I just got some really good advice from @theheartshines, and wanted to share it!

You might be working in a toxic work culture if:

  1. Manager says taking time off makes you look bad, or staying late is required
  2. You get threats to improve results

Has anything like this ever happened to you? #watercooler #RedFlag #RUNifTHIShappens

So today is National Sandwich Day (who knew that Big Lunch Meat and Bread had lobbied for their own day) and many places are offering deals for grabbing a sando.

While I love getting something "free" or at a discount, I'm wondering what's it like to work at one of these spots during these days where customers are now expecting even more from you because it's some National Day. Has anyone had the experience of working at place during one of these "holidays"? What was it like? Hungry minds want to know 🤔 #watercooler

Retail experts are saying that the supply chain "meltdown" will make holiday shopping tough this year, and shoppers are beginning to worry.

Big retailers like Target and Amazon are even offering holiday promos earlier than ever to try and get ahead of the lack of inventory.

This report shows 2 people (one with even a bachelor's degree) applying to 60 jobs (entry level) each, and both only wound up with a SINGLE interview. Neither understood what is going on, but one thing's for sure, they aren't hearing back from employers.

I used to work at a shop where they sold 🍫Halloween candy, and it went on sale every Nov 1st. I always had a sugar hangover by then, but one #coworker refused to buy candy until is was half price.

What's your favorite Halloween candy and what do you think about candy at work?

  • a) eat it until you can't eat it anymore (and thanks to all the coworkers out there who share)
  • b) wait until it's half price in November!
  • c) I'm a Halloween enthusiast but don't do candy
  • d) too expensive any time of year
  • e) you have a another work story you want to share that has nothing to do with candy

SHARE YOUR STORY IN THE COMMENTS BELOW!

I clicked something that said “Disturbing…” so as far as disturbing - I worked in Crime Scene/Forensic and Biohazard Remediation field.

As for frightening (disturbing too) LEO and First Responders along with out health care professionals and frontlines.
