I’m going to vent, sigh…
I resigned my last full time position back in November, 2017. Since then I’ve been living on savings, and some inheritance money; it’s been rough. I have also accepted some work with elections Canada, and our provincial liquor board over the Christmas holidays.
I resigned from my last job because management were morons basically. My mandate was to implement an ISO 9001 Quality Management System, but it became clear after a few months that management was not at all interested in implementing a QMS, but we’re being forced into one by a major customer.
They held weekly management meetings, to which I (the quality manager) was not invited.
I tried calling my own management review meeting (an ISO 9001 requirement) as s baseline, but it was cancelled by upper management because “we weren’t ready.”
I suggested we initiate the program with training, awareness and competency, only to be informed that HR would not be involved.
I discovered a non-conformance log on a shared drive, that me, the QA manager was never made aware of.
This company lost the contract a year after I resigned due to management incompetence. No surprise.
So, fast forward to today. I sent a really nice email a week ago as to why I wanted to work for this company. They are tackling COVID!
They hired me as an overnight QC Inspector. Well below my pay grade, but I don’t give a shit. I’m back in the saddle, and all implications point to a full time job.
I’m chuffed. And drinking.
