Just been for a job interview cleaning hotel rooms in a poxy little hotel looks more like a dodgy motel... anyway, bloke wants three references. Ok can give him one from previous job I had for 7 years, and temp job I've just done for 2 weeks but then wants one from 8 years ago. The manager retired the day I left he was 68 and not well I doubt he's still alive. It was also a contract cleaner company and they no longer have the contract there haven't for 8 years so how I'd get on I'll never know. It seems a bit stupid. My reference for the past 7 years is a really good one surely that's enough!!! Not that it matters his attitude stunk!

Anyway, job I really want closes tomorrow so fingers crossed.

I didn't think employers gave any references at all any more?

This is what I keep hearing. Well I have one from my 7 year job, why he'd need one from so long ago is beyond me. Have another interview with some where else on Friday, hopefully that'll work out!
