There's actually a very funny story behind this. I've been trying to get a job at a math/English learning center near my house for about two months now and I finally got it. The first day I went in I didn't call first, I just walked in and asked if there was a job available. There was so I filled out the application and she told she'd call me in a day or two. A week later and she hadn't called me yet, so I just walked in again. She told me about the other forms I had to fill out, so I did and she said she'd call me again. Another week later and she hadn't called, so I just walked in again. They asked me if I was ready for my test. This didn't surprise me too much that I had to take a test to make sure I could teach, but it did surprise me that I walked in unannounced and they seemingly expected me. I also surprised me that the first mention of the test was "are you ready for it?" like I had been preparing. The test was actually a lot of fun and had a lot of math that I hadn't worked with in a long time. I love math so I had a blast digging through my memory to solve each problem. I passed so she said she'd call me when she did the background check. Two weeks later I walked in and she said she couldn't find the form and she'd call me when she did. A week later I walked in again and she said the form needed to be updated. A week later again she was gone and the form wasn't updated yet. A week later again again the center was closing for winter break and I should check back in again afterwords. Today they I went in and the form was finally there. It basically said that I gave them permission to do a background check. I filled it out, they shook my hand, apologized for the long wait, and said I could start working as soon as the background check cleared and they'd call me when it did. I'm just going to go in every day and check to make sure. I don't trust the phone call promise anymore.
My favorite part about this story is that I never had an interview. I don't know if my persistence was enough or if they just forgot to give me one, but it doesn't matter to me.
I'm going to be a middle school math teacher when I graduate college, so this job is perfect.
