First Signs That You Should Not Take That Job

First Signs You Should Not Accept That Job Sorry l'm latelcouldn't Sign 1 find the meeting room! I asked reception but Everyone is new but the business is not. High staff turnover is always they weren't sure either I thought this was as they are new as well. the waiting room? Luckily I bumped into the cleaner. a worrying sign. Sign 2 This is the wrong meeting room! Brenda can't do anything right! You will find out this place is full of buffoons. Interviewer complains about their current staff when they first meet you. Already bad mouthing staff to someone who might become part of the team quickly flags up a domineering boss. Run the other way and don't look back. Sign 3 We're looking for a rock star ninja beast for a unique opportunity. As a company you could say we 'wear many hats'. Random buzzwords and enigmatic phrases are never ...ok? good. It suggests a company that doesn't have a clear idea how they want to utilise you and imagine you filling several roles simultaneously. Sign 4 Overselling a job means that it is Usually too good to be true especially when the job description is vague and they haven't questioned if you You can be your own boss! The sky is the limit to what have the relevant experience. you can earn! Sign 5 I see you have advertised EASY JOB! Do you keep this job for a while it is everywhere online. EXTRA MONEY! seeing that same job advertised over JOB OPPORTUNITY and over? Yeah, that probably means something. Something bad. Er....yeah we've been looking for the right person... Sign 6 Where can someone who works hard at this job be in five years? No mention of a path Somewhere else. for career progression. You can do better than a dead end job! Sign 7 Nothing. Run while you still can. Level with me, Workers being brutally what is good about working here? honest. Ask what is the best thing and worst thing about working here. If the big boss is not there people can be really honest. Sign 8 If you want to work here we are gonna need you to pay upfront costs for your background Your potential check, training and your office space. employer wants money from you to begin working here. This is a company already on the ropes. I'm the big boss you Sign 9 must obey me you How do employees subordinate fools! act around the boss when he speaks? If they are looking at the floor and act like they don't want to be there then this says either he is domineering or an embarrassment of a leader. Sign 10 (sigh) Look at the people ..arghhhh you pass and look at their expressions and body language. Do they look like they want to be there? That could be you if you accept this job. ...arghhhh Illustrations: Clara Prieto ai)approvedindex
