Never take a job that you are hesitant about - August 3, 2007, 09:43 AM

Just like the title says. I took a new job 2 months ago on some blind faith. I knew a little bit about the job, and had no idea the type of people i'd be working with.

All the way up from giving notice at my old job to the last day i didnt feel quite right. But i just shruged it off as nerves associated with a new job. Even though ive never felt that way chaning jobs before.. I tend to be a worrier about a lot of things, so its hard for me to really know sometimes..

Ok after two months at the new job, i know that it was NOT my nerves. The human intuition is a STRANGE thing.

I will say the type of work and the experience I could have gained was awsome. But alas the PEOPLE were NOT. I was warned that it was a unique environment, and it would take a while to get used to the place.. Little did I know did that mean getting used to the people there.

Holy high school clic batman! I dont even remember it being that bad in ACTUAL highschool. I had no place to sit for 4 weeks, and when they finally got a desk for me, it was a piece of shit counter in a corner for everyont to see....

So i would be sitting at one of unoccupied desks for the day and someone would go around to each cubicle and say they were going out to lunch...when they would get to my desk, they would keep on going. I mean seriously. like 8 cubicles the person would ask all except mine.

when a new guy starts at my place, im always sure to include them as much as possible..
Man the attitudes and the rudeness was unbelievable. They would call the fat people fat to their face.. The gay jokes would cross even the line for me.. Cock sucker this, faggot that... I mean, ive been around military for a long time, so foul mouth is no surprise, but this place raised the bar in unprofessionalism..


You see your coworkers MORE than you see your family. If i couldnt get along with folks, it just made it worse for me at home b/c i would be in a shitty mood.

Seriously, no matter how much $$ or work experience, if you dont like the people, it will NEVER work.

Just my vent.

I got a new job that stats on the 13th for even more $$, so that is the only positive out of this situation..

If you feel any hesitation, i would take it seriously. no one likes job hoppers, including myself, but I had to go.

Alex

I just hope other folks learn from my mistake...

I feel your pain. I'm in my 4th month at the new job. I'll probably cross the 1000 hour line next week easily. Last month I pulled 300 hours. I don't mind working long hours within reason to finish a project. But the stress, hours, and just immense amount of unknown stuff here that you have to go figure out by yourself (Like with the application they wrote) means you will always be spending your own free time trying to catch up.

I've already spoken to a couple of headhunters & have resumes in at Lockheed & Northrup.

Ends up that the people I interviewed with were not really the ones I would work alongside. Oh well. Maybe McDonald's is hiring. DOH!


I want my baby back, baby back, baby back....Chileeeeee's bay back...

Yep still on post hfam..

I had always heard the IT job market was in a lull. Boy is that NOT the truth. I had to change my resume on monster to reflect asking a rediculous salary to filter down all the calls and emails..

If you are at a job that is killing you, there are plenty out there.

Not to say you cant be wary of the grass being green on the other side mentality.. Just keep this in mind when you are ready to move on..or up.
