I've got my exit interview this afternoon.
Do I
a) subject the HR lassie to 7 years worth of gripes
b) just say the bare minimum in the knowledge that what I say won't make the slightest bit of difference anyway?

Funko
08-03-2006, 10:35:19
a) Although it probably won't make any difference at least there is the possibility it might...

Get it off your chest. When I quit my first job I wrote a "war and peace" sized resignation letter. Felt good.

Bring all your spite and bitterness in a positive way!!

mr_G
08-03-2006, 12:01:01
remember my advice!!!!!

Provost Harrison
08-03-2006, 12:04:38
I am now jobhunting again because my employers have been arseholes - I've covered their arse and they've shafted me. So I am really, really relishing the prospect of the exit interview :D

Funko
08-03-2006, 12:10:24
You put yourself on the line covering for someone else. How is that a good idea?

*End Is Forever*
08-03-2006, 12:27:16
What happened, Rich?

Provost Harrison
08-03-2006, 12:31:37
I didn't cover someone else, I really helped out with departmental problems and bust a gut, only to get screwed on my annual review with no explanation and all opportunities for progression were extremely unlikely contrary to what they said a matter of weeks ago, where the sun shone out of my arse...

Funko
08-03-2006, 12:36:23
Ah that's ok then. but :(

Provost Harrison
08-03-2006, 12:37:58
Yeah, indeed...

Tizzy
08-03-2006, 15:44:49
I went for somewhere between the two.
I highlighted the most important problems but didn't rant about everything.

Funko
08-03-2006, 15:47:56
What did they say?

Tizzy
08-03-2006, 15:52:12
Not a lot.
She just took loads of notes and asked me to expand on a few things, now I have to decide if I want the bosses to see it!

Funko
08-03-2006, 15:52:43
:lol:

Venom
08-03-2006, 15:53:14
Machine gun the entire office. That'll give them something to remember.

mr_G
08-03-2006, 15:53:28
is that a problem?

Japher
08-03-2006, 15:56:18
don't burn bridges



blow them up

Tizzy
08-03-2006, 15:58:57
If one of the bosses in particular sees it there certainly would be bridge blowing.
I need to work out how much I care about that.

Lurker the Second
08-03-2006, 16:07:00
Caring requires too much effort.

Vincent
08-03-2006, 16:08:59
If they haven't asked you what's wrong and if they didn't care for your problems while you were working there - why tell them when you leave?

Funko
08-03-2006, 16:11:23
For fun

Japher
08-03-2006, 16:12:14
Don't say anything. Just have a T-Shirt made that says everything. A Top 10 Reasons I Am QUiting This Job

Venom
08-03-2006, 16:12:58
Also...Tizzy said lassie. :lol: Scooootish accent for the rest of the day it is!

ACK AYE!

mr_G
08-03-2006, 16:14:36
:lol:

Tizzy
08-03-2006, 16:25:34
Och, wheesht

Funko
08-03-2006, 16:37:28
Yeah, you guys laugh but try going there and not understanding anything anyone's saying. :cry:

mr_G
08-03-2006, 16:42:06

It's going to happen again laster this month in New York.

Darkstar
08-03-2006, 17:26:40
I think he'll understand "fuck".

Funko
08-03-2006, 17:29:35
...but won't accept it as an order.

Provost Harrison
08-03-2006, 23:05:41
Hmmm, interesting new job offer already...pay increase, more responsibility AND it's in Berkshire :lol:

DaShi

Burn those bridges!

Darkstar
09-03-2006, 03:52:50
I'd say never burn a professional bridge. Most professional markets are too small, meaning that you'll often have to work with people again. Burning that bridge can occasionally backfire.

Provost Harrison
09-03-2006, 10:52:10
More specifically, in Reading...hah!

Funko
09-03-2006, 10:53:13
But Tizzy already had to flee Greenwich!

:nervous:

Provost Harrison
09-03-2006, 10:54:29
Actually if there is one thing I would miss, it is actually this area and London in general. It's odd how I have developed a more profound attachment to South East London in under 2 years than I have to Hull in 26. Actually, it really isn't that odd at all :lol:

Tizzy
09-03-2006, 10:54:34
Damnit, I don't wanna move again :cry:

mr_G
09-03-2006, 10:55:32
i :love: bridges

Funko
09-03-2006, 10:56:31
Everyone ends up in Reading for a while sooner or later. - FACT!

mr_G
09-03-2006, 10:57:43
hehehehe i will haunt you till you are annoyed for life.

You should be flattered that you have a stalker :cute:

Hey, nothing is set in concrete yet, and I wonder whether the prospect of losing one of the departments best analysts will prompt my current employers into a counter-offer. I doubt it though, they're so bureaucratic and inflexible, they'll just say there's nothing they can do.

mr_G
09-03-2006, 11:10:43
so you have to go and they are losing their best analyst too.
well ying yang that is, the company stays in balance.

Funko
09-03-2006, 11:11:31

:lol:

I had a job offer in Reading not long ago too... Maybe all CG'ers have some force pulling them to it.... :eek:

Provost Harrison
09-03-2006, 11:51:47
Maybe some day in the not too far future - CGers will comprise a majority of Reading's population...

Gary
09-03-2006, 12:16:54
As soon as the rest have managed to flee the place.

Japher
09-03-2006, 13:34:29
Well, if Venom moves there...

*End Is Forever*
09-03-2006, 13:40:46
Be thankful, I have no intention of moving to Reading.

Why are they hanging little foo-foo dogs from the lightposts on that bridge? Is that a mrG bridge?

Japher
09-03-2006, 14:15:51
Are you kidding?

If it were a Mr. G bridge the added weight of the dogs would make it collapse!

Lurker the Second

And your reason for doing so still boggles the mind.

Hey, is this a new smilie? :cool:

Tizzy
09-03-2006, 14:23:31
It was new about 4 years ago

Lurker the Second
09-03-2006, 14:26:12
Oh.

Yes, but Iain knows Rich may well be there - you knew in advance... ;)

I really love Reading, wouldnt mind living there if it were needed for a job.

I don't think that makes sense :clueless:

mr_G
09-03-2006, 15:18:39
wooooooooooohooooo stop making no sense.

Tizzy
09-03-2006, 15:26:06
I always make no sense

mr_G
09-03-2006, 15:27:25
schjtop..........................hamlet time

Tizzy
09-03-2006, 15:31:00
The hamlet will grow into a village and then a town and then you'll be rich!

Venom
09-03-2006, 15:40:57
Or dead.

Provost Harrison
13-03-2006, 23:17:01
Well Reading is safe, the company changed their mind and decided they aren't interested in me after all...hmmm...

Funko
14-03-2006, 09:02:13
WOO! :beer:

I mean... er.. bad luck. :(

mr_G
14-03-2006, 09:05:29
:lol:

:p

Provost Harrison
14-03-2006, 16:39:34
They probably couldn't afford me :lol: They'd probably have to beat my current pay and I don't think they were looking at shelling out quite that much. The irony :beer:

Venom
14-03-2006, 17:04:57
I have an interview today.

Japher
14-03-2006, 17:33:48
you giving or receiving?

Venom
14-03-2006, 17:40:26
I'll be answering questions. Mostly incorrectly. I really just need some practice, it's been awhile since I've been on an interview and I want a different job.

Venom
14-03-2006, 17:54:39
Also, I have no idea what the position is. I sent in my resume like a month ago.

mr.G
14-03-2006, 18:12:44
succes

mr_G
14-03-2006, 21:45:25
never mind the weather.......:p

Venom
14-03-2006, 22:36:12
The interview took 2 hours. Is that good?

mr_G
14-03-2006, 22:36:47
jesjes you fewled them

Venom
15-03-2006, 01:48:34
I hid real good. In the back of the janitors closet.

Darkstar
15-03-2006, 02:58:21
2 hour interview? Sounds like you've got a fair chance of getting an offer then.

Funko
15-03-2006, 09:16:03
They were having so much fun laughing at your stupid answers they didn't want the interview to end.

Tizzy
15-03-2006, 09:51:15
Longest interview I've ever had was 90 minutes. I got that job.
Shortest interview I've ever had was 20 minutes. I got that too.

The time means nothing.

mr_G
15-03-2006, 09:53:58
2 hours of being polite and neat......hehehehehe hell of a job Venom hell of a job.

MoSe
15-03-2006, 10:40:24
The job is "intervewers trainer", you have to spar them, you'll have to play the dummy applicant for prospect interviewers who have to learn and practice how to interview.

That 50 hours a week.

Venom

Yeah, my shortest interview weighed in at approximately 4 minutes! She had my CV, glanced through it, asked me a few fairly short technical questions and asked, "Sod it, when can you start?" :lol: My longest was 2 hours and 15 minutes and it transpired they were only prepared to pay me 13k in the end so I felt I had wasted my time. I never got the job, and I'd have probably told them to stick it if they had...
