• How to nicely ask employer to make a hiring decision?

    It's been almost a month since the final interview, but the application status is still on "Interviewing" - I sent a thank you email earlier, but the hiring manager was out of town and didn't respond.

  • How can I make around $500,000 a year?

    By the time I’m 30 I want to be making about half a million a year. I don’t care how much I have to work. I work on a farm and I love my job even though I’m working nearly 60 hours a week. I’m a real hard worker and I just want to make good money without going to collage. Anyone have any suggestions?

Which i really don't think they are. But i think im being ripped off. You are supposed to get a parking pass the first day you work there. So I've been paying 1.75$ 5 days a week. Just to work for 4 hours. I like the job itself. But the people in charge of my parking tickets are unprofessional. If i need to get to higher management. How do i do that?

  • What Is A Really Great Place To Work At 16? (please read details?

    I am 16 years old, 17 in March. I got my very first job at McDonald's and was there for a little over a year and a half.

    I am 16 years old, 17 in March. I got my very first job at McDonald's and was there for a little over a year and a half. I then got a job at a store called Tilly's in my local mall and the opportunity is great, but my manger stresses me out and the job feels like I`m watching paint dry; It's just so slow and stressful at the same time. I worked fast food and retail. Now I know I don't want to do that when I`m older so I guess that's a plus, but I hate my current job and want something else. I am incredibly sociable with a really great, friendly personality (I`m not tooting my own horn, I just get this a lot) and am a very hard worker. Unfortunately I am pretty much fully committed to track & field so I'd be able to work a max of maybe 20 hours a week. What would be a good job for a kid like me. Something that would make me not stress about waking up early everyday for school, then working for 5 hours after? Any responses would be amazing, thanks everyone!

  • Do potential employers look up your Facebook? When would they do that?

    Best answer: They may, or they may not. It sort of depends on them and the impression you left them with at the interview.

  • I stood up to a colleague at work and now they're giving me the silent treatment?

    Best answer: My opinion is that you need a third party to help resolve this.
    I'd speak with HR , finger pointing and "the silent treatment " is bullying.

    By all means arrange a meeting with her via HR, but you need a neutral party there.

  • 51k in student loans with a worthless BA should I add another 10k and get an Engineering AS from a community college to get a decent job?

    Best answer: The only thing that an Engineering AS from a community college is good for, is to get you into a university so that you can complete the Jr and Sr level courses toward a Bachelors degree in engineering.

    There *might* be a few openings out there for people with an associates degree, but probably not much more in terms of pay or career opportunity than you already have with a BA.

  • I'm picking faster than many of the other associates, but still my productivity scores are one of the lowest. Why?

    Best answer: You only Think you are faster. Are you making mistakes during rushing. Have you developed a system that saves steps when fulfilling the order? Too many breaks.

    I was working as a waiter on a quiet midweek day and I was taking finished plates back to the kitchen when I felt a stare and immediately looked to my right and 1 of these 3 girls was smiling/smirking at me and looked me down at my side/arm when I looked at her (im tall and lanky and my arms looked a little bit big too because I had one or two layers in underneath) it was for about 3 seconds and then as I walked out of sight I heard a slight difference noise (couldn’t make it out) a bit later 2 of them were ordering food at the bar and on their way back I felt a stare while I was standing at the kitchen gantry bored and looked over to one of them girls (the friend of the girl who smiled at the start) on her own walking back to her table and when I looked over she laughed hard and put her hand to her mouth still looking at me then I looked away. I immediately got upset about if and I went to my team leader and assistant manager and refused to take their food to them I wanted them kicked out but my team leader wouldn't coz he said I can't be sure they were making fun of me. later on I had to check the toilets and I walked upstairs to girls toilets and the door opens and it was them girls I looked up and the girl that laughed earlier smiled at me, and I overheard em saying whys a boy going in girls toilets and walked past me as normal. I’m a guy btw This is me if it helps: https://m.imgur.com/a/YlAAhlA (3 photos)
