PostSubject: Looking for another job   Wed Oct 23, 2013 10:42 pm

Bottom line...I'm fed up with my employer. My 2 bosses are great. It's the idiots from corporate who have come down to fix what isn't broken. In addition to that, they have raised my production quota 2 times in a month, PLUS added extra stuff that I'm expected to do on top of that. My supervisors have always had praise for my work, and now I'm getting called on the carpet being accused of slacking off and intentionally slowing down so I won't finish too soon and have to help someone else.

That was the last straw. The corporate part of this company has crapped on me for the last 5 years. And I'm through with it. I may have my foot in the door somewhere else. PLEASE pray that God will keep this door open. I thought I had another job lined up in May, but it fell through. I don't know if I will have the patience to continue dealing with this nonsense much longer.

That's corporate America for you! Sounds a lot like my company. I have worked for a certain wireless company which begins with the letter V for 15 years next month. It used to be a great company to work for but has since become a sweat shop. Not only are we expected to give our customers exceptional customer service (which btw I have no problem with) but we are now expected to make a sales pitch on every call, not put the customer on hold for longer than 45 seconds, they micro manage every minute you are off the phone for breaks and lunches. People are being written up for stupid stuff like going over their 15 minute break by a minute. It's just become rediculous. Just like your situation my boss is very cool. Infant he's probably the best boss I've ever had, but it's the corporate big boys that are imposing stuff like this. I've seen people get walked out over what would have seemed minor 1 or 2 years ago. So I totally get what you must be going thru. Weigh out the Benny's you have on your current job vs what you might be offered on the prospective. Also remember since you have a job you are very much in the drivers seat. You are interviewing that other company as much as they are interviewing you. I'm praying for you and your job situation. Praying that God will open the right door for you and give you direction. Keep us posted!

I quit my job this morning. Short and sweet, over the last 12 months, my company cut our workforce capacity by several people, but they still expect the rest of us to do our job and theirs. Oh, and they raised my production quota TWICE in 2 months. Basically, I was being told to make bricks without straw. No more.

Here's praying you find a new one that you enjoy where you can bring glory to Jesus. It's his problem anyway!

Door is opened. I got a job as a stocker at Dollar General. And to be honest, this is like a breath of fresh air. And I won't be getting up at 2 or 3 in the morning like my last job where start times were between 3-4 A.M.
