I'd like an interview, on Sunday or otherwise. 😕
But maybe if I had one, I'd also complain.

Good luck!

Question for you all...

How do you tell a new employer you're interviewing for that you're leaving your current job because of the work environment...

For example, we see up I've been with your company for only a year, how come you're wanting to leave?

My reply: The work environment doesn’t allow for me to collaborate with others, have the flexibility like most, and be able to have opportunity for growth..

Is that okay to say?

Ever been “leapfrogged” for promotion by someone more junior in your own team? Any advice on coping? Not confirmed/announced yet but I’ve heard it from an inside source. I’ve had nothing but positive feedback all year, they knew I wanted a promotion and had made the right noises about getting one when possible, and I didn’t think this colleague was performing significantly better so hurting pretty bad about it... Trying to keep it in perspective of “at least I still have a job” but this sucks. 🙃
