Help me with my resignation letter!

SO I KNOW THIS LETTER IS WAY TO LONG, TO DETAILED AND ALMOST SEEMS LIKE IM BASHING THE COMPANY. I WILL USE HIM AS A REFERENCE FOR FUTURE JOBS. SO WHAT CAN I REMOVE FROM THE LETTER BUT STILL LETTING HIM KNOW IT WAS NOT A GREAT EXPERIENCE. HE IS THE OWNER OF THE COMPANY IF THAT HELPS.



I want to thank you for all that you have done for me these past 2 years that I’ve been working for you. You’ve helped me in situations were I had no were or no one to turn to. I and my family greatly appreciate and respect you for that. Your business side of you I admire and look up too, I hope to one day be as successful as you are.

Unfortunately I don’t feel the same about most of the experiences I’ve had here, insults, disrespectful remarks and comments that have been directed towards me both by management and co-workers in both the warehouse and office. I feel that because I am a quiet guy management took my personality as being unintelligent and slow.

Questioning and making comments about my sexuality, Intelligence, the way I walk or even the clothes I wear are some of the things people have focused and invested their time in. I highly believe in respecting others to receive respect, and I don’t feel like that has been applied on their side. As far as management sharing personal information with other employees is another matter I noticed, there were occasions where I asked for financial assistance and my case was shared with other employees. I would think that’s something to be kept private.

There was many times where I would ask management a question and I would get a rude response or even ignoring me would be the case. When I came across a mistake made by management they would try to turn it on me or they’d say I must be wrong, even focusing only on my work and finding the smallest mistakes just to complain about me, sounds more like payback what’s on their mind. Customers obviously get irritated when they have some one calling them for payment on their past due invoices, they don’t want to look bad in front of their boss therefore they than complaint about me, usually the rep. than will confront me and request for that account to not be called by me anymore, I than will keep track on the account I was asked not to call and will find that nothing has been done to collect.

When I first started working here I was allowed to process online orders, make shipping labels, answer phones, label boxes and do collections, all at the same time. Slowly all tasks have been taken from me due to honest mistakes that can be made by a large sum of work being processed by one rep., honest mistakes than can be easily fixed. I now do collections and it’s not enough work to keep me busy for 8 hours and 5 days, I’ve asked management to give me more task but never herd a response from them.

I don’t want you to think that I’m trying to throw everyone under the bus, there has been a hand full of people that have been respectful and you should be proud of having as employees. I just want you to know exactly were I’m coming from, all the mental distress I go through here and at home due to this hostile environment, its not healthy, its affecting my confidence and self esteem. There have been times where I got home and literally cried. I recently notice that half of them don’t even say hi anymore, it’s very uncomfortable working in this environment. I know there are other co-workers that feel the same way or feel that there’s a preference issue going on here. Ex-employees and current employees have noticed the same thing. One of the employees though I was being pushed and picked on so much she actually thought I would do some outrageous violent act here, and I still have that email. When some one thinks that way of you than that tells you there is something wrong here.

I know it’s an extremely long resignation letter, but I thought you need to know what really goes on in here. And the way employees are being treated by management due to preferring and self status. I greatly appreciate if this letter is kept between employee and CEO. I would like to continue the friendship I have with some employees here. Thus management will just share this information with all the staff.

After much thought, and serious discussions with friends, therapist and family, I have decided to pursue a different career. One month should be enough time to find my replacement and vise versa to find a new employer, also it should be enough time to cover some of the debt I have with you, it might not cover the full amount but I should be able to repay as soon as I get settled in my new job and covered all my bills. Unless of course you’d want me to stay until the debt is paid off I will respect your choice. I wish you and the company continued success, and should you need my assistance in any way, please do not hesitate to let me know.

If you every plan on coming back to this company you can't include any of that. Also future employers can ask to see your resignation letter. When you apply for new jobs I would simply put your reason for leaving as "unprofessional management" and don't explain unless they ask.
