I am working for an inconsiderate manager. I had previously been assistant manager and was forced to train a new manager while being put up to manager. After I finished training the new manager, the supervisor bumped me back down. This manager was very inappropriate while on the clock. I confronted her her and told her that she was making an uncomfortable workplace with her actions and she told me that I make her just as uncomfortable with my attitude. Because of the fact that I had been bumped down, She thought she could have the authority to cut my usual 44 hours a week down to 13 hours a week. To make it even worse, she said that I had to apologise if I wanted more hours. I eventually had to because i was basically getting no money in my pay check. After I apologised, She said she would consider giving me more hours. she never did. This woman was taking phone calls during work, Showing inappropriate pictures to me and the staff, neglected cleaning and other chores, and stayed clocked in for hours on salary while leaving the store to got home or go get food. I had confronted her a second time and she still said my attitude was a problem, but the company was losing money. She kept telling me that I have to go through her with any problems and never go to the supervisor. I ended up having to go through to the supervisor because she wasn't listening to me about anything. The supervisor wasn't doing anything about is and I couldn't work the necessary hours to clean everything because I wasn't allowed. I ended up calling the building inspection people because many things weren't been kept up to code. Without even knowing that I was the one that did this, she automatically blamed me for doing it and fired me. Which I guess was the last straw for her because she hated me. It didn't matter much in concerns with money because i was barely making any money anyway. I just wanted to know what I should have done differently in this situation. Can anyone tell me if they have had a similar experience?

Please share your success networking stories - if you found a job through networking how did you do it?
How many people did you call? Did you find contacts on LinkedIn and approach?
I am having hard time with it. I was given notice and emailed/ texted people just to connect and talked. Very few even responded. I know it is a numbers game, but it is so lonely and discouraging - like begging for a job...
But they say it is still more effective than applying on the web.

I saw how my colleagues were freaking out and then I heard about this concept. So I did what I thought was quietly quitting - I just did the minimum required of me. Then we got our monthly numbers and I was ahead of plan!
Give it a shot!

Once someone signs an offer letter, is it generally okay to give notice to your present employer?
(Basically, it's a contract, yes?)

Is it discrimination to let the oldest employee work all nights and weekends when a younger inexperienced person is taken into a position?
We did have fair scheduling until this person came into the group, she says she can not get a baby sitter. So another employee and myself have all the nights, except one. He gets a couple of days during the week, I sometimes get one on the weekend?

Searching the internet
I was looking through job postings that are in my field just to see what's out there and I'm finding an increasing number of employers requiring a master's degree and at least 5 years of experience with salaries in the 40k range...you have got to be kidding me.
This isn't so much about me but I find that offensive. A master's degree to be paid less than the national average in the US...got it. I'm also shocked because when I started in this field about 2 years ago in an entry-level position with a bachelor's degree that was the salary range with the requirements being a bachelor's degree in a related field and no experience with the specific job required but other general skills related to it. I feel I got extremely lucky but I'm also wondering if you can move up salary-wise in this field with experience alone.
The way the goalposts are constantly being moved is outrageous.
