    Can a woman go into the trades without being sexually harassed by male counterparts?

    I used to work as a waitress and I got sexually harassed very often by men. They made comments about my breasts and such. I’d imagine if I were to go into a 80% male environment, the same thing happens?

    Is it bad to quit a new job? ?

    I just got a new job. I started my second week today and I’m really hating it. This is a very intense work place. There’s no culture or camaraderie here. Some of the executives are very demanding and a bit rude. I’ve honestly never felt so bad in the beginning at any job. I had applied to 2 places and this place offered me a job first. So I told the other place the situation and unfortunately burned a bridge. This job was more pay but I just had a bad feeling in my gut before accepting this job. It’s already hard being the new person there and when I ask my colleague a question they seem so annoyed. It’s good pay but I’m so unhappy. Would it be awful to quit now? I’ve worked a week and today started my second week there.

    How do I mentally deal with the fact I will be stuck living with my parents until I’m 40?

    Due to the bad economy, covid-19, student loan debt for a major that I regret majoring in at college that has no job opportunities, and working a minimum wage job as a result, etc. when I was 18 I thought I’d be fine as long as I went to college and I majored in music theory and theatre, and when I got out into the real world with $40,000 in student loan debt, I couldn’t find a job for over 3 years and was unemployed back at home depressed, then I got a job at a restaurant as a cook, and then covid-19 hit and I lost my job and I’ve been unemployed ever since and I’m now 27 and still living at home with my parents with no job and a useless degree.

    They said I don’t have enough experience and should consider “volunteering” for their company to gain more experience ?

    Favourite answer:

    "...the company suggested I “volunteer for free.” to learn more about the position..."  That is a major red flag, as its a violation of wage and hour laws.  If this company is willing to break those laws, they are likely willing to violate others.  Look elsewhere.

    what to do if you feel stuck in a job you hate?

    I used to like my job, for maybe the first two years, now I loathe my job.  The problem is I am in my early 30s and I feel it may be too late for me to go back to school.  Also, I already have close to 100K in student loan debt.  Furthermore, my job pays very little and eats up all of my time, so if I quit (which is the only way I can follow my passion) I will only be able to survive for a couple of months.  Is there any hope?

    Do nursing homes allow their residents to go to work and come back to sleep in nursing home?

    Favourite answer:

    An actual nursing home is for people who can't take care of themselves.  These people are not going to have jobs.  You have to be a certain level of "sick" or "elderly" to qualify to be a resident in a nursing home.  

    You might be thinking of "assisted living".  Assisted living situations are usually small apartments in one larger building.   In these kinds of homes, you still live fairly independently but someone comes in and helps you with certain things or checks on you from time to time just be be sure you are fine.  In an assisted living situation, you can leave your home at any time for any reason including going to a part time job.  

    There are also "senior communities".  These are usually just apartment complexes that only allow "seniors" of a certain age to live there.  (no children are allowed to actually live in the apartments)  In a senior community, there is no one checking on you and you might even still be young enough to be working full time.  Many senior apartment communities start allowing you to live there at the age of 55 and over.

    What are some good paying jobs for an 18 year old girl?

    I’m wanting to move out sometime in the next year/year and a half and I’m trying to find a job that pays at least $15 an hour to help me save up. I’m 18 and I live in a suburban town in Texas, any suggestions for jobs that may hire someone like me with minimal experience and still pay alright?

    Can I quit a job without notice?

    Favourite answer:

    Unless you have a contract you can in theory leave today.  BUT...when future employers check references it could come back to haunt you.  It's better to tell the employer that you have been offered a job better suited to you and you'd like to leave at once but will stay for two weeks if necessary.   Most will let you go figuring a quick change is better than an uncomfortable, and unproductive two weeks.

    quitting first job?

    I got my first job at burger king that's far from my home. I pay about $24 everyday for a lyft to work. I was just offered a job at a retail store that's a 10-15 minute walk from home. I've had five shifts so far at BK and I don't know how to quit since i've never worked before. Should I tell my manager that I've got another job that's closer to home? Can I text her about quitting or should I do it in person? She's never around during my shifts so I never see her. Can I just tell an assistant manager?

    Fired from my job, any advice?

    For the last year it has been one of the best years. I have working on myself. Working out, running, about to get masters in nursing for family nurse practitioner. Recently, I have hit a major roadblock. I just got fired from my job as a registered nurse due to hippa. I’m devastated. Been working in the hospital for 5 years. Even though I’m almost finished with my degree( 4months) and not planning to work in the hospital; I didn’t want it to end it like this. Also I haven’t told my family yet. I’m am just crushed, my life has been relatively good. I rarely face any hardships. I’m just not use to this feeling. Any advice. I’m a 27 year old male. Thanks

    Your supervisor refuses to let you change your seat because you want to sit away from someone who has Covid, what should you do?

    The call center is packed with angry customer calls, lots of call representatives already quit due to COVID, less pay, more stress, etc

    You have 2 years of experience, think about quitting and have a little money saved to go on for some months but have no connections, no skills like excel or a bachelor degree.

    What is the best thing to do in this situation?

    Are there ways my ex-boss can professionally retaliate against me for sleeping with his wife?

    Favourite answer:

    The only thing I'd worry about is down the road.  If the job you left is in an industry you want to stick with, use caution with this.  The guy might have been a total d-bag to you, but that doesn't mean much.  Lots of guys are like this at work but still respected in the industry.  As for your current job, your boss sounds cool, but do you see yourself there long term?  If so, then I say go for it.

    Oh, there's one other possible exception.  Do they have kids?  I don't blame you for not caring about blowing up their marriage, but when you play a part in blowing up a family, that's very different.   IOW, I'd laugh at your story if no kids.  I would not laugh if there are.

    Question about being hired for Barnes and Noble?

    I submitted an application to work at Barnes and Noble, they only take online applications. The way their site works is to have this timeline showing the progress of your application. But so far it's been 2 weeks and it's still on the first stage. Should I call where I applied to and ask how my application, or is this just something they don't control by the store itself or something and I just have to wait?

    Any tips or advice for this? I'm waiting to see if they call me in for an interview at least
