Work, interviews, New jobs, Anxiety and depression

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hey guys, so I'm new here and I am actually glad I've joined this to be able to speak.

So, I was working in retail, and I thought i was doing well even though that they never seemed interested whatsoever. I basically had to teach myself, but the people there (exept one person in management ) were so nice, but unfortuntally I clashed with the person in management to much and my contract was terminated.

I was petrified of getting a new job, I've had a phone interview and face to face interview after that, but got rejected. Then today, I went for an interview, and got the job, but it took me two go's to go there.

I'm scared, petrified at that. They were all looking at me, I don't like labling people, but there was like kind of chavy people there. I felt intimidated, I felt like I didnt belong there, I feel like the work that they do is way to much even though it's picking deliverys.

I don't know what to do, I start Monday, but I'm scared, I can't breathe when I think about it, which is constantly.

Anyone else been like this [rolleyes]

    Hi there,

    I'm in exactly the same boat, I hated my old job, I managed to get a new one too and I start on Monday as well. It's been one of the most stressful things to do, to pass my exams and get a new job within 2 months. Nobody liked me in my previous job and I am terrified of making a bad impression again in the new job on Monday. 

    It's ok to be scared, starting a new job is a terrifying thing. It's like when a kid starts at a new school. All it is, is that it means you care about it. Maybe the reason they hired you is because they want their staff to be more like you, and to move away from their chavvy staff. smile
