So good thing: got the job I wanted! Stressful part: giving two weeks notice to my boss, someone who is a huge reason behind why I decided to move on. My old coworker said to rip the band aid off and I think that is good advice. I am just super stressing about it. Feeling like the office will gossip and also the idea that after all my time there, it really isn't going to make a big difference to anyone when I am gone. That's business right? :/

I'm having anxiety attacks at work now. I told hr that I wanted to put my name in the running for a new position in the company. Now I feel like that was the worst mistake ever. My boss hasn't said anything to me about the want of change in direction. Was it a bad decision to put my name out there? I mean people switch departments all the time...

I want to both work.. but then not work. Work, because I need to support myself and no. . Because my last job experience was awful.

My main job wasn't giving me enough hours so I picked up a second part time teaching job. Now my boss for my first job is mad and but my hours more and gave the full time position to another coworker. I explained to her why I had to take another job but she doesn't seem to understand. It's to the point I'm debating leaving that job because I feel looked down upon and i get slack for having to work extra to pay bills.

My first day of work is tomorrow and I'm extremely anxious and nervous. Mainly because I have no prior experience to working with children with autism. This is my first "real" job out of college and it's difficult for me to have confidence in myself.. I'm just hoping for the best tmrw. ✨

About 2 months ago I started a new job in a new area, I moved 5 hours away from my original home therfore, I know no one in this area. So I thought starting a new job would help me make friends and such but it's so stressful and makes me feel so sad and isolated. I work with mostly just girls about the same age as me (19) and yet none of them talk to me, but they're all friends with each other. I swear I am extremely friendly and I try to make conversation but it never works. I'm just so lonely

I just got a new job and I found out that the company is most likely closing in a few months. I feel like it's not fair that I'm hired to a store that is just going to close

Any tips on how to share concerns with the boss about a coworker?? It's small things that I can address but the worker doesn't pay it any attention i.e. Headphones in while working, Netflix playing while customers are in etc. of course thy do this around the boss. Thanks guys..

I'm taking on a lead position at a new job not because it pays more but to get it on my resume. I have to start somewhere.

I'm a graphic designer and I just finished designing a 52 page magazine for the local football team. They had an intense deadline by the time they got all the materials, I clocked 25 hours working on that damn thing in the last 4 days. I'm so exhausted from the stress. I want to cry but the tears just won't come.

I hated my job and was overworked and had a colleagues who was unsupportive and negative critiquing my every move. So I quit(and was off sick with depression) however I have found work one day a week and have no idea how I am going to make ends meet...

I want to shove my manager down the stairs. I am overworked with 3x the amount of social media clients above average and he wants to know why I can't stay on schedule and what I'm doing with my day.

I never look forward to going to work anymore because I feel underpaid. It makes me angry how people go out to lunch every single day and are hanging out doing expensive things and here I am not being able to do much of anything because I can't afford it or to spend much of anything on myself. I plan to work on updating all my resume docs this weekend so I can start looking for something else.

A woman recently started working at my job and everything has since gone completely downhill. She's rude, mean, and does everything wrong and never wants to try and learn better. She thinks just because she's a full timer she knows everything, and she constantly tries to antagonize me. I thought I had my anxiety and depression under control, but now I'm reverting back to how I used to be and trying to find ways out of going out at all- sometimes I even find myself having suicidal thoughts

Does anyone have experience in accounting? I'm still a student and have taken two accounting classes so far. I'm just really scared of the responsibility and possible pressure from bosses but I have social anxiety and it seems like accounting is the most secure job for someone as introverted as I am. I just know that I am very analytical and so long as I know what I'm doing I could handle number crunching all day

Some days it's really hard to not freak out over the little things. When I don't sweat the small stuff, then they don't turn into bigger problems and I know I can always make it through whatever stress I may face.

I'm ready to start looking for another job. I'm tired of this place underpaying me when I work really hard when it has taken over year to get a promotion that they keep saying is going to happen and hasn't.

So tired of going to work, in pain mind you with back issues, just to be yelled at for something I didn't do. I've brought up the issue in the past and it never seemed to matter until now so it's my fault. The very first day I worked there I was yelled at just for apologizing, and I was told it was because I was new. Shit hasn't changed and new people are being treated like royalty. Why? I'm very diligent and trusting. Just why, kills me

It's taken me hours to work up the courage to call this job I'm trying to get hired at just to ask them a simple question. Every time I pick up the phone my heart races and I chicken out.

Work is really overwhelming atm. I cried at lunch, but luckily the care team secretary has a dog that cuddled me and made me feel a bit better

I'm conflicted and slighted depressed. I like my coworkers alot, I have a good boss, I get to work from home occasionally, I enjoy the technical portions of my job... but I'm slightly lost in direction and I don't feel like I have a lot of options. I could pursue the management track... but that doesn't feel right., I'm slightly hurt at helping a new person settle into a lead position. How odd is that? I turned down a promotion (twice!) But I'm still a little hurt at mgmt bringing in someone new

Questioning my worth and value not only as a person but as a part of the company I work for as I am really falling short on my goals and behind many others
