Topic: Speak write application
June 26, 2019 / By Darla Question:
So im 15 and finally got enough free time on my hands to get a job. Yesterday I went into my local chick fil a and asked to speak to the manager. She came out and I asked to get an application form. She said, "sure" and went into the back again and came out with one. I took it and said thank you and sat down at one of the tables off to the corner and filled it out for about 10-15 mins. I asked to see her again and I handed it to her along with my résumé but she said, "oh I only need one" so she gave back my title page with the letter on it. I said thank you and she said, " thanks Gregory. (my name)" and I said thank you and left. So I was wondering if its normal to not have much talking while I'm just filling out the application and stuff. Is it bad??
Also, is it bad that she didn't take both papers to my resume?

It is not really bad. However, it is very important that you prepare your resume's first page to contain enough and relevant information about you. Most employers are becoming too busy to read through 3 or 4 page resume. You should learn how to write such resumes.
At 15, and looking for your first job, you really don't have anything relevant to put on a resume.
In addition, the information required on the application form most likely covers everything that you've put on your "resume".
You can't expect to walk into any place and get an interview on the spot. She'll read your application when she has time and call you if she's interested. Don't get your hopes up. Child labor laws are very restrictive for people under 18, and even more so for those under 16. Many places have plenty of applicants with fewer restrictions, so they don't even consider under-16s.
