Next, after months of submitting hundreds of resumes, I submitted my resume once again to another Appleone posting in Oceanside. I resumed my anticipation because I convinced myself that this position was real and that the Huntington Beach office must just be inefficient or crazy. Anyhow, I responded to the post, put on my suit, and took two copies of resume down to Appleone in Oceanside. This time I knew for sure the posting was a positive match for my skills and there was no way I was not qualified. I arrived ten minutes early and eagerly anticipated discussing the position with the recruiter. However, after thirty minutes, I asked when the recruiter would be able to meet with me. The receptionist was replied indifferently that she would be out shortly. Once again, my desperation and my ego were at odds and I waited for her to come out from behind her desk to meet with me. After waiting another ten minutes, walk in clients were being seen before me and I was feeling slighted and my ego was at war with my need for a job. Why was I not being seen? I was dressed and ready, clean, makeup done, and looking good. What was the problem? I was friendly to everyone and was not rude or inconsiderate. After four walk-ins were seen before me, I told the receptionist I was going to leave. I had waited an entire hour for the recruiter, but was waiting for this "perfect" job. The receptionist went in the back and then returned and told me the recruiter would be right out. I smiled, but feeling slighted and irritated, I harnassed my natural inclination to walk out of the office in a huff. Once the recruiter came out I smiled and felt a strange sense of relief. She had the same air of condescension and told me to follow her to her desk. She asked me about my entire education and work history and then responded that this position was not right for me. At this point, I felt a stinging sensation that I might well up in tears. Not only had I waited for her for an hour, but my ego was taking another beating for not being "qualified" for this position.
My scores on Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access were above 90. I type 60 wpm. I know MS Project, Visio, Oracle, and AS400. What is the problem? Why am I not qualified? Once again, she responded that I am qualified for a position that was about 12 dollars an hour and working as a receptionist somewhere in Vista. My ego was slighted as was my patience. I told her that is fine and accepted her offer to submit my resume.
Now after being unemployed for 8 months I have concluded that Appleone is a scam. I have been to 2 other Appleone office since that one, WHO SAYS I DONT LEARN THE HARD WAY!!, and have gone through the same song and dance. The only office that appears legitimate is San Clemente, who have called me a few times to submit my resume for 16/hour admin jobs or receptionist jobs, but nothing has materialized. I called Appleone in another city and asked the receptionist if the jobs are in fact real. Luckily, she responded honestly and said, "no the jobs are not real. Some of them are, but most arent." I was greatly surprised by her honesty and shocked to find this out. Appleone buys ad space on Monster and Careerbuilder to promote a bogus company which submits profiles of "clients" like me to the government to get subsidies for their employment services. The scam is that Appleone posts bogus job postings and wastes the job seeker's time. We all know that time is money when you are unemployed, and the sleepless nights do not go away until you land a job that is a real career. Having a college degree and working part time at a car dealer is not my idea of career. Not only is it insulting to have your time wasted by this agency, but their business is based on fraud. I hope someone clues in to their game and shuts them down. Their business practices should not be allowed to continue. Appleone should not be posting false advertisements for jobs that do not exist.
