2 part time jobs are better than one full time job, cause Obama gets to count both as job creation. He looks good, and claims the economy is recovering, while you fall further behind.

I'm going to get on welfare, and avoid the rush. I wish you all the best.

Its true that you must put away your degrees and diplomas when you go searching for a job these days because , its not about what you know or what experience you have had in the past ..........Its about how well you can answer those stupid interview questions ( situational questions ) .......If you do really well on those situational questions then you can pretty much get a ( part time ) job anywhere and forget about ( full time ) because , it doesn't matter how much you prove yourself , you will still have to go through more interviews to do the same job you are already doing .....Its the ( new ) American way ! (SAD )

You voted for this, twice. You should be happy, not sad.

Obama said that if he can't fix the economy in his first term, he should be a one term president. When given a choice between a proven job creator, and someone promising you free stuff, you elected him again.

There is a poetic justice here, that simply can't be denied.

I know a job is a job but wow - part time! Macy's pays 7.93 per hour. They tell you that you can make commission but you really only make money the week or two before Christmas. They also schedule more people on your shift to cut down your sales so less commission. These jobs are seasonal work and when January comes most of these people will be laid off! If you are lucky enough to stay on, they demand you be available the whole week 10am -closing so how can you try and get two more jobs just to pay the rent? Toys R US I would venture the same. It has been said only 61 percent of Americans are working now. It's disgusting how our government has let this country down.

I hope all that are looking for a job gets the one they like- I worked for 44 years and never did anyone male or female make more than me doing the same job, but I was a great employee- didn't call in sick-"oh I have cramps or my child is sick" many people with a lot more education got the boot while I kept working and advancing. Don't go to an interview sloppy- chipped nail polish- messy clothes- leave your cell phone in the car and know something about the Companies background- write a thank you note for the interview- always be respectful but never a door mat.

I've tried a couple of these:

Verizon-sort of like a bank, elitist, won't even grant an interview.

ATT-not sure what happens once you send the resume other than nothing.

Securitas-low wage mill security. If you have a degree, put it away, it's not a problem. Your experience won't matter either, or they may even send you on some non security tour to be a receptionist. Hey, I thought I applied to a security job?

bobo u r right about companies hiring part time. they don't have to worry about insurance, retirement and are put into a differnet category than those working full time. that is why walmart only hires part time except for managerial ( and a lot of those are part time). they could cut their work force in half and hire full time but it will cost them more. therefore, they stick with part timers. it should be about how many employee's you have not how many full time.
