HSA monthly fee

FYI if you have an HSA you should consider transferring to another provider. WFM covered our monthly maintenance fee pre-Amazon, but that is no longer the case. Maybe $3 a month isn't much but it adds up. There are other companies that do not ... —  read more

OTS

I left a couple years ago, just as OTS was rolling out. Has it worked? Has it gotten better? Are there still multiple clipboards for silly stuff that’s not helpful to anyone in the real world?

Weird 1-off jobs

I went to a store that had a porter. We have a demo specialist which I've been told is a thing of the past in other regions. Another had a concierge. These don't exist in our region. What other weird jobs are out there.

Embarrassing

I worked at the holiday table today. I was embarrassed to give half of that food to customers. Some of it looked like cheap slop. You could see the disappointment in their faces after waiting for 20 minutes for their food to arrive.
