I have had a really bad retail job for almost a year now and I finally decided that I'd had enough yesterday, so I quit. In the time that I've been there a lot of stupid things have gone on that really made it a horrible job. I could go on and on about all of it for a long time but I only have so much free time right now. I will say that the last straw in the manner was that I have been at that job longer than anyone else (by at least 6 months) and my numbers are always some of the best and yet I was cut down to one shift a week. I don't get paid well and with so few hours the job is no longer worth. With the distance I have to drive to get there, the one shift won't even cover gas. My manager continues to tell us if we want more shifts we need to have better numbers. My numbers were second best 2 weeks ago, and third last week. People who had the lowest numbers are getting the most hours. The girl who had the top numbers last week only had one shift this week too. So I finally said enough is enough and told the manager I was working with yesterday that my one shift next week would be my last.
I told my mom and she asked me how I was going to keep paying for Lucas. Well I certainly wasn't going to be able to keep paying for him with one shift a week. My friend has offered to pay me to watch/play with her dog a few times a week so I'll have a bit of money. But it's not ideal and my mom is right in that I won't be able to keep paying for Lucas if I don't get another job soon. My problem is that, apparently I don't interview well. I always think the interviews go fine but I never hear back or get any jobs. My friend tells me I don't interview well. She's never seen me on an interview but she knows me well enough that I wouldn't be suprised if she's right. So now I don't know what to do. I'm still looking and applying but no luck so far.
