Today, I was unsuccessful in getting a job at a supermarket. The same supermarket I used to work at. I now have a degree but can't even get a job at a place I used to work. FML

They probably see you as overqualified now.

Those jobs are tailored for younger, less-qualified people. Mainly because they assume that all you'll do is work there until you find a job in your field and then leave.

No but training someone to work for them for 3 years verses 3 months may sway their choice...

Possibly, but if OP has worked for them before then they don't need to train them, they're saving money in that respect. We have this problem in the UK and its usually because they want to hire someone under 21 because the minimum wage is cheaper.

Bigger and better things coming your way! Take it as an opportunity for more doors to open!

what's ur Snapchat?

Why did you get a degree to go for a job where you didn't need one?

You're an idiot

look on the bright side, now you don't have to work at a supermarket! that's always a win in my book.

So if any cereal needs more iron… and you have some ore, I could… add more." "…" "People also track tiny pebbles in when th—okay, I'll see myself out."

You should've majored in Grocery Retail.

You are overqualified. They know you will be trying to leave for a better job right away and then they need to find someone else.
