Top or flop?

Before applicants decide on a job, it is important to look out for certain warning signs that indicate poor working conditions.

Anyone who voluntarily quits their old job has probably had a quarrel with their employer and the prevailing working conditions for a long time.

Everything should therefore be different in the new job - new team, new boss and ideally a fulfilling job.

However, to

avoid ending up

in the pan from a mess, you should

carefully examine job offers

and watch out for certain warning signs.

They could be harbingers of a really bad job!

1. High turnover

If the department is desperately looking for new staff because

one employee is quitting after the other,

that is a very bad sign.

Short employment relationships and many dismissals can indicate a high workload, a bad mood in the team or an uncomfortable, perhaps even narcissistic boss.

Therefore, always ask about the reasons why the position is being filled.

It can help clarify whether or not you should accept the offer.

Perhaps one of your friends knows someone on the team and can tell you about the true mood within the company.

Also interesting:

“What are your weaknesses?” This is how you answer this delicate application question without lying.

2. Promises for the future that will never be kept

A raise after the probationary period?

Or more responsibility as soon as you are trained?

As long as such framework conditions are not recorded in writing, such

promises for the future are just hot air

.

They are supposed to get you to sign the employment contract, but they are rarely actually kept.

Always have such promises, including specific objectives, made in writing.

3. Mistakes that run through the entire application process

Loveless e-mails full of spelling mistakes, constantly changing contact persons and then your interlocutor makes you wait for minutes before the job interview.

If

mishaps and mistakes run through the entire application process

, you can hardly hope for a professional work environment in which employees are valued.
