    I’m a senior is college. I’ve been working at my current minimum wage job for the past 2 years. We get paid $8.25 plus tips which is usually like $2 a shift sometimes more. I work in an ice cream shop in my city and we get pretty busy. I’ve never really ever hit it off with my boss. I can tell I’m not the favorite. I have really good intentions and am someone who is concerned with doing what’s right. I have anxiety. I’ve never asked for more hours before because I don’t want to come off as a burden. When I first started I used to always get three days a week a year and a half ago. This week I’m working one day and next week I’m working two. First of all, this place doesn’t offer a raise. They offer to make you a trainer (I’ve never been offered this) if they like you which means you get paid 50 cents more. I’m not a trainer. There’s people who have started 5 months ago who are above me on the schedule and get WAY more hours than me and are trainers. I feel uncomfortable to ask for more hours but I need them to make my next $500 school payment. My biweekly paycheck is usually $200 and I need to save money to move out and for other things. I am unable to save any money this way. How do I ask for more hours? Should I tell them im struggling? Should I get a new job? Thank you!

    As most people I know , go to work don’t talk to anyone and just do there job . Is there anything wrong with that , I feel it’s the best way to avoid problems , to avoid anything . Silence means you just don’t want the headaches ...another reason is being I feel certain people whom I work with are fake to my face so that’s honestly another reason , but then there is no win win on either side because they assume I might be upset with them . When I’m honestly not . Everything feels awkward because I don’t talk to my boss either it all started with him because I never spoke to him so even feeling that he may say things about me to my co/workers and them putting in there input makes me very uncomfortable me and my boss we have some unresolved misunderstandings that I feel maybe can never be cleared up , he acts like there is something wrong , I feel he too is fake to me and I just can’t stand that . I come there to do my job but from what I’ve seen he is not like that to anyone else maybe he assumes I don’t like him , there could be a number of reasons what he thinks I think of him but I don’t like that makes he me feel even more uncomfortable. He’s told me he likes how I work he said many times I’m a hard worker ..when I’m eating he gets up and leaves right away . When he asks me to do something for him I really never mind doing it but it’s behind the cover how he really is towards me .

  • I worked for an alarm company in 2017 as an employee installing residential & commercial alarms. They haven’t given me work in about a year.?

    I get paid by the install. Is it legal? I’m still in their system as an employee, so they haven’t fired me.

What do you think???

    Best answer: I have the solution for you. First, you need to be a bit more strong with this Fallopian Tube. Just tell him, that there are other hobbies than paying too much attention to fellow workers.

    My roommate does not know that I know about this. Ten days ago (January 3) she found out that her work (a retail store) was closing. I accidentally found out 8 days ago (January 5) by her coworker, who let the news slip. Her coworker told me that they had 2-3 weeks (max) left on the job. My roommate hasn’t mentioned anything to me, but has made jokes about quitting her job (“I would quit my job for this dog” [at the humane society] and has made comments like “I’m excited to have the weekend off because next week is going to be busy at work” (because the stores closing down). She told me she applied to another job (which if she still had her job would be out of character for her, as she just got promoted to manager in November), and that her coworker applied to my place of work, and that our mutual friend came over one night because she needed help with her resume. It just feels a bit insulting that she thinks I can’t put two-and-two together. My roommate and I are close friends and while she isn’t obligated to tell me everything, I feel like she should give me a heads up or something since it’ll impact her financially. Should I bring it up to her? Should I wait for her to say something? I have no idea what to do in this situation. I want to help her but since she hasn’t mentioned anything maybe she doesn’t want me to know/wants to figure things out first? Any opinions or thoughts would be great!

I gave my job my two weeks notice but policy states I have to be working the last two weeks, but that is the dates of my trip. Do I have any options?

  • I have two job offers with different pay rates how do I negotiate pay for the location i want?

    Best answer: How you should negotiate depends on whether or not you're willing to take less than $23 to work at your preferred choice. If you're not willing to take less, your negotiation is easy. You politely and respectfully say that you're looking for $23. They'll either match it or they won't. ... show more
    Best answer: How you should negotiate depends on whether or not you're willing to take less than $23 to work at your preferred choice. If you're not willing to take less, your negotiation is easy. You politely and respectfully say that you're looking for $23. They'll either match it or they won't. That's a pretty big spread, so them not matching is the outcome you should expect.

    If you are willing to take less, you should have an idea as to how much less before you get to the interview. Then you can be a little fuzzier and say something like "I was really hoping to get into the low $20s." and see if they'll come up any.

    Up to you if you want to mention the other offer, but not all hiring managers react favorably when they feel like they're being forced into a bidding situation.

    I am currently employed at an office supply store and have been for around 5 months. I am 17 and this is my first job. I am thinking about not giving notice and leaving the job. It is effecting my mental health and it is a struggle to get transportation. I talked to my manager about leaving but didn’t give an official notice. If I do leave without notice do I put it on my resume for future jobs to see? I don’t want to risk giving a bad impression but I do want to make the 5 months experience valued. I also am liked at my work but they just weren’t flexible with scheduling and I stress about days I can’t make it. I guess my “official” question is, should I put a 5 month job that I left with little notice on my resume?

  • Why do be throw around the term JOB so loosely?

    These days people use the word job to describe their occupation and oftentimes get the two confused.

    These days people use the word job to describe their occupation and oftentimes get the two confused. When someone ask me what my job is I tell them I don t have one, and they look at me like I am a piece of **** or unemployed, but when someone ask me what I do for a living then I will gladly answer sales and manufacturing or online marketing. It is this stigma that people often get confused in society. A job is usually a smaller task at hand and has a smaller scope and beneath that is a task. So I do not dignify a response to someone that ask me if I have a job because why would I allow someone so naïve judge me based on a stupid *** question. If any answer I should give is my job is politically correcting naïve assholes that ask politically incorrect questions. That is my job. Never ask someone what their job is because it is insulting and stereotypical. Ask them what they do for a living or what their area of work is in. Then you can get more job specific as to what that actually entails. American society needs to really keep up on their education levels and get more rounded educations because their are a lot of ignorant out there. There, there is my rant for the day. Any HS educated dumbass learn anything....good. You re welcome.

  • Is not having medical benefits a good reason to leave a job?

    Best answer: Yes. In fact it is THE reason I left my last job. Before, if I got sick, I had to just ride it out because I couldn’t afford a doctor visit. I was very fortunate to never get injured or have a serious illness

    Best answer: Tell everyone that the people exhibited strange and suspicious behavior, that they came off as border-line criminal and you did not know their intentions but personally did not accommodate them. Then tell them that no job is worth being hurt by suspicious people and that you were hired as a a clerk not a security guard. Then ask the shoe lady why the hell it matters anyway? Is she personally liable for paying for those damned bags? They're just bags. How thoughtful of her tp put the safety of her co-worker behind some cheap plastic bags. No. I would expect no 'hero's' to fight a suspicious group of strangers over some cheapo plastic bags. Is she nuts? She really loves them there bags, ey? Gees. Maybe she was saving them all for herself. Tell her she shouldn't come in to work with a chip on her shoulder- because that's what this is. Unless she is psychotic there is no way her anxiety was over mere bags. It had to be something from outside of work- something that doesn't even involve you or the store. If she keeps it up tell your boss you suspect she may be dragging her personal problems onto the clock with her. She can obsess over her baggage at home without making others in the store miserable. Sorry for my long rant, lol. She's lucky I wasn't there. Peace and good luck. This is totally not your responsibility. Your responsibility was to NOT accommodate the bag-nappers within the limits of your power over your own station. You did just that. Anyone can see that.(I'd be a smartace and tell her that she should be happy anytime anyone wants to take any bags off her hands because she can obviously use all the help with that she can get with removing baggage from her life. LOL- Then I'd apologize later. But geez! Good times. :)

    I am about to graduate with a degree in finance. I have done just fine in school and I have maintained extracurriculars with high standing. I also work at a bank and I have come to a realization over the past year. I HATE MY MAJOR AND I HATE BUSINESS. I can’t tell you how many times I have skipped class or called in sick just so I could spend the day in the woods learning my ways around or waking up at 4 am and fishing from 5-dusk. I am going to soon start learning how to hunt for deer and I hate hate hate the idea of ever being stuck in a BS corporate job working my butt off just so I can live in an expensive area and compete with my neighbors over Christmas lights and Halloween decorations... I would like some ideas for jobs that will keep me outdoors and in the woods. Only problem is that I’m not able to keep going to school to pursue an different degree and I’m honestly exhausted from school. I could care less how much money I make as long as I can wake up every day excited to go to work. Any ideas on job options? I’ve put some thought into becoming a game warden or fish and wildlife officer. Any other options?
