my boss has not given me a shift in 4 weeks, so i am going to call him tonight. i told my parents what i was going to do and they started to say that you shouldn't quit because you have no other job to go to. i then proceed to tell them that i'm generally not really wanted there and i get treated like **** by the duty managers, they proceeded to tell me that i will not get any where in life if i quit, i told them that i can probably do better in life than a fast food restraunt and i don't like being in places i am not wanted.

so now i have to call my boss in 20 minutes should i listen to my parents or should i quit?

i'd ask for shifts. if they couldn't give you any, i'd stay on the books but look for another job.

On a more serious note.. stay with them for now, but start looking for another job.

yeh they still have me on the roster i call up every week. i work at red rooster a chicken joint, the thing that ****s me the most i got not one shift over the easter holidays. now this is just bull ****, i reckon they don't want me their so they're not giving me any shifts because they have no grounds for firing me. my brain says quit but my conciounse (i know spelt wrong) tells me to listen to my parents.

my argument is

i'm not wanted obviously so i'll give em what they want

my parents argument is

but if you quit you won't get any money

although i was getting **** money in the first place (the per hour rate was good it was the fact that i was getting a 3 hour shift a week.)

That happened to me. My boss said that she would call me for some work during the week because i wasn't on the rota to my face when i went in. Then i never got a call.

Why can't people just grow some balls and tell me i'm ****.

I had a boss not give me any work in 3 days, I left.

4 weeks is unheard of and I would have quit a long time ago..........you can find a better job.

most of the electricians I worked for were one man companies run out of their house, they used to call me at night and be like ok...heres where we are working.
I would randomly get work and that was fairly ok with me but the think that ticked me off the most was when I didnt get any work or when he called early in the morning changing plans at the last minute. I was only making $8 an hour with those type jobs and they were a ton of work, attic installs, ceiling fans, working up on roofs (which I hate doing...)...not worth the money IMO so im going into editing in the TV field.

Dude, quit. Or at least ask if you can have a few more shifts. If the people there say you won't get a better job they're ****ed in the head!
#14
honestly, that sounds like an awfully long period of time. if you need the money, quit and get another job where you're actually needed/wanted/appreciated. thats what i'd do, anyway.

i would quit if I didn't work for more than 4 days unless I was given a very good reason, you should have been looking for a job for the past two weeks.

If you plan on quitting don't quit till you have another job lined up and make sure you get a reference off of your manager. I did pretty much the same thing as you. Quitting my job as a checkout chick at Coles and now i find it hard to get part time work, partially as I'm 18 so they have to pay me more and also as i don't have any references and have been out of work for about 2 years.

I'd suggest, like kanthras said, stay there but just start looking for a new job.

theres absolutely no reason for this guy to keep his job though, since he isn't actually working and probably wouldn't get a good reference from his manager anyway.

well anyways i called up my boss, and what an asshole he was he wouldn't even speak to me he got the duty manager to be the middle-man. in the end i get told that there cutting down the roster depending on your performance over the past 5 weeks, i haven't been there for 4 of them so i say well tell *boss* (i will not tell names) that i quit before i get fired, which is a tip i learned from someone who's name i can't remember. (it looks better on a resume if you quit than get fired). i'm gonna call during the week and try to speak to that asshole i call a boss.

*EDIT* i might as well put down on my resume i was never hired by them, because they never had my tax number (i never gave it to them) and i generally will never speak about that place again. it never happened, or will ever happen again period.
