    Thumbs down Job help advice

    Been a while since I stopped in on the forums, recently took a job offer as an outside sales rep. Was hopeful after talking to employees about how great this company was, family oriented, good people work here. I was set to work Monday to Friday 8 to 5. I was told I had to train for a few months to learn the job(dealership parts department) after 4 months they hired someone else for the position I took. I still have the title on my pay but was informed that he had experience in the outside sales field and needed they job. I had a feeling after 2 months it was the ole bait and switch. I was told that is have to stay 2 or more years for the opportunity.
    Since covid the dealer had been running on barely enough people to stay open, with me they want to keep the place open later and on weekends now forcing me to work. Would I be wrong to say eff it and find something else? Seems to me they looked about what I was hired for. I wasn't in a hurry to leave my last job and now I'm not in a position doing what I want

    There's other things you can do at the dealership, brah. You can train to take entire engines apart. That's what I wanted to do when I asked the dealership if they were hiring, not changing petty oil lol. Give me the hard chit.

    Thats actually pretty fukked up, and you say you were under the impression this was a family oriented business. I would play nice with them but secretly be working on an exit plan and ideally leave em more dry when you suddenly leave. Not cool man, if they are playing games like this with you off the jump what's it gonna be like in 5-10 years when you've committed to this company and its not so easy to find something else. Best look out for yourself in this situation.

    Unfortunately life had been enjoying the dick kicks lately. What they have me doing is what I left 6 years ago I only came back because the incentives offered were excellent commission, company car, cell, spending. I don't want to walk away. However I think the dishonesty had already ended my journey here.

    I was told monday to Friday 8 to 5. Company car and everything else to do the job. They said I need to train on their system to find parts. No big deal understandable. They hired the guy and never said anything to me in 4 month till I asked why he is only training here a month and I've been here 4 and still have gone out. I asked about 5 weeks in and they told me they don't have anywhere to send me. Like I said I had a bad feeling after about 3 weeks in and they weren't talking to me about what I applied for

    I would start looking somewhere else. No one wants to work for someone that jerks them around. Find another job before quitting though.

    In any job interview, the prospective employer will be lying 10 times more than the applicant.

    Be loyal to yourself.

    Nobody should ever spite you for doing what’s best for you and your family.
