It was my first ever official job after graduating. This guy hired me as a designer for his newly created acrylic and sticker cutting business. By new I mean really brand new…the office were still being built by the time I start my first day and I had to design their logo right there.
Client: Your job will be to design promotion stuff and prep clients’ designs from file to production.
After the cutting machine came and was all set up, he told me that my job ALSO includes being the customer service, cashier, machine operator and the one who goes to clients’ place to apply the product.
Me: That’s a lot of stuff to do. I don’t think I’ll be able to handle all that.
Client: It’s in your job description.
I quit on my 4th day after he tried to make me operate a dangerous contraption to fold acrylic using heated metal and he dared to scold me.
Client: You’re giving up so easily! You have no ambition to succeed.
Stayed just for a couple of days to show the new guy where the files are and took off never to return.
Client: Just stay for another month.
