  • Should I quit my job if I’m crying everyday because of it?

    Best answer: Is it that you dislike your job so much or that you can't have lunch with your friends and that's what you're supposed to be doing at your age. What kind of better job do you think you can get when you turn 18? Do you already have something lined up for when you turn 18? Do you think you can find a... show more
    Best answer: Is it that you dislike your job so much or that you can't have lunch with your friends and that's what you're supposed to be doing at your age.

    What kind of better job do you think you can get when you turn 18? Do you already have something lined up for when you turn 18? Do you think you can find a job in one week after you turn 18?
    Did you like your old jobs better? What were they? Are you looking for an office job? What do you think you can do that can match your skills?

    Does your school have any type of placement program or internships?
    Don't be afraid to work with a temp agency - they can help you find a permanent job (they don't all do temp jobs.) They might also be able to teach you some skills to get a better job.

    If you have something lined up in two weeks after your birthday then it's not a big deal if you quit now or wait the two weeks.

    Do some self reflecting - is it really the job, or other factors. What are your resources for finding a new job that you haven't tried. Go ask at your local library - they're not a job placement agency, but they might be able to point you in the right direction to some government resources.

    If a job is making you miserable then yes for health reasons you should quit.
    Also a teenager having 3 jobs isn't a big deal. When you get older you don't need to list all your teenage jobs on your resume (unless they might be relevant to what you are applying for.)

  • Would it be stupid of me to quit my job because of this?

    Best answer: That is correct. Your dad is right. Stick it out. Don't do anything to add to your exhaustion like go to parities or mess around with your mindless buddies. Go to bed immediately and sleep soundly and wake up refreshed and ready to hit it again. Do you know what cutlery is? Do you know the other name for... show more
    Best answer: That is correct. Your dad is right. Stick it out. Don't do anything to add to your exhaustion like go to parities or mess around with your mindless buddies. Go to bed immediately and sleep soundly and wake up refreshed and ready to hit it again. Do you know what cutlery is? Do you know the other name for the prongs on a fork? It is TINES. That is right. TINES with an N. Do you know how the knife should face the fork when you set the table? The blade of the knife faces the fork. Spoon goes first, the fork to its right and the knife to the right of the fork. Learn this terminology because you can tell your other bus boys to NEVER put their hands on the tines of a fork, the bowl of a spoon or the blade of a knife. Touch the cutlery only by the stem of each utensil. Long live us BUS BOYS !!!

    About a week ago, i applied for a job online for a management and consulting company. I didn't think I'll get a call back because i ZERO experience in that field. But for some strange reason, i did and the recruiter scheduled me an interview with their executive. I was told to dress professional, which i did, the interview went okay but it was kind of quick. The executive asked me a few questions and explained the different positions and opportunities with their company. He told me he'll call me for an second interview if they were interested. I was pretty sure i wasn't getting a call back, but surprisingly, i did. He told me this interview will be a more in depth interview and I'll be shadowing some of the employees. He also told me to dress business professional(suite&tie). That's where my little problem comes in. I do not own a suit because I've never had to wear one because I've worked in a warehouse since i was 18 (I'm 22 btw). All i own are a pair of dress shoes, 2 pair of dress pants and 2 dress shirts and 3 ties. I went shopping for suits and realized how pricy they were. I immediately got discouraged because if i got the job, that's how I'll have to dress most of the time and buying a suit is not quite in my budget at the moment but i really want the job. Should i just spend the money or just cancel the interview?

    I started my new job at sainsburys 5 weeks ago and recieved my first pay last friday. However after calculating my hours I have noticed its around £140+ short. I believe this is because they made an error on the timesheet and i havent been listed as working saturdays. My supervisors also are lazy and make no effort to mark my name down. My manager is nice but i dont want to appear greedy by telling her they owe me money but £140 is a whole weekend of work that i would've showed up and not been paid for. This is my first Job so i dont know how to tackle it. Thank you so much in advance

    I'm a recent grad, almost a year out of school, and I don't have too much experience so I've been having trouble finding work. I finally got an offer from a company, but it has horrible reviews on Glassdoor. Basically they tend to hire recent grads or desperate people and underpay them, have extremely poor management, and no room to climb any sort of career ladder. I'm thinking I could just work for the company for like a year to get my foot in the door, and then switch to a better paying job once I have more experience. Or should I keep searching for a better job now so that I don't have to spend a year in misery?

    I work in human resources and I was approached by our VP of Finance regarding the payroll opening we have (payroll reports into finance at my company, not HR). I took a few days to consider it then decided against it. I told him yesterday (Thursday) that I was really appreciative of his consideration but I didn't feel qualified enough. Now I've been reconsidering and I think I'm up for the challenge of learning something new. I want to talk to him on Monday to tell him I'd like to be reconsidered but I'm not so sure if that's a good idea. I don't want it to backfire on me. Do you have any advice?

    I am a corporate professional with 10 years experience. I joined a company today and was interviewing an entry candidate who asked for coffee the usual protocol is to direct him to the office pantry. My colleague from the team who is a young kid but has been with the company longer just told me to get the candidate coffee! I have worked in big companies never have come across something like this. I mean I don’t have problem preparing coffee for a candidate but I am an HR Manager and I don’t think an HR Manager interviewing a candidate makes coffee for a candidate! I would have directed the candidate to the coffee pantry. I am planning to talk to this colleague tomorrow for this. Just let me know I am doing the right thing. How should I tell him so that he doesn’t get offended.
