Anybody ever quit their job because they don’t like their coworkers and supervisor?

I don’t know how much longer I can deal with these people….

Once. I came back expecting everything is the same and boy oh boy I was wrong. So dead wrong.

New staffs and a new GM that are very strict. New policies that are like choking the life out of us...

A couple of times.. a piece of advice, secure a different job first.

@Archetype I’m seriously thinking about it but I actually enjoy what I do here so it sucks

@chasingThursday Keep your options open because if you're anything like me then one day you might just snap and leave. Having no job sucks.

3 times I’m a Scorpio, and I can’t tolerate most people. 🤨

@Camelia I’m not much of a people person either which doesn’t help lol

@chasingThursday I think it's the fact that I'm like a snail. I like to go at my own pace, and I get moody with orders.
We all get that, stand your ground and think of the money!

But the luxury of being able to leave without needing another job. So I bided my time, and when I got a horrible email from my boss, I just packet my bag midmorning, never to return.

Added to that my associate , who had been trying to get my job for eight years, lasted six weeks before being removed. And my replacement thought it was an easy life, lasted two years. Who cares!

Stickin it out so far but I can't read their minds and they can't string words together. If the task takes like 10 minutes 3 minutes in they're wondering out loud why you're not finished. They need help moving three heavy objects but will tell you they need help with 1 so you help with 1 move on and then they tell the boss you bailed on the other 2.

co-workers were fine, the owner and his lap-dog were a hot, sketchy mess. six weeks in I dropped my keys on the desk and walked out the front door!
chasingThursday · 36-40, M
@GerOttman how did that feel?
GerOttman · 61-69, M
@chasingThursday just a relief really. they were a couple of whack jobs. a year or so after the owner had a heart attack while freaking out on a crew that had had taken a long lunch at the bar. (one of several) I think he had a come to Jesus moment as he lay on the ground in a parking lot with the guys standing around laughing at him. Got the story from a guy who was there and ended up working with me at a different company. Also ran into the owner once after and noted he had a completely different demeanor! Some things actually can change a man I guess!

Only if i had another job lined up. Currently im fortunate to have great coworkers that make me laugh, my bosses are so so

Yes. I reported to the top man in the company, and he was a total jerk. I had to leave for my own mental health.

This is very relatable to me ! Can't decide what to do.
chasingThursday · 36-40, M
@TinFoilHat me neither
I did that in my last job and also my first job out of school.

In my last job they had about 10 people with the title manager and 5 people who were just engineers.

In my first job out of school they just were Trump crazy and if you werent a huge MAGA cult member then you were ostracized.
chasingThursday · 36-40, M
@chasingThursday yea and actually most of the jobs I have worked in since have been huge MAGA cult places because I work in defense but I have since my first job learned how to say nothing while looking interested
Keeper · M
Yup and physically moved. Same industry, way better company.
Yes. A couple people I worked with were really cool. As soon as they were gone, and I was left alone with gossipy saboteurs, I quit. I even packed up and moved to a different town to get as [i]far[/i] away from them as I could. (Just kidding. I was planning on moving if the job didn’t work out; it wasn’t specifically about getting away from them)

My job interview is Monday
chasingThursday · 36-40, M
@Pretzel good luck to you :)
Yeah. The work whatsapp group finished me off.
Before I left my previous employer, I was a top candidate for a position there and withdrew because I had 2 other offers with different places. The person I would have been working for was cool, but the department was full of people I couldn't stand.
thepropulsivepanda · 31-35, M
Yup. Also because I wasn't making enough money to cover the gas it was costing me to drive there. 😂
chasingThursday · 36-40, M
No. Blessed to always have had too good a job to leave over that kind of thing. There is going to be such people anywhere you go.
Ceinwyn · 22-25, F
No. I work to earn money. Coworkers are just people who share that space with me. My real friends are nothing like them.
TheEmperor · 26-30, M
An old 'manager' I had used to just eat and do nothing on his shift and then tell me to deal with it. The whole small company failed
Yea ive quit 2 jobs for that reason
chasingThursday · 36-40, M
@ExperienceDLT any regrets?
@chasingThursday nope well i regret not beating the one managers ass but other than that no regrets
My last job, and my first job as well. I didn't like my bosses
that's usually a large part of it, for sure
NativePortlander · 51-55
Grow the fuck up and deal with it.
issybell · F
you just gotta flow with work
I don't think most people like their co-workers or supervisor

That's life

If everyone quit over only that, everyone would be unemployed

It seems to usually be younger, less experienced people who feel entitled to having a 100% perfect work environment and thus are more likely to quit just over relatively trivial, real-life aspects ... as they mature this phenomenon seems to become less of a go-to action
chasingThursday · 36-40, M
@BlueGreenGrey I left for other reasons and some places closed down. Stop being so judgmental before knowing the whole story
@chasingThursday I haven't judged you, and if you think I'm being judgemental of you, that is on you, maybe it's a Freudian slip on your part

honestly, if you're easily wounded by the thoughts of strangers, don't solicit them, not everyone will suspect you are like that and try to avoid wounding you when imparting things which should not wound you in the first place
NativePortlander · 51-55
@BlueGreenGrey Exactly
