Escorted off the premises of my employer
Posted 15 June 2012 - 12:31 PM
Gave two weeks notice and at the end of the day, released from the company early, paid til' the end of my notice. A two week paid vacation before starting with a new company.
It is not uncommon for companies to pay out an employee that gave notice right away. My manager came to my desk, and asked me to escort her to her boss' office. I knew it would be one of two things, an offer to keep me or a payout to leave. When I saw the security guard at the other manager's desk, I knew I was being released early. Thanked for my work, told I would always be welcomed back, and given a box with a manager and security escort to my desk to pack my personal belongings and then immediately escorted out of the building.
I am phenomenal at what I do, number one in the company and within my area, one of the best. Makes sense to not let me go the full two weeks, it is hard to see a top performer well known and respected go. Takes out employee morale. Everyone wants to know where you are going and are sending you their contact information for a reference. There is always a fear of recruiting. Of course I might refer a few people, but not until some time later and never immediately or until a few months have elapsed.
I consider it an early release from he!!, not with my employer but the specific area I've been in since the economy tanked, loss mitigation and the modifications. It is like working in the Twilight Zone. Purgatory for anyone that worked in underwriting, due diligence, risk management, credit, or auditing on the origination side and was transferred over to loss mit.

Congrats on the vacation! Are you headed to a new field?
Not a new field, but underwriting and risk management on the origination side. I have been working on the most messed up side one can work in, the modification side. No more! Most people that do underwriting in modifications come from origination as auditors/credit admin's/underwriters, had to transfer to loss mit. when the market crashed.

After two interviews, the rejection reason was they opted to go w/ a "stronger candidate." That pissed me off. Wow. In my line of work, that would be the equivalent of saying I'd rather put a mule in the Kentucky Derby than a thoroughbread. An executive came down to our region recently recognizing my group as the number one performing group in the nation, with myself as number within the group based on performance. For my employer and size, that is pretty amazing. The higher up could not make the final decision, the lackey on the the oppositie sode of the country was the hiring manager. The lackey has messed up on the design of simple processes, given wrong information, and does not know the job in detail. I've complained about her various times prior to my interview. Ultimately, she went with a friend she had in the company.
Sounds a little arrogant, but I am very good at what I do and I just can't see taking my skillset to propel her group to number one. Even though I did not receive the promotion, she would have benefitted.
That was something really sweet and a bit of justice giving my notice the same day with an outside competitor after being rejected for an internal posting.
