my friend will surely be very angry at me.....

This old friend of mine was the one who recruited me to this insurance company and she and the rest of his up-line are so excited to have me and also my recruits. But I have lost my interest already since I learned that the company is requiring us to pay certain fees. They are not much really but I do not see any reason why the company should collect those fees from us. I find it obnoxious so I did not go to the exam and when they called me up this morning I said I could not see them today as they want me to go see the supervisor who just arrived from another island. Another thing that also discouraged me is the fact that these people keep on changing dates and time. They could not keep time. One time I was in the middle of doing something very important and I got a call from them asking me if I could join them NOW. What? It is trying to take up a lot of our time---the training, etc. would make us stay in one place for a day and sometimes for two days. Now I think that's too much time expected from us when we do not actually get anything from them yet unless we make a sale. One time they said that they will give orientation to recruits at 3 pm. When we arrived there, they were still having a meeting with another group and so we had to wait and wait. They could not stick to the time they have originally given us. It is just so discouraging that I have decided to discontinue. I know that this frined of mine will be really angry because that means she would again look for more people---she needs 10 recruits in order to qualify for a certain title. Until now I haven't told her that I am quitting.

In this time when everyone is struggling for job, I will not say it is a good decision to quit the exiting job after getting fed up by the wrong time table and something like a little fees (unless you are not paid negotiable salary) She would look for more people, certainly but you must not quit without another job or any other option to earn for paying all the bills and plan for future.

If you are like me you like to know exactly where you stand and not to be messed around, especially when you yourself are reliable, hard working and solid, there is no reason for others to treat you differently, I don't blame you for quitting, I back you 100% and I am damn sure that your friend will NOT be angry at you, how can a true friend be angry? She will understand I am sure, I certainly would if I was the friend, at the end of the day it's YOUR DECISION. You shouldn't do it just to please a friend.

I don't think she should be angry with you, as you were not enclosed the basics about the job properly. If she is, she's probably just using you, and not a good friend. I would not expect anyone to work at a place where they keep on changing dates and forget to mention the fees...

I think that if you'll explain her the situation little by little, she will understand, that's what true freinds are doing. You shouldn't do what you don't like/want especially in a company like this...From what you're saying I don't see any benefit[just fees] and any organization...And if they'll kep doing like this, they'll lose many people, so the company will fall. Explain this to your friend, go with her at a coffe/tea/cake, to be relaxed and be subtile with this subject if this company means very much for her. You cand try to ask her how she manage with the unnexpected programm, or with the fees or another things that you don't like, maybe saying her oppinion, and then saying you, your oppinion, she'll realise that you don't like this company,so when you'll say that you want to quit, she will pe prepared, and maybe..not angry.... Good luck! :)

I think you have made the right decision. These people are not acting professionally or respectfully. That is not good in business. It sounds like a bit of a scam to me. Your friend can be as angry as she likes but the thing is, she did not act responsibly towards you and disclose the whole situation properly before you agreed to sign up. That is just wrong. Who knows what situations would follow that you would not be comfortable with. I think you have made the intelligent choice.
