Facility closing

The store I worked for filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy and closed our store 12 hours later . We are being told that we are not entitled to our unused vacation days and pto days . Adding insult to injury we are all commissioned sales and they are not paying us our unproductive rate to help them pack up the store . What are our options ? Thanks for the advise

I need to help her!!

My younger sister has been working at Lowe's for over a year and loved her job but then they laid her off. Is there anyone else that has been laid off? I am not sure what advice to give her. I am a truck driver and we never seem to run out of work. I know she is feeling down and I wish I could help her more. Any ideas???

Hey Caroylyn, I have to say, Heeeey! To you for being a truck driver! Ok, Lowes must be finding themselves with too many…

Is this the same as getting fired??

I was laid off from Lowe's and when I tell people they keep saying sorry you got fired. Is that what they will say when my next job calls my references? Was I fired?!! What's the difference and what do I say during an interview??

How to explain being laid off.

It is nearly a guarantee that during your next interview the employer will ask questions to determine the reasons for ANY amount of time when you weren't employed, and this includes when/if you were laid off.

It’s important to first reassure them that your lay off was in no way a result of your productivity. It's a great idea to also be prepared to explain any circumstances at your organization that caused your layoff.

In the case of Lowe’s it…

What valuable information. Thank you.

Have you ever been laid off?

As many of us have learned, the Lowe’s home improvement store is estimated to lay off thousands of workers from assemblers to janitors.

We here at Jobcase are here to support you!

I think we can all agree that losing your job no matter what the circumstance is a very difficult thing to go through.

If you have a few minutes please comment with some advice about a time where you or someone you know was laid off, or even just say hello to those…

Would you allow your employee got back to futher there education?

I worked as an Executive Admin. to the Plant Director. We were just purchased by our competitor. That was when we were informed it was time to lay-off. I was in the Structure Task Team that were responsible for closing the plant. It was very hard, but the process showed me how to. In regards to telling people who you know for man years, that they are laid off. But I remained strong in the most professional, transparent, efficient, & confidence…

Good for you for staying strong magie martinez

He said I couldn't come back...

Worked for Lowe's for the last 3 years as an assembler. Loved the people and the customers and now my job is just gone. I asked my manager if I could please just come back and work a bit more, but he said it came from corporate and it wasn't up to him. I get it, business is business. He said I couldn't come back no more to do assembly and that's all I know there. I am a single dad and my kids birthday is coming up next month and now I have NO…
