I had a revelation today. I was raised to believe hard work pays off and shamed for any display of not wanting to work. I was force fed narratives that I should have some passion that I would like to do for 40 hours per week…which then became 50…which now sits somewhere between 60-70-100. Listening to executives say “no one wants to work anymore” these last two years was really the straw that broke this camel’s back. Executives never do meaningful work and would NEVER do any of the real work the people below them do. Executives are the ones that do not want to work. Worse, they don’t want to hire at a fair wage because it would eat away at their personal wealth. Never mind that they don’t need this wealth and did not earn it. They were merely in the right place when our government decided to…
Never NEVER say the first number!
I had a phone screen today- it was going pretty well. I had all of the technical skills for the position they were trying to fill and I think that the recruiter liked me. Then we got to the dreaded salary expectations question. I would’ve been happy with 95k, as that would be a significant jump from my current salary.

Do you have a budget already set for this job?” And she said yes! Of course! And came back with $120-130k!! And then SHE sounded nervous and said that was just a starting point for negotiations if they really wanted me. I already got an invitation to the next round of interviews. Moral…

Ain’t this too true!!!
Found out my boss is a f***ing snake
So I work for a large distribution company for local convenience chains. When I signed up to work for them, I was offered a sign on bonus of $15,000, using the following distribution schedule: 20% after 30 days 40% after 120 days 40% after 210 days Now, this isn't a bad deal, but I remember being told that if I didn't stay for 365 days, I would have to pay it all back. I'm due for my second distribution this Friday, but I've been looking for employment elsewhere as this company really isn't good. So, to cover my ass, I decided to look at the papers I signed agreeing to the bonus and distribution schedule. Lol and behold, THERE'S NO CLAUSE THAT SAYS I HAVE TO PAY A CENT BACK! I confront my HR about this, they claim I need to pay it back. I point out that none of…
Seems a little suspicious. Why scrub it all, including the horrible mod replacements that happened after? Isn’t that against this subs ideas?
