It’s sounds like you’ve gone through a lot of big changes. It is totally understandable that it will take time to adjust to the new job and the new culture. I’d say just do your best to hang in there and give yourself time to adjust. If you feel like you’re bored during the day or you don’t know what you’re supposed to be doing, then it’s okay to go to your boss and ask him to help you understand everything that’s expected of you and all the tasks that need to get done. But the longer you’re there, the more you will adapt to the work environment and the more comfortable your co-workers will get with you.

I think what the PP said is spot on. I would give it some time, let the “newness” of you being there wear off and kind of get used to the job, the company and the culture. Truth be told its hard just to start a new job in your OWN country never mind in a completely different country and culture, I admire that and can understand how stressful that is.I hope after sometime things start to fall in place and if they don’t then your well within your right to speak with your boss.

@ladyartichoke:  Wooo that would be frustrating for sure…

I would rather the planning capacity you spoke of. At least it sounds less boring than sitting around for 16 hours with a language barrier/all men!

If you just started, maybe they’re babying you so you don’t feel overwhelmed… its a nice thing but kinda annoying as well lol

If you have to keep the job as grounds for your visa, I would just thank my lucky stars and stick it out. 

Did you speak to your boss at all? I would be gentle because I wouldn’t want to come off ungrateful for the position but if you’re really unhappy and you think it will be well-recieved, I think you should say something.
