A shocked Woolworths worker has claimed no one said goodbye to her on her last day of work, despite spending all her “teenage years” at the supermarket.
Keeley Pejovic worked for a Woolworths supermarket in Queensland for six years before resigning.
Ms. Pejovic uploaded a video to TikTok on Monday recounting the thankless moment when her services went unnoticed.
She said none of her colleagues or senior managers said goodbye to her when she left.
“I stayed there for six years… that’s a really long time. It literally represents my entire adolescence,” Ms. Pejovic said.
Ms Pejovic (pictured) said she received no thanks or goodbye after recently quitting her job at Woolworths.
“I didn’t get a single thank you or goodbye. Nobody gave a damn.
Ms Pejovic appeared stunned as she relived the brutal experience before admitting she was not surprised by the decision.
“That’s one of the reasons I quit,” she said.
“Nobody cared…nobody cared about me.” I literally existed in my work.
Ms Pejovic then lamented that after six years, staff “don’t care”.
“The managers didn’t say anything…no thanks, no goodbye…nothing,” she said.
She wrote in the video’s captions that she “was literally just another number to them (Woolworths)”.
Sources said Ms Pejovic resigned suddenly and handed in her resignation to the service desk in the form of a note on a Friday afternoon.
However, Ms Pejovic denied this, telling Daily Mail Australia that she handed in her resignation letter on October 29 and had informed her manager of her intentions a week before.
A Woolworths spokesperson said Ms Pejovic resigned “via a note to the service desk” last Friday afternoon and her resignation “was rather sudden”.
Ms Pejovic’s video was flooded with thousands of comments from users claiming to have had similar experiences.
“I, the person who organized all the farewell gifts… left silently on my last shift,” one wrote.
“Just left Coles after 28 years!!! I just got out. They pretend to care. This is not the case. It’s the best decision I’ve ever made,” said another.
“I left my job at Coles after 2 years, (I was) the only person (since (I) started) who didn’t get a single goodbye from anyone…”
One social media user said Ms Pejovic’s experience was “sad”.
Others, however, said they managed to get a good farewell from their employers.
“When I left Coles after 4 (sic) years I received chocolates, flowers and a card…” one user said.
A 2022 Indeed/YouGov Work Happiness Survey found 72% of Australians felt unhappy at work between 2021 and 2022.
The survey results indicate that one in four workers were looking for a new job.
A demanding workload, poor communication, and poor relationships with coworkers and/or managers are the three main reasons that contribute to job dissatisfaction.
