This Week’s Topic: Losing My Job
I made an important decision. While I don’t regret the choice itself, I do regret not thinking it fully through first. I’m in for some challenging times. It will get better. I know it. I just need to make it through the next month or so.
In a few weeks, I’ll be going to Savannah for my yearly convention. I’m very excited about it. Due to this change, I’m also a little nervous. I’ll make it work somehow. I always do. It’s not about thinking positive in this case. I’m just really determined when I set my mind to something.
My biggest issue with this job was that it was back-to-back calls for the entire shift. I mentioned in the hiring process that one thing I didn’t want was to be back to back the entire shift. I was assured confidently that that wouldn’t be a thing. I was also assured that there would be no problem with me going to Savannah in July. I was made to feel like this was a business that treated you like family and always made sure you were okay from day one of training. Most of these were a lie. I can’t prove they weren’t going to honor Savannah, but there was a conversation I had that made me feel like it wouldn’t be taken care of.
I don’t have anything against the company, and I’m not going to disclose the company name on here. It just wasn’t a good fit for me. Do I wish I had gotten another job before I bailed? Yes. Absolutely. Do I regret my decision to leave the company? No. Not at all. If they were willing to work with me, it would be different. They weren’t. It’s okay. I’ll be okay.
I’ve already been looking for another job. I’m looking for something that’s in the data entry or chat/email support. I don’t mind working a call center job. I just don’t want it to be a back-to-back all-shift long kind. Busy times happen. That’s a given. It just wears on you doing it 8 hours a day for 5 days a week.
This post isn’t meant to make anybody feel sorry for me. I just want to try to start being a little more personal on my blogs. I felt like my blogs were starting to turn a bit robotic. I’m hoping the change I made will change that. We shall see. Wish me the best with finding a new job!!!!
