    I'm 22 and graduating college in May. I've worked several odd jobs and part time positions in the past, however my current part time job as a cook has driven me nigh crazy. I struggle frequently at the job and it doesn't help that my coworkers aren't patient enough to even train me to do basic things. It's a vicious cycle: I struggle at something that they won't teach, I ask for help, I get chastised and so on. My mental health and grades have been declining ever since I started this job 4 months ago. Should I simply quit and not give notice?

  • Why do workplaces make it hard for people to get jobs?

    They all want experience or college degrees. Fast food or Walmart jobs are only other options.

  • What’s an occupation that’s a lot more difficult than people think it is?

    Best answer: Working in a mental health clinic in any capacity. Though a rare event, after a client commits suicide their file is seized and examined very carefully for mistakes. Your career may be on the line while you grieve the death of someone you may have gotten to know quite well. "Cold sweat" incarnate.

  • Do you think it’s wrong for a potential employer so say you have to have trimmed nails, have immunizations/flu shots, or they won’t hire you?

    So I went in for a job interview and got the job but then during training/orientation they have me fill out paperwork and they want to have my doctors info, all my immunization paperwork, have current flu shots and TB testing and other contagious testing as well as have trimmed short nails. I am against going to doctors, and getting any kind of immunization, I have been like this for 20 years. I do not agree with immunizations. The nail thing isn’t too big of a thing but kinda controlling to me. It was a healthcare job but I already have a part time healthcare job in which I don’t have to get immunizations or anything and no one has gotten sick from me. What do you think? They wouldn’t even accept my belief that immunizations are wrong for me.

    I am 33 years old, and since i was 18 I have worked in small computer repair shops fixing desktop computers. Replacing hard drives and power supplies, motherboards, RAM upgrades, et cetera. Windows re-installs are what we do most often. However for the average person, the type of person who would ask for computer help, the desktop computer is disappearing. The only people who seem to use traditional desktop computers are the people who wouldn t NEED help replacing a hard drive or reinstalling an OS. Business has been extremely slow, and my boss is pushing 60 and I see my job ending shortly. I have no formal education, I taught myself everything I know. I have looked at computer jobs online, and all I see is positions being an IT admin, and they want people with experience in Microsoft Office 365 and Azure, and Active Directory. I m not a software / admin guy. I am a hardware guy. Come to me to replace your video card, or mother board. Come to me to get your IRQ for your Sound Card configured or the proper baud rate set for your modem. Don t come to me for all that newfangled software crap. I see my career ending and I am only 33. Is my life over now? I have Asperger s and taking a retail job would be futile, I d get fired in a week. I don t want to go to school to learn a new skill because I am extremely lazy and just like coasting like Ive been doing since age 18. What should I do?

    Employment follow up. As I have posted before, after working for a major telecommunications company for the past 2+ years as a contract employee my assignment will be over at the end of the year because of a hiring freeze. There’s no hiring freeze because the company just brought on a bunch of new employees. Even though 2 people have left this dept there’s not room in the budget to bring me on perm. The offer was extended to me a year ago to remain as a full employee but 6 months later after I applied the offer was pulled and I was told when my last day was. Ok, the tasks that I’m doing now will be spread out between the other 7 or 8 people on the team and honestly, they don’t want it. When I was doing the task the queue would be no more than 10 or 15 cases. Now that they have taken it from me it’s grown to well over 100. My manager sent me an inner-office ping this morning to say, “Please help clear out the Seasonal cases. I need you to produce the stellar numbers like you did in the past.”

    I have a job interview next week. Morning is phone interview and then they have me come in for on site. This is for a part time night house keeping job at a hospital. I have a planned cruise next year that is already bought and paid for. I will be out in July for 10 days. It's long way out but what if they hate it anyway that I won't be there. Should I tell them on the phone just in case they don't want me just for that reason or should I wait until the on site interview?

  • Can an employer ask you for your age?

    Best answer: Yes, if they have a reason. For example, you must be 21 or over to sell alcohol, 18 or over to sign for deliveries, or 16 or over to operate certain machinery.

  • If I put in a two weeks notice, can my employer make me work longer?

    I put in a two weeks notice and my employer scheduled me for three weeks... can they do that? I quit for a reason and I feel that they can’t schedule me longer than the two weeks. I put it in writing on the 6th and scheduled me until the 27th.

    I have been volunteering for a very long time now at a business in the community I started volunteering because I could not find any paying work. I went on many interviews and had not been hired, so I decided that volunteering would add a little more to a resumé. There was eventually some positions opened and I applied and interviewed. I attended a first come first serve interview and waited from 8 am and wasn't seen until almost 2 pm, and then I was placed sixth on the list of possible applicants, but was never offered a position. Others were hired instead, even temps were brought in during the process. I showed that I can go above and beyond as I waited to hear back if I would be hired on. I am still volunteering, though until recently not as much as I had been before. I am a college student and I will be going full time in the next semester so I will need to end my volunteering. I had the illusion that I could be apart of the team. However, I have become very uncomfortable with one employee who has been there for a long time now for some months now and I would like to just walk away. I feel as though it is more stress than its worth. I can't see myself moving forward if I stay. I need to leave the position soon, but I am nervous about how to do so. I wanted to just call and resign from there as it is not the easiest to stop and talk to the volunteer manager all the time. I want to end on good terms so that the applications I continue to fill will be good enough.
