There he is... :-°

:-D

Seriously, that is *gulp* exactly what I was going to say. Bring it up and explain that you told him on day one about the trip. Apologize for not filling out the form sooner, but profess ignorance because it's true. If your boss does not come around, then he is a manipulative jerk (for knowing in advance and not caring), and you don't want to work for him.

The job is probably replaceable. The $325 is not.

I'd quit, right away. If you get time off then your boss will think that your a flake and if you dont go then you'd be his all summer.

As a past manager of a few businesses, this is one thing I would suggest you never do. It's not hard, and actually normal, for employers to pull a past work history on new hires and/or new employees. Intentionally leaving off a job on your application can either stop you from getting the new job, or get you fired if you have already been hired. It makes you look dishonest and you knowingly falsified documents. Not the best way to start, or try to get a new job. I wouldn't suggest trying this.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.

Understood and agreed under normal circumstances. I was just saying that certain jobs don't check squat. I don't know what type of background check they do in a supermarket.

Exactly. There are many summer jobs out there. I wouldgo on the trip and take a week off. It's not your fault that he didn't tell you about the form you had to fill out. Your a Newbie at your job and if your boss can't understand he's an idiot, imo. ;-D

I agree that some jobs don't check much on background. As to a supermarket, it depends on what position you're applying for. A cashier has to be bonded, so that's one common spot where they pull an employment history.

Just be careful if you leave a job off your resume. ;-)
