ecorated with a crystal chandelier and a plasma television, authorities claim.
Authorities allege that Yeomans embezzled the money from 2001 to 2007 while she was chief financial officer for Quality Woodworks, Inc., a cabinetry business in San Marcos.
She spent at least $240,000 on 400 pairs of shoes, $300,000 on designer clothing and 160 purses valued at $2,000 each, investigators allege. She also remodeled a bedroom into a closet with the chandelier and a 32-inch TV, they said.
The losses went unnoticed and the company never hired an outside auditor to check the books because she had a trusted position, Varnau said. Meanwhile, he said, the company was forced to lay off workers and restructure operations because of the losses.
sume. I recommend to people they can make a creative cover letter to show that. We've even had people tailor their resumes to our unique job descriptions (I work at Zappos and we have pretty unique job descriptions). I agree with Jennifer that it can open the door for applicants alleging discrimination based off of those things.…
I think it is short-sighted to put so much emphasis on the alleged habits of an entire category of humans born within a 18-20 year span of time. The current and future workforce is far too complex and diverse to lump millions of people together as if they are part of an enormous synchronized swimming team. Also, not sure I'd be too concerned with any so-called trends referenced by Mashable. …
folks re-employed. One of the big things I do is to un-teach/un-learn their misconception that only IT skills matter. So, perhaps the deeper issue you mentioned is my teaching them how to walk, talk and look at their hiring from the employer's point of view.
I've also seen IT workers who have made poor decisions and worked at the 21st century's version of IT "sweatshops". Of course, these people get fired for stupid reasons or bad management. So, they need help getting over the 'getting fired' hump. This is a big problem of the long term unemployed (6months and over), which is my specialty.
Of course, there is a movement within U.S. IT worker advocacy groups that allege that the corp-to-corp IT staff firms discriminate against U.S. IT workers. This article describes the alleged problem:
But this isn't my purview and I don't really know if it is a big problem.
I work with people who have been unemployed so long they fear their careers are over. It happens in every industry, not just IT. Of course, these are the 35 and over workers. Not the under 30 crowd.
It's almost as if you thought you had hired a money machine. Or maybe you put this new "rock star" in the spotlight so much that other team members decided to black ball her? People need to feel good about the team they are on. If they do - they stay.
Regardless of "alleged" track record - every employee needs to have a bit more hand holding while they acclimate than it appears you did. Being that surprised when someone leaves in 6 months tells me that nobody on the team had struck up a solid relationship with your "rock star".
Maybe next time you could be a little less "star struck" and actually involve yourself or a manager in truly getting to know the person you've just hired.…
ered a few bucks. What business are you in, any way?
For those of you NOT in the know - Linkedin has been using an entirely new way to encourage use to connect with each other. A huge window opens in the middle of the page with people you may want to connect with. Not the old way that has always been there. This function doesn't require you to pretend you know them, have their email address or allege that you've worked with them. Just hit the connect button and send. You can add a note (which I do) but you aren't required to do any of that.
So I'll repeat: Get over yourselves people! …
ne of these issues have been properly addressed:
Several people saying they had not been paid by BJs.
The recent post from Christine saying she was not paid - but BJs was.
Jeremy's video is STILL being advertised here with outrageous claims of success.
Erica you and I had a great conversation on the phone earlier this year. I admire your enhusiasm for your career and company. I'm just surprised Jeremy and Co. are not a little more concerned over some of the content in your videos. Some times being "too transparent" is not a good thing in sales.
You seem like a very sweet person so please only think of this as advice from someone "out here". Some "facts" are better left unspoken.…
