What's the harshest thing your Buyer has ever said to you?

Ex: Buyer emailed my colleague "instead of sharing photos of our empty shelves why don't you spend your time getting us more product"

I almost had a customer take a swing at me when I told him there was no way we could help him given the parameters he wanted us to meet.


Nah, it was all good on the end. I still got the po. 😆😆😆


That I’ll never get more of their business because we wanted to get paid on a receive-able that was 90 days past due. That wasn’t the worst, the buyer said it to me with his chair and back to me.

Death threats due to software /hardware not working causing massive outages & thousands of dollars in losses. Not my current employer.

Hi, Cognizant said after the HR Round I'll receive a mail that will have 'Click here' url to fill Online Candidate Information Sheet. I received that email but that mail doesn't have any link to submit online CIS.
I tried calling both HR and Recruiter, they're neither picking up my calls nor answering my emails. As far as I know they won't release my offer letter without that Online CIS form.
What should I do now?

Need referrals for Facility Manager

I applied few weeks ago to Moon Active’s QA bootcamp. Received a decline. I reapplied few weeks later while adding a personal note describing that I started taking few relevant Udemy courses. For my second application. And at the same time I messaged a link on LinkedIn and emailed a lead in HR department. But for my second time I didn’t receive any message. Was I marked by the company? Is it unacceptable to reapply for a job you’re dreaming about ? Is there anything to do now?


(Info needed) I'm a bachelor and I'm looking for a minimalist 1RK/1BHK apartment in Marathahalli.

Can anyone tell me what kind of deposit and rent I can expect? I'm looking for individual houses and not societies.


This may not be the Bowl to realize how awful the housing problem in our city is—given the many laments of not finding suitable apartments for $3,000 /month budgets. But good to occasionally remember that NYC household median income is $67,046 and is only $42k in the borough of Bronx. Imagine how challenging it is for so many families in our city to find affordable housing as we price out so many New Yorkers.


Famous last words? I’ll start: “The deck was built in InDesign.”

Recruiter lied about interview process and job type. First interview goes well and interviewer tried to schedule me for in-person interview first thing next morning.

Canadian Opinions?

13 yr outside Sales Experience in the B2B space, multiple roles/companies. Current quota is $15MCAD, I usually do not bad in quota but lately has shifted to rewarding medicorciy and "pooling" some numbers countrywide which i really dont like.
Current comp is $85k Base and $115 OTE with a ceiling of $150k CAD/$120k US. Feel it's too little for my experience and they are taking perks away by the day.
Thinking of moving to I tech sales? Anyone else do it? What's comp look like?

I’m thinking in taking AWS and Azure courses to beef up my CV, as I’m looking to break into a sales role in tech. I’ve had mixed feedback from recruiters saying it would be beneficial and others saying it won’t help because my background and skill sets lie with sales and people. Any thoughts on this? If it helps, I’ve been working as a senior negotiator in prime residential real estate (London, UK) for 3 years. I also have 5 years experience running my own business in the coffee industry.
