Canadian 🐠, I just had a nightmare online shopping experience with Holt Renfrew. Do not recommend for holiday shopping.

They use a courier called Swyft that didn’t deliver my order but sent me conflicting messages about its status for days. No attempt to deliver whatsoever.

Holt Renfrew told me not to worry and promised me it would be delivered, for days. It never came. Then my order got shipped back to Holts warehouse. I had to chase this order for days. Unbelievable.

I can’t believe this is a problem a reputable retailer is having in 2022.

Yeah I have been shopping with HR lately too. Swyft worked ok for me but it’s hella slow. And what’s with the multiple text messages about the arrival to the warehouse that inform me about absolutely nothing?

What boggled me tho, was that on 11/11 they had singles day sale and I had placed an order for 11/10 for an item that subsequently went on 20% off. They told me they don’t do price adjustments “due to the changing nature of their inventory” 😂 Like hello other dept stores have been doing price adjustment since forever. I shop mostly e-shop at Nordstroms now, HR if I have to, and almost never Saks (though I still shop here in-person for their impeccable in-store tailoring)

…Rant over 😅🤣

But again, why is e-shopping so terrible in Canada?

Know it will vary by fund and city but would be curious for some data points - have anecdotally heard of fewer full sprint weekends, fewer 3/4 am nights, and more protected vacation. Know the opposite tends to be true in consulting - so is this a one off or true more broadly?

I just received my offer letter for PwC! I am nervous about needing to take time off, which I told the recruiter up front about, along with specific dates. I understand accruing time, but he said to not worry about it, it won’t be a problem. If I do not have the 3 weeks needed for PTO, can you use your sick leave, or go negative in PTO?

Anyone familiar with Covid Supplemental Paid Sick Leave in CA? Does having planned time off nullify a full time employee’s ability to use the C19 sick leave if they become sick just prior to the planned time off? (I’ve only been able to find references to eligibility being based off of hours work preceding C19 sick leave - nothing about planned time off)

Quitting before finalizing offers?

I’m at post onsite and negotiation stage at a couple places but it may take another month or 2 due to either hiring freezes or general slow processes.

I want to quit now to go on vacations that I held off during prep. Does it make much difference when I negotiate offers? Like if my upcoming unvested RSU would be (partially) matched, and they find out I quit somehow, is it no longer matched? Other potential snags?

Already burned most of my PTO interviewing.
