    i think it's got a little table of "words to highlight if square bracketed" somewhere - so like, NFL would work and JOBS would work and FOOD would work, but [WATERBOTTLES] or [@ICYLIQUID] would not.

    Today I get to try to convince my bosses that I deserve at least minimum wage as set by Finnish law when working more than 34 hours a week in IT.
    This isn't something one should have to do, ever.
    Needless to say if they ain't paying I ain't working.

    Tonight I might get drunk.

    Question for the many wonderful/smart/attractive technical and engineering type people in the job thread; know a good OCR program that works well with camera images?

    Got a problem with barcode stickers being dissolved off and am trying to work out an efficient and automation friendly way to scan an etched serial number instead.

    Ok so. I have an interview this week. Recruiter "A" told me about Position "A" and I'm scheduled to interview Thursday at 3PM. Yesterday, Recruiter "B" (who works directly with "A") told me about Position "B" and asked if I was interested. I said "Yes, please!" So he said he'd call back, because they wanted to interview someone this week. So I wait. Yesterday afternoon, A calls me back and says, "Listen, [Some Lady] here only wants to send two or three candidates to interview for B. If you had to choose between A and B, which would you prefer?" I tell him that my qualifications are probably better suited for B, and that they're the same distance from my home so there really is no advantage to either besides I probably have a better shot at getting it. Then he tells me that this lady has her own candidates in mind, so it sounds like she's trying to elbow me out so she can submit her own people, which would be super fucked up and would force me to stop doing business with this recruiting agency. Hopefully I'll get good news today, but I was very firm about my interest in Position B as it does sound like it would be a better fit than A.

    They want me to sign a fucking nda before even discussing the pay.
    The nda doesn't apply to that.

    I've already been working for them for a while without pay which was incredibly stupid and I realize that and NOW they want me to sign an NDA. To protect the customers, apparently.

    This is not how you conduct business. I am not signing that until I get money for the work I already did, and I'm probably not going to get that money anyway.
    Just going to stop wasting my time with this. Would rather go back to the grocery store working as a cashier if getting paid is going to be like pulling teeth from my dick.

    Whoa, what? Why are you working without pay and is there a signed contract somewhere that says "you work for us and we pay you"?
