Is it worth exploring contract to hire position at Walmart while I am currently a FTE at a product company (average salary and decent workload)? I told them unless they confirm that they would hire after 3-4 months, I wouldn't be comfortable. Any suggestions on how to approach this ? I am not in a hurry to look outside, just waiting for the right opportunity and btw, I cleared virtual onsite interviews at google and right now in team match phase (with no update in last 3 weeks).

I would wait, i took a contract at google after leaving my happy FTE job But i did it bc of the opportunity to break into the tech industry! They hide info from me and never told me i was covering a Mat leave and have no guarantee I’ll convert to FTE which was my goal…With that being said contracts suck i don’t feel like an employee nor do you have the benefits. Go the long route wait till you have a FTE offer from google, while i work the contract im in interviews with Facebook for FTE and i find out Wednesday if i get it im out 😎

Thank you for the insight. Yes, it is always tricky and I never worked as a contractor before. I am sure you did the best you could for FB. All the best!

Do any firms prioritize retention by keeping their employee comp in line with the market to reduce turnover costs? Or do most firms have a “churn and burn” model nowadays where they work people as hard as possible and don’t pay them anything remotely close to competitive because they have already begun to hire their replacements? I get that loyalty is dead and all but surely some firms want to reduce training, onboarding, and development costs through retention?

I recently got an offer for almost double my current salary.

What happens if I want to leave in a few years but only have experience with a few financial statement line items?
