Employer, a private, profit-making college selling courses to international students, told me to get out and never come back today. No reason given. No warnings prior to this day.
Sounds like an employer one should not work for, right?
Alexander College on Kingsway in Burnaby and W. Hastings in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
I never felt good and this action on the part of the employer is a good show of its attitude. I was not planning on accepting any further contracts with them.
But to kick you to the curb just before midterms?---never heard of such a thing!
To begin with, very little support and acknowledgment. Some women in admin positions came across as hostile as well as snooty.
There is too much management and supervision of everything. "Feedback" was two impromptu meetings giving very negative comments, and not all very relevant never mind fair or reasonable in third week, leaving me bruised and cold. No positive feedback except they had no issue to make of my teaching. In fact one neophyte super said, super impertinently, you are a fabulous teacher and all the students really like you.
The gossip mill ran overtime. The feedback made shocking direct claims about my character and offensive innuendo--nothing about my work performance but attacks on my character. "We want a team player." What was my team? Apparently, I was to give all to a team to which I clearly did not belong.
I felt it. If they wonder why I wasn't smiling with them much and why I bristled a couple of times, they should know. I did not feel welcome or supported.
They ditched me in time to avoid paying me severance. This must be why they were doing feedback so early after I started. Once over the 3-month mark, harder to let someone go and more expensive.
