Any advice on what to do when working in a toxic environment?

Colleagues are fine, but the boss is 99% bipolar. Nobody can stand him and I'm starting to think this stress ain't worth it

Got an interview at plane overhaul place. The director liked me and gave me couple bucks more then my pervious job. So I went to take the drug test and it been almosy two weeks and they haven't called me back to start. My homie who works there told me I pass the drug test but has no idea what's going on. You think I should call them friday if they dont call me by then. I declined another job offer too not working right now and need some bills to pay. Smh

I would have kept all doors open to jobs in this climate, nothing is 100% until you sign on to the job. If you have no problem with the drug test, a follow up shouldn't be a problem.

On a side not I've been rejected from like my 3 or 4th job is this city, lol if I didn't have a job making way more I'd be salty right now. I can't wait to move or get a higher salary job in D.C. As I said before I've never been rejected from so many jobs in my life. I can't imagine how it is for people with no experience or education.. Damn!

Not even receiving a rejection is irritating. At least an email is sufficient.

As my start date from my new job approached I got worried because I haven't heard from them, so I go into the office show them my contract and theanagee takes my name and number down and tell me the hiring manager will call me because he's not in. Soon after I get a call from corporate office asking me for copies of my liscene and that she will call me the next day. I never get the call the next day and my start date was supposed to be the day after I got the call. What should I do guys?

I hear this man. It all depends on your living situation. Do you need the job to afford the lifestyle your living? Can you go without it for a temporary time while getting into a new position?

I've been in that situation before and I let it break me. Stressed me to no end. But now that I look back at it I would have done a couple things differently. I would have learned more about the supervisor before starting the position to know how they act. I would have been more objective of the situation instead of being subjective. I truly believe that you are the one that creates your own heaven and hell so you have to learn how to turn people's negativity into a fire to get your job done. It's hard brah I know.

Not everyone in this world is gonna be nice to you. Me personally, I treat such people as robots in my mind. Just blank emotionless robots. It helps me not give them the satisfaction of getting to me.

It's also important to know your worth. If you feel like dipping then now is the time to spruce up that resume and start looking for other work. Stress is a killer. Not worth it in the long run with all the health implications involved. Read some books to take your mind off and help you understand the situation better:

Dale Carnegie's How to stop worrying and start living & How to influence people
Jeffery Gitomer's "little" book series is phenomenal
Books on persuasion like influence by Robert Cialdini or Nick Kolenda's Methods of persuasion.

Record yourself and watch the playback. Tweak.

Or have a friend go over questions with you and take it serious.

Starting my new job tomorrow! I graduated this past spring with my BS in Mechanical Engineering. Did not have any internships and had a 2.8 GPA so I knew it was going to be an uphill battle to land a full-time job. I've filled out 180 online applications and had 4 interviews from my graduation in May until last week. A recruiter from Aerotek hit me up on LinkedIn and said there was an entry-level temp-to-hire opportunity that might interest me so I went ahead and gave him a call. Set up an interview with the company and got the job this past Friday. I'm on a six month contract and being paid hourly...then if they decide to direct hire me I'll get a pay bump and get put on salary.

However...it is quite a commute with traffic. It's 40 minutes without traffic, and anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half with the morning traffic. They asked me if I was okay with the commute and I explained to them that I would have to do it until I was directly hired on a permanent basis, because I can't just move out there and sign a lease with no job security after the six month contract is up. The GM said that if I am still there after two months than I'm there for good. Either way, I'm just going to go in and bust my ***, get paid, and get some experience even if it doesn't lead to a permanent position.

I also have a question, my girl moved out to California for a year of service for Americorp and she is coming back for the holidays at the end of December. I promised her before she left that I would pick her up from the airport when she came back....is it a bad idea to ask for that day off since I just got the job? Not sure how to handle the situation.
