Unhappy with my current job that I just started a month ago and want to go back to my old job.
I work two part-time jobs and been at both for about 1.5 year. I quitted one of my jobs about a month ago that I was on good terms with everyone there. My boss and coworkers were sad to see me go. I wanted to leave for better salary. However, I've been at this new part-time job for a month now, and it isn't a good fit at all. I don't fit with the culture/vibe of the office. Everybody here seems unfriendly and there seems to be underlying tension that you can feel. There's that "walking on eggshells" feeling. At the end of my shifts, I feel tensed and anxiety. I'm constantly being thrown under the bus and reported by coworkers here. I just don't feel appreciated or respected by coworkers and by my new boss. Alot of unclear expectations and no real training. I really don't think "things will just get better" with time.
I'm starting to regret taking this job even though I'm making more money and want to go back to my old job. Luckily, I still have my 2nd part-time job to fall back on if I quit this job, but I do want to work full-time.
I've talked with my old boss yesterday and he would be glad to have me back. Is there a stigma of being a "boomerang" employee though? Is this common?
How should I approach giving notice to my current employer that it's not working out? Should I tell my current employer that I plan on going back to my old workplace or is that really none of their business? I don't want to burn bridges. But then again, it would be good to let current employer know that I'm appreciated elsewhere especially at my previous job who would be happy to take me back.
Should I even list the job that didn't work out on my resume though? It was only a month and I'm going back to my old boss. Also, I'm still currently working at the 2nd part-time job.
