I have been waking up at 12:30 and 1 in the morning because the maintenance workers are getting into the closet across from my apartment and mopping at this time. I am so sick of it! They also mop the front lobby, which I am right next to, run up and down the stairs, and make all kinds of noise on the elevator as well, all at odd hours. I don't know why they can't do this crap at normal daytime hours. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I know this is a confusing question, but i was wondering if anyone knew the type of workers one would need to show a movie at a theatre. Like managers, ushers... get the idea?
I was looking at a competitors website. We are in the commercial building maintenance business. They are ALWAYS looking for new staff. So pretending to be a job seeker, with moderate to high level of experience, like the ability to run a carpet extractor, floor buffer, steam cleaner, etc. This was all semi-skilled work. I threw them a bone too. I know how to polish stone floors and screen and recoat hardwood floors. These two tasks are considered skilled work.
They responded that they were interested and the pay rate was $8-8.25 per hour for this sort of thing. If upon testing I was found deficient, there were always opportunities to make $7.75 per hour, the "entry pay scale" and work my way up to "as much as $8.50 per hour".
Now I understand why they always look for help. They pay too little and probably will take anyone with a pulse. I'm not like that. I am very selective about who I hire. First you must be legally able to work in the USA. Then you have to pass a background check with my employee bonding company. Then you need a high school diploma or GED. You must be able to read, write and speak English with proficiency to read bottles, work orders, etc. Finally, you must be able to lift 50 lbs or team lift 125 lbs safely.
My new hire, unskilled worker gets $8.50 per hour, their top of scale. After 90 days You get $9.00. After a year, $9.50. You also get a $280 health insurance plan paid 50?e me. If you decline, you get a $140 a month stipend instead. If you are semi-skilled, you get an extra $1-1.25 per hour. If you are skilled and making me big money, an extra $2.25-2.50 per hour. My highest paid worker right now has been with me since I started 3 years ago. He makes $12.25 per hour and is worth it. Most of my staff makes $9.75-10.50 per hour.
They are really good at what we do. We have a large investment in equipment. I won a bid not long ago because the weekly cost was 30 man hours per week at $22.50 per hour, $675. I was told the next nearest bidder was 40 man hours at $20 per hour, $800 per week. I have a feeling it was this competitor. They were using a 3rd competitor who appears to be losing clients left and right. They sold me a 30" wide Hoover vacuum that retails new for about $1900 for $800. It was like new. I purchased two other 18" wide Hoovers that go for $400 each for $125 each. The were moderately worn out but a bargain and I'll rebuild them for $100 to like new condition. This company is declining and they don't worry me. The other company is stronger. I see my company working smarter and their just working cheaper. I'd like to think in the long run, quality prevails over price. Do you agree? Thanks.
I am interested to see what this position is called. The work with eye doctor but the are the poeple you see before you see the doctor.

I know everyone has to start somewhere, but I prefer working in a certain place. I worked in 4 different jobs as an intern, and I found out that jobs that have customers aren't for me. What jobs are there where I just work at the back, and not deal with customers. Please help. I don't care if I have to start at the bottom. I don't want to work at a place where I deal with customers, because I know I would be fired. Please give as many recommendations as possible. And thank you.
Is it diverse? (My family and I are black)
What are the jobs and schools like?
What are some fun, affordable things to do?
With all this stress it is difficult to think. I don't want to make any errors getting back on my feet. Please help me to create a "to do" list. Thank you.
I have completed a BSc in Civil Engineering and a MSc in Structural Engineering. I am interested in doing a PHD in either water engineering or transportation. Is this possible?
I am a straight A student and I wish to get a job as waitress. I wanted to know which restaurants, here in Dallas, Texas, hire fifteen year olds. You are probably asking, ' What's the rush? ' , well I really need money to help pay for martial art or gymnastic classes.

I got a job in the cafeteria high school (min. wage. I didn't want this job but took it because they were needing people.) So now unlike my other job in the cafeteria as an assistant/ cleaning, this one now I actually serve food. I have to serve plates to high school kids. I was a newbie and never done this but seemed simple. Third day in my boss was telling me to work faster. And by the end of the week I was being told again to work faster. My boss told me if I continued to go "slow" she was gonna cut me. She told me and this other person who was relatively new too.
I work as best and fast I can. But yet to other people I am slow. Especially serving 150-200+ plates out the window. Also this place is lacking people. I have been yelled at because I don't go fast and because 3 people didn't show at work for 2 days. One day 2 people didn't show. I hate it cause I end up working alone and other people are sometimes put in to help me and boss gets mad. Also I understand the boss cause its important to feed many people. Since I was new I was very nervous and always asking questions. But they still got mad at me. Since I'm the only guy there the boss always makes me go to the freezer/ storage to grab/ move heavy things. And also boss gets mad for telling me what to do. I never done this. I'm 6'2" 240 lbs. I don't know I think I'm not suitable for fast pace. Also I get nervous that I blank out and forget things. I get information overload too. My question to anyone reading is if I'm slow I don't belong in these places right? Should I consider working at "slower" or less of the stress of fast paced jobs? Like what jobs could I seek that won't be as super-fast paced? Data entry? Cashier? I have a college degree graphic design because I love art. And I also like music. Other than that I have no other experience besides food service and minimum work in building maintenance.
Should I just quit my current job? I would assume if I was that bad I would've been fired? But I'm now entering my 2nd week at the school I may not last long if I keep my pace. I can not physically go faster. I go as fast as I can. I fear if I go to other jobs they may think the same? Is this a disability? HELP?
I am kinda unlucky on my job search(St.Paul, MN)

Are there companies or organizatrions who
typically hire for such positions a lot?
I am appreciating any help.
I had an interview for a cleaning position at an apartment complex. I sent my resume this last Friday night, and she called me yesterday evening for an interview. I went in today at 9am for the interview. The property manager pretty much interviewed me and asked a few simple questions. She asked me about my background and if I had any felonies, and if my drivers license was valid, and if I had my own reliable transportation. Then she asked my strengths and weaknesses, and where I see myself in 5 years, and how I handle stress. I told her that I would like to get into building maintenance and maybe take some classes, and maybe working there would expose me to some things that the maintenace people do. I told her my strengths were I'm always reliable, dependable, and a hard-worker. I didnt really know my weaknesses and she agreed and said its hard to find your own weaknesses.
I was very easy-going in the interview and made lots of eye contact and gave simple straight forward answers. During the interview, she smiled and asked me if I was a quiet guy, and I smiled and said yes and then I asked her how she knew it and she just smiled. She might have been guessing, I dont know! I did tell her that I wanted to say one of my weaknesses was that I was quiet, but then again I didnt really see anything wrong with it because I do my work and never get distracted this way. I told her it would depend on the person that was judging me about my quietness and what they perceived. She then asked, "so you probably dont engage in extra conversation on the side?" and I said "yes, I dont" and I think she wrote quietness down under weaknesses. But then she told me more about the duties and then told me I was a quiet guy and wanted to make sure I knew what I was getting into, so she called in the maintenance supervisor to take me to this apartment that someone had just moved out of. She also said that after I get done checking out the apartment, to come back if I didnt think it was hard to do. She told the maintenance supervisor that I was all gung-ho over the position and "stating the facts" as in answering her questions specifically. She asked the maintenance supervisor if there was any really dirty apartments so she could see some of the work there is that I would have to do (I guess thats what she meant). It wasnt even that dirty when he showed me the apartment, and the maintenace guy told me that the job I would be doing isnt that hard, and she just wanted to scare me and that it pays good and theres job security. He seemed like a friendly easy-going guy, seemed like he'd be pretty easy to get along with. I seen another maintenace guy that was busy working and he seemed quiet too even though I havent dealt with him and dont even know him.
She told me to come back tomorrow at 8:30am to do a test-clean and that it pays 80 dollars by check. During the interview when she explained the duties, she told me the procedure they usually use and the steps they do when they clean the apartment and how they clean it but it was brief.
Is this her testing me to see if I do a good job? Do you think I got the job? She did give me an application to fill out at the end of the interview, and told me to bring it back tomorrow all filled out when I do the test-clean.
Her behavior just seemed odd. As if she was observing my every move or something. Maybe she was just very interested in my appearance and behavior? My resume is very good. I am a very quiet person though and always have been. I'm very easy-going. I sort of get paranoid when I get called quiet because I dont want people to think I'm weird or odd! I wore a button up, dress pants, and dress shoes with a hoodie over it, but you could see the collar of my shirt sticking through my hoodie... I didnt have a dress jacket.
I did tell her I wanted to take evening classes in building maintenance or automotive technology. And she explained the demographics of building maintenance. She asked me what I would accept for the starting wage, and I told her 8.50-9.00 an hour and I figured this would be reasonable because most cleaning jobs pay around that. She then looked at me funny and said "you would accept that?" and I said, "yeah" and THATS when she said "you seem like an easy-going guy".
I'm not even sure if this is the right category to post this in!
