A new job fell in my lap a few weeks ago and I took it. I haven’t been actively looking or applied anywhere since February. The manager actually called me at work asking if I was interested in coming to work for them.
I was suspicious of the call, I wasn’t sure it was legitimate. Turns out it was. Better hours, much, MUCH better pay. They wooed me, which was so strange to me. Introducing me to the owner and various managers. It was all very surreal, and stressful at the same time.
I’ve had an eye twitch since the initial call. Anxiety about making such a huge change, even given the inaction of the company that let JR harass me through my job. I like the store I’ve been at since the end of February, and my coworkers.
My boss and another coworker tried to get our district manager to give me a raise to try to keep me there full time. But the fact of the matter is, it’s too little, too late. I had to leave my original store because they refused to protect me, refused to follow their own company policy, repeatedly.
