    I started as the receptionist at a small

    building firm but changed job descriptions to start doing drafting as I seemed to have a natural knack at it. Problem is that they said they weren't going to hire another receptionist but assured me that I wouldn't have to continue that responsibility after I signed my new...

    I accepted this new job assignment

    because I thought I can help, and not because I needed the money. This job is in another country 8 thousand miles away. On my first day I asked to see their Protocol and Procedures Manual, I was told to check it in the office computer. Can't find it. I also ask for a Memo of...

    Nervous about my new job?

    I've had two jobs in retail one on commission and another on just the sales floor (fired from both and never been promoted at any of my jobs). I got a full time job in commission sales and I've always sucked at it. But I needed a new job and this one hired me. Any advice on...

    I can't stand it. I work in an office with just

    me and my boss. It's so boring and normally there's no work to do so most of the time I sit there and over think everything. Because I do this I now have really bad anxiety and have changed who I am. I have become more angry since working here. It's horrible and I actually hate...

    I Hate My Career, But Shouldn't

    It's worse than high school and I didn't even get bullied in high school. None of the women know how to tell your things directly, they just work around if and hint at things and I guess I have to sit the think and analyze what they are trying to say. It's f*cling pathetic and a...
