I just don't know how to approach relationships with coworkers. People seem friendly at work, and we joke around and stuff, but I don't know anything about them outside work. I know this company has a pretty cut-throat promotion policy... are they just being nice to me so they can beat me to a promotion or are we actually friends or what? I don't like mind games. Should I even try to be friends with people at work?

Not friends just friendly associates. Never give to much personal info out either. Just be nice to them and don't... see more

When you’re out there in today’s market trying to find employment you’re oblivious to others looking right along side of you. It can be intense, frustrating and depressing. Especially when you have a family to care for and bills to pay.

I find stepping back, re-evaluating your skill set and making changes to your key words helps. I recently found an old resume from 14 years ago that showcased skills I hadn’t used in some time and I do plan on... see more

I'm a very hard worker, I have always given my all at every company that I have been employed with. I take every job that I have been given and opportunity to be employed with my all, unfortunately, none of those companies kept their word. They would acknowledge the fact at every company I've been employed through that I was the hardest worker they had, but they would never keep their word to me as I did to them. I was promised raises that I... see more

So recently I was told that I'm being looked at as a new manager. Now this all sounds great considering I'm a driver right now making minimum wage which is like $8.50 an hour. Plus tips which on a normal day is around $45-50. Now as a manager I'd be making $12 an hour working a potential 40 hours a week. Right now I have just under 35 and last week I worked 52 hours. My income monthly is around $1600 but I dont want to stay a driver for long... see more

I'm 56 with a Masters degree in Organizational Leadership. I was recently passed over for a supervisor position at my current place of employment of over 2 yrs. I had 4 interviews. 1 with HR; 2 with my manager and 1 with the RVP. The RVP decided I didn't have enough experience and wanted some who was relocatable. In other words, someone younger and single. Smells like ageism and dare I say racism. There is no diversity in our local office in the... see more

Recently the Team Lead was promoted to Ladies Departments Manager. I expressed my interest in being appointed the new Team Lead and both the store manager and ladies departments managers talked to me like I was going to be promoted. I was told I’d have 40 hours each week, a scheduled day off and to... see more
