I interviewed for a job 3 weeks ago...they hired me a week ago but they still can't give me a start date. Meanwhile Im stuck in limbo with no income. Would it be ethical fpr me to tell them Im not waiting any longer and they can go string someone else along?

I applied for a job and Im not sure I want it. I'm waiting for a better offer that allows me to still take care of my parents. The job i applied for just called and Im still not sure. Should I take it for now? When and if I get the other job I applied for how do I then gracefully quit this job?

So I just took a leap of faith and moved from a small town to large city. The move was well needed. Anyways I applied to many places before I came up in hopes to have a job ready for me when I came. I had 3 interviews lined up for my first week, and all on the same day. I went to the 1st one and the interview seemed to went well. However as I watch the staff I would be working with no one had a smile and all look real unhappy. I then go to my... see more

I received and accepted a position with a really good company, job A. I am supposed to start in a few days.
After accepting this position, I was contacted by a company I had previously applied to, job B. I did a phone interview, they immediately had me come in for an in-person interview, went great. I received a follow-up call making sure I was still interested and letting me know they were. I should find out by Wednesday if they will make me an... see more

Hey guys,

So, I was just offered a position with an organization who offered a pretty decent salary. I did not start yet as the first orientation is next week. I should be excited and anticipating starting right?

Well, this is the paradox.
As I was unemployed for about 3 months applying to almost any everything, every day, for like 90 days Lol, those seeds must have started to sprout. I just was contacted for another position for a company... see more

Good advice Michael. My sentiment exactly.

I have worked for this fastener company for last 2 years. I did work hard and worked 3 peoples jobs. I took care of my own accounts, 2 OEM accounts, I worked as an office manager and also my VP’s secretary. With no rewards coming, I was being used just to do these manual jobs and I was so done with it. People started to look down on me and finally I got a new job offer in banking as a Market Segment Specialist, put 2 weeks. Current employer wants... see more

Simply looking for opinions; last year I was let go from a position of 12 years where I worked my fingers to the bones, put in a lot of hours, was promoted twice and formed countless relationships, for all of it to end because of office politics and what I assume to be financial reasons. I promised myself I would never again subject myself to that kind of abuse nor kill myself for any job.

With that said, I have one opportunity starting... see more

So I've got a decent job. No benefits or anything and he hired me in the spot. Well, when he asked how much I want I froze and blurted out $10/hr. (Ridiculous on my part) well I found out the position was paying 14/hr. And now I'm kicking myself. .. another employee told me to just tell them I had another job offer but I really want to stay , and can they give me 14 , I dont know what to do or how to go about doing it, I've only been there a... see more

I have two companies that maybe considering on hiring me, both are great opportunities one is a daycare,boarding, dog training facility the other is a luxury pet resort. What I do if I'm offered a job with one after a one on one interview without giving the other more consideration.

Hear both ideas from both companies for employment opportunities and then decide whether or not to take the job you... see more
