So I told you guys about how I applied for a job… Well After two interviews (one being this morning) I was offered the job. I was already driving home from said interview when they called me back to offer the job. I was pretty excited, but kind of tired and bummed I wouldn’t have time for breakfast.
I get back in time for them to go ahead and count today as a 9-3. Pretty awesome. But, here’s where things go downhill…
They are older and very set in thier ways. I thought it was something that wouldn’t bother me, but it did. I was only there for two hours before I wanted to run out screaming. I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt, so I talked myself into staying untill my shift was over.
The old “big boss” didn’t know or want to know my name, I was “girl” all day.
They told me I wasn’t allowed to eat at my desk for my 15 min break, but that I had to go outside to my car or in the back at the almost outside service desk.
They told me cell phones are NOT permitted. Not even on breaks, if they see it they write me up.
They have this long list of not so organized notes on who gets which phone calls and after a month if I transfer the customer to the wrong person, I get written up ( there are only 5 people in the office).
They cussed ALOT and yelled at each other through the walls and talked really bad about customers after they hung up.
OH and last I was there for 5 hours and they recieved 7 phone calls…. LIKE WHY DO YOU NEED ANYONE TO ANSWER THE PHONES…
These things don’t seem that big of a deal, but so much more happened I can’t even spend that long typing them. They literally throw people away. They told me I was receptionist #5 this year. The last girl was fired for using the copier without ask permission… and I was like oh so we should ask before we use the machine? and my “boss” was like yeah, even if someone tells you to make copies, you better ask or you’ll be written up.
I just left at 3 and didn’t say anything. I know I should call in the AM before my shift, but I just can’t bring myself to face them. I think I’ll just write them an email… yes I know very passive aggressive.
I really needed to get this off my chest. I feel like an A**HOLE for doing this,but I really don’t fit in there. I’m just happy I have my other job to fall on, I appreciate it much more.
TL;DR My first day at my new job sucked butt and I’m not going in for day two because it was THAT bad.
Thanks for reading my novel! I just got home from my other job, so if my post is a little meh just excuse me 🙂
