In need of advice

Hey. I have recently started a new job. I work 8 hour shifts with no break. I get degraded at work constantly. I want to quit but I also feel bad for leaving them understaffed. What would y’all do in this situation?

Allison, I am truly sorry to hear about your situation. If you want my honest opinion, it sounds like you are not happy there. A lot of companies and corporations have different rules.

I would look for a new job without saying anything and then make yourself happier once you find a healthier work environment.

You cannot destroy yourself because of the situation, it seems like they need to hire more people.

Talk to a supervisor, or HR. Don't quit til you find another job, but DO find another job.

Life is too short to be degraded all day at work, find another job while you have this one...

No need to pray!!!! File a complaint to your superior or boss, that is what a good boss is for! Talk to someone about it, complaining on social tweets isn't going to stop it!

Hi Allison, WOW! Sorry to learn about your burden. No breaks and being degraded by coworkers?

If filing complaints with HR doesn’t improve the situation then find another job before you quit. You shouldn’t feel bad for leaving the job. Judging by your comment, no wonder the company is understaffed. Any company doesn’t owe anyone a job and you have the freedom to pursue opportunities.

You’re not a machine and working under those conditions is intolerable. But do yourself a favor and find another job before you quit. In the meantime, perform the best you can and disregard the ‘hurtful jabbing’. Remember ‘hurtful jabbing’ is a sad indication of those who lives in need of repair, misery loves company. Try to leave gracefully and with a good reputation. You’ll walk away from this one day with something of value: more courage and character. Keep your integrity intact.

Wishing you the very best & strength and praying for you.

Seems like u have OPTIONS,,,great but sometimes negativity kills the morale of good energy,, and if you are experiencing this at work are u really doing a good job,,,when we don't feel happy or satisfied at least with our job our behavior reflects just how we feel like the energy others putting on you,,,but if you do have OPTIONS get out of there before you are fired because you are basically being harrasted in what way only you can describe.

It’s the law that rest and meal periods be provided or you can go to the labor board and they can be fined per infraction.
