The Shortform

Was your perceived corporate ladder actually a step stool?

Well step up to the real world

This is a small light brown step stool with white dots on the top of the four sided stool. It is sitting on a hardwood floor against a light gray wall. There is a white baseboard at the bottom of the wall. There is also a small unreadable price sticker on the top left of the stool.

The job description described the company as an environment that supports growth and advancement. So, you were under the impression there would be plenty of opportunities for growth and upward mobility with the company.
