    I've had a paycheck bounce years ago in my early 20's. Not a fun experience. Hope it all works out!

    Yeah, being an adult who can manage a professional and personal life is a total drag. Better to just pick that d and get them bouncin' paychecks.

    Not at the same time, but it's the same process. Sit across from a complete stranger and try to convince them of how awesome you are, while they try to do the same. Trying to appear upbeat and happy for hours and hours at a time, it's enough to make me want to stab people and I am usually a pretty happy person.

    I just talked to the bosses and they told me not to worry, there is financing coming and my job and paycheck are safe. It helps that my coworker is the owner's son and my landlord so even if I lost my job, I wouldn't have to worry about being homeless.

    I don't think they would lie to me. They honestly don't really need me here, but they want to keep me around for when things start to pick up after the financing goes through. It would be in their best interest to make me part time or lay me off and not have to pay me what they do and pay for my phone, insurance and gas. So I believe them.

    I am also pretty marketable and have a great reputation in my industry. So as much as I hate interviewing, I don't worry about finding a new job quickly. I am going to stick it out for a bit just because I really don't want to have to start this whole process over again. I finally found a good fit, even though they are going through a bit of financial strain. With all the hits that the construction industry took, it's only natural that it's going to take a bit for things to bounce back.

    (yes tom, I am a little too trusting of what other people tell me)

    The financing is suppose to come through in 2 weeks, I am going to try to hold out until then. They just got paid a big chunk from the home builder we do most of our work for and got current with the vendors. I am a lot more comfortable than I was yesterday. It doesn't help that the home builders know the little subcontractors are hurting and can dick them around on payments.

    Read today on a candidate resume:

    Estblashed and maitained the Sharepoint exploreation environments (SP 2007 server and SP 2010 Server)
    Piloted the legency Travel system reengerring using SharePoint 2010 and InfoPath 2010

    This person also writes that he has a Doctorate Degree and 2 Masters degrees. Does this disqualify him for spellcheck?

    Yes, if you can't figure out what the wiggly red line is under a word in your resume, that's a pretty bad sign.

    Lol. Did you check to see where he got his degrees from?

    A former coworker heard about an opening we have at my current place of employment. I declined her the opportunity to interview. She sent me an very nice thank you email, and at the end of it, she said "You are a very nice person. Thank you so much. Love you."

    HOWEVER, I know we're looking to expand this summer. Not sure what positions would be available that you would qualify for, but I'll keep an eye out (unless you actually do have an engineering or accounting degree?)

    Sometimes I stare at emails for minutes upon minutes on end, just baffled.

    I have a question because I am confused.

    Your site says "The Official Bank Letter must be a minimum of $34,500."

    So do I need to have a bank letter that shows a minimum of $34,500?

    Sure, but immediately below that on our site we state what to do if it isn't you (I) with the bank statement. Further correspondence suggests that that isn't what they were confused about. 4 emails confirming that yes, the bank statement needs to show at least $34,500.

    This person has rejected an offer from us twice. Not sure why the company decided to give her a third offer. Each time an offer was given to her, a benefits packet was sent out with it.
    Today, I sent out one email to her with some new hire paperwork (and also mailed out ANOTHER benefits packet that she'll receive on Thursday). Within 1 hour, I already received 4 emails from her asking for either information that she should have already received twice and will get again or asking for certain exceptions in regards to how she receives her pay.

    Also, i wish people wouldn't take conference calls at their desk if they are going to be especially talkative. It's cool if you just have an occasional comment, but this girl seems to be leading the fuckin call.
