Unhappy Receptionist

Posted on Tue, Sep 2, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Here's an idea... When someone comes in to your office professionally dressed and saying they have an appointment with your HR Manager, they PROBABLY have an interview scheduled. Maybe it's not the BEST idea to be on a personal phone call complaining loudly about your job, that they're interviewing for a position they "didn't even ask if you wanted", your salary (and recent raise), and the company in general while that person is sitting in your lobby for 10 minutes, less than 4 feet away. Although this COULD HAVE been considered a "warning" to the potential new employee about the company, it mostly made you sound like a whiny asshole. You have a job, you clearly don't work very hard, and maybe you should consider that you're the first person people see when they come in. As tempting as it was to say something to the HR Manager, I didn't want to hurt MY chances to get a job I really want/need with a company that MANY other people speak very highly of. —Think before you speak
