Should I quit my part time job after 7 weeks?
7 weeks ago I was thrilled to get a part time job in the field I had retired from. I retired two years ago at 62 and during that time I frequently thought about working part time, so this job seemed perfect.
Well, now that I have the job I am so unhappy. Though it is in the same field of work I did previously, there are still many things I need to learn in this new environment and I just don't feel my supervisors are being very helpful.
It's just three of us - me and my two supervisors. I have mentioned a couple times that I need to be shown this or that, but things are just moving so slow and I am usually bored and miss the freedom retirement gave me.
I'm also upset because I have been given the responsibility of learning a new system for doing part of the job that was put in place shortly before I started which neither of my supervisors have learned to do, so it is pretty much my problem now to figure it out. There are people to call for help, but still, I made it clear during my interview that I had no experience with this system. I thought they would be showing me how to use it.
I just don't know what to do. The job pays well and I would feel bad leaving so soon, so I keep going back and forth between leaving and giving it more time. I would appreciate any thoughts on this. Thank you!
