Ok, I answered an ad in Craigslist a few nights ago regarding a customer service position. It turns out that it’s basically a work-from-home sales position — thanks, but no thanks.
What really chapped my hide was that in every correspondence with this person, she spelled my name wrong. EVERY TIME! Considering that I sign my name at the end of every email, AND it’s on my resume, AND it is listed in the “From” field in the headers of every single email I send out, HOW fucking hard can it be to take the extra one second of effort and spell it correctly!?!?!?
That’s most probably my biggest pet peeve, and is THE quickest way to turn me off to something.
