Arrogant. Conceited. Entitled. Immature. Lazy. Rebellious. Spoiled. These are just a few words used to describe Millennials. They are usually born at the Turn of the Century in the 2000’s but can go back as far as the 1980’s. Don’t worry, folks, yours truly isn’t exempt from the scorn either.
So stop your frowning and grab your Browning, ladies and gents, the Sergeant is gonna give you all about rules that’re meant to be broken.
- Flex Time. Is the time in your workplace flexible? If your answer to that question is yes, leave now. If not, let us continue. Some companies claim that they have flexible work hours and that’s true most of the time. However, there are instances were these claims are nothing more than words on a piece of paper and in actuality aren’t true to their word. If this happens, you’d better think twice and get outta there.
- Approachable Big-Rigs. Wouldn’t it be nice if CEO’s and COO’s and even the boss was approachable? That’d be a dream come true for just about all of us and some companies claim and boast that they’re approachable. However, that’s just in theory and technicality. In actuality, it’s quite the contrary. They can be snobby or soft spoken to outright bossy and intimidating. When this happens, you’d best look elsewhere.
- Dress Code. Now, this isn’t to imply you go to work naked, ayt? Walking naked in public is an offense in just about all countries. Dress codes should be casual to modest. When a company says you should dress in formal attire, i.e., semi-formal or tuxedo’s and corporate stuff, this is a big turn off for average folk. Unless you’re earning a six or seven digit salary, you don’t need to dress fancy. So, if you’re required to wear fancy clothes, do not accept the offer. It’s a recipe to get robbed.
