So my husband and I are facing a dilemma with his job. He doesn’t like the ethics of the company he works for and has been trying to get a new job for a while now. The main problem has been with how they treat their employees and how (thing like charging the employee for return shipping of their product if something got shipped out incorrectly, waiting days to restock the bathroom when the TP and soap run out, and other things)
Last week, however, my husband took a call from a customer who was asking for a copy of an invoice they had already paid, but couldn’t find. After he got off the phone he looked up the invoice to fax a copy to the customer but then realized that the customer had sent the merchandise back and the customer was never refunded their money. When he brought it to his boss’s attention, his boss essentially told him to not inform the customer of the mistake, and they would not refund the money unless the customer asked for it.
Now my husband really can’t stand working for people like that any more. His boss seems to have no problem with stealing from his customers. DH really wants to get out of there as soon as possible. If he quits with out another job lined up, we would still have my income, which will be enough to cover our bills, (and maybe daycare for our one son so DH can work full time on a job hunt) but not much more. We have plenty of savings built up, but would rather not dip into it because we are hoping to buy a house in the next year or so.
In your opinions, should he just quit and walk away now, or should he find another job first?
Oh, I guess I should add that DH already feels bad that I have to work full-time to provide our health insurance and can’t be a stay at home mom. He really would hate to make me the sole provider for our family until he gets a new job (which could be quite a while in todays economy)
