Political Favor Cost Me My Job
Interim Assistant Director, Custodial Services (Former Employee) – Providence, RI – September 26, 2018
I was hired as an Interim appointment with the understanding that I would assume a full-time capacity based on performance. My job, unknown to me at the time of hire, had been promised to someone who had been promoted from a Maintenance Tech to an Assistant Director at or around the time of my hire with the promise that they would assume my job after biding their time in their new place in the organizational hierarchy. At the two year point, my job was given to that person without consideration of my contribution or the merits of my work.
This was perpetrated devoid of ethics and any semblance of a moral compass. In short, I got screwed by an old boys network that valued loyalty and ring kissing to competence and contribution.
It was simply wrong.
The college community, in general was a pleasure to work with.
Lack of moral leadership. Union environment and difficulty in unloading dead wood employees.
