I have no problem with the workplace culture whatsoever. The problem started when I realized that I was expected to know already how to deal with Excel and MXP software programs. The trainer(s) began to lose patience and began proceedings to have me terminated just as I finally caught on to the overall plan of operations..
The trainers began to write me up for nitpicky reasons which I corrected on the spot. One of them admitted to the personnel director on board that they (the company) had made a mistake in hiring me in the first place since the job description never gave any requirements to have a working knowledge of those two computer programs in the first place.
Aside from having to work with a trainer who had a hidden agenda, the AQ had a great working atmosphere with genuinely good staff from the Captain all the way to engine room personnel.
It would behoove the main human resource personnel to investigate such training personnel to catch them at their own game.
In the meantime, the AQSC has lost a very good staff person who possessed all the fine qualities deemed necessary in a purser. How do I know this? Because of the praise I received from passengers and many onboard crew members. They could all see what was happening to me during my time spent in that position.
