Now that the economy is bouncing back again, there is good and bad news. The good news is that companies are hiring. The bad news is: the same ones you didn't want to work for before are you still don't want to work for.

 

Watch out for these 10 warning signs of a dead-end employer.

1) Employers with morale campaigns like "We're The Best" and baseball caps that say "Reach for the Stars." Employees paid enough money don't need morale campaigns.

 

2) Offices that are a sea of particle board cubicles with a few ostentatious glass offices, also known as Floor Plan Feudalism. The only time you will see the inside of one of the offices is on your last day.

3) Companies with employee parking lots that are full at 6:30 AM and 6:30 PM. With the same cars! Employees aren't working 10-hour shifts because they like the cafeteria food.

4) Employers that push pizza parties and company games like volleyball because they want to think you're happy like Dylan's Maggie's Farm. ("Sing While You Slave!") Forced fun is an insult -- you can choose your own friends -- and psychological harassment.

 

5) Companies with signs in the employee kitchen that say "Your Mother Doesn't Live Here; Clean Up After Yourself" and "Dear Person Who Stole My Cheese: I   Know Who You Are." These are the people you will be working with. Think about it.
