  1. Wow, this was one of the first posts I ever posted on here too. Congratulations to you both.
  2. I like people more than companies too, which is why I don't care for it. What I have learned from HR is that certain rules only apply to certain people, and that the CEO's and other top level people call the shots even if it is against company policy, which is what we are supposed to uphold, yet we take the blame when anything goes wrong. As for me, I spend most of my time helping people with their company provided benefits. I am looking to move into my career field but it has been rough. I would never do this for a career if I could help it, but I have mouths to feed.
  3. I'm in Human Resources (not a CEO or manager) and I'll tell you that even I can hardly stand it .
  4. Yeah, that is true. It didn't really bother me. I look at it this way: If I have nothing to hide so I have nothing to worry about.
  5. I had one performed at a job that had nothing to do with finance and actually had to write a letter explaining some discrepancies on my credit report.
  6. I agree with some of what you are saying but a drug screen? How about employer liability? I don't know about you but I wouldn't want someone with a drug habit working around heavy machinery or stealing from me to support their habit. As far as checking credit history goes, I think it depends on the job. I wouldn't hire an accountant that couldn't manage his own money.
  7. Not only are they sent overseas, but you should have seen the lines of people apply for the jobs! It was my first office job, making $11.95 an hour (I had no college degrees at the time) and there were people in India with Master's degrees lined up for job interviews for these types of positions. Corporations don't care about people just profits. Corporations are the worst evil of capitalism.
  8. It was taken over by corporations. I once worked for a company with the word "American" in its title. They laid off a couple of hundred people and gave the jobs to people in India. Ironic, isn't it?
  9. Completely agree with you here tim.Thankfully it isn't a burden that I have to carry. If masturbation is a sin, then I'll be in the ninth level of hell.
  10. Actually, the law and most of the nation see her as a minor as well.
  11. If you really don't want to be in the marriage, I think you owe it to him to be straight up and tell him you want out, to be fair to him.
  12. Bingo. You really need to get all of this on the table with her before you get married or these feelings of doubt will continue. I also feel if she is marrying you then she should cut off contact with the ex, but that is my personal opinion.
