What do you do if everything in your soul tells you to run, not walk the other way? So I started a job about 1.5 months ago. It started as a low paying entry level job. Half way through they lost a person in a better paying position and they wanted me to take it (there are three aspects to the position: law, accounting and system administrator; 2 out of 3 of these things I DO NOT have experience in). So my training transitioned to that job. It would be more money, more responsibility and more experience, health benefits (we have none right now) and 401k. Also, the boss is very nice (but has cancer).
The down sides: oy.... The environment is not very corporate (in this case a bad thing); the lady who trains me doesn't feel it her job to do so and she does a terrible job of training and so there are things I maybe should know by now but don't (management is aware of it). This lady talks down to me like I'm an idiot (probably because she sucks at training - it's a defense mechanism). I asked a question the other day and she said I should use some common sense in asking a question. Look lady, I don't know this business, you have been working here much longer and I am trying to figure out why it is that you all do what you do. Where I come from people are sweet, patient and happy to answer your questions as long as it will help you do your job better. Anyway, back to the bad list... they are 3 people short in the department. The biggest reason, I already don't want to go back tomorrow. I share an office with the woman who is "training" me. The good thing is that if I take the position my office is more secluded and all mine. I don't know if I should stick it out and try (I'm worried I will either fall on my face or work my butt into the ground trying not to). Oh ladies what do I do???? This decision would be so much easier if only I could use as an excuse that I am pregnant... as we planned for me to stay home the first 5 years of the child's life. I am extra sensitive today... hoping it's pg but more likely is AF coming on. DAMN!
