Stiff me on overtime? Queue the long, expensive, revenge. | This happened in the early 2000s when I joined a start-up. We agreed on a salary and no paid over-time and an evaluation in 3 months and then annually. Standard stuff mostly.

'The total demand was something like $135k': Employer cheats guy on overtime, guy plays the long con to get it all back, plus interest

Patience is a virtue — so states the proverbial phrase — but in a modern world, that idea seldom comes into actual practice. Everything is happening so quickly, changing so suddenly, that waiting or trying to be patient often means that it's already too late. We've all been trained by the idea of “missing out” into giving in to each and every impulse; when, retrospectively, if you don't miss the thing you “missed out” on… did you really miss out at all?

Scammer Pretends to be CEO in Failed Phishing Attempt, Gets Trolled

Scammer Pretends to be CEO in Failed Phishing Attempt, Gets Trolled

Phishing is a very real threat —so why does it seem so ridiculous every time you see a story about it? Every time it makes news —or happens in your own workplace— the story is always somewhere along the lines of “Bob from accounting bought $100,000 of gift cards for fake CEO” or “Deborah from HR gave all the company's passwords to someone impersonating her boss.” You always walk wondering just what in the heck these people were thinking… How on earth did they fall for that? Usually, phishing at…

'Show a little more dedication': Bewildering viral email asks workers to eat their lunch at their desk in case CEO drops by unannounced

Nothing says dedication to your job like timidly eating lunch at your desk, nervously checking the door every few minutes to see if today is the day your overlords have decided to grace you with their presence. Let's be real here—it sounds like this manager is a little bit out of their depth. They're the kind of person who only ended up in a position of authority because they knew precisely which (two) cheek(s) to kiss—knowledge they applied regularly and with vigor. This email is a testament t…

“If you find that “job” take it! Goodbye!” - Okay, I will and take the department with me. |  So I decided to ask the question “How do you plan to retain talent when there are other companies offering 2x the money with half of the workload?” The CEO decided this question was hilarious and read it aloud laughing and responded “if you find that job (with finger quotes as if it wasn't real), you better take it, goodbye!”

CEO Laughs off Worker's Request for Raise and Tells Them To Find Another Job, They Do and Find Their Whole Department New Jobs Too

On this earth, it often seems like things happen for no reason, just a roving mess of random occurrences, happenstance tragedies, and chance meetings that have little to no meaning. Regardless of all the things that are happening out of our control, occasionally, with enough influence and intention, we can become the authors of our destinies and shape the path that lies before us. Ironically, that's exactly what this CEO was doing when they jokingly responded to a frustrated worker's question r…

Manager Sells $400k of Electronics to Employees at 90% Off in Order to Get Revenge on Shady CEO's Plot

A nefarious plot by the CEO to lay off all workers at a chain electronic store triggered a rebellion by the store's manager that would send the corporate entity reeling. Is this a plot line written by George RR Martin? Or a modern retelling of Robin Hood? You be the judge! It's no secret that CEOs and others in similar positions of unchecked power often use said power to line their coffers and fill the wallets of their closest friends and allies. It's not above them to make closed-door deals th…

Update: IT Director Quits Arrogant CEO, Reduces His Notice Period After Unprofessional Response

These are the types of "leaders" who will gladly tell you that "It's just business" when they're laying you off or refusing you a raise. Yet, when you find a better opportunity and give notice, they take it personally, acting as if you've betrayed them. Suddenly, "It's just business" isn't valid, and the employer wonders why all these employees end up "Turning against them," utterly blind to the fact that they are the common denominator.
