Need some career advice. I graduated about a year ago. I was lucky enough to have secured a job despite the economy.
However, the people in the company was extremely toxic and I quit my job within 6 months (it was a rotation program and I quit during the 1st rotation) as I was having alot of mental health problems (panic attack, anxiety, probably depression due to the job)
I then joined this multinational company which was actively hiring and got in.
However, I now understand why they are always hiring: turnover is extremely high as the workload is very heavy.
My supervisor is also an extremely micromanager (A very polite way to put it).
During my regular check-ins with her, I mentioned how the workload might be heavy sometimes. And so she asked me to create a journal of some sort to take down how long I take to do each activity every day. In my next check-in with her, she asked me to list down and quantify how long I took to do each activity in the past week.
Above all, she commented about how my hair was messy etc ( but mind you I am in an ops position with no need of meeting any external customers)
Just wanted to clarify, that everyone I have spoken to in my team thinks that the workload is too heavy and we have high turnover rates (On average 1 year – 2 years. once, the fastest to leave would be in less than 4 weeks). Everyone wants to leave.
When the team makes a small mistake in their work, we would have to start digging out past records and my manager would press you hard to find out why did you make that particular error. Higher-ups are like that too and like to ask ‘if you screwed up’. This digging of past records served completely no purpose at all and it isn’t any life and death situation. Digging up the past records was just to prove the point to them on how you “screwed up”.
Not to mention, we still had to report back to the office despite our work being fully capable of being done at home.
I completely see no future with the team and can’t wait to leave every single day.
But with my current job record: 1st job being about 6 months and I am in my current job in only about 6 months too, would anyone hire me?
Internal transfer within my current company might be difficult as we would have to declare to our managers once we get the interview (i don’t understand too). You get the picture from there
