So much bias

Well, where do i begin…when you think and are made to think that your are safe, YOU ARE NOT! that is what happened to me at a well known law firm that does personnal injury. I gave them my all, sometimes staying late and coming in on holidays. The girls there were very contradicting and gossipers. I was the total opposite. They talked about everyone in the building, but themselves, as if they were a gift to that lawfirm. They were engulfed in their work and expected that from everyone else. The job was full of stress and deadlines, but i liked the suspense, the manager and I got along well, so i thought i was safe. Little did I know that one of the girls had enough power to get me fired. One month before I got fired, they were purposely finding things to accuse me with, that had no merit, but careless me went ahead and signed a lease to a new house TWO weeks before those heartless people threw me out, mind you they knew I just signed a lease so that my son and I can get out of my mothers tight home.

Don’t ever get comfortable in a place and always keep your resume up to date because people never warn you, and they don’t care.

    I can relate to being let go from a law firm. I was fortunate to find a job in a law firm after being laid off from a vendor during the early spring of this year. My job for working at the firm was short lived, as I was let go by the firm a couple of weeks before my probationary period of three months was up. I never received a verbal or written warning about my work performance. I was told that I was let go due the lack of confidence the attorneys had in my work. It sucks, that no one was honest enough with me to let me know I was doing something wrong in the first place. I feel your pain.

    I can relate to what you are saying. I just got laid off this week. No warning or any sign. I worked for a small software company and management even told us we were doing well. My former boss calls to tell me that they are downsizing due to the economy. I have now learned that you should never let your guard down, always keep looking even if you think your job is safe. I agree with you that you should never get comfortable in a place.
