The Job From Hell?

You may remember how a couple of weeks ago I said that if at the end of the 4.5 weeks, I didnt stay in the job, I’d be screaming? Fine, its only taken me 2 weeks to reach that point, I’m screaming! In more senses than one, in fact.

Thats right, I managed to find the one call centre where good customer service isnt a desired item, but in fact, just the opposite, they hate it. I’ll be honest, I’d read some horrible reports about this company, and their levels of service, but assumed that having us ‘extra bodies’ would enable us to help out with that matter. Seemingly, that wasnt in their plans!

It quickly became clear that all they really wanted us for, was cannon fodder, to act as a buffer between them, and their angry customers. When we started trying to help clients, we were quickly told that wasnt what we were employed for. We were just to take messages, so they stopped us putting information on file. Then when that failed, they took the computer system away from us. We had no way of telling if we were putting down the right details, or anything. Anyway, between Wednesday, when this ridiculous situation kicked in, and Thursday evening, 2 had had enough, and left. Thursday evening, I was thinking I’d stick it out to the weekend, and then possibly do the same. My body decided otherwise! Basically the stress issues sent my stomach into overload, and I spent a lot of Thursday night in the bathroom. Friday morning, I still got up, but exhaustion, and the inability to do much at all, had me retreating to bed, for 3 hours much needed sleep.

Friday, I inquired about doing a clinical trial starting next Monday, but irony, because of stress related issues, they dont want me, as that might factor into my results. All the same, practically, mainly to keep my sanity, I’ve tendered my notice, and just asked them to pay me for the hours I’ve worked. Yes, job hunting again, started today.

And how bad is it, I’ve been looking at betting shop jobs (assistant manager) as an option (thought not applied yet), and I really dont want to do that. But its money. Then again, I thought the same about this job, and look where it got me! Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket Wednesday, as its a £22.6 million rollover. Though why anything should go right for me at present? Still, should I win, I could afford a nice little place in Hollywood, so…

OK, the video. You could say, I guess, this was my journey to work? Though I went via a hellish train company, but…
