    Bonus answer: yes, and it puts you in a stronger position because you can pick and choose your next job AND your CV will have a current employment position on it.

    Unless you have a very good reason to turn the job down I'd strongly recommend taking it, do the best you can and see how it goes. Then after 6 months or so, and if you still want to change, start looking again.
    I agree

    Not to the extreme you're suggesting is frequent - if they were that bad, they wouldn't be in business long.

    My experience is several years of working - from start ups to Multinationals as well helping a friend set up a job prep business and being responsible for exit interviews.

    And let me tell you, the only time I've heard of the examples you're citing has been online from someone claiming they're being mistreated (I.e. one side of the story).
    Its you that keeps telling me what I am saying and twisting it.

    1. If you come across a poor employer and cause them difficulties then when it comes to leaving can they put you on the back burner and be disinterested/ unhelpful. then yes.

    2. In terms of references if a manager doesnt like you, is it possible to give you a reference which is less than helpful, but still legal? The answer is obviously yes.

    I cant see why you would have a problem with either of those suggestions.

    Can it happen? yes.
    Does it happen? infrequently, but it still happens..
    Again where have i said frequently? I dont believe i have, just like something else you made up and tried to attribute to me.
    When you work on employment tribunals and as an advisor then you see quite a few not so nice employers.

    Well, I want to quit. I just had one training session and i've seen my times and it's just 22:45 at night, I can't work that late. I only did one training session and I don't think I signed anything so can I just say "I'm leaving" or do I have to d othe 30 day notice or whatever.
