I literally just survived The Purge @ my job
6thApr 4, 2019
- They laid off like 70% of the people from my old department. I got hired in June when they added a 2nd & 3rd shift. Over time the company started to flop and couldn't handle all the contracts they ordered. Rumors were always swirling that they'd fire most of us. I saw the hidden advantage (unlike Michaela in Game Changers) and applied for a new position and got it. I just switched departments 2 months ago.
Rumors started swirling around again this week that they were going to terminate all of 3rd shift & some 2nd shift. Today they were told they were going to have a meeting, and they split them up into 2 groups. They told them in the 2 separate meetings that they were going to be laid off. The group that was staying weren't allowed to go say by to the leaving group. I was at the meeting watching it go down (I was with the staying group) and ditched when I realized the leaving group wasn't coming back.. they were collecting their unemployment papers & being walked out the door. I ran out and said goodbye to all my old co-workers including my work bff (from previous blogs if you remember) that HELPED get me my new position.
I'm so distraught and emotional right now and pissed off too.
