


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,651 ✭✭✭Milly33


    sorry now for the dim-nis what do Abtran do

    Interesting sure ill give it a go any extra income is good. I would be mmmm 31 yeah or 32 that age bracket haha


  • Registered Users Posts: 14 teacakes


    I actually applied to Abtran very recently. They gave me a call about an hour after I sent my CV in; very efficient of them. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on who's reading this!) they're looking for people who are able to work full time, which I wouldn't have been able to do as I've college kicking off again in September.

    Yep, used to work full time in Ireland till the place went into closure. I went abroad for a year or two and worked full time there. Then started where I am covering maternity and then down to three day week and have been searching for around 3 years id say for full time work...

    sure I did lots of things worked in toyshops loved it, bar work, shop work, worked then in an architects office doing admin managing that side of it, now in sales and admin.. would love something more active or something where your not behind a desk but sure would do anything (well not anything) but funds are low
