How much is the pay cut and how long have you joined your current firm? You mention there is work life balance, what about your previous job? And how old are you now? If in your 20s, just change lor since you are still young...

From what you describe, it seems that you portrayed a negative image to them

In this bad economy, I believe most of us are not paid extra money to do tasks outside our scope of work. I believe that there some ppl out there doing 2 person job scope for a pay cheque.

The mentality of sticking to a definite job scope only exist in jobs 20 years ago.

No offence to you, the above is just my own opinion.
I am the original poster.

It is not about one person do x number of people job. In fact, I have been doing more than just my own job scope and also helping to cover my other colleagues of they are on MC or on leave.

Yes, I did try to view it as a positive growth kind of thing but prior to that, no proper handover or closed door discussion for handover. The handover thing was communicated via emails. No face to face handover procedure. This unprofessional way of managing has kind of ticked me off already but I still tried my best to carry out using my limited knowledge.

My negative impression given to them was that I do not want to obey the management instruction.

Prior to that, before the qualified hr manager was being made redundant, I was given positive review by the management.

I did not regret leaving that damn company.

I am the original poster. I quitted without a job cos I was asked to resign when my ex company shifted to a new office.

The management was trying to save cost even if it was trying hard not to make it obvious.

I knew it cos I was assigned to do the job of a hr manager when I was just a support staff. A lot of funny duties assigned to me and my gut is telling me something is off.

When the management did unwillingly hire a real hr manager, somehow, the duties were still sticking with me and when I showed my unwillingness to do a job that was outside my work scope with no increase of pay, I was asked to resign.

It is not as simple as you think.

As I was not trained hr personnel and did not have a hr management qualification, I was assigned to take over a hr manager duties after they asked the former hr manager to leave.

I was not willing to be made responsible for something I was not qualified to do so.
It was not fair for me.

I have been jobless for 6 months since and I am 43 years old this year.

High chance they won't arrange new interview for you already due to your own mistake
