Is it a bad sign if your immediate coworkers can't remember your name after 5 months on a new job?

    If you are working at a small place then yes it is a bad sign. If it's a big company, well you shouldn't care so much

    You just maybe insignificant to them.... in that case its bad. It could be the coworker and his short term memory problem.. that's bad too.

    Depends. Are you trying to stand out?

    Unless you are trying to be "invisible," in which case it is a good sign that you are succeeding.

    If it were only one or two then it's no big deal but if all of them can't then there is a big problem. It also depends on how closely you work with them. If you work with most on a daily bases then you need to indeed find out what is going on. That is if this is more than just hypothetical!

    It's a sign that you work with a bunch of self absorbed imbeciles. After five months it is inexcusable that they don't remember your name.

    I was the person who couldn't remember people's names after 5 months. At that point it's a little awkward to ask.... thankfully they usually had nametags so it was alright.

    No. LOL Never. Although it looks like most people think it's about me. Typical SHers. heh.

    I didn't think so. You don't look like a forgettable person.

    All through high school, this guy (I don't remember his name) called me Mike or Mikey. I never told him that my name was not Mike.

    I thought it was funny.

    The worst that's happened to me is people completely calling me the wrong name; Allison, Alice, Felicia, etc. and mispronouncing it.

    I would say that you have failed to make much of an impression. Maybe you should change your deodorant

    Think about all the stuff you could've gotten away with. Start eating their lunches, they'll remember your name.
