can my husband be fired for my social media posts, letting a no-call no show return to work, and more

Ask A Manager

The job has had its ups and downs, but the last two weeks have really made me question myself as a manager, and as a person.

However, there were visa issues and I ended up spending the first year across five different countries — each time not knowing the end date for my stationing. The company does not help with housing.

Ask A Manager

Should I push my job-searching friend to tell me what’s holding her back? A good friend of mine was let go from her job (one in her field that she’s had since we graduated college, also located in our college town) in March. She and her husband have since moved down … and she still has not been able to find a job in her field.

I’m caught in the middle of an investigation at work

Ask A Manager

Twice in past jobs I have been pulled in as a “witness” to things that have happened both in and out of the workplace, and in both cases at least one person in question lost their job. “Bullying” in particular is a serious buzzword and despite being new I have never seen anything indicating that this type of behavior is normal for them or that either would be considered a bully.

updates: the sick leave pressure, the overload of vacation time, and more

Ask A Manager

Based on the advice I’d been given, I decided to knuckle down and focus on getting another job – any other job. I know a lot of people suggested I contact Citizen’s Advice, but I was honestly (and still am) a little wary of doing that, as my father has dealt with them in the past regarding a job issue that was a lot more clear cut and wrong, in my opinion, and that didn’t go well for him.

For now, I’m happy to have many opportunities to develop professionally, and I’m looking forward to new challenges in 2019! It’s “where are you now?”

how can I get my coworkers to chip in for snacks, everyone but me is going on a business trip, and more

Ask A Manager

I’m negotiating for the proper budget now, but that won’t take effect until 2019, if my negotiations are successful. Should I accept a job where people keep stressing I’d need to be open to “constructive criticism”? I was recently offered a new job that seems like a great fit in my field.

my coworker is blaming someone else for an anonymous complaint I made, dress code changes, and more

my friend doesn’t understand work, my coworker sent me unsolicited advice about quitting gracefully, and more

Ask A Manager

I have a friend who just started his first job (ever, never worked a part-time job) after graduating undergrad. And “Hey, are you still counting on this job for letters of recommendation? But your friend sounds tremendously immature, and someone did him a disservice by not requiring to have a job before now (or at least preparing him for how work works). I gave my three weeks notice at my current job yesterday, and things have already gotten weird!
