Side jobs can be tricky. You know that each little bit you bring in can help out. At the same time it may be time to move on from a side job. Here are a few ways to know if you should quit your side job.
Agreements Are Not Met
When you were hired everything was pretty strait forward. You would work a certain amount of time or provide a certain amount of product, and you would get paid at a certain time. Since then it seems like you are revisiting that agreement with your employer. Either you don’t have the time to make good on your end of the bargain or your just not getting paid.
In either case it’s important to realize that you have a reputation to uphold. Behave professionally. Address the situation with your employer. Perhaps they can accept less from you or perhaps you could be more flexible with your payment schedule. When you can’t meet in the middle thank your employer for the opportunity and give your notice.
Relationships Have Broken Down
You and your employer may have started out cordial, but that has deteriorated. You may feel that your job isn’t what you envisioned it to be. You may also find that your employer expects more from you than was originally agreed and plays on your fear of job loss when you stand up for yourself.
When relationships break down between you and your boss it’s best to try to sit down and work through it. If, however, you feel that you have tried to work through it already or that it’s pointless to try it’s best to find a more ideal employment situation.
A Better Offer
Even when you do like your employer and nothing is wrong between the two of you, the job just isn’t meeting your financial needs. You may have found a better job or have been offered one. It’s important to do what is right for you and take the better offer. While job loyalty is admirable , so is the ability to pay all your bills.
