what can i do?

I've worked in the same job for over a year or so and can't stand how rude and unfriendly the people are.

all the coworkers who are *****y are in a little clique with the supervisors and managers and all socialise together, they either ignore me or like the managers they are usually are rude and sarcastic towards me.

They never invite me to the staff socials or anything like that. (not that i'd like to go out with them anyway)

what can i do apart from quitting my job? (I really need the money!)

thanks

Do you enjoy the job that much, is it going anywhere? If i had to work in an environment where people were that unfriendly i would defo considering finding somewhere else to work. Has it always been like this?

well if things are bad you can always go talk to the human resources department of the company if it has one, they will be able to advise you on what can be done and how to change things, you can always go above your direct manager and see their boss, that way word can come down the chain of command.

you should look for a backup job just incase you need to get out of there because you have no other options. but use that as a lest resort, look for another job before leaving the one you are in.

It's a bit like this at my work. But it's only part time, and I'm only really there for the money, so whenever I'm there I just get my head down and get on with the work.

I left my old job because of that. The manager was a complete ****, and she just *****ed about everyone all the time.

When i went in to leave (i was speaking to the owner) he persuaded me to work for a couple more weeks. On that Saturday when i went to work, she refused to work with me, because i wanted to leave becasue of her. Hmm.

Luckily i became really good friends with two of the people working there, so i kinda just stuck with them before i left.

So basically, you're buggared :p:

But good luck all the same

I have had quite a few jobs and considering you are at work for a large amount of your waking day, the best thing to do is, get your CV out there and go job hunting.

In my experience, if you try to address the problem, people tend to turn on you and your co workers aren't exactly making an effort to get to know you.

Do you really want to still be working there is 5 years time knowing that you are miserable?

Miserable 5 days a week for at least 8 hours a day can start to flow over into your personal life.

Good luck hun, hope it works out for you

thanks for your help, well i'm going back to uni in september so i wont be working there much anyway.

i just try not to get into the politics of the place really, the place is quite small so it doesn't have a human resources dept. as such.

I do like my job (i work in a cinema) but not some of the people i work with. and yeah they've always been this unfriendly..

I don't really want quit my job as there's good perks (free films ) etc but it just get me down somtimes how rude they can be.

thanks for your help


oh and i'll only be working part time in september anyway..

Do people have to be rude for me to do that? I'm thinking I should do it randomly to people as I walk past them :yep:

I used to work in a bar in Soho and there was this one woman who made my time there hell. She'd scream at me in front of coworkers and customers, ignore me when I said hello, and pronounce my name wrong on purpose. On one occasion, she accused me of stealing and called me a liar. When she'd come into work, she'd hug my co workers but would walk past me without so much of a nod. It got so bad I had no choice but to walk out.

If you are unhappy, I would suggest you do the same. There are plenty of other jobs around and you'll always be needed somewhere else. No need to waste your time with ****holes.

Oh but it would be so funny to me, perhaps I could wear a mask and cowboy hat, like a modern day zorro with warped intentions? I am really warming to this idea and think I should hit the high street tomorrow... :top:

look for another job. i had similar co workers. i worked in a tesco express and on a busy sunday afternoon, they left me alone in the shop. i had to be on the tills, and serve a massive lot of customers. also being under 18 had to ask for permission when they had purchased alcohol. so i was ringing the bell meaning everyone jump on the tills, or 2 bells for a manger which can mean anything from the tills have broken to armed robber. i rang the bell constantly for like 5 mins. they were all in the staffroom, managers included, where the bell was clearly audible and yet no one came. i am so glad i left!
