    I've been working at Clarks for the past 3 months now, every Saturday, and I hate it. I work in bags department so I'm stuck up in a tiny cramped stock room with a low roof (not helpful as I'm tall and constantly hit my head) and most of the time have nothing to do as who really buys bags in a shoe shop?? I've also had the implant since the week before I started working there and this has had complications of its own, including causing me to have depression and various other problems such as constant headaches and fatigue and sickness. As a result of this I have had to have 2 days off of work for sickness, which my job haven't taken kindly to. They even went as far to say that I've "let them down" by being ill, which is completely out of my control. I've even cried at work before, one of the managers not caring so much that my distress seemed to be an inconvenience to her. As a result of having 2 sick days my job have called me in for a "final meeting" in which they'll decide whether or not to keep me, which is tomorrow. I'm so tempted to just can it in and tell them how much I hate this job and quit tomorrow. Not too sure what to do, help??

    Sounds like it isn't for you.

    Go to the meeting and see what they have to say. Or quit in anticipation.

    I think I'll see what they have to say! I just hate not working in a team mostly, so I'll see if they could offer me another job in the store and if not I'll quit. Thank you! ☺️
