When is too soon to resign?
I've been at my current company 3 wks and I'm ready to call it quits. It's a chaotic nightmare. The company was just taken over by another company, and so it's normal for there to be some difficulty during a transition. It seems that the new company has a habit of coming in and firing all of the leadership when they take over an organization. My soon to be boss was fired the day before I started. There are a lot of new people who were hired around the same time as me, and we're all feeling burned out and it's only wk 3. The new company also keeps stressing transparency, but that's just a catchy buzz word and isn't true.
My position is really two positions in one-HR and Finance. There are a ton of outstanding bills that I didn't know about, and so I'm constantly getting calls from vendors looking for payment. There are bills that have been double paid, and others not paid at all. Misplaced checks and then I have to call and ask people to stop payment and reissue payments. I have employee files in my office that managers and whoever else just walk in and take, and then do not return them, or put them back misfiled. I have employees who constantly come to me as the only HR person here, and they bypass their own supervisors for simple things like missed time punches. There seems to be a lack of trust. Almost every wk, someone is walking out and quitting. I get it that ppl don't always do well w/ change or may not have been following the rules from the beginning, but this can't be everyone.
I have a training schedule, but my training has been rushed and interrupted. I haven't even had a full tour of the building, I have located the copy paper and the rest room on my own. I'm supposed to have one on one meetings w/ the interim director, and the first one was cancelled, the other two were both interrupted and cut short. I also found out after accepting the position and starting here, that I'd occasionally have to work a weekend. That's a deal breaker for me because I attend church on Sundays and that's my peace and refuge to get through the week. I also left my last position due to wanting more of a work life balance and due to poor management/communication/organization. I also learned that we only get 7 holidays off which means that what I thought was generous in having 27 PTO days really isn't because I'll burn through them to take off for holidays.
The other thing that's really frustrating me is that I have mandatory trainings to complete online and I can't get them completed while at work due to the constant interruptions and lack of organization. When I mentioned this to the interim director, his response to do them at home because I'm salaried. So I'm supposed to work 8 hrs here where I'm struggling to even get away for a lunch break, and then drive home and get right back on the computer to complete my new hire trainings. NO! When I'm home, I'm focused on home, not work. I'm doing two positions at a low salary as it is. If in my first 3 wks. I can't get the trainings done, this is a sign of how it'll be over the course of a year.
Not sure what to do here, but I know this isn't the right fit for me.

I am not quite sure what to put this in the comments.
But at my work, they pay the males more than they pay the females, even if the females have degrees. I have three degrees. The two men that I work with get more then I do. The one that just got hired gets $2 more an hour then I do & has no experience or degrees, the other one has been there one month longer then me & is handsome & never even finished school with a very shady past & gets $3 more an hour then I do. I have also worked in this industry for over 25 years. I’m very upset about this & have already approached management about it twice. Any suggestions?

I ran across this article on salary negotiation.
The tips come from an Indiana University professor of business law and management. I thought I would share since I've seen posts in the past asking how to negotiate.

I have been working for a company for over 7 years.
I'm a valued worker and am excellent at what I do. I am an accounts manager and I spend a lot of time working with customers and ensuring the accounts of sales projects are correct and in scope of their contracts. However, our workplace is toxic. The salesMEN are very demanding and demeaning of their coworkers. They are non-communicative, demanding, and rude. The boss seems to be more interested in money from sales than the moral of the overall workers. I have had confrontations with a couple of these salesmen as I try to provide support to them. My boss just told me he wants me to work from home because they feel I'm am difficult to work with. I am concerned about not being able to fully complete my job tasks now as I am isolated from my co-workers. Even though me boss has provided me with computers, dual monitors, phone and a printer at my home, it feels like I'm being pushed out.

I have a hearing in my county with the Department of Labor and the School System where I worked.
I was a clerk who was forced to resign so they wouldn’t have to pay unemployment. I appealed and now three years later, I have a hearing. Any suggestions on the best way to handle these jerks ?

Hate that the job searching and application process takes so long.
I'm fortunate to have a job but it's not a career role. I took the role to relocate but I'm finding that the position doesn't afford regular lunch hours to have interviews or provide the PTO I was offered when I accepted the role.
I know it's time to leave but I'm finding it so hard with events I need to run at night and teams during the day that I can't fully commit to job searching. I'm starting to feel that I made a mistake accepting this position but I needed the money. When I do get home, I spend time searching but roles have closed or already received the x number of applicants. I'd appreciate your advice. Is there anything I can do to combat this situation and I'm willing to put in the work.
