    Best answer: Because the end-of-year holiday rush and early-new-year returns activity is done so the workload is hugely reduced and the revenue/margins cannot support the larger employee base.

    By the way, the retailers don't "like" to do anything but make money selling products. Also remember that "Human Resources" is there to protect the company, not the employees. In both cases, this is not "good" or "bad", it just *is* and helps define capitalism.

  • Who else is looking forward to the angry cons when Gen Z ends up not being conservative?

  • Am I allowed to ask an employer if they will pay me for transportation?

    There is a new Costco that opened up and they are hiring. It costs me $4 to get there by bus and $4 back. My city doesn't have many stores that are hiring, most tourist stores and they only hire people who they know. Can I call a store up and ask them if they will pay,

  • My work won't let me have my hand lotion at my cash anymore?!?

    I've worked as a grocery store cashier for 2 and a half years. I bring a little tube of hand lotion with me and set it at my cash because my hands dry and crack really, really, really bad. Honestly, it's gotten so bad that when I try to close my hand my skin starts to crack and spit and bleed. It's very painful. Today I had my lotion at my cash like usual and my boss said no personal items could be at my cash. I said okay, I'll just put it in the drawer at my cash. She said no I can't, and I have to go put it in my locker! The customer in line was even like, "seriously, you can't have lotion?!" When I told my boyfriend he was modified. His father was a health inspector, and he said he doesn't think it's very safe to have the person dealing with food bleeding all over the place. We also have to use hand sanitizer, and that drys my hands out even worse. I'm tempted to talk to human resources about it, because I don't think I should have to be unnecessary pain at work. Its ridiculous! One little tube of lotion isn't a big deal. It will fit in my pocket for crying out loud! Should I talk to human resources?

    If on an online job application it asks for a resume but I don't have one, would it be wise to make one first? I'm 17 and applying at a fast food joint. Also, how exactly should I go about creating a resume? What do I use to make it?

  • Is this considered lying on a resume?

    Best answer: Yes, it's lying (although I suppose she did "complete" the courses, just not successfully), but companies generally wouldn't care about which specific courses someone took. Did she claim to have some sort of degree?
