Part of the capstone is a group project with five other people.
I am one of the leads a long with another individual. Our group involves 3 other individuals of which I acts as a director and the other two, work under her.
For the last 4 weeks ( maybe 6), the second lead has sent the other team mate ( director) the required paperwork to move the project forward. This team mate will review the material last minute, show up unprepared and ask questions that could have been asked had they reviewed the material. Normally this would not be something I get myself worked over but, this is my capstone: my final grade to pass.
Every check in with our professor we are to provide a briefing of our progress, etc. Similar to a work related meeting, except this is a class project.
As mentioned, the last few check-ins with our professor the team mate will come unprepared and ask questions that could have been asked and answered before our meet. Last week our professor set us a side and said that we seemed unprepared. Our presentation 3 other team members were fine, but we need to work better and assist our team mate acting as director. I Expressed to our professor that as leads we provide the information well in advance but the other member doesn’t seem to take action. He will say he received it, have. I questions and has i fact, missed 2 calls as a team.
Somehow I feel that our professor feels that it’s us ( the leads) need to push this member along. Although it’s a team effort, I do not think it’s correct that we nurture this behaviour or that we keep babying someone who should ( at this point in the game ) understand what’s expected.
long story, I know. I suppose what I am seeking is guidance on how to deal with this person as well as letting my professor know that we have done enough in terms of proving the material, etc but he doesn’t seem to care.
I am very worried that I will not walk because of this.

Company is asking us to go back into the office after 3 years.
We have done very well remotely. We have no office space but the owners seem eager to push for staff to work from an actual office.
how would you navigate away from that ? What would you propose and say if you felt it was unnecessary given how well your team has worked?

what are some signs a temp agency is trying to push the position on to you?
I set up a call with the recruiter and I felt the whole call was basically asking me repeatedly if I want the role. I didn’t get a formal job description and seems they want to know my intent by having me sign the letter of commitment. This is a government contract job. So I don’t have much experience in dealing with these things. Any advice ? The contractor who is supposed to call me for next steps will call on a weekend and not a weekday. I feel this whole process is being rushed.

I filed a complaint with HR.
I was immediately removed from the schedule , and HR told mgmt to remove me for another month until concerns with boss get resolved and the situation blows over. Mgmt is calling it "HR Compliance." Ive stayed in contact about return to work. Found out Mgmt would like to transfer me. I asked about working at original location and was told bc HR Compliance there are very few shifts available. I asked when will it (complaine) will be over and have been ghosted.

Hi all, I have a dilemma and can use some sound advice.
I got to interview for a great opportunity (I was laid off in Feb, so have been in the hunt for a while) I think I will get this role bc of my experience and bc the recruiter told me the person hiring saw my resume and called him on Memorial Day to get me in the phone.
The job is what I used to do so I'm sure I will excel. The problem is, it's hybrid night and weekends.
I can go into the office no issues on Fri and Sat night but, because I have a 3 year old, I can't do the other nights bc my husband also works nights and we would have different days of going in.
While he would be able to help with our kid, I'm afraid they may give me a hard time and I haven't yet had the 2nd interview to be able to disclose it.
My question, what is the best way to bring this up? I really want and need this job so I don't want to pass it up. Just extremely nervous about it all.
Thanks in advance!
