    First impressions of my first job aren’t that great, to be honest.
    The people seem nice, but I’m staying cautious, as anybody can put on a fake personality, and especially after hearing some of the stories that I was told today. Taking those with a grain of salt, though, of course.

    But still, you’d think that I’d be getting properly trained since it’s only my third day, but my first actually working on the floor.
    But nope, I was basically left to fend for myself again. Had to cluelessly help a bunch of people out on my own, because my manager was gossiping with a cashier and the one training me for the day was busy doing her own assigned-by-the-manager task.

    Not sure how this is going to work out. :\

    Mood : Depressed
    • yep my last job was similar to that, i got yelled at by my manager on the first week because i wasn’t ’doing my job properly’, it’s gonna be hard but you can use that against them because of their shitty training, and if you do end up getting fired i’m not sure if your workplace is part of a union but they will help. i’m not saying you should try getting fired though, i’m just really pissed at my past workplace, glad i quit.

    • Your managers really should help you and train you @devilndisguise, hopefully things will be OK as time goes on, I was nervous at first in my job Hayden but it’s been nearly a year and now I’m really comfortable with it, the people are nice and the work is going well, do your best to hold your head up high, keep working hard and keep going Hayden, you will make it, I’m so proud of you, my awesome friend, feel free to message me anytime if you want to chat or vent, my inbox is always open, stay strong, you are never alone :) (hugs)

    • Aw im so sorry to hear its not going as well as u hoped :/// y first job was such a bad place, my manager would yell all the time, i had 30 minutes of training, nobody talked to me cus all the girls were snakes and snobs and my assistant manager would pull the middle finger at me for not knowing where all the clothes in the store were (i was new! duh i wasnt gonna know)
      i toughed it out for 3 months then left, but made me stronger person, i gained experienced, and now i found an amazing job with amazing people so point being…if i didnt go through my first job i wouldnt have been person i am today nor gotten my current job. Sometimes life gives us bumps in the roads, but they may lead us somewhere better :) )))
      good luck im rooting for u and work sucks….thats how it is when someone signs ur paycheck :/ they dont care
