Company has been in business for 50 years / installation of raised flooring for server rooms/offices/ apparently wildly profitable since there aren’t many people that do it. 10 people in the home office. Family run up until now, owner now passing the torch to us 40 and 30 somethings.


SO EXCITED. This is where I’m going to die at my desk in the year 2046.

Wait.  Did you just get a new job or did I miss something?  Is this one WFH or no?  If not, how long is your ride?  Did you put your avatar picture on your resume?  :D

I started a WFH position on 8/26. It’s truly awful. The job itself is fine but the processes are non existent. I have about 6 people I’m supposed to keep up to date, and everything is done in email chains.

Oh, there’s also a Master spreadsheet... where we keep all the new clients/sales info/start dates. We are expected to update it daily. I do. Then 2 different people call me, and read to me what I typed into the spreadsheet.

I don’t know if it means anything to you all but when your work is tied to sales and everything is manual , group email is gd main form of communication, instead of a CRM, it’s completely maddening.

And while they admit it’s a mess, they are no where close to even dealing with any of it.

So, I’m out. Shame, because if they had hired me to fix it all, we’d be 25% finished by now. But, they don’t seem to acknowledge my suggestions/ideas for even the mildest improvements.

It’s just an inefficiency thing. If I’m working 50 hours on real work, I’m fine. If I’m working 50 hours because the process is delayed and stupid, I become very angry.



Philly? Congratulations.

No, about 20 mins away in southern NJ. Philly is going to need to wait until my next stage of life.

When I quit I’m going to have to refrain from being a complete and total asshole and saying “because I’m pretty sure that none of know how to begin to fix this. And even if you did, you’re at least a year away from noticeably improving anything .”


I scheduled my two earned PTO days for next week. When I get back, I’ll give them 2 weeks notice.

Union?


Just to be clear, I’M not in the union. Just paying the union workers that we hire for our jobs.

I look forward to dealing with the old birds at the union halls, though! Should be fun!
