My coworker who was supposed to cover my shift but didn't show up. I had no idea until 2 days later when i show up for work and my manager threatened to fire me but he said he has to talk to the other managers. I had no idea of this. They never called me or informed me on the day of. It was a legal shift change. As in the manager approved it so what should I expect?? I don't want to end up unemployed.

So I got fired from Sams club today over a lie. A girl I met yesterday was extremely rude (unprovoked) and so I reported her. I had only been employed there for 4 days however I worked in the store for about 3 months. I never spoke the the girl just walked away and reported her. Turns outs she reported me for threatening her the very next day after I had reported her. However I was told by management that she knew me and we had went to school together. Turns out my little sister got into a fight with hers a while back. 3 months working there and never a problem but she sees me there with no formal Sams club representation on and She knew that I was employed by them and got me fired. they say misery loves company it I just wish it want my company. However asking them roll back the cameras and see that I never spoke a word to her wasn’t an option apparently. I found out shortly who she was after I was fired. Let’s just say I never hung or talked with her in highschool which was 4 years ago #termination #coworkers #management

A friend of mine has been on her job for quite some time. Lately her new managers have been criticizing her work, speak negatively towards her, and even placed her on a PIP. She called me this weekend frantic because she's never been treated this way by any other managers before and suddenly she's a poor performer. She shared how other teammates are talking amongst themselves about finding a new job, posting out or taking an LOA. She's afraid HR will only make the situation worse and it's considering legal advice at this point. I really hate to hear this because she goes to work everyday and this just started happening. She's experiencing stress, anxiety, weight gain, and just an emotional roller coaster. Should she seek legal advice or contact the EEOC?

I loved it! Everyone was SO nice and welcoming when I first started. They trained me excellent enough to where I was one of the top employees there. #aboutmyjob #coworkers

For those of you who follow me, you know that the place I work can be a bit challenging. I work for a 3rd party call center for a cable company. Recently things got a bit more challenging when it payday arrived last Friday and come to find out that No One from all three sites got paid. From management all the way down to the representatives. Now although I would still be annoyed, if they would have just gotten us together and explained and even said that honestly, they didn't understand what happened, I would get over it and move on with my day. However, throughout the day all we heard was gossip and when someone finally did come out of their office they just informed a group of people but nothing of what they were saying was making any sense. And then they were throwing people under the proverbial bus. I get direct deposit so therefore I don't expect to get my paycheck until Monday or Tuesday. Things happen. People make mistakes. But let us be honest about it. Right now I am just praying that this isn't just the beginning of something more serious.

How to Leave a Job on Good Terms.

Perhaps you’ve seen one of those videos in which someone who will go down in internet history as “a disgruntled former employee” stands up in front of the entire office, hurls some long-withheld insults at their manager and co-workers, cracks open a beer, and walks out of the room to the tune of their arena rock song of choice. Perhaps you’ve been waiting for the day you, too, could be one of those disgruntled former employees. The fact is that this is no way to leave a job, even if you have some devastating closing lines in mind. Your career will most likely be bigger than just one position, and other potential employers may end up hearing about your bad conduct – or seeing it on YouTube.

  1. Be constructive and polite in your exit interview.

Depending on the size of the company, the human resources department may wish to schedule an exit interview with you to find out why you’ve decided to leave. If not, think of the meeting in which you tender your resignation as an exit interview. In either case, you should not take advantage of this conversation to denigrate anyone with whom you’ve worked. You can be honest about why you’re moving on, but your phrasing should be positive, almost as if a job interviewer is asking you the same question. The same applies if you are asked what the company could do better, which often comes up in formal exit interviews.

  1. Tie up any loose ends.

It’s unlikely that your replacement will be ready to start working on the Monday right after your last Friday. That means your fellow team members may have to make up for your absence. To make things easier on them, complete as much work on your current projects as you can, and leave instructions for how your team can handle anything you may not be able to finish. You should also let your clients know when your last day will be and who to contact during the transition period. Assure them that they can expect the same level of service from your team that they’ve come to expect from you.

  1. Make sure your desk is clean and your files are organized.

This may seem like a little matter, but no office administrator likes having to pack up knick-knacks that an exiting employee has left behind, or wipe coffee stains off their desk. Do them a favor and handle that yourself. Some other clean-up you can do includes setting up new messages on your voice mail and your e-mail auto-reply, in case a client misses your departing e-mail. One of your most important tasks is to organize your computer files and e-mails as simply as possible for the benefit of your replacement. You’ve developed your own system over time, but think of what’s easiest for others to understand.

Keep working hard up until your very last day.

Deep down, you may think it doesn’t matter if you spend your final days on the job slacking off. After all, what are they going to do – fire you? No, they’re not, but they are going to resent you for giving them two weeks’ worth of catching up to do. Worse, eight hours a day on Instagram is eight hours you could have spent serving your clients, and failing to do this may damage their opinion of the company. So, once again, up until the day you clean out your desk, complete as much work on your current projects as you can – if not for the sake of your enjoyment, then for the sake of your reputation.

  1. Stay in touch with your former colleagues.

When you leave a job, your co-workers become contacts, and it’s always good to have more of those as your progress in your career. Make sure they know how to get in touch with you at your next office. Send them the occasional “Thought you would enjoy this” e-mail. Go out for lunch or coffee with them every once in a while. Don’t wait until you need their support to reach out to them, or they’ll feel like you only value them for your own benefit.
