At least stick with it for a few weeks to be sure on your decision

Like I have told all my kids.... you have to take the rough with the smooth

 

Give it at least 6 months, then you will know a lot more about the WHOLE job

And it looks better on your CV if you can show that you gave it a try

Keep the job and start looking for something else. Don't quit without securing another job.

Also the grass isn't always greener.

You started today, and it's your first job. Of course things going to be a bit awkward at first. Allow yourself some time to acclimatise, and if after a few weeks you still haven't found your footing you can start looking for something else.

First day, first job, like virgin sex, you don't know what to do. So you either quit like a wuss and don't bother again for the rest of your life or you realise most people find the big bad world a challenge, but I'm sure your parents will appreciate you being out of the house.

I quit the job. Simple reason ? I wasnt gonna even get paid enough. My dad works at a company that has car shops. And theres these guys with the auto detailing. The idea is that i was supposed to get paid from the amaount of work i have done. Well i did work as a start and i think i did good. At the end of the day it was just a good bye and see you tomorrow. In our country even if the first day is considered a day for learning you still het paid for expenses for getting to the work. And not only that they didnt have any work. They gave me something to do i did it and then the rest of the day up to 18.00 i was just sitting there with nobody ever telling me what to do. And what was i working for ? 25 bucks a week ? Nah i have better offerings foe a job. Thanks for the replys people :)

Sounds like you didn't even have a contract and there was nothing official about it anyway. Out of curiosity, where do you live?

Sounds like it. :P

I know there's large differences in average income and cost of living between different European countries but $25 dollars sounds insulting as a daily wage, let alone per week. Good old cultural differences. Wonder how much money I'd have to save before I can fvck off to live comfortably in eastern Europe doing nothing at all. :harp:

Anyhow good luck finding something better. :)

Just some advice for when you start work for a proper company. There's always something to do. Best thing I ever did was pick up a brush and start sweeping the floor/s. A simple job that often gets overlooked and will earn you brownie points with the boss.

Also ask for a mop, mop bucket and bleach. When you'll get asked why say you're going to mop the toilet floor. Another tick.

Basically find yourself something to do. Anything. It shows initiative, you're willing to work, gets you in the good books AND makes the time fly.

easier to get a job when you are in a job, so talk with mates and see what jobs they do and you might like. It took me long enough and a lot of awful jobs to realise you need a bit of paper (qualification) to stop being treated like dirt by a lot of managers (the Owners are ok its the dickheads who they have as managers that cause all the woes).

Only good thing about jobs you don't like and leave is you acquire a lot of odd skills that are sometimes useful in real life.

Yep, never sit there doing nothing just because nobody told you to do something.  Find something to do, ask for something to do, ask if you can help someone.  At the very least ask to watch someone so you can learn the job.
