One woman realised the hard way that you aren’t as important in your job as you think you are, as she revealed that the company she had been with for 10 years locked her out of her laptop just 20 minutes after she resigned!
Sad but True?
An employee who had worked for her company for ten years took to TikTok to share a crucial warning that everyone is replaceable.
She Got Locked Out
Valerie Thompkins (@authorvaleriethompkins) posted a video where she claimed that shortly after handing in her resignation notice, she was locked out of her laptop!
A Lack of Respect?
“I was at my job for almost 10 years,” she explained.
Feeling Like Just a Number
“When I put my two weeks in, I was locked out of my laptop 20 minutes later,” she wrote.
“You are just a number to your employer. Everyone is replaceable.”
Under-Appreciated at Work
She suggested that companies don’t treat employees with the respect they deserve “unless your name is on the building.”
“It’s never that deep,” Valerie added.
Always Put Yourself First
“Take your PTO. Work will always be there,” she says.
The clip received over 2.5 million views, with many sharing their own experiences.
The Harsh Reality From HR
