CRAP

5 replies 4 views Edited Mar 30, 2007
normaly i wouldn't post this but i need to get out some anger.
 
i graduated from UCONN in may with a B.S. in Molecular and Cell Biology, i'm planning on going back for a terminal degree but i wanted to get some real world lab experiance first, so i decided to move to california cause i have some friends out there. but before i could do that i needed to save some money. so i moved back home with my parrents (it sux BTW) and got a temp job at a lab. this was in august. by december i had paid off all my debts and was ready to really start saving to move. now it's important to note that my temp job was supposed to last 3 months, but since the work i was doing for them never really ends, they've kept renewing me 3 months at a time. so it's now march and my 3rd renewal is comming to an end, and my boss says that she really wants to keep me on for as long as i can stay, i tell her i can stay till june (cause by then i'll have enough saved to move) and that i'd really like to stay for as long as i can. well today is march 30th and i just got a call from one of the people in HR... They don't have enough money in the budget for me to stay on through june so today march 30th is MY LAST DAY! they didn't tell my boss till yesterday and me untill today! sorry for yelling but WHAT THE **bleep**? since when is it ok to not give notice? i mean if i were going to quit i'd tell them 2 weeks ahead of time, i can't get the common courtesy of giving me notice? now i have to try to find a job that's willing to hire me for the next 3 months. needless to say i'm PISSED!

And whoever keeps the books at your lab messed up. They should of been able to tell how much money they were going to have this time of the year quite awhile ago.

now that you have been scorned by the realities of working in the real world, i sugest not telling your next employer that you will only owrk for 3 months and when june comes around give your 2 weeks notice.  nothing personal it's business. welcome to the real world.
