I have resigned giving one month full notice period. I'm in a situation which seems to be unsolvable.

Thank you all for your help and guidance it would have been much more difficult with out you in the past 7 months in the food safety field.

Dear MOM,

Can only repeat the regrets of previous posts and wish you the very best of luck in the future.

Please don’t forget that any kinds of off-topic questions can always be posted in the Chat forum.
(80% of the posts for a Senior Certificate already :smile: ).

Thanks Again / Charles.C

Actually, I'm quite happy doing what I do. Of course I get frustrated every now and then, but that’s normal. It’s just that the management, the Quality Manager, and line leaders don’t play their part. The management should provide adequate resources for the tasks they hand out, or at least send us to basic food safety trainings.

Not having management buy-in and committment to food safety and quality is frustrating. A lot of people on this forum have experienced it to some degree at some point in their careers. I wish you all the best in your new endeavors.

Sincerely.

It's sad to leave for that reason IMO. I think all professions face their issues with lack of resource and some companies more than others. I had a moment where I almost left a few years back but thought about it, saw how many jobs there were in Technical and stuck with it.

Every job is challenging or else you wouldn't get paid!

MOM whilst being a member here you've been a credit to yourself and to the forum. You are a forum administrators dream, meaning you ask lots of questions and are thankful and courteous to those that help you. It’s clear you have a thirst for knowledge and to improve yourself and the business you work for. If they do not share your values then you are better off somewhere else.

Best wishes and good luck in whatever you do.
Sellfishly I hope you stay in the field of food safety.

Regards,
Simon

mind over matter,

I know how your situation feels as I am in something similar where my job feels like a joke and I am considering the same action you have taken.
Best of luck for the future Posted Image.
