  • Part time job gives me anxiety! should I quit?

    I just started working at walmart the other day as a cashier.

    I just started working at walmart the other day as a cashier. It's really stressful to me because it's my first job and I'm scared of taking too much time counting money, packing bags or finding the codes for the vegetables that don't have any tags... Also, the store that I work at has very few employees so most of the time, there will only be 2 or 3 cashiers so in peak hours, it's a total disaster! Sometimes, even customer service associates have to leave customer service so they can open a cash register! So, should I quit? It's my first job and I've only been there for less than a week... But it gives me so much anxiety!

  • Can i get laid off just because the company is trying to save money?

    Best answer: I think the very definition of "lay off" is because a company is trying to cut costs, or because of seasonal work, or the company went bankrupt. You can definitely be laid off if the company wants to cut costs.

  • What are your career and future goals?

    Best answer: Things to consider: 1) do you do well at mathematics? chemistry? People in the medical industry need to be good at those things. 2) Do you like to help people?

    1) do you do well at mathematics? chemistry? People in the medical industry need to be good at those things.
    2) Do you like to help people? You could try being a nurse's aid for a summer to see how you like it (or if you are okay with blood, gore, vomit, mucus)
    3) If you like being outside, hiking and camping, you might enjoy being a forest ranger or a game warden. (watch North Woods Law for ideas -- should be on YouTube)
    4) If you like animals, you might find being a veterinarian a rewarding career.
    5) If you work well with others, you might try human resources as a career.

    6) If you like travel, you might enjoy being a travel agent or a truck driver.

    7) If you like structure in your life, you might try the military. Sign up for the shortest amount of time they offer, in case you discover you don't like it that much.

  • Should I find a new job?

    Best answer: I agree with everybody who answered you. Ha ha ha But, I will go ahead and give you my two cents worth. You are 23 and in college. Okay, that's fine. No problem.

    Best answer: I agree with everybody who answered you. Ha ha ha But, I will go ahead and give you my two cents worth. You are 23 and in college. Okay, that's fine. No problem. You have worked at a shoe store for at least one full year. That is even better. You are looking good. You're building a work record that employers want to see. You are paid minimum wage. Already, you won't be able to pay rent or buy food. But, you're living at home and paying no rent and probably not paying for food? You're still looking good. The co-workers are enjoyable and some are now your closest friends. You're looking way good. Why? Because these co-workers will someday be working with you elsewhere or maybe they might be in a position of authority and be eager to hire you to work with them. They might even save you from a year or more of unemployment. So now let's look at this closely. I think that you have such peace of mind by working here and having plenty of time for your studies that you are getting a little antsy and eager for some kind of change in your regimen. If you quit this job and begin looking for another, this peace of mind is going to evaporate. Suddenly you will realize that you have barely enough time to "study." You will be flung into the void of unemployment and it will scare you. You will have lost your job and your peace of mind and the tranquility that you have right now this minute. You also will damage your work record that you have been building steadily for over a year. Now, you have dashed it to pieces. Right now, if you stay on this job you will be able to say truthfully, "I had a job all the way through college and it gave me a fabulous work record which allowed me profound prestige in order to land a beautiful job making great money when I graduated. Eventually I moved into my own apartment which was just a few blocks away from where I started my career and worked my way up to CEO of the company. So, my instincts tell me that you should find another way to appease your eagerness to find another job and put some variety in your life. You should keep your job and instead of playing with it to entertain yourself, you should instead take a quick trip on a ferry across the sound and have dinner and a movie and spend the night in a ritzy hotel and go shopping tomorrow before taking the ferry back home. You'll walk into your job with a sigh of relief and hug your co-workers and wait on your customers with a certain gusto that you have saved up on your ferry ride. In other words, just do something fun and fascinating. Keep your friends because some day they might be looking for you to join them working for an exciting company that pays $53,000 plus commissions. That is the way I see your position at this point in your life. Loved visiting with you. Bye bye.

    I'm pretty sure everyone has experienced the feeling of being lost, not knowing which path in life to take. I'm no different. In a few years, I will be an "adult." I'm currently a teenager, yet the world expects me to know what I'm gonna be. I've researched high and low on the internet but in the end, I still have no idea. So I've decided to come here for help. I know that in life, you can't always have things your way, which is why I'm prepared to work a job I hate just for money. But if it's possible, I would like to find a good paying job that I like. Therefore, I was wondering if anyone knew of a job that kind of fits my preferences: - good pay (60k~100k) - travelling (from country to country, or state to state, as long as I'm not in one place for too long) - helping others, especially the weak and needy - I enjoy catering - easy to get employed/find a job - I really enjoy the arts (I can draw and paint, I also write stories and publish them online, I can sing, etc.)
