It's definitely hard to figure out what to do next. I landed two jobs in 2016, but they were horrible fits -- absolutely horrible. I don't want to experience this ever again.

Document very carefully exactly what he does each time, the date and time it happens, after compiling about 10 incidents or so, report it in writing to your HR department. State that he is frightening you. Don't put up with bullies in your office, if HR does nothing or comes down on you for reporting it, you'll know that your working for the wrong Company and its time to start applying for new jobs (land a new job before you quit, of course, if you decide you have to leave).
Older Experienced Loyal Workers
When you get older these employers don't want somebody who has actually worked and earned their stripes, they want young guns who want it handed to them on a silver platter. They want big money and don't want to do anything for it just 8-5 off weekends and holidays and a benefit package fit for a king!!! I worked from before daylight till way after dark, holidays, weekends, on birthday for barely enough to get by on and lots of hard earned experience. Why don't employers want dedicated, hardworking, loyal workers anymore??????????
I’ve recently gotten a job in an office setting, and I’m worried that I don’t have the clothes to look professional. I know WHAT to wear (no leggings!). But in order to GET professional clothes I NEED money - so how can I dress to impress before getting my first paycheck (which might be about three weeks away…) Help! I’m not sure what to do, especially about shoes since they can be more expensive if you want them to look good… any tips on how to bend the dress code in an office setting?? What’s the minimum requirement for looking professional?
I finally got a job front desk at a restaurant but I get worried every day that I will lose it because even though I work my butt off that my social anxiety is going to cause me to get fired. I don't know how to believe in myself anymore. Any suggestions?
Anyone ever feel compassion fatigue from work? I was transferred to Hospice care about three months ago at the nursing home where I work. The pay increase and the hours are great but as a Nurse Assistant providing direct care to dying patients is exhausting. I think I’m having trouble coping with all the death. I like what I do and was even thinking about enrolling in a nursing program next year but I’m having second thoughts after this experience. I was talking with a coworker about not being able to sleep and she said that I could be suffering from compassion fatigue. Is this typical for healthcare workers?
Favortism: A Desease that hurts the real worker
Ever work in a company that uses the "Good Ol' Boy Method?" Talk about a waste of money on idiot workers. It's a known fact the good worker suffers from this known decease. I can attest to this very childish game that they play. I mean, I myself growing up in New Jersey. I can tell you at 16 years of age I was made supervisor of a manufacturing line and I beat all shift production for that day. The other supervisors were scratching their heads on how I achieved the impossible. Well, to keep it simple and give it to you straight ......."I did not use the Good Ol' Boy Method." To clarify this it's simple, I had no favorites around me kissing my ass and I demanded respect and to complete the job right with quality being number one. And how does this wrap up into one word. Inspire the workers to preform better not drill them...............Gee, I don't hold no Master Degree and these stupid visors do. I always thought how stupid can you be having a nucleus of high school bull shit mentality around you. Whatever happened to the Macaurthors and Pattons.........am I alone on this?
