    Apparently they are giving me 5 working days off during the summer for my vacation. Everybody else got 10 (or 14 days), but I got half of it because I started working on February 14th. They don't even know how to calculate the days, yet they tried to lecture me today how I'm supposed to have 5. They are so ignorant they fail to realize I already have rights to use 5 days even at this point, let alone in August. I'm afraid to go to the work tomorrow because knowing my big mouth I'll set the whole building on fire. $#@!ing retards. And that's not the whole story. Apparently, well, when I use those 5 days, the next vacation I'll get is next year in August. Nothing before that.
    Pirlo has no equal in Europe, Vidal is a champion. And Marchisio, though little noticed, when he is one hundred per cent [he too] is a champion.

    That doesn't sound right, it's a certain amount of days per year, you can take them whenever.

    I get 10 days too and I've been told not to take them all at once after I used them to go to Albania last summer.

    This is what I'm thinking as well, trying to get a good salary while I can, since my company doesn't seem to value my department much so there's little chance of lateral movement.

I had a meeting with a career counselor at the school and she, upon hearing this, tried to recommend to me retail management

    Within six weeks after graduating I had received two job offers (one which is my current job) that were far better than anything I had expected to receive. Basically I waited until the last minute but then as soon as I graduated I worked for several days straight to make the most out of my resume than I applied to every single job that was possible day and night. I picked supply chain as a field (my degree was in finance) and just resume spammed like a mother $#@!er. I went to job sites like glassdoor and indeed and I searched over city and government job websites, hospitals etc basically things I imagined would have possible openings in supply chain and would require a lot of employees.

    Went to a bunch of interviews, talked to job placement experts etc most of it turned out to bs. In fact I ended up with a few interviews that within seconds were obvious pyramid schemes. Even when its complete $#@! you gain experience, confidence and some funny stories for your friends.

    Basically I learned two things. First tap your friends, family, drunk strangers you meet at bars or parties hard. Not only the opportunities they have but the ones they know about, their friends have, theyve heard about, everything. Get social, even if its not your thing

    Two, apply to every single online job you would be remotely interested in taking regardless of whether you meet the qualifications or not. Just get on your computer and stay up all night spamming applications.

    it's a lot like early days of trying to get laid. Stop being shy or worrying about a rejection, take your pants off and run through the streets and eventually someone, with a hole to fill, is gonna like what they see.

    lol sounds very similar to my experience. love the pyramid scheme ones tho. especially when they make it sound nothing like it in the job application, you walk in and a 20 year old in an ill fitting cheap suit tells you he's the CEO of the company and you can make a $#@!load of money if you work hard.

    "account manager"

    - - - Updated - - -

    I'll even tell you guys one of my stories. So I went to one of these "account manager" positions (it was early in my application days and I was happy just to get an interview) I dressed up well, brought my resume and was as prepared as I thought I could be. Once I got there I noticed I had coffee breath so I took two pieces of gum and started chewing outside the building waiting for the scheduled time. Once it became I took the elevator up and met with a woman outside the suite door who told me they would have me in shortly. I didn't want to be chewing gum on the way in so I took out my gum but there was no trash can. I couldn't just throw it on the ground (bitch was standing there) so I subtly put it in the pocket of my pants. Once they opened the door for me I entered and approached the receptionist.

    Situation was immediately weird, everyone in office looked in their 20s and the receptionist was blaring loud EDM music out of her computer (wtf?) Anyway the receptionist was this super hot (very casually dressed) asian girl who gave me the eye and a form and clipboard to fill out and attach my resume. I sat down in a waiting room, pulled my resume from my pocket and then put the forms on top to fill them out. The forms started off with basic information before it got weird (describe your personality, rate yourself in these situations, stupid $#@! etc) but then when I attempted to turn the page I noticed they were stuck together. When i pulled them apart it tore. There was this sticky blue stuff on it and suddenly I noticed there was a bunch of it on my pant let too and I realized that when I stuffed my used gum in my pocket it got all over my resume which then stuck to the papers and somehow globbed all over the clipboard.

    I quickly put that $#@! down, said I had to go to the bathroom ditched the $#@! out of there and got on the highway out of hayward. As I'm leaving hayward I get several calls from this business (dont pickup) then several pages of text messages telling me that I had created a health hazard, that nobody at the company could touch it and I would have to come back to throw out the contaminated materials (clipboard, forms, chair) and compensate them for such or else they would contact "an authority" and I was liable for health hazard etc.

    $#@!ing lol. I told this story and my friends called me Costanza for a month.

    Whats wrong with companies where everyones in their 20ies? As long as they dont interfere with your personal life much and every team building is not getting $#@!faced, I'd say a young office is the best office

    Depends on the industry. There’s nothing wrong with 29 year olds but if that’s all you have, you probably have high turnover or low wages, etc. if it’s a software company, then fine.

    She's doing fine. Her company is 2 years old and they've been profitable since launch. They have like 30 something recurrent clients iirc.

    They (she and her partners) could be doing a lot better but they mismanaged the company for a good while. Only now they're trying to.escale the business.

    I know someone else who owns an agency and they're making big phat bucks. All his employees work from home. Every now and then he takes them to a cabin in the woods as some form of spiritual retreat (they actually do psychedelics and weed lol).

    He has to be careful the ayahuasca doesn't cause their ego deaths and they decide to $#@! off of capitalism, quit the job and remain in the woods to live

    But yeah, so far it seems like it could be useful
