Quit my job this morning!

Ive working at this job for 3 years now. Kwik Kar... changing oil day in day out... Well my manager is a ****ing asshat and promised me some raises, commision etc and said he would talk to the owner about it. Well he never did and told me that. So im just like um ok, and i put in my 2 weeks notice

So he hires a buddy of mine to take my position and the manager tells my buddy he will be getting commision and so im like WTF

Today i walk in with all my uniforms and hes like "whats wrong"... just told him straight up i was at him for doing what he did, but then hes always so full of that hey denys it. What a peice of ...

But i walked out of the with a smile on my face! I hated that ****ing job!!! Now i need a new one! bad thing is i might be working at ANOTHER kwik kar at a differnt location!

Robert no reason you should have to work somewhere that you're not happy. But you should have at least had your foot in the door somewhere else before you walked out. You can't let your emotions take over even when you know that you're getting the short end of the stick, your emotions aren't going to pay your bills even with a bad job.

Managers/owners are sometimes losers without fear that karma is going to bring them payback for jerking people around. They'll play with people's lives (financially) and think that they're better than everyone else because they can keep someone on the peg waiting, waiting and waiting for something that they're never going to deliver on.

Good luck and hopefully you'll land another job quickly.

You think someone that changes oil is really a must have?.. You threaten to leave.. they'd say okay good bye... No matter who you are... you are replaceable.... No sweat off their backs.

Only problem with a CDL is that you get no defensive driving offered if you get a ticket. There were a few things that changed in September 2003 and it was all bad for CDL. And lets face it folks, riding a bike and CDL don't mix too well.

Best bet is to get an education or continue an education and get away from working at a low paying job. Don't take it the wrong way, these jobs are great stepping stones to a better life. Those jobs are a dime a dozen and so are the people that are doing them. So the sad fact is that managers know this and use it to their advantage. Move on and never listen to promises made. Get it in writing if you want them to follow through.

NOBODY is a 'must have'. You never know if you don't try so why not give it a shot? What's the alternative? Run from job to job until you're 'happy'?
