Translation: We’re running out of people willing to work for subpar wages, crappy benefits and long hours. So, we’ll hire more gullible, less life experienced teenagers who don’t know better yet!

I accidentally found a unicorn job?


A few months ago I was laid off and was looking for a new job. I interviewed with a company a while back and they asked me how much I wanted for pay and I told them $30 but was looking for $27-30 (last job paid $24 and was on the lower side). To my absolute shock they said they would give me $35. To say I was blown away is an understatement. I have never had an employer want to pay the amount I asked for let alone more than I wanted.

I've been working here for 2 months and the work culture here is fantastic and management is super nice and supportive.

Edit: hopefully this answers questions.

  1. I have a CAD background. 4 years of work experience and half an associates degree.

  2. I'm an eletrical distribution designer in Minnesota.

  3. They are still hiring so if you are interested and have relevant experience PM me and I would be happy to get you in touch with the hiring managers.

Job description provides salary between $90k and $110k but interview manager is flabbergasted when I asked for $100k


Companies nowadays are a joke. I recently applied for a account executive job with a job description that offers salary between $90k and $110k and when asked about salary expectations in the interview I give them a medium the hiring manager acts surprised with my offer even when my credentials are outstanding. I did this because I know these idiots aren’t going to stick to their word, as almost 90% of these companies lie in their description, and I’m hoping for one that actually has a moral compass.

There is absolutely no merit in being an honest job seeker. Companies are lying in their job descriptions, and their hiring personnel act like people who apply should never see that money they posted and lied about. I don’t see a reason not to lie about your credentials when all they do is lie about the jobs they post.

Edit: To answer some questions and comments for some of you fair folk.

Some of you mentioned that AE starts at $45$-65k + Commish and that’s what I got wrong. That’s inaccurate. The job description says: $90k-$110 + commission + benefits. And “$90k-$110 DOE.”

I also followed up with the recruiter and asked where we are with the next steps, she said ”the hiring manager is out office this week”. Yeah right, haven’t heard a peep in two weeks.

I never mentioned the job description to them because I thought they were honest. I was obviously wrong, and what would me mentioning this change with my possible manager? For him to act like I offended him, I’m wasting my breath calling him out.

Edit 2 Many asking why I didn’t mention the job description to him. As I said above, I was trusting them to know. I can’t help a company, company themselves, if you know what I mean. It was a mistake on my end, and many highly intelligent people have suggested to bring your job description with you. Please learn from my mistake.

Many asking to call them out and I won’t do that. I was just ranting about my incident with them and sharing it with you all, did not know so many had the same experience and am glad we could learn new things together.

Some asking about my experience. Let’s just say what they described they were looking for, I had over 7 years more.

Why I didn’t ask for 120k? Because I’m the head of the Department of the Silly Goose Club.

Job I interviewed for called my CURRENT boss to ask about me


I had an interview for a job a few weeks back and suddenly my current boss pulls me aside and asks me about this company I was interviewing for. I was flabbergasted. I told no one that I was even looking for another job. My current boss told me that someone from this other company called him to ask about me and my credentials. This new company knew I was still working at my current company, I have it stated in plain sight on my resume. Now everyone, including my boss, knows that I’m looking for a new job. Just great.

I didn’t get the job either.

I just quit my job on the first day


I feel so bad, I had no idea what to do. I just left a note for the manager saying I quit and signed my name.

They said my first day I'd get a name tag, watch training videos, and shadow someone. But instead I was just thrown on the floor and greet people. Then when it was my lunch break they didn't tell me how to clock out so I asked someone who was in the break room and she didn't know either because you need a specific employee code that they give you. I never got one. She said to just write a note so instead I left a note saying I quit.

All of this just for $10 an hour. I've worked previous jobs that actually trained me and paid more. I'm not sure if anyone will even see my note but I left my walkie on the table and took my stuff and went home. I feel sick.

Edit: Thank you so much everyone for the kind words and stories, definitely helped me feel a lot better about what happened :)

Edit 2: Wow this has gotten crazy, I wasn't expecting this! Some people seem confused so here's a bit of context, I did NOT apply to be a greeter. My job description was working at the register which I was told I would be working there another day, I wasn't told what day either. Yes it was a retail store at a mall and yes I knew $10 was not a lot of money. On the bright side, I have a couple interviews coming up and I hope I'll find a better job. Again, I appreciate all the kind words and I hope everyone has a good day! ❤️

Becoming wealthy makes us conservative?


An article by The Guardian says millennials and Gen Z are getting more conservative with age and the sentiment in the comment section is because we aren't wealthy like they are. So that's it? You give a generation wealth and then they'll side with the owning class and want to dismantle unions, and affordable healthcare and privatize everything for short term gain? Is that where we are as a society,"I got mine, fuck the future?"
