Drama at #HowardJanitorial

I got in an argument over something stupid and I quit. It really was stupid too.

I quit because I felt like there was no future where I was at.

So after 6 years of the same day in day out grind and the massive disrespect from my "superiors" on a daily basis, I quit, I do not have another job lined up just yet but I still feel better than I have in years. like a million ton weight has been taken off my shoulders.

It can be scary but exhilarating to finally quit a job that you hated. I remember getting that very same feeling when I left one of my old jobs. Just make sure that once the initial buzz of being free wears off you're ready to roll up your sleeves and go into overtime to find a job quickly! I wish you all the best, Damien!

Accident at #HydroLogic

The company promised health insurance coverage. This was in consideration that I handled some chemicals that are known as hazardous to health. If the person doing the test is in frequent contact with those chemicals, they may cause injurious harm, physically and mentally. That health insurance coverage that management promised did not happened. So, I resigned.

Typecast

I quit my job last year in the medical diagnostic industry where I was global product support manager. With that company I managed a team of 7 engineers, was a regional sales support/product manager in UK, did training for customers and service engineers and did strategic marketing over a period of 18 years. Prior to that I was a medical technologist working in the clinical laboratory for 18 years. I am now trying to find a low stress job with medical benefits in Myrtle Beach, SC area but seem to be hitting dead ends every time I apply for positions here. I don't seem to be able to position myself for jobs I know I am capable of, but employers most likely think I am over qualified for or because I have no specific experience for the job. I have many talents including project management skills, organizational, leadership, writing and computer. How do I market these non medical diagnostic skills to get into a position that is not in the medical field? Any advice is helpful.

Resign or Stay

I've been on my current job for less than two years. I am facing safety issues, hostile environments, harassment by employees, no professional boundaries, tons of work (up to 10 hours a day), and very low compensation. I have a Masters degree and over 5 years of experience. I spoke with my supervisor about the issues and her response was " this is the culture of the business". I informed her that I was looking for another job. She informed me that she will give me a reference. Should I resign or stay.

It really depends on what your job is, and whether you are unhappy at this job. Look at things such as does the job challenge you to become more? Does it give you a chance to move ahead and create an impassioned feeling that you are reaching for the stars? You don't want to get stuck in a mud hole, but you don't have a lot of choices when most companies are hiring as many young, 18- 21 years old, so they don't get stuck with workers who are in the middle of their careers. Young people are not, for the most part, wanting to settle down. I, personally have 8 yrs. in a college background, but with the new generation, I haven't much of a chance to find a job worthy of my skills. And with most of my managers being half my age, below 25, be sure the job you leave doesn't leave you cleaning cattle stalls.

Daura, Take the reference and start looking for something better. Remember that trying to find a new job when you already have a job is better. Get motivated and make time to get out of there ASAP!

I Quit!!!

I got my dream job offer. The only catch is it doesn't start until the beginning of April. The other issue is that my company is known for immediately cutting the benefits of anyone who says that they're leaving. I love my manager and want to give him as much time as possible to find replacement, but I also can't afford to lose benefits for the next month and a half. Is there any compromise?

Can you do COBRA? I believe that if you pay for benefits, you are also allowed to keep them under COBRA, but you may be paying a bit more. I would look into it right away, and then make sure you give the two weeks with a proper letter of resignation. People are right, you don't want to burn your bridges, regardless of not wanting to lose benefits. That can be very detrimental in the long run.

My Boss Retracted my Job Offer

I was so excited to switch over to another department after being overworked, underpaid, and unappreciated. My new position had the same benefits, but with better pay, great hours, and there was also a balance in the workload. I gave my two weeks notice to my supervisor and did all the prep work for my fellow coworkers. On my last day, I got a call from my future supervisor, that the offer has been retracted due to my current supervisor explaining I am not qualified for the position, but would gladly take me back to remain working in my current position. I found out my supervisor is known to sabotage people leaving the department. So I took it to HR, with documents and anything I could use as proof against her accusations. Though I did not get the job offer back, I did get another interview and was able to move to another position.

Its really sad when you have people in leadership positions acting as such. I have held leading positions and i never do such actions against any of my workers..i acknowledge the goodness and productivity they have contributed to the firm. I would discuss with them their strength and weakness etc. We all work for an organisation at the end of the day its teamwork..a good leader would have a good team to support him or her. I am Glad that you have another offer!! Dont allow losers to pull you down..keep striving SKY is the limit!!!

The biggest mistake I made as a #janotor at #diversifiedmaintenancellc ...

quitting my job because of one day was not a good day for me, I enjoyed that job to the fullest and would love to work with the same or a similar company.

Two weeks notice

Two weeks notice is the norm, especially if do not wont burn a bridge. I seen it more often the employer will cut you loose after a week of your notice or maybe even the same day as you gave your notice. You need to do what's best for you and family. Bottom-line.
