People Are Sharing Industry Secrets From Their Jobs, Here’s 51 Of The Most Surprising Ones Not sure if this counts, but when I was in car sales I learned real quick that the actual car itself isn’t where the real money is at, but the backend is. So like warranties, getting work done, etc etc.

Most dealerships will still put up a fight on the actual price of the car though because they know most people are focused on the car itself. This is also done to help wear you down so you’re less likely to fight on the backend when they say they’ll discount the car price down to X amount but you have to get a warranty or 2 with it. More often than not, most people will cave because they got 2-3k off on the car and don’t realize the warranties are adding on 2-5k and warranties are often straight profit.

Different dealerships tweak the above strategy to their market but generally they all play it to some degree.

People Are Sharing Industry Secrets From Their Jobs, Here’s 51 Of The Most Surprising Ones I feel like it just surprised me in general once I entered the world of work to learn how disorganised things are behind the scenes, even at the biggest of companies.

People Are Sharing Industry Secrets From Their Jobs, Here’s 51 Of The Most Surprising Ones I don’t know if the rule has changed since I left, but you CAN 100% bring in candy at the movie theater. I worked at an AMC and was tearing tickets one day, a slow day. I was chatting with my manager when a lady came in with a grocery bag full of snacks. I tore her ticket, directed her to her room, and asked the manager about the candy. She said it’s ok. You aren’t allowed to bring in “hot food”. I believe it’s because it’s a health code violation.

So stop doing that stupid s**t like using a huge bowl to pretend you are pregnant. You aren’t a f****n’ rebel. You are basically j-walking. No one cares.

People Are Sharing Industry Secrets From Their Jobs, Here’s 51 Of The Most Surprising Ones Cable TV “customer service” the “Assumed Close”

Basically I was told to interview customers and ask if they thought that they might like to have this product or that product, and then this service or that service, what ever service they said they responded positively to I was to make a check in the corresponding sales order and have them sign before I left the house. Then in a day or so tech would show up at their house with their order and their signature showing that they did indeed order it.

Never could bring myself to do it. Scummy as could be. Time Warner Cable for those curious.

People Are Sharing Industry Secrets From Their Jobs, Here’s 51 Of The Most Surprising Ones From a nursing home with fractured leadership:

CNAs often times have to speed run their cares which is abusive at times.

Patients will spit on and hit staff and face no consequences.

Patients will call black staff the N word with no consequences.

Morbidly obese patients will require routine cleaning of all their yeasty folds by up to 4 staff and will reject weight restriction diets. They’ll request a commode at the bedside so staff have to rinse their p**s and s**t into a toilet multiple times a day.

Mentally ill patients in general will abuse staff and face no consequences. Only thing taken seriously is if a “vulnerable adult” is hurt or afraid.

EMS professionals who wanted to save lives become cab drivers for anybody who falls on the floor or they take calls to pick fat people off the floor. EMS > HOSPITAL > NURSING HOME cycle becomes a way to drain taxpayer dollars from government. It can’t be plugged cause a death/injury will be made into a big deal to necessitate caution.

There are rich people who seem to just move around the country and be piles of s**t instead of changing themselves.

Majority of salary people do about 8 hours of work a week and keep employment by “BEING POSITIVE!” and sucking up to power.

Staff will disable call lights on problematic residents with mental health problems and inability to communicate because otherwise the alarms beep 24/7 and all the mentally ill patients start going psycho. Out of touch HAPPY salary people will cry wolf and point fingers while doing their 8 hours a week. Meanwhile direct care staff do 70 hour weeks contracting life altering fungal diseases from all the morbidly obese folds and a*s cracks.

The point where nursing homes, software, hospitals, EMS, bureaucracy, pharmacies, colleges, and federal reimbursement intersects is a weird mess of power struggles, failures, apathy, and lies/omissions that piled up for decades to the detriment of direct care staff and residents. For example see the opioid crisis for an extreme example but similar stuff is everywhere.

Then covid happened and it guess what, the people doing all the fuckery were unscathed while many hardworking decent people got sick and developed morbidities, died or lost family members.

1) How much plastic is used in surgery. No amount of paper straws is going to come within neutralizing the sheer volume of plastic that a standard surgical department will throw away in one day. Not to say that I have an alternate solution, but it was disconcerting to say the least.

2) How rough surgeons can be with someone’s body while they’re performing surgery. I think the phrase “surgical precision” is kind of an oxymoron now, unless you’re talking about vascular or neurosurgery.

Years ago, I worked adjacent to the tobacco industry. My area’s RJ Reynolds rep was telling me he went to a retirement party for a colleague who had been with RJ for decades. She was drunk, spilling all kinds of tea, including the fact that cigarette shippers (cardboard displays) use to be placed in the lines at grocery stores specifically to be stolen by children. They knew we couldn’t buy them so they counted on us to steal. And we did. And my gen smoked. .

People Are Sharing Industry Secrets From Their Jobs, Here’s 51 Of The Most Surprising Ones A large majority of “loading screens” in commercial software and to a lesser extent games are fake.

Really common in all kinds of “corporate software” that older people are likely to use.

People Are Sharing Industry Secrets From Their Jobs, Here’s 51 Of The Most Surprising Ones Warranty work is purposely delayed.

Lets say you have a product that has a manufacturing defect and is covered by warranty. Companies accept the warranty repair work yet sit on ordering the actual part needed to affect the repair until financials support that part purchase. Often it’s better to use money (or on hand parts) for new customers as that’s more profitable than fixing their mistakes/error.

Personally, I always thought supporting your existing customers was more important than getting new ones, but that’s not how most businesses operate. It genuinely surprised me when I found out. I see it all the time in construction, manufacturing, and retail.

My experience, teaching for an online university is like the great clips of teaching. You do it because they have minimum vetting and you get experience. My stipend per course equates roughly to minimum wage. I have 25 years in my field but needed classroom experience for future opportunities so online school helps.

A third of the students don’t care at all and cheat at every turn. A third care enough to get by. And a third seem like they care enough to put in a good effort. For anyone who wants to cheat – at least cheat smartly. Don’t pull things from the Internet that I can find in two clicks. Don’t use references to past versions of the course. Don’t hand in c**p one week and perfection the next. And most of all, don’t complain about a bad grade when you have clearly cheated, you are wasting my time and that means a bad grade.

The university doesn’t care if you fail. You’ve already paid.

If you make it easy for me to give you a good grade, you will get a good grade!!!!!!

Worked for a health insurance company that provided coverage for people with Medicaid and used the DRG reimbursement method to pay some providers. The charges on a hospital bill were literally meaningless, all that mattered were the diagnosis codes/procedure codes. Hospital could have charged $5 dollars or $15 million dollars, payment would have been the same regardless. Another one of the many ways in which US healthcare is just so whack.

FryDay444 Report

Going from an undergrad to a grad student/TA who grades papers was pretty eye-opening. As an undergrad, submitting a late assignment is a *huge* deal. As a graduate student, I could be as late as I want with little-to-no consequence at all. Not a word of a lie: one of my profs was so chill, he said, “Why don’t I just enter a C for you in the course now, and then when you can get the paper in, I’ll make it an A.” I handed in that paper *seven years* late, and he made it an A. (I suffered depression, my wife had a medical crisis, and all sorts of things happened to make me take so long.) Meanwhile, undergrad students ask me for 2 or 3 days extra, and I feel like the biggest hypocrite, putting on this show: “Hmm, I don’t know. It really needs to be in soon… Do you *promise* Monday by noon?” (As if I’m grading anything at noon.) The truth is that the main reason you need to have it in “on time” is for my convenience and for the sake of giving you useful feedback before the next assignment is due. There’s no real reason I couldn’t just grade everything just before the grades are due at the end of the semester.

mpworth Report

Law school admissions. Applicants seem to think that we want to know your standardized testing scores and GPA back until kindergarten, all of your extracurriculars, etc.

I really only need to know one number: LSAT score. The number of applicants we get and what we can charge depends in no small amount on US News ranking. US News rankings have shifted slightly, but a disproportionate amount of rank rests on the LSAT average of entering classes. The higher your rank, the more students apply and the more those students are willing to pay. GPA also matters for USN rank but high GPA students are a dime a dozen. So don’t let your 2.1 GPA dissuade you from applying to law school. With the right LSAT score, you’ll still get a scholarship to a T1 school. Extracurriculars kind of matter, but typically only in close cases or if you have some truly outstanding achievement.

Take the LSAT as many times as you can. A few points higher can be worth tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships.

Digital marketing – how most marketing these days is just basically playing a game with Google. Only a very small amount is about customer experience and making flashy content, most of it is just SEO which is fundamentally messing around with really niche aspects of a website’s content to appeal to Google and therefore make them show that website higher on the page when you search certain things. That can be as little as rewriting a few sentences on a page, or adding a specific word to a page title. I knew that was an aspect but it took me by surprise as to how prevalent it is.
