Background: I was looking for a different job as commuting 2h a day was just to much for me.
I got an offer from another company in my hometown, signed that, resigned my old job.
On the new job I'll earn way less but I don't have to travel to work anymore, fine for me.
Today, first day one the new job: "You're fired, we outsourced your position".
They already arranged for me to work on a new company (the outsourced one). Ironically they operate on the same area where my old job was.
In conclusion I now have a new job with worse payment and the same amount of commuting.
Commuting was the original reason I've quit, a normal 50h week becomes a 62h monster with it.
I have no clue how to handle this. I'm well aware that the new company is doing me a favour by just taking me, I'm aware that hating on the company who fired me is stupid (not their fault and wouldn't help anyways).
I'm also aware that they are allowed by law to do so (best I could get would be 1 week notice).
Commuting is destroing my health. Commuting to the same area of my old job, now with less pay is destroying my morale.
They intend to open an office in my town at a certain point (nobody can guarantee anything).
Going back to my old employee is impossible as everyone is very happy with my successor, I've trained him very well.
I'm not angry, I'm not sad, I'm just looking for some advice as I have no clue how to proceed. This attributes lead to a work day of 12h. In best case and if our public transport has no cancellations as always.
How can I handle this situation? What would be the best way to do? Quit and hoping to find another job?
Many people recommand me not to do so, but I think it looks way better in your CV "couldn't work there because we moved the office" than "quit after 2 months of underperforming"
EDIT: I refused the new opportunity as it would be a bad deal for me and the other employer. I won't be able to reach the goals, mine or theirs with that commute and their additional work shifts. I won't be able to pretend I like the company bcs. of the circumstances.
EDIT2: Had a talk with a lawyer. De facto in Switzerland you are allowed to fire someone without any reason with a notice of one week in the first three months. (Same you as employee can quit with one week notice in the first three months). We would need to prove that they knew beforehand that my job doesn't exists anymore which would be way to complicated to document.
