Does anyone tip hotel front desk ppl? I stay at the same hotel & have gotten to know some of the staff - they give me upgrades sometimes! I’m just a little shy about slipping a bill over. Advice?
American airlines is so dumb. Was trying to purchase MCE seats for a long-haul. You can’t
purchase it online after check-in. And they can’t uncheck you over the phone. Good thing I fly Delta!
I want to dispose my office chair and i live in Newton. Anyone knows if i can leave it curbside or where i can check for the details?
House or student loans? About 150k in federal student loan debt, and with IBR payments I can save for a down payment on a house in 3-4 years. My other option is to aggressively pay my student loans, but this would take me 10-12 years and I wouldn’t have money for significant travel, down payment, things I never had growing up, etc.... I feel like I work too hard to deny myself “the fruits of my labors” if you will, and that I only have so much time to enjoy my younger years. Thoughts?
I have just immigrated to worth, Illinois from the Middle East. I have 6+ years of experience (proofed by a certificate) from Four Seasons Hotel Amman. Can anyone recommend a 5 stars hotel with front desk supervisor vacancy?
Anyone stayed at JW Marriott or Hyatt Ziva in Cabo? I've got points to spend. Wondering which is the better value or choice.
I’m looking for a new job after I lost my Head Of Brand role with my previous employer’s layoffs (it was a media and travel startup). It feels like a weird time for job searching… i’m getting interviews cancelled and roles being closed without hiring. Starting to feel some PTSD from job hunting in 2009.
Any leads? I’m looking for Head of Brand, Design Director or even Senior Brand Designer roles.
Anybody work with United Healthcare? I just had a second interview. I did some research prior to the interview about the employee benefits, but did not see if health insurance if offered upon hire date or after the 90 day period. I typically don’t like asking this during an interview. Thank you!
Thinking about adding new activity to my routine ( from time savings of travel) - any suggestions ?
Anyone know if there’s a workaround way to get access to a 24h therapy phone line through Kaiser? Seems like they don’t offer talk therapy by phone which is a real bummer if you’re physical distancing or travel often. I’m open to learning about non-Kaiser options as well that have great therapists and ideally are easy on my wallet. I think my dream therapist would be someone who’s also trained as a dating coach (maybe someone like Brooke Sprowl in LA except covered in network)

Ever since moving to hybrid work, my coworkers are always complaining about how much they hate their jobs, how much of a hassle it is to travel or work from home. How can you be expected to do your job when you're just so far away from everything?

I have friends who work at all of these companies and while the Google people get paid more, the people at Raytheon/Lockheed work on what seem to be much more difficult challenges (e.g. Radar, various space systems, flight sims, and that's just the unclassified stuff).What makes one better than the other?
Asked on the general thread but thought I'd ask here too: recs on best priced for good quality first drone to purchase for travel videos and pics? Not sure what a reasonable price is either?

I’m having trouble brushing off a jerk opposing counsel. I’m in litigation and am a 10 year counsel with a 65+ year old man on the other side. Every thing I do or say gets twisted into me being dishonest or disrespectful. I recognize it’s a him problem and not a me problem, but we’ve had multiple hearings with the court over discovery battles and the court has sided with him several times. I can’t seem to just brush it off and focus on the case. Any tips in dealing with a PITA OC?

From your perspective what's the best consulting firm in Australia or New Zealand? And why - is it the best for your specialty, because of wlb, etc?
@EY 🐠- Is it required to have your residence/ live near home office? My SO is going to grad school in a location with no EY office close by so wondering what my options are.
I am just between a career pivot and I need some advice. I graduated in Biochemistry near the top of my class with an expectation to go into medicine so I had been working in clinical research. But I decided otherwise and want to go into business now, as an analyst. I have some logistics experience and getting the AWS Cloud Practitioner certification but I need to start a new role ASAP. What is the best way to proceed? (I don't even know how to align my resume for this pivot...)
Recommendations for a gynecologist in the Arlington area (preferably near Ballston/Virginia Square)? Not pregnant or looking to be, just for regular checkups.
Is there a tried and true method to applying to roles?
For instance, I usually find a role I’m interested in on LinkedIn then I go to the company’s website and apply there directly. I always take note of the recruiter assigned to the role so that I can contact them regarding my application.
Are there any better ways? What do you all prefer to do?
This is going to be a mistake in an anonymous social ecosystem, but I’m going to try it, lol.
I’ve got a Copy Supervisor & Group Copy Supervisor spot open. Anyone looking? Oncology focused. LMK!

Quarantine life makes me realize how much my SO loves watching thriller. I HATE IT! I got goosebumps all over me the moment the music is on. It is so scary!!!! 🥵🥵🥵
My parents are threatening to cut me out of their will if I move in with my long term (5+ year) boyfriend. I am doing it because it will save money, however my parents think this isn’t a good enough reason. I pay for everything myself and I feel that if they believe I should live alone then they should chip in towards that - otherwise I’m going to make the best financial decision for myself. We love manipulative hyper-religious parents.
Oh wait a minute.... I’m seeing a lot new firms here. Is this you Coronavirus missing up with consultants?
Serious question: When are they going to bring back Broad City or Difficult People? Or Billy in the Street? Or at least replace them with a good show. Now i'm forced to binge-watch them like a loser.
What’s a nice way to tell your manager they’re micro-managing? We have a decent working relationship, but sometimes they have their days where their micromanaging is ridiculous. Like...staying on a zoom call and watching me work, ridiculous.

Does anyone just not care anymore? At all? About anything? I don’t feel like doing any work. If I get fired, fine. If I have to move back in w my parents, fine. If I deplete all my savings, fine. Ppl are dying, fine. Global depression, fine. I’m numb. I straight up just don’t care about anything anymore.
I had 3 webex interviews with the same link. The first worked great but the final 2 were no shows, the “join meeting” button never lit up when a host starts the meeting again.
HR claimed that the interviewers did in fact go the meetings, but that there could have been a connection issue. As someone who works in digital media, I feel as though the interface is rather simple and the error is not on my part or the app. Have you had any no-show web interviews? Issues similar? What are your thoughts?
Dunno if this is the place but can't think of anywhere else to post this. Anyone who plays video games also use Google Stadia? I've never met a single other person who does. It's fantastic

At the point where I am so disappointed in my friends and acquaintances for no social distancing at all. I thought they were smarter but I see them going to bars, having group trips to the beach and it’s very upsetting. Very strange type of FOMO when you’re not invited because people know you’re taking social distancing seriously....
I am currently on a 2 month LOA from a big box retail store to care for a child having surgery. I have been contacted with a job offer in office admin which I studied at College last year. I want to start new place before I leave first place to be sure I like it. Do I need to tell my current employer? The new place is willing to work around his needs and do a home/office hybrid for a few weeks.
