  • How Should I Quit My Job?

    I started working at a new job about 5 weeks ago and I hate it. The job is inconsistent with both the scheduling and the job duties. I am planning on staying for another 2-3 weeks before I quit, so that I could put on my resume that I worked at this job until June. I want to know how should I quit this job? Should... show more
    I started working at a new job about 5 weeks ago and I hate it. The job is inconsistent with both the scheduling and the job duties. I am planning on staying for another 2-3 weeks before I quit, so that I could put on my resume that I worked at this job until June. I want to know how should I quit this job? Should I tell the supervisor directly to their face, should I send an email, or should I just stop coming in? Any suggestions/ advice on what I should do regarding this job are welcome. P.S. I have already made up a good excuse in my head as to why I am quitting; I am going to say that I am moving to another city due to an uncle being sick. I live in Nevada if anyone wants to know.

  • How do I get a job when I've never had one before?

    I've been trying to get a job ever since I turned 15. I'm 17 now btw. And I'm a male, so that doesnt help any. For 2 years I've applied to every location in my area since I have no vehicle transportation, i can only walk. I'm in a cyber highschool so I have all day to work. Every year I reapply... show more
    I've been trying to get a job ever since I turned 15. I'm 17 now btw. And I'm a male, so that doesnt help any. For 2 years I've applied to every location in my area since I have no vehicle transportation, i can only walk. I'm in a cyber highschool so I have all day to work. Every year I reapply to places but with no avail. I now no longer have a phone because my parents cant afford it and neither can I. I'm turning 18 here in a few months and I cant live with my mother forever. What, am i supposed to go homeless in life? I have no work expirience or references. I dont even have any friends to get me a job, back in public school everyone hated me for being the new kid. I was the new kid for all of middleschool, even though it was the same school each year. If i cant get a job im probably just going to off myself at 18 because i refuse to live homelessly

  • Can I ask for a transfer before officially starting work at a job?

    I got a job at a office Depot and I have a orientation soon but the location of the store is too far away from home for me to consistently go full time. I already had to reschedule my orientation because I can't drive and getting there is iffy.

    I was hired about two months ago at this place. I had very minimal hours for about two months because the boss was waiting for people to leave the company. As soon as those people left, my hours started picking up to where I needed them to be. I have a lot of hours and I have more responsibilities than a regular sales associate. Anyways, lately I feel like I'm being taken advantage of. I have a boss that I have not liked since day 1. He is late in the morning and today, he was trying to cut out early; which would have left me alone in this store for about 4 and a half hours. He is constantly complaining about the way he is feeling and just seems weird. Claimed he was not sick but was putting on this show today pretending not to feel well. He cuts my time quite often at work by making me come later or take longer breaks, etc. The problem is that he is placing too much responsibility on me. For instance, I like to share my work (like do half and half) but he is expecting me to stay about an hour after closing to do three different tasks which consist of transforming the entire front of the store, tagging things twice, slashing prices, etc. all in one day. He also told me to write a note and tell my coworker tomorrow something like he kept dropping all of these things all at once. I get overwhelmed enough because I am usually alone in the store some hours. This boss is trying to pile everything onto me and saying I should be finishing. What should I do?

It's also something that I would love doing on the side whilst I am looking for work.

  • I cannot read and understand my business class or any subjects I do, what is some advice?

    Best answer: Tell your parents that you need a tutor. They should be open to it considering your grades. Nobody is going to hire you without a high school diploma and if you have just that and nothing else, all you will qualify for is, generally, fast food. You can't live on minimum wage.
