There was nothing in my area that was open. Maybe in yours?

3 of the major grocery store chains are hiring temp workers here in Texas. I suspect most grocery stores need extra help right now.

This job has been documented as too much physical work for one person, even if healthy. Bathroom breaks are also limited and ambulances are routinely called because people get hurt or collapse. I would only do this as a last resort. You can google the news articles about it.

Overqualified?

Maybe Amazon will consider us "overqualified"? We have college degrees...Substitute teaching could be considered as a "white-collar" job...

Who knows? I might apply if things get really worse...

I don't think I have the physical stamina for those types of jobs. I don't think they'll care if you have a degree.

Not hiring college graduates.

Some businesses are reluctant to hire college graduates...

They think that the college graduates will not last last too long...They believe that the college graduates will get tired of doing the "menial" job quickly...

If you think it'll look bad, don't tell them. I think they'll take it as a positive, though. Shows you have follow through. Having a college degree, I mean. Especially if you're not 22 years old.

I think our best bet is babysitting, at least for most of you guys, because most people on here like the little kids.

Amazon is saying it is hiring people with no job experience, so I wouldn’t worry about that. You have to be in really good shape. There was a guy who was 21 on the news who said he would come home and not be able to do anything as he was exhausted. You walk like 8 miles a day and they treat you look sh*t.

They ending up pulling out of the NY project. I used to work at Ups and it was the same thing. You could only do a 4 hour shift because the work was so grueling. Breaks were few and it was really tough loading those boxes.

About 24 years ago, when I was "only" about 38, I applied for temporary work loading trucks for Fedex.
I lasted about a week because the work was so grueling. I don't think the drivers had to do any loading.
