After more than a year a infuriating and sometimes heartbreaking job search as I struggled to complete grad school while working fulltime, I finally scored an interview with a Fortune 100 company. I prepared. I was excited. I got an offer: 75K base, 12.5K signing bonus, and 14K relocation package. I have to decline.
The state income tax and the cost of living compared to where I live now making 62K would actually result in a decline in my quality of life. I'm so depressed. I really wanted to have a career at this company. It's a fantastic company, but with student loan repayment approaching I would be a working poor.
I have been at my current job since 2010! I started at $7.50 per hour, now up to $10.35! Since our company was merged with another company it has gone down hill! First they cut my hours and took away my health benefits! I had to go on medicaid! Now they have stopped giving breaks and lunches even though I work 8-9 hour shifts! I am 62 and being on my feet for that long without anything to drink is torture!!! I went to HR to complain, I was brought into managers office and basically reprimanded for calling, and as retaliation I was taken off my regular job at customer servce, which I love and waited 4 years to work up to! When I confronted my manager about this retaliation, she just said " Well I was very mad" I am collecting my social security, lost my medicaid, and need this job to survive!!!
I am in need of a job in bennettsville as long as its local and the pay does not matter at the moment.
Fast food jobs are okay, but I am too old to be working for $7-8 an hour flipping burgers. Those companies are to quick to hire. I apply for a Court House job position, was told they have hired someone for that position already. 3 weeks later come to fine out they hired someone who does not have the qualification for the job. I maybe wrong but you don't always get what you in life. :)
It's been a long past 7 years, my husband is retired and has Copd, we have 3 daughters. Have been working 2 jobs for the longest with no avail trying to manage the bills, the girls needs. But I was just offered a job with an amazing company. Is the best Christmas present I could have asked for. The way for me to earn enough on one income to provide for my girls. Am so happy, only prayed for the opportunity to succeed and I would bust my tail through my efforts to do that. Finally, finally have that! Am ever so thankful. Small gains, and struggling for so long has finally put me in a position to succeed. Merry Christmas everyone!
You've got to be kidding me. Just found out that the new overtime pay law just got blocked by a federal judge. So employers can keep taking advantage of us and make us work long hours without paying us properly? What the hell??
Have been seeking employment in this Midwest area since I moved here no one will hire me based on previous salary I made on east coast >>>>>Help!!!!
At least that’s what current studies are showing. Sexism of the brash and vulgar kind (cough TRUMP cough) isn’t nearly as common today as the subtle little ways we put each other in boxes and hold each other back. This article is super interesting. A research team sent science faculty at some big universities applications for scientist positions they had open. The resumes were EXACTLY THE SAME, except for a male or female name. BUT THE RESUME WITH THE MALE NAME was always ranked higher and even given HIGHER PAY.
I have been out of work since March but I was goofing around on the computer and decided to figure out how much I should of been making with my expierence of an assistant manager for almost 5 years and when i seen the statistics for my area for an assistant manager at a gas station with my expertise I was floored!!! I was getting under paid like $12,000 a year. I dispise big greedy companies.
Hi everyone, Is there anyone offering a part-time job willing to pay at least $10/hr. I have experience in customer service and love working with little children and/or pets. Being hardworking and enjoyable to be around are my goals. Possible schedule is available upon request. Thanks everyone! Vega
