I started this job and it is complete chaos. I really want to quit but I have nothing else lined up.
First, the so called training was inadequate. Next I didn’t have access to things I needed to get my job done, then they hired an assistant for me, one who has no skills in the profession or even computer skills, so not only am I learning my role but I’m also training someone else on HR and computer things such as Adobe, Excel etc. don’t get me wrong, I really like my assistant, however, I need someone who has some bit of knowledge.
Its grand central station, even with a sign that reads do not disturb meeting in progress hanging on my door people will knock at the door until I answer. There is one deadline after another. Its crazy. This place, though they’ve been around for years, is like a startup on steroids and I’ve had my share of startups. Noting compares to this.
Friday I left early because my blood pressure was sky high and I had a nose bleed. SMH
Needless to say that after 30-days of working there I am back on high blood pressure medication.
My predecessor lasted four months and his/her predecessor lasted a year.
I am going to take a look at my finances. First I have to consolidate my student loans, that way I can reap the benefits of the full 20k forgiveness.
Next im going to have to find out the cost if health insurance. Now that I am back on meds I can’t go without.
I hate this. Weird thing is something told me not to take this job.
