I hate my job but can’t quit

Mar 28, 2018 23 Comments

So I got this job in Europe last year & relocated. The team I work with is really toxic. Racist jokes & all. I want to quit so badly but it’s taking sometime to find a new job. I do have Apple & Amazon phone screens scheduled though. I really can’t stand it here anymore. Should I just quit & keep searching for a new job? Anyone ever been in similar situation? This is actually my first experience with racism & I can’t explain how depressed this makes me feel. Like is this what people go through? This is really shocking! Like wtf!

I can easily get another job at a regular company but I really want to get into one of the big 4’s

    If it’s that bad. Record what’s going on. Go and get a huge severance. Then move on.

    Racist toward Africans?
    Is the racism directed at you personally?

    I thought Germany was progressive and forward thinking.

      LOL at Deutsche being progressive and forward thinking.

      From someone who also worked for them for years.

      Don't talk to HR, they're gonna fire you and protect the company, HR isn't your friend

      Okay. If you don't have to work to maintain your residency you should leave

    It is normal in Europe. Nothing you can do it about it. Suing would be a waste of time.

    Document, sue, move on. The only way the company will address it is if it hurts them

    I doubt any employers will think twice about you leaving an international job before getting your next job. It's really hard to interview when you're in another country. And international experience is great!
