Performance Review Advice (changed)

My post was basically a question about how to respond to my higher ups when they asked me about school. The events of the day made all that a wash so it doesn't matter.

I went to class and after it (at 12) left my handy dandy purse in my desk.

I didn't realize I left it until I was getting out the van at work (at 12:30)and reached for it.

Performance review was supposed to be at 12:45.

I had to drive back to class immediately cuz there is a class in the room after mine, if I went back to Durham ASAP I could get my purse before the class let out and my purse possibly walking out with whomever sat at my desk.

I have my purse and everything is where it's supposed to be.

Since I had to come back to Durham anyways to put in some observation hours (I may explain that later) at 2:30 I saw no need to drive back to Raleigh just to come back to Durham and hour later.

Hence I'm blogging.

Are you absolutely sure you're leaving in July? I ask because once you tell them you're leaving they're going to expect you to be gone in July. If for whatever reason there is a delay in the internship starting or something else comes up then you could be sitting at home screwed. I'd tell them closer to the time I was actually going to leave. Definitely no sooner than June.

If they know you're leaving chances are they're going to treat you like dirt and work you like a dog trying to ring out every last minute and cent out of you. Keep it quite as long as you can and that should cut down on the retaliation and pettiness management and your co-workers may exhibit towards you.

That's my three cents. Can I get some change?

Don't tell 'em you leaving till it gets close to that time. Anything can happen between now and July. Plus they can let you go early. Companies can fire you without reason. They may try to pull that on you since they know you are leaving.

Freaky and Southern, yeah I thought about that and probably will wait a bit longer.

Yeah, I wouldn't say anything until It was time. If you tell them now, there's no telling what kind of tricks they would try and pull.

Ladynay said...

Yeah man, I am just going to give them a general answer when they ask me about it.

I would wait.

Glad you got your purse back.
