I am so beyond ready to leave my current job, but can’t yet, since bonuses are paid out in January. 😬

In the meantime, I’ve applied to a lot of similar roles (slightly higher) but have not heard - good or bad - from any. Is it common for companies to slow down hiring in December because of Q4 rush, people on holiday, etc.?

The person is inconsistent with their attitude/ service. Ex: One day they are very friendly, the other day is talking on the phone and doesn't open the door. Not professional. Not amazed with the service but don't want to be on bad terms either.

There are so many holiday parties to attend. Any advice on how to make it to many and still be a functional human by the end of the week?

January, I got a promotion to store manager of a Metro by T-Mobile. The job however came with a mandatory 60hrs/6 day work week. And salary at $1,000 a week. There are no benefits, PTO, or even holiday pay. I get a commission on my sales with how things are now a days, it's like an extra $400 a month. I'm not really happy, and am having doubts about staying here. Is this a good salary? At $16.6/hr i feel as it's not.

Employer requires use of vacation for sick days for non-exempt salaried employees, then surprises everyone with a forced, unpaid week at the end of the year due to shutdowns. At this point, most people that can afford to plan for the week of vacation time they have to use at the end of the year.

Is this common practice? I am pretty sure it is completely legal, but still seems like a bad policy.

I love what I do and where I work - I’ve grown a great network/ reputation throughout the entire company, but it’s getting to that point in my life where we want to build a family. My company offers zero paid leave and has confirmed that policy will stay in place. Not to mention we cannot accumulate PTO and most only get 2-3 weeks off a year AND the company blocked FMLA because it’s owned and operated on tribal land. I’m just not sure if it’s worth seeking new opportunities or sticking it out?

Accounts in forbearance, even administrative forbearance, are calculated at a higher monthly payment by the underwriter.
