Interview / Resume help
« on: Mar 30, 2018, 07:35 »
So recently I took the Mass Nuclear. I qualified however I was recently informed about if I was hired they would require tax information showing proof of all the places I worked. The problem is I worked for a locally owned furniture stire and was paid in cash. I cant use it on my resume is what I was told. I luckily got a job for the week and I am going to be working at the masters so that will replace the furniture store job on my resume. My question is can I still talk about the furniture store in my interview? I was there for almost 6 months and during our interview practice my answers revolved heavily around the furniture store. If anyone knows this answer feel free to help. Thanks.

It’s for security. If you claim it as employment you must prove it. If not you must explain what you did when unemployed. On the other hand I have never heard of the individual having to bring in the proof.

Did the furniture store give you a W-2? A 1099? If not, then you didn't work there. If you already put it on your resume/job application and there is no paper trail, which leaves you 2 unpalatable choices. You and the furniture store are dodging taxes, or you falsified your application. If the furniture store confirms your employment & you made < $600, then there is no foul. If you made > $600, but less than the amount to file a return, then you may be off the hook, although the furniture store may not. If your employment was just last year and this year, then you still have time to recover.

Simple answer,...

get your taxes filed for the furniture store income pronto,...

if already done, show them your filings,...

if not already done, you will likely find out you owe taxes plus,...

you are not liable for what the furniture store did or did not comply with,...

you do not run their books, you only run your own,...

your new job in the well paying nuclear sector will help you with your tax bills,...

any tax dodging on your part, perceived or actual, is a trustworthiness issue,...

and can allow the utility to stop your application cold,...

your choice from here on,...

been there, dun that,... the doormat to hell does not read "welcome", the doormat to hell reads "it's just business"

if you file and fix then you keep it civil with the IRS et al,...

if you do otherwise you open yourself to criminal issues with the IRS et al,...

the utility is not okay with criminal tax issues,....

I made less than $600 a month. I was paid in cash and only worked one or two days out of the weekend. The lady thats helping me told me that I cant get a reference saying I worked there so I have no idea what to do. I also have no idea if I can rven talk about the furniture store in my interview. I have no criminal charges or anything like that on me.

A bit of a reminder:


Forum Rules

4. Please learn to be respectful, tolerate and support each other.  NukeWorker.com's goal is to help others, not see how many people we can annoy. Do not initiate arguments or tension. This will only cause the triggering of other members and make this site less professional.

   It would be nice if senior experienced posters were more mature and patient with those just starting out. Try to remember what it was like when you were new to this business and treat them the way you would have liked to have been treated and not pay the BS forward.

   Maybe but we should be facilitators not gatekeepers. It is up to an aspiring Nukeworker and potential employers as to who can really make it. I have been surprised a number of times on the career outcome of subordinates and co-workers who exceeded my expectations.

If you can't say something nice constructive ...  ;D

Yeah really.  This guy is just asking  for advice.  He didn't ask anyone to help him move.

Your job at the furniture store only matters because the nuke plants have to verify the vast majority of what you spent your time doing after graduating HS.  They don't like holes in your resume not explained by unemployment due to lack of work. 

Hopefully you didn't work without paying taxes and then tell the world about it here on this forum.

Actually he received opinions then said he doesnt know what to do. He wants his hand held. The nuke industry does not hold hands

Sure it does.  Look at all of those procedures that hold our hand, instead of expecting us to think.
