I made a mistake!

I mistakenly thought I would find better opportunities here in Orlando. Was I wrong! When I do get an interview, it sometimes includes a sharp jab from where I moved from. In one interview, the hiring manager never looked away from his phone and computer. Other jobs are proud to tell me they offer $8 per hour with no benefits. I was told from another company that they hate people from the north. Wow! Do not move to Orlando and expect to find a…

Don't fall for short term disability

I had a small stroke at work. I worked 50 hours in 4 days and sometimes I had to switch from day shift to night shift frequently. Due to the odd hours I noticed my health was declining and not being able to take a regular day off to get checked properly, the doctor was thinking it was pressure when actuality it was my cholesterol which ended up collecting in my artery and caused my stroke on the job. I went on short term disability in Missouri…

I need help, please.

Like many others, I can't find a job. The bills are piling up, my husband has dementia and Parkinson's and I'm his sole caretaker. I can't collect unemployment because they consider me a transient worker ( I hopped from one assignment to another). So what's the next step? Do I qualify for State benefits? Where do I find info on that? Who do I ask? I've been sending resumes, filling out job applications,etc. I'm at a loss and I feel like crying…

Life is great!

After 20+years doing CNA work. It was time to change my career. I am happy now. I was not treated very good at my last job. So I found a new one less money but I a treated better with awesome benefits. Just have to start fresh. Give it a chance to make changes to your life I did.

So happy for you. Living and doing what you love is sometimes better than money. Enjoy....
