Is it legal to make Salary employees work 7 days a week at 10 to 12 hours a day? I understand Salary workers are given one flat payment no matter how many hours they work. Issue is I just got a salary position at a new company and they make me work from home on the weekends and keep me late on the week days. It's impossible to take care of my 5 month old and work these hours. I am in Atl GA. Thank you!
How does one find permanent employment these days that isn’t call center based?
I graduated college in the mid 90s with two useless bachelors degrees and immediately began office jobs. I then moved into insurance claims which I made good money doing. Unfortunately I became horrifically ill, had to go on long term medical leave and eventually lost my job.
After almost 2 years out of work, I found a temp job doing outbound calls for a call center and quickly moved up the ranks to team leader. Then they moved to another part of the country and I was unable to relocate.
This was 5 years ago and I have been unable to find permanent non-call center work since. I hate working in call centers where my every move is micromanaged like I’m a toddler and I went from being salaried at $50K a year to making $13 an hour with no benefits and can’t seem to break this cycle.
How does one find permanent, non call center work in 2019?
I have had interviews with the recruiters from two different companys for the same position and then was supposed to be interviewed with the company. After waiting two weeks, I find out they have dropped the salary by $5,000 a year but still want to intervieww me? I don't even know how to respond to that. #jobsearch #advice #salary
I'm a PHP developer and am used to making 80k a year. My late wife passed 4 years ago and I meat someone and now re-married so I took a job at Bergan-Blue as an Electronics assembler, but now 5 weeks after marriage my wife is pregnant so what should I do, the cap for my position is 40k and it seems PHP is much harder to get hired for these days, any advice?
