Dec 31, '12 by Izzy11Quote from imintroubleYou work for company A and receive a job offer from company B. You accept the offer and give notice at company A. Company B then rescinds the offer the day before you are supposed to start. Company A won't rehire you for obvious reasons. How would that make you feel?You've hired someone to babysit your kids on New Years Eve. You've splurged on a new dress and shoes. Chipped in on a limo with four other couples. You've planned it for months. With the party tickets, outfit, limo, you've probably spent $300-400.
Then the babysitter calls and tells you the Smiths down the road offered five dollars more an hour, catered snacks. The babysitter's really sorry, but she really wanted to babysit the Smiths kids the whole time, and only said yes to you because they hadn't asked yet. The babysitter's really sorry, but she has to do what's best for her.
How would that make you feel?
You've just graduated nursing school and receive an offer from hospital A for their new grad program and you accept. You then get an offer from hospital B for their new grad program and turn it down because you've accepted the offer from hospital A. A week later, hospital A informs you they are cancelling their new grad program so you have no job now. How would that make you feel?
These scenarios have actually happened to people I know. Employers have no loyalty anymore. There's no reason for the OP to stay with the first job if she really wants the second one. She needs to accept that she is probably buring a bridge, but if she really wants the second job, then she should go for it without any guilt.
Dec 31, '12 by wish_me_luckI didn't read all the pages in the thread, but another thing you have to consider is not only burning bridges, but HR putting you on the "not eligible for rehire" list. I would have stuck with one job and if it didn't work out, then you have the second option.
You don't want to put yourself in a position of being stuck.
Jan 1, '13 by MBrickleFirst of all, I don't really consider this "fraud." Maybe an employer would feel different but I would be concerned with nurses making up experience they don't have
Second, all of our employers would fire us in a second. Less than that so I think it's incredibly naive to think we owe our employers anything.
Yes, you may burn a bridge, sure. But, if the job offer was better (ie: Better pay, facility or unit) then I say go for it! In my area the job market is awful and would love to be in your position.
Feb 9, '13 by bTRUEQuote from kobebryantHate to break it to you but one or the other is going to find out your dirty little secret. They will fire you.The new hospital AA offered me a job and doing a background check. But during the time of interview at AA I only had 4 weeks of working at BB Hospital and I did not put BB Hospital on my RESUME. I was currently taking all classes for BB's orientation because I just started. So I didn't feel the need to update my resume for the Nurse recruiter at AA because I had not had any clinical experience yet at BB. So I disclosed this and when they asked me if I had any experience I said no...
Now, I have a background check at AA with HR. Will they find out that I am currently working at BB? It's only been two months with BB... I was going to tell HR at AA but they want to call my current employer, etc... so I feel like I should just leave this off... because if they call my current employer they might not like the fact that they are orienting me and I am moving to a new hospital? So they could fire me right? Becuase although AA offered me a job it is not 100% yet.
I don't have any criminal record or anything and my current work place is good but I feel that I want to retire at the hospital I recieved my new offer at because I am a new grad.
Feb 11, '13 by Prairienurse1989Good god, life is to short! You want the new job offer? Take it girl! Worry about the minor details later, if they question you after your background check, give the rationale you gave us. No moral dilemma here.
