It's hard

Executive, Operations and was laid off last March. I was employed with my last company for 22 years before they eliminated my position.
It's hard out here. I have nothing but respect for everyone going through this struggle. I actually had a company ask me (third interview) to create a 15 minute presentation on what I believed they needed to work on. I did this, and they even said I nailed it and yet they went with an internal candidate.
I have…

Same here I’m thankful for the job I have but I want a better one I quit my last job and they won’t hire me back I was there14…

Census Bureau Jobs

Has anyone else experienced the red tape involved with getting approved for a job at the Census Bureau? I applied December 6th of 2018 and I am still waiting on my background check to be approved. I do not smoke, do not drink and have no criminal past that I know of. I think they could make the process a little more streamlined to get people in there faster. Has anyone else experienced working for Federal Government and what were your experiences…

Drug Testing?

I want to say now that I do not use illegal drugs. I have never used illegal drugs. I almost certainly never will use illegal drugs. Marijuana is legal in my state for recreational use and I still have never used it.

Drug testing as a condition of employment should be illegal. Will I submit to drug test? Yes. Do I believe that it is right for an employer to require a drug test as a condition of employment? No. Without any evidence to back it up…

That doesn't sounds like John's point. He's simply saying we are protected by law from self incrimination but in all actuality, we…

A Job Offer........YAY!!!!!!!

I would like to let everyone know that I have been given a job offer. I was not looking to returning to the Hospitality Industry, but I can't frown at an opportunity such as the one I'm being offered. At this point I'm waiting on the background check to come back; and after that I should have a starting date.

This job offer has truly been a blessing, specially after being out of work for well over 2 months, almost depleting the vast majority of…

Feeling Defeated!!!

I am finally going to reach out for some advice. This is a very sensitive and personal subject and one that is very hard for me to discuss, it goes. I have some background that will follow me from here on out that I am not proud of in any way, but it is part of who I am because of the poor choices I made, right in the middle of my life when I should have been surpassing my co-workers. I am a driven and very motivated, intelligent…

So I decided after a short break to return to my roots in the food industry. I had my first interview with a company I was most successful with. It was more like talking to an old friend you haven't seen since you were little kids. The interviewer only asked 3 questions. 1 Tell me about yourself. 2 What is your availability and 3. What are your professional goals. The interview process in most restaurants is about 15 min for a long one. This one…

That sounds so promising Eric Gonzalez !! Those are the best types of interviews where things flow well and it feels more like a…
