Just Started New Job...But :-(

Mon Sep 26, 2005 11:38 am

Hello Everyone, I just started my new job, and I guess I SHOULD be excited... but I'm not.

I mean, the pay is pretty good (8.55/hr and 11.05/hr on weekends + Every Friday off and Every other Saturday and Sunday off). But for some reason, I feel uncomfortable. Maybe it is because I'm new, and I fear that I'll screw up somehow. The hours are also pretty good (8:00AM - 4:30PM)

Can anyone explain why I may feel uncomfortable and out of place.

BTW -- I'm a "carryout" at Menards... Basically what a stockman does at Wally-World, except it places more demand. OY!

This job is just temporary until I can find a job in the aviation industry (That is after I decide where I wanna go, and after I figure out who is merging with who).

Exactly. Its not like you went to college for this job for X amount of years only to find you hate it....now THAT would suck.

You just have the new job blues.....once you settle in, you should feel more comfortable.

Try giving a history lesson in a small classroom packed with Emotionally disturbed "Urban" High School students, without air conditioning in a very hot a humid building.

Hang in there ...

Not everyone likes their job.

This may be your real "test" on how you handle your job.

regardless of how detestable you may find a job, you can always take what you want from it and use the opportunity to learn something and move forward, while maintaining a positive attitude.

the experiences, no matter how minor, you gain in this position will only aid you in some way later on down the road. and i dont mean your job duties, but real-life experiences from the cast of people you have to work with, to even smaller situations that can cause stress, or anxiety. you can learn a lot about yourself and use that information.

You have to admit the pay -does- seem pretty good for the position you are doing. You can't beat that, really.

BTW, my dad LOVES Menard's.

By looking at your profile you are very young.

Perhaps it is nerves, and meeting new people? If you dont understand something remember to Ask.
