I plan to quit my job - I’ve only had it for a month but I don’t foresee any improvement in the situation. I live in a fairly small city (80,000) and of course when I quit I’m going to do my best not to burn any bridges, but I don’t know if that’s possible - my boss (the owner) and I are equally unhappy with each other at this point.
I have two interviews today and one tomorrow. What is a good way to explain why I’m quitting?
It is an entry level job but there is a lot to learn - the learning curve is expected to be at least one year. The training so far has been disorganized and inconsistent. The owner doesn’t handle stress well and I find that by the end of each workday I am equally stressed. Throughout the day I feel not only useless but stupid because she expects me to be busy and helpful, but without the appropriate training, I make more mistakes than either of us would like. It’s been extremely frustrating and at this point in my life I just cannot find the strength of will to stick with this job, especially when there are so many jobs in my city right now. None of them will make me rich, but there are many that pay at least as well, with hopefully better working conditions.
Any ideas how to put a positive spin on this for prospective employers? Thanks!
