So I am currently a full-time college student and I am also working 2 days a week because I wanna help my parents and also make my own money. So, recently I have been hired in a new workplace (cheesecake store) thanks to my friend who recommended me.
However, the problem is that in this new workplace, my manager keep on telling me to work faster, and improve my performance but so far I just worked 4 days in this new place and I keep on getting frustrated and mad at myself (whenever I do a mistake such as cutting the cake badly or not doing it well enough) up to the point that I am thinking about quitting.
Although my manager is very kind and easygoing, I can tell by his face and expression that he is getting frustrated and losing his patience because he have to train not only me, but many other new employees. However, my peers seems to be doing way better than I am at cutting the cakes and overall.
However, my only problem is not that I am making mistake, but also because I kept on being told that I work too slow but I am really trying my best to work as fast as I can while also doing it well I even skip my lunch during those 4 days so that I would try to catch on everything during that time. So, whenever I hear that I am working too slow I get even more frustrated at myself because even though I am trying my best, I feel like it is still not enough.
I've had 2 jobs before this one and I have never been told that I work slow nor did I do much mistakes or mistakes at all when being trained. I am really good at being proactive. But, even so, I do not think this is going to help me be a good worker in this new job. I really need some advice as what should I do, or what strategies can I take to improve this situation?
I am thinking about quitting, but I also feel bad for my friend because she was the one that helped me get into this job. Also, whenever I finish my shift, I get out very frustrated and disappointed at my self up to the point that is hard for me to do my homework and study for my classes after work. I really feel so useless and stupid right now.
