    Hi I'm 22 and unfortunately have just left my job due to being badly bullied by a co worker, and management doing absolutely nothing about it. I am currently looking for a new role in the same industry. However, my mind has now conjured up a new worry. The co worker that was bullying me was also looking to leave and find a new job doing the same thing (we both did the same job). The problem is, where I live there are only really 40-50 places you can work doing what I do, so the chances of running into someone you already know is reasonably high. I'm worrying now that me and my ex co-worker will unknowingly apply at the same company and become co-workers again. This co worker was throwing food at me, so I'd really like to avoid them if possible, as I'd probably end up leaving again, is this my anxiety creating these worries. The thing is, they are perfectly fine out of work, I.e. Work night outs, so I guess I could message them on Facebook and see what they're up to before I accept a new job offer. I know there is a small possibility of this happening, but am I over thinking/exaggerating it all?

What's his problem I was dressed nice and he was wearing shorts and a hoodie. I was thinking if I was a boss and I scheduled an interview I'd dress and little nicer. Is it common for employers to act like a douche during an interview? I feel like he wasted my time.

    I m a student working at a supermarket part time. I ve only been working there two months but I ve never been late and have always worked hard. I ve been given way too many hours and have asked my manager to reduce my hours which he obliged. This weekend however I still have many hours which I tried to get someone to cover one of them, but everyone I asked was very vague if they could. Anyway, I now actually have a horrible cold and to add insult to injury i am on verge of breaking up with my boyfriend. I really want to call in sick on one of my shifts, as I am actually sick for a start, and I need to catch up with uni work and just try and relax as I feel so tearful. I just feel so guilty especially considering my circumstances leading up to all my shifts - I m worried it won t look good!

    It's relevance you want to be attention-grabbing. The rest is a bit superflous, but always relevance to the post - 1st.
    I wish you well.

    Are new hires given less hours at first? Me and this girl got hired for part time and i noticed that shes getting way more hours than me (probably cuz shes a college student). My permit application signed by the manager said i would be getting 48hrs biweekly, but they posted the new schedule and for this pay period i'll only be getting around 31hrs? Do they usually give less hours for new hires or will they increase this later? Last pay period i had 37+ hrs but was missing like 7 (so originally supposed to be 44) cuz they didnt put me on the official schedule yet. This is my first job and no other place would call back so dont say work somewhere else or some thing like that. Im just confused cuz the paper said 48 but im only getting like 30, im not saying i should have those hours but yea like i said im confused

  • Can attaining to a sick relative be waived when it comes to an employee's year-end evaluation regarding his attendance record?

    Since it's not the employee's fault he was late to work or called in sick on behalf of relative, as family comes first, should he be reprimanded for his need to improve on punctuality? I know when it comes to mass transit delaying arrival, there's no excuse, as the employee should be waking up earlier... show more

I know when it comes to mass transit delaying arrival, there's no excuse, as the employee should be waking up earlier in an effort to avoid that. But with illness in the family, should several last-minute absences/lateness not count on the evaluation?

I have been on standby for 2 weeks now, my friends and girlfriend are at work from 9-6 and I occupy 1-2 hours in the day to go to the gym although the remaining time I have found to be watching TV doing absolutely nothing. I do infact get paid while at home but do you have any ideas on how I can occupy my time? Thanks
