Today, after getting my dream job and quitting old one, I was told my position is strictly "experimental" and will only last 2 months. FML

Experimental often becomes permanent if things go well. Just work hard and you may be kept on. Good luck OP.

Sounds like your temporary future boss likes hiding stuff in the fine print. Good luck finding another new job in the next two months.

shouldn't OP have checked this BEFORE quitting their old job? technically it is your responsibility to read all the papers carefully before signing up for anything. If there was nothing written before and this is a new "clause" added by the new boss. Then of course it is wrong, else it is a YDI for not paying attention.

Seems like it came out of nowhere likely cuz they knew it'd be virtually impossible to get someone to accept such a stupid offer.

I'm sorry op. maybe you can get your old job back?

How would that go? "Heyyyy well... You guys remember how I quit? Well.. You know, I take that all back. Sorry... Guys..." Then OPs old boss would just say "Oh damn i thought you'd never see us again! Welcome back buddy!" And OP lives happily ever after.

Idk, depending on the job and the circumstances of how OP left a final impression, they could possibly go back. But obviously if it's some big professional job and/or their 2 week notice was written in feces saying "fuck you", they wouldn't have a shot getting back. Every job I've ever had though I was told that if I ever wanted to go back all I'd have to do was ask. But that was a few retail jobs and fast food- nothing white collar or something of that nature.

If they're not kept on, they have experience and can go elsewhere :)

Oh, yay, so OP can stay on permanently with a boss who withholds critical details. Sounds awesome.

My mother was loaned out by her job to another private company being told it was going to last only a "few months". It's now been two years. "Strictly experimental" doesn't always work the way the company implies. Good luck OP, hopefully this change works out for you.

become an entrepreneur!

does it look like OP is bill gates?

nope Bill Gates fucks other people lives!!

You don't have to be Bill Gates to be an entrepreneur. Plenty of people start their own business after losing their job and it works out for them.

shhh drake. you started from the bottom too

Start selling chocolate bars!

Who ever down voted this must not get the spongebob reference......

Everyone gets the reference.

Well try to impress him. Maybe you'll get to keep your job OP!

I don't wanna be that dick BC I do agree FYL, but don't you think you should have known that before you quit your old job?

Yeah they should have. Their boss didn't tell OP that their job was strictly experimental until they quit their previous job.

Yea that would be why this is an FML. They didn't tell OP

You probably should've looked into that a bit more, if it was actually hidden then I do feel bad. Good luck OP!

Don't they have to tell you that before you start? That doesn't seem legal.

Is that also what your contract says? Because if not, they can't do that

Most states employee 'at will'. They can let you go at any time for anything with as much or as little notice as they choose. Just as you can quit for any reason at any time with as much or as little notice as you choose.

Show how awesome you are, so experimental becomes permanent
