Many of you have heard about the Celadon Bankruptcy situation that has affected over 3,000 drivers across the country. The Indianapolis-based company has left thousands of employees jobless right before the holidays, leaving many drivers stranded mid-route.
As more of this scheme gets unraveled, it becomes more obvious that the situation is more convoluted than it once seemed.

I was working for a temp agency on assignment at a hospital. I had been working at the hospital for about 5 months straight. I was working between 10-12 hours a day, 5 or 6 days a week. I was always being praised for my hard work, great attitude, my willingness to help others complete their tasks because I always finished mine early and I was always on time. But the job was very labor intensive & I developed Carpal Tunnel because of the work. (I... see more

I lost my job July 2015 and being over 50 have not been able to find a job since. I’m pretty sure that I was blacklisted by my last employer. My question is this: why when a person is obviously at their lowest with very little money does the bank decide to raise the interest rate on my credit card and lower the credit limit? Even though I’ve never missed a payment or made a payment late Why does my car insurance feel the need to base my car... see more
Are they supposed to ask you why you got fired or let go from your previous job? I hope to the gods they aren’t I’m so nervous
I have bounced around from one assignment to the next hoping that it would be different every time! Each time I’ve worked with these companies I’ve either been laid off or fired. The firing has been unfair in a sense that I’ve had a problem with something or someone and there has been no advocacy. I’ve proven each time that I have skill and education, which most of the time has been more than enough than what an employer can ask for. I’ve been in... see more
I recently landed a management position at a very nice restaurant after 4 months of searching. Its a hidden gem in the downtown area of a small town. The hours were perfect, the pay was average, and I was beginning to make connections with co workers. Recently 2 Managers submitted their resignations after long term employment. A few days after they resigned, I received a voicemail telling me that my position was eliminated and I no longer had a... see more
Okay so I lost my job the end of October. I had gotten a couple of people angry and the manager of the place I worked didn’t like me from the start. In their opinion I shouldn’t have been hired. Instead, those that already worked there should have gotten more hours. So that was strike one against me. The person that should have gotten more hours quit and rumors started flying around that I was the cause of her quitting, when in fact it was... see more
