Last year I took a ten month trip to Fargo, ND to find work (to break out of long term unemployment). I returned back to the Kansas City area and stayed as a result from a car accident (was meant to be a short trip). While being in Kansas City, I got a fast food job (McD) in Lenexa. I found out that the new job didn't pay me what I had expected (what I was used to) from the Fargo McD job. First, there wasno night differential pay in the corporate store in Lenexa, as well as there is only three people (when there's supposed to be five). Teamwork is not the buzz but lightning speed multi-tasking. The nights are just as busy (but not always) as it is during the day. Two months into the job, I gave my two weeks notice. I was just getting tired of being trapped in a job, doing the job of three people, without any differential pay. This is worse when I get trapped in the early breakfast rush when the day shift does not come in yet, and the might manager never responds to my calls for help (just sits in the office talking, eating, or whatever.
Just after giving my two weeks, my hubby got his furloughs order (sequester), which added to,my cause to quit my McD job for a higher paying assembly job. (I haven't heard from the assembly job HR yet, but checking today. If in case I don't get the job, I'm fully aware and emotionally prepared to move back to Fargo.
My husband is not very resilient toward change and has a temperament toward most jobs. Getting a second job is not a part of his plans. (And he snaps at me whenever I bring up the issue.)
I have a BSBA in technology that hasn't panned (not even in Fargo) because a lack of 3 to 5 years of experience. (I tried to freelance for experience, but was told that it didn't have the dynamics that they (employers) were looking for.
Q: Why does it seem that when I take action to make things better, it does in one area, but is destructive in another area (such as helps out financially but is damaging to my personal life to my husband)?
