my employee asked me to be a job reference, interpersonal issues and HR, and more

Ask A Manager

My employee told me they loved their current job but it was a good opportunity worth looking at.

Ask A Manager

I have been working at my current job for about eight months. Sadly, I am starting to lose control and cannot break this habit and feel the only way to do so is either go to treatment (have to figure out a way since I opted out of health insurance so I can have more money in my paycheck) or detox at home.
