does anyone follow the rules

May 31st, 2019 at 05:42 pm

so I did talk with a few other job items but was waiting thinking I would hear any day on start time on the job OFFERED and ACCEPTED on May 20th
I finally told them I had other offers was no longer waiting since I had not heard back from them and it has been almost 2 weeks. Immediately I got a phone call with many excuses for the delay etc.
they use an extremely small lab for employment screenings the page you print out and take had in all caps none would be done without an appointment so I followed the RULES and made the soonest possible. when I got there I found even with an all caps note in a different color from all of the page the squeezed ppl in IF they did not make an appointment.
WHY do I mention this ??
Because the first EXCUSE for dragging this out seemed to be insinuating it is MY fault I had to wait a few days for my appointment.
I guess I should have just showed up and demanded to be worked in sooner????
I am so angry now even though they also said they do not have computers set up for this job and my access although I was just on their system 30 days ago..... I passed on another opportunity at this point and with a Wednesday June 5th start date my first check will be for only 24 hrs.
this frustration is added to my other items I have had to deal with lately with a bank and others things.
the area I now live in just has this idea of oh well that is how things work... NO you keep a candidate in the loop as to timeframe etc not wait until they tell you I am thinking of taking something else. No wonder they seem so surprised when they find a good person most would have moved on.
I am at a loss lately as to why I HONOR my word. READ and follow rules and simply do my best when it seems like NO one else is.

I am simply at the point where I have calculated my expected return on this job and by January.
I will be moving back to my original city where People have more respect for others.

    I am so sorry you went through that. If they’re that unorganized during the hiring process, I can’t imagine ag working there

    I am so sorry you are going through this. Clearly, they don't seem organized when they can't even get their employment screening right and don't have a computer for you to use.

    this is amazing since this is a world wide company in healthcare!!!!

    Scary to think about after seeing their incompetence and attitude and the whole job is trying to do all data orders for a massive RECALL effort. Yeah that is why it was suppose to be ASAP LOL
    I am not going to get myself worked up about it anymore. I guess I am just old school and I should have just blown them off and taken another job faster.

    I too am a rule follower and it fries me when folks don't and won't follow the rules, yet things work out for them while I'm left waiting. I'm so sorry.

    I'm so sorry you experienced this. They seem like a terrible company to work for.

    Thanks for listening to me vent this has been trying.
    I can honestly say it is refreshing not to hear the same old " that is how things are now days" which I can attest to that is simply not true.
    What a sad state of affairs that some people think that makes the unprofessionalism acceptable. I want to find a good solid place to work and can verify that the larger the organization the worse it is and a clear sign is if it is owned by some group that is international.
    I will honor my word as I turned down other jobs already for this but I will be actively looking to leave. I used to think that was wrong since I agreed to the length of assignment etc but since they have zero courtesy towards me I no longer feel it is worth always being the person who gives 100% and getting 60 % in return.
