I'm already thinking of resigning because of lack of skill growth, the working environment and not having a competitive salary. I'm getting really inactive already, getting lates, memos, awols and stuff and I just really want to get out of here. I'm not happy anymore to make it short. I don't care if they don't give me my back pay anymore and I might as well get terminated if they do not accept my resignation as I am still bonded.
I don't know the actual cost of the training because they did not show us any receipts. It was a ONE MONTH IN-HOUSE TRAINING for a THREE-YEAR bond that costs P300,000.00 if we are not able to finish the bond, and as far as I know, it is not pro rated. The training instructors were just employees of the company. They said we'll be having the "certificate" after the bond. We also had a TESDA exam after the training and that also seem suspicious.
My question is, will the company sue me for resigning and not paying that said amount? Because we don't have that much. And isn't that amount questionable because they only choose "not-certified" employees that will be the training instructor? And also, 300K worth for one month training? Because seriously, I can learn better than that from a high-end school without paying that much.
Please do not tell me to just wait for the remaining one point something years because I'm already 99% sure that I will resign and I feel I've already done my part here so I'm asking help from you guys. Both parties don't benefit each other anymore.
Thank you very much to all took time to read and answer!
And may I quote this letter from someone I saw from a web site:
"A career should not feel like a tedious task nor an obligation. Your career should be something that you like doing because it is part of your being.
People's minds change, and along the way, we learn of things that make us happy, or unhappy. Corporations are big, but we are not and should not be corporate slaves. After all, a corporation is made up of people who live and breathe; people who have aspirations and dreams. If a person is not living his dream, it is not just for a company to impose something that will hinder that person from achieving his dream. A big corporation can rely on manpower, while a single person can rely only on himself.
Labor malpractice is common nowadays, and it is hard to eliminate. In the end, this is my life and I'm proud to say I used my right. I hope people will use theirs, too, in order to be happy. Overcoming fear to achieve happiness is a dangerous thing to do, but it is the only way."
