I work at Goodwill and the other day I had a woman who came through my line and she didn't have much money. She was buying a few t-shirts and when i rang her out she counted some change very slowly. My coworker out of nowhere tells her she couldn't do that and asked her to leave the store. I said I was sorry and told the woman to please wait a few moments. I went and grabbed my boss from the back because I could tell she truly needed those items... see more

Hello JobCase Community, today I want to talk about respect.. We should all respect one another! Each and every one of us, are the sons and daughters of someone else.

These days, life is hard enough! People don’t need you, to remind THEM of THEIR... see more
I lost a job I had held for 7 years just three weeks after telling them that I was pregnant.

I had never been written up or officially reprimanded or given any warning about performance and such. I am in Fl and I was told at my release that FL... see more
Interesting little article claiming the 1 reason people quit is when they feel disrespected. Have you quit an employer before? If so, why? What advice would you give to a fellow Jobcaser who is thinking about quitting today?
I have written many a post in my time here on jobcase, but I have seen some responses that have been rude to either myself or others that are answering my conversation. All I have to say is don't do that this is not a forum on being rude to each other this is a forum to get advice and to maybe make connections in finding gainful employment. Keep your little comments that are rude and go post them in a forum that is appropriate. I report rude... see more

I'm tired of being the one that my boss uses to get the work done in my specific duties when there is sometimes 2 or us doing it. Seems like everyone else is allowed to be lazy while I am expected to follow all the rules. I used for my experience but get the least respect because I don't do drama. Ugh I'm 46 and too.old for this. I'm feeling hopeless and worthless.
