I’ve been with my company for three years and stayed through the pandemic and huge staffing changes. I’ve been an extremely loyal employee. Last week, we had a blizzard and I even walked to the store to turn on the faucet and check for leaks two days in a row when I was asked by my boss. I lived close so no big deal (I wasn’t compensated btw). After reading this sub- I decided to get a new job that’s remote so I won’t have to be on my feet. I’m disabled and have ADA accommodations for the 10 hour a day standing customer service position I was in.
Anyways- I wrote a thorough and thoughtful letter of resignation stating my last day of employment would be March 1st. I even made sure to explain with an entire paragraph all the things I loved about the store and teared up when I read it aloud to my superior because I genuinely loved the position.
I was then told to clock in for my scheduled shift. I worked for an hour before being asked to begin my exit paperwork. I was a little confused and wasn’t expecting to start it to soon but my boss said they wanted it done now.
Then, they sat me down and wanted me to sign my “official” resignation document on their end. They told me to write my name and today’s date. I asked if I should fill in the blank spot for “Last Date Worked” as March 1st as stated in my letter. They said and I quote “Don’t worry about it”. As soon as I signed the paper I was told they were “fully staffed” and to turn in my keys and gather my belongings and exit through the back door.
I was absolutely shocked. They couldn’t even respect me or give me the dignity to work another two weeks or let me say goodbye to my coworkers. I feel so disgusted.
Thankfully- I’m starting a new job next month where I’ll be making more than that superior does and I’ll be doing it from my bed at home.
