I had accepted that second job a few weeks ago. When I first interviewed with the company, I watched an introductory video and I was a little uncomfortable with the owner, but I figured it was just some nervousness about working for a new place and all that and figured I would give it a shot.
My account coworkes have been great. They have been really helpful and very nice. I have been doing good work on the account. However, the company just feels like it is in flux. The owner called that mandatory meeting at 10 pm on a Friday night with no notice and every day she was emailing with changes that we needed to follow. There were emails and corrections to previously sent emails. I was beginning to feel more and more uncomfortable with how she was handling things and I just knew it wasn’t the right fit for me. So, I talked with my account manager and she tried to talk me into staying. She said that the owner would get like this and then calm down, so it sounds like this is not uncommon, but honestly – I do not need any more stress LOL! The nice thing is that the account manager put my status as leave of absence with the option to return at any time I want to. I don’t think I will do that, but it was very nice of her to give me that option.
So, that leaves me with just my old job, which is slow right now. It means less money because of that, but the sense of relief I felt yesterday was huge. I think I will wait until things settle down with the house before I look at other options. My advice? Don’t try to rehab a house and work 2 jobs LOL!
On a fun note – the flooring came in! (and yes, still working on the cabinets 😀 )
It’s cork flooring, which is something I have wanted for a long time. It’s eco friendly, water resistant (not waterproof), softer to walk on and dings and dents will come out over time. You just have to be careful not to drag stuff across it like a fridge that would tear the cork.
The flooring came a lot faster than expected. We aren’t ready for it yet, but at least it is ready and waiting!
