@worldtraveler:  You’re probably over qualified.

I applied for retail jobs during grad school. I never even got a call. They could tell by my education level that it would just be a backup job and I wouldn’t stick around for long.

I would suggest leaving out education details or anything to give away that you want a “backup” job.

@worldtraveler:  Possibly.

People with open availability will have first dibs on an interview. 

But I do think these jobs are more competetive now because so many people have been laid off or let go from their regular jobs. 

Have you looked into restaurant? You’d make a lot more money serving than you would working retail.

Retail might be a back up for you but it’s not for a lot of people and for that reason places can be picky because they have a lot to choose from. Most aren’t looking to hire someone they know could and would quit the second they get hired.
