Got a factory job in 2014. It was in a plastic fabricating company in Ajao, I actually went with two of my friends. We were told to resume the next evening (night shift). The thought of what I was going to do with the salary of about 25k was the driving force. Well after working for a night, one of my friend said he could not cope with the work. It was actually stressful sha. We all agreed to quit together

So yeah a day

Mine was 2 months, and I still regret for leaving till today.

My story, I got a job paying me less than 100k but close to it. The pay was a huge turnoff, although there were rumours flying round that their salary is been reviewed and there will be a huge increase very soon, but I could not wait.

Along the line I saw another job paying x3 of that amount, though I have to do their training school and if I pass I will taken fully.

All things being equal, I did not meet the cutoff for the training school, I was 3 marks short of it.

Now I am unemployed cry cry

My story right now.

A hotel work as a bar man in warri.
Started off with night shift. Around 2am early Saturday, we were already crashing cos there was nobody to attend to.
Three guys and a young lady coming back from night club drunk were making noise and disturbing the night looking for food that night. The cook was an elderly woman(I mean elderly). One of the guys slapped her and asked her if there is food, she said there is only egg sauce but she will prepare yam as fast as she can. The idiot slapped her again, I came down and slapped him back.
Manager came down, early mor mor they sacked me. lol just a night

One month
worked for a manufacturing company owned by Indians as a secretary. The pay was 15k. Those people are so wicked. The insults eeh on top 15k salary no be here. The reason I left was because one of the Ogas started asking me out and I refused...He started threatening to sack me. I resigned before he could carry out his threat.
