I've never been told those words in my entire life. I've never been 'let go' from a job. Although the reason cited was...*it is not a good fit*.
Not a good fit because the 2 women I worked with have a history of being such ... that 3 other women have left the very same position? 2 other women have left during their probation time citing...personal differences.
I was rather surprised, rather shocked.
But I shouldn't have been.
I should have seen it coming. When my two co-workers hid the portable telephone from me, wouldn't let me get faxes off the fax machine, wouldn't let me do the job I was hired to do...
In the 'letting go' talk I was told that I wasn't performing my job. I waited until Mr. Administrator had his say, then flipped my Badge on his desk.
And I told him that he needed to consider the sources of his information. He needed to consider that my co-workers did NOT allow me to do my job. And they needed to consider a good training program.
He also needed to consider the record of what happens in that department and that other girls are actually afraid of the two I worked with.
And I smiled sadly at him and said, 'honesty is not a valued thing here, it comes back and bites you. You have a viper pit in that department, and you need to fix it.'
I was hurt deeply, and actually more embarrassed and humiliated by being escorted out of the building as if I was a criminal. --- I know it is standard practice, but it has never happened to me.
