Valid driver license needed?!

Why is it that most of the jobs want you to have a valid driver's license but alot of them you won't be driving their company cars??? Is this NOT discrimination? Don't we have enough that eliminates us from certain job positions like education level and back ground checks? Whether or not someone has a valid driver's license isn't important for all jobs. Give me a BREAK....

It is more for identification than driving for the company. When an employer asks for ID they just want to know if your…

Fast forward to 2 weeks ago. They called me and OFFERED me the position, no drug test needed, everything I asked for money wise. I was over the moon, my dream job!!!! I worked for 4 fricking days & they tell me they r downsizing!!!!!! Then why the…

Good background....no luck finding work

I have been looking off and on for a good position. I have great skills and experience and a wide array of talent. I have bachelors degrees and an MBA. STILL NO LUCK.

Patience and prayer worked for me. Your blessing will come in due season. Take care.

Discouraged

After yet again getting another job offer only to have it disappear when they did a background check on a mistake that happened 12 years ago is discouraging. I'm not that person that I was 12 years ago. I'm college educated, have manager/marketing experience, excellent people skills but when it gets to the background check all that goes out of the window. All I get offered to me is server jobs which after 7 plus years of serving I'm burned out on…

I'm having the same problem and you're right, it's VERY discouraging! I've had THREE rejections just this past week! But, I think…

Conditional offer/ I got it!

EDIT: I passed everything and start Monday.
I'm so happy and excited!

So I received a conditional offer. If I pass my background check and my drug test. Fingers crossed please! I have no doubt I'll pass the background and drug test. But until I'm actually given hours, I'm going to continue to worry. I seriously need a job. Hopefully once this is all done and I'm working this massive ball of dread in my abdomen will finally go away.

I hope you are able to meet all of the requirements for the job Jill Betts ! keep us posted.

Stuck on my word

Hello everyone. After the hurricane María as everyone else that was affected by it I came back to where my heart has always been, the glorious Texas. Well the thing is that I came here because a job was offered to me and I explicitly told my employers to be that I was Medical Cannabis patient and that I might have residual of THC on my bloodstream and that according to Texas laws that can disqualify me for the job position but they keep saying…

I think when you work with family or friends there is a VERY delicate balance. It also sounds like his mother is a bit overbearing…

Background Checks

I've applied for over 30 positions and only two responses. I have a professional resume and 20+ years experience. I recently found out that I have an unpaid traffic ticket that requires me to appear in court, however, I have to have the amount of said ticket. Unfortunately, I need to work to accumulate these funds. Is it possible that this is the reason behind the lack of employer interest? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Update…

That's ridiculous,an unpaid traffic ticket? Do you know how long the employers go BK on the background check?
