  • A recruiting company wants to add five years of (fake) experience to my resume?

    I recently graduated, and a recruiting/consulting company that I recently began speaking with wants to train me for several weeks, and then state on my resume that I have had five years of work experience (I have zero years). Is this heard of, common, ethical, and/or legal?

Where can I find one?

    Best answer: There's mostly female staff that pick orders in the ware house that I work for.
    Look for equal opportunity employers, that means you should get equal pay and benefits if you're full time.
    Do your job, try not to make too many mistakes. Once you gain some experience you can apply for other jobs and you should get raises when you get your performance reviews on the anniversary of your hire date. Some ware houses have better opportunities for moving up then others.
    Better paying jobs usually belong to supervisors or managers, unless you have experience as a manager or if you have a few years of leadership experience you're not likely to get those jobs any time soon. So be prepared to be in the same position for a few years before they even consider you for a supervisor position.

    and I left because the job was commission based with no guaranteed salary, no pay the first week and we had to pay our own travel costs not to work but to the places the boss sent us (and I have to keep begging family members for help with money which i feel VERY bad about), is it worth noting down 3 days experience at this place that I resigned from if I wanted a job in sales? Also someone said I wouldn't get a job in sales with no experience...but i haven't found any place that gives you work experience in sales specifically (I have experience in things like handing out flyers and a couple other things) and a lot of online vacancies do not even ask for experience but more that i am GCSE level (i went to college and uni although didn't finish uni). I did get another couple sales offers but one was just another commission based salary thing which doesn't work out for someone like me with no money to start with, the other one was too far off in a place I was unfamiliar with and I couldn't track down the exact location in time but the thing that put me off is they wanted my personal details with bank details over email and i just did not feel comfortable with this. If you saw my CV you'd see a big section with my education (I have several diplomas) and a work experience section with 3 different work experiences that lasted one day each. I'm just worried I won't find a job in the next month?

  • What the hell am I going to do?

    Best answer: Keep advertising your skills to employers. Perhaps you need to broaden your job search. Some employer out there is bound to give you a chance.

    I work at a drug store chain. You would know it if you heard the name. A few weeks ago we hired a seasonal night cashier. He s an older man (40s at least). Last night it slowed down, and he was ringing and I was refilling the batteries. An older cop came in and he starts checking him out. The they had a conversation that wen tlike this: COP: How ve you been? SCOTT: Okay. COP: How are your parents? SCOTT: They ve both passed away. COP: Sorry to hear this. SCOTT: No answer. COP: So will you be at the 25th reunion in June. SCOTT: No. COP: No? Why not? SCOTT: I don t want to. COP: Why is that? SCOTT: I don t think I need to explain myself to you. COP: Sorry you feel that way. If you change your mind, we have a Facebook page... SCOTT: Thanks. I have other customers to ring out. So the cop left, and the next lady said, "You were rude to that police officer." He said, "I m sorry you feel that way." So I don t know if the lady or the cop will complain, but he was not rude. But here they push customer service. Like we have to walk the customer to the item if they ask where something is. I don t think he s going to get fired this close to Christmas, but I d hate him to get in to trouble. But I kind of thought the cop was out of line here not Scott. I mean chatting with people you know is okay, but I m guessing they went to school but weren t friends.
