Statistically yes. Personally no. Why not ask for a day off work instead? You’re not working for uber after all, and if you get caught sightseeing that would be quite bad for your future...

Are you out of vacation days?
UBS implemented a mental health day for this purpose.

Mental health and decompression are valid sock day reasons. Staring at the ceiling won't help that.

Why not sight see on the weekend.

There have been some posts about getting in trouble for taking days off. I remembered when I student taught years ago there was a teacher who had tons of sick days and was going to retire. I kid you not, he took off almost every Friday and Monday the whole year. He said he was not going to get paid for them so use them and what can they do, he is retiring. Nothing happened to him. Curious to know peoples thoughts on that. I look back and just laugh, not sure if I could do that when its my turn.

I am a Branch Manager of a small scale staffing agency. In this position I started recruiting for skilled labor and home health positions. I have now moved on to recruiting for medical positions and administrative positions. I also manage a team of recruiters, complete payroll, AR/AP, and internal hiring . I am looking to switch to a Senior Recruiter role and have no idea what I should realistically ask for salary wise, does anyone have any recommendations? I have 5 years of experience.

Hypothetical situation during 1st int:

1) A recruiter asks you for compensation preference
2) You don’t answer it and say that you need to get more info on the type of work
3) You ask him/her about the pay band
4) She/he gives you the payband for a lower position
5) You say that we “can make it work”

At the end of the process, would you still ask for a number higher than the high of the range he/she provided? If so, how would you pitch it?
