I was hired for a temp job, ultimately the result was getting up at 5 am to stuff and address envelopes. I lasted all of a week. Why?
Because the forms issued to Custys are different depending on where they come from and the spot that says where they are going to is all fucking over the place in different (and sometimes illegible) fonts or hand writing. I was constantly (and seriously it was several times per handful) talking to a supervisor to get clarification. Sometimes the Going To information was in the Coming From box, and vise versa.
These mix ups were dubbed "errors" that were blamed on me. So, rather than pull me aside and ask me to watch out for this, they called the temp agency that had placed me. So both the agency and the place where they put me have dropped me like a hot potato.
This HAD been the company I was eager and primed to work for because it was the company I really really liked. This middle finger up the backside means I most likely won't ever get a spot in that company ever again. Fuck it all RHU...
On the plus side, Wonderful Lady knew I was job hunting, and I alerted her to my temp job. My volunteering was put on hold for my work. Well, after this miserable week, she's welcoming me back with open arms since I am able to volunteer with her again.
When I told her what happened, she was outraged: ranting that it was crazy to expect someone who never made mistakes.
"I still make mistakes! And will continue to! Well, sometimes you don't know what you have until its gone! They 'let go' one heck of a person! It's their huge loss!" She said. "You are always welcome back. I just understood how important getting a job was for you. There's a better job out there for you! Everyone has missed you too by the way! Thought you'd like to know that! You are so very much appreciated and not just by me!"
Words to melt the ice from any Retail Slave's heart, let me tell you. You never know how long a work week is until a person like this pushed into the distance, even temporarily. If only Thrognar could wave his hands and make my volunteering a real, fulltime job!
May all your customers be nice...
