    Background Checks for Graduate jobs after Dismissal

    Found this forum and I hope this is a good place to ask for some advice on my situation! First of all I just want to say that I accept my mistakes and I do not want to downplay them at all. I was recently dismissed from my finance company job for emailing sensitive data to my personal email...

    Trialling a four day working week

    Hi all, I'm in a fortunate position in that I've convinced my managing director to trial a 4-day working week, starting next year. It's based on 100% pay for 85% working hours (32-hour week) and, most importantly, retaining 100% productivity. The trial will be for 3-months initially, extending...

    Hi Overclockers I'm working from home and will be for at least a few months. I'm in need of a new good, comfortable office/gaming chair. I currently have a stool and my back is starting to hate me. Years of recklessness and delivery driving have destroyed my spine and I feel myself arching...

    Is this bullying?

    One of my (24f) colleagues at work (25m) is being very unfriendly at work and it's starting to get to me but I don't know whether it counts as bullying or not. Some of the things he does: 1) Ignores me, pulls faces and moves away from me when I speak to him. 2) Calls me a b**ch and continues to...

    Job satisfaction

    Do you think that job satisfaction is more important than money? Why/why not? You would rather work in a job which you love or in well-paid one which is stressful, you don't have much time but you are loaded?
