    I just started working at walmart the other day as a cashier. It's really stressful to me because it's my first job and I'm scared of taking too much time counting money, packing bags or finding the codes for the vegetables that don't have any tags... Also, the store that I work at has very few employees so most of the time, there will only be 2 or 3 cashiers so in peak hours, it's a total disaster! Sometimes, even customer service associates have to leave customer service so they can open a cash register! So, should I quit? It's my first job and I've only been there for less than a week... But it gives me so much anxiety!

  • Can i get laid off just because the company is trying to save money?

    Best answer: I think the very definition of "lay off" is because a company is trying to cut costs, or because of seasonal work, or the company went bankrupt. You can definitely be laid off if the company wants to cut costs.

    Best answer: Things to consider:
    1) do you do well at mathematics? chemistry? People in the medical industry need to be good at those things.
    2) Do you like to help people? You could try being a nurse's aid for a summer to see how you like it (or if you are okay with blood, gore, vomit, mucus)
    3) If you like being outside, hiking and camping, you might enjoy being a forest ranger or a game warden. (watch North Woods Law for ideas -- should be on YouTube)
    4) If you like animals, you might find being a veterinarian a rewarding career.
    5) If you work well with others, you might try human resources as a career.

    6) If you like travel, you might enjoy being a travel agent or a truck driver.

    7) If you like structure in your life, you might try the military. Sign up for the shortest amount of time they offer, in case you discover you don't like it that much.

  • Should I find a new job?

    Best answer: I agree with everybody who answered you. Ha ha ha But, I will go ahead and give you my two cents worth. You are 23 and in college. Okay, that's fine. No problem.

    Best answer: I agree with everybody who answered you. Ha ha ha But, I will go ahead and give you my two cents worth. You are 23 and in college. Okay, that's fine. No problem. You have worked at a shoe store for at least one full year. That is even better. You are looking good. You're building a work record that employers want to see. You are paid minimum wage. Already, you won't be able to pay rent or buy food. But, you're living at home and paying no rent and probably not paying for food? You're still looking good. The co-workers are enjoyable and some are now your closest friends. You're looking way good. Why? Because these co-workers will someday be working with you elsewhere or maybe they might be in a position of authority and be eager to hire you to work with them. They might even save you from a year or more of unemployment. So now let's look at this closely. I think that you have such peace of mind by working here and having plenty of time for your studies that you are getting a little antsy and eager for some kind of change in your regimen. If you quit this job and begin looking for another, this peace of mind is going to evaporate. Suddenly you will realize that you have barely enough time to "study." You will be flung into the void of unemployment and it will scare you. You will have lost your job and your peace of mind and the tranquility that you have right now this minute. You also will damage your work record that you have been building steadily for over a year. Now, you have dashed it to pieces. Right now, if you stay on this job you will be able to say truthfully, "I had a job all the way through college and it gave me a fabulous work record which allowed me profound prestige in order to land a beautiful job making great money when I graduated. Eventually I moved into my own apartment which was just a few blocks away from where I started my career and worked my way up to CEO of the company. So, my instincts tell me that you should find another way to appease your eagerness to find another job and put some variety in your life. You should keep your job and instead of playing with it to entertain yourself, you should instead take a quick trip on a ferry across the sound and have dinner and a movie and spend the night in a ritzy hotel and go shopping tomorrow before taking the ferry back home. You'll walk into your job with a sigh of relief and hug your co-workers and wait on your customers with a certain gusto that you have saved up on your ferry ride. In other words, just do something fun and fascinating. Keep your friends because some day they might be looking for you to join them working for an exciting company that pays $53,000 plus commissions. That is the way I see your position at this point in your life. Loved visiting with you. Bye bye.

    I decided that I don't want to work there if I got an interview, but I still haven't gotten a response from them. What do I do to let them know I'm no longer interested? What do I say if they ask to interview me?

I told her I only worked a couple of days at Denny's and she hired me anyway. Why do companies need to have work history from you?

    I m 16 and I just got a job at my local McDonalds. I ve been working here for almost two weeks and well...I ******* hate it. Most of my coworkers are nice and reassuring, but there are some coworkers and managers that can be real *****. I need to start saving money for college and a car, so that s why I started searching for a job in the first place. My best friend also got a job there, but I never work with him. My family was finally happy that I got a job, and I don t want them to be disappointed or think I m a coward for quitting. But this job ******* sucks and I just want to spend my summer relaxing and hanging out with friends. The job itself is quite complicated because I have to work the counter, work drive thru, get the food bagged and out, clean the lobby and the kitchen, make fries, restock supplies, etc. The pressure is really getting to me. And it doesn t help when my coworkers and managers are being total dickheads because I m relatively new. I haven t gotten paid yet either. I was told that I would be getting paid this Friday, and then I was told next Friday, and then today i was told in three weeks. My parents probably wouldn t approve if I decided I wanted to quit. Idk, it s just extremely stressful and I feel pressured. I ******* hate this feeling so much that I m starting to feel depressed because most of my summer is spent working at a job I hate. I also live in a small town, so it s kind of hard finding a job. I guess I just need advice.

    So, I have a co worker who throws child hissy fits over working on Sunday nights. All of the sudden she does not want to work them because she wants to see her family and that’s the only day of the week she can “see them” (she’s been working there for 2 years now suddenly when I start working there Sundays have become her family days) but anyway the girl gives all the other employees HELL about not working Sundays for her especially me and everyone knows how her attitude is even my boss is like “don’t get on her bad side” So my boss texted me after the fact that I’ve told her TWICE I don’t want to work sundays because I live super far from the job one and everyone else lives like right up the street. But now she’s telling me I have to work because she wants to make it fair for everyone so I would work some sundays and my other co worker will work some Sundays but the girl who wants them off won’t work at all now. My thing is I absolutely will not work for this co worker because she gives me attitudes at work, and it really upsets me that my boss is accommodating that rude girls need after I’ve told her NO. As a boss shouldn’t she not be fair and just tell the girl to work? Anyway she said she wanted to talk to me about it and I was wondering do I have a right to say no or will I get fired?

    So I currently work for one of the big 4 accounting firms, I’ve been in the company about half a year and am looking to move departments to further my career, I’ve seen two positions internally one I’m qualified for and the other is in the sector I want to progress into. I’ve already applied for the one in forensics as this is where I want to go in terms of career goals, even though I’m not fully qualified. However I’m just wondering will it ruin my chances if I apply for the other position as a finance associate which I’m qualified for? Ideally I would like the forensic one but if I can score the finance associate job I can also progress from there. Any suggestions on how I should play it? I don’t want to wait around for an answer from the forensic one only to find out I’ve missed my chance at the other position
