Employer "Pet Peeves" about Job Seekers
The Workforce Development Division (DLIR) surveyed a few of Kauaiʻs finest employers to determine their "pet peeves", things past job applicants have done that remove themselves from contention for a vacant position. These are some reasons why an employer did not consider hiring an employee. We looked for "unusual things" that an employee might have overlooked, not basic job search expectations such as "dress appropriately" or "be on time". Consider your own impressions when you are the job applicant...if you see yourself doing any of these "pet peeves," take care to avoid them!
