I know where you are coming from. Now a days, all applications are online, they are no longer paper applications. They make you take these stupid integrity tests, asking you more ""unlikely, very unlikely, likely, extremely likely" questions than they asked you personal information!
The previous answerers are uneducated and obviously ignorant of the way things are. I worked for a Fortune 500 company (I will not say who it was) and they give this psychological screening to EVERY employee that walks through the door. Companies like Verizon, Sprint, and other huge companies also give these tests. They use it to weed out the people they don't want. These are not grocery stores, they are good paying jobs. Careers.
When looking for a job, I can understand how you will grow SICK of these stupid tests because almost everyone does it now. I understand how you can spend over an hour answering some questions just to never receive a call for an interview.
You know, HPV goes away after time.
And, if you have no health insurance and from what you said, it sounds like you are struggling financially. Go to your Board of Social Services agency tomorrow and apply for cash assistance, health insurance, food stamps, etc. They can even help you with your rent!!! There is NOTHING wrong with this. Even if they only give you $100 in food stamps every month, every little bit counts!!!
I get FREE health insurance for myself, my kids, husband. We don't pay for ANYTHING, free copays, free prescriptions, unlimited doctors visits, free ObGyn visits, free pediatrician visits, free lab tests and dentist visits, etc. Because I am such low income. I was not always in this situation, life just sometimes throws you for a loop. Ya know?
I would strongly suggest you go there tomorrow, just get online and find out where you County's Board of Social Services is. Please go so I don't go to sleep wondering if you were okay!!! They will definately help you.
In the meantime, consider going to the unemployment office. They have a division called the One Stop Shop, where if you are unemployed you can get up to $4000 in a grant to help you get training in any career that is in demand. I don't know your background but there are programs that are like a year, such as nursing (LPN or CNA) that take a year or less. They will pay for it, you will soon be making enough money and you will never find yourself in this situation again.
I have been unemployed since March, I lost my job and CANNOT find a job. I am currently collecting unemployment, but it will be ending soon. I have even tried grocery stores, retail, customer service, telemarketing, etc and they won't give me an interview! WTF!!!
But I am going to college now, and although I am struggling, I will soon have an education. I am going into Nursing, it only takes a year and when I graduate I will be making ATLEAST $18/hour. Probably closer to $20/hour. You should consider this. You could get health insurance if you work at the hospital :)
I wish you the best of luck, please feel free to email me anytime. I also love to complain about things and I would be more than happy to listen!
Also can't find a job, struggling to pay bills, can't afford to buy my kids milk to eat their cereal, can't afford to get gas to drive to college. But I am GONNA make it!!! I will NOT give up!!
