I’m a 57 year old man with 33 years of supervisory and managerial skills. I’ve ran companies alone, and owned and operated two businesses. My deal was that I liked working with people, and have applied to many companies. Only to be told that they have decided to proceed with other candidates, only to find out that they were much younger than I. I wasn’t asking for 70-100k a year as they were probably were thinking, just a job so that I could get... see more

$500? That can’t be right unless it’s gift cards.

This post can be taken for what it is worth it could be both of frustration, me being naive or simply jaded. I was in the military for almost 5 years granted this is completely different than the civilian world but based on experiences of varying work ethics and morals my standards may be judged based off of my military experience especially since it was my first job ever. During my time in High School there was always an indication that we as... see more

I accepted a position from the US Census Bureau on Dec 6th of 2018. I have completed all my paperwork and everything. Does anyone know how long it takes to get a background check done for a clerk-receptionist position? I know that they had a shutdown but now they are open once again. I was wondering why it takes so long to get employed by the federal government?

I'm a teacher that is what I do Best. On Monday Dec 17th, they terminated my employment saying that I was not a good match for what they were looking for. I've been teaching math and science, English ESL & French FSL for almost 12 years without any complaints!!! I always had students with either ADD H trouble or with the Asperger Syndrome. It was a private school and they wanted near perfect scores for all students. Basically ''cosmetic'' A & B... see more

The reason we are all treated poorly by employers is because we need them more than they need us. How did this happen?

The primary culprit is the minimum wage. Because it has been raised so high, it becomes more difficult to afford a full staff. Business must cut back, and many many more people are under employed or unemployed.

Now we've got to refer to the law of supply and demand. When supply is high and demand is low, prices drop... see more
