I had an interview 2 day ago for a position that I really like and want, in which I forgot to ask, when will the company be making their decision. My question: is it ok/proper to contact my interviewer (head of HR) and ask that question? And if yes, then was is the better method of contacting, email or telephone call. Thanks in advance.
Your Manager is a CONTROL person. I had one that NEVER said anything to me except NEGATIVE comments, even when he was wrong. It's sad when a company does see this, even H.R. was blind, because they always agreed???????
I received a call from the hiring manager congratulating me on getting hired and welcoming me to the team. I was a bit shocked because I had interviewed for this job back in early Jan but never heard anything back. She got into talking about the start date, orientation, and training then said she was excited to finally have another University of Florida alum on the team. The problem is I never went to the University of Florida , I went to FSU. She was silent for awhile then asked me for my last name which I told her then things got real awkward. She put me on hold for about 15 minutes then came back on apologizing for the confusion because the job had been offered to another Arleen, not me (I’m actually Arlen). HR, had given her the wrong applicant information. I asked if she had seen my application information and she responded with “someone in human resources will be contacting you”. I hung up with some expectation of hearing back from them out of sympathy or compassion for the confusion but I couldn’t help feeling extremely disappointment after having my hopes built up and then shattered in an instance. Is there anything I can do to turn their mistake into an job opportunity at this point?
What makes a good recruiter? A good recruiter is one who truly cares about both the candidate and the client. It has to be a good fit on both sides to be a win for the company and a win for the new hire. Is this really the right opportunity that will give the candidate long term career growth? Is this the right candidate to add value and grow with the company? Being transparent with both the client and the candidate makes for a good trusted recruiter.
My last job I was the nursing department scheduler which entailed assisting in hiring employees, providing reference checks, and parts of the orientation. As the central supply person for the building I was to take inventory weekly, stock units multiple times, order supplies and put them away. I also kept track of employee time cards making sure they punched in and out, sick time, vacation time PTO. Also, i took on reception duties such as answering phones, taking messages, greeting anyone who came through the door. I did a bit of everything as well as , basic office duties such as faxing, scanning, copying among other duties as they came up. I love staying busy and love a challenge. I'm a team player but also can work alone when needed. I'm a great employee and take pride in my work.
DMV made a mistake and got me fired from a driving / traveling job. Anyone know if there could be a lawsuit there?
My employer told me a ticket was making the company insurance drop me, so I accepted it as I did get a ticket, but later check my driving record to see it was suspended about 21 days later. Called DMV and they fixed it that day, also sent an e-mail to my previous employer letting them know the situation. Sadly the HR person will not talk to me at all, nor respond to my e-mails. SMH.
If it happens again i would go to human resources department
