Since when did
benefits become a word that potential employers hate to hear, and make negative assumptions about? I have interviewed with potential employers who clearly stated in their job descriptions that they do not provide
benefits, and have been asked if I am
okay with that, and I say
yes, I have secured my own benefits (otherwise I wouldn't have applied for the job). Most assume (without asking), that people who aren't working and have
milking the system, and they often get very defensive. Has anyone else had this very strange experience?
