we got a new walmart by us, not even a mile away, sucks in a way.
anyways, i applied about a month ago, (also applied previously 2 years in a row) they scheduled me for an interview, manager told me she will call me back within a week for my 2nd interview and more detail. about a week goes by, i call them back, and a different lady tells me that my application is none competitive (marked red) and that at this point she cant do anything about it and told me to re-apply in about a month. 1 month goes by, i re-apply and call them back the next day, manager tells me the exact same cr@p and tells me its due to my exam that i took at the end of my application (i don't remember taking any exam) so i hang up cuz im already pissed off and i call Walmart HR, i asked the guy and he checked my application and told me its marked green, everything looks great and it shows that its competitive, i call back the manager, she almost instantly tells me the opposite, says that they only "see" what the "above or home office does" tells me to wait for 90-120 days and then re-apply, i told her look lady, i dont have time to wait 60-120 days!? thats ridiculous, i really need a job, its close to home, and you guys are rejecting me cuz of some stupid "exam" that i supposedly took, you don't even know me or how i work, give me a chance, hire me. all she said was ok, wait 60-120 days and hung up. I think thats ****!n ridiculous when they reject people that have a desire to work.2 AnswersCorporations7 years ago

i was wandering, how can i get into Law Enforcement in Oregon? I graduated with criminal justice. Clean record and have my DPSST and defensive tactics training including baton, hand cuffing, asp/pepper spray self defense and pistol/range.
I know for Washington State, you need to go through Public Safety Testing, they test your physical, written and oral interview including a lie detector interview.
But, how is it for Oregon? Were do i start?
I cant find any info on it.
Is there a website like public safety testing or do i just go a local police/sheriff/trooper station and apply?
please answer respectfully.

so, my uncle told me about reincarnation, i heard about it a while ago, and i decided to do some research on my own.
It makes sense to me in way because God said, you will reap what you sow or Karma in other words. I am a Christian, i believe in God, but this is very interesting, i found couple places in the Bible were the Bible does not support it or deny reincarnation, Example: when apostles asked Jesus and John if he was the Reincarnation of Eli. It only becomes more suspicious when they asked, and they said the scriptures and prophets told ahead of time that Eli, Moses and Christ will return. Bible also talks about us having new bodies, a new earth and so forth. Just want to hear your thoughts on it.7 AnswersReligion & Spirituality7 years ago
