Talent Selexion (TS) is the place where I work. I’ve completed a year today at Talent Selexion so thought of sharing my experience with you guys. 🙂
I still remember my 1st day at TS I felt like I’ve come to a different planet altogether and people around are aliens 😛
Being from a carefree environment I had suddenly gone to a place having rules, regulations, procedures, systems and God knows what all. When Jesson Sir (my boss) was explaining how they function my head was spinning and I just wanted to get out of that place. I’d thought I’ll never go back but since I have a tendency of not giving up easily I again went to work the 2nd day. Hmmmm 2nd day I tried getting myself into that system. A week passed, yet I was unable to adapt to the rules and system 🙂
Jesson Sir was like a monster, one small mistake and he used to give a full long lecture on rules, regulations, procedures and systems. I just hated him for that. I started calling him GABBAR 🙂 (Jesson Sir, if you are reading this, sorry 🙂 ).
A month passed I still didn’t like TS. Somewhere I knew the problem was not in TS, the actual problem was that I was too attached to my previous organisation. I just didn’t want to accept the fact that now I am a part of TS. I hated everything in TS. I started making mistakes on purpose to irritate Jesson Sir but I always found him extra patient with me.
I was so frustrated that I wanted Jesson Sir himself to throw me out of the organisation. Once I lied and got caught. I felt bad about it and was even a little scared but at the back of my head I thought at least now Jesson Sir will ask me to leave the organisation. It was as if Jesson Sir had made up his mind that no matter what he will not ask me to leave so he just shouted at me and told me don’t repeat it again. However I decided I will resign and I did. May be this was a shock for him but surprisingly he called me and spoke to me politely. He tried to understand what was bothering me, stopped me from leaving.
That day I realised what a big idiot I was. I realised how nice Jesson Sir was. I really started respecting him after that. He made me feel that my presence was important. Then I decided to stay in the organisation. I put my heart and soul in everything that I did and learnt a lot more than I knew. And of course I even adapted to the rules and systems 🙂
Now that I was fine with TS I even got along well with my colleague. We had our own little fights and arguments but never had any grudges held against each other. No matter what happened we had a mutual understanding and worked together. A new colleague joined us and she was a real chatter box. I never mix up with anyone that easily but she got friendly with me herself 😛 It was fun now because earlier it was only me alone who called Sir Gabbar now even my colleagues supported me. Jesson Sir was no longer a monster for me. Neither his shooting hurt me. In fact each time he shouted at any of us we used to laugh it out by saying “Gabbar ne aaj meri class li” 🙂 Everything was perfect we worked, we cracked jokes and laughed. We even used to party at times. Unfortunately due to some misunderstanding one of my colleague had to leave. After some days the other colleague also left. Everything changed in a blink of eye.
After my colleagues left I had a feeling that something bad is gonna happen but I paid least attention to my fears because I thought TS needed me so I kept working. New colleagues joined and somewhere my fears came true. This new person entered and ruined everything. Due to her I even had arguments with Sir. Once again I felt like leaving TS. This time it was my Mommy who told me don’t leave your job because of someone else. I stayed back but during that period unknowingly my colleagues had triggered an incident that I had left behind. All over again the past started playing on my mind. I was so disturbed that was unable to concentrate on my work. I didn’t perform well that time still Jesson Sir was patient and gave me time to over come things. Luckily I went on a short Christmas vacation that time. In the company of friends and family my self confidence was back. I was all set to go back and work at TS. When I went back due to some reason even these colleagues left. To be frank this didn’t affect me at all because they had just spoilt the environment with office politics. However Jesson Sir was upset that again people left. Now I hope whoever new comes in TS may they come with good intentions.
In spite of all finally I completed a year at TS. It’s surprising how I completed a year at a place where I thought I won’t survive even a month. 🙂 TS taught me many things. It mae me more organised. Now I follow the system. I am not that perfect because unintentionally I still make silly mistakes and Jesson Sir patiently corrects them. TS even taught me about two faced people.
Recently there was a Rickshaw strike and I was unable to go to office. Jesson Sir picked me up from home and even dropped me back in the evening. This was really a great gesture because no boss would do so much for an employee
I must say Jesson Sir is the world’s best boss. At times I have told him stuffs that I shouldn’t dare saying as an employee but he has handled it with maturity. He never shouted at me that I am your boss how dare you say this, instead he sits with me and politely clears all my doubts. Not only as a boss but as a human he is a very kind and just person. After my family, I trust and respect him a lot.
Don’t know what’s in-store in the future but I hope I share a good relation at TS. Even if I have to leave TS shall leave on a good note 🙂
