This question already has an answer here:
I recently received a verbal documented warning about my poor performance and not meeting the expectations of the role. I've been with the company/role for less than 6 months. This is the first negative feedback I have received in 17 years. The job and company is not what I expected and I know I'm not the not fit for them and them for me. The warning said I would be monitored and coached over the next 30 days and significant improvement would be needed or face further disciplinary actions up to and including termination. Any ideas on how to approach them about severing ties. I wasn't expecting such a harsh review and financially Im not prepared to quit without being able to collect ui. Any suggestions on how to handle this situation and have that conversation... To part ways in a mutual manner?
I'll add some more color to the situation. While I should consider myself fortunate that they did not fire me on the spot my heart is really not in this job and it is obvious to them too. They told me I seem disengaged, lack motivation and questioned if I am happy in my role. They are correct in their assumptions, I am not happy and I really don't see this turning around. They said at I am not performing at the level they expect and they pay me a lot of money. I'm not living up to their expectations. I expressed that the environment is not what I expected either. I was lead to believe I would be working with my boss more closely but I was told I shouldn't expect such hand holding at my level. I understand the right thing to do is to hold on as long as possible but I also don't want to feel like a sitting duck waiting for the tap on the shoulder. Inks really like to know if anyone thinks its better to talk to them about parting ways and how to go about initiating the conversation. I don't want to be perceived as a voluntary quit but how can I approach them about agreeing to let me go and not contest my ui application?
