For those of you who do not do the facebook thing, I got a job with the facility that I so wanted to be a part of. It is not the job that I ultimately hope to have, but I am working where I want to work, and I will be watching closely for the hiring freeze to end, because there is an empty spot that has not been filled in the OT department.
I very carefully counted the days up, to make sure that I gave TSC a full two week notice. On my way home from my job interview, I stopped in to hand in my notice.
It is kind of sad really. This has been a pleasant job, for the most part, but despite the complaints (my complaint to corporate was followed up by complaints from a number of co-workers), nothing was done. No employee was contacted. Everyone kind of assumes at this point, that because our store is profitable, no action will be taken. It is very disappointing, and morale is low.
The employee bulletin board has a flier about our company hotline, about our ethics, about respect, about our 'team' mentality, about how we listen to each other, help each other, etc. etc. Now I know that it is just words. So does everyone else. There is a methodical plodding through the job, by everyone really.
You know, I knew that I would be leaving my job, but I never expected to be so relieved. Sad, isn't it?
