employee clique is causing problems, employer will pay me more if I work as a contractor, and more

Ask a Manager

Employer will pay me more if I work as a contractor. I was recently extended a job offer at $58k. I replied that I was hoping the salary would be more in line with something in the $62-$65k range. The employer responded that the salaries were not negotiable but that if I was willing to waive my benefits, they would have some wiggle room. I graduate with my MS in December and will be looking for full-time jobs starting in the next month or so.

The Frightening Fact New Grads Should Know Before Entering The Workforce

Career Realism

If you’re not familiar with what a contract job is, it’s a job that typically has a defined start and end date, and by ‘end date,’ I mean the date you will be laid off and lose your job. Contract jobs are detrimental because they typically have no benefits whatsoever.

my boss makes me wear her clothes, eat her food, and say I’m grateful for my job

Ask a Manager

I’m in my mid-20s and this my first professional job after completing grad school. But one problem I haven’t figured out how to deal with is her expectation that I be more grateful for the job. She constantly remarks things like “this is such a good job,” “I give you such great pay/hours,” “You kids don’t appreciate how good I am to you,” and “No other job would treat you this well.” How do I best approach this with her while assuring her I’m grateful for the job?

my coworker closed her trunk on my arm and didn’t apologize, hiring family, and more

Ask a Manager

I work as a runner for a law firm, so a good portion of my job involves making deliveries and such. It did hurt a lot, and while I’m not the kind of person to whine over every little scratch (hence why I just ignored it until our job was complete) an apology would have been nice. I am job searching. Many jobs ask me to apply with my “desired salary” (which at least is better than salary history).

Ask A Manager

If you don’t get that job, at that point you can mention that you’re interested in the more junior position — but if you mention while you’re being interviewed for the more senior role, you risk making yourself look like you’re not confident in your own skills. They’re giving you a second interview — they think you’re a viable candidate for this job, and so you should too. Can I reopen salary negotiations after starting work?

I promised to stay for a year but want to leave now, using my own personal computer at work, and more

Ask a Manager

Back in January, my boss somehow found out I was looking for another job and sat me down. He wanted to know the salary they’d have to pay me so I would promise to stay for another year and stop looking. The job is good, but I definitely don’t get paid enough for all the stress and the commute is hell. Would working at a for-profit university hurt my future job search? I have a question about university jobs.
