Hi. During most of the last year I was building an app which I thought would be useful. And I ran out of money.
To cover my liabilities I decided to look for a job. And found multiple offers at the same time.
Then I took the best offer - it was a consulting job for an American company. I had to wait a bit to start.
And today was the first day there. I've got rejected during my first day of my new job.
It happened because I challenged their use of so many cloud platforms to do the work and from what I could see there are quite a bit of people who are engaged with that company.
The company handles really really sensitive people data (I didn't get access to it) and I don't know any of its privacy implications.
I had an idea to help. I thought about reducing the amount of cloud platforms that even devs use.
I wrote a message in their channel about the issue (And it looks that the channel had many people there).
I ended up with two middle-size messages because during writing I had more ideas and added them there.
After these messages, almost instantly, I got a message from the business guy that I was interviewing with a few hours ago.
He asked me to remove the messages. So I did. Then he told me that even though they are American company they still must adhere to GDPR and so on.
After two or more messages my company account got disabled. I didn't get any notice, nothing. I got kicked out of the chat's session. I've just got the access to it a couple hours ago.
They have disabled it without any explanation. My corporate email got disabled as well.
So I've found the email of the person who I was contacting last and asked whether they feel the same downtime as I do.
They've replied with the info that they notified the contractor company through which I was affiliated with that my services are not needed.
I have no idea what to do now. I need money and I thought that the job at this company would be great.
But my first effort was put out so harshly and so fast that I don't even know what I want now.
I found this site on youtube and I thought I'd share my story with you. I'm not sure what to do... Probably it's good that they rejected me... But it's still pretty bad.
