  • Can what you wear to an interview affect if u get the job or not?

    Best answer: Absolutely. I help interview people at my store and the very first thing we look at is what the person wears. We don’t base our decision entirely off of what you wear, but if you come dressed up it gives us the impression that you care if you get the job and that you are able to be professional.

I automatically think someone who comes in wearing regular street clothes is going to be a lazy employee who doesn’t care.

    Best answer: Only theaten to leave if you have another job lined up or if you have enough money saved to last you a few months.
    We live in a capitalist system. It’s up to all of us to look out for our own best interests and get the best value for our time and money. Won’t your customers shop elsewhere if they don’t get a good price from your store? Wouldn’t your store switch vendors if they got a better deal on the supply side? Why do you have to play the loser? Rise. Claim what you are owed or go. And if you don’t have enough skills to get a better job - invest in your self and get them. Maybe it might mean biding your time for a while before you get certified in what ever - but you do it and then you give your notice with 2 weeks and don’t look back. An employer is supposed to work to retain good employees. If they don’t - they are failing to adapt in our capitalist system. Sears is about to close. They didn’t adapt. Don’t be like sears.

I really want this job so I don't really want to leave a bad impression with the employer. If my symptom get worse and I have to reschedule it, would that reflect negatively on me? I don't want my employer thinking that I am faking for any reason.

    I work in a very small tense office, with 5 other women. One of the other women has been micromanaging, bossing me around, telling me what to do, I find her quite patronising. One day, I got really upset- my manager didn’t really do much, sent me on my way to the doctors, I got put on antidepressants and referred to occupational health and that was the end of it. Anyway, I get on well with another girl in the office and we are quite chatty about our feelings towards her. Whenever she walks out of the room, we talk about how tense we are feeling as her mood always changes or how snappy she is being.... a lot of the time it’s how the atmosphere is shocking. Yesterday, the girl over heard us? I said ‘have I done something wrong?’ And my colleague said ‘no, not at all... maybe she’s hormonal don’t take it personally’ and I said ‘well I feel like I have bexause yesterday when my doctors were calling me she was telling me to pick up the phone and I said I couldnt’ my colleague then said ‘well it’s ok for her to wait for a dog kennel... don’t worry about it’ She ran to management and HR quoting everything we have said, so we were pulled in for a meeting. I don’t think this is quite fair, I have raised my feelings before and got put on medication and management didn’t raise it further. But as soon as she runs, we get pulled in formally. I’d like opinions!
