  • Old employer keeps asking me to come back?

    Okay, I'm not really sure what to do anymore. I quit my job last 2016 because I absolutely couldn't stand my boss. I used to have frequent panic attacks and just cry my eyes out in the bathroom.

    Okay, I'm not really sure what to do anymore. I quit my job last 2016 because I absolutely couldn't stand my boss. I used to have frequent panic attacks and just cry my eyes out in the bathroom. That's how much I hated it. Well, a few weeks ago, the guy who replaced me quit. They've been asking me to come back ever since. The HR and my boss have contacted me a few times and I keep telling them I couldn't at the moment (I couldn't really think of an excuse). My boss just contacted me again and she said that she would like to set up a meeting with me and the president to see if I would maybe reconsider coming back. I just don't get it. I've told them no repeatedly and I just don't know what to do. It's not like I've been outstanding at my job or anything, so I'm very confused why they want me back to begin with. I don't know what to reply to her because I really don't want to burn any bridges. I think it's time I give them a proper excuse so they would stop bothering me. Problem is, I don't know what to say. I was thinking of telling them I already have another job or I'm thinking of going back to school but I'm actually currently job hunting right now, and I'm afraid a prospective employer might contact them for references. What should I do? Please help me.

  • Can I call my employees doctor?

    I have an employee who has worked for me for less than one year. She broke her ankle 6 weeks ago and said that she is going to be off work for another 2 months due to physiotherapy.

    I have an employee who has worked for me for less than one year. She broke her ankle 6 weeks ago and said that she is going to be off work for another 2 months due to physiotherapy. This employee has been on social media posting videos of her out and about in a boot, walking, caring for her animals etc. She works 1 day per week and is employed in a clerical role, she is the only one who does this job so for now, the job is not being done. I have asked if she could work from home and I would cover all costs related to her doing her job from home. So far she has ignored me but messaged me about her pay etc since then. I believe this employee is planning to stay on sick leave for as long as possible and then leave as she was a pretty poor employee before breaking her ankle (which she done while she was "bed ridden" on a previous sick leave). Can I call her doctor and ask if she is able to carry out her duties at home? I see no reason why she can not do her job from home, it is all clerical and does not involve any one else. Thanks

  • How do I tell a job recruiter that I will be declining a job offer because the interviewer made a homophobic remark?

    I had three job interviews last week. Company A rejected me, Company B gave me a job offer, and Company C wants to give me another interview.

    I had three job interviews last week. Company A rejected me, Company B gave me a job offer, and Company C wants to give me another interview. I already want to accept the offer from Company B without even going through with the other pending interview at Company C. The reason is because the man who interviewed me at Company C made a terrible remark towards the end of the interview. He explained to me how the environment really embraces political incorrectness (which I am okay with, to an extent...) but then he went on to ask me if I have a boyfriend (I am a male). I was completely caught off guard by this question, so I told him no I do not. After he saw that I was surprised by his question, he went on to laugh and say something along the lines of "what?! this is the reality of our society today. me personally, I hate it and don't agree with it though" The ironic part is that I am in fact gay, but I have a masculine appearance so most people don't know at first glance. The interview for me felt great up until that very moment. The recruiter however told me after the interview that he really liked me, and wants to set up a 3rd interview with their CEO. On one hand I want to bring this up to the recruiter, and maybe even to Company C's HR dept. On the other hand I just want to ignore anything from them about moving forward with another interview, accept Company B's offer, and move on with my life. What would you do in this situation?

    I hated my job so i went on interviews on my days off and was offered a position at spot with an amazing opportunity. I went to my current job to pick up my kitchen tools and told the morning sous chef i wont be coming back sorry for not giving any type of notice but the new place wants me to begin ASAP and im not going to give up the offer. He was obviously pissed off and said i need to speak to my chef in person and tell him im not coming back and sign papers. * my chef works the PM shift and i tried calling him but he never picked up* Ive never had to sign papers when i left a job before. Is it necessary? Because i dont want to travel all the back down there again and i dont ever want to step foot in that place again since i hated it. So do i have to do anything? Im mean they cant fire me i already quit.

  • What does it mean when the boss says "I would prefer that you didn't"?

    What do you really do when the boss uses the words "I prefer"? He will say something like "I'm not going to say that you can't take your vacation this week, but I would prefer that you wait until next week". So far this has not been a real problem, but I've been working on... show more
    What do you really do when the boss uses the words "I prefer"? He will say something like "I'm not going to say that you can't take your vacation this week, but I would prefer that you wait until next week". So far this has not been a real problem, but I've been working on starting my own part-time sideline business and the boss from my full time job said "I would prefer that you didn't". The only real restriction on the books that my place has is I can't take a part-time job with a competitor while I'm working this job. Since the sidleline is a DJ/KJ business, it has nothing to do with my full-time job, but my boss is worried about the business interfering with my full-time job. He said I might "think" I have Saturday off and agree to DJ an event but if somebody quits or calls out, I might be required to work at the last minute and I would be expected to cancel my event and come to work, "I'm DJing a dance Saturday" is NOT an excuse. At this point, I need to make some extra money, my full-time job doesn't pay enough. I barely make it paycheck to paycheck like most everyone there. Sometimes the bank account is down to $0 before the next paycheck. There is no savings, no retirement. I had to borrow money from my parents for car repairs just so I could get to work. I really need the money from this but my boss said he would prefer that I don't do it.

  • Isn't it risky to go on maternity leave and have a temporary replacement fill in your spot?

    What happens if the employer likes the replacement's work better and permanently hires him/her and gets rid of you? Now you would be out of a job.

    I am feeling a bit confused and would like a third party opinion. I just graduated with degrees in Journalism and Communication. Over my course I have taken around five internships, all of which I haven't really liked. I feel so ungrateful because the people have been so nice, but I've just found the work to be so boring or I just could not care less. And this isn't boring grunt work either, I actually get to interview people and write stories. I'm working at an online publication part time at the moment and I feel so ungrateful because I know its a good opportunity, I feel like I'm being one of those lazy millennials but sitting in a desk each day from 9-5 feels like I'm missing out on the world. I tell my family that and they just say that once you get out into a full time job that it will change and you will to get used to it and like it. I also feel terrible because I get told I'm good at writing but I don't really like doing it, I see it as more of a chore. I never really write for fun and my family say that it would be a waste for me not to pursue it. No one pressured me into a Journalism/Communication degree, I just always thought that was what I wanted to do. I always thought I wanted to be a magazine editor but now I just don't really care anymore.

I'm being told I made the wrong decision because the pay is the same and I'm close with everyone there but I'm thinking bigger picture by working at a larger company with more growth opportunities.Also, I need a change to get out of my comfort zone and I think this is the perfect chance to do so.
