[Failure] Epic Class at Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort

Tulin sitten takaisin Lapista 3 päivän jälkeen. Sain työsuhteen purun koeajalla. Syy: olen liian itsenäinen ja vanha. 😀 Siis seriously.

Postasin heidän FB- sivuilleen linkin. Tämän linkin. Ja siitä nousi  haloo. Omistaja ei kuulema ollut saanut untakaan, kun hän oli pohtinut miten tämä heille nyt on tuottanut huonoa mainetta

  • We are surprised you already have managerial experience. (visible in my CV)
  • I didn’t realize your age (41, too old to be cheated out of my rights?)
  • You are a leader, not a follower. We are not looking for leaders. (I applied a job as a Media and Marketing Manager)
  • You need your own company to run. (No, I want to work for You, or at least I think I did…)
  • Don’t think for a second you can make any independent decisions here before you have been here for at least THREE years. (again… manager … hello?)
  • Me: I am confused, I don’t know what is expected of me. Boss: we expect you to do exactly what we tell you to do and nothing extra.
  • Me: I don’t think this is working for me. I have been writing English for 20 years and I have done customer service for 12 years. I feel silly to have all my outgoing emails approved and proofread by my manager.  Boss: If you stay here we will scrutinize all your activities at least three years. We don’t feel you are up to that. This is why we want to terminate your contract on the probationary period effective immediately.

Että kiitos vaan Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort. Vaikka tässä minun työsuhteen purussa ei nyt sitten ollut mitään laitonta, koska tietenkin työsuhde purettiin sen takia, että en ollut “sopiva” työhön, niin haluan tuoda esille noita muita ongelmia. En oikeastaan ihmettele tätä irtisanomista, kun nyt olen lueskellut mitä kaikkea on tullut ko. paikasta vastaan. Aika rajuja juttuja.
