Home Depot did me wrong

Im going to be straight forward. I served 10years out of a 13 year term in the California Prison system for a non violent crime (White Collar). When I was released 4 years ago, I landed my first job 1 month later at Home Depot. They did a background check, Drug check, etc... and all needed for me to begin work. I was hired on the M.E.T. at the Burbank store were I stayed employed for over 1 year. I requested L.OA. for surgery I needed and was granted but without pay. (Hmmmm Oh Well), as soon as I left Covid started and my surgery and everything was cancelled. So now I'm trying to go back to work and they said I need a Dr. note. For the life of me I could not get a note because the Dr. was not working due to Covid in the beginning. So in order not to be fired or any negative ding, I walked into H.R. office and requested to resign. They told me verbdom "come back and apply after 90 days and will hire you". Not only 90 days but I waited 1 year and went back. I filled the application on line got the interview again They all know me, and the back round took over 1 month with the results of denial. From the point I resigned to the point were I was coming back, I did not even get a single ticket, matter of fact I was discharged from parole early for good behavior and carry my parole agents letter for recommendation. I was so bumbed and upset that I have an attorney who picked up this case. Did I do wrong by this or right. Until now I am struggling because I was hired by UPS and Spectrum and both denied after background. I mean common, how are we suppose to survive and do good when denied left and right. Guys with violent charges I've seen working at security companies. REALLLYY?? All did is shifted and played with my own bank account for momentary gain. So now I'm self employed under DBA wrapping vinyl on cars and trying to save at the same time to open a small shop. VERY HARD TO SAVE. What should I do or turn to??? #jobsearch #advice #termination #coronavirus #stressful #interview #management #unemployment #benefits #healthcare #Home Depot

A little room to breathe

I’m sure everyone knows work in the service industry has been insane the last two years and I have worked every day of it. I was blessed enough to be able to spend the last few years of my maternal grandmother’s life with her, and have now bought myself a house close to my paternal grandmother in the hope that I can help her in the last years of her life as well. Instead I’ve been working 7 days a week up to 16 hrs per day and haven’t had time to breathe much less see any of my family, including my children, much less my grandmother. I’m a store manager in fast food, have been in fast food for for 25 years, have no problem working hard, or putting in long hrs, mostly want to find something in the city I live in so I don’t have to drive an hour 7 days a week or maybe something where I can work from home. I live in LaFayette, Ga any help is much appreciated #advice #jobsearch #foodservices #management

Add at least 10% to the current amount of money you’re grossing at 50 hours a week.

Management needs to manage not to manage by fear. Life is full of choices but not to mange with the right conviction has no place in any situation. What would you do if you were a part of that work group?? Remember right is always right.

The termination was not his fault. The supervisor was worried about anyone taking his job from him. He saw that he could not hide this new workers abilities That over shadowed which his own. Therefore he got rid of the threat thinking he saved his job and hide his weaknesses. We do not know what happened after that but everyone knew the solution had to be everyone must be fired Or no one. What we do know that management did not manage, They just wanted to be in charge and do nothing in order to get by. No one wanted to stand up just get by. #termination #management #interview #advice #jobsearch #stressful Thank you for your time Scott

Terminated by Wal-Mart

I worked for Walmart off and on for 25 years this last time was for 17 years. They told me I was terminated because I made to many mistakes, first they told me I was to slow and couldn't keep up, I pointed out to them before they promoted me to management, I was going to be slow because I was handicapped (I only have one hand) but I kept my head down and did my work the man you promoted me said I was exactly what he was looking for. Thru the years he left the company and a new GTM came in. After pointing this out They changed their tune to I was making to many mistake but still they kept me dispatching 3 D'C'S (distribution centers) when a lot of people where dispatching 1 or 2 DC's there were a lot of times 2 people were dispatching 1 DC. At first they started accusing me of things I didn't do. I was on vacation and they said they tried calling me in for coverage, I was out of town and I told them I would be out of town I had family coming up to visit me and I would be out of town also I wasn't next in line to do coverage two other people were ahead of me on of the person that was ahead of me said they never called him to come in. Also I have document to back a lot of this up, and also I have tape recording of them falsely accusing me of thing I didn't do. I used their open door and when they terminated me I asked the HR manager what every became of the open door issues no one every got back with me, she told me they couldn't find any reason to allow it so they threw it out without even telling me. I went to a lawyer and he said they couldn't use the tapes in court because it was done with out their permission also he wanted $460.00 an hour which I couldn't afford. So I gave up taking it any further. This all happen in May of 2014 I suppose it's to late to do something about it now. I was 7 months away from turning 66 I thing that might have been one of the real reason they terminated me. Since then I have applied over 200 places to get a job and been refused. I sure they were behind that to. #Walmart is all about politics.

IT Project Manager Positions

Hi everyone! Seeking entry-level project manager positions in the IT field. I want to apply my existing management experience & skills (that I obtained during my construction management job and working with Amazon retail store as Project Manager) into the IT management field. Because, I believe my experience & skills are transferable to IT, given that I also recently finished a Master of Science (MS) degree in IT project management. Over 4 years of experience as assistant project manager on various projects that required detailed invoice and requisition review presented to approval of project managers. Also, previously over a year experience in multi-million dollar projects in geology such as coal and marble drilling.

Walmart gave me the tools to develop my skills, there I learned to work as a team and not only limited me to being a cashier, but also trained me to run the entire store. #jobsearch #management #foodservices #workfromhome #interview #wordsofadvice #application #nationwideusa #hiringnews #customerservice #hiring #parttime #fulltime #warehouse

Got fired for being slow

Been a machinist for over 30 years and finally think I am through with the trade.

The first red light of this position was that there were only about 3 true skilled tradesmen, one had started a month before me. Red light 2 was the company was having trouble finding talent in a city of over 40K. Number 3 was that no matter how many times the owner denied it, the shop operated on razor thin margins. The other red lights came as the year went, employees being let go at a whim, or in less than scrupulous fashion.

So, at 54 and lacking the dexterity of younger people. Due to a slight disability, brought on by an accident that happened while serving in the US Navy. I was not confident about a future with the shop. As the year went on I owned my share of mistakes on projects but nothing, game ending. I always owned my mistakes, showed up every day, showed up every day early, always worked extra, never played the break game, and volunteered when no one else would to run on weekends.

Skip ahead to around November 5th. The owner comes up and says that I am taking to long on jobs. Mind you this is 10 months into my employment. 7 if you count the fact that I had to prove myself through a temp agency first. I complete a couple of more programming/set up/ part runs/ inspections. Then on December 10th he calls me in the office and gives me my Merry Christmas, "Your just not getting the work out, so today is your last" . Through my entire employment I was only asked once why a specific job was taking so long. When I told them it was because I didn't have the correct tooling, it was my fault.

I have read volumes about how the American worker is not meeting the grade. I felt I had given the company a fair days work for the wage I was being paid. But, if your not given a clear indication of specifically what is happening and solutions about how the non specified problem is supposed to be corrected. What do you do? I hear the complaint that there is a shortage of skilled machinist who will stay and do the work. With people like this running people down I would never encourage anyone to become a machinist.

There are many ways to manage and I seem to be in a slump of people who are excelling at doing it poorly. Thankfully, and hopefully I will retire soon.
