I just quit a job I was at 3 weeks because if I didn't quit, I was sure they would put me on the PRN list and never call, which is the same as being terminated but there's no benefits paid.
I liked the job alot. I had no orientation but I found my way. The job, a clinic, was fraught with difficulties and had an entire new crew/staff, from the front office to all nurses but one. One doctor has put her notice in, and another was fired on my second day. The director went around and jacked everyone's schedules day after day. The place was so broke there was no toilet paper for two days (this included the adjoining hospital) because the facility had not paid its bills for over 3 months.
It was clear they needed to downsize and get rid of the new nurse (me) because of firing that one doctor, and there was an old timer nurse who stood around doing nothing, gossiping and started working when the directors came in, an made herself look invincible.
Anyway, after 3 weeks the director told me in so many words that I wasn't fitting in with the rest of the staff. She didn't think I was putting in the effort to learn everything I needed to know about that facility, when in actuality I had spent alot of time stocking, sorting, doing inventory, etc. and felt comfortable with those things. Even as I sat there doing another nurses work, she told me didn't think I was offering my help to other nurses, and "this place needs to work as a team."
Bottom line was that they needed to lay someone off and didn't want to pay any benefits so instead of just cutting my hours or being honest, they came up with a bunch of mixed up reasons why it had to be my fault, because of my inability to mingle with the others, or perhaps I wasn't a hard enough worker, etc.
But the funny thing is that I had quit my previous job of almost 3 years to change jobs and work at this clinic, because it was closer to home. And in that huge facility, I had earned a reputation for being an extremely hard-working, ethical and competent worker. In fact, when I resigned, the administrator called me at home and told me how disapointed she was to learn I had left and asked me what might she do to get me to go back to work there. She told me I was "an uncommon and exceptionally professional nurse."
And in less than 3 weeks, the new place denied seeing any of that exceptional work ethic or potential in me. So they told me they were "giving me another week and would see how it went," and at the end of the shift, that was it for me. They can have the office politics, the gossip mongering, the no-job security inducing watching your back all the time.
Bottom line: when a facility has huge turnover: run.
