Was I wrongfully fired?
I started working as an Office Assistant at a construction company in Phx AZ. I was not trained and was told I was replacing a family member there. So she said it wasn’t easy to train me while she was still there and it was a small office. They seemed like very nice people. I just received an upsetting text message (which she was aware I had to tend to getting my daughter to class and back) So I tossed my phone in my purse and went outside for less than 2min. I came back took my phone out and put my phone back on my desk and continued my day. I have an iPhone 8 and when I left work instead of my music turning on a recording came on it was regarding me ahe was talking to her husband that I seem upset when I do the filing and a conversation I had with her throughout the next hour or so. When I put my phone in my purse I must of pressed the audio recorder without realizing it. The next day I mentioned to her what happened and that I’m not frustrated with her that I liked my job and desperately needed it. I just wanted her to know that due to not being trained I may get quiet since I’m trying to figure out the work she was giving me so I was just concentrating hard. I Noticed in the next hour or two that she wasn’t acting her normal self and asked her what was wrong. After pleading with her she finally said I don’t trust you anymore. I apologized for it happening several times even offered to not have my phone or purse in the office. I told her I felt being honest with her was important to me and didn’t want her to feel I was upset. Yes it was frustrating redoing a lot of the paperwork that wasn’t completed by their family member and I felt not training me wasn’t the best idea but I desperately needed the job so I would what I could. To the point of sweeping and mopping the floors taking out the trash ect. It was pretty much at the end of the day her children and dog were there due to school vacation I was crying and said may I leave now she said yes and I asked if I can come back tomorrow she said yes. I received a text message in the morning that they decided to terminate me. I was about maybe 2 weeks away from my 90days!! I was blown away that she took it that far as well as many other issues in the office I won’t mention. The day before I was praised about my hard work and that I was appreciated for everything I was doing. That they appreciated my suggestions that would help save money ect. Yet they kept the family member that was playing video games and other things that were very inappropriate which is why they hired me to replace. It makes me wonder if they were doing something wrong. Why would I go to her and tell her what happened if I was trying to be malicious towards them!? Please any advice
Employees True Rights
I worked six years for a company in the food industry moved up fast was praised and love till I became store Manager. There were untold rules that following policy and truthful information being delivered to senior management was in not wanted. I have a family to support I’m 40 years old and divorced after 18 years of marriage. When favorite employees were drinking on the job and my supervisor refused to handle the issue I reported to the DM big mistake. To her I was a snitch, my phones were hacked by coworkers to make sure my boss knew who I contacted and what if any actions I made she knew. I filed a police report and was transferred but labeled a trouble maker and emotional problem. I was purposely recorded at new location ordered by DM a close relative to one of the owners. He instructed these few employees to bully me harrase me and record conversations between us it was admitted by 2 a GM and assistant but was the last straw they wanted me out . I was fired the day after I was informed of the crimes of my privacy at work due to missing a meeting where I felt threatened. I was awarded unemployment but they are lying and fighting it I just am devistated all the hard work and no refrece.Be careful about companies that have family members who don’t follow state or government rights on privacy or harassment it’s happening big time .My 3 employees that knew of these crimes against me were terminated within 3 weeks of me being fired.
I work for BrightStar which is a company that sells Sprint phones and I was fired because I didn't want to sell LG phones over Samsung when I was hired I wasn't told to sell any specific kind of phone over another but when it came down to it I found out the company got a bigger kick back from LG I had my own store at RadioShack and I know it's not the way things are done that company is terrible to work for
I wanted to quit, but instead I got fired!
I recently got out of a toxic job that was BAD, BAD, BAD! I had planned to leave once I knew that it wouldn't get better, but decided to wait until I got fired so that I could collect unemployment benefits. I was miserable long enough, i figured why not?! Now I'm looking for a new job and I don't know what to say about the whole thing. I've already lied to a few interviewers and said that I quit, but I don't know if this is the right path...or legal? I also feel pretty bad about lying!
Just not fair
I was contacted Monday on my day off that my assignment had ended because of a cutback I was never late and did not miss any days from work. The lead who ran the dock rather sloppy evidently told staff something bogus it was a great job opportunity taken away because of sloppy leadership I just don't think was fair or professional
Let go from a company i loved working for cause i wasnt a fit for my shift
I was called into my planet mangers office after asking for a meeting with my shift manager with HR. My shift manager was fired by HR and it made the 2 planet managers just pissed so to get back at them the fired me . One I was the only woman in my field and I knew my job and I was as old as the one plant mangers mother so he was intimated by me. I got a hold of the CEO of the company asking for something saying why I was let go so the older plant manger sent me a generic letter saying they were making changes to my shift and I wasn't a fight the letter was typed but the envelope was hand written very I'm professional for a company who receive the fortune 500 in 2015.
