Lost my job at amazon :-(((

I have. Even with amazon as a blue badge ( one who works for amazon and is not a temp anymore) since 2012 . I left in the end of aug due to the fact I was doing a job where I would stand still alllllll day lonnnnng and count bins of product . I left cause I would find myself falling asleep no matter how much sleep you had . I am ADHD and non medicated so I needed to stay busy and preferably moving !!! I came back but as a temp for Integrity which is the temp agency for amazon . It was short lived and only for peak . Two days after I started my job at Amazon my husband was to have surgery to remove a kidney stone the size of a marble !!! So big and everything so backed up he got a deathly infection I have know idea of how it spell !!! He almost died that night !!! Long story short , he was in MICU for 23 days and I accrued points . That is what an Integrity associate accrues when they miss work . You are not to go over a certain amount or you can get fired . It's a known fact and it applies to all . How many people go to work everyday with their other half in the ICU and functions okay and for that matter doesn't miss any work ??? You miss a whole day but call out it's 1.5 points . You are allowed 4.5 tot pal in order to convert and hopefully work for amazon . You can see here if I was to miss two days I'd be at 3 points already !!! Needless to say , I got walked out yesterday for to many points . I had like 7 . I know the rules and I can appreciate them but gee wiz , my husband almost died and we have no time allotted to use to take off when it's peak time so I had to miss work . I had 40 hrs to use as of dec 26 of non paid time off which is fine but still got fired !!! Not cool and I guess they didn't really appreciate what they had so now someone one will get it !!!

Perfectionist Boss/Derogatory Commentary

So I work for a pretty large network, akin to a government facility so there are lots of people i have worked with and met over the 3 years working here part time: Im 23 and just graduated from college and am more looking for full time positions. My former head supervisor was an amazing women like a second mother, truly a nurture and she taught me so much in the 2 years we worked together, sadly she left in July. Her second in command is about 27/28 and can into the scene about same time and so we have all worked together for 2 years. With my supervisor leaving her next in command was into her position, leaving a full time opening. I applied for this. Prior to applying I have applying to several over job openings in the network and not heard much back. As the change of command has shifted so has the relationship with my boss. It is as if she has become on the lookout for my mistakes. At one I was discussing life and living and she makes a comment about how I am a “child” and how I “ can’t even get an apartment” mind you I work part time, and she said this with all seriousness. On another point she texted me saying she would be writing me up because I didn’t not clock in or out and it would result in a suspension, even though I was not working. Also she made a comment about how she had not seen anything impressive in the time she has worked with me, and how despite most it being covid and things being shut down for a lot of the time we worked together. It was as if the only thing she could see was my age and my mistakes when she looks at me. At one point she mentioned how, “whenever she sees me doing nothing she’s going to make note for my evaluation”. Of which thankfully a higher supervisor sat in with. I have started to send weekly email reports with all the things in the week I accomplished in order to show her my part in this job since she chooses to ignore it. I know bevahe of this attitude I would not have gotten the job. But I still believe I shouldn’t have to deal with this. I’ve been shorted my hours, scheduled the worst shifts, but I work for a GREAT purpose and I adored my job before she came into command. I frankly work my butt off for these people and give them alot of my holidays and TONS of my weekends and I would appreciate a little respect. Please tell me if I’m losing my cool over nothing. #management #advice #coworkers # #workenvironment #stressful #interview

Am I being taken advantage of?

I love my job. I'm a manager at a small owned business, lately it seems like it's just getting worse, I've been at my job 2 years and only make $10 and someone who has been here 3 months makes a dollar less than me. I came into the job already with experience. We hire people who quit within a few days leaving us to work even harder. I just got done working 9 days straight cause we had 3 different people out of 6 on vacation, I have a three year old and feel like I barely get any time with her anymore, I go to work and she's asleep, I come home and she's asleep. My boss asked me to work the night shifts cause she feels bad leaving her kids....as if I don't miss mine. Honestly I'm pretty sure some of the work related stuff like hours and overtime she doesn't do any I'm pretty sure it's illegal in the state of GA. Thanks for listening to my rant #advice #workenvironment

Being a Caddie there for 16 years you have to know how to read them greens. And it's the best golf course I've ever carried a bag at.

Hostile work environment

If you are leaving a job due to a hostile work environment, what is the best way to tactfully explain that to a potential employer?

Is it verbal assault to get screamed on a daily basis especially when doing as told?

I am not sure about what to do about this. This happens everyday to me. I do what is expected just to get screamed at for doing the assigned tasks. It shouldn't be this way! When I complain, I get told off or say something else smart and you will be sent home or they say do you want to work. They are supposed to take you off to the side to tell you about any problems with performance not in front of others. I live in a right to work state. Reporting this to upper management will not help me. Filing a complaint with the state or the police report is the only move available before physical violence takes place. I was put in this unpleasant position before. I have walked away from jobs because being provoked into fighting them. I want to press charges because they refuse to stop being verbally aggressive! I don't even know that being a pack of immature dickheads would apply. Doing everything that you are told doesn't equal getting fussed at. I am grateful for employment. It's not the job itself but the people who are in charge. This is a civil rights violation even though they are poc therefore I don't have to stuck up. I didn't ask for this ill treatment because I am there to work not be to in a clique. I have my own friends. These people are young, emotional and irresponsible. The people who promoted them are just as emotional and incompetent. This is the only problem with with work. I like being helpful. These bottom feeds are ungrateful for the help. I do not own them a living. The generation was given awards for being born and still think they are entitled to respect that isn't earned. They didn't earn their positions due to the lack of life skills. Doing things with people got them where they are not responsible , ethical hard work. I am currently looking for work without any luck. Money is the only reason I do this.
