    I start on Wednesday as a "food services advisor" - just a fancy name
    for working at Debenhams restaurant.

    I already work at a restaurant.

    All I am doing is changing companies?


    I also applied for the sales advisor job, was ticked off cos I didnt get it?

    What do I do? I dressed up for the interview, contributed highly, gave my best and in return I'll probably be a guy that puts macaroni on your plate?

    tbh just keep doing it for the time being especially if you're going back to school or college next month then you can change as there is a guarantee that you would find it hard to get another job direct after quitting as most place are now over subscribed with CV's so no time to check through every single one even though you may have enough previous work experience.

    You're not stuck in the job for life.
    I like to think of working as "free money that you have to put effort in to get"

    I'm not particularly looking forward to starting my job next week either, but for a different reason, i'm completely underqualified for it! I think it's best to just give it a go and think about the pay you will be getting (this is definitely keeping me going!). How hard is it going to be to find another job?

    Hopefully there will be other things about the job that you do like, such as colleagues.
