Good thread.

-I went on an interview and there were tons of red flags I saw that entire day. The manager was tense, rude to other employees, and high strung. I was so eager to get the job, and low and behold when I got it I hated it. I saw a birds eye view of the culture of the office that day and it was an accurate depiction of the office environment. LESSON: an interview is your opportunity to decide if you are comfortable with a potential employer, not just an opportunity for you to impress them.

- I didn't negotiate my salary for my 1st job, and found out others were paid more than me.

- Never work directly under a single, high-strung single, childless woman in her late 30s or 40s. Just don't.

She had no life. All of her friends were preoccupied with their families and careers, and her dating life was non-existent. She spent her nights and weekends working, and she would take on additional assignments. You know what that means? More work for her subordinates! We would have to explain to her that we had PLANS! You know, spending time with friends, SOs, kids, and she would be like, "oh yeah." It was like she didn't realize everyone else had a social life and she would make us feel guilty for not working extra hours even though I'm pretty sure secretly she was bitter we had things to look forward to outside of work.
