I was laid off from my job of 24 years (literally half my life thus far) with very little fanfare, recourse, discussion or perceived/implied severance compensation due, even after all those years I put in. Very disappointing. This circumstance is DIRECTLY due to and because of the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic.

Looking for Job or Open to Work

I am with you as I lost my job position that I held for 33 years with La-Z-Boy! Frustrating to find a job that is suitable for me because I don't talk on phone. Found out they created a new entry level job with different title position and it is my job.They realized they needed someone to do the job maybe for low pay or is it me? NOT!

I recall back in the mid 80's when I went to introduce my wife to be to my folks in Buffalo. It was Christmas of 1985 and 2 days before the holiday, Bethlehem Steel laid off some 18000 employees with men that have worked there their entire life. The plant was closing down due to the loosing of the Steel manufacturing contracts to China. These guys were to young to retire and what they though was to old to start a new career. In another instance, I worked for a global company that had a habit of relieving their staff when it came time for them to retire. Take a couple weeks off, get a new focus on like, review the skillset you have acquired over the years and start looking for a new career. Perhaps something you always wanted. Look outside your skill set that you think you have and apply yourself. I was impacted with the Covid19 pandemic as well which has put me out of work since June. I have taken the opportunity to do consulting work, and search for a new industry which is somewhat immune to the economy which I have landed. It is all perception, keep your chin up, do not share your feelings or misfortune with future employers. Let them know you can be a viable asset, have a positive outlook on the future and you will land a new and possibly a better position than what you had.

Welcome to the club, same here .just feels Like you put so much time in investing in to companies and this happens and we don’t get hired back and you just are left to sit and wonder what did I do wrong? and for me nothing is worse than sitting day in and day out looking for another job and realizing that you’ve got less skills than you realized, all because you put so much time and investment into one company that you had hoped would want you back with open arms when the places all started opening but instead they decided to use this pandemic in a way to “clean house” .. Why you got these congressmen sitting and bickering like children for the last couple months all because They can’t agree on a number to help out America 🤯👎🏻while people are living in their cars and just losing everything..it’s all just horrible a world that’s so messed up but I feel your pain, so hang in there!!((hugs))at least that’s what they always tell us

I feel your pain the same thing happened to me. I finally find a job with a good company and great people and then I get laid off due to this COVID mess. I pray everything goes back to normal after the 1st of the year.

I lost my job of 10 years and had to agree to never contact my fellow employees in order to collect the 110 hours of vacation pay that was due to me. Sometimes, life just stinks.

I’d have some after 13 years not acknowledged. I gave them two money saving suggestions that they implemented and I am well past retirement, was still working full time until covid. Now my department pushed me out. So that’s that. Idk ...
