Seriously? I would've rather died than called in sick when I was an intern...sounds like HR needs to vet your candidates better.

Sorry for being human and getting sick? I'd rather have someone stay at home then come in and infect the whole project team

I am talking about when you know they are calling in and they are not sick at all. I.e. They mentioned a party the night before

More responsibility. Less time off

D1 I think the point is that there are people who call in sick when really they'd be fine to come into work. Obviously if you're legitimately sick, staying home is the only sensible decision.

@ Manager- don't be mean just because they are interns. It's ok to complain if day went bad or was even hard, due to one intern.

Curious what others are responsible for when it comes to design (specifically those of you who have a FT designer). Writing callout boxes, pull quotes, etc. is part of the job. But for a recent project I was asked to provide detailed ideas for the header image and in-text graphics, including whether we should go with stock or illustration styles.

I’m new to the firm. My third project my manager was very hands off. He’s wants to have a discussion with me about my performance. He did not give me any support to work with; even when I asked! And my direct manager agrees with him, but it was my third week. What to do? I feel like I’m going to say something crazy. Any advice?

I have COVID and have not been back to school since Christmas break. My district does not require a negative test to return, just 5 days of quarantine. However, I am a special Ed teacher and work with medically fragile kiddos. As a parent I would not want my child’s teacher to return to school knowing they could infect someone…does this seem right???
