  • Keep your head low and just do what you're supposed to. In the meanwhile you can look for another job. People will always gossip and talk crap no matter where you are, it just sounds like these 'ladies' are more blunt than most.

  • don't worry abou tthose jerks and i mean the colleagues who are female... jeez you are not there to be popular, its not high school sorry it is for THEM! try to stick it out fo rthe money and for the experience and to HAVE a job at all! i am not yellin gat you i am just mad at those weird! anyway that is negative energy so just do your own thing and thinkyour own thughts...if the atmosphere is that way it must be sort of not a plum job so mayeb try to get a radfio to keep you company. who cares if you go to lunch by yourself or bring form home. go "take care of" yourself in the bathroom to give yourself som efun lol... do you feel liek cryign because you are shunned or they talk about You?? or are you sad for whom they rag on? what nasty creatures those people. pay them no attention and even think of cool comebacks or laugh at them out LOUD when they get stupid. wow. wishign you luck and persistence girl!! high five

  • Do you like the job? If so then I would try to avoid the women, or if that is not possible think about talking to HR and telling them the women are making the workplace uncomfortable with their gossiping and comments. If you do not like the job then it might be a good idea to start sending out resumes and looking for another job. Keep working this job and try to not let the women bother you, and as soon as you find something better give notice.

  • Be The Good Example & Don't Join In. & Stay Until You Find A Better Paying Job. I Always Find That If I Don't NEED the Job, I Have More Confidence In The Interview & End Up Getting It.

  • I would look for a new job and plan to leave this place. I have sorked for mentally stressing jobs before, and I hate to cry at work!! You deserve better atmosphere than that, in order to do your best work.

  • You need to grow a thick skin until you get an other job. You don't just want to up and quit a job you just started because that will reflect badly on you not them. Instead, tell yourself you are there for the experience and the pay check and then continue to look for something else.
