Here is the story, and seriously, it’s Horrible!
Upon coming to the city I live in now. I got a job as a customer care representative at an IT business. Seriously, I can’t stop shaking my head.. total shock. Quickly settled in at work, I started studying about computers and enterprise systems, and to make long story short :
After ten months of studying I finally reached my goal and started qualifying (IT Engineer) and strived (still am) to get my certificates made for, and became a “real” employee at this business not recruited with a shitty salary and benefits nomore, so grateful today, because of things that has happened, son moving over, big big wedding, court and lawyer’s fees payments and whatever, and this:
After a big announcement by our manager earlier this afternoon, we found out that the customer care where I worked at previously and the planning department are getting FIRED! Yes, FIRED – 100+ just fired, like that! They will have 5-6 months left of their jobs with some getting offered even worse positions at another department, and seriously they will not probably hire most of these guys back.. they are moving all these positions to another location (out of country). what was so scary for me, is that if I would have chosen to stay and not study further and being lazy, I would not been able to finance my son for zip nada, plan a wedding with the man I love, pay the lawyers fees, travels back and forth to home and FI’s parents… support my mom after dad’s passing away. OMG. I am so grateful I made the right decision. I would have been forced to pack my stuff and move back home, pennyless basically….with a tons of debts. Now, everything is almost paid off..
The sad thing is, that all of this was because were lazy at work, and alot of people chose not to come to work at all some days.. and all of this on the expense of customer satisfaction, many of them are really good people to work with of cours.. .. I have a two close friends in that department, and right now I have offered myself to help them to start working in my department to get covered. One of them are getting married next july and they want to get into the technical side of things too.. Seriously.. I must have done somehting right for being in a good place right now.. but I feel so sorry for those that were actually doing their job like they should … like my friend (she is my Bridesmaid or Best Man too), she was one of the best! … in total shock… I’ve known some of the people for a couple of years…. gsus..
Sorry for the long post Bees, still in shock!!
