People Suck!

Sorry this is a rant thread but I need to let off some steam!

I've been working my arse off for the last five months for this company for nothing, I've been interning there hoping it would result in a job, but instead they've screwed me over. I keep getting told I'm doing a great job, if they could pay me they would, they'll keep me in mind if something comes up. The only reason I satyed so long was because I knew one of the girls there was going to leave as she had another job in the pipeline, turns out today after she announced her departure they already had someone lined up as they were going to sack her anyway.

I'm like what the hell? I've spent the last few months learning this girl's job inside out in the hope I'd at least be considered for it. I didn't expect them to just hand it to me, but I thought there would at least be an interview process, or that I'd be at least considered for it, but apparently I've been eating sphincter for nothing! And the new person has no experiance in this kind of job, but instead is the partner of one of the major clients.

They think I'm here for at least another month, like hell I am, I'm gonna email the boss to say I'm leaving tonight and then I'm getting wrecked, I don't care anymore. I'm gonna drink myself silly until wednesday next week.

And to think I was spending almost 300 a month on transport to work for these fuckers, I'm such a mug. Maybe I wasn't good enough for the job, but they could have at least told me, in appraisals I always asked for criticisms and they'd always say there were none, and I would be perfect for the company if they could afford to employ another member to staff.

Rant over, please feel free to add your own rant about your sucky life, we can all mope around together!

Re: People Suck!

Oh, shit happens, really. Did you ask them why they didn't consider you, btw? Maybe you'd like to ask the boss why you were passed over for a promotion(?) and give him/her a chance to tell you his/her reasons, if s/he keeps bs-ing then you really should quit.

I had a rather unpleasant working experience before, not as bad as yours, tho. I worked overtime almost every day and even it's a 5-day week work, I got calls from different clients on weekends, but it was okay, they didn't bother me much. Sometimes I had to work until 4,5 o'clock in the morning and I didn't complain (to my boss) because I knew I was gaining experience and I was lucky to have a job anyway. BUT, the vice president was such a bitch. She was new to the company just like me, and one day I sent her an email for approval (everytime I sent something to my clients I needed her double-checking for me) and she NEVER replied to it even though I reminded her like 3 times. And the boss realized I didn't send the stuff to my clients on time and other memebers of staff told him it was the VP's fault (no one liked her), and the VP thought it was my fault and told others I had to be fired. I quit at the end because she tried so hard to get rid of me and treated me unfairly. Guess what, she was fired a month after I quit. Karma is a bitch and I am sure that bitch will come to your boss soon if s/he does treat you so unfairly.

Re: People Suck!

Now I've had some time to mull it over I'm still pissed at them but I'll get over it, I'm not as mad as I was earlier (I'm still getting wasted, I've got 5 minutes until I'm outta here for good).

I told them I have to go, I can't do anymore time there, I've already wasted too much of my life and too much money, I'm not going to waste any more time. To hell with them.

You can always work there part-time. for 2 hours, looks good on the resume if you stayed in a "job" for a long time.

by then you will have known the company inside out,...
then you get to do your revenge and burn the company to ashes.

Re: People Suck!

Don't quit dramatically. Burning bridges always backfires and you won't be able to use this experience as a reference. Part of being professional is not doing what you're planning to do. It'll feel great tonight, but then you're gonna spend the next seven years having to bullshit your way around why you have a 6 month gap in your resume.

Don't do it.

Bullshit. Go to work drunk and give them a piece of your mind. You can't go wrong!

Re: People Suck!

I know exactly how you feel. I work in a supermarket casually while I study at uni and my boss is a complete bitch. During the holidays she calls me up just about every second day and asks me to work extra hours and I say yes just about every time just because I went to get on her "good side" and then one freaking day I asked for a day off which I was rostered on for (I told her like a week in advance) and she got really nasty about it and said how I'm not allowed to take holidays during Christmas time. I felt like quitting but I'm still working there..yeah, I hate my stupid job.

Re: People Suck!

Maybe she had seniority and they were looking for someone with a little bit more experience? Don't sweat it, I'm pretty sure they thought about you and didn't hire you for a reason.

Maybe you could actually ask the reason they didn't hire you?

Disagree. Just tell them to shove it. Interns are slave labour, and screwing them over is part of how companies turn profit.

I might have done, I may have been seen to be totally unsuitable for the job, but could they have not told me? Could they not have explained to me why I wasn't being considered for the job? I feel they have been totally underhanded in giving someone else the job without even talking to me.

I'm torn between asking them or just leaving it. I haven't even been offically told about the job so I don't think its my place to even mention it.

That's exactly how it is, I've lost money working for them and it feels like I've been given nothing in return. I'm going to ask for my reference this week and I'm going, I've given them too much and I don't think they have any desire to give me a job so I've got to get on with my life and move on.

This is correct. Never burn bridges professionally. The people that you are pissed with one day may still be able to help you get a job elsewhere some other day. At the very least, don't let them be the reason that you don't.

Spoken like a person who thinks unemployment is awesome. Which it is. If you have a trust fund.

Only burn bridges in the work force if you've got the fuck you money to know you'll never need those people again
