    I recently started a weekend job as a waitress at a restaurant. However, the restaurant industry is not what I hoped it would be. Even when training as a hostess the first day, I got overwhelmed by the traffic and multi-tasking. I worked at Starbucks and even when busy, things were manageable due to there being a line. (I told one of my managers that i have Asperger's and doing these kind of multi-tasking tasks is overwhelming for me and he said he was willing to help, but still I think it's overwhelming). I have an interview at a fast food place very soon. I work a full-time job (with health benefits) during the week so I am not worried about being without any money and I don't plan on mentioning at my interview that I work at this restaurant. I am wondering any ideas on how to quit soon.

  • Am I lazy if I can't physically handle working a fast food job?

    I an 19, a college student, and recently got a job working at a fast food place. I ended up quitting after 3 days because all it was much for me to handle, and my whole body hurts after work.

  • I got hired at a part time job for school and basically its taking up a full time job ! What do I do?

    I quit my full time job to go back to school but I still needed a part time job...well it basically turned into a full time because the manager "needs me". I gave her a chance after I told her Im going to school, but she keeps overbearing me with more hours which I dont want to take?

  • Will my manager be mad if I quit my job after 2 days?

    Dear manager, “I no longer desire to work at your restaurant anymore because I don’t want this job to prevent me from getting into law school. I need more time to focus on my grades to maintain a high GPA.” I have only worked there for 2 days. Will he understand?

  • Anyone else have customers who lick their fingers before grabbing money?

    I work in fast food and I see this all the time. I usually ask them to hold on so I can get a glove; I can’t really risk getting sick because my wife has a very low immune system and can catch anything I get very easily. Today someone did that and I got a glove as usual, this time she asked why. I told her it’s for... show more
    I work in fast food and I see this all the time. I usually ask them to hold on so I can get a glove; I can’t really risk getting sick because my wife has a very low immune system and can catch anything I get very easily. Today someone did that and I got a glove as usual, this time she asked why. I told her it’s for certain situations. She came back up, ordered something else, and licked her fingers AGAIN before getting her money. She asked again why I did it and I simply told her to avoid spreading germs when anyone licks their fingers for money because that can cause different illnesses. Her reaction? She flipped out because we “give change all day and do things in the back.” I tried explaining we have to wash our hands before we do anything different which is how we prevent getting people sick.

  • What does it mean when a job that you already interviewed for gets reposted?

    Best answer: Probably the ad was placed for a certain period of time, you got in early and the ad is still running. I had the same situation and this was the answer. Oh I got the job.

    I am a current nursing student at my university so my schedule is pretty intense. But I need a part-time job, as usual, to get by. So far the two places I have narrowed it down to are Cheesecake Factory or Chipotle. I have job offers from each. Cheesecake Factory: I would be hired as a baker, making minimum wage ($10 here). With the prospects of one day moving my way up to serving. Chipotle: Team member making just about the same ($10.50). I am more so concerned with how flexible each company usual is with students, how they treat their staff and etc etc. I have a high stress schedule already, so if I can minimize the drama in my life, I will.

  • What do i do if I think my employer is paying men more?

    I'm 18 and work as a waitress at a company that owns a few hotels, nothing nationwide just local.

    I'm 18 and work as a waitress at a company that owns a few hotels, nothing nationwide just local. Anyway I had worked there for about 6 months when a boy i know the same age as me started working there. It came up in convo what we got paid and he told me he got paid more, 50p more per hour. I thought that was strange and asked another guy the same age as us who had stared working as well and he said he got paid more than me as well. When I asked my manager about it he freaked out, accused me of blaming me and then made me apologise to him for being paid less. He said a mistake was made and my pay was put to the same as the boys. A few months later a girl friend of mine started working and she told me how much she got paid, which was less than the boys and me and what i got originally. I don't want to go to the manager again because he freaked out so much and pretty much told us we weren't allowed to say to each other how much we got paid. But I don't think it's a coincidence the boys just happened to get paid more then us.
