pay rate

I work at a Home Depot in CA. I am now into my 8th yr as a fulltime specialist. I've acquired 19 homer badges, 2 P.K. certifications and actually love my job. My concern is with the yearly minimum wage pay increases in the State of CA. I am now earning slightly over minimum wage. It seems so unfair to me. New hires are earning just about the same as I. Help..I am so disappointed. Why can't The Home Depot recognize experienced, loyal…

You've answered your own question. You've been working there for 8 years! Until they cannot find people like you, they will…

Two truckers share their stories

Meet Nailah and Martin!

Two different people who truly love what they do, which is driving a truck.

Sometimes in life, you need to think outside of the box.

When a friend suggested that Nailah attend truck driving school she stood in front of her in high heels and a dress and thought NO way was this for her. Today she happily says, “I am in a place where I don’t have to want for anything. I am happy. I don’t have bill collectors calling me…

Yes..this is true...but you can not share your good things to haters! It can be a family member...

Finishing up school

I am finishing up high school but working at Home Depot part-time. It's helping me save up for college which is nice. Not sure I will have enough for yet but my manager is cool and let's me pick up extra shifts on Saturday if someone calls out. Hoping I won't need too many more scholarships or finacial aid to help me out. Trying not to end up in debt.

Wish you luck but at least you have got a good job and a plan.

BUSY weekend!

I had a busy weekend! There was a HUGE wedding in town and I guess there was quite literally NO place to park your car at the place they had the wedding so the guests had to get rides to and from the hotel to the wedding. I have driven for Lyft for a while and never seen such a busy time. Luckily all the guests were pretty awesome.

Wow they had no room for parking. What a bad venue. I remember the place my daughter got married had lots of places to park. Well…

Job Offers - When to Accept

Hello, Just curious when should I just take something that is still of decent salary but a bit far from what I wanted as a base. I hate not working, its only been 2 months and I have been on interviews, but I have declined moving forward in interviews due to salary. I hate to settle for a job just to get a paycheck and have a job, but wondering should I? I am fine economically for a few more months, but I would rather not spend savings to keep…

Good question. There is a succinct difference between a job and a career. A job is something you occupy and work as hard as if…

Am i asking for too much?

My resume gets attention and I get notifications of it being looked at two and three times. I may have put too high of an amount for my expected salary. I put a figure that is based on my experience and years servicing in my field. I've had one interview, but it wasn't a good fit. Should I lower my standards to get in somewhere and try to build or stick to my guns because I know what I am worth?

Take that figure and cut 30% --U have to start at the near bottom every time U swap jobs!

Curious

I just have a question about minimum wage. I havent worked since our new minimum wage was set, but I'm wondering if employers are allowed to pay under minimum wage, if you're not receiving any tips or compensation? The thing that confuses me is there's a federal, state & city/ county minimum wage & I've noticed that even though our minimum wage is $12 an hour, some stores only pay between $8.50- $11 an hour, even retailers like Family Dollar. Is…

Goshen is not a well organised company that has low salary scale but could be a stepping stone pending on one's level.
