have you ever ever give up a job in your first week? — Ask a Supervisor


I took a job working for a pair who wished to turn out to be actual property magnates, and wanted somebody to assist with their advertising. After I interviewed, they informed me they might have an workplace, however for now it was figuring out of their home.

I used to be informed to not put on a lot fragrance the primary day I confirmed up (I wasn’t, I’d simply…washed my hair?). The primary day, I used to be directed to observe all of the recordings of the actual property coach that they had paid hundreds of {dollars} for to ensure I “knew the trade”. The coach was a mixture of Wealthy Dad, Poor Dad + Tom Robbins, and completely horrifying.

The second day, I needed to choose up a birthday cake for his or her assistant, and bought lectured for taking so lengthy (I needed to drive throughout city and wait in a protracted line at a tiny store to get it). Myself and the assistant whose birthday it was needed to every sit and eat a slice, however the actual property couple didn’t. When requested, they mentioned they didn’t rejoice birthdays. A pleasant “Oh, why’s that?” was met with “spiritual causes.” after which simply full silence whereas we completed our cake slices. It was so. awkward.

Each morning, the spouse of the couple would textual content me to select her up a Starbucks espresso on my technique to their home, then lecture me about being late when doing so. The Starbucks was down the road from their home, and nearer to her than to me.

Nothing could possibly be achieved with out the spouse of the couple enhancing it herself, lecturing about doing the duty “higher”, or just taking on every thing herself. I used to be assigned submitting duties, envelope stuffing, and basic low-level admin work. All of this was achieved in a spare bed room of their very massive, very costly dwelling.

I’d interviewed for a extra senior stage position and had thought I’d be working campaigns/bigger scale advertising initiatives, not appearing as an assistant which may sometime be allowed to publish to their social media. After the fourth day of being texted, whereas nonetheless in mattress, about choosing up one other Starbucks order, I simply texted again “I give up” and rolled over and went again to sleep.
