Below is a calculator to determine what a 'living wage' would be in your location. Do you think this is accurate?

a) provide a living wage
b) if providing a sub-living wage, THEN provide an internal... see more

Hello, so I started at the hotel back in November, upon being hired I was told I would be in charge of the Outlets department and would be starting at 15.50. This was a lie, I was in charge of the Banquet department as well as managed the Outlets area because the person they hired was not ready for that job and I was only being paid 13.50. When I brought this up to management they simply said, give me till April and we will see what can be done... see more

Interesting little article claiming the 1 reason people quit is when they feel disrespected. Have you quit an employer before? If so, why? What advice would you give to a fellow Jobcaser who is thinking about quitting today?

I quit because I could not get over the nervousness and insecurity I felt after 2 1/2 months on the job.

I am sorry to hear that L Montoya sometimes it's just not worth it to stay if a job is making you feel miserable!

I wasn't fired I quit

6 years back I was employed and then choose to quit my job as it separated me from my spouse. Now I have a toddler at home and decided to get back to work finally in the same IT industry and not even getting called for interviews. On top of having stale skills which i know I can update, there are no one looking for people with visa status like mine where I am a dependent and still can work.

I am 53 and as a result of leaving a job of 22 years I seem to be unable to get hired. Is that because I only had 3 jobs in 22 years or is it my age that no one wants to hire me.

When did managers not have a choice to pick their team? Has the world become so computerized that companies will not let the person in charge, who's job is on the line not pick their employees? Online apps may streamline the process but fail to give managers the true input they need to hire. ..just this old man's thought.
Oh btw, employees usually don't quit their job, they quit their boss.
