        Great Coworkers, Well Paid, Company is Profitable, That's about it


        Since Signet purchased Blue Nile, they have allowed the new parent company, R2Net, to seemingly try and run it into the ground. The majority of the original staff has now been let go, false promises to find new roles for employees within the parent company, mismanagement is rampant, severe lack of information or direction for remaining employees, company culture is becoming non-existent, vendors and contractors are no longer being paid in a timely manner (over 2 months without pay for many), employees are stuck in a state of limbo not knowing if or how long they will continue to have a job or what their role may be, morale is at an all time low.

      Executive Administrative Assistant

      Hello, Please be kind. I’m so out of the loop and beat down, and may have posted this in a wrong group. I have been at my job 11 years, applied for a new job out of my organization. Posting closed last Mon. Tues at 4:40 they emailed to request an interview and wanted my top days/times for upcoming M-W. I responded with pref Wed afternoon as 1, Tues early or late as 2 or 3. I have not heard a response. I have to figure out an excuse to go on Tues to leave work. Is this normal to keep hanging on?


      City of Boston

      hi , I’m new here 👋 I have an interview coming up and I’m struggling on how to answer the “tell me about yourself statement question.” I personally don’t like to talk about myself and have the tendency to start talking about me but then I end up talking about what’s on my resume 🤦‍♀️ any advice ?


      Alexa Rivera

      Hi, I applied for a job at a small business warehouse and I had a phone call with them about 1.5 weeks ago. It went well and a few days after, I got an email asking me when can I do an in person interview. I replied the following business day and gave them three dates. However, it’s been 4 days and they have not responded back to my email response. I even sent them a follow up and nothing. What does this mean and what should I do?
