Employers like to sugarcoat a lot of things. As a matter of fact, a majority of them would make great con artists.
Try applying for independent businesses (or less known places) where the managers are real.
No joke, they really would. My uncle used to be friends with a store manager of this grocery store franchise, and apparently he was really conniving and almost ruthless when it came to the ins and outs of the money the store made.
I agree, totally go for the smaller or more independantly run places where everyone is less about mind games.
These bigger companies aren't supposed to judge, but they do. Subway is a prime example. Most places hire based off personality rather than work ethic. You can't even have both, you're just supposed to be some dumbed down zombie who's happy for no reason all the time.
My bosses at my last job just kept putting so much pressure on me and stuff, I really wasn't the right person for the job and what they needed. I would probably not go back and work at a place like that again.
Well I mean they have to hire based on several things. It is not really about work ethic because if you don't have the personality to deal with people or at least to have chemistry with your co-workers then they wouldn't hire you. Speaking of which I better leave for work.
Doesn't matter. Any position for a big company (even one that doesn't require customer interaction, like working nights and being on the stocking crew) requires personality over work ethic. It's ridiculous and nonsensical.
I'm displeased with it as well.
If anything, it should only be a ONE time fee. Console and handheld gaming are starting to turn into mobile gaming where you have to PAY to unlock or use certain features.
This disturbs me.
I'm a penny pincher, don't judge.
Wait. Wait, you guys. I need to pay now for PokeTransfer? Why should it cost anything in the first place?
Oh man these chills, it's the chills only EA and micro-transactions bring.
