On Fall Fashion
@Miss_B OK, we are the same person b/c once it hits 65 I'm like get me out of this tropical rain forest.
On Fall Fashion
@garli I am with you! Everyone looks better in layers. I hate summer clothes. Women's summer clothes are always in ugly pastels which I hate and I can't deal with flip flops being worn everywhere. FEET - put them away. Scarves, cardigans, jackets all the way. Man, do I love a good jacket.
@HelloTheFuture Aw man OK. I guess the receptionist's stink eye wasn't just my imagination after all.
Timely! I just got a haircut from my regular dude and he totally botched it. My bangs look like Jim Carrey's in Dumb & Dumber and the rest looks like a blind person's interpretation of The Rachel. It's bad. I think I need to find a new person but he was considered "cheap" at $45 before tip. He also never pushes products on me which I like (my previous dude did it all of the time and I caved once and bought $40 worth of products that I never ended up using). Also, do you guys tip the hair washer? I never know if I should and I usually don't unless I have some random singles in my wallet.
No Instagram?! Kidding, kinda.
@Tripleoxer I've never gone beyond 2 interviews. Four seems so unnecessary; they should know by now if they want you or not! Good luck w/the interview and your final decision!
Oooh I forgot about one where I had a warning by HR over the phone about the hiring manager being "difficult" and hard to work with. Then during the in-person interview, a colleague of the hiring manager's spent her entire interview time saying how the hiring manager had a reputation in the company (of 200+ ppl) and that I'd have to have thick skin to deal with her. The hiring manager didn't seem that bad when I talked with her one-on-one but everyone puts on a good face during interviews. I got an offer 2 days later but declined even though they kept alluding to more $ than I initially asked for. I do not regret this one!
I said no to a job at Dana Farber even though the team & manager I interviewed with were awesome and the interview felt more like conversations with old friends. At the time I was freshly laid off and I didn't want to stay in the print production field but now that I look back on it, I kind of regret it and view it as The One That Got Away due to the people I could've been working with. Also, cut to two years later and guess what field I'm STILL in? Urgh.
This would be PERFECT to do secret phone interviews during the day. Places I've done phone interviews: Macy's lobby; Macy's glove dept (VERY noisy for some reason); behind current employer's bldg outside, in January; random office bldg lobby vestibule w/glares from security; outside of a start-up's elevator banks/men's restroom entrance.
I'm about to start a new job where the entire department is like a retirement community in Florida (I'm 35 but I act & look younger). So I dunno, I think these ladies will be nice to work with but I don't foresee any close bonds or friendships forming. I love the people I work with now but it's just a temp job and I'm leaving it for full time pastures.
