Job hunting is frustrating. It can become even more frustrating when you’re getting not told the truth right away. How can you watch out for these? Redditor u/Zdvj’s here to help, asking fellow Redditors "What are some job-posting red flags that scream, 'Stay away'?" Here’s what people had to say.
- "'Fast-paced environment.' That usually means absolute chaos with no one in charge."
- "'Salary to be discussed.' Every single job I've gone for where the salary wasn't disclosed up front in the interview was severely underpaid."
- "'Urgently hiring multiple candidates.'"
- "'We are a family' companies expect you to be fine with getting underpaid and doing endless overtime because, hey, they order food once in a while for the team, which is so cool..."
- "'Startup culture' means 'a disorganized hot mess of egos.'"
- "'Occasional overtime' means 'Just say goodbye to your family because you'll never leave the office again.'"
- "'Entry level' and 'three to five years' experience required' don't belong in the same job posting."
- "'Work hard, play hard': 90-hour workweeks, all time off denied, your boss will show up personally to yell at you if and when you get sick."
