  • My boss is overwhelming, what should I do?

    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.

    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?

  • Should I quit my job or just let them fire me?

    In short, I hate my job! The company has been going down the tubes for the last 5-6 years, layoffs left and right, people getting fired left and right--you get my drift.

    In short, I hate my job! The company has been going down the tubes for the last 5-6 years, layoffs left and right, people getting fired left and right--you get my drift. The demands are getting heavier, but no one is being paid more money. Since I saw the writing on the wall years ago, I decided to be proactive, go back to school and get an advanced degree. I graduate next Wednesday (Go me). I already secured a new job for Aug 2018 (I work in Education--Go Me!). Honestly, I was going to try to stick it out until 2 weeks before I report to my NEW job, but unfortunately, the company I currently work for decided to write me up after 14 years (how does one go from being a stellar employee to a bad one in 8 month?--its bullshit) and told me I have 60 days to turn around my performance or I would be on an extended corrective action or be fired. In short, I hate being there ever since the write up. Quite frankly, I hate going into the place knowing I have a new job. Not gonna even lie. In fact, I think my performance has probably gone down even more since I know I have a new job. That being said, I've saved and could either quit or let them fire me and wouldn't miss a beat. My real question is: The 60 days is almost up, I'm tired of going in there, do I just resign or let them clip me?For them being an asshole, Id much rather them fire me so I could use their unemployment while I sip margaritas on the beach all summer ---not gonna even lie. What do you think?

  • How does one survive on $2,000/month in Los Angeles, CA?

    I already looked at 500 different careers. There aren't any that pay well enough to live on except in computers, healthcare or perhaps a vocational trade. A friend suggested I can move into someone's garage for $500/month. Would that be possible? Advice Please

  • Can you transfer internally to HR?

    Best answer: I've been running HR departments for 25 years. In my current HR office, two employees came from other departments. In my previous employer, one came from a different department, in the one before that, three came from different departments, and the one before that, two came from different departments.

    Best answer: I've been running HR departments for 25 years. In my current HR office, two employees came from other departments. In my previous employer, one came from a different department, in the one before that, three came from different departments, and the one before that, two came from different departments. It's not at all unusual for employees to transfer into HR.

    The "ethical" reason cited to you is ridiculous: people have all kinds of personal and work relationships: a professional acts ethically within all those boundaries. It's good for a well-functioning HR department for the employees in that department to have good relationships with others in the company, and someone hired from outside will likely develop relationships with employees in departments outside of HR. I would be suspicious of any company that didn't want their HR staff to have relationships with employees in other departments.

    I started this job roughly 7 months ago. During the interview process I was told that if I took the job I would be promoted when the next spot opens up. I agreed to take the position under those terms. In my job description, I was given two jobs that I would need to do. I exceeded their expectations. A few months pass and my General Manager has mentioned that he has plans for me. He tells me he wants to put me in one of two potential positions on multiple occassions. One position is the one I asked for in the intervew, and I told him that's what I wanted. He once again agreed to have me fill the spot when it is open. I'm ecstatic and optomistic about this and continue to put in hard work and extra hours to prove my dedication to this company. Last month he hired another person who recieved the position that I wanted. He moved my desk and gave it to a seasoned employee. He said he needs me where I am at now. I explained that if this was his plan, I would have not taken the job in the first place. I feel as if I have become irreppacable in my position to this company. Not only have I exceeded the expectations that were originally given to me I took on an additional 10 different roles within the company. I took a significant amount of weight off of management's shoulders in order to prove my worth as an employee. Now I'm at a crossroads.. Should I ask for a raise? Should I throw in the towel? Give me your best advice.. Thank you, Anonymous frustrated employee.

Were the manager not to like the fact you have to schedule your work hours and will show up when you are able to, the manager has the choice to replace you with someone who will fill the hours you can't be working.

You need permission from your employer to use an office computer during lunch and if you were on company time, expect the criminal charges. Most employers are following through with those as well as firing the employee. The b........ part of it - thoroughly disgusting. How can you watch an animal be abused like that? There has to be some screws loose in your brain to want to watch that.

    Hey everybody so I want to make about £1000 before the June. But the problem is that I'll have to make it online. I know that some of you'll think 'oh why won't you find yourself a job somewhere?' Well the problem is that I was working for a month but they my mum found out and she was quite pissed off. She really doesn't want me to work and make my own money because of some of things that happened in the past. I also don't want to lie to her anymore because she's my mum and she had a tough life. Please let me know if you know where I can find something good online, I'm also 16 years old now I can't really do some stuff with easy money. Have a good day guys.
