Timewaster Posted March 12, 2022 Share Posted March 12, 2022 A mate of mine took a big redundancy from a well paid job he had got by fluke and really wasn't qualified for. Unlike the impostor syndrome that most of us have from time to time, he was quite the opposite and believed he should be every other firms perfect candidate. He got a big chunk of money and decided to use that to tide him over until the perfect job landed in his lap. He was still in the pub of a weekend, still buying stuff he didn't need. He wouldn't take anything he felt was beneath him despite a few offers. Hell even I offered him a minimum wage driving job to tide him over but no. After about 18 months his money ran out and we didn't see him about so much. Last time I saw him he was running errands for a local building firm. I guess the lesson is, get A job. So long as it is not intolerable then you can search for something better at your leisure. Given what you told us of the firms treatment of staff, I would be VERY suspicious of the offer from another branch if it is technically a different firm. Could they take you on for a few months and then let you go, saving themselves the redundancy payout? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
