    I currently work in a restaurant and my job role is unclear 2 months on. I don't get a report to tell me how I'm suppose to improve or whether I'm doing well and theres no management - there is literally no manager. This is my first job and I feel like it's not giving me a proper insight into what a real job would be like.

    The staff who work there look down their noses at me because this is my first job and so i'm inexperienced. No training has been provided and everyone I ask doesn't seem to want to help me. They try to throw me into tasks that surely should require training like going and taking orders? I have never done this in my life and next week it'd look unprofessional me waiting on a table of 15 with no previous experience I don't know what to say or how to act and I don't even know the menu.

    I'm currently doing my A-levels so I don't know whether I should quit the job to focus on my studies. I'm doing German, Biology & Art.

    Out of school I don't do any other extra activities because, honestly, my parents never got me into anything growing up so I'm stuck in a bit of a rut because I'm quite shy and wouldn't know how to go about joining anything.

    Shall I quit? Any advice would be appreciated - thank you.

    I would definitely quit. If you do want a job though, look elsewhere. Retail is pretty good for a weekend job.
