I feel you πŸ™ I’m the new girl at my current job. It’s so hard to learn a new job. It’s a corporate customer service position and there are all kinds of exams we have to pass.. the material is hard. There are other people who are “new” along with me so that makes it slightly easier.

But at the job I had before this, my first few months were hell. I was the only new person there! The lady training me made me cry at work, she was so mean and unwilling to answer questions. I cried every day in the parking lot, before and after work, crying from dread of the work day and crying after the 8 hours of trauma had ended.

Eventually I got really good at the job and when I accepted a new position elsewhere, they counter-offered! They BEGGED me to stay. My promise to myself was that I could leave as long as I didn’t give up and nailed the work to the floor first. In the end I whooped that job’s ass! lol for lack of a better term.

Of course now I took the new job I’m thinking aaaahhh what have I done, so much new stuff to learn, can I do it?? haha. But I have the memory of how I powered through the Job from Hell to give me confidence.

Don’t give up! Think to yourself, “I’m going to get so good at this position Snotty Girl will be blown right out of the water! They’ll come to rely on me because I’m so good at the job duties. And then I’ll find something better and have the satisfaction of handing in my notice KNOWING I am a tenacious mo fo” πŸ™‚

I’m so sorry you’re having a rough time at your new job.  πŸ™  Sometimes people don’t remember or understand what it’s like to be the new person – it sucks!  They should really have some more compassion.

I once worked at Sam’s Club and felt a similar and also had a hard time with insensitive coworkers…and I quit after one summer.  I was a cashier, and one of my favorite interactions with a supervisor, in my first week or two of work, went like this:

“Can I go to the bathroom?”  (as in, is it OK that I leave my register?)

“I don’t know, can you?

Such a DB.  I wanted to smack him, but I just turned heel and went and did my business.

@roweboat: people are so rude!! I worked at pac sun for a few weeks years ago and the employees there were so mean! Like I would start a conversation with some of them and they would laugh at me and walk away. πŸ™ 

i say give it right back to him, he’ll probably back down.

Sounds like a lowly manager on a power trip.

Not all jobs are like that! Are you in a position to find another place to work? Or to look while continuing at this job?

It sucks that people are mean but try not to take it so personally. I get yelled at for the stupidest things sometimes (WHY did you staple on the LEFT side?!?!?!?) you need to find the humor in it and just let it go. Next time he’s giving you a hard time you should seriously ask him something equally stupid like: “can you show me how I can put a t-shirt on a hanger faster?” don’t let him walk all over you.
