Done and Done

It’s the end of my job as I know it. Last night I had my last full night of work, and this evening I only had to do my exit interview with one of the upper management before I got out of there.

Things I found out: I had been in consideration for an upcoming system administration position, but my manager neglected to tell me. If I could’ve stayed here, made a lot more money, plus gotten additional training and certifications, I probably would’ve done it. But it’s a little too late now.

Exit interviews are kinda odd like that. You find out things you didn’t know, and you tell somebody things they didn’t know about problems within the department. I made lots of complaints about ergonomics, generic complaints about coworkers, and voiced a few general gripes I’ve heard from friends of mine who work in other positions. I don’t know how much good it will do, but hopefully I voiced things in such a way that it’ll be considered and result in positive change. Who knows though.

I may have a place lined up to live. It’ll be fairly affordable and not far from my new job once I make the move. I’ll be finalizing details on it hopefully by Monday or Tuesday. My target for moving is next Friday, but I’ve still got to work out details of how I will move my things up there.

More updates later. For now, Jack’s Mannequin on my headphones.

One thought on “Done and Done”

  1. Hey SuperCal.

    Thanks for the update. I agree with your point about exit interviews — they seem to come to late to make a difference (for you anyway), but maybe that’s the point. Most people are completely honest only when they no longer have anything to lose (or gain (and some not even then)), so they wait until you are leaving to try to find out what you really thought about working there. Hopefully your comments will help improve things for “future generations” of employees.

    Don’t fret about what might have been has you stayed. If I had stayed at my bank job, no doubt I’d have had a very different, and in some ways easier path in life, but it wasn’t the plan God had for me. Things work out the way they do for a reason. If you are trying to follow God and do what is right, then you can be confident that things will work out as they should. That doesn’t mean that life will always be fun or easy. God’s definition of “best” does not always match with mine.
