Lol terminated?

I guess there's something to be said about working under ex-family.

We have a 16 year history of arguing and fighting and the ex-old man never caught on that I'm no longer a kid and do not deserve to be treated like one.

I guess there's also something to be said about discrimination in the work place, but that is a pretty convoluted matter.

It's funny because I was just explaining to someone how much I hated working there then BAM an hour later verbally fired by the dad-monger.

It is in no way official though.
I went to higher management to get a hold of the situation, but I thought, **** it this place is nothing but problems.
I quit.

"You're done. Terminated. Get out."
Lol terminated? Done? You can't fire me. I'm out this *****. My life starts now. Yours gets worse.

I'm the 7th or 8th person to "quit" or get "fired" in the past month. This summer is going to suck for them.

Claims ahoy!

Lol.

I don't intend to ever apply for unemployment.

I'm looking at a job right now that pays a little more, is a little closer, a little easier (maybe a lot easier).

Working for WWM was so ****ty. Aside from the fact my boss was my ex-step dad, I was never guaranteed 40 hour weeks so pretty much all winter I was living of 500-700 a month with 15-30 hour work weeks.
Summer is great for hours, but it's back breaking labor.

I had seniority over a lot of the newer guys but the boss was always undermining it and holding me down. He never got my driver's file assembled like he kept saying he would, he never got around to my CDL training (ie raises), he gave work priority to newer guys, and I was always underestimated because of my size even though I can both lift more and haul longer distance than bigger guys. I can lift like 180lbs on a 138lb frame.

June 1st was my year review, or was supposed to be, maybe they don't give reviews there, but I didn't see any chance for me to move up or take any steps towards financial independance so I just said that's enough. I'm fed up with this place.
I feel like a slave working for them.
I'm going to start pooling money back into my savings which is almost empty. I think I have like $120 in there. Then I'll drop 1G on certifications and tests for both CDLs and IT certs like A+, MCSE and whatever.

My ambition just kicked in.

I hear you can make out pretty nicely driving oil trucks in Alaska, 18 wheelers. Be worth getting your CDL.

Ive been in a bit of a job quagmire myself the passing winter. I was working at a fabrication shop untill I was let go due to the fact my boss couldnt afford to keep me Had a hard hard time getting a new job. This particular area has no jobs at all untill summer kicks in (Damn tourism)
Didnt help that my other job, a convience store chain well known to the NJ PA area that will remain unnamed, was really really giving me the dick. I Have been working there for just over 3 years now, and it worked pretty good as a part time while I was in high school kinda thing, but when push came to shove they wouldnt give me the hours I needed ( 4 hours a week?!?!) That plus they kept firing me for no reason. I had lost my job there 3 times in 2 months, two were circumstances that werent my fault and the other happened to be a freak incident.
Now I've used my ambition and experience in related fields to get a job at a local body shop. Great plus sides to it are that I get more than enough hours a week (10 hours a day, 5 days a week) and Im learning alot,and itll be one hell of a resume builder... but the huge..HUGE bad thing is the pay rate..... 6.50 an hour. Even considering Im an apprentice with technically no experiance or education, thars just slavery rates. That being said I have to keep my other two jobs (The inconvenience store and also a shoe store) so I can almost afford to pay my car insurance and my fair share of the mortgage.Going to inquire about a raise on monday, so that hopefully I can quit that inconvenience store.....

Oh crap, sorry, was I rambling again? Either way, youll get into a job that will actually take you somewhere. Just keep your eyes open

Good luck Nick.

If you use your ex-step dad as a reference be very careful - sometimes people say those things but don't really mean it. It could be a way for him to maintain 'control' of you and keep track of the places you apply to and whether you get the job or not!

He's not that kind of person. He's a good guy. He's just an asshole sometimes.

But so am I.

I can trust him.
