    Can I quit a job without notice?

    Favourite answer:

    Unless you have a contract you can in theory leave today.  BUT...when future employers check references it could come back to haunt you.  It's better to tell the employer that you have been offered a job better suited to you and you'd like to leave at once but will stay for two weeks if necessary.   Most will let you go figuring a quick change is better than an uncomfortable, and unproductive two weeks.

    quitting first job?

    I got my first job at burger king that's far from my home. I pay about $24 everyday for a lyft to work. I was just offered a job at a retail store that's a 10-15 minute walk from home. I've had five shifts so far at BK and I don't know how to quit since i've never worked before. Should I tell my manager that I've got another job that's closer to home? Can I text her about quitting or should I do it in person? She's never around during my shifts so I never see her. Can I just tell an assistant manager?

    Your supervisor refuses to let you change your seat because you want to sit away from someone who has Covid, what should you do?

    The call center is packed with angry customer calls, lots of call representatives already quit due to COVID, less pay, more stress, etc

    You have 2 years of experience, think about quitting and have a little money saved to go on for some months but have no connections, no skills like excel or a bachelor degree.

    What is the best thing to do in this situation?

    Are there ways my ex-boss can professionally retaliate against me for sleeping with his wife?

    Favourite answer:

    The only thing I'd worry about is down the road.  If the job you left is in an industry you want to stick with, use caution with this.  The guy might have been a total d-bag to you, but that doesn't mean much.  Lots of guys are like this at work but still respected in the industry.  As for your current job, your boss sounds cool, but do you see yourself there long term?  If so, then I say go for it.

    Oh, there's one other possible exception.  Do they have kids?  I don't blame you for not caring about blowing up their marriage, but when you play a part in blowing up a family, that's very different.   IOW, I'd laugh at your story if no kids.  I would not laugh if there are.

    Question about being hired for Barnes and Noble?

    I submitted an application to work at Barnes and Noble, they only take online applications. The way their site works is to have this timeline showing the progress of your application. But so far it's been 2 weeks and it's still on the first stage. Should I call where I applied to and ask how my application, or is this just something they don't control by the store itself or something and I just have to wait?

    Any tips or advice for this? I'm waiting to see if they call me in for an interview at least

    When do you suggest I retire (work)?

    Favourite answer:

    Without knowing your current age, what kind of work you do, where you want to live, if you want to travel, if you're married, and how well off you are, it's impossible to say. But overall I'd say to retire when you feel it's a good time to, and if you want to spend more time doing lots of other things besides work.  Retirement age creeps up quickly, and there's only so much time left after that.

    Does it sound like I'm being treated badly by my company or does it sound like its just not the best job?

    Here are the facts:

    -I've been at the company for almost 2 years and haven't received a raise or promotion

    -The company pays me less than the average salary for my degree. However, they seem to pay the market rate for the job title.

    -I  would say I do more work than everyone else on the team in general. I'm on a team of 5. For example, there's clients that call our team and anyone on our team can answer them. I answer probably about 4/5 of the calls that come in.

    -About half of my team members are friends with each other. They always go to lunch together and leave me. There's another teammate on my team who they don't do things with though.

    -When I ask my manager for help on anything he gives very brief responses almost all the time. I somewhat feel like he trains me poorly on purpose.

    The job is an entry level position if that means anything. The company doesn't have that great of a reputation. About half of my team has left over the past two years. Also, if you search for them on job sites they all have about 3 out of 5 stars.

    Fired from my job, any advice?

    For the last year it has been one of the best years. I have working on myself. Working out, running, about to get masters in nursing for family nurse practitioner. Recently, I have hit a major roadblock. I just got fired from my job as a registered nurse due to hippa. I’m devastated. Been working in the hospital for 5 years. Even though I’m almost finished with my degree( 4months) and not planning to work in the hospital; I didn’t want it to end it like this. Also I haven’t told my family yet. I’m am just crushed, my life has been relatively good. I rarely face any hardships. I’m just not use to this feeling. Any advice. I’m a 27 year old male. Thanks

    Should I be honest with my boss?

    Favourite answer:

    You say it's on you for being wrong about the gig, but that's a bit harsh on yourself.  You may have picked the wrong place, but that can happen to anyone.  What matters now is how you handle it.  

    The worst thing you could do is confide in your boss.  Sometimes this makes sense, like if you're a long term employee having trouble with another manager, etc.  But you're brand new to the job and you may need these people for a reference.  As a long time manager, we don't want problems yet from someone there only 2-3 months.  My best suggestion is just keep doing what you're doing, keep an eye out for anything that pops up elsewhere, and maybe even contact your people from your old company.  With a recent 13 year stint on your resume, it's not going to make you look flaky if you stick with a job for 6 months and then leave.

    Is this generally true about workers?

    Favourite answer:

    No. Self employment can run a huge range, from people who work as consultants or independent contractors and only work when they want or need to, to entrepreneurs who run their own businesses. I don’t know any successful entrepreneurs who are laid back, generally they are some of the most driven people, constantly hustling and driving for the next goal.

    Should I discuss with my coworker or go to human resources?

    I walked into a conversation between two of my coworkers.  One of them said how lousy was my work literally showing a work I did, the other one said "not bad at all." The whole thing lasted at most ten seconds.  I walked out immediately because I did not know what to do exactly.  I try not to cause any problems with anybody but should I complain to human resources since my work has been discussed, rated, and gossiped about.  Neither coworkers are my superiors, supervisors etc. Any thoughts?

    Are personal days required by law for full time employees?

    At my current job, and also at my previous job, we were never given personal days. We just get 3 weeks paid vacation. So if you want a day off, you need to use a vacation day. How can some companies not give personal days? Aren’t they required by law for full time employees?

    My brother has been unemployed for six years.  Why can't he find a job?

    He got laid off six years ago from a temp job that lasted 18 months.  He doesn't want to apply for a survival job, like Home Depot or Walmart because they pay low and too many people apply, so he applies for these $100K a year jobs, because the competition is less. 

    He has been called for interviews, but doesn't get hired.  He stopped looking for work last year saying that nobody is hiring because of COVID, but as soon as Disneyland opens again, he will get a job as a project coordinator expanding their park in Anaheim.

    Is he delusional?  What is wring with him?

    Lack of Work unemployment?

    I work for a greenhouse and my boss continuously gives me days at a time off after guaranteeing me 40 hours, it started with a few days here and there but then it was a full week because there wasn't any work. Last night she texted me and said she is laying everyone off due to lack of work for at least another week or two and told me to file for unemployment. Here's the issue I see with that, it's seasonal work, we only work there 4 months out of the year and so far it has only been two, from my knowledge you have to work 18 weeks in the same company to file for unemployment. Would I be eligible to receive benefits while I'm out of work because of this or what can I do? Obviously I am looking for other work opprotunities in the mean time but this was sudden and unexpected and at no fault to my own. is there any options for me?
