I've been overpaid on a few things in life. Sometimes, they notice and you suddenly end up with a lot less money, and sometimes you get away with it.

I worked at a big company- nothing huge but they never noticed. Another scenario they shorted my next check.

Funny you post this because it just recently happened. I knew something was off when I had an amazing commission month unexpected and then was in the negative the next month.

Yes, it's happened to me a few times. Every. Single. Time. The answer on what to do is 100% the same. You report it, document and pay any overage back to the company as quickly as possible and then move along. Can you get away with? Sure, maybe nobody will notice but that's not an integral way to handle your business. Best of luck.

No, but anytime I have been overpaid in general I always fess up. I'm too scared they'll find out later and it will blow back on me. I would be careful with that.

Tuhhhhh I wish!!

Yes and we let them know immediately.

Hi! Completely new to this and been blessed with clear skin all my life. Starting to worry about preventing wrinkles, staying moisturized (my skin skews dry), reducing pore size, & looking less tired/more glowing. I want to create a structured, easy, fast daily routine.
Currently I use cerave hydrating facial cleanser when I remember, & sometimes The Ordinary hylauronic acid and retinol.
Recs for facial moisturizers, serums, toner, and SPF that goes on clear?
Thank you skincare lovers!

Currently making $280K cash at a unicorn (well funded relatively stable). Equity grant was $800k at time of grant- probably down a lot. Offer from Google L5 for $300K TC. From purely financial lens- probably makes no sense to join Google given the minor difference between startup cash and google TC, right? The risk adjusted reward here swings toward staying at startup- or would you think about it differently?

Do you give a recruiter from an agency a third chance? One flat out ghosted me last time and before that she canceled on me due to a conflict at the last minute. I know recruiters are busy and have a lot on their plate, but as job seekers who are also working, it’s a lot to stop our day for an interview. I haven’t had too much luck with recruiters referring me to jobs. I’d rather do that myself. What would be a polite way to decline a third chance?

I was getting out of the military, had no directly transferable work skills, and needed to make a living in an expensive city (San Diego). Started looking at my options and found that I could do menial labor for just above minimum wage OR I could learn to get people to buy things and make this wonderful thing called commission! Took a job in insurance sales and the rest is history! Been in sales for about 15 years now ❤️
