Who /suspicious reasons/ here?

start a job after beating 250+ applicants
get fired within 1 month
only reason given is that I'm supposedly "not the right fit"
had a check-in meeting a week ago where supervisors told me that they'd received nothing but positive feedback about me from other departments

I mean I assume this means I've done something, but they were adamant that there was no triggering event.

I just packed up my stuff and left. Felt pretty good honestly.

Working for other people is the oldest scam in the book.

I got fired almost a month ago from my first job working at a health smoothie place.

It was going fine at first, positive feedback from supervisor and was encouraged to get promoted from team member to "shift lead" in a couple months. But then, after the manager quit the owner decided to promote a guy who had been working there for a couple of months to manager.
The guy was a complete moron, 21 and a hard ass that would follow company procedures incorrectly and talk down to employees. We didn't get a long and the tension between us was evident in how we interacted with each other. I ended up getting fired 7 months into the job by him.
Feels bad because I actually put effort into the job just to be told "I wasn't getting work done". It was a bs excuse to fire me, he just didn't like me. My other co-worker, who I was fond of, was much lazier than me and they praised him.

new boss was a condescending cunt

eventually decide enough is enough
called her a condescending cunt
tells me I'm fired
tell her I've already quit
receive a letter a couple months later explaining that calling her "a fucking cunt" was a serious breach of trust and confidence
write back explain that I had actually called her a "condescending cunt"

I quit my job before almost getting fired. Basically two senile secrataries wouls file 72 complaints a day. So every monthy, our regional manager would fire a few people randomly and then replace our site manager. The new manager would always come in, find out what the last guy was "doing wrong," then find very small nistakes in everybodies work to try and have something to blackmail them with to keep their own job.

People honestly shouldnt be allowed to try at jobs under 10 dollars an hour. Like, the shits so menial and random. I almost got fired for leaving specs on a floor two days in a row, but one of my coworkers would sometimes just sleep, not do any worker and still get approved by the manager even though there was shit on the floor.

Again, at that pay people should just be showing up and doing their jobs, nothing more.

@Fuzzy_Logic
This desu. I've been working a min. wage job for the past year because school troubles, but I've learned it's absolutely garbage how quick management is to take advantage of someone.

You shouldn't even start caring if your job isn't paying more than $10 an hour. It's literally not worth it, because nobody else will care, and if you show concern, management will instantly pin you for everything, because they know you'll bend and fix it to keep your job.

I've helped out a lot at my job, to the point that management has started trying to guilt-trip me for when I decide I don't feel like helping people on my off day because other employees didn't show up or call in. I cannot wait to return to college.

As a very good programmer, I've found it very easy to be fired for stupid reasons.

I worked for one company that was replacing a lot of its systems with Dynamics and had nothing to show for it after two years. We didn't have even a sandbox for development, yet I was accused of not turning in any work assigned to me.

Then I worked for an insurance company with a real basket case of a system but I bit my tongue. I was out for lunch with my recruiter when we stumbled upon where two of the managers were cheating on their spouses. Next thing I know, sorry it's not working out.

After that, I worked for government in a diversity hire position. Only white male in an application development. Yeah. So I had an old woman, an ancient woman, and a durka durka telling me how to do stuff wrong. Literally, it would throw out error messages saying "you can't do action X in context Y" and they would insist otherwise. At one point, I removed my working code and went back to what they told me to do and they pitched a fit when everything stopped working.

They let the durka make all architectural decisions and he would constantly check in code that wouldn't even compile, shutting down the whole team while he dragged his ass posting "plz send me teh codez" on ExpertsExchange. Forget filing a bug report, he just ignored them and then wouldn't understand why work stalled or workarounds were pit in place. No communication at all in that office; management never communicated decisions or accepted input. Project was a year late when I came on board and made almost no progress in 6 months. It was so bad, they hired a company to help with a project I shouldn't even have had to help with bevause it was so Mickey Mouse.

I was waiting for the results of a civil service test when I got surprised because damned if I was going to stay a second longer than I had to.

@Evil_kitten
Man, that third job, I remember one time I was pulled into durka's office to explain a line of code I put in to work around a bug. There was a bug where you couldn't update the same object twice because reasons. I filed a bug and it sat for over a month. I filed the bug and the solution but it too sat for very a month.

Well finally, since I was being harassed about deadlines and I couldn't touch his holy framework code, I used a dirty Reflection trick to bypass it at runtime.

He was pissed. I told him I filed two bug reports, one with the solution, and they were ignored. Then he turns his monitor around to me to show me the whopping 10 e-mails he got this week. "Look how busy I am and how much mail I have to deal with!" Nigger, please, I get more than 10 e-mails per hour.

I was a security guard at a zoo. I was on parking lot duty and had closed the lot because it was full, and then as soon as i go to walk away some idiot in some shitty ass mini van with his stupid fucking family drives on the wrong side of the road attempting to go around the gate in an attempt to get in. I told him he had to turn around and go find somewhere else to park, started shouting a bunch of bullshit, explained to him if he had read the many signs we wouldnt be having this conversation right now. Told him to take a hike and he supposedly wrote some shitty letter to the director about me. I thought it had blown over but a few days after that they call me in the middle of my shift and have me write my side of the story, say they are going to suspend me until further notice. Never heard back from that job and everytime i called to ask my status they said they didnt know or screened my calls or acted as if i was some sort of stranger. i even tried to collect my last check and they wouldnt even let me on the property. fortunately that company went bankrupt or some shit. Fuck them. Lesson learned: never EVER trust ANYONE. i was 20 when that happened and im 24 now, and now i know when to threaten litigation.

Never fired, but I was sort of put in a position where I basically had no choice but to quit. Then I wrote a bad review of the business on Google because I was a petty little shit, and...

Actually it'll be funnier if I just greentext it.

"quit" my job
boss was a total cunt
like a real cunty mccuntface
one of those female business owners with a chip on her shoulder always feeling slighted and needing to prove herself as a business woman
anyway...
newly-unemployed, I go home, drink a few beers and watch my stubble grow in
suddenly I've got a bright idea
open up the laptop and navigate to the business' google results
start crafting a really weird, funny, but ultimately negative review of the business
submit that shit
get a phone call an hour later from my former boss
she's pissed
tells me she wants it taken down by the days end or she'll have her lawyer file "paperwork" on me
hangs up on me
wat
I wasn't expecting that
I call an attorney who has done some work for me in the past
he's this wiry little old Jewish man
can tell he's busy but he quickly hears my predicament
"uh...yeah...ok...yeah you still got my email address? ok yeah send me the link and I'll just look it over and we'll go from there."
hang up with him not feeling too much better
send him the link
immediately get a call back
can't make out what he's saying
he's hysterically laughing
"anon, you...hahaha...you keep that review up! bahaha...you hear me? DON'T TAKE IT DOWN! ....crazy fuckin' dick..."
and so I took my lawyer's advice
never got served or anything and it's still there to this day

I considered it, but honestly, it's a small business and I kind of feel bad about it now that I'm a little older, wiser, and more mature (just a little bit more mature).

Actually, I may take it down now that enough time has passed. My lawyer didn't want me taking it down for 2 reasons: First, he loved it and thought it was great. But second, and more importantly, when someone threatens you with litigation the best thing to do is *usually* nothing and to take a wait-and-see approach. Anything done *before* getting served can look suspicious and can actually complicate the case or some shit.

I've actually got to see him sometime this week so I'll ask him if I can take it down now that it's been a couple years. He still talks about it...

Every time I walk in the office he yells, "Stacy!" (That's his paralegal.) "Check our Avvo rating! Quick!" Kek

i quit working my old job before i was almost /fired/

work in retro fitness as a "floortech" a stupid title for a person who just janitor work
the guy who works after me complains to the retard boss that i'm leaving weights around and dont pick them up before i leave
i worked the rush hour from 5-11PM
people use stuff and dont put it back
leave stuff lying around
i can't be every where at once
also when its rush hour i can't do nothing because its crowded
sometimes i would stand around and talk to people
manager did not like it.
calls me into the office and tells me the guy after is complaining about me leaving a mess when its actually the customers and that he is not paying to to hangout and will fire me if he tells me again
think about it over the weekend and just tell them i quit, i lied about having another job.

fuck that job. its degrading. retard manager got relocated to another gym to work there within my last 2 weeks. its a wage cuck job and they wanted me to work like if i was getting paid more. i went a month without work but thank god i'm working again.

I quit before getting fired.

Genuinely awful job. Worst job I've ever had, actually.

Used to work at Albertsons
run down grocery store, but still active
management was very very good, though, and people were genuinely friendly
got breaks on time, full half-hour and full hour breaks, you weren't ever overworked
store closes and we're transferred to different Tom Thumbs

My store is literally the definition of inefficient.
I'm told they need more cashiers, not cart pushers/baggers (clerks)
they schedule me as a clerk all the time anyway, despite me being both before the transfer.
ask to be a cashier more, they get angry at me, tell me 9 times out of 10, I'll be a clerk

Parking lot is downhill, not uphill, so when you bring carts back to the store, they can break off
speed bumps around the entrance

When you're a clerk, you're literally the only clerk on duty until the next one shows up, then you leave
AKA you have to do all the bagging, all the carry outs, all the cart wrangling, all the floor sweep punch-ins (twice hourly), all the bathroom checks

Even if you're scheduled for an hour break, you only get 30 mins
you get your breaks/lunches whenever we're not busy. They don't schedule people to come and go at specific intervals
they got mad at me for asking when my lunch was for the day, as it wasn't set in stone.

if you were the closing clerk, since one of the grocery managers quit, you had to 'conditon' all the frozen aisles in the store
the food falls on you because it never sits right, and it takes a good 45 minutes
all the while having to mop the bathrooms, literally clean the bathrooms with chemicals, do all the trash, take in all the carts, and do all the returns.

1/2

Emberburn
Emberburn

@TreeEater
The bagging set up was probably the worst.

Albertsons was like 30 years old before getting closed
had buttons you pressed with your hip for the cashier and baggers
had a round turn table between the bagger and cashier to maximize placement of groceries
cashier had a bag tray right next to their register so they could bag very easily

Tom Thumb on the other hand
you had to dig for an on/off switch behind the bag trays
the bag trays were facing to your right and left, not towards you
the cashier's bags were off to the side, making them walk there and walk back
they also have a switch
no turn table, just a narrow conveyor belt that dumps everything
no scan guns
no scan guns
no scan guns
no scan guns

Even though I'd do my job, they still chewed me out all the time. Specifically me. Always me. There were returns left, the aisles weren't perfect, I needed to stop bagging and get carts, I needed to do this and that. I was 3-5 minutes late. Got chewed out for that.

For instance, I'd condition the frozen aisles, and have two days off, and when I came back, the manger wanted to talk to me about not doing a good job yesterday even though I didn't work.

I knew the cashiering system better than they did and when I was a cashier there, I made my lines move the fastest, yet I was clerk.

Cherry on top - I quit abruptly, and they deleted my employee account immediately after, which didn't allow my last direct deposit paycheck to go through. I need to call them tomorrow.

TurtleCat

@Booteefool
I hear that.

I think the most openly stupid part of that particular job was all of the crying how there just wasn't enough time for anything. I mean, I'd have the week's work done by the middle of the day Monday, unless it was un-re-un-re-un-redoing previous work, in which case I was done even sooner. That's not as impressive at it sounds; it's like a healthy person winning a race at the Special Olympics.

I can't tell you how many times they would waste 100 hours 1 at a time because taking 2 hours together to really solve a problem was just too much time.

I don't know if it counts as being fired, but the last two companies I've worked for have been acquired by larger companies.

"Don't worry guys, we're not planning on making any staffing changes. We're going to merge everyone together into one big team!"
2 weeks later everyone from the original company has been let go

Didn't even get a severance package. Assholes.

need help on job sites
put out ad in my neighborhood
woman emails me saying her son just graduated college and is looking for work
call him for phone interview
he does well over the phone

"okay cool you're hired"

see him on first day of job
overweight, glasses
literally tumblr the person
mentions to me that he got an English degree and is seeking a masters in poetry
says terms in conversation like "body shaming"
I asked him what his parents thought him seeking a masters degree in poetry, and he said they supported it

So, the work...

I gave him about 3 months
he got tired easily, like was clearly flustered after working for a couple hours
his work had mistakes 60% of the time, despite me repeatedly showing him how to properly do the job
just generally looked like he didn't want to be there

So I fired him. The pay was $15/hr and work days were usually 6 - 8 hours long, with a lunch break. What gives?

bit of typing as well, overall chill as fuck job
be doing this a year and a half
one day some public servant executive comes in
"hey user can i get a copy of x courtroom on y date burned onto a CD"
"no worries" - burn CD and give it to him

a week passes

one of the sheriffbros at court comes in recording room one day
him: "hey user just wondering... did you record x courtroom on y date?"
me: "uh yeah i did, how come?"
him: "i was having a private conversation in that courtroom, nobody got a copy of that did they?"
me: "uh yeah i burned a copy that for joe bloggs"
it suddenly clicks in both mine and sheriffbro's mind
this executive guy ordered a copy of the CD just to eavesdrop on sheriffbro
him: "leave it with me user, you did nothing wrong. i'll report this myself."

2 weeks passes

one day get called into some kind of investigation
they start interrogating me for an hour and a half
"why did you tell sheriffbro about the CD... don't you know that's a breach of confidentiality?"
me: "what about the guy that used recording equipment to eavesdrop on people... isn't that the part you should be worried about?"
"no user, he's got the authority to do that. but you breached confidentiality by turning him in."

turned out executive guy was my boss's boss
executiveguy has the power to rip up our company's $5m contract with the courts
he made one phone call and they fired me instantly

get hired by a company- Clearstream Energy Services- i dont give a fuck, ya im giving out their name
am slightly afraid of heights, okay in JLG, baskets, scaffolds, but i wont go out on an ibeam 5+ feet outside of a mod wth both arms out to my sides to balance myself like a tight rope walker to get a job done

OHS regulations state that if a worker is uncomftorble with work (ie, a fear) then the company should to the best of its ability find other work- on the ground, on scaffolding, in vessels, in confined spaces which im fine with

when i get to the job site there was already an accident- hammer fell 5 stories and crushed someones shoulder
Foreman- Paul is screaming/barking orders as id expect in a situation like this
except its not related to the guy screaming on the ground with the mince meat shoulder
no, its to the other workers to get the site tip top shape so OHS doesnt find anything, after 5 minutes he then turns his attention to the now flailing guy on the ground

few days later, let Paul know about my fear, het lets me know with a smile that hes a good guy, and theres nothing to worry about
he then proceeds to make me work a week on top of a heat exchange tower without railings; and starts bitching when i ask for ATLEAST a harness so i dont fall to my death

tell the construction manager this
he puffs out his chest, and states: "well i guess you dont work here anymore then"

@Evilember
Had a beer with sheriffbro afterwards. Turned out this executive guy had been trying to get him fired for over 5 years and I just got caught in the middle of it.

Executive guy supposedly planted his own sheriffs in the sheriff's office to create hostility so he could justify privatizing the whole thing. He had a mate ready to take over the contract and the quicker it happened the quicker he'd get a kickback (this is all corrupt as fuck naturally).

So the meeting that day was between one of executiveguy's planted people and sheriffbro. They even set up the meeting to take place specifically in court 4 because it was the only one where the mics can't be switched off.

Sheriffbro had hit the switch turning the mics off, not realizing that was the only courtroom where that switch wasn't working. They had this shit planned out for weeks. They just weren't counting on sheriffbro finding out and then asking me about it.

Don't know what they said in the recording, never listened to it. Couldn't give a fuck frankly. Thought about complaining to some ombudsman or something about the way I got fired but decided fuck it. Moved on and got a new job.

Never working anywhere near public servants again.

I work as a janitor/cook for a burger flipping institute. I might get fired one day even though I literally do my work better than everyone there because my boss is bitter and holds a grudge against me cause I fought her all the way to HR about how her shitty attitude is bad for the workplace and that she was retaliating against me for filing a complaint against her brown nosing right hand that I had an affair with. She doesn't know I had an affair with her because she's married and I told her I'd keep it between us but she was being a real bitch after I told her I didn't want to anymore.

It's probably stupid and a waste of time but I don't like letting people walk all over me and do what they please but any time I'm talking to my coworkers she's right there in my face asking why I'm not working even though I am and better than she ever does. She also is always looking for ways to tell me I'm doing a bad job but can't because I do all my work but one of these days I feel like she's going to do it.

I asked him what his parents thought him seeking a masters degree in poetry, and he said they supported it

Holy shit my sides! I was an English major myself, but that's because I wanted to be an English TEACHER. (And I am an English teacher now, so I guess it worked out.)

I was always in English classes with these loopy fucking pseudo-intellectuals who sincerely, genuinely believed that they would all become famous writers. It was sad and pathetic.

If you're an English major, you've basically got 2 "good" options: 1.) Education, like I did. 2.) Law school (knowing how to read and write well is indispensable to law school students and lawyers).

Getting one's masters in POETRY? That's just full fucking retard, full steam ahead!

I was actually going to suggest that you look into finding work at some little family practice or something.

If I weren't a teacher, I'd want to do that, honestly. I just love being around lawyers; they've got this air of confidence and some of the smartest people I've ever met in my life have been lawyers.

I actually considered law school for a long time and *almost* pulled the trigger. It just didn't make sense. I think I'm smart enough to be a lawyerfag, but I'm not sure I have the stomach for it (I'm a pretty anxious guy), and I already had my English degree with teaching certification so I figured that I'd forego the additional 100k in law school and just put my teaching degree to work.

Anyway...

tl;dr I'd try to find work in a law office if I weren't teaching

I was a male children's librarian. Yes, we once existed, and not all of us are pervs. I served in a "fire-at-will" state under three SJW directors in a row. The first one was the spitting image of Big Red, but she was open-minded to me as an individual and fair. Her replacement was a complete sociopath and a wiccan. Before I was fully aware of how serious she was, I joked that she was a "witch" to her face. That was my end. The third director gave me even less concrete reasons for my firing, so I'm still trying to figure out if I mansplained a little too much. I'm finished with the library world. Actually, I'm starting a business this year. From now on, I will only answer to customers.

Never fired, quit once. Father taught me to take no shit from anybody.

shitty job, called in day to day for random number of hours
1 hour 15 minutes at shortest, 18 hours at longest
often called in to cover for people who called out sick last minute, was often, "come as soon as you can," deal where they wanted me to scramble immediately
happens frequently, maybe a quarter of my days worked
one day am really sick
was hoping to be better by morning but it only got worse, needed to see doctor pronto
was scheduled to work that day
call in sick as early as possible that day, several hours in advance
keep in mind I know for a fact people call in sick all the time
woman gives me grief, says she would have to "seriously consider whether I could continue working for them or not"
oh bitch nah, you did not
say, "then I quit," and hang up
ignore all their calls henceforth

Fun fact: it was a medical service org and I know for a fact many of the workers there and the admin were guilty of various negligence or illegalities. Literal jew admin tried to do all sorts of illegal shit to cut costs, the head nurses would tell me to ignore his orders, it was like a battlefield of incompetence and patient abuse. I didn't report it because the patients and their families were shitstains and deserved it. (I never committed neglect/abuse, but hey you want to hire shit workers and treat them like crap, don't be surprised when they do.)

Get a job in a local deli
About 5 of my friends my age work there, fun time, actually enjoyed work, time went by fast too
Year passes,
People leave, they get much stricter on the rules, Fat, ugly, middle aged women causing drama and spreading rumors
Day time crew became Toxic, Night time crew always getting the blame for everything
Main Deli Manager was the another, middle aged, obese woman who had obvious favorites; like I had peach fuzz and they tried making me wear a beard guard, while two guys in the morning crew had a goatee and another with a lumberjack tier beard.(Seriously a beard guard doesn't stop anything)
Started separating my friends and I on the schedule so we worked apart because we "slack when together" when we actually got shit done better than the morning crew ever did.
One day at work, fat ass manager is there, starts getting in my face again about a beard guard, got fed up and asked her why Morning Coworker doesn't wear a guard but my peach fuzz has too, instead of answering, she immediately calls over said guy and says "Anon says you never wear a beard guard!"
He starts getting in my face too
After 3 1/2 years of this shit, I snap, and go off on the fat bitch, telling her every detail I think about her.
Called up to HR an hour later
Suspended pending termination
Walk out feeling good

While I didn't want my job back I did go to unemployment , said they wouldn't because I was fired, went to the "union" (lol no) I was a part of and asked, they said I could have gotten the manager fired , mind you this bitch did shit like leave nasty notes, harassed people, was manipulative and overall an awful person.

I wake up the other clients, so we can all get into a van, and I can drive my first client to school (I'm the only staff working, and I can't leave clients unattended).
I drop off my client and drive everyone back
I get a call from the school saying I have to pick up my client because there is no school today.
Fuck this. Why didn't my super leave a note that his Spring Break starts on a Thursday?
I go to pick him up
I'm placed under investigation for leaving my client unattended (the way I was trained and instructed to do when dropping him off at school)
I remember that I just became eligible for 401k matching
The assholes decided they wanted to find an excuse to kick me out and avoid a goddamn 3% match.
I'm technically still working for them and waiting for investigation results.

I'm jealous, actually. It sounds like getting fired can be fun. I've never been fired before.

I had this crazy idea one time that I hadn't learned enough about humility because I'm so white and upper-middle class and I've never really worked a job that wasn't "white collar," so I decided to go out looking for the scuzziest most awful job I could find on short notice and work it all summer long.

It turns out that the scuzziest most awful job one can find on short notice around here is washing dishes at a little shit-bucket dive of a seafood restaurant.

I worked my nipples off and went home smelling like death every fucking night. The boss was this enormous douchebag who I rarely ever saw. I'd ask for a night off and he'd tell me that he would try making a few phone calls. Of course he never would, but he'd tell me at the last second "oh yeah I couldn't find coverage for you so I'll see you tomorrow." Uh... thanks?

That shit didn't bother me though. Fuck it. I was there to learn some humility, and this was it. So I continued working.

The restaurant would close at 10 or whatever but of course we had a stack of dishes to wash and the floors to scrub. It took no less than 2 hours and the fucking dickhead chef would come in every 10 minutes from the bar asking us if we were done yet because he wanted to go home. That shit pissed me off but I sucked it up: humility.

Then one night the prep-chef who was in all likelihood an illegal immigrant started yelling at me for getting a little water on the floor. (Hello? I'm a dish-washer?) Said some disrespectful shit to me so I told him to go fuck himself. That's when he grabbed me by my collar and threw me up against the dishwasher.

The rest of the kitchen staff broke us up but that was the last straw. I went to my boss and told him what a fucking dick José was. He just laughed and was like "Well, that's José." That's José? Are you serious?

Told him that I quit and then sued him in small claims for 2 weeks pay.

iluvmen
iluvmen

@Harmless_Venom
And before anyone asks, yes, I won that suit. (So much for humility I guess!)

His lawyer called me and offered me like, $75. I laughed, told him no, asked him if he had a copy of the police report in which José admitted to laying hands on me, and told him I'd fax it to him.

I get a call back a week later from this attorney: $100 and that's the best he can do. I've had enough. The summer is almost over and I've got bills to pay, bitch.

I remind him of the numerous OSHA violations, and I tell him, quote: "I'll just amend this suit and move it out of small claims, maybe add a couple of zeroes at the end of my number. I'll subpoena each and every one of your client's employees and we'll shut that restaurant down for a day while we hash this thing out."

He told me that they felt "bullied" by me and they weren't going to settle with me. He hung up on me, pissed, but called me back 2 days later. I was in class but the voicemail was simply: "It's attorney so-and-so: come pick up your check." *click*

So yeah, I didn't learn much about humility I guess. But I *did* basically extort my boss AND his stupid ass attorney. Kek

9th June. Manager 'investigates me'
Knowing how company policy works and what I did wrong admit to it but blame it on training
Week holiday was next week anyways
Get suspended full pay
In the disciplinary hearing blame the manager and confess to all his wrong doings
Then say I quit.

So for 8 days worked in June my 28th pay check was 900£ that's only 120 short of my contract pay thanks to knowing the system

Better still I managed to get my manager fired and I technically quit
Been offered lots of shitty jobs but holding out for one I actually want.

Feels good having pretty much a month off with pay and getting revenge

And because I'm out of that shit hole I'm more inclined to actually look for a better job

my learned my lesson with that from my old job. after hurricane sandy the owners from my old job sold their business and within a couple of months a new owner came along. within the time of the new owner he was not happy with the way things were running. the retard manager wanted to run a business on goodwills and charity and the owner wasn't making any money. so the owner called over some big shot to help him out with the business and gave him part ownership. so the new owner started changing things to the way they should be which i was impressed by. a lot of the old people started leaving cause they couldn't get away with the things they did before. the new owner also started to bring in his people. over time more of his people came and more of the old people left/ got fired. before i knew it just about all the old timers were gone even the manager too. new owner had all of his people working there. the new manager which was the new owners friend really started to roll the ball on getting rid of the few old timers left. he wanted to fire me but could not because of the union. instead he gave me 2 write ups over something stupid. i knew my time was going to come and it did. i was having problems with other workers there too. fucked up and jealous people who i hated. i could not take it no more so i quit. i wouldn't be surprised if the new manager told the that person i quit because of to give me a hard time just to get me to leave

Yeah I was kind of a dick, to be honest. Could have just taken it on the chin like a man and walked away, but a friend of mine whose father is a lawyer recommended that I do it.

It's something that I look back on with a sort of pride but with a tiny bit of facepalm.

My friends thought it was great and still talk about it. "Remember you sued...?" "Yeah I remember. I was kind of a douchebag." Lol

But the truth is that while the job may not have taught me humility, it might have taught me something even more important: to advocate for myself. There's humility, and then there's just outright being treated like shit. I found where that threshold lies.

Earlier someone stole a deposit from the safe that wouldn't lock and I didn't notice for whatever reason. I didn't get in trouble for that, but I could tell they were trying to find any reason to fire me. I was suddenly getting visits from another GM frequently that was criticizing my store. Meanwhile, hers was total shit. At least mine had a working cooler and freezer and was clean. They finally found a reason and she along with another manager came and fired me. I was highly upset, but kept my composure.
The next morning I got up at 10 and realized I didn't have to get up at 6 AM 6 days a week. I was happy as shit. When I filed my unemployment and got $260 a week. I took a 3 month vacation on their dime.

How old are you? Sounds like you are a 19-22 immature.

No matter what, take pride in your work. Even if your job is shitty as hell. Taking pride in everything that you do (and not just picking important things) will really help you out in life.

I was working at a grocery store where me and this one guy had to do menial tasks. He half assed his part and when I called him out, he said "it's just a stupid task" and when I tried to explain to him the concept of taking pride in his work, it was foreign to him. Well he dropped out of community college and I went on to be a successful engineer. I think he's still at the grocery store.

Whether it's a small homework assignment or a big one, always take pride in your work. Or else you are a nigger

Just be willing to start from the bottom. Get your foot in the door and start getting experience. I started off as a bussboy working weekends while in college. I paid attention to how the place was run and worked hard. One day they were short staffed and needed another server, and I stepped up. I started taking tables and making like double the money. After that I learned about operations, always asking my boss what he was doing and why. I watched bartenders make drinks and on slow days, asked to try my hand at bartending. It's really just an accumulation of knowledge and experience, like any other profession. The best you can do is walk into a restaurant you like and ask for a job, and hope you have a cool boss who will mentor you.

I've never been fired from a job, but I have quit a lot of jobs for a better one across several industries and in several countries.

Here's a story from my days of teaching English

take a job teaching in Ukraine
arrive and learn they want me to basically start work at 07:00 and end at 22:00 everyday with a several hour break in between
end up using that several hour break to commute in Kyiv and plan lessons when I get back to the office
don't mind the long hours because expectations are high and professional development is good
absolutely hate my fellow foreign co-workers who were basically the biggest bunch of assholes and lunatics you could ever meet
had no problem with my Ukrainian co-workers as they were perfectly normal people
have one too many arguments with a co-worker who was a single 45 year old bitchy Scottish woman who had corn yellow teeth and a personality which curdled milk
book a plane ticket home, pack my bags, and leave Ukraine without telling anyone

And that was the end of my career teaching English abroad. Seriously, fuck exp-pat teachers. There are a few good ones out there, but 95% of them are the most miserable bunch of fucks you'll ever meet.

my father has had a shit attitude for the last 2 months,constantly telling me i deceived him (he is right) and that i am useless.
yeah sure i was a fucking moron ,but he cant talk like a fucking civilized human,he just insults me now,and condemns me to a shitty life.

today i hope to believe,as a tool to educate me,but i fear because he has no hope for me.

he found a job for me working in a field with a fucking literal hoe (we live in a somewaht rural area,lots of people are farmers) ,alone,under a strong fucking sun ( I am a white AF nerd) to toil for hours cleaning the field of invasive plants.

and i will never again in my life work such a job.
i will fucking study like my fucking life depends on it (it does). and Ace the exams next year.
i fucking swear it.

Lol this was like my past job at Wally World. Fucked around for 2 years while in school. Did homework, ate a shit-ton of ice-cream, did dumb shit with friends. Then management started cleaning house, people started leaving, and I just could'nt give a fuck about my job. Left before they could fire me though. It's depressing as hell shopping there years later and still seeing some of the kids I worked with still there...soon to get there 10 year badge and usually put on a ton of weight.

Biz is full of you collossal boot licking wagie ragie cucks. Just fuck off grandpa it's almost 2017 people don't give a fuck anymore. Fact of the matter is some chink or poo in loo is going to steal your job anyway because of affirmative action and political correctness and you will probably have to train your own replacement.

If you were born in the united states of America and the height of your ambition is to be a "successful engineer" with a "good work ethic" you should be ashamed of yourself. It's because of mediocre people like you who allow themselves to be taken advantage of that the economy is fucked the work place is fucked and we are tired of it and we are tired of you.

Congratulations you are the new serf class bending the knee to your overlords living in constant fear of the day your expenses outweigh your usefulness and you get the axe. Then you bitch and moan and cry because you had work ethic! Like this entitles you to anything whatsoever.

I wanted to do this once but couldn't. The reason being that employees were purposely compensated a week lafter each pay period so that a person couldn't get their check and fuck off wuthout awkwardly coming back for the pay of that week
I put in a formal 2 weeks notice that I could no longer run a cash register. The fucking guy running the place actually pressured me to stay because I was the only kid in the place who wasn't pot-muching trash.

Anyone else ever been fired due to their weight?

Used to work at Pizza Hut as a delivery driver
Pretty heft
About 400lbs? Maybe a little less
Sometimes had to deliver to difficult places
Had 4 complaints all relating due to my weight and got fired

1st complaint- Went to apartment building, elevator was broken so had to use the staircase. After 10 floors sweat had dripped from my hands/forehead and gone through the pizza box into the pizza, so they asked for a refund

2nd complaint- Delivered pizza to an elderly couple. Their door was made of wood and I fell through it

3rd complaint- Some fucking college kids told my manager I took a bite out of their pizza and it arrived part eaten. Manager believed them

4th complaint- The one that got me fired- I tried to be cheerful and say 'time for pizza' when I was delivering but I accidentally said it like a question and the person ordering thought I was demanding a slice of their pizza and complained, manager believed them

Fucking sucks. Not my fault they gave me free pizza.

What I don't get is how they're perfectly OK with missed deadlines, constant problems, no documentation, etc but having a solution is somehow the height of arrogance and eternally unforgivable.

It burns me even more in the public sector because we're already under a microscope. Not even my salary being easily available online dissuades the argument that we'really overpaid. And certainly nobody puts two and two together that any "savings" from privatization will come from importing shitskins.

How you can be so failed at your job and not fear being shown the door is a total mystery to me. But then it never occurred to them it might be a bad idea to send pornographic e-mails at work either.

And let's be honest here, work with enough people and patterns emerge. They will say things to save face and are reluctant to share information even amongst themselves. Because of this, they produce pure chaos. Nothing matches the spec, logs are missing or scattered all over, stuff slips into production without testing, etc.

Likewise, women in this field often have an inferiority complex. They won't ask men for help, don't tolerate alternative input, and never admit a mistake. Everyone is their enemy because misogyny. They will willfully drive the ship into a iceberg, then play the damsel in distress expecting to be saved.

Sort of same thing happened with me when i was younger.
fucked up school (wasn't completely my fault, i was bullied on the daily basis, so just skipped a lot of class)
finished trade school
got in a ball-breaking job with a lot of unpaid overtime work and shitty working conditions
"fuck that i'm going to college"
got a new white-collar job, finished college whilst working
several years later ragequit due to getting into an argument with one of bosses (sort of last straw, a lot of shit accumulated over the years)
unemployed since then, wasn't even looking for a job work properly

So it was only a temporary fix. I guess i'll off myself once my savings dry up. No point in getting another job, it will be more of the same again.

I don't like managing people (which was one of the reasons why i quit the previous job).

I'm literally a shut-in recluse who doesn't trust people and spends all his free time in front of a computer (earlier it was vidya, now just internet). Not sure how i would have been able to manage employees and find clients.
I guess i could have started as an independent contractor, working alone. Still, I'd need an assistant, it's next to impossible to properly do certain things without any assistance sometimes.

Another problem with being an independent contractor is lack of clients and their low purchasing power. And people with money already have established necessary contacts with service providers, rich people are usually well-connected.

The employer can fight an unemployment claim. This is because an employer that doesn't have its act together and fires a lot of people puts more of a burden on the system and can have its tax rate raised in response. Fortunately, when an employer (say D&H Distributing) puts themselves in that situation, their credibility sinks such that each protest carries less and less weight.

Worked for a Maximum Security Prison for 5 years while in college. End up becoming a Sergeant while there, and getting promoted to a Contraband Interdiction Sergeant. Which is basically a politically correct term for a Prison Swat team we had. The purpouse of CIT was to obtain illegal contraband namely Cell Phones, Drugs, and fire/gather intelligence on compromised officers that were involved. Did so good, they had me and a few of my team members transferred to another unit with a large contraband problem. Prison was in a large city of the state, and had a bunch of dindu officers. Got a bunch fired, a bunch Federally indicted, and had lots of uses of force.. basically whooped inmate ass and cleaned up in the prison.

Locking up an inmate one day.. he and I were in Solitary by ourselves. I have a habit of removing the hand restraints before they go in the cell as it is akward to do so, once they are in. This violates policy, you have to wait until they secure them in the cell. I remove the hand restraints from the offender and he proceeds to spit in my face. I ended up giving him sixteen stitches total, on 3 separate lacerations on his head. I got fired for excessive use of force, and unjustifiable injuries. Even though spitting in my face warranted a use of force I got carried away with it. All 5 years down the drain, and no more job in the Criminal Justice field. Worked out well though, I make way more money now doing Non Destructive Testing, and invest my money.

Fuck "taking it on the chin" If some cryptokike tries to rip you off shove one hand up his ass, the other down his throat, and you work him like an accordion.

Never been fired, but i guess I could post my /diabolical/ plan for when I get too pissed off to care and get myself fired. But Job description first

Work on a farm doing irrigation though summers to put myself through uni.
Pays $15 dollery doos an hour because i can do almost any job on the farm and I've been there for 5 years or so.
work every day unless shit gets real fucked up or it rains. Life is suffering after a month straight
of 10 hour days, but them hours.
Boss is the owners son, he's a shitbag who only ever works if he can't find a way to weasel out of doing it, and if does have to work he half asses everything whilst expecting everybody else to be perfect.
Mostly tolerable because he lets me manage the rest of the irrigation crew and leaves me to my own devices.
Owner is a true son of Israel and won't spend any money on maintenance, so everything is held together with string and gum, all the equipment would make worksafe shit blood
He also cuts corners everywhere he can, most notably overloading the shit out of delivery trucks, and I'd bet the maintenance on them is questionable too.
If the day comes I just unleash my hate on daddies boy and get canned, There'll just so happen to be a health and safety inspection the next week, followed by a guest appearance from the department of transportation.

It's truly amazing that place hasn't been raped by worksafe, and that the truckers haven't been caught by DOT checkpoints. I regularly drive forklifts and last week I was spraying herbicides, all shit I need a licence too do legally. I did all that shit in shorts and bare feet too. In fact I work almost everyday in bare feet because soggy shoes are the worst, the hobbit life is real.
