Walking away from YP was the best thing I ever did.
Search Consultant (Former Employee) – Tucker, GA – June 15, 2016
So many things to say. But will just summarize everything.
If you are not bff's with management, your screwed.
If you work your butt off and handle impossible workloads, your screwed.
If you think that hard work out shines the lazy, annoying people that sit around and talk nonsense all day, your screwed.
If you think your race won't matter at YP, your screwed.
If you have a parent die unexpectedly, your screwed.
If you are hit with a horrible illness (or diarrhea), your screwed.
If you don't want to be micromanaged and treated like a two year old who doesn't have a brain, your screwed.
Leaving this job, after years of being a contractor with no hope to be hired on even while being one of the top performers, was like leaving an abusive relationship. So glad it's over but very scarred.
Watch out, around every corner there are knives waiting around to back-stab you and betray you.
And I was one of the quiet, hard-working, trustworthy types of people. Just let me work and I will work hard and gladly work overtime. But if management would realize that verbally abusing people is not the way to motivate people, maybe they could get their act together.
To summarize YP: run, and run as fast as you can.
