    I'm 22 and graduating college in May. I've worked several odd jobs and part time positions in the past, however my current part time job as a cook has driven me nigh crazy. I struggle frequently at the job and it doesn't help that my coworkers aren't patient enough to even train me to do basic things. It's a vicious cycle: I struggle at something that they won't teach, I ask for help, I get chastised and so on. My mental health and grades have been declining ever since I started this job 4 months ago. Should I simply quit and not give notice?

  • Should I still give an employee a bonus?

    I will be giving out bonuses soon, and i have an employee who will be quitting to start a new job next month. The employee is very dependable and hard working. Just wondering if its practical to still give them a bonus if they are quitting soon. They worked the whole year.

  • Why won't my previous employer disclose basic questions about my employment record with them?

    I worked for an employer a couple years ago, I had to move to a new town to get the job. It is a small company with less than 20 employees.

    I worked for an employer a couple years ago, I had to move to a new town to get the job. It is a small company with less than 20 employees. I was good at my job, except for the fact that it put a strain on my family back home by being gone all the time. I had a verbal altercation with an employee in one of our field offices. My supervisor sat down with me and suggested I resign because the job was putting too much stress on my family, and I agreed. She said my separation would be marked as a layoff, as she didn't want to damage my record, and I thanked her. I'm now expecting a prospective employer to do a background check on me, and there is new management at my old employer. I called them to ask about my employment record because I want to be sure a background check will come back favorably. The manager said all they can verify are dates of employment. Isn't that a little odd? I thought that even the most confidential employers would at least report reason for separation and re-hire eligibility, but the current manager said they can't even reveal that. That job did involve federal oversight in certain areas... but I'm wondering if that verbal altercation has come back to haunt me, or the HR manager is telling me the truth.

    so im typing this because idk what to do, before i get to deep into this i just want to state that im not like happy for what i did, anyways, i worked in retail a long time and switched through three different retail stores, i eventually began to hate working in retail and wanted something more hands on and active. i ended up landing a entry level job in a construction company but the problem is, i put my two weeks in at my old retail job but i hated working there so much because i just felt miserable and couldnt really even do the work without looking or sounding upset, im not a people person so interacting with customers was hard and mentally was to much for me, so on my last week of work i was suppose to work monday tuesday and friday, i ended up just not showing up the last week and i was worried that could my current employer (current because they said i got the job) contact my old retail employer, and my old retail employer say things like i didnt show up at all for my last week or stuff like that, that could potentially ruin my chance at this new job opportunity? as i said above, im not like happy or proud that i skipped work, in fact i felt bad all week, but i know for a fact that i would have felt 10x worse had i actually gone to work, i understand what i did was wrong but at the same time i just couldnt handle it anymore, it was mentally taking a toll on me, please if anyone could verify it would be great to at least have some closure

  • If I put in a two weeks notice, can my employer make me work longer?

    I put in a two weeks notice and my employer scheduled me for three weeks... can they do that? I quit for a reason and I feel that they can’t schedule me longer than the two weeks. I put it in writing on the 6th and scheduled me until the 27th.

  • What’s an occupation that’s a lot more difficult than people think it is?

    Best answer: Working in a mental health clinic in any capacity. Though a rare event, after a client commits suicide their file is seized and examined very carefully for mistakes. Your career may be on the line while you grieve the death of someone you may have gotten to know quite well. "Cold sweat" incarnate.

    So I went in for a job interview and got the job but then during training/orientation they have me fill out paperwork and they want to have my doctors info, all my immunization paperwork, have current flu shots and TB testing and other contagious testing as well as have trimmed short nails. I am against going to doctors, and getting any kind of immunization, I have been like this for 20 years. I do not agree with immunizations. The nail thing isn’t too big of a thing but kinda controlling to me. It was a healthcare job but I already have a part time healthcare job in which I don’t have to get immunizations or anything and no one has gotten sick from me. What do you think? They wouldn’t even accept my belief that immunizations are wrong for me.

    Employment follow up. As I have posted before, after working for a major telecommunications company for the past 2+ years as a contract employee my assignment will be over at the end of the year because of a hiring freeze. There’s no hiring freeze because the company just brought on a bunch of new employees. Even though 2 people have left this dept there’s not room in the budget to bring me on perm. The offer was extended to me a year ago to remain as a full employee but 6 months later after I applied the offer was pulled and I was told when my last day was. Ok, the tasks that I’m doing now will be spread out between the other 7 or 8 people on the team and honestly, they don’t want it. When I was doing the task the queue would be no more than 10 or 15 cases. Now that they have taken it from me it’s grown to well over 100. My manager sent me an inner-office ping this morning to say, “Please help clear out the Seasonal cases. I need you to produce the stellar numbers like you did in the past.”

    I have been volunteering for a very long time now at a business in the community I started volunteering because I could not find any paying work. I went on many interviews and had not been hired, so I decided that volunteering would add a little more to a resumé. There was eventually some positions opened and I applied and interviewed. I attended a first come first serve interview and waited from 8 am and wasn't seen until almost 2 pm, and then I was placed sixth on the list of possible applicants, but was never offered a position. Others were hired instead, even temps were brought in during the process. I showed that I can go above and beyond as I waited to hear back if I would be hired on. I am still volunteering, though until recently not as much as I had been before. I am a college student and I will be going full time in the next semester so I will need to end my volunteering. I had the illusion that I could be apart of the team. However, I have become very uncomfortable with one employee who has been there for a long time now for some months now and I would like to just walk away. I feel as though it is more stress than its worth. I can't see myself moving forward if I stay. I need to leave the position soon, but I am nervous about how to do so. I wanted to just call and resign from there as it is not the easiest to stop and talk to the volunteer manager all the time. I want to end on good terms so that the applications I continue to fill will be good enough.

Should I tell them on the phone just in case they don't want me just for that reason or should I wait until the on site interview?
