I could not think of a better title than this. Ty Clint. Let me start by saying while I write this blog no names will be mentioned. This is a simple blog expressing my feelings. After all it is my blog. Here is my story and it goes like this.
After many years being a homemaker and an author on the side ( I will write a best seller) I decided to go back to work. Little did I know what I was getting into. I applied for a few jobs and went on several interviews. I unfortunately picked the WRONG one. I will not say where it was or who I worked for, but I will say this: I would not wish it on my worst enemy. This place was horrible and most of the people were too. I worked in the food service industry, and it was something I had very little experience. The people were their own little click and as days went on the y began to weed me out like a gang of prisoners. Of course, every job has a pet that the boss talks to about everyone and vice versa. There was also the fact I was tossed aside and dismissed rudely and went I asked questions I was a bother. I felt I was thrown to the wolves and no real training in my opinion. “To just figure it out is not training to me. I am sure I am not the first person to mention this or to go through this. The environment was hostile, and it just got worse and worse. I will give you an example. One day one of the workers pushed into my tray and nearly knocked me over. Then they were the constant quizzing what do you do next in a dismissive tone and made to feel demeaned. There was also the ignoring factor or you’re bothering me tone. After a while you begin to feel broken. This is no way to work or live. Needless to say, this was not a good opportunity. Finally, the day came when they said please resign and I did with pleasure. When I walked out the door, I felt a big boulder lift off my shoulders and I felt the pain slowly disappear and the fear and the frustration was gone. If I can offer any advice to anyone before you take a job or even apply ask yourself does this sound like I would be a good fit? Do you have any reservations about it? Do you have any experience? Please be careful who you work for. Do not let this happen to you. I felt every time I pulled into this place that I had a gun to my head a bomb strapped to my body. I know it sounds like an exaggeration it is not. I was in a very hostile environment. Now onto the next life lesson.
