Travel Recommendations




Is Holiday Inn La Mirada a good place to stay in LA in terms of proximity to touristy places like universal studios and other places? I’m looking to stay somewhere that is the centre of LA so I can explore as much as possible. Going as a family so can’t be too pricey.

      Pros include access to the park, an HR department, discounts on everything at City Walk, free meals every shift, resources for education reimbursement, free therapy sessions and free wellness events like yoga classes or meditation sessions.


      Honestly, I can't think of many. They do employ favoritism and will hire and promote friends and family of employees but what happens everywhere.

      HR Administrator

      The last company I worked perm with laid me off, and I'm trying to decide the best way to word it. What I currently say doesn't elicit negative feedback. What I currently say: The company determined that they had an immediate need for someone with a higher-level skill set in my position, so they laid me off. What my spouse (who has been a hiring manager) recommends I say: The company decided to restructure my position, and I was assured it wasn't performance related. Thoughts? Thank you.
