I received a decent paying offer but there's a probation period of 6months that comes with this. Should I consider this?

This is common with most of the MNCs




It should be fine.


Very common, I'm switching jobs with the same terms

That's comforting. Thank you

As long as you are confident that you can perform well, I wouldn't worry about it.

If a recruiter asks me if I’ve spoken to another recruiter at the company, is it okay if I lie and say no? Or should I just be honest and say yes? I’ve heard of instances where candidates have been ghosted if they say they’ve been in contact with another recruiter. In my case, the recruiter I was in contact with messaged me on LinkedIn and never followed up after our 5 minute phone conversation. I really want this job so I don’t want to mess anything up before getting an interview.

Fishes, need an advice. SO and I have pre-tax salary of $180k. Cleared out all debt recently (education, marriage etc.).15% goes to regular 401k. Confused whether/not to buy dream home of $460k (with closing cost). Numbers at 3% rate and 10k down payment looks doable. Needs suggestion if we need to consider any other points. Buyer mkt in my area (NC) is crazy. Same home would have been 15k cheaper 2 months ago. Rising prices adds more concern to us. we are 1st time home buyers and both on H1Bs

So like a lot of us, I've put on some considerable weight during covid. I had to go into office but everyone's wearing casual - so I bought myself a pair of Good American jeans so they'll hold evening together lol. I bought size 2(my precovid size) & 4(my current size). I could fit myself in size 2 & decided to just put those on instead of size 4. And boy was that a mistake. Ugh - if I sit, it's uncomfortable. If I stand - it's uncomfortable. Ugh. No question here. Just sharing my life today.


Looking to boomerang back to PwC. The offer for a salaried position was pretty solid, but that one-time sign on bonus will go away the next year (obviously). They mentioned ‘Talent-Exchange’ and getting paid hourly with no benefits. If I did that, I would make about 205k (gross, with no benefits). That’s assuming I would average 55 hours a week throughout the year (pretty similar to what I work right now). Anyone have experience doing this? I’m worried averaging 55 is not possible.

Anyway I’m getting a comp call if I started two months ago lol
