New, but old job...

I got laid off back in 2018, due to a project drop, via the company that i had worked for previously. I had medical problems, as well so they let me leave on good terms back in 2007, the first time. I can't seem at my age, to find ANOTHER job, but I'm good at technical support. And it's the only job, in which i can handle. I want to go back to restaurant work so badly, but my doctor said NO. Due to my back issues. I can however, handle technical support, and the money is really good.

Here's the kicker, I said I would NEVER go back. Because, of what my old SUPERVISOR, did on our last day of work. He used scare tactics, to threaten to call the cops, if we weren't on the phone, and legal department, as well. We were taught in training that no one, would EVER be able to contact legal, except attorney's. I said, Im reporting your power of abuse, and I will NEVER come back.

Evidently, this company still likes me, and wants me back. As I have a interview tomorrow at 12 pm. Would y'all take your old job back, if things were rough, and you couldn't get work else where??? I think my issue was what my old SUPERVISOR did to me. Is it possible, that I could get another SUPERVISOR? as well??? what would y'all do??? I'm biting the bullet, so-to-speak, and going to take this job and work it to the best of my abilities. I would have been mentor, here or IHD, if I would have just stayed and worked on another project. TP, is a call center, they do various projects, I can't say which ones, but they can switch you to different stuff. Thanks and sorry for the Novel!!! I'm just nervous, about going back. And I have trouble describing things!!! #motivation

The fact that they would like you to return speaks volumes especially given the current environment in which a lot of talented people are seeking employment. You are working for a company and not necessarily a single individual . Best of success in your decision making process. “Things happen for a reason”

Update from Colleen M

I have been looking for jobs since Sep 2019. I was terminated after people did not understand my issues at the time.

Feb 2020 I was finally diagnosed with autism amongst major other medical things.

Mar 2020 COVID-19 hits - everyone hates it - I know

July 2020 still looking for a job and have sent out e-resumes. I would not recommend using vocational rehab services during a pandemic - unless they are really active.

Also thinking of putting in a profile on fiverr.com and try my hand at home freelance work in genealogy & heraldry.

Anyone with tips on the online world? Thanks!

I'm 72, and no one is hiring me as a legal sec. 2 years ago my boss closed his legal practice (I was a legal sec there for 18 years. Later that year I found a lovely job online doing legal transcription from home as an Independent Contractor. Then all of a sudden Feb 12 the online company terminated my contract because of this stupid Calif Assembly Bill 5 which became law on 1/1/20. This Bill is for drivers, but it's affected all sorts of ICs. What am I going to do now. Is Gov. Newsome (who signed this Bill into law) going to pay my Bill's now?? He hasn't answered my letters, neither has Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez who introduced this stupid Bill.

Hi Colleen, unless you live in another state rather than California, forget online work. The California Assembly Bill 5 does not let us be Independent Contractors or freelancers unless we have our own business or are employees. I know, as I lost a much-loved online legal transcription job in Feb which I was doing from home because of this stupid Calif AB5. Hopefully you don't live in Calif, and I wish you all the best in finding an online job.

You will prevail. You will have a better job soon. Don’t stop seeking your journey. Things will turn around when you least expect it. Don’t do this alone. Ask a family member or friend for help with shelter. Keep staying strong!

I would apply for the pandemic unemployment not the regular one. If you have reduced hours they will help. Just apply and choose the debit card method

I have recently been laid off from my position as a Sales and Service advisor for a non-profit educational travel company. I am looking for a position as an advisor, team lead, or supervisor. Are there any suggestions that can be made to assist in my search? #laidoff #advice

Hi Charles, why not check out a local school/college to see if they need some help?

I was with a company for 8 years. They have always had issues with my pay. My employer gave me a substantial raise way back so I could afford the $750 a month health plan through his small business. New management came in to micro manage. I always had very positive bi annual reviews. So a comment was made to me from another co-worker just in casual conversation and I commented back (by saying,"I know he's got room to talk") next day I was fired. Reason... Undermining, jeopardizing the safety of the crew. I'm not quite sure I understand jeopardizing the safety of crew... Can somebody please explain this to me. I would appreciate it. Also they are fighting my unemployment. It's been denied!
