Some of you may have seen my post about troubles at my new job.
Well, I'm finally biting the bullet and quitting. The final straw came today.
I woke up with a tight, wheezy, nasty cough. My throat hurt. I couldn't breathe. So I called out at 1pm before I was scheduled to come in at 3. My manager lost it. She told me that I'd better not be faking and hung up on me. Kind of immature there. :\
Well, my doctor diagnosed me with the beginnings of bronchitis. He thought I'd be better by Sat, but didn't want me to push it since I work with food. So he wrote me out for 4 days. Because of what happened earlier, we all felt like she was gonna fire me when I got in again.
I see your threat of termination, and raise you a resignation.
I never *NEEDED* the income. I have no expenses because I'm living at home while I wait for the spring semester to start college(I am 18). But I want to start saving for a horse, etc. So my paycheck is going into the savings account.
This wasn't the REASON I am quitting, but it sure as crap didn't help. They were bullying me into doing whatever days they wanted me to. I got no breaks. I was trained COMPLETELY differently than everyone else. And the work environment was hostile and it was hard to communicate with management.
There is a local kennel that is hiring weekend part-time. I can deal with THAT kind of ****. ;) Plus my father worked with the manager of Petco, so they promised they'd pull my application as soon as something turned up!
