fired and rehired in 30 mins

Friday, June 29, 2012

The company I worked for gave notice last Thursday afternoon that our services were no longer needed.On Friday the 22nd of june 106 workers including myself were jobless. We were called in offices ( escorted by security) one by one and handed the official letters also numbers to call for counselling ( to help with the mental damages). After receiving my letter I was informed that the General Manager wanted to see me. With extra security I went to his office, in a private setting ,I was one of the chosen few to be transferred to another group company.Luckily the transfer was to a company in my home town 10 mins drive compared to the 90 mins arrival time. I accepted the offer. To my jobless co workers my heart pours out to them but only those without a jealous heart still speaks to me. What hurts me the most is those that turned against me are the same ones I went out of my way to pick them up and drive them home knowing that it was a great distance to go to work everyday. Some are trying to sue the company but in a few months we will know the outcome. Not sleeping because I have so many emotions inside me ( which is not helping me stick to my eating plan ). In the end GOD has been with me all the way.

    Hey Beautiful Lady. Your work ethic gave you back the job you earned and deserve. Let the comments flow off you like water. They are just hurting and afraid. emoticon

    I am so glad that you were one of the fortunate to be offered another position. Try not to take the reactions of others who were not selected too personally, they most likely are just projecting their worry about paying the bills onto you. Congrats on your new job and best wishes with maybe starting a walking group at the new place. And as for the diet, when you feel stressed try going for a walk or asking someone you love for a hug instead of turning to food...I struggle with this too, but these are some of the things I have started to do instead of eat.

    A strong ethic and going above and beyond goes a long way. I'm glad you were offered the opportunity for a new position because of it. I am sorry about your fellow co-workers who are envious or jealous of your good fortune. I will pray for them in their time of need.

    Glad God is blessing you with a job.
    Trust in God, he is taking care of you, and those who are jealous should be ignored. The fact you helped co-workers maybe one of the reasons you have a job.

    I am happy you have your job back. However; it is sad that the others are treating you as such. Many many years ago there was a lay off where I had worked. I came to work every day , worked when they ask me to on my vacations, gave a lot of myself. When the lay off came I did not get it. There were workers there longer than I was I was swore at as they were leaving ,not understanding until one boss pulled me aside & told me some of those let go were one's that had habitual tardiness & did not care about there work ethic. I was in my early twenties then about 40 years ago. I am sorry you were treated bad by the very people you helped. Take care
