Some said that the most difficult about a job search was the interview..Perhaps, but i would tell the job-seeker....do your homework about that company...and above all....make a good impression.....you will never have another opportunity to make a first impression.Dress to impress....professional, neat, well-groomed....avoid flashy jewelry....eye contact....more but these tips are basic.

I just read an article about felons not getting opportunities. I agree, however, I disagree. How, because I’m a convicted Felon but consider myself a success story for all those who did time. Opportunities only present themselves if you present yourself as a changed individual. During my time, I saw many people wasting there time and spending there family money gambling, instead of working on themselves. Sure, you take educational classes but who takes mental health classes. There is where you began to work on self and your purpose. I took a lot of mental health classes because I wanted different. Along, with mental health, I enrolled in Ashworth College an received my associate degree in business management because I was a convicted felon and I knew I needed to balance the scales. See, as I mentioned earlier it’s all about presentation, then effort. After my released I searched everyday for 35 days and finally got the call from McDonalds. Opportunity, it presented itself and I seized the moment and never looked back. 10 years later I was running one of the busiest Jack in the box in San Diego. I left McDonald’s for Jack in the box after 5 years for growth and opportunity. Jack in the Box gave me an opportunity to lead, every store I managed I diversified, gave opportunities, and made future leaders through mentoring my team. I understood, most people just wants an opportunity, if we look outside there clothes, past circumstances, or cultural differences we can build wonderful stores and I was able to prove that during my 6 year tenure with that company. After 6 grueling years with the company, I am no longer with them unfortunately. That doesn’t minimize my success after doing 10 years. I beat the odds

Target to keep stores closed on Thanksgiving for good -- should all companies do this?

Target is taking a big step this year by permanently closing their stories on Turkey Day.

Should more companies do this for the benefit of their employees? #worklifebalance #WhatDoYOUthink?

I love that Target does that. But every business cannot close - like hospitals, pharmacies, gas stations and so on, because people need to be able to access their goods/services.

In the retail environment it makes no sense to open on certain holidays when historical sales don't justify employee expense.

Shouldn't lunch break count as hours worked?

I work 8-5, five days a week with an hour lunch, but I'm technically paid 40 hours. I feel like that one hour really adds up after a while, like 5 hours a week, around 20 hours a month that I’m not getting paid despite being in/around the office.

this has been on my mind lately

Perhaps you can get a 1/2 hour lunch and get paid for a extra 1/2 hour or go home at 4:30 Doesn’t hurt to ask

If you can't locate a business on Google or the Chamber of Commerce, be careful. There are businesses that pays "under the table" and are hard to locate, but just be careful.
