I needed a per-deim job to help me balance my expenses, found one which I was very excited. They told me at the interview that they only give one week of orientation but never discuss the pay rate, while on orientation they brought in HR to dicuss time, attendance, dress code, blank check for direct deposit and all the good things but never discuss pay rate. Everyone was in disbelief that they discuss everything except the pay, one guy asked about the pay, they never say much only stated
after orientation. I got three days of orientation, and was place the fourth and the fifth day by myself, I handled it pretty well but to my surprise we were not paid and was later told we have to give three days before we got paid. I was upset because I worked by myself for two days, it's far ethic than my full time, I decided I would continue call the person who is responsible for scheduling and to my surprise when I gave her my hours she never get back after three days she got back and decided to give me a schedule that will interfere with my full time, when I spoke to her she hang the phone up in my ears. How can I work for such facility that doesn't show respect. Therefore, I was not paid I try to reach out and she refused to give me a schedule that will work for me so I decided to move on. What you guys think should I get pay or not.

I recently found a jokb posting about elderly care on barefootstudent website where you can either post about a job opening or look for a job. So I found one about this man whom is looking for someone to care for and keep his 75 year old dad company while he's away off shore because he works two jobs one as a miner and the other was not stated. He basically told me he thijnks i m perfect for the job, we exchanged a couple of emails between eachother and he sent me the location of the place I'd have to stop by, which is 10 minutes away from my place. We still have not met but have established a schedule and pay rate and all he needs is more of my information and says he needs to speak with his lawyer about making my payments. He said he wants to provide me with funds for some classical books he wants me to get for my visits with his dad, along with a week advanced paycheck. He claims he will speak with his lawyer about this in the meantime and I should be getting the check and funds in the mail this next week(aroumd mid week) and would like me to start in the following week after that. He just wants me to have the books and everything ready prior to meeting with him and his dad. I just think it's a bit of a scam for trusting me and not meeting me first before sending anything in. Again, he still doesn't have my information but this is what he is asking for:
Home Address or Office Address (where payment should be mailed to.
(Pleases no P.O Box)
Home & Cell Phone Number(Best time to call Day/Night)
I really wish this is a true job opportunity because based on what he's told me, it would definetly work out. I just need to know what kind of steps I should be taking before taking action. Also.. What dangers are there if I gave my address besides him showing up to my house ? If this IS a scam, what can I be facing if I do give my full name and address? Please help!less

Has anyone ever experience this? I recently accepted a full time w2 position with benefits. The pay was ridiculously low but it was better than staying on unemployment. Well, the first week went well, lots of self training videos, quizzes and a final exam - all of which I passed. They were combining a full time customer service position with an admin position (only a $1 increase to do both and really expensive health insurance. 2nd week comes along and I got a wicked chest cold and bladder infection. I was told that I could work from home this Thursday and Friday. Great. Friday morning I get an email asking me to come into work early at 6:30am because they had something exciting they wanted to discuss with me. Because of the time I though OH NO but I was assured that I would be pleased. I had expressed an interest of working from home in the future so I thought great...that must be it. That was is BUT and this is a big BUT they said I can now work from home on an as needed basis - no benefits, no guarantee of work assignments and become a 1099 contractor. How in heavens name is this supposed to please me?!?!?! To top it all off because they wanted to change me to as-needed - they said I would not get paid for Friday even though they specifically told me in writing to work from home on Friday. I talked to Unemployment and I may not be able to receive the unemployment money left in my account (approximately 3 weeks left) because of the fact that in the eyes of unemployment I voluntarily quit which I DID NOT. I feel like I was tricked into becoming as-needed and I don't know what to do next? Sorry for the long explanation? Any suggestions? I was the oldest in the office 59 everyone else was in their early to late 20's. I do wear a hearing aide but I was told that would not be an issue for the work I was doing - basically proofreading and writing proposals etc. Thanksless

So a coworker asked me to do a legal shift switch with her and hers was 2pm-8pm (mine was 7:30am-2:30pm) but I guess somehow I got 8am-2pm ( I'm pretty sure I heard that right from both my manager and coworker ). Anyways I came in at 8am and my manager asked me why I was there. I was confused but I ended up understanding and explaining the situation about what was originally heard for me. He told us that one of needs to leave and come back at 2-8. Of course I had something scheduled at 3:30 so I told him that I can't make it at 2. Can this be a write up? Did I do something wrong?less

CCed to the other that way the manager could either say yes or no. Because sometimes the manager will not agree depending on the work performance of the person. You said that you heard but again no email was sent nor did the manager approach you on your shift to let you know that you and another person was changing prior to.

Home healthcare - Independent contracting

A big stress-producer for me as a home healthcare provider is maintaining a good work-life balance. It takes vigilant attention and discipline to follow-through with my commitments for interests outside of my home healthcare workday world. Personal discipline and scheduling is simple and sometimes it is not always easy to pull off. When I see to it that my life includes equal parts of recreation, family, fun, and down-time I bring a renewed and refreshed me back my work world.
Home healthcare can be all-consuming and personally depleting but that happens for me now only on rare occasions. The consequences include a gloomy outlook overall and a less than inspired interest in everyday activities. On the other hand, the payoff of scheduled self-care and outside interests is rejuvenating. I bring my best self to my work each day when I see to my own wellness.
I have learned the importance of not dropping the ball on myself by blowing off an outside interest or two “just for this week” I say to myself (right!) and the next thing I know a month has gone by and I haven’t had 2 hours to myself. My mind wonders, my sense of humor takes a vacation and I am not a happy camper. I can sort of fake being “fine” for a while but the big loss (for me and those around me) is that I miss being right here right now, fully present.
Not seeing to my own needs is choosing to sacrifice possible opportunities to bring my best and brightest self to whatever is going on even if what’s happening is not any fun! The unexpected happens often and usually with little or no notice. Home healthcare schedule may be over scheduled or under scheduled sometimes—true enough. I want to know that I can depend on myself to carve out whatever I need for my own self-care. The payoff is emotional and physical resilience to deal with the rigors that come with the business of everything that comes with daily living. It’s my responsibility to take care of me.
I enjoy a full life in my daily round these day only to the extent that I maintain as structured a routine as possible (no small task when we’re talking home healthcare-I know) and I look small for small ways to be good to myself.
The personal rewards that come with home healthcare are many and varied. I want to live those miracle moments. Sadly personal exhaustion is the thief that that can rob me of my vitality. Three words sum it up for me regarding a good life outcome during short-term and long-term home healthcare assignments
Discipline, discipline, discipline.

I left del taco because I had an unprofessional shift manager.
She told me to finish up the dishes and go home early whenever I asked for my mandatory break. My first gm yanked my head set off when I told her I had to pee for the second time that day. They would work me for a week and not Work me for the following week so my checks were always minimal
