i want to quit after my first day and i'm not sure what to do? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have just started a part time job at an adventure park to try to get some money together for accommodation for university. when I applied for the job, it was advertised as a "park team member" and was advertising £7 an hour. when I joined, I was told that the pay was actually £6.70, and then told differently again at £5.30.

    Then when I started, it was pretty much just me and another guy who had interviewed me basically cleaning the park toilets all da (10 hours). I was also not really given enough info about what chemicals I would be using and what to do, which made me feel like an idiot when I had to keep asking what to do.

    basically, the job is nit at all what I expected and I want to quit, but I'm not sure how to go about it. any advice? anything would be greatly appreciated, thanks

    Definitely give it a few weeks and see if it's still the same. A lot of companies do things like making you clean the toilets in order to test your perseverance in the first week. If, after a month, things are still bad, then quit.

    Also, when you get your payslip, check it to see the hourly rate you've been given. It would be worth talking to whoever is in charge to enquire about pay, on the basis that you've been told lots of different things
