what to do

July 6th, 2018 at 05:47 pm

So this is day four of new job. All in all it is very difficult to learn the processes when the "experts" who did this job for years up and quit together last week. Was super frustrated at the misinformation I have been given and having to go back and re-do so many processes. When I left for lunch I saw an email/ a text and missed call/ voice mail about the other job I had applied for a day or two before this one. Well they want to interview me Monday.
I think I will call in and take the interview. I am not sure if that is the right move as calling in so soon for no guarantee interview but Honestly was so frustrated today this industry uses tons of acronyms yet they have no sheet to list them. They say well there are too many to write them down when asking for help it is often half hour to hour before getting answer. As I left tonight a co-worker tells me I did more "work" by just jumping in and taking a shot at it then he did the first 2 months there. That is sad ( for the business) because honestly I feel like I only did about a days work in my mind.

I am not sure what to do. I think I will regret it if I pass up a chance at a job I might enjoy better as I am having issues with staying motivated to work fulltime. The interview place pays a bit less an hour but hopefully it is better organized with ACTUAL training. I prefer straight forward work to the game of guesstimates which is what this company has.

    That is pretty high praise from the coworker. I think we always feel that others give the same amount of effort that we do.

    As for the other job, might as well interview. It might turn out to be a great opportunity. If it doesn't, you still have this one to fall back on.

    It is not often that a comment makes me stop and think but honestly yours did. Maybe that is how I should look at it as praise instead of a complete confession of a zero work ethic.
    I am having many competing thoughts about backing out of interview etc. I would have never done this before just simply said I already took a job without even giving it another thought. I just look around and see everyone taking interviews or seeking new things all the time. I keep waiting for the right opportunities to match up when I am in between things but i keep missing out. so i will do the interview and if this job is mad about missing a day then so be it after four days i do not owe them loyalty.
