I just got fired...
They asked me if I could start coming in at 7am and I explained to them that due to my fiance working late and him being my only ride to work in the morning if I could continue working at 8am and just cut down on my hours and if this was absolutely not possible that I would be in at 7am.

Apparently that was too much for them and they fired me.

Also they said my performance was lackluster

I was supposed to have 7-8 printers to get a days worth of work printed and it did take a couple days to catch on (I only worked 3 days a week).
So...someone never ordered enough ink for all the printers and while I was learning how everything worked I also only had 3 printers to get it done on. How can you say my performance is lackluster when your delivery guy cant handle writing down that we need extra ink???

I guess it is all for the best though since it turned out that I was allergic to the ink and my hands were getting rashes on them and breaking out and burning. I wish I would have had a chance to report that and get worker''s comp.

Ohmygosh. I''m so sorry you''re going through this!! I have a friend with a similar ride type situation with work and I''m afraid the same thing may happen to him. Lots and lots of dust for you to find a new job!

The way the economy is you definitely are not the only one, but I know sometimes it feels like it. It''s amazing how each day I here of more people and jobs that I think would be "secure" are getting fired. It''s absolutely horrible.

Just know we''re all here for you and you''ll get through this and find something better! :)

Aw, I''m sorry Smurfy! That lackluster comment makes me
- like they were just looking for something to say, ya know? I know it''s tough in this economy, but it sounds like getting out of there could be a lucky escape. *DUST* for a new job soon!

Awwww smurfs...
I was just thinking about you last night and wondering how everything was going for you over there because I haven''t seen you around since you started. I''m sorry to hear about that! But, it probably sounds like it''s for the best anyway if they are going to treat you like that.

I hope you find a better job real soon before you get some competition (me) knock on wood.
Things aren''t going the best where I am at right now. The business has asked for voluntary lay-off''s and after they see how many people volunteer, they will then do involuntary lay-offs possibly in March, some in May, and then more in September if things don''t start picking up.
I''m so incredibly worried and frustrated right now with the whole thing. Especially after getting laid off from my last job back in June. I know I''ve only been here since September but you always get that "uh oh, it''s me next cause I''m new" feeling. I guess they are going to go through departments and see who they can get rid of. It''s horrible really. I just hope I can survive. I can only hope I''ll be valuble to them here. Keep your fingers crossed for me!! And I will surely keep mine crossed for you!! It''s such a tough industry to begin with but with the economy on top of it, that isn''t helpful at all.....

Sending you finding a new better job dust!!!!!! **HUGS**

Thank you so much for the wonderful comments

Dreamgirl I hope things work out for you, I know my sister was in the same situation a couple weeks ago and ended up being an involuntary layoff person. They must be offering a good severance package if people are taking the voluntary layoff...

They certainly are but not too many seem to be taking them up on the offer. At least, by word of mouth anyway. I''ll find out in a few weeks.

So sorry Smurf! It sounds like your employers were jerks and would have tried to find something tiny and insignificant to fire you for eventually. At least now you don''t have to deal with ink rashes!

Sorry to hear this. Hopefully something else comes along soon. Do you have any temp agencies out there? It might be fruitful to look into that while you are sending out resumes and everything.
