    I think we have all heard people say to not trust anyone in the workplace.

    More often that not, I agree with this statement, but having had a trusting relationship in the past with a colleague, I found it was such a huge plus. I'm curious as to what peoples opinions are? Do you strive to establish trust in the workplace or prefer to not even chance at as it could burn you in the end?

    Most jobs I've had you develop a relationship with some of the coworkers, but nobody likes or trusts the management. Just started a new job and it's weird because most of the management seems ok, but a lot of the other grunts seem cunty.

    The answer is : Yes.

    i've gotten rid of every business partner that I didn't trust.

    One was a pathological liar, one couldn't execute, and another was an unfortunate circumstance (they had other business trouble, and thought I was working against them to take control of the company).

    At start yes I found out I started job 5 years ago as production manager and got hated on at First
    Coming into place and having to order people about and people who have been longer there than you is hard to take I guess

    If involved in anything more complicated than a lemonade stand, being unable to trust your colleagues would make work next to impossible.

    Absolutely. Trust and morale are important. Both feed each other. People become less productive when all they’re worried about is covering their ass.

    Feels like the young people here don't respect the job and how good the pay is. I just moved from a dying town with next to no good jobs, so I appreciate the hell out of this job and do whatever im told immediately with no complaints.

    Good man
    Depends of course
    I know my place could pay more and if they did they would get more work out of them
    I'm basically Forman on shop floor so try and keep them happy

    Yeah they are a bit anal about certain details, but the pay is good for the work we do. And the main expectation is you work hard and pay attention to detail and quality. All of which seems pretty reasonable to me. But ive done much harder work for less money.

    I have learned never to trust anyone at all in any workplace. Even in hostile environments where the guy next to you should be watching your back (private sector). Workplace is nowhere to trust anyone- even those that are friends outside of the job.

    How so? What happened? Because I don't really understand what you're talking about.

    Picking orders in a warehouse. Huge building, but we alternate between walking around and riding these little scooters we can hook our order carts too.

    Use a little handheld computer to tell where to go. Then when the orders done you pack everything up nicely so it's ready to go on a plane or truck. Only been there a couple weeks but so far I like it. Lots of potential areas to work, you can get forklift certified, and there are lots of opportunities for overtime. Good blue collar work was hard to find in the last city I lived in. Just the oil companies and power plants, but they had a long waiting list so you had to know someone to get in
