Huh?!? Did you just yolo and played hooky?
Shit man, is everything okay?
Upper management forgot to check the calendar. They needed me to do some work on Friday and then all of our backups failed on Saturday because of an update. They freaked the fuck out because I didn't answer my phone when they called on Friday because I was on an airplane. It was only an internship really but I am still rather upset that they were really unprofessional about it.
Sorry to hear, I hope that you can work this out with them. Seems like a huge misunderstanding.
I am not going to work it out with them. The working conditions were super shitty and the employees there were rather unprofessional.
Internships are a learning experience for sure. Putting up with certain kinds of crap are part of it, but it sounds like this is the kind of crap up with one must not put.
I hope you find something better soon.
Don't let it get you down. Jobs are like women, plenty out there to choose from.
Sorry to hear it, man. Strangely, it is almost always the case that being forced to go look for another job is the best thing that can happen to your career. I suspect before long you'll be looking back and saying "Thank god they let me go!"
Because you were supposed to work and you took off or what?
Thanks everyone for the kind words. I think it will get better. I got a plan to work with my school and get some help on updating my resume for the IT career field.
Sorry about the shitty situation, but I agree with others that it's probably for the best. Plenty of better opportunities out there if you know where to look. Best of luck with the search.
The big bummer is the loss of a reference. If they let you go over a planned trip and their mistake, then you don't want anyone calling them and asking about you...
Sorry to hear this Ryu. If you advised the company about your trip it's up to them to find someone to fill the gap. It sounds to me like those guys are a bit dysfunctional.
Yeah very dysfunctional now that you think about it.
Maybe you can demand a letter of recommendation from their HR dept after you tell them about the countless mistake leading them to blame you...
Blessing in disguise perhaps, internships can be traps. I know you got skills and friends here when you need them. Remember to breathe.
That sucks. Sounds like they are blaming you for their own incompetence. It happens in life and it's a good lesson in CYA and company politics.
boo-urns! Hope someone better picks you up as their IT nerd, then you can finally afford those K1000's ;)
