A woman has issued a warning against searching your name in Google Drive after accidentally uncovering negative feedback from a co-worker who accused her of being ‘really selfish.’
TikTok user Liz Jane, who uses the handle @thelizajane, has gone viral after detailing how she stumbled upon the private notes from her interview while trying to find a document with her name in the title in her company’s cloud-based storage.
‘I got hired, obviously, and it was mostly positive feedback, except for one note from one of my co-workers,’ she explained. ‘It was kind of personal, and it didn’t really have anything to do with the job. So I sat with that and I dwelled on it for a really long time.’

Liz admitted that the negative feedback changed the way she looked at her co-worker, even though he made that comment thinking she would never read it.
‘If you choose to do this, you might not like what you find,’ she said.
The stitched video was a response to user @dandydemon, who encouraged people to search for their names in their companies’ Slack channels.
Liz later dished about her co-worker’s unsavory comments in a follow-up clip after commenters asked for more details.
‘The feedback basically said I was really selfish for only wanting a remote job, and that was probably my only motivation for wanting this particular job, which wasn’t true,’ she recalled.

She explained that she was searching for a document with her name in the title when she accidentally stumbled upon the private interview notes
‘I wanted to work in the tech industry, and I wanted to work in that specific software that they were developing.’
Liz said the job being remote was ‘just like a cherry on top’ because she was burned out and coming from a toxic work environment where she couldn’t leave her desk.
‘I couldn’t even go to the washroom without asking or telling somebody to watch the phones for me,’ she explained. ‘So, yeah, I was psyched that I was able to work from home, have that flexibility, and work in an industry that I really, really wanted to be in.
‘When I look back, I really think it was just because I was so excited that I wasn’t going to be chained to my desk anymore, so I don’t hold it against him or anything. It’s just something that when I first read it, I was like, “Oh my God, am I a really selfish person? Like, am I doing this for the wrong reason?”‘

Liz explained in a third video that she gave her manager a heads up that she had access to that information and other people were likely able to see it too.
‘Honestly, to their credit, they locked it down pretty quickly and restricted access to those documents,’ she said. ‘But based on all of the comments that I got on that video, what that was was not a unique case, and it happens probably way more than we think it does.’

‘I did this to try to find the last report I submitted to verify a detail,’ another added. ‘Found my performance report calling me lazy unmotivated and always tired.’
‘Found an excel spreadsheet of every mistake I had ever made at the job, even the tiniest thing,’ someone else shared. ‘I sent it to myself, then to HR, my boss, and my boss’s boss in a resignation email where I cc’d the girl who made it too.’
