I'm really depressed. I know why. I work for a company that will not promote me or help me go further because I work with idiot managers and directors. Its all about sales, not a nuturing, respective workplace where things get done. Evidently, as a new store manager was hired, I get less hours and while the sentiment among all the staff is the same (he's a douchebag and no one likes him). Now my real problem is that I want to leave this company. I want to pursue other things and work for a company that will at least acknowledge the work their employees put in. I don't care too much about pay, but you know, I'd like to make enough money to invest, buy another car, etc. But I don't feel that the jobs available here (unfortunately, low pay, retail jobs) are worth my time and experience. And I don't want to stay in that environment of constantly meeting sales goals. I'd rather do more productive things like spreadsheets, meeting analysts, etc. I don't know what to do. I'm at a dead end.
