I'm not sure that my subject title conveys my feelings on this ,
however I have decided at the age of 69 to retire from my part time employment . This is with a Charity in the retail Sector & I have worked for them for 9years. My Contract is 1 day a week ,where I covered holidays & am basically Assistant Manager in all but title .
Anyway , I decided to put in my notice of retirement this week & after speaking to my Manager the email went off with a leaving date of end of May . Which was not my intention ,I was intending to leave in July . I had checked the notice Period with HR & yes it was 4 weeks .
Now, when I spoke to my Manager she was fine understanding that I wanted to retire & the pressures we were constantly under Managing with no or little help ( we rely on volunteers & have one FT staff member & myself ,this Manager has been in our Shop coming up for a year . I have had 4 different Managers in the 5/6 years at this store ) lone working often, however I feel that she manipulated my leaving date ( just by how the face to face conversation went )
Yesterday ,my day of work , I called the next Manager up the line & advised her that "Actually my intention was to leave in July" had a very brief discussion .The result of which was she would email the Area Manager & whoever else & would get back to me . That call came before the end of the working day & consisted of the briefest of convo's,
" Its already been processed, sorry Im just passing on a message "
Well thank you so much for that I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER NOW .obviously I never said this but this has just left me feeling that ,they have jumped at me leaving & I feel totally undervalued. I am not leaving due to discord but retiring .
I realise also that they have to 'Cover the role I am leaving & advertise & interview'
I did not expect though to be dismissed as if I was of no consequence whatsoever . I also did not intend to mess the "process" by changing my leaving date .
I have now sent an email voicing my disappointment in how I feel I have been dismissed & have rescinded my notice of retirement adding the already given date in July & that I will give the requisite 4 weeks notice to retire in due course .
What are your thoughts on this , am I wrong in feeling undervalued & as if I am being dismissed ? sad
