I wanna quit, how do i say this?
just ended my shift, first day being a gift wrapper. Tired and demotivated as the way i wrapped for customers wasn’t up to standards. customers even said “Give me the some wrapping paper, I go home wrap.”
I was stressing the entire time, i realised I wasn’t cut for this job at all. I want to quit.
But how do I say it to my manager as it’s quite embarrassing that i have only worked for one day and I still have like two shifts left this week.
I don’t have the motivation do this kind of things right. I will probably go back to my original jobs (f&b) as I feel like I could do better than gift wrapping.
any advices on how to tell my manager about it? thank u
- During my part time job during uni break I worked in popular – stationery dept.
Unfortunately I had to wrap gifts when my supervisor wasn’t around.
Everytime I wrapped gifts I took too long and it’s really very ugly. Some customers even stopped me and wrap it in front of me. I don’t blame them, I suck. I kept doing my job anyway and tried to improve.
My opinion, keep at it. If anything else its teaching u about the importance of grit.
- Hi OP- I know this is really demotivating, but stick with it.
Tell people it’s your first day and you’re still learning how to do it nice.
The stakes are INCREDIBLY low, you will not ruin anyones Christmas and nobody will die.
Worth sticking it out and making that money. Unless, of Course it’s easy for you to pick up something else.
