We're you more happy or sad when you left your last job?
I was sad because it wasn't by choice and I was rather blindsided. I didn't even get to say goodbye to anyone. And I'm sure no one was told the truth about why I left, so they think I abandoned them.
Happy. They were swinging the layoff axe around wildly and you never knew who would be next. Talk about a horrible work environment!
Very happy. I wasn't making very much and it was a dead end job. I'm making 35% more now and have advanced in my career.
A little sad initially because I really liked doing the job, and didn't yet know how great retirement would be. After a few weeks, more happy.
So happy. I was leaving restaurant management. There were irregular hours, no consistent schedules, 50 hour (scheduled) workweeks.
I changed for a job with regular hours, a consistent schedule, a 40 hour workweek, and a 10% raise.
I didn't know what to do with all of my free time at first.
I've never had a job
Happy because I was moving to Arizona and changing to an industry with better upward mobility.
Very sad. A supervisor screwed up and didn't schedule me correctly. I got use to the fact that she would say one thing and do another so I was careful to keep track of my schedule and worked hours. She had offered me hours and wouldn't schedule me. I was offered a new client every Thursday and every other weekend. She didn't start me on Thursdays until the next month, not the next two week schedule like we had discussed. She scheduled me Saturday's but not Sundays every other weekend. I called her and talked to her about it in person and she never fixed my schedule. She was bringing new staff to train all the time to this client and she was getting fed up! Then she said I was fired for a no call no show for a shift I was never scheduled for. I talked to the owner and she was fired and I was offered my job back but I walked in to another agency and was hired on the spot.
