Deceived? Betrayed?

Have you ever felt deceived by your employer? Did you accept a position that was presented as one thing during the interview but then turned out to be something else once you started the job? Here are some examples of how employers deceive potential employees according to Forbes.

  1. They highlight one or two positive things about the position. Maybe they have a casual dress code or flexible hours. But, once you show up for work while you might dress casually sans the suit and tie, you find that your works hours are constantly changing or that the work environment is otherwise so miserable that the last several people in your position quit.
  2. Maybe they leave out the part about the lack of benefits or that its 37.5 hours a week, not 40 hours. Or the opposite what if it advertised at 37.5 but they really need you there 60 hours a week?
  3. Or maybe the job title is worded to sound more technical than it is and you find out your just the office gopher.

It’s probably pretty safe to say that something like this has happened to most of us at one time or another and to some degree. If it hasn’t yet, it probably will. It has certainly happened to me and that is some of the inspiration for my Maggie Gray Trilogy.  Of course, Maggie Gray’s experience is a little bit more extreme than my own personal, check out The Deceived on Amazon
