If someone booked and paid for a Marriott stay for me, but has my name on the reservation—how can I get the points and status benefits (late checkout, etc)? Or is that out of the question…
My live-out nanny tested positive for Covid last night. What protocols should I follow? When can she be back to work? Should I ask her to wear a mask when she’s back? For now, I told her to stay home till next Tuesday. My daughter is 14 months old and hasn’t gotten Covid, the vaccine or any sort of immunity towards it. I want to be as careful as I can!
Went through 2 egg retrievals & 1 miscarriage to get pregnant. I’ve been teleworking bc of COVID. However, I have to start going into the office during my third trimester. I don’t understand why it is necessary to put myself and baby at risk. 😔 Am I overreacting (pregnancy hormones)? Or would you be upset? Open to suggestions on how to look on the bright side. Thanks!
Since Covid has made all meetings virtual, it has become completely commonplace at my company for people to be double and triple booked for meetings, with the expectation that they will jump between all of them, chiming in as needed and asking to be caught up on what has been discussed if they have missed something. This seems completely unreasonable/unworkable to me as standard practice but I have never worked in another corporate environment having come from private practice. Is this common?
Hi everyone 👋
I have worked with this group for 2 years as a front desk administrator for an endoscopy suite. Along with that role I have taken on other responsibilities including Open Access Scheduling and the occasional resume screening and interview scheduling through indeed. About a year in, management increased my pay from $14/hr to $15.25/hr during the height of covid. I am starting school soon and will be working part time. Would it be fair to ask for another raise?
Who here is still bagholding big “covid losers”? What’s your long term plan? In long portfolio.
Any recommendations for a brief case and/or a weekend duffel travel bag? Not looking to spend more than $200 each
Just found out my one week old baby nephew was recently exposed to Covid. Has anyone had any experience with this? Currently very nervous & scared.
Are we in wave 3 or 4 of COVID-19?
Any of you know the best paying travel nursing agency in the Ohio/Michigan/Eastern Pennsylvania area?
I am a field marketer. I travel and cover 12 states. HQ is across the US on the east coast. My manager put a surprise calendar invite twice now to go to home office without consulting dates to see if we were available. I stood up and asked to be included on available dates and said I will attend virtually but asking me to be away for 4 additional full days away from my family without asking me is not OK. I already travel a lot and this boundary is super important to me. Am I right or wrong?
If Trump is re-elected, healthcare will be gone and covid will stay for 4 more years causing suicides from depression and more deaths! But don’t worry, it’s all fake news and a hoax!
I am moving from nursing leadership to clinical nurse consulting as a independent contracor. I am wondering if there are any other RNs who work as independent contractors and what kind of liability insurance you carry. Professional, business? Also wondering what kind hourly rate you see on average and is there a different rate for travel. Thanks!
Currently in India and planning to fly back to the US sometime in the next two weeks. Is it worth the Omicron risk to stop for a few days in Europe to travel before arriving in the US? What should I look out for? 26 year old US citizen, double vaccinated.
Have one night in San Francisco before a Napa wedding. Never been. Which SPG/Marriott do you recommend?

How is PTO truly unlimited if leaders are notified when people take too much (whatever that means) PTO and will tell employees to not take more PTO? Isn’t that just limited PTO except instead of it being documented it’s just up to whether your leadership thinks you’ve been taking too much PTO and/or if they like you?
I am a female developer, I started in QA & learned everything on the job to become a junior dev and then to developer. After 6 years at the same company I think it’s time to move on.
I know vue & have developed everything from emails to landing pages to being second on a WP site. My only hesitation is I’m nervous I am not good enough at JS to look for a new job.
Will companies be willing to train me more due to the current job market & being female?
Advice on learning JS or job search please

I got promoted kinda young to ACD. I love my team and they’re very supportive. But...I’m about 10k-20k under what an ACD should make. It’s bugging me. What should I do?
Recruiter: the agency passed on you, the CDs just didn’t see anything in your book that interested them....😭😭😭
Not all of us are colorful
CDs: I'm finally getting to manage more junior writers, but having been a writer myself for so long, I'm struggling with how to guide them constructively toward an answer rather than straight-up suggest lines I know will work. Any tips for how to give that kind of push in the right direction?
A question for the more senior creatives: how much conflict is normal in an art director/copywriter relationship?
Has anyone made the jump from studio / layout to creative? It’s different at a lot of places but am curious about people’s experiences making the jump from studio to art direction or design?

I always thought LA was supposed to be easier and cheaper than NYC. It’s not, at all. And the people are generally passive aggressive af.

Might have a potential opportunity to switch over to my dream job but currently in the midst of pre-production for a shoot that will happen at the end of September (I’m now an AD btw). Should I try to inform my potential new gig that I won’t be available till mid-October or just be available and have my team/agency figure it out and give my 2 weeks? I still want to own the work on this shoot but don’t want to miss out on a great opportunity.
How often do you do your timesheets? And what’s the longest you’ve gone without doing them?
any advice for making the jump to in-house? Most of my network is relevant to the agency world so i am anticipating not knowing anyone in-house as a barrier. Most of my experience is in social and I’m not sure what the output is for in-house, although I’m sure that depends on the company. I’m really coming in here blind lol! But would really love to make the jump.
