So today I put in an application for a job, what will they do, or what will they ask/say to me. It was my first job app. so Im super nervous

it's an ice cream place, and all the girls that work there are 15-18. I put the job app in and all they said was thanks. I put my phone number down and everything else that your suppose to put. Im so nervous. What goes on from this point out like if they say I can work there what happens after I put the job app in? Sorry, again this is my first time doing this job application thing....

Chances are, you will have to call them and remind them that you turned an app in. Say you are checking up on the status of your application. I've done that so many times without calling, they must forget or get the impression you don't want the job that badly.

They give you an interview and ask you questions about yourself

Info about previous experiences is good if they offer it like community service.

They just ask if you stuff about yourself. You'll get the job. Most ice cream places will hire young people.

You have to have the look to get hire. First impression is pivotal.

if they are looking for someone they will call you and have you go down there to talk with them about what you will have to do and if you think you will be able to do that and the hours you will be working. but if they are not looking for people to work right now they will not call at all

I recently got a job at a similar situation and what you need to do is to keep going back, to speak to the manager to "check up on your application" the manager will either tell you what you need to bring in, maybe a date to come back, but you will need a food handler's permit for sure.

First...You should take some deep breaths, and relax yourself. Once they look at the application, they will determine if you qualify for the job. Being an ice-cream store, the qualifications to work there will be minimal. They probably will call you in for an interview. When you arrive for the interview, make sure that you show-up about 10 minutes early. Dress nice, (but don't over-due it.) The fact that you don't have a work history, they will ask you questions about yourself, and probably inquire about what extra-carricular classes you take at school. Just be honest with your answers. Try not to appear nervous. Do not go into too much detail with your answers. Also, upon arrival, shake the interviewers hand. And when the interview is concluded, shake their hand. And say "thank-you, I appreciate the interview" And if you don't hear from them after 3 days, give them a call, and politely ask them what your standing is in-regard for the job that you applied for. Just remember, this is the beginning of your working-life. Jobs will come and go, and you will learn from each one. Relax, and have as much fun with it as you can. Good-luck...

Be proactive! If you haven't heard from them in 2 days. Go in and ask to speak to the owner or manager.. Say, " I put my application in, Wednesday, and I'd like to know when a decision will be made." Say it with a smile and follow it by saying " I'd be very happy to work here , I hope I hear from you" ;)
