Perfectionist Boss/Derogatory Commentary

So I work for a pretty large network, akin to a government facility so there are lots of people i have worked with and met over the 3 years working here part time: Im 23 and just graduated from college and am more looking for full time positions. My former head supervisor was an amazing women like a second mother, truly a nurture and she taught me so much in the 2 years we worked together, sadly she left in July. Her second in command is about 27/28 and can into the scene about same time and so we have all worked together for 2 years. With my supervisor leaving her next in command was into her position, leaving a full time opening. I applied for this. Prior to applying I have applying to several over job openings in the network and not heard much back. As the change of command has shifted so has the relationship with my boss. It is as if she has become on the lookout for my mistakes. At one I was discussing life and living and she makes a comment about how I am a “child” and how I “ can’t even get an apartment” mind you I work part time, and she said this with all seriousness. On another point she texted me saying she would be writing me up because I didn’t not clock in or out and it would result in a suspension, even though I was not working. Also she made a comment about how she had not seen anything impressive in the time she has worked with me, and how despite most it being covid and things being shut down for a lot of the time we worked together. It was as if the only thing she could see was my age and my mistakes when she looks at me. At one point she mentioned how, “whenever she sees me doing nothing she’s going to make note for my evaluation”. Of which thankfully a higher supervisor sat in with. I have started to send weekly email reports with all the things in the week I accomplished in order to show her my part in this job since she chooses to ignore it. I know bevahe of this attitude I would not have gotten the job. But I still believe I shouldn’t have to deal with this. I’ve been shorted my hours, scheduled the worst shifts, but I work for a GREAT purpose and I adored my job before she came into command. I frankly work my butt off for these people and give them alot of my holidays and TONS of my weekends and I would appreciate a little respect. Please tell me if I’m losing my cool over nothing. #management #advice #coworkers # #workenvironment #stressful #interview

I applied online for a 'Remote Customer Service position' with a 'company' that was supposedly located near where I live. They responded by email and invited me to a Zoom meeting to get to know the company better. When I attended it was being held by an entirely different company located in a different state who sells insurance for yet another 3rd company. They say they will pay for me to get set up and offer full training but my question is this: is this normal? Why the misguidedness and when did Sales positions become CSR positions? (I've been a chef most of my adult life). Any insight is welcome. #advice #jobsearch #wordsofadvice

The older you are regardless of your experience vaccination status and education they want to low ball you. My advice if you still working and considered middle or upper middle income stay where you at or just retire. I am not ready to retire but I will never work for half of what I am making. My job was not one of remote but physical presence required. #advice #ageism

Dollar general has an easy interview process. Mine consisted of talking to the manager about anything and everything. Then I was hired. You move up easily in the company. I’ve been with dollar general for a year and I’m an assistant manager. When I was hired I was told they don’t do drug test which I wasn’t and would have past even if they had.

How to count to three, how to spell your name, ROY G BIV, how to color inside the line's, how to turn a calculator on/off, the name game lyrics by Shirley Ellis, fingerpainting, how to tie your shoelaces, dabbing, pomp and circumstance, how to play beer pong, how to make peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and you should be fluent in 8 or 9 foreign languages. Good Luck!
