I was a Fed Govt contractor before the furlough. My boss asked me to sign a Non compete for 2 years - right smack dab in the middle of this shutdown....or not renew my contract. What was I to do??? I havent made a cent not one penny since the shutdown and I have 30 years in my industry....so why kick someone when they are already down...how am I to feed my family, work , pay my bills...so I told her I wasn't going to sign it....I needed to work and pay bills - she even asked for my Fed Govt ID ( you know they are donating food, offering zero interest loans, deferring your bill payments, etc) - BUT YOU MUST SHOW YOUR FED GOVT ID!!!!!!! I am now looking for a jib...interviewing with the competition tomorrow ( the have a commercial non Fed Govt dept) I spoke with the SBA and they said what she is doing is not illegal - only unethical.

Hello Everyone, about a month ago I posted that I had the best interview ever, no matter what way it went. I got word today, they are at a stand still as to what they want to do with the software trainer position. I was told I did very well in the interview. I told them to let me know if something changes or if they are looking for a contract/project position, as I would be open. I never stopped looking for work. I have had great interviews and now again....the wait. I have a skype interview on Monday, it is a 6 month contract position with a Global Medical Device company, for a training coordinator and it wold offer some great experience. Has anyone worked in contract positions and if so, what are the pros and cons you have experienced? Thanks!

I am in a delimma right now. I work for one of the largest Freight Forwarders in the industry, and I have my largest domestic account making a visit to my place of employment, o review our warehouse for possibly 20,000 sq ft of storage space needed. I am sure that I will secure it, however; I am afaid that I will make a mistake in the pricing verbiage, and piss off a really easy going guy, who basically says, "put something in a contract, that I can sign, just don't screw me over. I have been doing this long enough, where I think I can justify what I want to do.

normal warehouse pricing will be by rate per pallet per month or by square foot by month. Since this is a short term warehouse agreement, less then 12 months needed, I was thinking about pallet rate per week versus month. Should I show him the incentive savings that he may earn by doing a weekly billing? I need you supply chain guru's to do my thinking for me in this case...

Hello there, community!

It seems to me like I need your help and will be grateful for any recommendations. Relocating is a stress and job searching even bigger.

I'm moving to the US for a O1 working visa and looking for a job. About me: I am a photographer with 8 years experience, working in directions - portraits, fashion, advertising, jewelery, food, interiors and the last 3 years of weddings (Italy) and models portfolio (Russia and France) I work in Russia, Italy, France, Hungary, Lithuania, Spain, Malaysia and Morocco and write for several travel and lifestyle magazines.

Ideally, part time or contract terms, but I will happily consider the full time. Location - Portland, Oregon. But any state and city works for me, if my presence is not needed daily. Flights and long journeys are not a deal.

Portfolio: www.orlovamaria.com Or write to me if you need more info/works/publications/proofs

If you are looking for a photographer in your team or know the cool companies that have been looking for such a person - please let me know!

*o1 visa does NOT require sponsorship.

I thank everyone who read this!

#housecleaner #nanny i want to leave soon

My contract was about to end here in saudi arabia , working almost 4 years .but the family I'm working for insisted and begging me to stay for more months , I can't stay any longer since my salary didn't raise up . Although they are kind and lovely family that's what I've been thanking for them.after they know that I'm looking for a new family house to work for , they keep on asking me to stay more months ..

After this contract with them , I'm looking forward for a new family that will hire and accept filipino Muslim housecleaner or a nanny.

Hello everyone, I'm looking for assistance please, in attempting to locate a Recruiter in my area, which is near Joliet, IL (60436), that handles Contract positions, not necessarily Contract to Hire. My reasoning, is that although I've been lucky enough to have several interviews, I've yet to find that perfect "match", and quite frankly I'm running out of time, (my unemployment ends September 30th), so at this point, the way I see it is, I have one of two options. The first being to take any job, even if it does not meet and or match my qualifications, or what I'm truly hoping to do, is to work a Contract job, that offers 3-6 months of employment, where I could still continue to interview for my "dream" job, without losing everything I've worked so hard to get. So if anyone out there knows of a Recruiter that specializes in offering Contract job opportunities, near my home in Joliet, IL (60436), please kindly forward me their information. In the meantime, I also wanted to Thank all of the Jobcase members that have been forwarding job opportunites to me, I truly do appreciate your assistance, and support. TY!

Writing a bad contract. I had a friend who's grandfather was dying so I helped her rent a van so her and her family could go say goodbye. In order for them to afford it I waived the additional drivers fee and applied a coupon to her contract. Almost a month later I was let go because they say it was fraud. Even though the company is all about customer service and going the extra mile I was let go. I stand behind my choice as it was an emergency situation and I have done it for several customers before, and never reprimanded for it nor told I was doing the wrong thing. Just shows this company will overlook or ok something until they decide to use it agaisnt you. I begged and pleaded for 3 days trying to save my career with no avail. I was a great asset, helped raise moral, customer service scores, and revenue increase. Unfortunately, standing up for what's right and having a backbone agaisnt management bullies put a target on my back that finally caught up with me.
