yeah phone up for me lol, hmmm or maybe not, what will you say?
Another theory: only certain types of people apply for those jobs.
Nobody really wants to employ someone who isn't going to last very long. The fact that you are more qualified means you're not likely to stay very long.
I think he's right. I had huge difficulties getting jobs in some really crap places. I think it's a combination of this, + they don't want a full time student because they want a full time worker, + personality clash, for example I had considerably better qualifications than the boss of the store I worked in, she only had a few GCSEs. They don't want somebody who they don't relate to.
Its also hard to respect a boss if they appear to be an oink.
