Getting this off my chest!! Stressing!!

I just need to get this off my chest!! I have a felony and a misdemeanor on my record. They are 9 years old, DUI and Drug Possession ( pain killers).
I just got a offer on a good job, I told them about my background before they offered me the job. I always tell future employers about my background at the interview. I would rather tell them face to face so I can explain. Then if they aren't gonna hire me I will already know.
I don't have to play…

Im glad you were honest up front and applaud you for it. Your past is behind you and focus on fixing that typo. Perhaps its a…

How satisfied are you with your job?

Some people wake up and dread their way to work..thinking about how much they are unsatisfied with their job and all the reasons why they do what they do. While others wake up everyday wishing they have a job to go thru. Kept trying but keep failing. Why is it the ones that want work can’t work? And the ones that work hated work??

I got the job......but...

Got offered a position! They just sent me a bunch of forms. One of which is a questionnaire about my medical history. I was just hospitalized for cardiac issues but am on the mends now. I also have to say yes to diabetes. Will this cause me this offer? Please help. I am freaking out!


It's hard to say it could go either way. I wouldn't get stressed over it God will make a way out of no way. If you are for some…

Better job offer,more money.... Or stay where i am?

I recently started a new job in my field which is cooking. Well a few week's ago a friend asked if I'd come in and help her out on my day's off because they needed another cook. I worked 1 day and management approaches me & offers me $4.00 more an hour to quit my job. I though about it & had decided that I was going to take it,I mean who could pass up an extra 4.00 an hour? So I gave my notice and explained why I was leaving hoping that they'd…


Absolutely. I was an Insurance Agent at New York Life. One of the things that they stressed is....follow The Money.
I am on my 6th…

What’s really going on?

Why can’t I find a job? What’s happening? I’ve had at least 4 interviews with one company and 3 with another, but no job offer. Why? I was so close the manager went of the job schedule, I was sure this was it? Then, nothing ... just nothing! I can’t take it anymore!

I dont get it. I got rejected again. They loved my passion but no offer. What am I doing wrong?
I am acclaimed in my field. Just turned 50. 2 degrees. Working on my Masters. All my roles were progressively upward. Am I being blackballed? I remain prayerful.

Don't give up hope,Mel. Check in with your campus career coordinator to see if they can help you get some leads. Your still in…

Hello my fellow Jobcasers

I saw a post about an offer being retracted. I did some research and I saw that link. I decided to post it because that can happen to any of us. Information helps with Prevention.

Thanks for looking out for the community! This is something that can happen from time to time, and it can catch people off guard…

Laila Nashat yes, it certainly can; unfair but true.

What would you do if a job offer came in much lower than the salary originally listed?

A - Accept the Job Offer anyway!
B - Accept the Job Offer ONLY if you can re-negotiate up to the original salary.
C - Accept the Job Offer because you’re confident to get promotion within a year.
D - Decline the Job Offer!

I got denied permanent

I work temp at my job for 9 months got offered permanent and went through the background and drug screen. I got the results and the welcome letter stating my results were favorable. Two days later they called me in and fired me, stating I failed my drug screen. Yet I have the results... everything was negative. When I asked why they resulted negative and sent me my new hire paperwork they said .because they were hoping it was negative! I have…

Some things on your UDS are supposed to positive; all negative could indicate a false test meaning synthetic/fake urine was used.

Don’t know what to do!

So I have two jobs that I’ve been going into for interviews for the past couple weeks bc I’ve been out of a job for a while and these two places both seem interested in me, but what do I do if they both want to hire me at the same time. After all the time do I just let one of them down? What if the better paying one calls after to offer me a job? Is it ok to accept a job and then quit right after bc of the time crunch?

I don’t think that it’s a problem anymore. I had an interview with the boss and when she found out I was a Christian her face…
