With me being a veteran myself I felt it would be nice to help out fellow veterans who may be in worse shape than I am. I worked my first position for 11 years while working a city job. Now, I'm about to return to the VA until I do retire!

I'll try to make this as short as I can. I'm a 55 year old military vet, I started working for this very small company in 2017. It consisted of manufacturing in a warehouse, which there was a manager , two supervisors, office manager which all 4 had been with the company over 20 years. Myself and another guy was hired the same day he was about 28 years old. In 2019 the company was sold to a larger company which had multiple warehouses throughout the United States. They had approximately 10 more employees all below the age of 25. Within 6 months the manager and two supervisors were gone. The guy that started when I did was promoted to supervisor and they rented another warehouse a mile down the road for inventory. I was put in charge of it not as supervisor but as team leader. Which I had no problem with it because I love the job best job I ever had. The guy started when I did was on salary and I was continuously promised raises. After a year and half I grew frustrated and begin complaining in my warehouse not around them. They installed cameras with audio and video and began eavesdropping. One day at lunch I was called into a meeting and told I wasn't doing my job right but I had never been verbally or written reprimanded. I was told to step down and come back to original warehouse or I would be fired they tried to humiliate me as hard as they could. I agreed to step down out of fear, thank the Lord above I recorded the meeting. After a couple of months I knew I wasn't to be able to work from them so I went to my supervisor and told him I wasn't quitting for any reason but I was going to cooperate and file a complaint. I also recorded that conversation. Thirty minutes after leaving the warehouse I was sent an email accepting my resignation and banning me from all properties including corporate. What should I do?

Nothing just be yourself. It’s mostly physical. But you should choose your mos wisely make sure it is something you want to do and something you could put on a resume when you get out.

Make sure you have some knowledge of the jobs offered and examine if it's something you would like to do in your career. Also, make sure you are able to pass the physical fitness test and meet height/weight requirements. Let them know how you can fit into their culture such as discipline, teamwork, leadership skills etc. Be able to talk through your skillsets and relate them to past job and life experiences. Always be positive when speaking with a recruiter and ask questions about things that you are unsure of.

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

Collared shirt and pants should be more than enough. Suit is not right for the position at all. I've been a superintendent for 16 yrs and if a guy come on an interview for a job to work with in the field in a suit that wouldn't help him with me at all.
