    Default OT (poll); I am the worlds worst employee...

    And yes i am kind of proud, basically asked for a demotion at work as fed up of being a Team Coordinator in a curry factory, now i'm base level grunt again - much nicer, and only £20/week less money (really makes me wonder if TC is worth the effort)

    Anyways, onto the poll....

    below is the actually letter i wrote, and the poll is based on this;

    I am writing to inform you of my decision to stand down from the role as Team Coordinator [in High Risk] and return to the position of Production Operative. I would like this to be effective from the nearest available opportunity.

    My main reason for this is that over the past year I have come to feel that this is neither the right direction for me at the moment, and that I am currently not the best person for the job - mainly as until I applied for the job I had never really given progressing to anything beyond Prod Op much thought, and have been happy to just 'clock in and do the job'.
    The exception to this being the application for TC in Protein/Sauce, during the time I was still training on CIP & Cooking.

    To be honest, the role isn't exactly what I expected it to be in terms of additional work load (e.g. action logs) and the extra focus brought upon me from management. This doesn't mean I expected it to be easy, but there are aspects of the job that aren't 'me', and I find it difficult to always takes these parts/responsibilities seriously, such as keeping on top of KPI's.
    I know you have observed the inconsistent 'lurching' of my performance during my time as a TC, and it is this as well that has had me questioning if this is the right job for at this time (if ever). On top of that Iím not totally sure my motivations for applying were correct, as I was mainly seeing the hourly rate and not much else.

    I want to stress that this doesn't reflect on the High Risk area or the people involved/working within it, and I am sure that this decision would be arrived at regardless of what part of the factory I worked in. Though I believe it is possible that High Risk may have more pressure than other areas and this could be a minor contributing factor, but a lot of this stems from me personally and how I feel I have performed in the role to date.

    I am happy to 'stand in' for a TC as/when/if required so that the experience and training gained over the last year isn't wasted, I am also happy to continue to come in early to help with setting up lines

    I would like to thank you for the opportunity to try my hand at being a Team Coordinator within High Risk, and the business as a whole, and regret that it hasn't worked out.


    this does mean that holiday time is now easier to get as i can be replaced by agency, pretty much, so if anyone got any random gigs you wanna chuck my way

    Unsure of what your job involves. Sounds some what like factory work though.

    The letter seemed to be professional in more then one way. Your stepping down, but at the same time your there when you are needed.

    On top of that Iím not totally sure my motivations for applying were correct, as I was mainly seeing the hourly rate and not much else.

    this was the actual letter i wrote... hence the title... the actual face to face conversation was much less professional, lol.
