    Hey y all I m 15 and I just started my first waitress job about two weeks ago and I hate it, I haven t been myself since I ve started, when I come home from work I lock myself in my room and just cry ive been extremely stressed and anxious all the time about work even if I don t work that day or work until later. I ve been diagnosed with GAD since last year and I am tired of this constant work anxiety. My managers are nice and most of the co-workers are friendly except this one older woman who stresses me out to the max and it s eating me alive, I ve been told multiple times to just wait and I ll soon get adjusted to the job but I don t know if feeling constantly depressed and sad and anxious is even worth it. Should I give a two weeks notice or just quit on the spot? thanks!

  • How to give back money to someone?

    I recently had to do work experience for a week (everyone in my school had to).

    I recently had to do work experience for a week (everyone in my school had to). It's not something that is usually paid and it's generally accepted that they are doing something for you by organising work experience rather than you helping them. At the end of this week, my "employer" gave me an envelope with some money in as a way of saying thank you for helping out. I kind of said you shouldn't have and you didn't need to and that sort of thing but he said that I'd done work for him and I'd done it well so he'd pay me like he would anyone else. After this i accepted thinking it would probably just be 10 or 15 pounds and a little card. I didnt realise until i got home that he gave me £100. I want to return it as i don't feel like i can accept it but i don't know how/what to say. I was going to send him a card saying thank you and with an explanation and the money in. Any advice? Do you think this would be rude?

  • Can an employer force you to take a holiday?

    My job is kinda the only thing keeping me happy and tbh I'm kinda depressed, work is the only place I can set aside my problems and replace it with my daily objectives. They say I need to take a week off but i dunno if I can handle that, 4 days drove me utterly insane.

  • Y’all I hate gettin up for work I hate my job .so much . Any suggestions on how to get out of bed or to love the job I hate?

    Best answer: First, separate how much is just the morning, and how much is the job. I'd get up, have a good cup of coffee, and breakfast before heading off to work. When I skipped breakfast, things seemed worse than they were. Second is to see if the other areas of your life are happy. That can spill over, too. ... show more
    Best answer: First, separate how much is just the morning, and how much is the job. I'd get up, have a good cup of coffee, and breakfast before heading off to work. When I skipped breakfast, things seemed worse than they were.

    Second is to see if the other areas of your life are happy. That can spill over, too. Personally, when I had a girlfriend, everything in life just glowed, including going to work.

    And of course, you might want to look for another job, in case it's the job, itself. Once in my life, pretty much everything was good, but I tried telemarketing. In that case, it was the job. It was basically doing something that people don't want. But make sure you have another job lined up before you quit your present one. Still gotta pay the bills.

  • Am I being fired?

    Best answer: It's cheaper for them to keep you on the rolls and not use you than to fire you and risk that you'll apply for unemployment. They'll probably keep this up until you just quit.

I am a hispanic woman with a bachelors, management experience and 2 years experience at the store. my GBL just offered a manager position to a coworker who has only been there 5 months and has 0 work experience. She is not a sales associate, she works in the back with operations and sits infant of a commuter. Mind you, she is white. I am not racist and I really like the girl but I know that is discrimination and favoritism.

  • Should I still apply to a job that requires applicants to commit working there long term if I am unsure I could stay long term?

    I applied to a few government jobs that pay $36k-$50k a year, but the application/hiring process for these jobs can take a few months as there are multiple steps. Getting an interview isn't guaranteed. For the mean time, I am in need of a new job. My current job has very inconsistent hours and I can't make ends meet. I found a job that is $12/hr full-time (better hours and slightly better pay) and close to where I live, but they want applicants to commit to working there long term. I CAN commit to that right now, but I can't say that I wouldn't leave if a significantly higher paying job came a long (who wouldn't?). I am probably over thinking this, but i'd feel bad saying I could commit to something and then jumping ship later. Should I apply anyways?

Everyone tells me the only stable industries left are in healthcare, computers, fast-food or perhaps a vocational trades. I'm not that type of person. Everything else pays minimum-wage, or less than $15/hour. Around here that's half of what you need to survive on. It takes $1,000/month just to live in an apartment with 3 other people. ____ Your thoughts?

  • Is it alright to state my available day for interview in my resume?

    Best answer: You can, but they might feel you aren't willing to accommodate them. It may give them the impression you are inflexible, which may hurt you. Most people just call in sick when they interview for another job.

    Best answer: What I would suggest doing is talking to the friend and telling her how important it is that she gives notice and that it's best if she goes through with the presentation and then resigns since this was something she's worked hard on for a long time. Remind her of all the wasted time it's going to end up being that she spent preparing this presentation and how horrible she is going to look for just skipping out like that not just to this employer but furture employers as well. Future employers are going to find out that she rolled like that and they're not going to risk having someone jack them like that so they won't hire her.

    She needs to do the presentation, then resign. It's very childish and irresponsible to leave the company the way she's planning, because she's upset someone pissed her off or didn't respect her. Retaliation for "being disrespected" because she "feels slighted" is childish. If what she's planning is really going to hurt the company that bad:
    1. That's the biggest dick move ever. She's going to have a hard time getting a different job without references.
    2. She needs to think of everyone else that works there instead of her own pride which doesn't effect anyone but her. People like you! If her not doing Chicago truly can hurt the company she's not only sacrificing her own job she's throwing everyone elses job out the window too.
