Last week I started a new job. I was honest about my skills and received a ton of mixed messages ---one day it was "you will get the hang of things in time" and then the next day the owner was breathing down my neck! She just called me on a Sat to fire me! Did she do a favor though? It was a small business, they paid ok, no bennies, hired me pretty quickly I have to say....I am ticked off right now and upset as well...

I was terminated after being told to return to work as I was getting over Covid-19, when I found out by the company nurse practitioner that I was type 2 diabetic, the day October 18th 2021,I was a forklift operator for 5 years same job,I was told to return to work with a glucose of 466,they the nurse practitioner didn't care about my safety, so I went on medical leave, on the day my primary care physician released me to return to work, I called my HR department and told them that I was,released to return to work, the HR lady said I was terminated,furthermore when I filed for unemployment benefits, the company gave me the reason for termination was MISCONDUCT, a character defamation, a stain on my professional career, how can big businesses get away with giving people this type of hardship? This happened in Illinois where I work and live in Indiana. Please share my story. 🇺🇸

I’ve been unemployed since the lockdowns put my airline out of business. I knew it was going to be tough getting on at an airline so while I have been applying at any airline that’s hiring I’ve also been applying to other customer service jobs in my area. I’ve sent out hundreds of applications and am getting nothing coming back. No calls, nothing. I have over 20 years experience in customer service. I have a Bachelor’s degree. I’ve had my resume looked at by professionals, if I could afford to have one of them write it for me I would, but alas I have no money. If I can’t be a flight attendant for a while I would prefer a work from home position, I’m more than qualified to work as a call center rep or something like that. There’s a disconnect somewhere in this scenario and I can’t Figure out what it is. Why is this happening? #workfromhome #jobsearch #application #resume #interview
