  • Do they ask for social security card on job interview?..asap!?

    I called a job about my interview. And the manger asks me to come in to get a copy of my I.D and social security card. Why might they ask for this? And I also didn't have to sign any paperwork either.

  • Is this bad enough to report?

    Will just jump into it: I looked at a coworker's phone... Invaded his privacy, yes... I've done this a few times before and I have picked up others' phones and they have mine... In his case, last time I looked at it, not picked it up, and told him what a text from his wife said and he said,... show more
    Will just jump into it: I looked at a coworker's phone... Invaded his privacy, yes... I've done this a few times before and I have picked up others' phones and they have mine... In his case, last time I looked at it, not picked it up, and told him what a text from his wife said and he said, "thanks." This time, his wife said something not meant for my eyes. I did NOT pick up his phone, it was laying in plain sight and the text was right there. I realized I was wrong... I told him... My apology was met with "you don't know boundaries!!!" etc... It seems I don't know right from wrong... He seemed to calm down in next few minutes, and I thought we were okay and I asked (maybe stupid), how he and his wife met. "None of your damn business" was the answer, "stop asking personal questions!" I got a lil mad, too, now... I let this marinate, and then said "you got me to realize how "personal" depends on the individual..." Now he came up to me and said, "you are making me VERY mad!! So mad, that... that I Could..." then he stormed off... Besides that I don't know when to shut my big mouth, which is true... Was this a threat? I have gotten on ppl's nerves in the past, NOTHING this bad has ever happened, though... Should I report this?

  • Do jobs check employment history?

    Best answer: Yes. But not at a job fair. And working at Dominos one week and quitting is not a reason to decide against hiring you. In some companies if you tell them you quit Dominos after a week, they will say "well I wonder that you lasted that long!" Do not over think this. If someone asks why you quit after... show more
    Best answer: Yes. But not at a job fair.
    And working at Dominos one week and quitting is not a reason to decide against hiring you.

    In some companies if you tell them you quit Dominos after a week, they will say "well I wonder that you lasted that long!"

    Do not over think this. If someone asks why you quit after a week just say "they over scheduled and there were no hours for me to work."

    Chances are that no one there will remember you anyway.

    Chances are that...the person in charge of reviewing the applications is a person like me..and they will NOT call Dominos for a reference because they are difficult if not impossible to deal with and I (at least) will not waste my time unless I am calling on a person who was at least a full time store manager for over 2 years.

    No one with a brain who checks job references wants to talk to Dominoes employment department

I wanted to ask my manager if it would be okay if left an hour or an an hour and a half earlier so i can go to my dads birthday dinner. I was wondering how many days notice i should give for this? Is this a big request in retail or is ok to ask only a few days in advance? I would still work a good 6 or 7 hours that day, and i am not the only person who will be there at closing time so they will have someone else there. Thanks for any advice/insight you can give me

    I m doing Co-op with a friend at the same company. But something really weird is happening. The supervisor never looks at me when he s talking to us. When I ask him a question he looks at only my friend to answer MY question. If he s explaining something to us he makes an effort to turn his head and body to look at my friend standing behind his chair even though I m standing right beside him (the space where he explains things allows one person to stand beside his chair, and one person behind). When he s giving us instructions, he only looks at my friend as if I m not there and it makes me confused if I m supposed to do the task too or not. Did I do something to offend the supervisor? I just feel that I m not getting as good of a learning experience as my friend, after all isn t that what co-op is all about? Been trying to ignore it, but it s starting to get to me. Just wondering if anyone else has gone through a similar experience? How did you deal with it?

    As a young person building myself and my career and skills, I am scared that some of the events I heard from stories will begin to happen to me, and that is sexual harassment at work. I'm scared of a fellow worker (that has connections with any of the authrities), my boss or someone in a superior position, a client, a customer or any other business contact supervisor, anyone who coule demand that I should do any of sexual acts (from a kiss to sex) as a condition of getting or keeping my job or job benefit, including promotions and raises. I am 21 y.o. single woman and I am definetely planning to stay single until I build myself and my career, and I don't want to lose my dignity by being conditioned with those things to progress in my career, which is something that normally happens here. I don't want to be held back in my own career or be made an office outsider. I know ther is HR, and that reporting these kind of these could help, but what if their involvement wouldn't be helpful, as a matter of fact what if it would be unfavourable (considering if someone is my superior they will probably have connections that have connections, knowing that's how it usually goes in this country)? I want to know how can I protect myself from these kind of offers so that they don't even happen, and also how can I protect myself even when I find myself in them. Heck, I'd even lie I'm married even though I despise lying.
