Lowes in Kailua,Kona Hawaii,had a sign saying they were hiring. I called the store and asked to speak to the Human Resource person. After trying to call 3 times, person was either not available or in an orientation meeting. I left my name and phone no. A message came on m email saying that I was not selected. I just wanted to try and get to be interviewed so that I could give a better history of myself and I would be able to give both character and job references. My previous employment does not show my full capabilities and I wanted a chance for an interview,which I feel that I can present my qualifications.
After leaving my phone no.and not getting a call back.I called back and spoke to Christine?,I explained to her about my applying online and was trying to find out the reason for being denied or whatever reason that I was not being considered, she took down my name and number and said she would go online,check on my application and call me right back!. This was in the morning,Friday Nov. 11,2011. Its Monday Nov.14 and no phone call yet. I have applied at Lowes once before and was not given an interview. I shop there often, and have dealt with people who were not as qualified as I am and the knowledge,that I have.
I’ve been in construction for over 25 years and have worked with many different contractors over the years. I’m a very good handyman and have never hired a plumber to do any work at my house. I worked as a general laborer in the Laborers Union, for 13 year,and 12years as a journeyman mason. I have done work in ceramic tile,painting,drywall,some basic carpentry, I am able to install ceiling fans, electrical wall plugs,but no major electrical work. I am applying for a stocking position, and have driven and operated all types of forklifts,including, Gradall. I am 59 years old,in excellent condition,don’t smoke, don’t drink, and will pass any drug test. I am writing this letter, just to try and get a fair shot at this position.
