Just quit a place after being there 3 days. Basically it was a job working in the shipping dept of a clothing company and you stand on your feet 10 hours a day filing orders. A guy that worked there wanted to know if I had gone to college, I said yeah I just got my degree, and he asked "What are you doing here?" So I woke up on the fourth day, my whole body was hurting so bad I could hardly move. So I emailed my hiring recruiter and said "Hey thanks but I made a bad decision here."
Anyone leave a job as soon as you got hired?
When you are just out of college and you go thru a recruiter like that you sometimes get some of the worse jobs. It is always best to stick to the recruiters that specialize in your area of study or the ones that are more geared to office jobs.
Don't misunderstand me either, I've supported myself since 14 and supported my parents since age 20. I've worked constantly from then on. I know what is good for me and what I'm capable of. It was lesson learned. Sometimes people in corporations deceive you. You move on.
I think you let that guy who said "Why are you here?" get into your head. True you have a degree, but at least you could of stuck with it and stacked ya paper. I don't know job didn't seem that bad to me, but maybe it was. Good Luck!
[QUOTE=nicoledee;1011 2425]If you JUST got you degree you are entry level anywhere you go. People start in the shipping department and eventually become CEO's. You have to put in work and earn it.

I worked a full-time job and two part-time retail jobs in college. You think being on your feet at one job is bad. Wake up 7 am every Saturday to work in a clothing store for 8 hours to get off and drive to another job to stand around another 6 hours and repeat on Sunday. Then get up 7am Monday for the full-time job just to get off at 5pm and work one of the part-time jobs till 10/11pm. And still had to study and still managed a 4.0gpa.
Well damn!!! When you did you find time to go to class???
No, I didn't know until I actually started working.
The recruiter should have told you this. Perhaps it was just an oversight but many are sneaky like that. Will send you on some shitty ass/very strenuous jobs and "fail" to provide a proper job description.
They didn't tell you the job requirements BEFORE you started the job?
Of course, it's your life and decision, and you are apparently young, but I would've stuck it out a bit longer. The fact that you left your job after such a short length of time will not look good on your resume.
Being on the job for that short of time, no need to put on a resume, one of friends who is a hiring manager for a large firm told me that years ago when I got started in the game.

When I was a teenager I quit working at Taco Bell after four hours.
It was either that or I was gonna throw something hot on the broad that bumped
me, had an attitude problem, and wouldn't answer me when I asked
what to put on a chalupa.
I agree that my body would have adjusted...and I would have been ok with it if I had applied to that position.
But I applied for an entirely different one and thats what they said they would give me. So I was lied to.
@ the bolded: Ugh! I HATE when that happens and it seems to be happening more often!
I was lied to when I was interviewed for a couple of my previous jobs. I also made a narrow escape several days ago. The people that were interviewing me left out a couple of details. When the HR person called me, she told me some info that they left out and I have no desire to work for that employer. My previous experience taught me that lying or omitting info is NEVER a good sign. It also didn't help that all of these places weren't organized. This is also a bad sign as well. If anyone has gone through this experience, find another job ASAP.
Lol I used to work at a warehouse that did fish bait and we had people never come back after lunch. It was hot as hell in there sometimes reaching 90-100 degrees with no ac sometimes, it reeked because they used certain foods to create the bait and you were on your feet allllll day. The first 3 days were hell but I made it because I needed the extra money.
In high school, I had 2 jobs then was soon as I graduated, I added on a 3rd and I'm only 25. I think the younger crowd (not that I am old) around 21 and younger don't have any work ethic. I have worked months at jobs then decided it wasn't for me but not a few days ESPECIALLY jobs working on your feet. The first few days WILL have you hurting because your body isn't used to it but after that you will be fine. Get some old school princess reeboks, cafeteria worker shoes or some padded insoles. Some places have those black thick mats if your on concrete standing in one area.
