I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, but please stop and consider those who are homeless. Did you know that Los Angeles has become the #1 capital in the U.S. for homelessness now? Our nation is hurting and we must stop to think about others if we are to turn this nation around and giving to our fellow citizens in need is a major way to help. One place that is in need is the Union Rescue Mission downtown Los Angeles Skid Row area. They are overwhelmed with the homeless seeking help on a daily basis and they need our help. Won't you consider reaching out to them this Thanksgiving, God will surely bless you. You can go to URM.com and donate. Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

Ive been with this company for about 5 months now. When interviewed I was assured that it was a laid back company easy going job and was hired but upon starting i was put in a different position than what i was initially hired for and thats where the issues begin. My 1st week there the employee training me tells me that shes NOT going to train me because upper management wouldnt be able to move her if i didnt know anything (red flag #1)...so thankfully the other 2 employees taught me enough to get by but i was never properly trained in doing MY job. A couple months went by of me basically being the "trainers" do girl and doing the hard jobs so she could sit at the desk and LOOK busy and the company started moving people around to different areas of the plant. The "trainer" was in fact moved anyway one of the others who did teach me SOME things quit and upper managent left me ALONE in a position i didnt know how to do...even after begging them not to they left me to simply sink or swim. Suprisingly I actually did ok but ended up getting sick and was out for a couple days with a drs note and upon my return my position was stripped from me and given back to the original "trainer" and i was back to being the "do girl" and the one doing the hard jobs thay she didnt wanna do. Ive went to my supervisor multiple times and nothing gets done. While i was alone i begged for help and overtime so i could get caught up and stay that way but got NoTHiNG. Today was really busy but instead of me being allowed to help i ended up going to get this and that running here or there while she took it upon herself to do everything well because she chose that and got busy soooo many people came to help her even people from the office (plant manager supervisor amd even the lady who does sales and schedules the pickups and deliveries). That hit pretty hard being i was never good enough to be helped and especially because she was able to get by with purposefully not training me and making me her do girl instead of me being allowed to do my job that i was hired to do. Im really debating on not even going back since i cant get any help from uppermanagement in fixing the issues thats going on but i honestly dont know whats best for me to do at this point. Please help

Ok, so this all started LAST Tues, early morning, on the night shift. Night supv & I had a conversation regarding other people he had hired & subsequently fired. He described guys having beer on the cart (on which we pick up trash, from admin buildings on a college campus). He also told me of "fraternization" between one of our guys (we're sub-contractors) & a married female employee of the college. Moving on, another guy was mad & decided to ram a cart into a barrier on purpose. Yet, another guy got his job done so quickly, he'd run off to the female dorm & hang out w his girl (fraternization). Now comes my info. I was doing the trash run last Tues. About 1/2 way thru, I went to the compactor & dumped off what I had piled up. Resuming the rest of my run, I got to the last stop, tossed the trash in the back. I decided to go into the building & use the bathroom. I spoke to the lady cleaning the building, about which restroom I could use (as she was cleaning at the time). As I came out, she mentioned that she remembered me as a clerk from my prior job. Naturally, we spoke for a couple of minutes, establishing that fact. Here we go...next thing I see is this company truck pull right up to the building. The "night boss" supv gets out, storming up to the door, starts raising his voice..."What are you doing in here ?, You aren't authorized in here, get in the truck NOW, we talked about this, it's fraternization". So, I proceeded to explain that I had to use the restroom. "I don't care". Anyway, we got back to the office..."get your things together & leave, get out of here". I asked, "Just what does that mean ?" He replied, "You're fired, just leave". Now, some fun w this. 1: This supv signed out "Supv" swipe card #1. I was assigned Supv swipe card #2. If these buildings were "off limits" to me, why was I assigned a "Supv" swipe that gets me into any building our company personnel clean overnight ? How can he claim "fraternization" when it comes to a short conversation, between a member of our own company & me ? NOW, THE BIG BANGER !!! This douche admitted to me, he met his current wife on the job ! He is the night Supv & she normally issues out the keys & swipe cards to the oncoming shift. Hmm...fraternization there folks ???

I applied a couple of weeks ago right at the store. Ask one of the check out workers where you can apply and talk to the manager while you are there

I felt proud to work for #Advent Health / Florida Hospital Orlando when...

I had close to 30 years as a hospital based Clinical Engineer in Connecticut. We were responsible for every area of the Hospital, But rotated through other areas, while we held on to or Primary areas. My main area for my entire career was Surgical Services. With the advent of Video systems, Lasers, and many new surgical modalities, I was allowed to grow up and develop, study work flows, and set up cart systems, and control booth areas. I "practiced perfection" my entire career. I moved south in 2014, and was hired by Florida Hospital / Advent Health. An absolutely wonderful place to work. I would mentor the new engineers, the same way I did in Connecticut, this was always a great experience. Unfortunately, Upper management in this Clinical Engineering Dept. felt I was spending too much time on tasks that they felt we, as a department, shouldn't be doing. I routinely pointed out that safety was always #1, but they never saw it that way. The departments I supported were thrilled with my customer service skills, the thoroughness of completing every task I was given. I was told by my management to forget perfection, it cost too much and took too long. After doing every job task 100%, for my entire career, I wasn't going to finish my career doing things any other way... The decision to walk from this career was torturing, but staying and doing it any other way would of been worse than staying. So I left.
