  • Boss gets mad because I leave at the time I'm supposed to?

    For nearly two years, I've put my back into my workplace, staying late, covering for my coworkers frequent call-outs and working almost every position. Last December, I was promoted to shift leader and got a pay raise. Everything was going well but a couple of weeks ago, I was demoted and my pay cut out of the blue because they got some new managers. I had not heard a single complaint about my work, so I'm not sure why they demoted me. At any rate, I've since refused to work any more hours than I'm scheduled. I leave at the time I was scheduled to leave and my boss is getting upset with me. Do they deserve my loyalty if they aren't going to show me any? After spending the better part of two years putting everything I had into that place and this is how they treat me?

  • Is Trianing in any work field has to be paid?

    Best answer: In short? No. Most companies do pay (from retail to other jobs), but...many don't. There is no law about having to pay an employee while training them.

    Best answer: In short? No.

    Most companies do pay (from retail to other jobs), but...many don't. There is no law about having to pay an employee while training them. Apprenticeships usually don't pay, which is a given. If you're a trainee at McDonald's or the like, you most likely will get paid....if you're learning the ropes of journalism, you probably won't. So, it really comes down to where you're working. It will be discussed - or at least in your paperwork - whether you get paid training or not. If you don't read your contract, that's your own fault.

My manager however, told me she’s gonna need to stay for the holidays, and if I don’t I’m “screwing her over” even though I told her I’m taking another job. Even the owner said something to me. I’m just worried even though I’ve tried to explain to her my situation, she’s gonna tell me I can’t use her as a reference which would suck cuz I worked my butt off there. What should I say to her? I know she’s gonna holler at me but I want to stay professional. Any advice?

    Best answer: 6 is not that many...

    It may have been better applicants. If you said 50 interviews, that would definitely be something about your interview.

    Ultimately, you cannot do anything about better applicants but you can work on improving your interview skills. Practice is the only way to get better and you've already had 6 practice sessions. Bring a pen and take notes about the interviews; what did they ask, how did you respond, how many people, any odd questions? If you have a resume that's getting you interviews, you should have some skills and should be able to analyze your interviews effectively.

    Most the people were men and i literally had to interact with 2 females....and no, I didn't choose, it all just happened to me. All the guys were kind, I had no problem with them. They had no problem with me. There was one girl, she was nice. But she became someone else's manager. The other female that became my manager was just a pure asshole. It made me cry. I literally tried my best to be kind to her but she just didn't stop being rude and mean for no reason. I asked her normal questions, not even many questions. And she's just mean to me. It's like being a nasty ***** out of hell makes her feel superior. However, Ive ony had a couple of one day jobs before...and i had female managers...they were nice. But with this, I've been here 3 days...i hate the manager so much for mistreating me...i read some forums online and people are saying that there's no 'sisterhood' in most workplaces and that women are cruel to other women...Are they right, is this really the norm?!?!? If so, how do you cope if you happen to be a woman but you're the nice type not the cruel type?
