10 Reasons Your Job Is Not For You!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

6 Mar

1.  Everyone is being really nice to you. I have worked several jobs where people are too nice. They examine you work and tell you it is perfect but they are lying. Never take anything an employer says as fact. If an employer says this project is due next week, get it done that week. Every assignment is just a test of your skills and ability to execute a project.

2. If on the first day your manager  is excited to see you and talks to you, but the next day he “ignores” you. Not a good sign! He is probably thinking of all things you did wrong and can not bear to speak to you.

3.  Your co-workers have either a bad attitude towards you for reasons that you are not aware of.

4.  You feel uncomfortable at work from day one.

5. You still feel uncomfortable at work on the second day.

6. You can’t trust your manager. I started doubting the words that were coming out of my managers mouth. Once you start second guessing what is true and not true you’re in trouble.

7. Supervisors and managers set unrealistic expectations. For example, expecting you to do an assignment perfectly but you have only worked there for two days. A lot of managers do not want to take the time to train people. They are expecting you to learn things quickly and do not have the patience to be a mentor.

8.  If you are a minority and you notice there are no people of your color in your department or various departments. If you’re looking to get promoted seeing the diversity in other roles is an indicator of how easy or how hard it will be for you to get a promotion.

9. Managers who offer informal criticism at random times. An old boss of mine never gave formal evaluations of my work. That put me in situations where I could never present my side of the story. For example, a line would begin to form in front of the cash register and then my boss would spew a list of things she felt were not appropriate about my job performance.

10. You can not see your self in that job for more than a few months. If you are working to survive, it is okay. However, if you’re looking to build a career you have to be strategic in your job choices. If you do not want to be in retail and then do not apply for jobs in retail.
