I'M SERIOUSLY PISSED OFF THAT THE TEMP AGENCY HAD THE AUDACITY TO CALL ME AFTER I GET OFF WORK FROM THE SITE I'M WORKING AT TELLING ME THAT SINCE "Production is down,They no Longer need me.My supervisor gave me a list of people to call and tell them they've completed their assignment at shamrock"(the place i used to work at).The funny thing is I was in the middle of taking a sh*t and my mom who was off of work already answered the phone but this is the honest truth that the secretary at the Temp agency told me when i called her back.

My supervisor told me on Friday that "I was slow" when I was doing "Q.C" which is nothing more than closing boxes and putting them on a conveyor belt that when it gets hectic and since there are 3 MORE People doing the same ish I'm doing and the Top two are faster than the bottom 2 and there is virtually no space for me or my co workers to put boxes on the belt.when we have to hold the line back in order to put a box on the belt IT WOULD TEND TO PUT A HALT ON THINGS NOW WOULD IT?.I wouldn't be able to work as fast as I can when I'm trying to hold the line of boxes back and then put my box on.It's quite odd that I had been doing the Q.C for approx.11 days that the day which i think set the end result of today in motion is that this past wensday the 22 is that my supervisor had told me that the company is cutting production my area and me and 6 others couldn't work.The 6 other people were the people who just scanned the items before putting them back in the boxes for me to close and put on the belt.well lo and behold THEY GET SWAMPED with shipment that with the people they had they were completely inadequate to handle :D:lol:

I know this may sound odd but the people in charge of this business(daily operations) MUST HAVE FLUNKED Business school because this is a direct quote from my supervisor "everyday they make guesses to how many people they need each day since they employ temp services for the hiring".now that would mean before they went this route they had fulltime spots that this is all a person did 5 days a week and what's also comical is that these pricks are CHEAPSKATES IN EVERY ESSENCE OF THE WORD!.Reason why i say that is about last week they upped our production requirements to a ludacrus level and today i had the chance to work in packing.(in essence all i was doing was scanning items getting missing items from the shelves and putting them back on the conveyor belt).in order to move up from 7 to 8 dollars an hour for the day i had to scan 3,000 items,since i didn't get a chance to work until 45-50 minutes into the shift i only managed 1900,my co worker got 2200.

Now to the reason why i brought up business school is because the MAIN reason why the Q.C. lines were getting clogged was WE were putting on boxes FASTER than the people TAKING THEM OFF.Now I DON'T HAVE AN MBA or have ever RUN ANY TYPE OF BUSINESS but WOULDN'T IT MAKE SENSE TO HIRE MORE PEOPLE TO TAKE THE BOXES OFF THE BELT RATHER THAN BE A SPINELESS GREEDY PU$$* and cut me and a few other people?.I KNOW THE REASON WHY BECAUSE IT DOESN'T Affect them.it doesn't hurt their wallets.

The sad thing about this Bullsh*t is I get up at 5am monday through friday to not only get to work by 7am and I get there early,clock in early ready to work.I WAS NEVER LATE.SO basically because i was "slow" due to no fault of my own i was let go.

There is a bright side to all of this doom and gloom from me is that i made 2 freinds that have studio connects.and one of the connects deals with interscope records:lol:.assuming i get taken on as an artist and have a hit album or two i
ll buy shamrock and become their boss and FIRE THOSE IDIOTS :lol::lol:

yeah you're right..but i'm still steamed about havin the rug pulled out from underneath me so to speak you know?.I mean it's not that I'm a bad worker,hell me and every temp worker employed there EXCEPT the supervisors Bust their hump day in and day out and I just get angry and annoyed that do they actually know what they're doing when it comes to keeping and firing people or even making a suggestion to do so to higher management?.

I'm tired of being an employee,I need to work for myself but because I'm broke I can't do sh*t:BangHead::BangHead::BangHead:
What's sad about this is that nearly everyone is born and bred to be an employee and not a boss.Haven't you noticed that with some people(I mean take myself for an example) I've had ****...:eek:.11 Jobs this year including this temp one that maybe I need to work for myself because working for others doesn't seem to last or work out?.Life it's frustrating,death it's the coward's way out:lol:

certain states can fire without a reason, they dont even need to tell you.

grantid that is what should of happened rather then stating your not "fast enough"..

however its starting at my job too. we have to record every minute while we work and have to average a certain amount of "working minutes" otherwise we're reviewed and then let go...

7 friends have been fired this week...and were so backlogged with stuff its like "UM NO!?"

i thought u were a car saleman
nah not anymore i stupidly flooded a hummer accidently by leaving the sunroof open overnight and then it rained like katrina:BangHead:
Since then I WAS working for Shamrock Corp through Adecco which is a temp agency.

Well now however i'm out hunting and I got a few things on the burners
1.Fed-Ex ($11.17 an hr doin delivery driving~non-CDL.they should call me by friday,all is pending is my background check and driving record)

2.Eco-Lab($7.50 an hr It's through another temp agency i've registered with but unlike Shamrock which ironiclly they have people working at as well,this job is temp to hire)

3.RICE TOYOTA(YES CORNEY AND APPROPRIATE AS THAT MAY SOUND.there is a car dealership called RICE,I Spoke to the service Manager and him and the quick lube manager who already has 7 guys to see if he can used a mildly experienced person like myself.I had an interview with them today)

4.Flow Saturn/Pontiac/GMC (I spoke to the service manager today as well about doing Prep/Pre-Delivery Inspection/oil changing type of work for them and he has to "further review" my application)

5.TERRY LABONTE CHEVY(I just filled out an application there and they are looking for sales people there but from what i saw it's not exactly a times square on new years eve and i left)

6.City Mazda/Jeep(i filled out an application spoke to the service manager he said he's not hiring and told me he had to let go of 5 people)

7.Modern Infiniti(I know it's a long shot but i said what the hell i just filled ot an application and instead of speaking to the service manager who wasn't in today i ended up speaking for a good hour with a salesman and NOT end up buying an infiniti and this guy knew more TECHNICAL data about cars than any other saleman i've ever interacted with and he would probably be on par with a Infiniti trained tech he knew so much.if i wasn't broke and jobless i'd buy a car from this guy cuz he was good

the thing about KIA is that on december 1st a tech is going into active duty(stop loss) and there is a chance i may pick up his spot and it would be for 14 months

If you have the mechanical skills required, there is always a huge demand for skilled certified techs in that industry. You should be doing that instead of stacking/packing boxes. That had to be incredibly boring for you. You should take this opportunity to get a better "Career" and let someone else have the "jobs".

That's not stop loss, that just having your unit activated. Stoploss is when you're active duty and the term of your enlistment contract is up and they say "You're staying anyway." You never actually get to leave the military. :p

I thought Casey was back from a tour, and while he was here, about to go off active duty, they stop-lossed him, and sent him back? Isn't that what happened?

well reguardless this is what the service manager told me so i'm taking it at face value.also I'm seriously considerin joinin the navy but i gotta drop about 75lbs at least.I'm 325 now,when i moved down here to nc i was 352.but to answer cruzned i'm not ASE certified one of the reasons why is because i don't seem to stay at one job long enough to actually stack money ahead of bills so i can get the study material and take the tests.anyway if any one of these auto service jobs come through i'm sticking with it but if fed-ex calls and i'm either at a dealership i may turn fed-ex down,but if i'm at eco-lab and fed-ex calls i'm leavin eco-lab.but the military is an option i'm not taking lightly

I'm pretty sure that CJP was stop-lossed. I think that was a large part of the reason he was so bitter.

Congrats on the ECO-Lab position.....on a side note, it would be in your best interest to lose weight for a multitude of reasons besides Navy weight criteria.
