- Wedding: September 2012
What a fabulous Monday! First I spilled nail polish all over myself while painting my nails in my car in the parking lot before heading into work.
Then, towards the end of the day they pull my whole dept. into a ‘meeting’. Here they proceed to tell us that they will be eliminating the entire Acct. dept. by starting to work with a new program that will essentially do all of our work automated.
For now, they will be putting us into the customer service position, which basically means we’ll be answering phone calls about insurance. This is the position I started with at the company and I literally hated every second of my life when I was doing that. I would come home crying all the time because people were so mean.
They’ve also told us that they basically are putting us into that position thru the end of the year, then they can’t guarantee they will be keeping us. Basically, in my company the last quarter of the year is crazy busy and we all know they’re just keeping us on in the CS position to get them thru the busy time and then we’ll be gone. Normally we hire temps to help out at this time on the phones, so we’ll be keeping them from having to do that.
I’m so mad. Mad more than upset. There has been a lot of weird stuff going on lately, a lot of meetings and several people have straight up asked my boss if we should be worried. We’ve been told over and over again there was nothing to worry about. She even had a meeting for us a few weeks ago to specifically address our concerns and assure us not to worry.
I feel really lied to and honestly just have no respect for this company. I know it’s all about the dollar but to repeatedly tell us we have job security while actually working on securing this system that essentially eliminates our jobs is just horrible.
At this point, I don’t know what to do. I’ve never been in this situation. I’ve never lost a job, and honestly never even had a fear of losing my job.
If the wedding wasn’t in 12 weeks I wouldn’t be freaking out so bad. I need to start looking, but who is going to hire someone who needs 2 weeks off a month or two after being hired? Our honeymoon is already paid for and is non-refundable so we’re going. No way we’re missing that.
I’m just so mad. I was so looking forward to this wedding and our honeymoon. The last two years have been nothing but stress. My dad got cancer last Feb, fought it all last year, and passed away in Nov. This wedding has been nothing but stressful. I was looking forward to finally getting to breathe and be stress-free after the wedding and now this.
Part of me feels like we should just cancel the wedding and do something small at this point, even though we’d be out a ton of money we’ve already paid. It’s so hard for me to justify basically draining my bank acct. when I don’t know if I’ll have a job much longer after the wedding. We’re basically paying for everything ourselves. But Save the Dates were already sent so I don’t feel like I could cut the list down now. And honestly, I’m 33, I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time and I want my wedding. : (
Not to mention now I’m going to be back in a position that literally makes me hate my life.
This isn’t really here for advice, although I’ll take it. It’s mainly just a rant! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
