  • Week 10: Labor Unions option

    I know somebody who is a part of a union and I mainly hear the negatives about it. They talk about how somebody could be unethical in their job or make a decision that could cause them to be fired, but since they are apart of the union that they get away with it. I […]

  • Week 9: Importance of Workplace Health and Safety Issues

    According to my Holmes-Rahe Life Stress Inventory test score, I have a relatively low amount of life changes so I there is a low susceptibility to a stress-induced breakdown. I still have times when I do get stressed about things and the coping and stress management test is a great way to understand how I […]

Each was so different in the way the interview was conducted. The catering interview was very informal; it was outside in the stadium next to a […]

  • My Experience Overcoming the Challenges of Changing Job Descriptions

    I have come to realize that I really value when a company has clear expectations for their employees that are communicated in a clear way and also offer guidance and suggestions for improvement along the way.
