Should I quit my job?

Dear MTS Times, 

I HATE my job!!! I swear my boss is out to get me….she never gives me the hours I ask for and she makes me stay late all the time. None of my co-workers are my age so I have literally zero fun while I’m there. I know I’m not there to have fun but jeez, having someone my own age to talk to while I work would be nice! The only reason I have this stupid job is to help my parents….I really love them and I want to help with bills and stuff, but I just can’t take it anymore! Do you think I should quit?

Sincerely, Fed Up!


Of course, if something does not make you happy, don’t do it. If you really need the job, ask your teachers at MTS for suggestions of places where you could apply. They can work with you to adjust with your schedule to fit with your new job. Then you will feel more comfortable. Explain to your parents the situation just as you did here, and hopefully they will understand. Your happiness is the most important thing.

Honestly, I think you should quit and find a better job. I know the feeling of going to a job you hate and being unhappy with how you get treated. Then you come home all grumpy and it never gets better. So yes, you should quit and find a better job. You can look on Craigslist or ask some of your teachers at MTS to help you look for a job that you would enjoy more.

I’ve been through this before at my old job. I felt unwanted, like an outsider, and I wasn’t making any money. The best thing to do is quit, but before you do you should try to get in contact with the higher ups. If they don’t do anything and nothing has changed, go find a job that partially meets your needs and standards.  Trust me, it was the best decision of my life and I really like my new job.  Go get that money!

I’m sorry to hear that! Things will get better with time. I think that you are a wonderful person for wanting to help your parents and I don’t think you should stop, but I think you should be at least a little happy working. You should start looking for a new job somewhere else with a healthier work environment, but until you find a new job just stick it out at your current job for your parents sake. Once you find  a new job put your two week notice in so you can move on to bigger and better things! It honestly sounds like your manager is taking advantage of you because of your lack of experience in the workforce which is totally not okay!
