Several factors come to play. Where you live, education, work experience, what job you are applying for, do you have a degree that requires a license.

Agree with a over response. I made a comfortable living there and my employees were happy with their wages and benefits. I carried a RN license so pay and benefits were excellent at the time I worked there I retired in 2010 the benefits toward retirement and my 401k were worth saving for. Sl AL paternity leave are some of the benefits I enjoyed my 25 year's loved working for the VA but it was work.

There were 3 areas on the 60 day P.I.P.(performance improvement plan) I was placed on Mar 2, '22. Attendance, Recording and Performing my job title, Tech Level E(expert). I was not given the full 60 days to complete my tasks, discharge on Apr 28, '22 . I didn't miss any days but was late twice, once for an alarm issue and once for a weather related problem. I was told that being late happens and they would be understanding. I then took better notes than anyone ever has in the company but was told that my notes were not to expectations. Had I been given clear and precise instructions, I would have done them as expected but was told after 30+ days how they wanted them done. Lastly, before employment I informed very clearly that I am not an expert and I had no experience with some of the equipment at their facility. They still hired me at their discretion as is and told me they would train me. They had given little to no training and told me to figure out on my own how to get training. After doing so, I was given little time to do online training. I had asked to be demoted and had been denied. And to become an expert level tech is impossible in the year I was employed and even more impossible in 60 days, especially with no help. Also, with expectations not being met immediately, they still did not discharge me until weeks later. With this, in Dec 2021, I was told to ride in the back of the van with no seat or restraint and my supervisor and coworker playing around threw me around in the van sustaining wrist and knee injuries. And I was insulted many times by them for needing rental assistance from the state. As a Military Veteran suffering from PTSD they were insensitive to my needs and caused more stress and anxiety than any employer I have ever had. I was denied safety gear and had to complain to the EHS Dept for help as well. #L3Harris #termination

Hello All,

I hope this message finds y’all well. I am CPT HIMAT an Afghan Army officer currently assigned in the U.S. Army Logistics University, Ft Lee Virginia. I have just received authorization for permanent resident asylum and am seeking my first civilian employment as I leave the military in three weeks.

Quick to my background: Have Bachelor in Supply Chain from Germany, I am fluent in 5 languages and have 6+ years experiences in Logistics and supply chain management. I am searching since couples of weeks to find a supply chain job (Management level) in Richmond or nearby areas related to my skills. Unfortunately, I haven’t succeeded. If anyone of you friends could assist and help me by finding a job, it would be highly appreciated. Any point of contact, recommendations, reference or assistance would be highly appreciated.

And If someone who might be interested in learning more about me. Please feel free to reach out to me anytime. Thanks

ZAHIR

I'll try to make this as short as I can. I'm a 55 year old military vet, I started working for this very small company in 2017. It consisted of manufacturing in a warehouse, which there was a manager , two supervisors, office manager which all 4 had been with the company over 20 years. Myself and another guy was hired the same day he was about 28 years old. In 2019 the company was sold to a larger company which had multiple warehouses throughout the United States. They had approximately 10 more employees all below the age of 25. Within 6 months the manager and two supervisors were gone. The guy that started when I did was promoted to supervisor and they rented another warehouse a mile down the road for inventory. I was put in charge of it not as supervisor but as team leader. Which I had no problem with it because I love the job best job I ever had. The guy started when I did was on salary and I was continuously promised raises. After a year and half I grew frustrated and begin complaining in my warehouse not around them. They installed cameras with audio and video and began eavesdropping. One day at lunch I was called into a meeting and told I wasn't doing my job right but I had never been verbally or written reprimanded. I was told to step down and come back to original warehouse or I would be fired they tried to humiliate me as hard as they could. I agreed to step down out of fear, thank the Lord above I recorded the meeting. After a couple of months I knew I wasn't to be able to work from them so I went to my supervisor and told him I wasn't quitting for any reason but I was going to cooperate and file a complaint. I also recorded that conversation. Thirty minutes after leaving the warehouse I was sent an email accepting my resignation and banning me from all properties including corporate. What should I do?
