PLEASE READ ENTIRE PROJECT FOR BID OFFERS. THERE ARE DIRECTIONS BELOW THAT MUST BE ADDRESSED IN ALL BID SUBMISSIONS. ANY BIDS NOT INCLUDING ALL CRITERIA LISTED, WILL NOT BE INCLUDED IN OUR APPROVAL PROCESS.

I'm a private chef, and I work with hundreds of elderly clients with food allergies or intolerances.

I need a user-friendly website with a Recipe Finder software platform that my clients can use to cross-reference my master recipe ingredient list with all of my 200+ recipes. I need the software to allow the user to alert me about what ingredients they don't like or are allergic to in their food.

I need the software to be able to do the following three steps:

  1. The user will log into the website and open a master list of ingredients.

  2. The user will mark/check any ingredients on the master list that they do NOT want included in their recipe.

  3. The software will cross-reference the master ingredient list with 200+ recipes and identify qualified recipies.

  4. The software will compile a list with images of all recipes that do NOT contain the identified and checked ingredients from step 1.

  5. The final list needs to appear in ascending order and must provide color coded recipes beginning with the least amount of identified and checked ingredients: Examples of the order of qualified recipies listed below:

Green - Starting with all recipes that have 0 identified and checked ingredients.

Green - list recipes with only 1 identified and checked ingredients,

Dark yellow - list all recipes with 2 identified and checked ingredients,

Dark yellow - list all recipes with 3 identified and checked ingredients,

Red - list all recipes with 4 identified and checked ingredients,

Red - list all recipes with 5 identified and checked ingredients

Black - list all recipes with 6 identified and checked ingredients,

Black - list all recipes with 7 identified and checked ingredients.

The master list must offer the following options:

  • A search function (for example, a customer can search for a recipe that contains only chicken and rice),

  • An excel upload button/option

  • A print report button on report/option

  • An email to a friend / Share results button/option

I need a website with service that includes IT. I'd prefer wix or Godaddy, Shopify or some other service that includes hosting.

The website platform must:

  • Contain a customer log-in,

  • Maintain the customer profile,

  • Be easy to use,

  • Be visually appealing, and

  • Be uploaded onto a website.

Necessary skills - I need from you:

  • Excellent communication skills.

  • Programming and web design

  • CSS / design experience

  • Keep all deadlines.

  • Create a user-friendly program and upload it to a webpage.

  • Support for future addons or customizations.

I have built several websites and I am aware that this is a fairly simple project. Any bids that are overpriced will not be considered. All bids that are priced fairly will be looked at.

Please send portfolios of past experience along with reviews or references with all bids. We can not work with anyone unless we are able to view past performance.

Thank you for considering this project. I am ready to begin immediately. #unemployment #workfromhome #jobsearch #interview #application #hiringevents #healthcare #coronavirus #resume #deliverydriver #firstjob #foodservices #retail #motivation #ridesharedriver #warehouselogistics #careerdiscovery #hiringnews #officelife #aboutmyjob #stressful #callcenter #veterans #ageism #truckdriver #losangeles #successstory #delta #record #drama #termination #jobsearchlosangeles #advice #onlinetraining #dataentry #coronaviruslosangeles #stimulus #hiringeventprep #unemploymentcalifornia #applicationblackhole #washingtondc #walmart #texas #beenwondering #skillboost #california #florida #policy #arkansas #employershoutout #careerpath #amazon

A friend of mine has been on her job for quite some time. Lately her new managers have been criticizing her work, speak negatively towards her, and even placed her on a PIP. She called me this weekend frantic because she's never been treated this way by any other managers before and suddenly she's a poor performer. She shared how other teammates are talking amongst themselves about finding a new job, posting out or taking an LOA. She's afraid HR will only make the situation worse and it's considering legal advice at this point. I really hate to hear this because she goes to work everyday and this just started happening. She's experiencing stress, anxiety, weight gain, and just an emotional roller coaster. Should she seek legal advice or contact the EEOC?

So I have a hum dinger of a situation on my hands, passing on what has happened to me so someone else does not make the same mistakes I did. Okay so for the past 6 months, I have seen jobs that are in my field, that are right in my educational and skill set background, posted by an agency in Montana for the state of Montana. I am presently not there but I have been trying to relocate there because I have family there, one of my cousins works at the Governors office. Not that I have used that little nug of info, because I would rather get somewhere on my own steam, not because of my cousin or family name. (My first mistake, should have used it because I really wanted to work at this agency and had I, what happened may not have happened.) Regardless, I know right from the start I have an uphill battle because I am not there. I get it and accept it. I eat Wheaties, laughs, I am up for the challenge.

So after far too many rejection letters, and not giving up, I had 8 separate applications in for different positions, all under the same agency in several departments at that time. I am tenacious, I admit it. I grew up on a cattle ranch I am use to getting kicked, tossed and stomped by horses, I don't give up. Laughs.

My tenacity pays off and I get called last week for an interview. I was so excited that I missed the name of the lady who called me for the interview and she did not name the specific department or the position. We set up a zoom interview for a week later, on the following Thursday at 8:30 a.m. and she said she would send me a link for the interview. This is SOP (standard operating procedure) for a zoom interview post pandemic. I wait and no email. Tuesday rolls around and still nothing. I am starting to get nervous, no link, is there tech issue, what is happening? I have no idea who to call (my own fault, I should have made sure I had her name, I own it, my bad) or what position or department because she did not tell me which one, so looking on the portal does no good. I have 8 apps in, so I can not be proactive. I am just stuck and have to wait. MT is very laid back, I am thinking it will show Wednesday. Nothing arrives. Thursday, the morning of the interview, I am in panic mode, no link and an interview in 30 minutes, that I was more than eager and ready to do. So I send an email to the Agency Director, because I figure he could tell me who to talk to. It is 8 departments in this agency, I can go to the top, flip a quarter or send 8 emails. Path of least resistance, go to the top. I leave a message. 8:30 comes and goes no email with link, no call back yet. So 8:40 I head out to try and salvage another interview I put off, to have that zoom interview. I get home at 11:30 a.m. to an email that had been sent at 8:47 a.m. that says "are you going to bother to show up for your interview" with the link. I am floored when I see this. Clearly she was able to make contact and send the link, so maybe tech issue, I just don't know. I don't think she is evil and undermining. She had a whole week prior to that, to do so. For me the first email she had sent me that I had gotten was snide, had the link and was 17 minutes after the interview. I then see another email, where the tone is she is put out to have to ask, and asking to reschedule my "missed interview". I am upset at this point. Not getting a link sounds like a cop out, granted it is true, I never got one, but that is what it sounds like, an excuse. I am at this point, laboring under some delusion this was a tech glitch. I would not have hired someone after a missed zoom interview, who would? I accept that this missed interview has basically affected all 8 other applications. I am humiliated! I have to accept that my first impression has been made by my not getting link and missing an interview. Hard pill to take but I stick a straw in my little juice box and suck it up. As hard as it is for me to give up, I may as well save everyone time and withdraw all of my other applications. #commonsense #tryandsavesomeface So I tell her that I never got the link and my not getting it and missing the interview has made my first impression for me. I then advise her I will be withdrawing all of my other applications. I feel like my back is against the wall, I am humiliated. I send the email and get on the portal and I doing exactly what I said I was doing. The Deputy Director of the agency calls me for the director over my call and leaves a message. I am horribly upset, I have just withdrawn all my applications because of no link and her email - "are you going to show up". I feel like her email was very unprofessional. I return the call and I explain what I wanted and he tells me, she assured me that she sent it. He is under some idea she had sent it before the interview which she had not. So did she send it, Yeah she did, 17 minutes after the interview. So things came into focus real quick at that point, this was NOT a tech issue, she just did not send the link. I don't know why but she did not until 17 minutes after the fact. So not only did this lady just annihilate any chance I had, she sent a snide email and then she lied about it. So me withdrawing was MY only option because they think I just missed a Zoom interview because she lied. So moral of my story... 1- if you have a connection with someone do NOT have pride, integrity and a delusion you can stand on your own ... use the connection. 2- NEVER get excited, write it down, wait until you are off the phone and have all the information before you get excited. 3- Be proactive, if you have not gotten a link 72 hours after the initial set up, touch base. Making sure there is not tech issues is smart policy. 4- NEVER assume that anyone, even state employee HR people, have ethics and integrity, act on the side of caution and keep your ducks in a row. Not everyone is bad but there are bad ones. #interview #drama #montana

On November 5th 2019 I was fired from a job that I held for 13 years. The company said I was being Fired due to work place violence but I only had an argument with a co-worker that I never got violent and the co-worker said he never felt threaten. I have an arbitration hearing on February 6, 2020 and just want some advice on how to act or what to say during this hearing that might get my job back.

I have a coworker who I’ve been having to do most of her work from the direction of my boss but I feel like this girl was taking advantage and kept giving me all of her work I ended up sick this past week and she told me she’s got another job

She works for a different company I’ve asked my company to move me as I have been working under unfair work conditions for almost a year

I had a job interview a couple of weeks ago but have not heard anything back from the company

I was working for a company for almost 3yrs. When I accidentally gave a customer an employee's discount. I received a call from corporate regarding this matter and I told them that I was will to pay the difference. Instead of giving me a second chance they suspended me and within 12hrs after my suspension they called and told me that I was terminated. I worked my butt off for this company and they didn't give me a write up, a warning, nothing. Sad to say but this company is a very disappointment.

I have been working for Lyft for about two years now and have def seen enough to write a book about the weird stuff people say and do. Just last week I picked up a couple that were screaming at one another. They just got into my car as if I weren't even there and just kept on yelling. I would be so embarrassed but they didn't seem to care. Apparently the gentlemen had been out too late the night before and his (wife?) was less than happy about it. I eventually dropped them at the airport but about 7 times she demanded that I turn around and bring her back to her pickup location. Life is short people, be happy!

Have you ever worked a job where felt you just couldnt click or fit in with your coworkers? I started a job totally outside my experience level. I've always worked upper management but my health took a bit of a turn so I sought a position that I could go to work and then simply go home. My first day, the lady that was to train me had a foul attitude towards me from the start. She had been with the company 19+ years. I chalked her attitude up to her working 16 to 18 hours a day 7 days a week. I had no idea she was in fear of loosing her job to me. Her training was minimal to say the least. She did not want me to know much of anything about the job. She wanted me to know just what I needed to get by and be dependent on her. Massively long story shorten to a long story she was bashing me to superiors behind my back, blaming me for her mistakes. She succeeded in turning my superiors against me. I worked 12 hour shifts but I worked 6 pm to 6 am so I did not work with any of my supervisors. I worked alone. It became clear to e that they wanted to let me go, for almost a year but never had a good enough reason. Then I had 3 weeks of accumulated time off, so I put in for 4 days off. The day I returned my supervisor and one of the HR ladies came in and he said he had to let me go. I had been expecting it for so long that it actually did not phase me. He gave a few reasons which I answered each charge with a very reasonable explanation, even to the point the HR lady started glaring at my supervisor. As I was walking out of the office the HR came out with me and told me who to call about getting hired back. Now comes my delima..... I later heard through other employees that they had IT in numerous times trying to get him to do something to my computer. He refused and even walked out and quit. This was prior to my time off. During my time off they got a new guy in there that was on my computer and that's when my supervisor was claiming to HR that I had downloaded spyware. Well I've never had any downloading priveledges, as employees seldom ever do, so there was no way I did it. He never mentioned to me anything about this in my termination that morning., I don't know how to handle this. Do I just let it go and go about my way or do I confront? Oh by the way, the girl they hired to replace me did take this womans place and they terminated the woman. Lol.

What's your story about a moment in your current or past job where you witnessed something happen at work and wonder how did this person ever get hired?

The worst day was when Bob had. A heart attack. Scared the baggeebas out of me . Bob treated me like a son . We gave him CPR until the ambulance arrived. He came too loading him in and he said just take care of things I'll be back. I wasn't sure how to handle things answering everyone's questions but all worked out . when Mrs. Kathy got back she looked at me and said " if it wasn't for you we couldn't do this " I walked out th we office set on the stairs and cried.
