So, it’s been almost a year since I’ve quit my job. (I can’t believe it’s been that long!) When I first left, I was very curious of my replacement—whether she was doing well or not. Some of my former coworkers have said she was no me. After several months, I figured she was doing well as I hadn’t heard any complaints about her.
Out of the blue, one of my friends told me that my replacement has been let go. Apparently, she was let go because she didn’t have enough experience and didn’t have the right skill set for the job. I feel really bad for her, as she’s almost a year in and they’ve waited this long to let her go. If they had so many problems with her, they should’ve addressed it with her sooner or trained her. OR, maybe they shouldn’t have hired her at all!
However, I’m not surprised. This has happened before with another coworker. My ex-boss let her go saying she lost the company thousands of dollars, asked too many questions, and was very unprofessional—none of which were true. When she asked my ex-boss for evidence of these so-called reasons, my ex-boss refused. There HAS to be a better way of letting someone go, rather than inventing reasons to get rid of them.
