Evil HR Lady

It’s easier to get a new job when you already have a job. We all intuitively know this to be true, but why is that the case? If you ask recruiters and hiring managers why they don’t hire individuals who are unemployed when they apply for a role, it’s usually because they’re basing their decision on some preconceived notions and biases: If you’ve been fired from one job, there must be something wrong with you.

my coworker saw the Excel sheet I use to track his sick days

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: I made a mistake and a coworker saw the Excel sheet that I was using to track his repeated absences. I’m not his supervisor, but I’ve been flabbergasted at the amount of sick days he takes. It started immediately when I started working here 14 months ago, but I started tracking it in January to see how many he takes in 2019.

how to run a tiny business that isn’t an iceberg of dysfunction

Ask A Manager

It’s the Thursday “ask the readers” question. A reader writes: I was really interested by the recent discussion in the comments on your post about the small business owner who gave his “best bud” as a reference, and how very small businesses can be Icebergs of Dysfunction.
