I was fired from being a part-time cashier at Wal-Mart last month in May for being at work under the influence of alcohol. I was there from september 2009 to may 2010. I also have a DUI on my record but It's about to be expunged. This month June the month after being fired I just started a new job, full time at Walgreens in a much better position (Beauty Advisor) and I plan to be excellent at work and stay with the company for atleast over a year. After that I plan on going to a really good beauty school and then going to work in the beauty industry, but I do want to have a nice resume for good jobs. I know the Beauty Advisor will look good but do I need to put down that I worked at wal-mart on beauty job applications if they ask for previous work experience, even though being a cashier at walmart has nothing to do with the work ill be doing? And if they ask why I was fired, do I tell them the truth? Im not sure how to handle this. I have learned from my mistakes and plan on moving forward, I just want to be able to get the best I can in life. ALSO TAXES - I didnt understand what to do. It askes 2 questions Can anyone claim you as a dependant? If not, claim yourself by typing in 1. Type in 1 if you are single and have one job. I typed in 0 on the first section and 1 in the other, and everyone says that means I am single and 0 so they will take out more of my checks but ill get more at the end of the year. But people said if I put 1 in both boxed i'd be single and 1 and id get more of my check? But that i might have to pay back at the end of the year. How much and is that for sure? id prefer to have more of my check, id like to move out without having to give plasma twice a week.
