Quit my job (again)... - page 2

I know it looks bad to job hop. I know it looks bad to not give two weeks notice. I know sometimes things get bad before they get better, but I just couldn't do it anymore. My hours were recently... Read More

    Why are you "ineligible" for rehire? Is it just b/c you quit?

    That's not reason for you to be ineligible.. I can see if you were a horrible employee or that if you gave NO notice for your resignation.

    I'm ineligible because I gave less than 30 days notice. I actually gave less than two weeks notice. I told them I was not aware that they wanted 30 days notice because despite asking for one several times, I was denied a copy of the policy manual. They didn't respond to that comment.

    If you haven't done so already, I would sit down and write out everything that happened while you were there. You may need it. Documenting it all while it's going on is best, but better now than never.

    Sometimes it's very convenient to blame problems on a former staff member.

    It sounds like anything is better than that place. I would have bailed after my first shift.

    Yeah, I'm thinking the same!! Among other things, I have issues with scrubbing my own toilets! I can't imagine being responsible for that AND patient care as well.

    That place sounds like a little house of horrors... glad you're out of there!

    I just left a place like this. Don't blame you. I think with the way some of these LTC facilities are run, it is almost ridiculous to call someone a job hopper. Good luck to you.

    Take it. Your current place sounds like a horror show.
    And document your observations of abuse and neglect, and forward to your health department.

    The patients deserve better. You have nothing to lose now.

    Well...I have been offered a job on the medical floor at the biggest hospital in the area. It is the one I really wanted, so I accepted. As long as my references check out OK and my drug screen is negative, I start orientation on the 23rd. I have a week of general orientation and then I get to start training on the floor. I'm pretty excited. I've been told it is the busiest and most demanding floor in the hospital...I hope I can keep up with the pace!

    You know most nurses in my neck of the woods do a bit of job hopping and no one much cares. It sounds like your situation is intolerable, pitching in is one thing but you are being taken advantage of- I agree sounds like a nightmare-Good luck on your next venture, it's gotta be better!!
