    Well, ok kinda LOL! So I told my boss I was

    thinking about leaving to move back to my hometown. A few days later the owner of the company called me. The owner! I never talk to him! He offered me a HUGE promotion. OK, now I have a pretty big decision to make. If I accept... it's South Bay bound for me :) I think I...

    Man, I haven't started a new job in years!

    Pretty nervous. Plus it's sales! Although I'm experienced in sales, learning how to sell a new product or service can be really intimidating!

    I'm starting a new job tomorrow.

    It's been 6 years since my last job. I'm nervous I will make mistakes due to having an awful memory and needing to do things many times before I memorize how. Any advice?

    A Better Job I Don't Want

    For the past 6 months I've been working at Target as a cashier. I really liked it there, it was open, friendly, and I was good at it. However last month they started putting more and more pressure on the cashiers to sell Red Cards. I've been terrible at it from the beginning, I...

    Dumb Undiplomatic Words

    I said something really dumb to a client yesterday. It just popped out of my mouth. Now I am afraid that he won't let it go--and that he will complain to my boss and co-workers about it....I am kicking myself for being so stupid and thoughtless.

    I start working as a server

    and cook tomorrow at a pizza place in my city. I guess it's not really that new to me as I did work at it's sibling last year but decided not to go back to that location due to drama and the stigma I got while working there. The reason I got drama and stigmatized was because I...

    First Day At My New Job

    Well, needless to say; my first day wasn't at all what I thought it was going to be. I came into work thinking that I was a half-hour later than everyone else. False. Pretty much no one was in the building, aside from myself and my Art Director. He was clearly very, very sick. He...

    all I dream it is) I start in a few day. But first I must train my replacement. I think I'm easy going most days. I get along with just about everyone. However I really really can't stand this woman I am training. It's not because she's doing my job. I'm happy to be leaving. If...
