yahan tu bhai ab lagta hai saab soo rahain hain.
AOA, Hi.......your this line made me to reply to this forum again:-)
Me and one of the forum member Mr. Atif is in contact here in Saskatoon city......let me also share my experience with you guys.
I am here in Saskatoon city and its 3000 KM away from Toronto and i have also settled from Toronto to Saskatoon because i thought that i never listened the name of Saskatoon city and thought that there would be very less desi people but Saskatoon is also full of desi people and people are moving here just to sponsor their family for free. Saskatoon is like villege if we compare it with the toranto, hamilton and missaugae cities but this city is getting very expensive and the rent has got doubled in just last 2 years.
I am currently doing job in WALLMART super store and the i am one of the 350 associates of this store, i am hired as "CUSTOMER SERVICES SPECIALIST". Let me share how i got selected for this job. I applied this job through website and after one week i got a telephonic call for interview, its was an interview for half an hour and she asked me so many questions related to customer services, how would u deal a aggresive customer? if u dont know anything about the customer quesires than how are you doing to help this customer? if a employee is not doing the job as harder as other do then what would be your response in this regard? etc etc........then they called me for group interview after two days, there were 12 candidates and only me and other guy were desi and from Pakistan. They asked so many questions and also asked us to do a demo for selling a product to teenager customer and there were almost 7 management people who were taking interview of all of us and one by one they were asking so many questions. Luckily i was selected for job and than they started 2 days orientation for selected candidates. We have safety training, and so many training for 3 days and than we had to clear the test with 80 marks otherwise you wont be selected. I was offered 10.25 per hour job and after so many interview and formalities. I never had this kinds of interview, trainings, orientations and quizes in my four years of banking job in Pakistan:-)
After all its a kind of customer services jobs and covers labor jobs like opening boxes, shelfing stockes etc.........people say that two years ago there was not any people in the Saskatoon and there was not any interview for getting this kind of jobs in saskatoon but now there are so many people and because the employers have so many options to recruit people thats why they started such recruitment process for even labor job.
Our desi people are doing such jobs here and one of the famous jobs among desi are security guard jobs. There are few people who have good office jobs and they are lucky.
