  • My mom makes me late for work?

    I'm a 17 year old junior in highschool. When I was 16 my mom said I needed to get a job and since I'm not allowed to do sports I had no problem with it, plus I can make some spending money. The thing is my mom won't let me get my drivers licence and I need a parents signature to get one and my dad isn't in the picture so my mom needs to drive me.This is technically my 3rd job because the first place was a fastfood chain and at the end of the interview the manager said I was hired but when I told my mom about it she refused to let me work there because "it's embarrassing" to work fast food. My second job I ended up getting fired due to always going in late because of my mom. On top of that she told the rest of the family that I was fired for sleeping on the job which is a complete lie. My new job I already have 2 write ups for being late. The thing is it's my moms fault an when I try to explain it to her I get scolded and she turns it around on me. I get home from school around 3:15 and I need to work at 4:00. I can make it in time If I walk straight from school because it's about a 45 min walk but my mom makes me come straight home plus the area my job is located is a sketchy area and it's common for muggings to happen around there. i would take an uber but my mom forbids and its a bit risky if there is none in the area and I'll end up being late anyway. What happens is I will be ready and my mom will wait until the last minute to take me. I swear she does it on purpose

    Hi yahoo. About to hopefully start a new job however my references are messing up my start date (references sent 8 weeks ago). One was from my university personal tutor that has not completed a reference and when emailed today they said that because I left the university early they do not want to send one (8 weeks too late). Another is from a previous employer who I had bad relations with, but has ignored my follow up email asking again for a reference. This could damage my application as the company is asking for 3 full years of references. Are they allowed to keep me in the dark like this as I should have started last month (and so I am a month behind on pay for example) Sorry it got long winded, cheers for any help

    I have just got the job of my dreams. But it is only a six month contract . At the moment I have a full time well paid job with good benifits close to home and brilliant paid holidays. If I leave I will never get the job back but if I go I will be dropping in wages away from home and my family often for days at a time. The job is all I have ever wanted to do and have battled to get it. I always thought I would never make it so it wouldn’t be an issue. I am torn between loosing my present job being away from my family but the job would be the opportunity of a live time. Any advice !!!

    A company offered an interview and I declined. I declined through a recruiter who passed them my CV and the recruiter said it wasn't a problem, that he'll let the company know and will keep looking for opportunities for me. I'm also still waiting to hear back from 1 other company the recruiter sent my CV to. I'm extremely worried I made a mistake. The reasons I declined to interview was: 1. The pay is very bad. 2. The journey is more than inconvenient (not the length of journey, which is fine at 1 hour, but the mode of journey). 3. I have another interview coming up which I'm much more keen on (will look amazing on my CV if I got it), offers much better pay, better journey, overall better job description But that being said, it's only an interview. I may have made a mistake. There's no guarantee I'll get the job after the other interview. I may have backed myself into a corner.. How much of an idiot am I?

    I’m 16 in an independent studies school, where I only go 1 day a week. The rest of the week is all homework. So, other than homework, I’m pretty much always available. I’m at this point where I really want to get a job. I want to get up and do something. I understand there’s WAY more to a job than getting the money. I definitely understand the pros and cons, especially for a student. I’m just sick of asking my mom for money, I want to stop sitting around and make my own. I have my permit and ID ready. But who knows.. Maybe I don’t know anything at all yet. Am I too young to work?

    I work in a hospital, i had a really close friend Maria. Maria began making rumors about this other girl Jenn who was also a good work friend of mine. Maria would call Jenn lazy behind her back.. Jen was really upset over maria making up rumors . Eventually i got involed because Mariah began making up small lies about me on our floor saying im hooking up with Jenn ( But Jenn is married) I went to my boss and they had to open up a big investigation, during the investigation Maria was removed from our floor. But alot of the nurses went to Human Resorces saying that jenn and i are lying, and that Jenn is the one starting drama, and that im Jenns puppy because i always had a crush on Jenn. There were about 8 or more nurses that went to Human resorses to report Jenn. ( i dont know what the reports were) Jenn had a friend for 12 years and she even went to human resorces to report Jenn. The guy conducting the investigation made it seem like Jenn and i were the problem. He asked Jenn " if you are married with kids, why do you let another guy talk to you, knowing he likes you." Everyone on that floor knew i had a crush on Jenn, so everyone began using that as an excuse..... but i dont understand how thats even relevant to the issue??????someone turned this whole situation around, and Me amd Jenn got into a fight and we are not friends anymore. Like why did everyone turn on us????? Is there something im missing?????? Can i have advice please

    About a month ago I applied for a Sales floor position at Target. The next day they called and scheduled an interview. The thing is they didn’t offer the position I applied for, they claimed all they had available was a barista for their Starbucks area. I accepted the offer because at the time I felt like I HAD to get a job since i was taking a semester off from school. Plus I was hoping they’d call and say the position I wanted was open. They scheduled orientation two weeks after but then changed the date to a later one.. Rewind to when I was offered the barista position. I expressed that I had no experience at all, which is why I was trying to find another place to apply to before training and/or orientation. I’m scheduled to start in a couple days and I REALLY wish I had declined. Since I’ve already signed papers etc do I have to put in a two weeks notice ? I’ve never quit anything before so I was also wondering if I could do it over the phone or would I have to meet with the manager?

    I go to appointments fortnightly with an employment advisor for the past month. I’m a 21 year old quiet guy who’s quiet and nervous and polite. She reminded me the interviews she chose me for that I had coming up and she subbed me for both of them (they get job opportunities) and she then turned upbeat and her voice also was upbeat (bubbly) she talked a little about it and then said ‘ok do you need interview clothes?' (THey provide vouchers for interview clothes) I replied politely (I’m very quiet) ‘yes, Iv got all that' and she said 'oh have you got all that?’ (upbeat as I said) I said yes then she went on to say 'ok well don't forget, shirt, pants and shoes, (she moved her hands also while saying this like a checklist) make sure you get a shave, make sure you cut your nails..make sure you do your hair up all nice and that.....(then she paused as she was facing her computer) ..'and make sure you put some aftershave on aswell, for the girls make sure it's mens' then burst out laughing, she’s never even smiled before (I just smiled along with it) I a young guy and she’d in her early 30s. Just really worried she thinks I'm Ugly and that I stink as a result....or something like that. Need a 2nd opinion...I did need a shave which maybe why :/ she also put in the email ‘please dress smartly’ underlined. But she also chose me for 2 interviews and didn’t say anything about appearance at all the 2nd time so I don’t understand :/
