  • Why is there no grace period?

    Best answer: Of course it's legal. They are paying you to be on the job and if you want the job you get there when they tell you to. Grow up.

  • Do you think it's wrong to say this?

    During a conversation we were talking about Africans and a coworker said "I don't like dealing with Africans because they're poor and I don't like how they speak." This isn't the first time either. My other co-worker wants to make a complaint and wants to involve me. What should I do?

  • What is a good amount of a raise to ask for?

    I've worked at my job for almost five years now and was promoted to manager three years ago.

    I've worked at my job for almost five years now and was promoted to manager three years ago. I've gotten one raise the entire time I've been there because the boss rarely does reviews because she says she "doesn't have time". I just found out that all new hires are starting in making the same amount as me. Me, supposedly a manager, and I'm making the same as people who aren't even responsible for a quarter of what I do each day. My boss had said she has no problem giving me an extra dollar. But I feel like that doesn't seem like enough for all that I have to do. Should I just take the extra dollar and tell her my list of responsibilities needs to decrease or ask for more money so make up for all that I have to do?

    I’m really upset that a good coworker of mine got fired. She got fired for using profanity. She said “I’m tired of weak a** ni99as”. While we had our meeting. So our manager fired her while we were on lunch which I think was petty. I feel like we are grown. So what if she cussed and it’s not like she was lying. A lot of people are lazy and she’s been telling our supervisor about it and he has done nothing. I just miss her. I still see her sometimes but it’s not the same. She was funny and a good worker. there are a lot of other workers that cuss loudly and it’s not like she did it in front of customers and she even apologized for it but she still fired her and a lot of us don’t like that. Do you think she deserve to get fired? any way she can come back maybe?

    So, I am currently working a minimum wage job but I want to find a closer one. If I were to scheduele an interview, should I mention that I can t start the job until two weeks because I have to give in my two weeks notice at another job? I feel like that soundsa bit rude in a way.

  • Prospective employer thinks I'm overqualified. How do I respond?

    Best answer: Most people put their current or last salary as the minimum.. so they assumed you were earning what you put as desired salary. Also if you are over qualified they assume you will work for them only until you find a better/higher paying job. It's highly unlikely that anything you say will change their mind at... show more

    Ive walked out of two retail jobs and now I’m trying to find a job while going to college just to pay bills and I just am finding it very hard to find a job, so far I had one interview in a couple weeks and didn’t hear back from them. I know walking off is terrible, but how much of an impact does it have on jobs for teenagers/young adults? Cause I know a lot of teenagers quit and go through a lot of jobs? I just want a job to be able to afford living. I’m worried I won’t find anything.

  • Should I confront my manager for doing something dodgy when I’ve already resigned?

    I recently resigned from my job and am one week into my four week notice period. I just discovered that they’re advertising my job as two full time roles, both with a higher salary than I’ve been getting.

    I recently resigned from my job and am one week into my four week notice period. I just discovered that they’re advertising my job as two full time roles, both with a higher salary than I’ve been getting. I’ve worked at the company for three years and have always worked super hard (which is proven by the fact they need two full time roles to cover my work!) so I’m feeling extremely hurt and unappreciated. I have a good relationship with my boss despite me not always agreeing with the way she treats others, and I was keen to leave gracefully and without rocking the boat, but this has really crossed the line for me and I don’t know if I should confront her about it. On one hand, there’s not really anything anyone can do to change the outcome, but on the other I also want her to know that she’s done the wrong thing and damaged a strong working relationship. What should I do?!

I wore a dress on Monday and my co-worker wore the exact dress the following day. Sometimes these women will compliment me and then also report everything I do to the boss. One of them just called me a lucky *****. I was offended because she said it in a mean way. When I reported to the boss, he said I was being sensitive and said, "you are a lucky *****". Should I be offended my boss said this?

I also explained that I just haven't been mentally healthy lately and working there has been making me so much worse. I also told her that I could work a couple more weeks if she needed me to. I've never quit a job before, so I just don't know if I said the right thing. My boss is super nice and me leaving has nothing to do with the people there so I just don't want to sound rude as I quit.

    Hey, so I made a big mistake today at a job interview at Target. So the interview went really well, I ended up getting the job and they proceeded to give me an orientation date for the beginning of November. However, when asked if I had been arrested, I had said no. I was pretty nervous at the time, this is my first Job Interview and I had no intentions in lying or anything but I was arrested and put on probation at the age of 17 for assault. I made a mistake, I understand that but my question is, will affect me and will I possibly not get the job or is there any way out this situation I put myself in. I wanted to put that I have been arrested after, but I felt like I was too late. No rude comments please, just a guy looking for some answers. Please, and thank you.

    I am starting to believe that job hopping is the only way to see a significant pay hike. I recently got promoted but was not given a raise or a bonus. With the experience with the job I have now, I see external positions that almost pay double than my current one and I meet all the qualifications. I think it’s a hassle to job hop but it seems like that’s the only way to improve my situation. I’m pretty sure down the road I will continue to apply for better paying jobs after getting more experience.
