Definitely time-off, I could use a day away from work.

For gift card... how much are we talking? I don't want a $5 Starbucks card for Juneteenth.

Food, GIVE. ME. FOOD.

It depends, if it's a $10 or less gift card you can keep it. If it's just an afternoon off, you can keep it. If it's boxed sandwiches...you catch my drift lol

Time off!

After several reschedules, I was finally confirmed with the actual dial-in information ;) for two days 5 interviews. I did the first one with the hiring manager and someone shadowing him. Interviewers did not show up for the second two meetings on the schedule. Not sure what to do at this point. This is AWS. Folks are saying they went through the process pretty quickly. I feel like I already lost a huge amount of time getting the save the date and then taking time off from work.

I’m 90% certain my owners are selling our privately held financial services company. This is a family owned company and they have always been very generous and cared for their employees. I’m not sure whether I should start pursuing other opportunities and cash out my PTO or stay until the end and hope they want to still care for their employees once the acquisition is complete. Has anyone been in a similar situation and have any advice to offer?

Is it a red flag when someone reaches out to schedule an interview on a Saturday? (On a holiday weekend to boot?)

Is that person just trying to get shit done, maybe forgot what day it is, or is that a sign that the company doesn’t respect work-life balance?

Hi Fishes, is it a holiday today in TSYS on occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi?

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.

Have been getting hit up by places about great jobs I’m excited about, but they happen to be at places with known diversity problems. I can’t shake that feeling that they’re talking to me because I’m a POC and they need to diversify, not necessarily because of my experience and skill set. Anyone have advice of how to fight that feeling? Other advice?

So, I started a job in lockdown. During that time I spoke to management about BLM and racism in the industry. I’m POC. They were open and positive about it. Last week my CD said that though he’s really happy with my work, I‘ll be let go after my trial period because the agency is not doing well financially. Which is true. But I also notice that after I’m gone, the creative dept will be only white and mostly male. Not intentional...right? (interns are gone too, one being the only Black creative)
