Work ***** - Am I getting the short end of the stick?

Jun 29, 2011 - 4 comments

I got my answer today.  I cannot do any work from home.  It still comes down to not being able to monitor what I am doing and not knowing my working conditions at home.  Which, I really do not understand since I have gone over all of this several times and if there were still question, why wasn't I asked these questions?

To top it all off, they eluded to my not performing as well as I should given my experience.  What's funny is, they want more sales out of me but I don't have a sales background and was not hired as a sales person.  I have a customer service and supervisory background.  And basically, if I don't start bringing in more sales it will affect my performance review in September and they only way they will consider letting me work from home is to make more sales.

Oh, there was more that was said but I just can't get into right now.  Needless to say, I am so very upset.  After this was told to me, I wasn't offered an alternative and don't know if the initially offering still stands.  I just don't have the energy or nerve to ask right now as I was already ready to cry when I got this news.

I'm really not surprised that they tried to turn it around on you..That's Corporate America in a nut shell...Just try to hang in there. I'd say you should ask about the option of going part time, hell what's the worst that can happen? They say no!!! They've already said no to everything else you've asked..They CANNOT fire you for asking..I'm so sorry you have to deal with this..Keeping you in my prayers that you find a solution that works best all around:)

Thank you!  Most likely I will ask to go part time, otherwise I will burn through all my vacation time in no time.  And yes, worst they can do is say no.  If they say no, I won't be too surprised at that either at this point.  Just couldn't bring myself to go in today so I stayed home.  I'll spend the day with my girls and prepare for Lexi's first therapy this afternoon.  And...start the search for a new job just in case.
