    So, I've been working as a grocery clerk for about a year now while taking classes, and it's been mad chill. I never realized it before I started smoking, although it was a poorly run place, it had a very "local and friendly" tone to it. After I started smokin with some management, I realized that it was far more relaxed than that. Almost like it created a fully functional community.

    Over the past 3 or so months, we've been under a new manager, and he's been sticking to the corporate guidelines like no other. There's been changes that I havdn't noticed at first until today. It appears that even over the past few days, he's replaced a lot of the 'less appealing' people (at least in the minds of the corporate big-shots.) It looks like there are going to be a lot of changes at the store, and the job responsibility will get tigher for the same or less pay.

    Does anyone think it's a good idea to start looking for a job that maybe fits my lifestyle a little better? I'm in the environmental science field in school, and I'm thinking about persuing some type of sustainable agriculture. Maybe I should start looking for something in my career field? (Some type of organic farm or something?)

    Or have i just smoked too much today?:smoke:
  2. First off, you can never smoke too much.

    But if you feel uncomfortable working for "The Corporation" then you should find a job. Honestly though, quitting a nice job you already have just because some new guy wants to instill some new rules is kind of stupid. Just follow the rules, say "Yes sir" and "No sir" and you'll be fine.

    But if you can find a better job, go for it.
  3. I want to agree, but if you're already a declared major in college, I don't think there's anything wrong with at least scoping out the field and looking for something relevant you can do.

    I know the times are hard with jobs right now, but ask around personally to everyone you know, friends, neighbors, anyone, and see if they know anyone with some kind of internship they can offer you.

    Just do the scoping out before you quit, of course. No fun being jobless.
  4. Good point for sure. I tucked in my shirt mad fast today. GOtta keep the cash flow, and if it means I have to suck it up for a while, I guess it's worth it in the long run.
  5. You can NEVER start your career too early. Be an intern somewhere - might not be much $ but probably still more than a grocery store..
