As the title says, I intended to start a job with a large corporation last week. They unexpectedly pushed my start date back after having my tools moved to their shop, leaving my stable job, and taking a week vacation to unpack from a recent move- a vacation where I ended up working 3/5 days because I needed the cash and I couldn’t afford to not be working, especially with the holidays etc. I had competing offers which they knew about. We agreed on a 5k sign on bonus and a 50% pay raise from my current rate. After they pushed my start back I took another offer to start immediately. Same offer but longer commute. Told the manager of the shop I was supposed to work for what was happening and why and he seemed understanding, and said it was out of his hands and an hr thing etc. we left things on decent terms. Or Atleast not bad terms. I feel this whole situation was not done in good faith on their part as their reason for pushing my start date was my background check- which I fully disclosed everything they cited in the interview and on the application. The thing is, this offer was negotiated two months before the scheduled start date, after I took a week vacation and finished my two weeks at my previous job.
So, I’ve been working at the other place for two weeks now but I just received the sign on bonus from the original shop in the mail. I’d love to cash it, my it would help my family and I tremendously tbh. Life is expensive, and mechanics aren’t exactly raking it in, but I did recently get a ton of certifications (hence the 50% raise). What are the chances I can cash this check? I’m the end I’ll probably end up taking it to them and giving it back but a fella can dream right?
Edit: the company I received the check from is fortune 200, the company I work for currently is very much not.
You should not cash that check. It was an error on their part. Return it.
You’ve got your tools back?
I’m a big fan of individual workers dealing hard with corporations, but you didn’t take this job, no way I’d try to keep that money.
Dont cash it. Its fraud. Return it because you didnt end up working for that garage. I get what youre saying about helping your family, but doing that you will land in a deep shit hole that will be a long climb back.
Don’t look for a reason to do something that is wrong. Thats part of the problem with today’s society
They’ll likely request it back anyway. Lesson learned…Don’t put in your two weeks as it can really screw you over if a job you thought you had falls through. Companies don’t care about you, look out for yourself.
Cash it but don’t spend it and wait to see if they ever come back asking for it.
Write VOID on it, tear it up, send them pictures of the destroyed check.
If you cash it – you better sign in with them – hence “sign on bonus”

Hi this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code
with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to
get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
