I just read a story about a flight attendant who quit his job after 20 years with JetBlue. He asked a man to sit down during landing and the guy told him to “F-off.” I guess that was the straw that broke the camel’s back, because he went to the intercom, cussed out the passenger, and quit. He ripped off his tie, took a beer, and hit the emergency exit button - and slid down the emergency slide!
I’m not sure it was wise, but what a way to go!
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.
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.
I was forced to quit because I was the only American alert at the job . I used to love my job but the last year only Spanish speakers were getting hired and they were all related I ultimately got bullied and forced to quit
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 On my last day, I got a call from my future supervisor, that the offer has been retracted due to my current supervisor explaining I am not qualified for the position, but would gladly take me back to remain working in my current position.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.
I resigned from my job with 3 sick and 1 personal holiday unused. That’s a total of 32 hours I was expecting to collect on my last paycheck according to my original manager but when I brought it up to HR they told me that has never been a separation of employment policy. I was counting on that money to pay bills until I could find another job. I would have taken that time off if I knew I wasn't going to get paid for it. Is there anything I can do to get paid for time that I’ve already earned?
Before being hired by the former manager, i informed them that i had some health issues. I was told they understood..however when i couldnt come in amd called hours ahead of when i was scheduled..i was still told to come in plus a doctors note and then before i had quit...the manager tried to guilt me into staying...telling me he had a cancer patient who could be there working. About how i should be..even though he was aware of my medical issues which caused me physical complications a times.
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.
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.
