Hey guys! So, the place that I'm working at JUST switched to a new system - which nobody knows how to use. A while ago, my boss sat down with me to try to get me set up in the system. One problem that I had was that, using my phone, it was telling me my username and password were wrong. So, my boss told me to sign in as a "New Candidate". When I did, it didn't register me as having applied for any jobs. Last night, I tried logging in with my computer with the original username I had used to create a profile on the site. All fixed now, so I'm signed up for Direct Deposit and should be getting my employee number in a day or so. Which means that I can clock in and out and they can keep track of the hours I work. Which also means I'll be getting paid for the work I do!

You should seriously talk to someone about how this can get fixed. You shouldn't be working for free. Talk about possibly being reimbursed for the work you're doing.

Pretty much this... Just track your work hours on paper, MAKE SURE TO HAVE YOUR BOSS SIGN IT, and get it added to the system later. If the business is legit, they shouldn't even question it and do it immediately. If they refuse, get the hell out of there because that business is illegal and will probably try to screw you over again in the future.

They have no right to make you work without pay. You shouldn't technically have to work until they technically hire you. I mean no offence, but I hate the word technically. GAAH, tiny brother uses it for everything. "Technically, I didn't feed your lunch to the dogs, it fell" "Technically, I've only spent 7 hours on games today. TV doesn't count." Hope you enjoyed the rant. If not, get a milkshake.

If you're technically not hired, then you technically have no job which means you technically are not obligated to do any work. If you really want the job then you should get something in writing that states you'll be paid for the work that you did, even if you don't get hired, assuming they'll be benefiting from it. Otherwise, you might end up getting screwed over because you'll have done the work for them and then they can easily claim you're not an employee, etc. and not properly compensate you, or hire you in the end.

Document everything! You are working there, and went through the process of being hired. They will have to legally pay you. Don't fall for them saying they don't! It's their fault, not yours, for those technical issues.
