Sloth: Can't someone else do it?

1/15/2019
More
Sloth isn't just an animal. It's also one of the deadly sins. Who knew? Listen to this episode to find out what sloth means in the workplace and the best/worst examples of it. We'd go into more detail, but honestly we're too lazy to do so. We were hoping the episode description would write itself. Don't be lazy; listen, rate, and subscribe to Work Trap!

Greed! What is it good for! Absolutely everything! Your lovely and very good looking hosts discuss the types of greed we experience in the workplace.

Lust: Dip your pen in the company ink

12/25/2018
More
Welcome to season 2! Each episode will revolve around the 7 deadly sins and how they relate to the workplace. The first one is lust. We discuss different types of lust, if it's good (it is), and our favorite examples. A sample of our discussions: what is lust, have you lusted for anyone, what's your best office romance experience, where does lust end and harassment begin, what's the meaning of life, is there a god, are we all going to hell, is Excel 365 better than Excel 2010, and so...

Folks, it's the season finale! Yes, we have seasons. Yes, we'll be back in a couple of weeks. In this episode we discuss people who stay at their job too long, and why you shouldn't do that. We'll tell you how to get out of that rut, as well. We also talk about how to relax and unwind after work. Harry admitted to having a drinking problem, we think? Eddy hates Ja Rule. Make sure you listen to the very end, there's a delightful...

Dear Margaret, Wash your hands. Warm regards, Everyone.

11/27/2018
More
This one's all about work etiquette (sure hope I spelled that right). We debate if you should wash your hands in the bathroom, how long you can stare at a guy in the urinal next to you, and so on. How should you send e-mails; or should you send them at all? Finally, we discuss the dos and don'ts of using social media at work. Hint: delete facebook, hit the gym, lawyer...

Why I love my job

11/13/2018
More
So, this is an odd one for us. We have a guest on this episode talking about things he loves about his job. We end up going on a tangent and start talking about AI and machine learning... Also towards the end of the episode we almost have an epiphany and realize that we may actually *like* our jobs. We promise to never do this again.

Personality is key

11/8/2018
More
As the title says, personality at work is key. Is the way we are at work the true us? Does the previous sentence make sense? Can you make friends at work? All of these questions are somewhat explained in this episode. Twitter: https://twitter.com/worktrappod Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/worktrappod/

A Call With A Recruiter

10/30/2018
More
We're back in the studio (dining room) and we've got a recruiter with us to teach us the tricks of the trade. You'll find out how to prepare for a phone interview (don't sleep in), how to get to the in-person interview, and much much more. Harry ended up hijacking this episode and he wouldn't let anyone else talk, so you'll have to hear his dumb laugh a few times. We deeply apologize for that inconvenience.

Let's talk about your performance

10/23/2018

We finally found someone to join the show as a guest! During this one hour session we'll not only berate the guest for not bringing alcohol and snacks, but we'll also discuss performance management, underperforming employees, and finding qualified candidates.

10/16/2018
More
In this episode we focus on the office environment. Topics include office politics, dress code, and the office layout. Due to the nature of the content we had to beep out some audio to protect the listeners from our stupidity.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years

10/9/2018
More
Well, this is a loaded episode! It's all about finding a job: creating a resume, applying, interviewing, and the best way to eat a pizza! Spoiler alert: applying for a job pretty much sucks, almost as much as a phone interview.
