Thread regarding DST Systems layoffs

How much harder is it to find a job when you don’t have a job?

I really can’t stand mental abuse here anymore and I’d most rather quit tomorrow. I’m still here only because they say it’s much harder to find a job when you don’t have a job.
I’ve never been in that situation so I don’t know, but I’d love to know how much harder is it? This might be an exception, but I have a friend who has quit his job and found a new one in just a few days.

Disagree with the first post. no one gives you a badge of courage for staying or working at a terrible place, actually it can hurt you because staying there may indicate you have no other options nor have the confidence in yourself to move on. The longer you stay in the sewer, the longer it will take to get the smell off.

The second post is true. To truly do an effective search it takes time. Perhaps stay on SSC payroll while you work on your resume and interview while you work from home. Plan ahead, take their money and leave them at the worst possible time with no backup. That is the way to reward them for how they are going to treat you. KC will be closed in less than 3-4 years.

Companies know DST is a horrible place. So its a feather if your cap if you worked there over 1 year. People see it as a badge of courage. It might well help you get the job over other applicants. That said, when I worked at DST I was rarely complimented or promoted by my supervisors - it nice to know the managers of mine still working there are facing a much more difficult job or have even been axed. Its a good feeling to know the Hitlerisk way of treating people as DST is now being placed on the bad supervisors too. The grave train for them has ended! Ha ha!

depends on your point of view. if you are swamped with work, it's hard to spend time looking for new. of course if you are unemployed that pressure to 'just take it' comes into view with a new employer - all depends on your personal financial situation.
