Clueless Recruiter Rejects Technical Writer With 8 Years of Experience For Being "Too Inexperienced"

Clueless Recruiter Rejects Technical Writer With 8 Years of Experience For Being 'Too Inexperienced'

Applying for jobs is tough; every entry-level position wants 3-5 years of experience, which makes the distinction of “entry-level” an oxymoron. Most career coaches will tell you to apply for jobs you're inexperienced in anyways because, usually, the people writing the job ads set the bar higher than they need to draw in more qualified applicants. Luckily, as time progresses in your career, you become overly qualified for those measly entry-level positions and begin to move up in the world. No l…

Reddit story about a rude recruiter trying to schedule job interview during Christmastime

Rude Recruiter Tries To Schedule Job Interview During Christmastime

If there is one thing workers must be, it's protective of their time. If you're not, people will surely take advantage of it. Unfortunately, everybody is on different pages regarding what is normal to ask of someone. Is it normal for somebody to arrive to work an hour early and leave an hour late? Is it normal to only work during allotted hours and make no exceptions? What about being available at all times? Nobody knows! It's a weird game of 3D Chess that none of us are winning. This time of t…

Reddit thread about a Dastardly Boss Banning Cashiers From Drinking Water On The Job

Dastardly Boss Bans Cashiers From Drinking Water On The Job

I never felt less like a human being than when I worked a customer service job . Something about always having to be productive, getting harassed by customers, and not being allowed to sit and catch a break really tears you down. Your needs are not being prioritized at all, and as a result, you're physically and mentally exhausted by the end of your shift. In situations like these, a manager can make or break your experience. At my old job, I was lucky enough to have managers that would stick u…

A Reddit thread about the worst holiday Christmas gifts workers had ever been given

Workers Discuss The Worst Christmas Presents Their Company Ever Gave Them

From the time we were little, we were taught to be grateful for whatever gifts we were given during the holidays. Parents coach their children to say thank you no matter what present they get because doing anything else would be most unkind. However, as you grow up, you realize that some gifts are actually an insult. The mean girl in middle school didn't give you a Lady Speed Stick out of the kindness of her heart. Likewise, sometimes companies give gifts that are far more insulting than they a…

Reddit thread about a crazy toxic evil boss manager fires employee after going through her purse and finding a job application

Toxic Boss Looks Through Employees Purse, Fires Her After Finding Job Application

So many bosses want excessive access to their employees in manners that cross some boundaries. On the first day of my first restaurant job, I asked one of the assistant managers if I could leave at 9 PM since, on the schedule, my shift ended at 9 PM. He laughed at me, said, “it's good you didn't ask that when the manager was around,” and we continued working. At the time, I felt like such an idiot because I had never had a job before, so I assumed all jobs were like that. Now I just realize thi…

Woman quits job because the vibes are off, inspires Twitter debate and differences of opinion

Woman Quits Job Because the 'Vibes Are Off,' Inspires Debate On the Etiquette of Quitting

I have only quit a job once in my life, and technically I was still training. I was thrown into the fire at a West Village seafood restaurant, which has since closed, and left to burn. At the time, the only bartending experience I had was pouring wine into the glasses of elderly customers. They decided to train be by having me be the sole bartender on a Friday night service. Needless to say, it didn't go well. I walked out. Despite my experience, it's pretty rare to hear about someone up and qu…

Treasurer Withholds Employees Check From October, Says He'll Get it in December

There's nothing worse than waiting to get paid by a shady corporation . When I worked at a restaurant during my senior year of high school, my boss told me that the clock-in system was broken. He told me not to worry and that he would ensure I got the time I worked during those shifts accounted for. I did as I was told and didn't clock in for about 5 or 6 shifts during the Christmas season. Little did I know that I would never see any of that money from those shifts. I don't know if my boss for…

Respectable Times People Quit Toxic Jobs on the Spot

Jobs can be a lot like relationships. When a person finds the right one, it helps them grow, makes them feel supported, and generally makes life better. But when you find yourself in a toxic workplace, it can do exactly the opposite - make a person feel stressed, anxious, depressed. Basically miserable. But just like in a relationship, it's easy to stay in a toxic situation because it's comfortable. There's something easy about suffering in a way that's familiar. While some people lean into the…

People Brainstorm Revenge Tactics For Company Forcing People Who Are a Minute Late Sing a Song

Humiliation is never chill. That is unless it's your kink, and we won't judge you for that. Humiliation in the workplace, however, is never okay. Redditor u/estranged_writer511 shared a despicable post with the r/antiwork community, explaining that their new job has a policy that requires people who are even a single minute late to sing a song for everyone as punishment.

Manager Blasted For Cold Response to Employee's Request to See Dying Sister

Video of woman telling story about quitting job after boss thinks she was lying about sister dying.
Via @hillary.zinks
It's true that the service industry is suffering right now. Nearly every restaurant, cafe, and bar is hiring. While some people have said that it's a result of laziness on the part of workers, we're more inclined to believe that people are starting to get sick of suffering bullshit. TikToker @hillary.zinks is one example of a service worker who wasn't about to allow her employers to treat her like crap. After her sister suffered sudden cardiac arrest that resulted in brain death, Hillary explai…
TWitter thread about why you should talk salary with your peers, colleagues, friends, family, salary negotiation, bad jobs

Wise Thread Explains Why We Need to Be Talking Salary With Our Peers

Talking pay is rarely easy in the workplace. Employers generally discourage salary talk, and looking out for your people can result in accusations of “unionizing." What they're really afraid of is learning what you're worth to them as compared to your colleagues. There are downsides to these conversations - feelings can get hurt, especially when you learn that you make a lot less than a new hire after over a year of helping the company profit. Ultimately, however, knowledge is power, and it's g…
