I would say policies scale based on the size of your own role/responsibility and just how good your employer is. My previous employers have...

This. Also I find Accor to be the best for Australia due to having hotels bloody everywhere here and overall spend counts to status as...

One has you spending money, the other has you not spending money? I've never spent my own money for the job. My employer always covers all...

If it's what you signed on for, then yes it's part of the job. If you're getting a high salary then great. Similarly if you sign on for a...

Yep, if it's upfront then there's really no argument. If it was lumped on then OP needs to talk to his employer. My current employer does...

I don't know about OP's job, but I (profanity) love my job and I'm paid pretty well for it (in my opinion). I don't calculate my hourly...
11/10/2019 - 10:05
No. You're paid to do what it says in your contract. My contract says "a typical work week is 37.5 hours" but it does not state anywhere...

I used to do something similar too. Keep the profit and buy nice toys. Was fun days.

Sorry, I must be using different definitions since I am terrible at tax. Among my colleagues and industry, we use "cash allowance" as when...

Thanks! Didn't know this and I've dropped down to Hertz 5 star even though I'm at high tier status with Qantas and Accor, so I can use this...
10/10/2019 - 23:47
Because it's part of the role. If you don't like it then you find another job. I've worked from 6am until 12am before without overtime...

Never ever spend your own money on your employment.
10/10/2019 - 23:32
Is it $40 cash allowance or reimbursement? If it's reimbursement then that's really low. Even as cash it's pretty low, basically $10 for...

No overtime? Welcome to the world of salaried positions. If it's part of your job it's part of your job. If you knew about it before hand...

I have WD40 dry PTFE and only use it for external hinges. I find Inox does way better for internal hinges where I do not need to worry...

This. Every internal door hinge of mine has been sprayed with Inox, and it makes a huge difference. I wish I knew about Inox when I was a...

I use Inox for most general day to day applications. For purposes where there is exposure to salt water, or for long term storage of...
16/09/2019 - 15:12
About $10 at Bunnings. Also needs far fewer applications than WD40 since it actually sticks around longer term. Also excellent to oil your...

Nomatter how cheap it gets, don't use WD40 Use Inox. Far superior and Australian made too. WD40 is junk.

Check with your home insurer. I backed into my sister's car ~15yrs ago when we were both living with the parents. Home insurer covered it....

My work policy is to book flex for flights like these.
30/07/2019 - 15:35
I dont think so, since RTW is from Oneworld, not Qantas
12/06/2019 - 14:09
Inox is awesome. Throw away your wd40 and buy this. Also excellent as gun oil

OP was constantly negged because they kept blaming the airline instead of admitting any sort of guilt. And OP also was very slim on details...

Pretty much. IMO, upgrading to business on such small flights isn't worth it. I haven't even bothered to upgrade from business to First...

I believe you can book as they come out.
01/06/2019 - 21:43
For 3, you would need to book a year in advance. The same amount of seats are available to RTW as to normal redemption. If you have status,...
