Nice, so are we talking retirement or a new employment opportunity YourGrandpa?

Me, well I have marked on my wall calendar, and yep, I'm that old I still use one :smirk: ) that I retired 5 years ago next week :eek: All I can say is that the 5 years went by so fast it is scary.....

I wish it were retirement. Same job, better company and more money.

I hated to leave, but I really had no other choice. The company has been struggling for years. Instead of investing in technology and the company's infrastructure to make the company better. They kept making cut-backs and delegating that work to the remaining employees. There's just not enough time in the day to do all the work that needs to be done, no matter how much overtime you work (and salary positions don't get paid for over time). Which leaves you in a constant state of panic/emergency to get what has to be done, done. Of course that leads to mounting mistakes which cost the company countless time and money. It's a never ending battle on a downward spiral. I am currently 1 of 3 remaining office/management staff (1 is the owner). I really don't know how/if they're going to be able to continue when I leave. Even though I feel bad for the company, I have to do what's best for my family and myself. I have offered to stay an additional month to train my replacement. But I really can't see anyone wanting to take this job for what they're going to pay.

Not like we've heard that line from administrators before :smirk:

"They'll be lost without me !"

2 weeks later

Thanks for sharing YourGrandpa. I understand the predicament completely. Some reading would have already experienced (or will experience) the same situation. Overloading a diminishing staff, them suffering excessive O/T to make ends meet is never a good thing. You'll be much better off leaving, clean slate and all :up:

Captain Mazda thanks for the mention of the Flesch-Kincaid test. I'd forgotten all about that.

You've managed to provide enough for our assumptions to be correct, Mr Worked for a tiny company.

I never had a problem getting paid and the manpower in the field always fluctuated with the amount of work. However, the management and administrative support staff kept dwindling and was never replaced.

A swing and a miss... Throw in a few comedy videos while you're at it. Confidence and funny go hand in hand.
