So, i’m 20 and a college student and i got hired in the month of November to work as a guest advocate, i’m finishing up my last weeks as the season is about to end and i am being let go, In one month of working there my anxiety has gotten so bad i am officially starting medication. i have had anxiety since i was a fairly young teen but it has never been bad enough to require medication ( as now i almost pass out and have extreme heart palpations ) when i began working there i was hardly trained, i was just shoved at the cash register and told to just ‘loose my fear’ most of what i learned and it isnt much, was by messing up and figuring it out on my own. i hardly ever get help from anyone as when i ask for it any supervisor or person above me looks almost annoyed to help me. everytime i go in i’m never given any walkie or anything to use to call for help when i need it. i used to really like target as a store but even working one month is one of the worst things ,, and being as this is my first job it makes me not to be in a rush to find another… my anxiety is so bad i want to call out of work for my next shift but since its a sundays shift i doubt they’ll see my personal health a valid reason to not go into work . i really regret taking the job and my mental break down after my very first shift should have been the red flag to not stay but i did and now i cant wait to leave.
