I am done!

I got a job doing something i cannot stand, out of pure desperation... Now i want to up and quit. My last job was a storage facility, so office work, and some outdoor stuff. I worked alone 99.8 percent of the time and loved it! Now, im dealing with coworkers and cannot stand being micromanaged! I used to be able to do whatever i wanted because i was the boss... I cannot take this anymore at all, and no storage places where i live are hiring…

You might want to be more humble that when you knocked on their door and asked for the job, they hired you. Sometimes you need to…

How do I start

I started my job at the Census Bureau

I absolutely love it it is for a receptionist Clerk and it pays weekly. They are still hiring so if anyone is interested the website is 2020census.gov/jobs to fill out an application. It is informative and very laid back. It is temporary until August of 2020. I hope to gain valuable job skills from this opportunity.

What are there requirements?

Hahahah...No......

So, previously I had went to a lawn company to try and find work...Great! Well the following day of working he tells me You're not needed anymore...( which made me sad :/ ) But I kept going and looking for jobs again only to get a call from the guy who owned the lawn service.
He told my that we need you tomorrow but I'll pay you and call you when we need you.
So, you want me to work a whole day might have to finish tomorrow but not let me come…

New challenges

So I am happy to say that I am going to work for a company that’s totally new to me. It’s strictly a commission based job but I am excited to see where it will take me. I believe in helping people and enriching their quality of life. I’m taking the plunge and moving forward.

Finally some good news!

I finally had a job interview yesterday that led to a phone call in the early evening telling me i got the job! This is a job in my field of experience, and something i really love! I am really grateful, and this could not have come at a better time. I am able to resign from the job i had to take just to take. I was really miserable there because i hate working with food, and the pay was awful. Everything is now going to change for the better…

End of The Line

So, I am one of those 'older folks' who worked for a large corporation for nearly 20 years only to be cut due to downsizing. Since this happened a few years back I have been through two other downsizing's at companies, I worked at one for a year and another less than 6 months. I've been passed over so many times for jobs, losing out to younger folk it's ridiculous. You mention to someone you think age plays a factor and they look at you like you…

Hi Derik Lattig I am so sorry that happened. Unfortunately, downsizing is quite common and can happen to those who are newly hired…

Looking for work in baton rouge area

I've been laid off 2 almost 3 weeks..I was told that it was a shortage of work, coincidentally after I requested more pay for my production. The contractor that I was employed with barely has knowledge of the field and felt that every job was supposed to be complete in 2 weeks which some of them were but most of them wasnt. He always complained about somebody trying to milk him which in all actuality was not the case,its simply because he loves…

3$triks H.V.A.C & OUTTA'HERE!!

My Sons & I recently moved from Milwaukee Wisconsin. I'm in my fifth year of journeyman, HVAC certified, forklift certified & @rtist by trade. I tried private Contracting for HVAC on Las Vegas Trail,Fort Worth Texas. Worst place ever to start out, if you don't know anyone! I did the work, show the burden of proof & expect the $300 check for a 4complex apartment to make ready, & 1 clean-out... Then make ready!! Instead I received the $30 check, &amp…

I'm so sorry to hear that your experiences have been so poor in HVAC. I would suggest that you connect with old coworkers who…
