Awh thank you! ; w; I did get hired! The interviewer actually didn't even ask many questions other than things like if I'd have transportation and about how I'm homeschooled q wq

Best advice I was given was to take a minute before answering the questions! Sometimes it helps collect your thoughts, the people at my job now joked about taking a sip of water when I needed to think, which actually helps!

Ooh that sounds like a good idea! ; o; I know sometimes I stumble and stutter when I don't think things through, so I'll definitely try and take it slow ; w; Thank you!

Yes , I have . Okay I live in EU so might be a little different but indeed you will meet with a lot of rude customers. Do never take it as a personal attack. If anyone is rude to you for no reason it's not your faulth. This is their only source of happiness, never let them take your energy.

Yeah, I'm going to have to prepare myself for that! ; 0; I think I might get hired either as a cashier or a sales associate (the places I applied for were toys, apparel, home goods, and fabrics, I think?)

Oh gosh I forgot about Black Friday!! ; o; I wonder if I'd have to work that day if I get hired omg 
Apparently Walmart only hires part time now, so I wonder what my hours will be like omg

try not to take rude customers personally! at a big store youll often get them, some are assholes but most are just having a horrible day and this one issue has been the last straw for them.
Take frequent foot breaks or if youre standing still, shift your weight a lot!
Make sure you drink a lot so you can stay lively during work times!

Thank you for the tips! ; w; Yeah, I hope I'll be able to handle them properly if that does happen! 

I'm not sure what position I'll be interviewed for yet (I applied for either sales associate or cashier), but I'm excited for it q wq

I hope so, too! ; w; This is the only place I had applied to; and I applied a few weeks ago. Literally just yesterday I was thinking that I'd have to try and apply elsewhere since I hadn't gotten called back yet omg 

I will! Hope you get the job, too! > u<

I think I've only been to a Popeyes once at an airport
I don't remember if it was good or not, but I remember that.
You seem really nice, and I'm sure that they will totally want you there!

Aww thank you so much! ; v ;

Yeah, my family doesn't go to Popeyes much, either q wq But thankfully the one my brother is working at is relatively small, so maybe it'll be a bit easier. He just went to a meeting yesterday and the manager there seems pretty nice (from what he told us)!
Awh I'm glad you think so! q 0q //cries I'm super awkward irl (and online lol) so hopefully this will help me get out of my shell! You seem so sweet too, it'd be awesome if you got the job > u< Will this be your first job, too? ; w;

A good manager is always the first step to people liking their job I've noticed!
So I hope he likes his job sometime down the road.

Aww thank you so much (Oh yeah same awkward so bad irl)
but yeah this will be my first job.
If you ever wanna talk about something other than jobs I would be glad to give you my skype or discord!

Yeah, I hope  he'll start to like it, too! ; u; He was starting to get a little discouraged (thought he had only worked 2 days), but I think the meeting helped out a bit. Today is his first day working an 8 hour shift.

No problem! ; u; And yeah! I could note you my skype, too > u< I haven't tried discord, though!
