This is a post about RBT (rat bastard trainer for those who might not have been here for my early posts) the guy who was my trainer and *choke* would be mentor when I started my job in October. Those 2-3 of you who read my blog then will remember that I wondered what he did all day, and was annoyed that a total slacker like him was so presumptuous as to tell me that I might make him look bad.
So anyway since I've moved jobs (internally) I have little to do with RBT anymore but heard a rumor that he was going to be moving from being an Account Manager to being a Data Processor. This sounded like a demotion to me, instead of being the one in contact with the customer and creating the processing specs for the processors to follow he would be doing the processing? But I figured since he is such a *star* he must have wanted the move.
Well lo and behold today I discovered that it was not a voluntary move! That the powers that be had indeed noticed that RBT was less than industrious. And more importantly that his customers had noticed and COMPLAINED and it was discovered that RBT had let major things fall through the cracks and had not been following up properly on his biggest customer and keeping them happy. Next week another account manager "K" and the VP and a Sr. Manager are all going out to smooth things over with the customer. "K" is very experienced and very thorough, they will have no problems with her.
So the kharma train finally caught up with RBT, and I admit I'm chuckling a bit here just thinking of it. The downside to all this? I sit among the processors so RBT is likely to be looking over my shoulder more often again - but he has no power over me.
