I recently took a position and started this new job and the only reason I left my previous employer was because this was supposed to be the promotional opportunity that I was searching for. Unfortunately, things have not gone well at all and within 3 weeks into this company, my boss began saying that "it's feeling like this is not a good fit".
7 weeks in, and they put me on a PIP that claims "Within 1 week, I need to see continued steady improvements on..." and realistically the bullet points are so high-level and not measurable, I feel like they just want to get me out of there because it's been a definite mismatch of what their expectations of the role were and my experience and my expectations of the position were for.
From the many different people I spoke to, everybody has told me they have never heard of a PIP being evaluated within 1 week, it sounds like they have already made their decision of letting me go. Regardless, I am just continuing to working to my best of knowledge and experience, but have accepted the reality that they are going to terminate me for not passing this 1-week PIP.
If that happens, I just want to know that I will still be eligible for receiving unemployment if I have not been able to get through this PIP while I continue my job search?
