I’ve recently gotten a job in an office setting, and I’m worried that I don’t have the clothes to look professional. I know WHAT to wear (no leggings!). But in order to GET professional clothes I NEED money - so how can I dress to impress before getting my first paycheck (which might be about three weeks away…) Help! I’m not sure what to do, especially about shoes since they can be more expensive if you want them to look good… any tips on how to bend the dress code in an office setting?? What’s the minimum requirement for looking professional?
If you look for a long lasting business relationship with your Employer, Confidentiality & Integrity are highly essecials for the life of your career or business relationship. Even at the floor level, the two carasteristics go hand by hand and dealing with sensitive information of any subject, processes procedures including the safety of documents and the entire workforces is critical and must be practice in all you do.

I assure you, that your comments will travel the entire facility to key individuals that will hunt you up to your termination of employment.

In 2017 there are a much larger population of jobseekers with tattoos. I recently interviewed at two types of jobs. One for health related and one for a cleaning job. I got various advice. Some people said cover them for the healthcare and no big deal on cleaning. What do you think about tattoos for interviews? I got the cleaning job that I wanted with them covered for the interview by the way.
I'm about to start my first job in data entry but I have NO IDEA how I'm supposed to dress. I think they mentioned to me that it's a pretty casual office, but what does that mean? Does it mean I wear jeans, or do I need to dress up?? I'm just so confused right now.
After working for Clearwater paper for over 10 years two days before Christmas I was fired for not having my shirt button up they call me at home and had me come in and the day before and I asked hr should I bring my truck and get my tools and she said no I was on paid suspension then she called me to come in on the 22nd for a meeting it takes me an hour to drive there after the meeting as I was almost home I got another call from her saying I was terminated and when I asked about my personal belongings they told me they were going to cut my personal lock off my personal locker and ship me my things without my permission I say bullshit, in my 20years of being an electrician never have I been treated like this by an employer
I'm getting ready to start my first job and had asked the manager about the dress code. He said it's pretty casual and can wear jeans. My first day is next week, and although I would love to go to work in jeans, I want to make sure I make a really good impression. Should I dress up just a little better so I start off on a good foot here? #Advice #Determined
At first glance of the job posting on indeed, it sounded perfect. Of course, not wanting to miss out, I hit "apply with your indeed resume" before really researching the company.... After I did research, I was not happy. It is ran by two less than professional ladies. Seriously, who uses drunken selfies on their website... which was very vague about what they actually do. Two big red flags! Then I hop onto their social media. Oh dear. It's ran by robots. Horrible. You're in marketing for crying out loud! Robots were answering questions with phrases like "That is great! " "Oh, that sounds yummy"... They also answered their bad reviews the same way. After all that and additional digging that left me less than thrilled, I received a voice mail, email and a text from their recruiter. No biggie, right. Well, 10 days, 12 texts, 5 emails later I'm pretty upset I'm being spam- botted by what seemed to be a great job posting. Is this mass text spam-botting the new thing?
So I work in the hospitality industry and have quite a lot of experience in field. I'm not sure on how to think with the recent interview I was just given , the phone conversation was a complete "you got it" vibe and he also set up a free night at the hotel to do a one on one interview at the location. When I made the trip up there (which was a three hour drive) I checked in and then was handed off to someone I was told about for right around a15 minute interview . I was asked three questions and then told that I was completely perfect for the position. Then was set free for the rest of the day to wonder around. The next day I had a 3 hr tour with the guy that I was originally suppose to have the interview with , so it took all day , after he pretty much told me he stole from the company and showed he openly starts gossip about his employees . At the end of this I got my 30 min interview with him and other than feeling , in my head not aloud, that he was completely unprofessional as the head of the department I was applying for he asked me if I was still interested , I said yes then gave me a "we will let you know" I've been a manger for this department before and i do not understand how he is where he is . It makes me think that if you are experienced and worked hard for it...it can basically be ignored of someone who is no where near that level and has the possibility to be your potential boss . Anyway he called me right when i was heading back to another long trip in the opposite way and gave me a last confusing thought to add to my already confused mind on what I just went through. He told me to have a good weekend and that my references were great . .
Flu season is here. A few of my coworkers have come into work when they should have been home. The office sounds like a ER waiting area! I find it rude that they are passing the flu on to the rest of the office. Don't know if I should just not say anything or speak up?
