The Workplace & Job Hunting

She/Her/Queen
So after working my ass off for a year from home and taking on multiple roles at a job where I'm doing three person's work. I've finally been rewarded with a good chunk of bonus for last year's efforts! My boss' shady remark as she revealed the news to me:

"So you're going to Europe again?"

I just laughed because I've been clocked and she doesn't know that I bought 4 tickets to Beyonce shows in May and my Emirates ticket has been booked. I just haven't applied for that one month break dddd. SHE BETTER APPROVE IT!

I've been working a lot in retail since 8-ish years and been working 32 hours a week at my current place for the last 1,5 year because I wasn't sure what study I wanted to do. The workload is crazy and it also doesn't help that I am standing on my legs for 10 hours a day (including the unpaid time before and after the shift) lol.

Yesterday I signed my new contract, starting in July, for a IT Traineeship that also posts me at different companies. I should honestly be thrilled because I get paid better and the days won't be that long but somehow I am anxious about everything new and I just hope it will be allright.
 
What does it mean when an institution you know hates you, is mad at you and does not trust you, comes around and offers you a job out of the blue?

Either run OR they know how good you are despite the personal animosity and are prepared to look the other way. We'd need more context.
 
Someone awesome at my place applied to take over running it when the founder left. They overlooked him and now he's leaving, which is going to create an absolute shitstorm.

Worse still, the person they gave it too is ex-US-army and keeps sending emails with titles such as 'Maggot' about drill exercises, the time he flew a helicopter somewhere, and having 'a military attitude' about shit.

We work in education.

That's nightmarish and yet... not surprising at all. I hope things somehow fall into place with minimal collateral damage because hot damn.
 
Have any of you worked in a gay sauna (or some other dedicated LGBTQ+ type of venue), and if so how have you listed it on your CV?

I'm applying for jobs in a new city but afraid of any potential homophobic employers FFF.

Can I ask, what your experience of working in a gay sauna was like please? I always see a few in London hiring, and I've thought about the idea of working at one whilst I find a job that I would be more passionate for.

Sure! It's honestly the most chill job I've ever had nn. I've worked there a little bit over 1 year and 6 months. My tasks were mostly just reception, retail sales, and like basic cleaning and doing laundry for the shower/spa towels we provide. You'll meet a few weirdo customers every now and then who think 'you working there = you want to hookup with them', but they're pretty easy to deal with when you tell them you're not interested AKA or they need to leave FFFF. But ya some shifts can be veeery busy (esp. the weekends) and you'll be on your feet nonstop, and then the slower days you'll basically be just sitting down on your phone for 90% of the shift bored out of your mind cos there's literally nothing to do if there's only a couple people there.
 
After working under the same person for the past ten years who I adore, pretty much knows me inside out and who has become a genuine friend it's looking very likely that I'll be moving to a new team (a similar role) and the manager will be the one person in the unit I don't particularly get on with.

I know the most important thing is the job itself but I think your relationship with management can make a big difference to your job.
