Oh well all I can do is keep trying while working my part time job, I am still in the running for UPS and PEPSI which I would love the Pepsi job.
You can request a written statement in most states. At the very least, it will let you know why, so you can work to rectify that situation before your next interviews.

To be fair... I've seen some brand new equipment sit and rust because it NEVER ran. Pieces that had to be towed off of trucks with recovery vehicles because even brand new, with less than one hour on the motor, it wouldn't run.

And we're talking even after civilian specialists are called in. They always ask, "does it have a battery? How bout fuel?" yeah, everyone expects a Marine to make that mistake. The civilian contractors wild joke about how the Marines couldn't keep anything running... But little did they know, they kept a lot of stuff running that never should've worked. And the companies those contractors worked for were the ones supplying crappy equipment...

My personal favorite. A bud of mine from boot camp was sent to light armored reconnaissance as a scout and I used to swing by and visit. They had a brand spanking new LAV come in, had to be pulled off the truck. It never would run. Civilians were called in, and they couldn't get it to run.

After about three years, one fella decided he was just "gonna try one more time before his discharge".

Damn thing fired right up and ran like a beast for maybe 30 minutes before the motor blew. Old fuel, old batteries... Even the tires had gone flat.

Your Blackhawks are playing too well. They will die in the playoffs. It is just neither of my teams will get there! My birthright Flyers are in the toilet, and my adopted Lightning is too schitzophrenic.

So how many ftf members are youz guyz gonna invite to the wedding?
Oh God please invite me but not if its a indoor event .I promise to stay hidden For about 500.00 I can put on a fireworks show you wont ever forget , the other antics are free , you can even invite C3 so he can shake his head at me .
AND I will give ammo and snap on tools for wedding gifts

I got married at the fish pond I grew up fishing in , we had a old man cater with bbq , everyone was barefooted and the rest of the crowd showed up drunk from the beach music festival , we left the alter to ring of fire by mr cash . I love weddings and till this day my wedding was still the best one
Buy my God it was one of the hottest days in April on record and my fat azz in a monkey suit sweating like crazy .
2nd was my buddy at a 1k ac farm , we had a few razors mules and golfcarts along with 2 pigs

I am so sorry. I am in your situation, too. It's tough. You didn't get the job you interviewed for last week because you're going to get that Pepsi job that you want more. Best of luck to you.

Here's an embarrassing but funny story about me. At work, my computer froze and I was going to power it down them power it back up to see if it just needed to reboot itself. I hit the button and it wouldn't turn off. I tried several times. My co-worker had no suggestions. I called the IS guys and one comes to the lab, pushes and holds the power button and the computer turns off. He just stands up and looks at me. I was so embarrassed. I didn't know you had to push and hold the button down. I was just pushing it quickly. I hate when I do things like that.

Bite your tongue. The Blackhawks are kicking rear end in ice rinks all over the US and Canada. Not only are they going to make it to the playoffs but I think the Stanley Cup will be spending another year here in Chicago. Did you see that game against the Oilers last night? DAMN!!! They are 16-0-3. Peaking early? These are young strong men. They're going to take it all the way.

I have a sick stomach today. I'm sipping Ginger Ale and hoping to feel better.
