Just had a weird interview last Thursday. I usually get along with people but I really didn't vibe well with this manager. He constantly cut me off in the middle of answering question. He would go on and on about how much he's accomplished and I'll learn so much from taking his lead. I was glad the interview was over and almost positive that there will not be any follow up. But they called me back yesterday to discuss an offer. The pay is better than my current job but I'm seriously concerned how I can perform well under that manager. I also did some research asking other contacts who worked with that manager and everyone said it is a horrible workplace. Is there any point to negotiate or should I just turn down the offer?

A couple of coworkers quit in the past few weeks. I've already been taking more shifts than I can manage. Just got a message from the manager asking if the rest of the team can "step up more" to get through this low capacity challenge. Is it reasonable to ask for more monetary incentives for taking on more? Don't want to act like I'm taking advantage of the company but this is too much.

So I left my last job because it was truly terrible, management didn't know what they were doing and I eventually felt that said job was 100x more difficult than it needed to be which was extremely frustrating. But I heard that's not good to say when interviewers ask why I left. Why?

It's not really what you are saying but the way that you say it. You can say 'I felt the processes were unnecessarily convoluted. For example we were instructed to do x while my suggestion to do y was repeatedly ignored even though it would have increased productivity' -- If you can get across that frustration without the emotional content, or my personal favourite would be make it entertaining, then you can still convey your motivation without coming across as being difficult to work with.

I've worked in places where I had uniforms and it truly was a money and time saver, due to having to do less laundry and buy fewer clothes. What do you prefer?

💖 Strict uniforms, that way I don't have to spend $$ on clothing or too much washing

💯 Company color or shirt and jeans, can still add my own identity without spending $$ on too much clothing

👏🏽 Specified casual or business dress code but no uniform, I like wearing my own stuff to the job

Any other options that I missed or want to share the "why" to your reaction? Comment below! #watercooler

If you have any idea what you want to do in the future, seek a job in that area. You have to ask yourself, what do you like to do? If you don't like the job, you won't last long. Customer service can entail fast food, big box stores, department stores, garden centers, clothing stores, etc. Next, see about the job's perks- such as clothing store do you get a discount, can you move up from the position, is the job close to your home, transportation issues.

The Jobcase team on this website is constantly posting at home work positions. While they are not going to, nor should they, vouch for any companies providing job opportunities. I would recommend you check them out. Make sure you run a BBB check before moving forward. The BBB.org Site, (Better Business Bureau) will validate the legitimacy of the company. I hope this was helpful. Good luck!
