I hate my job, I'm I wrong for quitting?
This is my first fast food job that I hot hired from. I was excited that Pollo Tropical actually hired me. But I didn't know how it was going to turn out. First couple of days I looked at what they were doing, so I tried and they kept calling me slow. I don't know what they expected from me, I mean I'm not a expert. I didn't take to much offensively because I see that they were going a lot faster than me and I'll eventually make it there. After that week they left me on the line by myself! Horrible. It was after 5 and bunch of people were coming in and order a while of food and I, myself was doing those orders by myself, the newbie. Awful and they had a nerve to call me slow. What did they expect, I'll still trying to get the hang of it. So I got through and a couple weeks go by and I just got unhappy. I mean I hated the job but I wanted the money. But one day I just wasn't "there" I was unhappy with everything, the mangers were stress so they made the Co-workers stress they would yell at me and when I'm talking to them they would rolled their eyes as I'm talking to them. The day before Thanksgiving I came into work and I forgot to clock in, I know that's my fault. I understand the manager got mad and me go home when I had to close with someone else leaving the other person to close my themselves. I got upset because that's less money that I'm not getting on my paycheck. So I quit I couldn't take the non-communication stressful Managers and the unhappiness I felt. I'm 18, shy at first, and a college freshman I don't need the stress that there giving me. I'm I wrong to quit? after the first week i got the hang of it i wasn't slow for the whole time i was there.

No, but none of that is their fault. Just a week of training for a fast food job is normal, that's not "horrible" or "unfair" like you seem to think. It's not rocket science, they shouldn't need to hold your hand forever. What do you mean they "had the nerve" to call you slow? You were slow after you should have known... More

I dont think so. If you were unhappy, then why should you work there? They were obviously giving you a hard time, so you can just find a job somewhere else. Its easy, just ask around. I have recently started my first job at a chinese takeout, and yeah, it was pretty hard, but my boss was patient and understanding. You... More

They certainly weren't very encouraging. Of course, you could learn. Everyone is slow at first if they want to learn the job correctly. If it happens again, stay as long as you can. Then take what you learned there and apply it to your next job. People really treat each other badly at work these days, but try not... More
