  • Thoughts on putting in your 30 years working construction starting as a teenager and retiring by 50?

    I'm well aware the retirement age is creeping further and further up in age bc of the economy but I don't understand why people wouldn't start their career right outve high school and skip ahead instead of spending 5 years in school and possibly 1-2 years searching for a job post college... show more
    I'm well aware the retirement age is creeping further and further up in age bc of the economy but I don't understand why people wouldn't start their career right outve high school and skip ahead instead of spending 5 years in school and possibly 1-2 years searching for a job post college graduation. I'm still a teenager and settled in with my construction job already. I'm not blind to the reality that construction is going to shave off several years of my life and I'm going to have health problems when my 40's come but I'm not afraid of all of that because I know it will be short lived at the end of my career and I'll retire at 50 years olds. Anybody else think working hard labor starting as a teenager and putting in their 30 years is worth more than working 40 years at a desk job and graduating college with $25,000+ in debt

  • Applied for a job and recieved a call 30mins later?

    Hi, I literally applied for a job about 30mins ago and recieved a missed call from the employer saying they would like to discuss my application further. What does the entail? What can I expect? I am a little nervous as I did not expect response that quickly and caught me off guard a little. Thank you.

  • Is it ok to cry to coworkers when customer was rude?

    A customer was rude to me that day, so the first person I went to was my supervisor and I recounted what happened.

    A customer was rude to me that day, so the first person I went to was my supervisor and I recounted what happened. I give out free food at Sam's Club and bc I lost my voice, a customer wanting to try my samples accused me of being sick. I told her it was laryngitis and she said she don't want my sample anymore. While telling my supervisor, I burst into tears on the floor bc that was hurtful. My supervisor said not to take it personal. I'm thinking like, "That's it?" I was hoping for a piece of candy or a few dollars or w/e. I went to my coworker who was several steps away and still in tears, I recounted what happened. She had me breathe 5 times and then gave me her water, which I devoured like an animal. Another coworker who was there acted like a real momma, which I really needed. I then asked the latter one to be my momma. That all happened out on salesfloor. Then I went to lunch. Since a few weeks ago, I used to cry at work multiple times a day. That particular day, I only cried once. Is that improvement?

  • Would you agree: American society has gone to he--?

    It seems ludicrous we send our kids to 4 years (6 years these days) of college just to work minimum-wage, and then work your way "up the corporate ladder" for 5 years+ so they can finally move out of their parents house by the time they are 30.

    It seems ludicrous we send our kids to 4 years (6 years these days) of college just to work minimum-wage, and then work your way "up the corporate ladder" for 5 years+ so they can finally move out of their parents house by the time they are 30. Then they get their careers ripped out from under them and have to return home again. This has become normal here in southern California. Maybe, its different in your state. Plus, college-dorms are horrifically-expensive and always packed so good-luck with that. ____ Why bother anyone more?

    She insulted me countless times and I took most of her comments without reacting badly. Some comments though were extremely rude. So I finally had enough, and wrote up my letter of resignation the following evening. I handed it in the next day and offered two weeks notice even though I could barely stand the place. It was making me depressed and I stopped eating properly. When I handed it in, I noticed a complete change in attitude. Suddenly she was acting nice. She told me she's just stressed and was taking it out on me. She said she doesn't want me to leave. As much as her attitude is what was driving me away, I told her the reason I'm leaving is because the work isn't for me and I'm not the right fit...blah blah. She basically convinced me to sleep on it. Why didn't she just kick me out and tell me she'll find someone else? I said I'll think about it. That conversation happened a month ago. I've decided to give it another go. I'm not sure whether that's the right decision. I don't want to go back on the job hunt. The work is alright and for the most part I'm treated fairly and even complimented at times but I still get paid peanuts. Could I ask for a raise? I guess I'm just asking: What should I do?

  • Asked for a raise. How long does it take for an answer?

    Best answer: DOn't expect an answer right away. Giving someone a raise means finding money to pay it with. That also may mean your boss needs to ask THEIR boss. You might use the time in between to show them why you are worth it. There's a huge difference between wanting one and being worth it.

    So I've been at a new job as a temp for about a month now and so far I get along really well with everyone. One co-worker however insists that he doesn't need any help when I offer, even in the slightest, no matter how large or small the task may be even if he's starting to fall way behind. However I've realized that he will gladly allow pretty much anyone else to assist him when he starts falling behind, or even when he doesn't need help. I confronted him about this, and he accused me of being racist.This is completely untrue, and now I realize that he may try to get me fired, so my question is this. What if I said he accused me of being racist because I'm gay?

  • Let’s say if you accidentally entered a wrong amount into a register?

    For ex the total was 100 and they give you 150, but on the machine you put in they gave you 200.. As long as you give them the right amount of change back which is 50 dollars would you be ok??

  • I want to quit my new job. I've only worked three days so far?

    Best answer: "that I could be getting next year." Two key points there. "Could" be getting... and "next year." That's over eight months away, and it's not guaranteed. For everything, there is a first time. The employees working there right now didn't just walk in knowing all... show more
    Best answer: "that I could be getting next year." Two key points there. "Could" be getting... and "next year." That's over eight months away, and it's not guaranteed.

    For everything, there is a first time. The employees working there right now didn't just walk in knowing all of the coffee flavors and donut varieties and every bit of product in the shop. They learned it. My advice: cut yourself a little slack. You just started there - so it will take some time to learn the ropes.

    Make a video of yourself today - this moment - describing how you feel and what you know about the job. Then save that video and watch it again three or four months from now. It will surprise you how nervous and upset you 'were' about nothing. Kick a** at this job. Make it a goal right now to not only learn everything about the business - but to be the BEST at it. Become THE most reliable employee, someone who is so valuable they cannot possibly continue without you.

    Then use it as a springboard for your next job. When you apply for that job next year, they'll contact your current boss for a reference. He'll verify what an awesome employee you are, and how you taught yourself the business from the ground up, and how he hates to lose you. That's an admirable quality that future employers look for. You also might find your current employer matching whatever your new job will pay - just to keep you.
