Love, love, love!

Every year Valentine's Day reminds me of two things.

1- Those really sappy Hallmark cards and 2- those conversation candies with the messages stamped on top. Remember those? I think they are secretly made out of chalk : )

Of course, the purpose of the holiday is a reminder to celebrate love and it got me thinking...

Have you ever had a past job or a boss that you REALLY loved?

For me, it was when I was a teacher in a small elementary school in Connecticut. The principal not only loved her job, but she shared that joy with every child, parent, and teacher she met. I once watched her dress up as a Polar bear (the school mascot) on the first day of school to welcome the students back. She stood outside in a furry bear suit in the 98-degree heat that day waving, and she never once complained.

I loved that job because I had a fantastic leader who everyone wanted to surround themselves with.

Now it's your turn to share. : )

What was a job or boss you loved and why?

What made them special?

When I think back to a job I really loved I think back to my job at #Randstad I was just starting out in my career, they provided world class training and allowed me to grow with the company. It took a lot of hard work and a great team that I worked with but we achieved so much and had SO much fun doing it!

Then you should start there. If you know your stuff, do some homework on the company now and sell you knowledge. You have to start somewhere. When I get a no on interviews. I call back and ask what was my weak link so I can work on it for the next interview.

Yes there was this one job I had that was PERFECT. The boss was perfect, the job I was doing was perfect and my peers was ok to deal with. I had worked there for a couple years but was let go due to retaliation I feel. But overall the job was a good, it was just a few people that was not too fond of me.

I was let go from a job I was at for 16 years. Use to love it. Hence I was there a long time. It went downhill and I was being bullied by some nurses. Switched to nights to get away from it...it followed me to nights. Some nurses form little cliques. If one has beef the whole group does. Needless to say they got away with lying on an even that didnt happen I was then fired. Was shocked it passed.

I absolutely LOVED my job at Quest Diagnostics under the supervision of my boss Greg!! He was a go getter, treated everyone with respect and honor even those who did not show him the same!! He made going to work enjoyable!! He was fair and equal to everyone!! He would bring in snacks on Fridays as a thank you!! He even listened when some would say they would like something healthier than candy or chips!! So he would bring in both!! He would walk around during our shift to pass out the snacks at least twice once at the beginning and then about the middle then let us know where all the leftovers were at his desk and we could help ourselves! He still reprimand when needed but did it in a way that was respectful of the individual. The ones that had problems with him were the ones that weren't doing there job! To this day 13 years later we stay in touch. He was let go about 2 years before I was let go due to them downsizing. So sad to see him go!
