My worst job was also 1-2months (at most), but was in a publishing-company.
In my job before this, instructions were clear: via direct fact-to-face communication (in the relevant boss's office or on my desk), written assignment-info was provided on paper, and/or e-mails with the relevant information always worked. Direct clarifications with the assignment-issuers were also possible via Microsoft® Skype®, Skype for Business®, and/or (later) Teams® at anytime withing office-hours (though their replies were not always instant, understandably).
With this horrible job, no such luck. My direct-boss was almost never available face-to-face. (My provided e-mail account was pretty much useless, since almost nothing ever came while I was there. There was no Skype, Skype for Business, or Teams.) My boss (es?) would talk to me (if you could call it that) mostly verbally & only on certain occasions via middle-men, who would vary wildly (depending on who know what?) and maybe even would give instructions at almost the same time. If I miss any of their hints (Yes, freaking "HINTS" of all things! WHY the Hell HINTS‽), well… 😬 Enjoy wandering around the office trying to get access to anyone in your chain-of-command, awkwardly trying do anything remotely useful (or, at least, "look busy") while the people around you are obviously actually working and even coordinating moves together, reviewing notes, trying to piece together the last communiques, generally knowing you're pretty much just useless there (and being mocked for it by some), and not really knowing what the Hell you're supposed to even do there.
By the time I discovered I violated a part of my employment-terms but was hinted a way to restore my status, I pretended I didn't get it, and 'sadly & hesitantly' signed-out for the last time, drove out of there in the middle of the work-day, purposefully failed to appear for 3work-days straight, and never looked back. At home, I was surprised a boss finally actually contacted me (What novel concept! Why wasn't this revolutionary idea tried at the very beginning‽) and tried to convince me to return. Return? Hell, NO！！！
