vitalaire healthcare lost a good employee today
Last week I lodged a complaint against the area manager for Vitalaire in Southern Alberta.
The big kahuna came down from Edmonton today, to let me know that ALL my claims were unsubstantiated and he believes it comes down to a personality conflict. He gave me two weeks notice, which I declined. They'll pay me out.
He had a cab waiting for me, as he was taking my company van and cellphone.
I'm not sure how I feel - certainly, I'm disappointed that it came to this. I'm really going to miss my customers! But I will NOT miss Karim, the one I've been writing about under the pseudonym Omar.
One of the very first things he ever said to me was "What is your status and why are you driving one of those new vans?"
The next was to tell me that I was a "dominant woman" and had to back off.
He yelled at me every time I called to let him know I was working overtime.
I hope my next position is easier than the last few I've had. I know that I can have problems with bad managers but otherwise I am an awesome catch!
