Bastards wouldn't even give me a reason :mad:

And they had the class to have another employee tell me, not the supervisor or the dept. boss. Bunch of friggin' lowlife scum.

So I'm off to the job fair today, with all the "refugees" :rolleyes:

That's an awful way to treat an employee. Sounds like they are related to the person my wife used to work for. Told her three days before she was supposed to start back to work from being on maternity leave she was putting her on layoff. They knew they were going to do it for quite some time and they could have gone ahead and told her so she could have been looking while she was on the maternity leave.

Damn, that sucks! Thats one of my worst fears. One suggestion, check in at my office, we just got lots of orders, and last I heard they are hiring some temp help. PM me and I will give you the contacts.

Josh,

May I/we ask what you do, and what your current skills are? If you're an IT guy and have certifications of any sort, there is a ton of work out there right now.

Just wondering????

My background is sales, with a lot of customer service/client contact. I've done a bunch of stuff, but no IT.

Sorry to hear that Josh... :(

Keep your head up... and don't get discouraged... This stuff happens... sometimes you may just end up in a better job than the one before!!!
It happened to me!!! and I had moved 1700 miles from my home town and knew NO ONE!!!

3K a year raise for getting laid off... was the bottom line...

You never know!
