Work Conditions So Unbearable That Women Quit Within The First Two Weeks

We all need a source of income to survive, but there comes a time where jobs are so bad that they're not even worth the money. If possible, it's best to get that cash flow somewhere else.

Have you worked at a workplace more toxic than the ones listed below? Let us know in the comments.

    Font - _volcanic_ashes_ · 14h I started as a floor rep at Macy's at 18. My schedule was set according to who had time off that day so I was put in a different department in the store almost every day covering a different person's shift. They had me hit the ground running with almost zero actual training. It was pretty awful because each department had different rules and routines and everyone I worked with was frustrated with me for not already knowing what I was supposed to do and they didn't k

    As a customer, I didn't know working at Macy's could be this hectic. What goes on behind-the-scenes is truly an eye-opener.

    Font - celestialism · 13h I quit on day 2 of telemarketing. I was in a group of 7 new trainees, 3 of whom quit even before I did. The manager was evidently used to people dropping out, so she was unfazed.

    Font - DisloyalMouse · 13h I got a job as a waitress when I was at university. Despite telling me at the time of my interview and when I started that my piercings and tattoos were fine. After a couple of weeks I got told my the restaurant manager that it was not ok. That I would have to take all my piercings out and would have to cover my tattoos. I tried to protest that I had been previously told they were fine and questioned what had changed, but all I got was the same answer. So I quit on the

    Human body - tangyprincess · 13h Crazy customers and demanding management wasn't enough to justify the dismal pay. I quit after the first day.

    Font - Unhappy-Breakfast482 · 9h My first day the person training me said "people tend to go on break and not come back". By the second day I decided that was a great idea. No lunch break in a 9 hour shift fffssss. Told the manager I wasn't coming back and then blocked his number when he tried to schedule me anyway,

    Font - VagabondDreamGirl · 12h Day 1 at Albertsons and I think day 3 at McDonalds. So I apply for a job, I tell them my availability, they hire me...and then completely ignore my availability. As soon as I hit a conflict I stopped coming in. Week 2 at a car wash because I was there 60 hours but got paid for like 25. Apparently they clocked us out whenever there was downtime.

    Font - marymoon77 · 9h Oh jeez... was really depressing (a lumber mill) the boss was extremely toxic like yelling daily. she expected me to be fully trained abd treated me like i was stupid then 3 weeks in realized i had never been given the training manual. ... i was crying after work daily. get off work, drive to pick up my kid, cry in parking lot. i was making $14/hour. 4 days after quitting i had a job making $15.50 and zero stress. no use staying somewhere that sucks.

    Font - 01122127 · 10h I worked 4 shifts at a shitty retail clothing store for ladies work wear essentially. My supervisor and manager kept pressuring me to upsell and tried to make fun games out of who could sell the most of an item in a shift. It was not fun for me! I prefer to leave people alone in the store unless the specifically ask for my help. So on my 4th shift my manager called me into the office to ask how I was doing and I told her I was super uncomfortable with trying to force people

    Font - fullmetalbby - 9h It was scary/freeing. I took a General Manager position and was excited for the opportunity. The owner of the business started to make slight sexual advances on me, and since it was a small business, there wasn't an HR department for me to contact. After I turned down his advances, he started to retaliate. I quit without any notice. I emailed him letting him know I wouldn't be returning. He called me a coward for not having the courage to give notice face to face and for

    Font - mjsmore33 · 6h I was asked by a coworker to take a part time job as her mom's caregiver. My job was to clean her house a few days a week. I told her I could, but I worked full time, was in school, and was going into a nursing program so I absolutely couldn't be around drugs. I couldn't risk getting in trouble. My first day there get mom brought out a gift bong. I told her I wouldn't be able to stay if she was going to smoke. That I wasn't comfortable with it. Every time I went there the h

    Font - drivingat4am - 8h I just started a new job as a security guard. I am getting paid not even $1 above minimum wage. I paid $500+ to get proper certification for the job. I, along with all my coworkers were given 0 instructions on how to manage the site we work on, and the client that we worked for had to correct us as we worked multiple times, in the forms of complaints and treating us like we are braindead. Us employees cannot take breaks, lunchbreaks, or even pee breaks because there is n
