I need a new job.

I'm back to applying to every single thing I can see that looks remotely interesting.

It's been almost a month and I've just about had it working 6 days a week. I'm exhausted and I've stopped giving a crap. To make matters worse... they've decided to completely revamp the entire company. I took this position because it was a photography job and the sales part of it was extremely small. About a month ago, they came to us and said "Nevermind. This is a sales company. I need all of you to immediately be sales people and you all need to be the best. ITS BEEN TWO DAYS! WHY ARE YOU NOT SELLING A THOUSAND DOLLARS EVERYDAY?!"

To make matters worst, they completely changed how they determine how much we get paid. Basically, it's awful. I let them all know that I hated it and thought it was disgusting and they changed it a bit. It has made everyone in the office decide to quit and find new jobs though. I've already gotten 2 weeks notice from one girl, another has an interview on Tuesday for another job. I have a girl who let me know that a company is in the process of reviewing her resume and while the last girl hasn't told me anything... I'm pretty sure she's looking for a new position as well. When she doesn't like something she is always the first one to tell me exactly how she feels. The fact that I haven't heard from her a thing about the new pay system means she's lining something new up.

So yeah... I can only hope that I can find a new job before I'm the last one. I'm already exhausted, I can't imagine what it's going to be like if I have to train an entire new office all by myself. I can't do.

Thanks. I'm going to need all the luck I can get. I mean I didnt even mention the literal 3 hr lecture we got from the COO the other day about smiling. Apparently smiling is the most important thing about any of us. I think he stayed an extra hour because I refused to play his game and smile at him because 1. I thought he was full of shit 2. I was running through all the work I still had to get done in the next hour and 3. How he was holding us up during our lunch hour and I had two brand new trainees who hadn't eaten yet. He ended it by saying that if I couldn't smile, I couldn't love myself or anyone else. It was horrible and it concreted my desire to leave the company like yesterday.

Thanks, I'm going to need it. It's the worst and the sooner I can get out the better.

How odd that they's expect so much so fast. Awful. Good luck in your hunt.

I'm not even exaggerating either. They gave us the new stuff on Monday and on Wednesday the COO came in and yelled at us for like two hours because we didn't have his script perfectly memorized and everyone had their own version of the pitch AND because we weren't selling the $200 package to every single family. I just... ugh, I'm so finished with this place. : (
