Shady Management

This scenario sounds like an afterschool moral & ethics programs but I’m dealing with a situation at work where my boss is cornering me into altering reports to make the store look good on paper to the corporate offices. I’ve heard rumor’s of other stores cheating results on their books but we’ve never had to do that because our sales goals were always met. Shady activity like this not only goes against company policy but against my moral and ethical standards as well. Has anyone ever worked with a shady manager in the past? How did you handle the situation?

Posting for Sales associate, pace, FL

I'm extremely confused by a 24 hour time frame given to me to complete a questionnaire? I am extremely interested in this position and this company. With my extensive background in Telecommunications I would think it could be a win-win situation for myself and Verizon. I was sent a "FINAL NOTICE" email at 10.00pm on October 21, 2016, a Friday evening. I did not read this email until 11:30pm on October 22,2016 nor did I receive any prior emails to the final notice on Friday evening. This seems extremely strange to me and I would like to request a second opportunity to apply for this position. My mobile number is 850-776-0255 and my email address is childsrw@gmail.com

Sincerely,

Richard W Childs

Anyone have any tips for passing pre-employment assessments?

I’m having trouble with the employment assessments and I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong. I need to pass this before I can be considered for an interview.

Assessment question help - When I disagreed with a supervisor, I most often:

  1. Reached a compromise by talking it out.
  2. Combined our ideas to find a solution together.
  3. Kept my opinions to myself.
  4. Presented my side in a way my supervisor would find agreeable.
  5. Did not back down on what I thought was right.

Thank You

Those Frustrating Assesments

Just a quick truth about assessments for those not aware and should really know:

If you don't match certain key parts that their filter is looking for, or respond in certain ways, your application is filtered out and not even looked at by hr.

A lot of companies who have you apply online have those assesments as a way for them to try and filter out applications they don't want to deal with.

For example: I worked as a temp for Sprint. I ran their kiosk on my own for a couple months but with my temp contract running out I had applied to work permanently with Sprint. I didn't pass their assessment and according to the ditrict manager I talked to, no one had been passong their online assessment for months...which explains why in my state none of the kiosks have full time Sprint employees and only third party temps because the assessment is so strict in their filtering no one is passing.

Other companies don't have filters as strict as Sprint's thankfully, and there are still some out there that don't have assessments. Sadly though, it's becoming more and more common for an online assesment.

Be careful with those assesments. And think about your answer the questions. How you answer determines whether HR gets to actually LOOK at your application. Some places that has these online assessments also has a way for you to see the status of your app. So make sure to keep an eye on that.

These assements are there to see aspects of your personality and how it may fit the view of the company, so that filter looks for what the company wants.

Sad sucky truth. So just do what you can with those and do your best not to get frustrated. The long time in getting a response thst I mentioned in a previous post also factors into that.

Should I call, send an email?

A couple of Friday evenings ago I received a call requesting a phone interview. Immediately after the phone interview I was asked to come in for an interview the following Monday. It wasn't possible for me to make it on such short notice, but I did propose that I could come in on Tuesday. I made the interview on Tuesday and immediately afterwards was asked to return for a 2nd interview on Thursday of the same week. Being that I am unemployed with no income, making a second interview (50+ miles round trip) was a stretch, I agreed to it. In the meantime I was told that I would be emailed a "test" and that I could complete it online and either submit it there online or bring it to me at the second interview.

When I received the test it wasn't a test at all. It was an application and reference request. I filled out both promptly and returned them electronically. When I arrived for the second interview, it turns out that it was the "test" that I was supposed to be sent on Tuesday. It was simple enough but I only had 20 minutes to complete it and another document. I was told that the second document wasn't as important and that I would be emailed it to complete at home. That's it. Nothing else. I was told that my references would be checked, she verified that I was okay with the job location and possibly taking on more duties, and then I was told that a decision would be made this week.

I never received the second part of the "test" to complete. At this point I am left wondering what just happened? Would you call, email, or just wait until the time has elapse that was given to you concerning a decision.
