When you get a rental car, what do you do to make sure you don’t get taken advantage of for some bogus issue/scratch that’s already on the car? Take pic/video before, tell the checkout person of any issues (although this can be hard especially if at a smaller airport & you get the keys in the airport and there’s no gate when you leave), buy the rental insurance? If you have a card that covers rental cars (CSR, Amex Hilton) do you decline rental insurance and use the card benefits?
Marriott didn’t let my deliveroo driver into the hotel as “it’s against policy to have outside food delivered”....anyone else had same problem?
Logged onto my plane’s WiFi only to discover this little nugget... as I was currently on an American Airlines flight that had just departed from Miami... 🤬
I wanted to apply for credit cards to get bonus points. My credit scores are 799 with equifax and 798 with TransUnion. Have 4 hard inquiries still on the record. My application for the amazon credit card got declined last March when my score was a bit lower and got ~6 hard inquiries. Personally I think it sucks that we won't find out if the credit card application is accepted or declined until the credit is hard pulled. Is there a more reliable way to be sure of the application being accepted?
Is it rational to want to leave because I don't want to travel? Been on the bench & it has me thinking that something local would be much more suitable for me. Should I explore firm options first?

Y'all. WHY does housekeeping tap tap tap on my door with their pens?! It's every city, every hotel, the same obnoxious tapping. Do they teach this in Hospitality School?!

I swear I saw a post about it before…but El Clasico in Spain. How do you actually get tickets without being a paid club member or through a travel agency? Like El Clasico trips has a package for $3k but I wanna go to both cities while there and do my own thing so it seems like a waste just to spend 5 days and all that money on one of the cities. Any other way to get tickets (looking specifically for the Madrid game in March)?

Is there any way to get a refund for a flight booked through CSR points? I think it was a non refundable flight 😭
Lessons learned this week in travel: have a toiletries bag you leave in your rental car or at the client site to avoid using hotel soaps or having the TSA confiscate your oversized bottles.
Went through multiple interviews that were set up by this recruiter. I told him my expected base from the beginning. Today he called me to let me know that the company could not meet my compensation..
Which is better when it comes to MBB and healthcare technology / product companies (like Amazon) recruiting? Duke or Ross? Also any other consider in this bucket?
@snyk Does anyone work at (or know someone that works at) the company SNYK? If so, what’s it like being in sales there?
I need a little guidance on this one: I have a team member whose role is to make certain key decisions for our client. When she joined, I learned she has kids in school. I run our meetings. I’ve been incredibly flexible for her schedule, changed meetings around, and have never asked twice about her having to miss any. She hasn’t stepped up in her role compared to others in her position. I assumed she’s shy and constantly ask for her opinion so to encourage her confidence. Today I…

Recently relocated to a new city (MCOL) from HCOL, got a big salary bump, was thinking about saving money and got a really cheap studio. But I hate the place so far for 1) I can hear noise for everything 2) The place is too small 3) emotional depressed for living in such a small place. Should I pay 1.5X rent to get out here and get a nice place?

Does anyone make employees submit their formal complaints via written/email? I’m tired of these “I want to complain and I want you do something, but don’t tell anyone” requests.
Looking for a position of Wintel/VMware lead, have 10 YOE, would be great if any can refer on any open requirements in Bangalore. Thanks in advance
Accepted an offer to join a small mom and pop firm (~50 ppl) there’s ex big 4 there, I’ll be running implementations as a Director. At a tier 2 firm now (going on 4 years) only a small pay bump but better title. TC could be much higher as they claim to pay a high bonus. Don’t start until end of July, and haven’t yet put in my two weeks. Sort of regretting the decision to leave. Feels like this would prevent me from getting to big 4, MBB or similar sized firm later down the road. Thoughts?
How will the H1b process work for those getting seleted in round 2? I mean, October 1 is around the corner.
Why is everyone so stuck on becoming a program manager or product manager at FAANG. Literally every post I see is about consultants trying to exit into these roles.
How does one handle a situation where you are thrown into a meeting without having any background and asked to lead. For ex: director calls in sick etc... that’s been my worst nightmare
