What is the dumbest thing you've heard an employer tell you at a job interview?

I was interviewing for a job as an Exchange admin. At the end of the interview I asked a few questions and then one of the guys says "Do you want some constructive criticism?" At that point I knew I didn't get the job, so I said "Sure." The guy says "Your current employer overpays you. By a lot. From what I see on your resume, you're not worth what they're paying you."

Well, this just pissed me off. I decided, since I knew I didn't have the job, to just be an arrogant prick. So I said, "When I started there, I was the lowest paid IT guy they had. In 5 years I saved their asses more than once and spent a lot of weekends working to make sure stuff works and we never have to work weekends again. I am paid more than the rest of my colleagues, because my company wants to ensure that I don't leave. Now if they think I am worth that much money, you really have to wonder what you're missing out on. You had the chance to hire the best man for the job. Now you must settle for someone

[Really dumb question warning] What does it mean that an employer will 'Match up to 6% of my 401k contribution' ?

This is my first job with a 401k benefit. I am just out of college.

To make sure I'm not too out of the ballpark, contributing 6% of my income to my 401k means, ya know, taking 6% of my income and putting it in my 401k, is that right..?

What I'm curious about is what 'matching my 401k contribution up to 6%' means. Does this mean that if I choose to contribute 6% of my salary to my 401k, my employer will also put that same 6% into my account from their own pockets? So, the 6% contribution I make technically turns into a 6% from me + 6% from company pockets = 12% total put into my 401k?

Edit : I'm 22M, salary is 63k. No college debt, living with parents right now (so no rent for me) and will move out after COVID goes away, and I have 11k saved up so far. I'll get my first paycheck for this job tomorrow. I'm not expecting any big purchases at the moment. Should I contribute more than 6%? I'm also hoping to max out my ROTH IRA as soon as I can.

CMV: If your employer requires you to take specific classes or certifications outside normal working hours in order to start/continue working for them, you should be compensated for your time and efforts.

I work in construction in NYC, and in the last year, I've had to complete the following certifications:

-OSHA 30 Training (30 hours)

-Scaffold and Fall Protection (8 hours)

-Drug and Alcohol Awareness (2 hours)

-NY Sexual Harassment class (2 hours)

-Silica Hazard Training (1 hour)

-Coronavirus Prevention and Protection (1 hour)

That's over 40 hours of classes that I was forced to take, on my time, in my house, without any compensation whatsoever. If I don't complete all of these certifications, I am not allowed to work and I not only use employment, I lose my health insurance, and my union will not back me up because "You didn't take the classes we asked you to take". So I'm compelled to do unpaid work after working hours in order to stay employed. I don't think that's right at all.

I believe that if your employer or union is requiring you to take a class or get a certificate after normal working hours, you should be paid for that. It's your time doing a work related task;

LPT: your employer is not your friend or colleague. Your employer is your client.

A friendly reminder that your employer is not your colleague or friend. Your employer is your client. Their ultimate goal is to protect, maintain and grow as a company or as a brand. With or without you.
As an employee, you will always be dispensable.

Keep that in mind when things get sketchy at work.

Also, if you live in the US, don't trust your employer regarding unemployment benefits, because unknown to many, unemployment comes from your employer. Employers pay unemployment insurance and for every employee that gets unemployment, their insurance rate goes up (similar to a car insurance). I've never met an employer that has not appealed an unemployment benefit just because they already have lawyer's for this, against an employee with no income...
But you got to know that with proof and documentation, you can win the appeal! (IANAL but I've successfully won claims for my husband just by stating the facts with proof in a standard legal way).

CMV: It only hurts employees to NOT discuss their wages among each other and gives the employer more leverage when it comes to salary negotiations.

I can't think of any disadvantages to all the employees at a company sharing their salary info. I think it's strange that people don't want others to know their income, like it will hurt them or embarrass them if they make less than their counterparts. On the contrary it would give you more power and information if you, for example found out someone who had equal training and experience was making more than you, and you wanted to ask your boss for a raise. Edit: Assuming the quality of work you were providing is similar.

Also, it's a misinformation (or at least a lack of information) technique to keep employees docile and obedient when it comes to the discussion of getting a raise.

All to often employees forget they are worth to the company just as much as the company paycheck is worth to them. I think sometimes it may be a good reminder to the workers that they also have just as much power, all they have to do is make salary information freely available among themselves.

Employer sent out an "anonymous survey" encouraging us to go back to the office

I work for a small company and we have been working from home since the start of the pandemic.

A few days ago we were sent an "anonymous survey" (they tell us it's anonymous but anyone with half a brain knows otherwise) in regards to returning to the office. In it contained passive aggressive questions asking us how our productivity decreased working from home.

It also floated measures to us like our employer checking our temperature, and us filling out a medical form daily. The most ridiculous idea floated in the survey was us installing a contact tracing app where our employer could track us (no fucking way I'm doing that).

It seems they really want us back into the office because they signed a multi year lease with the building. Honestly I have no desire to go back and risk infection for my family. Hell, we don't even talk to each other in person!

This is a weird situation that I feel a lot of people may be running into and I'm not sure what to do. Any ideas?

Help! Employer asking me to come into work one day a week to get me off Unemployment Benefits (NY)

I worked at a Otolaryngology clinic for about 7 years. I attended school for the majority of the day on Monday's and Friday's, which left me Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday for my job. Also, I'm a single mom and sole caregiver for my child.

So like most people affected by the pandemic, I had my hours reduced starting 3/16. I went from working around 32 hours a week to 0. To compensate for the week(3/16 - 3/19), I used my vacation pay. The last day I was paid was 3/19/2020 and nothing since then. The reason they told me for my reduced hours was that they didn't have patients.

With no income, I asked my employer if I need to file for unemployment benefits. They told me no and said I should apply for Paid Family Leave and just stay home. I applied for it and on 4/1 and was told I was ineligible for PFL because my child was not diagnosed with COVID-19. With no other real options I filed for unemployment under the CARES act.

"Over two years, up to and including four years’ experience"

up to

So people with 8, 10, 15, 20 years experience probably won't get an interview let alone the job.

I know I know - the employer doesn't want to pay for the additional experience. More experienced people are supposed to apply for jobs calling for more experience. Problem is: there aren't any. Not in anywhere near the numbers to match the many more-experienced people out there looking for work.

This kind of language is classic age discrimination and before the pandemic the US government was working on legislation to deal with it.

The cherry on top is that this comes from a government (not federal) agency that definitely has a big HR department who should know better and who would have had

Hey guys, burner acct cause my coworkers browse this sub.

I’m a 20 something y/o male putting away 9% of my OWN pre-tax income towards retirement and getting a 6% contribution from my employer (401K).

I’ve currently got about $3k left in student loan debt that I’ve been paying off for the last year (since being employed), and I’ve been contributing the minimum needed to a 401K to receive a full match so as to not throw away β€œfree money”.

I was wondering - once my debt is paid off (within the next 6 months) should I increase my contributions to be 15% of my OWN income or does my {9% + 6% employer match = 15% total} count?

Obviously more is better but I would also like to save towards purchasing a home and I live and work in a HCOL area (California) where my rent is roughly 24% of my gross salary.

Employer wrote into my offer letter that after 6 months I’m due a salary review. Now that’s due they seem to be stalling. What are my options?

When I was negotiating the salary for my current position before joining, I initially pushed for a higher salary, but we ultimately arrived at something slightly lower than desired. I felt this was fine, as the position strongly aligned with my career goals and was a good next step for me.

As part of that negotiation, I was to take a slightly lower salary than I wanted, but the employer agreed to a formal salary review after being there for 6 months (this is confirmed in writing in the terms of my offer letter).

It’s now been 9 months, and since the 6 month mark I’ve been nudging my manager to get the ball rolling with this, but every time they say they’ll look into it or chase it up with senior management, nothing comes of it. I had accepted that the review might be put on hold in light of coronavirus (the 6 month mark was just a few weeks before the situation got bad in my country), but my manager throughout this time has assured me that this isn’t a problem, and the review is stil

My employer is "unlaying" me off but demoting me with FAR LESS PAY, what can I do?

My employer laid off the staff due to the covid situation. I filed for unemployment and got approved. Today I received a call from work saying that they are undoing the layoff and that I am supposed to come in to work, however I will be demoted (completely different position) with far less pay? He is telling me I HAVE NO CHOICE AND I HAVE TO WORK THE POSITION. Is this allowed? Can I refuse? Will I still get EI? This is so unfair because my pay is being cut by a 1/3 if I take the position!!!!

LPT: Employers can't make you stand around after you've punched out.

This happens a lot in restaurants. For example the MOD will make you punch out so they can do the nightly closeout, but you have to stand around and all leave together or actually still have to do sidework. Even if it's just 2 minutes or 20, they have to pay you if they require you to be there. If this is happening to you, record dates and times, take it to your states wage and labor board and get what's yours. Those 15 minutes past each shift add up. You could report it to your company, but remember HR only looks out for the company. Not you. Government agencies are there to protect you

*Disclaimer- not a lawyer. Just someone who worked close to that industry and seen it happen

EDIT: As per reddit norm, some bozos are coming out of the woodwork to add their idiotic remarks from the safety of behind their computer screen. This LPT is meant to inform those that didnt know.

What do employers want from devs? I'm so confused.

Gonna try to keep it short. I've been working as a web developer for 10 years and touched anything from frontend back when gulp was the shit, to operations and such now. I'm definitely not an expert in anything, but can go much deeper than the average "fullstacker".

Besides this I also have a decent understand of other dynamics going on in businesses, so I tend to see things other devs don't. And some problems are solved with a 5 minute conversation and not code.

One of the things I hate the most is working on something only to have fundamental requirements change after I'm done. And these are usually things that I can pick up with a quick chat with the actual client(whether internal or external) instead of through the project/product person.

However, it seems that employers just want predictable slaves and not actually devs that think for themselves. It's as if they assume they're 100% right and want me to trust everything they say blindly and just code. After 10 years I can't do t

Laid off but employers keep asking for my time/advice.

UPDATE:

I ended up not receiving that call that my previous bosses wanted me to take to talk to me. They never called! Instead, they texted about an hour before that scheduled call, asking me what the username and password was for the text service we use, and to reply ASAP, as they "need to get this figured out so we can get everything in order. It's just a mess over here. Can we schedule a time for you to come in to show us how this works?". I replied that the password can be located on the drive, and nothing more. I ignored the request to come in, as they would not be paying me (I'm sure of it). Got a simple "thank you" text back and that was that. In addition, I made up a quick list of marketing/consulting services and sent them my price list, as well as an offer to train them on the software for a certain hourly rate. I received no reply back once I sent that email, and I'm not expecting one.

Wife's employer is telling the employees that if they quit they will owe her money

Hi guys, I don't have much knowledge about what a employer can and can't do to their employee so any advice will be greatly appreciated.

My wife came home today from her job and said that the owner told everybody that if they quit then they will owe her (the owner) money. Reasoning the owner gave was because she used up everyone's vacation days (without permission) to pay the full time staff while the school was shut down for a month due to Covid-19. The owner was giving her full time staff 50% of thier normal paycheck during this shutdown instead of laying everybody off. Does anyone know if this is allowed?

Some info that may help:

  1. school is a Montessori for infants up till Pre-K
  2. located in Texas
  3. wife started this job 4 months ago

Edit: Also forgot to mention, does she qualify for unemployment? This is her first job and she's only been working full time for 4 months.

Edit: There is some confusion about whether my wife's PTO was stolen to pay full time employees. So

Why do employers create unenforceable contracts?

I'm referring to contract clauses of non-competing and non-solicitation that are overly broad and vague. You basically can't do anything right after working for them.

Then there's the "all ideas you came up with belong to us" type of clause (Do anyone know the technical name of this type of clause?) I actually quit a job because of that.

All of these contracts are not enforceable in most jurisdictions, why make them at all? Do they just have really bad legal consultants or are they counting on the employees' ignorance of the law so they behave just as the contract says?

Wife's new employer expects staff to work extra hours "out of the goodness of their heart." [ON]

Not sure if it is appropriate to post this here, but my wife just started a new job working for a very well-known company. Her department is non-unionized, and she is not in a management position. She has been working there for less than a month and her manager has been sending her emails after her normal working hours asking her to do extra work. The manager says that he "warned her" during the interview process that there could be long hours. My issue is that they said she shouldn't bother tracking her hours as staff are not paid overtime. I've read the ESA a few times, and I don't believe her position is exempt from the overtime provisions of the ESA.

She's making good money at this job and is on probation for the first 3 months. I don't want her to do or say anything to risk her employment, but I'm also pretty sure that what the company is expecting her to do is violating her rights under the ESA. Am I right on this?

HSBC, one of Buffalo's largest employers, is currently undermining democracy in Hong Kong.

Yesterday, the leaders of HSBC announced their public support for China's 2019 Hong Kong Extradition Bill. If you aren't familiar with the situation, this law essentially gives China power to capture Hong Konger's and put them to trial on the mainland. The bill is a huge danger to Hong Kong's democratic way of life that was supposed to be upheld until at least 2047.

Should we be okay with one of our largest institutions (10th largest employer) blatantly selling out democracy for profit? Buffalo has always been a community that comes together to stand up for what is right.

Source: https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/04/business/hsbc-standard-chartered-hong-kong-law-intl-hnk/index.html

Daniel Andrews will fine employers who force staff back to work in breach of work-from-home orders

More national leadership from Andrews. Public transport trips are up ~20% this week. The power to fine employers who force workers back to workplaces just so they can keep an eye on them is good. If you can work from home, your boss can't make you go to work yet. The gradual easing of restrictions is common sense.

Personally I have to go back to work next week, one hour on public transport each way, and the less people onboard who don't need to be there, the better.

Tons of employers who are 100% able to offer remote work will be bringing employees back into offices ASAP

I’m seeing reopening targets for white collar offices ranging from as far in the future as September, to as soon as ASAP in June, and I gotta think one of the primary determinants is just the whims and temperament of the management, some of whom are just hard ass types who don’t like tipping their hand towards the fact that they could essentially flip a switch to 100% remote work overnight with almost no opportunity cost.

I feel like every time someone who can stay home does so, everyone benefits, even as we start to reopen and others who don’t have a choice begin to go back to work. Having thousands of workers frivolously summoned back to their offices and circulating around the city when they don’t have to seem like just throwing extra vectors for potential spread for no real reason.

To be clear, I’m not saying let’s not proceed into reopening, as we clearly need to take the first steps into it eventually. This isn’t a rant about those who need to choose between going into work or

I don't have many shares and want to sell, but now they are requesting I tell them the shares I have (they don't know if I have any yet) and to transfer the shares to their broker if I want to sell.

My question is can I just sell without them knowing. I know they have requesed account closure statements from other employees.l before too. Could they find out if I traded or not? The only information they have is which broker my account is with and the account number.

Browsing this sub reminded me of something that happened to me 12 years ago when I was a naive 20 year old desperate for a job. I went to the mall near where I lived and spent hours filling out applications at every single store. I took a break to go to the food court and noticed a small kiosk offering on-site 15 minute teeth whitening procedures. I thought "what the hell" and walked up to the kiosk to ask if they were hiring. They said "yes" suspiciously enthusiastically, hired me on the spot, and asked me to come in the following morning for my first day. When I arrived, I asked if there was any new-hire paperwork I needed to fill out or if they needed my SSN or ID. He waved me off and said we could take care of it later. He instructed me to essentially chase down anyone who came near the kiosk to pressure them into getting a procedure. This made me extremely uncomfortable, but I put in a full 8 hours and then he told me to come in tomorrow and we would get everything officia

Good employers do exist!

I consider myself blessed to be where I'm at today. Being homeschooled with no professional IT experience or further education, I connected with a local credit union who thought I was worth investing in. I had an assortment of personal IT experience (most web development stuff), and they offered me a helpdesk position. Fast forward a year and a half, and I've learned SO much from my team (who are all super cool and great to work with, including my supervisor). The rest of the users are all super friendly and understanding of the role of IT within the company (with occasional exceptions, of course). The credit union offered me an Information Security Analyst position 6 months in, and they're helping me go to college for software development.

4.5 months pregnant and a new grad. How to tell potential employers.

Hey all. I’ve been losing sleep over this. I know it is illegal to discriminate against a woman because she is pregnant, and employers will find another excuse to not hire a woman once they find out. As my title says, I am a new grad searching for jobs, waiting for my state license. I have been arguing with myself about when or if to tell potential employers I am pregnant. One employer who seems interested in me and has set up a second interview with me says they have a 3-4 month credentialing period. If they happen to choose me, say at the end of June, that would place me at 8-9 months pregnant when credentialing is finally finished. Just about the time I am due to give birth and be home with my child for ~3 months. Has anyone else dealt with anything like this? What did you do? What did you say to potential employers?

I always did this with respect (which he honestly did not deserve) and substantiated any claims or counter ideas properly. He obviously hated my guts, but over the years it had become somewhat of an unspoken rule that he would dick around with new ideas but nobody would implement anything before I or someone else senior in the team had a chance to fix his stupidity.
