    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!

    My friend and I recently applied for a Trainer position at our company, we both made it to the 2nd interview and she got the position. I am furious/ sad, I have worked at my company for 2 years and have experience helping with the training new hire class and much more experience then her. However, she was picked! I’m meeting with the manager next Tuesday to discuss my opportunities on what I could have done “better”. The reason I am bothered is because my friend said she did not even what this position, she only applied for the interview experience. She has worked for the company for 6 months and asked me for ideas how better herself. What should I do? I told her congratulations, but I am pissed. She hasn’t responded or tried reaching out saying she is sorry.

  • My bosses are going to be out of town when I want to give my notice. How and when should I tell them?

    I'm leaving my job due to anxiety, stress, and depression. We used to have two people doing my job, but for the past 1.5 years I've been doing double (sometimes triple) the work.

    I'm leaving my job due to anxiety, stress, and depression. We used to have two people doing my job, but for the past 1.5 years I've been doing double (sometimes triple) the work. I've been with the company almost 3 years and I've been so completely miserable that I honestly would rather kill myself than continue working here. At the moment, I'm in a dilemma of when I should tell them and how. I was planning on Monday, July 2nd, but I just found out that both of my bosses are going to be out of town for a conference. The company is so small that they're the only ones I would report to. I need my last day to be July 11th because my family is coming to town to visit until the end of the month. My boss never got back to me on the approval of the dates I originally requested off, but I just want to be gone by then. I want to give them at least a little notice because I'm the only one at the company that can do my job. I'm afraid if I tell them sooner they won't accept my notice and I don't want to run into issues getting my paycheck on the 29th. This company has always been kinda sketchy. Should I plan on my original date and tell them in an email? Or risk telling them early? Or any other suggestions?

    Best answer: yes i think at least for the majority you need a background check. mostly searching for criminal records. if you dont have any thats fine. just because you didnt show up to work back then doesn't mean it makes you a bad person. you went to personal things and thats something that you shouldn't be blamed... show more
    Best answer: yes i think at least for the majority you need a background check. mostly searching for criminal records. if you dont have any thats fine. just because you didnt show up to work back then doesn't mean it makes you a bad person. you went to personal things and thats something that you shouldn't be blamed for, its not your fault. if they talk you into it, explain to them you felt depressed and anxious. they would understand. if they never asked if you graduated, then it should be fine. it's not of big importance if it wasnt asked as long as you meet the age requirement i assume so

  • 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: You left out an important piece of info - how many hours do you plan on working each week. If this is full time, that would be $8 * 40 = $320, expect about 20% to be withheld so you would take home about $250 a week or $500 a pay period.

    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.

  • When they say on job interviews "I have other people to interview before we make a decision"?

    Best answer: It simply means what they say - that they have a list of candidates and they are going to interview each one of them before making a decision.

    Best answer: It simply means what they say - that they have a list of candidates and they are going to interview each one of them before making a decision. To do anything else (unless this something like entry-level McDonalds with high turnover) would be pretty dumb, since companies always want the best person for the job and offering someone a job before they have interviewed all the candidates could actually mean they don't get the best person. More than likely, once everyone is interviewed, the interviewer will sit down, rrview his/her notes, review the resume and pick the top three at which time he will go to upper management and discuss hiring with them.

    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.
