Good for you Goldstar! (I’m not sure if there’s any truth in that last post or not, but there should be!) I’m so sick of people starting a job and then quitting after a day, a week, a month. It costs a helluva lot of money to train people, including actual time spent training, costly mistakes, trained employees having to re-do work…the list goes on.
These are seasonal positions – you work hard, you get paid, you go have fun after work. It’s five months – it would be great if just for once, someone would understand how much they are inconveniencing employers with this start-quit-start-quit-start-quit nonsense. If you don’t want the job, don’t accept it! This current trend goes way beyond the likelihood of the employers being at fault – I keep coming across people who’ve had 4 or 5 jobs in Fernie in the last 3 months, and employers who are tearing their hair out as a result, and are ready to pack up and quit themselves.
What people seem to expect from a part time housekeeping position is getting quite ridiculous. What exactly is it that you didn’t understand when you started, that caused you to quit before you’d worked there for a month?
GRRR. That’s my rant for the day. I do feel better now.
