Job Deal-Breakers, HR as profit sucking overhead and the Truth About SHRM Certifications
Ever found yourself staring down the rabbit hole of job hunting, wondering what deal-breakers you won't budge on? Join Warren and CC this week as we spill the beans on the core principles that steer our job selection compass. Crack open the conversation with us as we reveal the red lines we simply won't cross, like micromanagement mayhem or companies with reputations that make your skin crawl. CC bravely shares the jitters surrounding maternity leave, especially with an employee engagement survey looming overhead. It's a no-holds-barred session on workplace non-negotiables that you can't afford to miss if you're navigating the job market.Pull up a chair for a round of job transition tales that range from laughably bad to downright soul-crushing. Our banter on past gigs—like the water park with more drama than a daytime soap, to that manufacturing job with expectations as stable as a house of cards—will have you nodding in solidarity. Plus, we don't shy away from the delicate dance of airing out workplace grievances on social media; expect some eyebrow-raising anecdotes and a shared cringe over what can unfold. This chapter isn't just us rambling; it's a mirror to those all-too-common career quandaries we face, painted with a broad stroke of humor and hard-earned wisdom.Capping off this rollercoaster chat, we put a magnifying glass over the glaring job red flags we've learned to recognize, and we're pulling back the curtain on the HR field's love affair with certifications. Is a SHRM badge the holy grail of expertise, or could a quick Google search trump a framed certificate? I candidly confess why those four letters no longer grace my LinkedIn—and it's a reveal that might just shake up how you view professional credentials. Whether you're contemplating the benefits of being certified or simply curious about the world of HR, this episode packs a punch with insights you didn't know you needed.Support the showWe want to hear from you.Text us at (252) 564-9899‬email: feedback@jadedhr.comWant to:* Share a dumb employee question* Share a crazy story* Ask us a question* Share a best practice * Give us feedback Our Link Tree below has links to our social media sites, Patreon, Apple podcasts, Spotify & more.Please leave a review on your favorite podcast player and interact with us online!Linktree - https://linktr.ee/jadedhr

Lying Influencers, Mistaken Billionaires & Delusional CEOs: Just a typical day
Are firings fair game for social media spectacle? That's the firestorm we're stepping into as we examine the Soundfire firing controversy that's blazing across the internet. We're not just bystanders—we're dissecting the viral video of an employee's very public termination, weighing in on its authenticity and pondering the long-term fallout of such personal moments turned public. But the digital realm holds more than just drama; a new HR podcast, 'Corporate Pizza Party', slices into industry insights with the sharp wit of our colleague Dan from HR, and we can't help but raise an eyebrow at the tales of a Gen Z worker who reportedly would rather hit the gym than the boardroom. Now, let's clear the air on a few things. Mark Cuban's hiring comments ignited a firestorm of their own, but EEOC Commissioner Andrea Lucas was quick with a correction, reminding us all of the legal lines that can't be crossed in employment. And speaking of lines, we're drawing a bold one as we confront the serious allegations against Vince McMahon, shining a spotlight on WWE's internal wrangling and the critical importance of legal savvy in HR. As we gear up for our fourth anniversary with an "Ask Me Anything" episode, we're tossing the mic to you—so share your questions, and your wildest HR stories, for a chance to be featured. Join us, CeCe and Warren, as we tackle these hot topics with the thoroughness they deserve, and with a hint of humor to keep things lively.Support the showWe want to hear from you.Text us at (252) 564-9899‬email: feedback@jadedhr.comWant to:* Share a dumb employee question* Share a crazy story* Ask us a question* Share a best practice * Give us feedback Our Link Tree below has links to our social media sites, Patreon, Apple podcasts, Spotify & more.Please leave a review on your favorite podcast player and interact with us online!Linktree - https://linktr.ee/jadedhr

Morons, Influencers and Shysters, Oh My
As we navigate the treacherous seas of HR, Warren and I can't help but question the absence of compassion in corporate corridors. This episode exposes the hard truths behind the firing of an employee from Kite Baby—a company that prides itself on family values—simply for requesting remote work to care for her adopted micro-preemie. The uproar that followed on TikTok serves as a stark reminder that the face behind the brand isn't always what it seems. We also shine a light on the pulse surveys trend, revealing how these quick-fire employee feedback tools could be the next revolution—or just another fad—in gauging staff contentment.Now, let's talk optics and interviewing—two things that should go hand in hand but often don't. A poorly handled GoFundMe campaign can cause more than just a PR hiccup; it can lead to a full-blown identity crisis for brands like Kite Baby. Warren and I dissect the aftermath of their mishap, then pivot to the interviewee's perspective. We share candid tales from our own hiring experiences, drawing from the good, the bad, and the cringeworthy to equip you with the insights you need to bring your true self to your next big opportunity.Concluding with the darker side of HR, we recount Brittany Peach's ice-cold layoff via video call and debate the ethical quagmire of recorded firings. The emergence of 'fake experts' in HR is also on our radar, prompting a call for vigilance in whom we trust for career counsel. And who could forget the time HR pros sampled CBD products on a rooftop? It sure was a memorable (and somewhat foggy) lesson in the unpredictability of our profession. Hang tight until our next episode, where we hope Feathers will be back from the digital warfront to join Warren and me in dissecting more HR conundrums.Support the showWe want to hear from you.Text us at (252) 564-9899‬email: feedback@jadedhr.comWant to:* Share a dumb employee question* Share a crazy story* Ask us a question* Share a best practice * Give us feedback Our Link Tree below has links to our social media sites, Patreon, Apple podcasts, Spotify & more.Please leave a review on your favorite podcast player and interact with us online!Linktree - https://linktr.ee/jadedhr
