    I am schedule to have an pre-employment physical and drug test tomorrow, but I'm coming down with a cold and I afraid that it might get worse tomorrow since I can't take any medication as I'm afraid that this may lead to any false positive on my result. I really want this job so I don't really want to leave a bad impression with the employer. If my symptom get worse and I have to reschedule it, would that reflect negatively on me? I don't want my employer thinking that I am faking for any reason.

  • Why is there no grace period?

    Best answer: Of course it's legal. They are paying you to be on the job and if you want the job you get there when they tell you to. Grow up.

  • Do you think it's wrong to say this?

    During a conversation we were talking about Africans and a coworker said "I don't like dealing with Africans because they're poor and I don't like how they speak." This isn't the first time either. My other co-worker wants to make a complaint and wants to involve me. What should I do?

I’ve been looking for jobs on indeed.com, but the listings don’t indicate out front whether or not an application requires your SSN, so I’ve filled out quite a few, only to end up having to hit cancel and wasting my time. I’ve found one job I would really like to apply for, but it requires a SSN. Is there any way I can bypass this on the online application?

  • Why do people at work resent me because I don’t care about my job?

    Best answer: Well, when you show up late or call off, they have to pick up the slack.

    Additionally, something experienced first hand...they resent you. They know that you will quit when you graduate and get a better job than they might ever have in their lives...which they resent.

    Just deal with it...

So our manager fired her while we were on lunch which I think was petty. I feel like we are grown. So what if she cussed and it’s not like she was lying. A lot of people are lazy and she’s been telling our supervisor about it and he has done nothing. I just miss her. I still see her sometimes but it’s not the same. She was funny and a good worker. there are a lot of other workers that cuss loudly and it’s not like she did it in front of customers and she even apologized for it but she still fired her and a lot of us don’t like that. Do you think she deserve to get fired? any way she can come back maybe?

  • Is it fair that Google fired me simply because I attended Donald Trump's inauguration?

    I told them that they had employees who still work there that attended Barack Obama's inauguration and yet they still have their job. So why did I lose mine just for being a supporter of Trump and attending his inauguration? Is this fair? Can I sue?

    She's hated me since day 1. Fabricates mistakes or over exaggerates e.g she reported me for doing an assignment wrong, but I have documentation that I was not even assigned for that assignment. Highlights minor mistakes such as missing a full stop on a letter and will email me and co-workers humiliating me. "YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE MISSED A FULL STOP." Yes, she wrote in CAPS. She talks about me behind my back. Told a colleague that I'm not good enough. She favors those of her race and calls them efficient even though they spend time on phones and the internet. My file is full of false write-ups. My boss turns a deaf ear. I'm not a quitter. What should I do?

    I've worked at my job for almost five years now and was promoted to manager three years ago. I've gotten one raise the entire time I've been there because the boss rarely does reviews because she says she "doesn't have time". I just found out that all new hires are starting in making the same amount as me. Me, supposedly a manager, and I'm making the same as people who aren't even responsible for a quarter of what I do each day. My boss had said she has no problem giving me an extra dollar. But I feel like that doesn't seem like enough for all that I have to do. Should I just take the extra dollar and tell her my list of responsibilities needs to decrease or ask for more money so make up for all that I have to do?
