I've been at my current employer for over a year and so far I like the job. Recently though, I've had a few things get on my nerves. The management is very lenient on employees (i.e. no punishment for being late or missing days/performing bad), there's almost no desire to show up on time or to perform well because you will achieve no more than the under-performers. Management promis...

Ok so I am 28 married with 2 children (8 and 14m). I have been at home for almost 2 years and am looking for a job now. I have always worked in sales and done quiet well but due to major dental issues that is not an option right now. Because of this, I have only applied for jobs that would have me out of the public arena ( factories, prisons, etc). I am only trying for these jobs because they ...

There is a guy at work that really really needs to go! I know is sounds terrible and before you say I shouldn't do it know that I have thought about this long and hard and he really needs to go. He would never quit on his own, so I really need to get him fired! What would be the best way to accomplish this? Spam his email with porn? Write a letter to HR?...

At the beginning of 2015 our boss implemented a new policy dealing with our clientele. Even though the new policy isn't related to my job directly, the day it went into effect, the co-worker with whom it directly deals was "out sick". So, it fell on me to tell quite a lot of people about the new policy, and it involved paying a deposit for something, which they had never had to do...
