Sorry about what happened. I do see your posts and you are quite an optimistic and calm man. Congrats on your upcoming fatherhood and better jobs ahead.



They won’t sack you, but the things you’ll see ehn? E go big pass your eyes.

Any organization that has a high staff turnover rate is most likely a bad one. Except it is KPMG. lipsrsealed

I just want a lot of people to learn from my experience look before you leap.

I got 3 employment letter last year, and to resume the same day. Two on the mainland and one on the island.

One of the two on the mainland has a better salary than the other two, so I went for the better salary, as an upcoming father.

But believe me I didn’t know that they were only using money to entice people and then tell them to leave at their own time.

I received the shocking of my life when I opened my mail on Thursday to do a handover to a colleague on Friday last week.

I couldn’t cry, but I just had to hold back my tears and I brought out my phone and looked at my 2month old baby and moved on.

My advice, please don’t be in a rush to chose a job or switch that job and lastly always be prayerful that God should direct your path.

That was how I lost the 3 jobs
Sorry about your predicament. You will find your feet soonest.
Re: How I Chose The Wrong Job by drLammy(m): 7:38pm On Feb 21
Don't be too hard on yourself, you did nothing wrong

You did what a normal human will do, after weighing the pros and cons before going in.the job
Now it's time to move ON and keep being resilient.

Best wishes Mahn.

Thank you bro for the word of encouragement.

I actually saw the sign the 5th week I entered, but there’s little or nothing I could do, as I have sent mail to the other two that I have gotten a job.

I really appreciate your prayers

Never say never!
Give it a try by resending them mails indicating that you are available. You may be lucky to be re-invited.

Bro pls continue to believe in whatever fetched you those 3 jobs, I bet you it will shine bright again. You can't blame yourself, we all need the money, more money can always make things better. Life itself is a risk. Remember, you may not know what those other 2 choices hold, but above all you've got life and the spirit to push. So, next time if you have multiple offer and the one with the highest pay is comfortable for you, you will have to pick it again.

I’ll say they are good trainers. Most times their employees get snatched or they move on to something better on their own.

You can mail the other two to ask if their offers were still open. Just explain all what happened honestly to them. Tell them you got 3 offers at once but the one you choose deceived you.

Kindly do the world a favour: go to Glassdoor website and do an anonymous review on the company.

That's how I got 2 offers and checked out the companies on the site. On one of the companies, I saw, "OWED SEVERAL MONTHS SALARY" as a comment by a former employee.

I JÁPA!

Maybe you are not qualified as they may have seen from the few months you have worked.

It is called probation period, getting a new job is not for relaxation but sitting up. No company will keep someone that they think is PURE (Previously Unidentified Recruitment Error).

Some company will upskill u, but this one decided to move on with a better person
you nailed it. That's what happened to the op and he's making us think th company is bad. Some company are a lil patient to bring u up to speed, he even had a 2weeks grace, he must be very terrible at his job coz u can't tell me within 3weeks he suddenly developed one hater that played a political move on him.
Re: How I Chose The Wrong Job by Adebaba1(m): 8:31pm On Feb 21
I can relate bro, really sorry God will make a way

I left my previous job earlier this year to a new startup, the reason I left was because my previous workplace wasn't structured, it was a one man business, closed late most times 10pm, I stay at egbeda and work on the island, pay less than 100k, I already worked for 2years...I was really fed up that's why I left

I was excited to join the company, but it turned out to be a bad decision, in my previous office, we were working with a non familiar language, but I was learning java at the side, my new job was based on java so I was excited to join because I will gain more knowledge on the language and come in as an intern.


I didn't know I was to replace the java developer that was there. To cut the long story short, I was asked to leave the second week. It was really sad for me.

I had to talk some people to speak to my former boss about returning back. I actually didn't want to return but my parents asked me to.

Now I'm stuck till probably next year

Life is just a mystery
