08:58 am: Wake-up call
I just received a call from my temp agency. They said that my foreman at the place I had been so excited & happy to work at didn't think that it was the job for me & that I'm not to return on Monday.


- E V I L O U T -

Update: 1:40 PM
I managed to get a few hours of sleep after that call but not many. Since I woke I've been trying to find the address of Sub Zero's sister company, Wolf, who coworkers informed me is actively hiring. I'd like to drop by there, look around & maybe fill out an application. I'll also be looking for the map I printed to Frito Lay since I've been interested in them since before Sanford went tits-up.

One of the most frustrating parts of that call this morning is that I don't really know why they let me go. I hadn't even finished training yet. That's hardly enough time to tell if someone will work out or not. My temp agent was rather vauge, citing something about the foreman mentioning that I didn't appear to handle the noise level very well which is baloney. The part about "not the job for me" had to have been her words as I know Marv doesn't speak that way. That's one of the downfalls of being a temp, you're disposable.

The worst part is, not only am I losing a good job with great benefits, I'm also losing all new friends I would have been working with. I was really looking forward to that.

Dude, I'm not sure what I can say knowing that the phrase "That sucks" is likely to be overused in the next few hours. I guess all I can say is that if they think they didn't need you, then perhaps they aren't worth working for. Damn, I hope you have some success here soon...you don't deserve this crap.

That sucks most mightily indeed! I hope your temp agency hauls ass and finds you a better, more appreciative place to work ASAP.

they should have let you get through training, that doesn't even make sense. ((hug)) Like the others said if he's that much of a jerk you're probably lucky you don't have to work for him.

At least your back room is going to get cleaned?

Oh I'm officially NOT CONTAGIOUS. I've got a note and everything. ^_^

Oh Red Letter News is hiring, if you're into working in a porn shop.

That su Lousy. Well, at least it was a paycheck while it lasted. Best of luck in resuming your search, and do check in with the places you'd tried before.

Shit, Jim, that sucks *sets fire*. A similar thing happened to me last summer when I was employed by the UW Hospital for a week, only to be told at the end I "wasn't right for the position" with no real further explanation. It would have been a great job, too (benefits/etc) and I'm still kind of burnt out over it.

Hoping you find something better soon.
