Ask A Manager

A reader writes: I applied for a job on Craigslist online three weeks ago. I was called to come in for an interview and learned it had been posted by a temp agency.

my remote team isn’t responsive, my managers joke about not hiring women who might get pregnant, and more

This letter isn’t really about a bonus at all.

Is this your first time here?
