    I am in college and work retail part time. I work at a shoe store and I like the job itself and the people who work there a lot but the pay is awful, it’s minimum wage ($7.25) an hour. I used to work at Walmart and made $10 an hour there but quit because the managers were complete jerks to me for no reason. There is a different Walmart not far from where I live and I have heard the managers are nicer there and that the store is run better. I don't want to quit my current job because I like it but I need to be making more money if I can because minimum wage is just not cutting it for me. I want to quit and try to get hired at Walmart but at the same time I don't want to because I like the job I currently have. What should I do?

  • When someone has been fired is it compulsory to specify the reason?

    I got fired and he said it was because of my performance. He didn't elaborate and refused to give me details.

  • Applied for a job and recieved a call 30mins later?

    Hi, I literally applied for a job about 30mins ago and recieved a missed call from the employer saying they would like to discuss my application further. What does the entail? What can I expect? I am a little nervous as I did not expect response that quickly and caught me off guard a little. Thank you.

    I was told that people are not successful with art degrees, that they're are just considered "unemployed", and that there's barely any jobs that need art degrees of any type. Anything in art is what I love to do, and want to do for the rest of my life. Painting, drawing, acting, singing, and liking music for an example. But if theres no good enough jobs out there that involve those topics, that pay you enough to afford a roof over your head, afford you enough food to survive off of, then I will have to work at a job that I don't enjoy that didn't study for :(. I don't want that, I'm just scared. I'm 18 years old about to graduate high school and I just wanna do what I love and not be slapped in the face that I can't do what I love to survive. Can you give me as many decent job options I can possibly do that need an Art degree, and will still give me hope that I can live off of it as any other career?

  • If working for free is illegal why can people volunteer?

    Best answer: People can only volunteer at non-profit organizations, organizations that have completed the 501(c)(3) and proven to the government's satisfaction that they are not a business. Otherwise, it's illegal to work for free because it violates the laws that ban slavery. Well, there is one other exception:... show more

In order to work for free as an intern, you must be enrolled in school and be receiving school credit for the work.

    I just received a job offer at a company just down the street from where I currently work not sure whether to take it. My current boss can be mean and micromanage. A deal will fall through and she will call me bad at my job, dumb and blame me in front of my team even it was out of my control, or even if someone else dropped the ball, it would still be my fault. (She does this to all of us in the team) It is such a small company so HR isn't an option. What keeps me there is that the company itself is great, I have over 6 weeks of PTO time, we have 32 hour work weeks 1/3 of the year and a great retirement matching plan. I also love my coworkers inside and outside of my department, makes work more enjoyable. I've been looking for over a year and finally got offered a new opportunity which is more challenging ( I am currently a bit bored). Salary is about 13k more than I currently make but the benefits are pretty bad compared. Only 2 weeks of PTO and I would work alone as everyone else works remote. The job seems interesting but I am very undecided. I don't want to make the wrong choice. Money isn't everything but as a single women with a mortgage to pay, money certainly helps live a comfortable life and to be able to save. Ive never had the money to travel so making more would help, but without the PTO I wouldnt really be able to travel anyways at the new job. I mean, 2 weeks isn't much these days. Any advice? Thanks in advance!
