Cracking the Human Resource Code

Most of our competitors don't pay much either.

We have no time to train you.

You'll be here very late, very often—might as well be comfortable.

Your first four projects are already way overdue.

Did we mention that you'll be here very late, very often? And most weekends.

Anyone in the office can boss you around.

We have no quality control.

Female applicants must be childless.

If you're old, fat or ugly, that position has already been filled.

This job listing is just a legal formality. The position was filled by some executive's nephew.

Due to consolidation, you'll be replacing three people.

This company is a total mess.

You'll have all the responsibilities of upper management, without the pay, title or respect.

Listen to management, figure out what they want, don't ask too many questions and get the sh_t done.

Don’t Kid About Employment Benefits

Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources person asked a young engineer who was fresh out of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, “What starting salary were you thinking about?”

The engineer said, “In the neighborhood of $125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package.”

The interviewer said, “Well, what would you say to a package of five weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every two years—say, a red Corvette?”

The Engineer sat up straight and said, “Wow! Are you kidding?”

The interviewer replied, “Yeah, but you started it.”
