Accenture HR: When a prospective employer runs a background check, does HR tell them reason for leaving (quit, fired, etc.) or just dates of employment? Was fired in September and wondering if I am required to tell them (upon asking why there’s a gap) if I was fired or just that I decided to leave.
Is end-of-year bonus season a lost cause at this point? (In a firm with no layoffs or pay cuts yet).
Can COVID be transmitted through water?

I got laid off in august and found a freelance gig a couple weeks later. If the freelance gig goes away will I qualify for unemployment? Assuming I don’t qualify right now, right? (I’m in CA)
Hi. I have a question. In a world where COVID is under control, how would you feel if your companies went back to being fully in the office? But maybe others were adopting a hybrid model- some days remote, some days in the office. Would it make you want to work elsewhere? How important is being able to work remote (at a location of your choice, not at client /travelling) a few days a week to your job satisfaction?
For those who have roommates and contracted covid, how did you and your roommate(s) dealt with the situation sharing an apt? Did everyone just end up with covid? Looking for tips/tricks and how long the whole process took.
Going home this weekend - what is the most time efficient (minimal disruption to work) way to get rapid COVID test?
I got laid off today and need a new job asap. Would love to connect with anyone looking for a junior writer.

Hey everyone, so my sister and her boyfriend have both gained about 60-70 pounds since COVID started. I’m getting very concerned for them and I’ve seen firsthand how they’re developed awful eating and drinking habits and they hardly ever exercise. I’m very concerned for them, but I have no idea how to talk about it with them and not make them angry or hurt. Any advice on how to have this difficult conversation?
For those of you that have had COVID, how long did you wait before returning to work? (remotely) Still feeling a bit clammy and my back is super achey but overall much better than I was a few days ago. Just curious when others said “good enough” and started working.
Anyone else struggling with post-COVID fatigue and problems concentrating? My doctors mainly said to wait and take it easy. Anything else that worked for you guys?
Anyone fly into JFK recently? What is the covid protocol, do they ask for a negative test or just have you fill out a form?
If you're on a PiP, is it better to quit just before the end stage, when you get fired, or better to get fired and collect unemployment, but also have a company-based termination on your record

HELP! Recently promoted M1, and a very low-performing staff is threatening to go to HR with harassment allegations as a means to protect herself from getting fired. Suggestions?
What's the earliest in someone's tenure you've seen them fired from MBB and why? (Looking for validation that the feeling like I'm doing a sub-par job, but trying to be coachable, 7 months into my job doesn't equate to getting fired in the next 5-17 months...)
Got a verbal offer from a big 4 a month ago, discussed salary expectations 3 weeks ago, still no offer letter. Firm has to let me know it should be coming soon. Are these normal timelines?
When your number 1 company gives you an interview right after you receive an offer from your number 2 company...has anyone encountered this? How do you push the date back?
Flying from Palm Springs to Chicago on AA in Nov. Booked our trip in July and just got informed that the flight has been changed by 7 hours (from 3:30PM departure to 8:30AM). AA is offering either a refund or a flight change but we’re not interested in either since there’s no other direct flight on AA and other airline rates have since shot up. Are we entitled to any compensation? Points/Certificate? Tried arguing with the rep over the phone but he won’t budge.
Anyone at ATL Sky Club?
International flight and no USB? Are you serious AA? Update your shit. At the end of this project I'm doing status match to another airline.
$800 package delivered to the hotel that security can’t “find.” Signed for by them and everything. What are my options??
Senior CW w/ 5 years experience in NYC and MIA?
Mulling over an offer. Is work at MBB way more work / significantly more intense than Big 4? I feel like I have a good brand/rep at EY; not sure if effort to rebuild all of that at MBB is worth it?
My interview for an internship lasted over an hour. Good or bad sign? It was more of a conversation than anything...
Lyft vs uber for rewards? Company politics removed, which has a better rewards system? Flying United not delta FYI and have enjoyed the $5 uber cash every 500 points
I love you guys. My anonymous therapy group, sounding board, and, when needed, unapologetic enablers. Yeah I'll do another shot at PHL, why not?
I am a background check away from putting in my notice. KEEP grinding if you’re miserable and/or have trouble getting out of bed in the morning. This took a lot of ghosting and interviews+offer letters being taken off the table due to COVID. Stay humble and you’ll be next. Take a midday walk and schedule some coffee meetings to expand your network and stay sane.
Hi everyone, I have 5 YOE and skill set of ETL, Oracle fusion cloud, Pl/SQL and BI tools including Sap BODS, OBIEE and BI Publisher.

I feel like Work Well Be Well is a complete joke. How on earth can any firm talk about mental or physical health when we are working 15 hours a day for weeks on end?
Looking for good behavioral and case interview prep resources. All suggestions and recommendations are welcome. Thank you!
