I was Laid Off from my last position 4 yrs ago. Since then have been looking for a job to help supplement my income> I am a Senior Citizen with what I feel is an excellent work ethic. I am dependable & reliable. I know Word, some Quick Books, phone, office machines. I have submitted resumes everywhere but no success. I have even tried WALMART & I was informed I did not pass their assessment test - Really? Guess they don't want anyone with brains & Common Sense
Thought I found the perfect job only find it wasn't ment to be
I found a part-time job at grooming salon where I was going to be a receptionist, answering calls, setting up appointments and helping out where needed. Well I went to interview for this salon and everything went well I was offered the next day. I started my training where the owner scheduled me for four hours for four days. The first day was I was little nervous , because this was something new to me. When the week finally when I was officially an employee sad that is when things went wrong. I was there early, I ran into the owner who was not suppose to be back until after the holiday showed. I got in with her I started taking down the messages that were left and then I went an check on each client to find out whom their dog last had and where I could fit them in the schedule. I did my best to do this and get back to everyone on top of helping clients check in and out of the salon, however the owner the could see that I was struggling and decided it would best to let me go. ( I wish the owner would have give a little hours for the training time and it's kind hard when the salon is closed on Monday and Tuesday to try and catch up with things), The nicest thing the owner did was add some extra money to the money I made for my training time, I did learn something so as if were to find another job similar to this.
Trown out like trash after 12 years. #outwiththeold
I was #terminated over the phone after 12 years with the same company. All my annual reviews have been either above average or meets standards. This last year those "standards" kept going up till I could no longer meet them. 2 months before the end of the year and my 12 year anniversary, I was terminated with cause. Thinking back I wonder if I should have just quit; Did I make a mistake by not? I filed for unemployment, but I believe it will be denied. Is it even worth asking for an appeal if I do?

EEOC case or I just had a bad boss?
I recently got terminated from my job as a manager. It all started in January when I got sick and My boss knew but he told me he would come back the next day to check our stock level for prep, the next day I tried my best to go to work but I am so sick that I had to call in sick. Two days later, when I came back to work I found out that I was no longer the manager in charge of my store anymore. No explanations from my boss. Two weeks later, we had a managers area meeting and found out that I was the only manager that was not notified about it. Clueless and no training on how to do it I did an on the spot presenatation based on what I saw the other managers reported. I was stopped by my boss only to embarass me infront of everybody to point out what I did wrong. I went back to my seat and swallowed all the humiliation.Later that day, I did my 2nd presentation and on my second slide show again I was stopped and told that the presentation was not from the company. At this point, I told my boss everything that was in my slide was valid, the only thing that is different from his perspective is that I used a different picture to elenorate my presentation. I asked if he wanted me to continue because if he is gonna continue yelling at me and embarrasing me infront of everybody I am not going to waste my time and his time. He yelled at me and told me he has the right to stop me and embarass me because he is my boss. I sat down after being belittled by him. After the meeting, I sent him a text to apologize because I did not mean to disrespect him and all he replied wa "learn from it". Then there are several occassions that I felt like he is trying to look for loopholes to get rid of me like given a write up for not wearing my name when he walked in and gave me a final warning that would lead to my termination if another occurence happen.He sends other managers to spy on my store operation and look for every little mistake. I talked to him about how I felt and he told me he is just challenging me because he expects that I would quit already. I told him I. Am not a quitter. Then he brought another manager in and she gave me a final warning when I had to call in for an emergency due to my son and husband being sick. We had the CEO visit and I was told to change from a manager shirt to a regular employee shirt. Then the final incident happened when My schedule was changed without notifying me and I came late. I was in a rush to get the store together that I forgot to clock in, at he end of the night I asked the other manager to fix my time so he put my time in. The next day, These 3 managers called my attention and implied that I changed my time and the manager that changed my time card denied it. I challenged them to pull the camera footage and when my boss saw it he decides to send me home so he could further investigate it. I told him there is your proof so why are you still sending me home? You did not have a hat, so you need to go home. I told him, That I asked the other manager to give me a spare hat but he refused to give me one and he said its ok to not have it for the day. I did not argue anymore and got my things and went home. That night my employees called me and told me that I am banned from the store and that I was terminated. I called hr the next day to ask the reason for my termination and she could not tell me the reason why. I got a text from one of the managers askjng me to come in and I told him that after spreading the word to all my employees that I was terminated I will not come in to talk to them but they can talk to my lawyer. So do you think I have a valid EEOC complaint for harrassment?
