Managers These Days

Case 1

A customer purchased a product by this company I am working for, and encountered some issues, and insisted on having a refund. The Sales team refuses to take his calls, and the Sales Regional Manager asked me to get his email address. Even a Regional Manager does not have the guts to take on the responsibility of just answering a call from a dismayed customer. What kinda manager is that? What capabilities does she have, other than behaving like an Ah Lian and putting on layers of make-up?

 

Case 2

There is a conference call scheduled for tonight, and all employees are expected to dial in from all over the globe. I did not know, as I am simply a receptionist, and nothing else, except for the email from the CEO, was received a couple of days ago. This morning, HR sent a mass email to remind on this call. I asked if everyone has to participate. Indeed. I do not know if it is a simple teleconference thingy, or do I have to log in to Webex. When I asked the HR senior which number to call from our end, she did not reply. Till now. I asked another HR colleague, he was in a meeting, and asked me to check with the HR senior. I then asked another colleague, and she told me she has an appointment tonight, so she will not be dialing in. She asked me to tell my HR manager that I have an appointment to excuse myself from it.

I then sent a Skype message to my HR manager, asking her if everyone has to call in, she replied, “Yes.” I sensed the dullness in me straightaway, and simply asked if the toll-free number is what we are supposed to dial. She replied with another “Yes”. Period. I refused to say a word more. If I make any excuses, I suppose she will dislike me more, and my days here will be more tortured than ever. Thus, I resigned to my fate. If everyone has to dial in, why are some people excused? This is the so-called double-standard, and I hate it so.

一觉醒来就觉得很累,是精神上和心灵上的累。很不想上班。脑海里反复折腾了以后,还是乖乖地起床梳洗准备迎接这一天的挑战。

人啊,上班不就为了钱吗?为何不能融洽的相处?为何非得尔虞我诈,闹得你死我活?为何非得把某人踢出局,才能显得自己能干?为何在奖赏一个人的同时,非得淘汰另一个人?为何老实人就非得被牺牲,而装模作样的人就能为所欲为?

看着公司里每天上演勾心斗角的闹剧,我能带着多愉悦的心情期待着工作?

人,为何要为难另一个人?

找到工作了!

今天一早就起来了,5点半。因为早上9点有个工作面试,所以起个特早,为了不要迟到。面试完了,有些失望,因为薪资离我的理想中的要底很多,将近一半。可是待遇听起来是不错的。找了半年的工作,这次的面试算是比较让我觉得舒服的一次。感觉那里的人还可以,工作环境也挺好的,所以愿意尝试一下。面试官说,如果表现特好的话,不用3个月就可以通过试用期,还有望加薪。我想我那么努力工作,应该可以吧!后来,他们说会再打电话让我知道。过了约一个小时后,我就接到电话说我被录取了。虽然不是特别开心,但是还是感到庆幸的。终于不用继续失业了。是好事!下星期一开工,好期待!希望老板们和同事们都好相处,不要欺负我就好!加油!
