Do I deserve another chance?

I was fired from my job of 3 years for falling asleep. I care for my disabled husband after he broke his neck a year ago. Having had a particularly rough night caring for him, I got about 3 hours sleep. The office was very quiet that day and I had completed my work. After being allowed to complete my day, I went home. When I went to work the next morning, I was immediately sent home without pay. It took them 2 weeks to officially fire me. My…

Wow I have almost the exact story! I was a contract employee however. The company i was contracted to work at loved my work ethic…

Get it in Writing.

You got the job offer, you are so excited. But did you really get the job offer?

Companies that are on the up and up will always, not sometimes but always do the following:
Send you a job offer, and what is included in that letter is Critical;. Keep that letter, make copies. Hopefully, you will not need to point anything out that is not being done.

Job offers can vary but they should at a minimum have the following information.

Ready To Work Again, But No Luck!

My last job was officially in 2011. My mother and father needed help with a caregiver. So for 6 years, other than an insurance class here and there. I have a huge gap on my resume. I was hired in 2017 for office work but turned out the pool business and selling new pool renovations wasn't my thing to say the least.

My resume has still managed to get me requests for Assesment tests, which sadly I just past at average scores. There are plenty of…

Working with...not my family

Have anyone had a Boss/Manager who would gladly hire his Son in law...Brother's Son..etc etc. You there working your butt off...knowing that his family get away or do less then you. And in my case...my manager would empower certain employees with a sense of power. He likes...no loves it when they report stuff to him. All this for 13/hr. And there is only like 12 employees at most. This guy my manager hates confrontation but love talking shit…

That seems like a tough situation if someone is constantly negative. I have worked for families before but never had any issues so…

Interview - Wait time

What is the average wait time for one to land a job they desire? I had resigned from my previous role in December 2018 due to my father's illness which was followed by his demise. I had to leave to my home country for 3 months to recuperate and settle a few things for my mother. I was back on March 19 and started looking around mid of the month. Have given few interviews but nothing clicked so far. I was just curious to know how it works for…

Interesting question Veena Venugopal but there is no silver bullet answer to this one. There's simply too many unknown variables…

One time I felt unfairness at the work place was...

When I worked at the same company as my husband (now ex-husband). We had moved to another town because he had gotten promoted to store manager and they transferred me to the same store. Since we were married and he was the boss then we had decided that if I had any questions or needed help with something that I would go to the Assistant Manager and she would take care of it. That wasn’t a problem at all, it worked out great. Move along a few…

Private Transportation/Driver/Courier

It is difficult for a woman to get a business up and running. Well for me it seems impossible. I'm 47, going through a nasty divorce and trying to improve my credit score. My driving record is great. I'm an attentive listener and conversationalist. I believe in my business choice. Networking is a must and I'm not able to get out and do that much. Always thinking about alternatives to loans and grants since I've had no luck with…

TIRED and TORN

I lost my job Feb 20th because my client passed away. I have never been without a job. I live paycheck to paycheck. Every minute I have has been spent job seeking. I turned down one that would have required me to move. I turned down another one because the compute to and from took an hour and a half each way. It wasn't the miles but the highway traffic. I can't see out of my left eye and don't want another accident. So for now I took a gas…

Employed after 1yr wait...

So glad I didn't give up.
Finally, after moving to a new state 2,000miles from the previous one, I got hired in a good fit position. Although I went through an agency, it happened so fast to my surprise & the team I work for is very cohesive.
The journey was very VERY hard while battling homelessness & sadness along with my husband. It was such a culture shock as a result of moving and a challenge, but made it through it all.
Keep hope alive…
