Why Did You Quit Your Last Job by Robertkenny(m): 5:10am On Jun 08
Okoye Juliana

My last job was horrible. It was an incredibly abusive situation. It was a law firm and the main shareholder was a huge jerk. I always say this joke to a close colleague of mine “Our boss his here now, let watch the Devil wear Prada”. He would yell at you in front of everyone, curse and scream “Are you a craze lout?!”. One time he threw his lunch wrap at me because they delivered it with whole wheat wrap instead of spinach (I wasn’t the one who ordered it and even so, why would it be his assistants fault if the restaurant messed up?). He even yelled at his wife in front of everyone. People had literal panic attacks and mental breakdowns not only from the abuse but because he would place impossible deadlines and overall stress us out. We were working on a class action lawsuit. We were expecting to get literally over 10 thousand responses (if I remember correctly Defensive was arguing that the number of claimants was false and so now were requesting proof) and he wanted us to open every single one, scan them in and file them in by a certain date. I remember doing the math and if we (it was a group of 5 of us) literally stopped doing our jobs and just spend the next week opening letters from open till close we still would not be done on time, and that didn’t include scanning them in but he didn’t care. He would walk in and yell at us that we were too slow and not good for anything. One girl had a mental breakdown after she spent basically her last three days living at the office. She would sleep at her desk and shower in the gym downstairs because of how much work he gave her.

It was honestly one of the worst work environments I had ever been in, I finally give up the job last year. Before quitting my old job, I made sure I secured a better job with great management team.

Thank you Bogger for sharing my story.

We were among the first people that started the company, we did so many things outside our job descriptions just to keep the company afloat. Even went for marketing...

But when the company started making progress, new set of people were brought in and offered salaries higher than ours. We complained and after few months nothing significant was done...so we moved!

Me and the CEO went for a surprise flexing time at a 5star bar around the neighborhood (to celebrate my birthday). Now Instead of ordering local drinks and fish (my usual), they now put bacchus wine and chicken in front of me. I was so mad! angry I'm like after all I've done for this company. angry Next day, I tendered my resignation.

It was a target-driven job. The KPI was outrageously insane and unrealistic. Mahn, the job made me miserable, sick, frustrated and depressed.

I swore never to work for any Indian-one-man business, not to talk of taking any target-driven retail sales job unless it is oil or on-demand electricity token.

Thank God for today that we are balling in a multinational at B2B level with industry best practice and policies.

Back then in 2018, i worked for a company for good 2years with my ND certificate, they were paying me 40k for good 2yrs without any increase in salary. And they were over labouring me, imagine doing the work of 4 people at a time, they don't want to employ another workers, because they thought that they were over paying me.

I didn't quit, I was axed (in the same week I was planning to quit due to the Mess of an organization they were). Since then I've been making at least 2x my salary monthly doing legit businesses and also having free time to do other things and learn new skills.

Right now the Organization and it's staffs are not finding it funny(An educational organization which failed their recent accreditation) and I have every reason to believe it was established for the sole purpose of Money Laundry

Not surprised when I read that somewhere(not in Nigeria), employees Are quitting Instead of Giving Up Working From Home - The drive to get people back into offices is clashing with workers who’ve embraced remote work as the new normal

This rarely happens in Nigeria because our Labour market is loose. A tight Labor market means the Economy is close to full employment and recruitment becomes difficult placing upward pressure on wages.

Hence the Reason your mates in Germany or Switzerland are earning x25 of your current salary while doing basically the same work as you are doing (albeit in a better working environment)

However in a loose labour market like ours, as an employee or future employee, you need leverage in form of Talent and Skills to be able to dump that organization that is frustrating you to ensure you don't stay Unemployed for long b4 you get a better offer. One of the fields you can consider acquiring a skill is I.T

Hence I am using this opportunity to advert1se my product(below)

We've almost finish building the product (e-commerce software) of the company, work isn't much again and salary isn't review upward, least I forget the company is a startup and profit isn't forthcoming, the Buhari economy look like something that may soon swallow the company

I got a better offer and moved, but I negotiated with the company to continue managing the softwares I built on a part-time basis which of cause they swiftly agreed to (I did that so I will continue to earn what my colleague termed pension)
It's been so good so far both the new and the old job

The story of my last job! I did all sorts- from accounts, to customer service, to admin, to marketing...just to keep it running at a low cost and the midget still slashed the pioneers' salaries by 1️5% against the upward review of salaries he had promised us once ROI starts yielding. And, to crown it all, he began paying the old staff their due salaries at the end of a new month, so as not to leave. I resigned from the job and didn't get paid. He deducted pension without remitting a dime.

My closing time was adjusted from 5pm to 7pm and he'd call me up to report to the office at 9-1️0pm just because I lived near the office. Monday- Saturday and would still order us to come on Sundays. No day off! If we were not taking items to his house, he was mandating us to go to the field or to meet with clients at various locations. No lunch. Only calculated t- fare given. Haaa!

He called us poor at the slightest snap.

Most Nigerian employers are users.

. My last Job was at Enyo filling station as a customer attendant. Though the salary was not something to talk about but the daily insensitive is very much appreciated and if calculated by the end of the month, it's more or less receiving #150,000 monthly. But the express road where the station is located is under construction by FG. So they have to close the station for now and I'm still in search of better one. Hope anyone can help out 07063792645
