Pros: Day Time Drama - who needs TV
Cons: A Career Killer
To start, this is a JOB, and most people need one, so if you can't function in corporate America, were making money is the way of life; I suggest looking into a non-profit, or moving to a third world country... Here are the fun facts:
Yes, you will work hard, feel unappreciated, and be in constant fear of losing your job, but in my opinion, that is usually the excuse from those who never intended to do an honest days work and promised to over deliver during their interview: ie; arriving early, knows the job, motivated to learn and focused; believe me, you will be hired because they are desperate for someone who appears to be stable enough to chew, talk, walk and do all 3 exceptionally well at the same time as multitasking is critical, so make the most of the opportunity, and deliver what you exhibited.
If hired, this job is not for ever and you will move on within nine months; the key to sustaining is to learn the job, do it well within the 1st week, stay away from contributing to gossip and not becoming the dunce lured to the BFF (informant) world with someone at corporate (co-founder especially)... You are not special and many people have come and gone thinking they were and thought they had a future because of the special relationship established just by giving daily updates or inside scoop... DUNCE
There are NO excuses to continue blaming corporate for their inept attitude or childish ways - IT IS CLEARLY KNOWN, corporate is cruel, dysfunctional, bipolar, condescending, unprofessional, verbally abusive, back stabbing, terrible w/ OT & time off; you are dealing – more... with a unstable group here with NO self esteem, family issues, and no matter who has come and gone it remains the same...Welcome to the rejects of corporate America....
Remember, this is a JOB, consider yourself lucky (they don't even ask for a drug test or a back ground check here) so get to work, keep pushing the testo to help middle aged men and women feel 21 again, but stay weary of that internal wannabe with daddy issues who is looking to be your BFF, and carries that semi-auto carelessly to term falsely...
Good luck, but just be ready to bounce out at any time, as making payroll can be difficult. – less
