How many times have you guys been fired and why?
if you havent been fired at least once , you aint .
I heard you ain't s h i t if don't at least get fired once
Been threatened multiple times, they never even made an attempt to go through with discipline. It's all horse , you only get fired for stealing, failing drug test and dishonesty.
if you do a search it will take a month to read all the stories.
was actually fired for not answering a 72 hr notice to return to work. called into office to be walked out until i called in the supe that i informed the week before that there was a death in the family and i was 600 miles away attending the funeral.
payroll knew about it because i was paid for it.
never got an apology.
We had a 1-day strike many years ago at my building. I saw a driver get fired 2 times in 1 day. lol.
I have never been fired but I was discharged once. 2 weeks off served as my disciplinary action before I was allowed back.
Only time I was fired was when I delivered pizza as a kid. I made flinging a thick crust meat pie fashionable long before Breaking Bad was ever thought of.
Never came close to being fired, discharged, or suspended. I just came in ever day, did my job,
and ignored them. Staying accident free and injury free helped alot.
you are such an angel.
I was told I sucked and was "least best " at almost everything ,, but still here , never fired ,,
Suspended for 1 week. For picking up a letter box 10 mins early. And 1 day for leaving the keys in the truck. Back when I was young and dumb. Now I methods them to death. Also follow Orion 100%.
Had a "working termination".
Does that count?
Weren't we all fired during the 96 strike?
It was 1997 and no, we weren't all fired. We were locked out.
Was that the walkout over over-70's? We were told we were all fired that day. Business as usual the next day.
Been there, done that.
Actually, it was kind of a relief. Everybody in my center had been fired/terminated at least once. When it happened to me, the pressure was off.
There's a guy in my area that's been fired 11 times, all for petty stuff
We got some letter read to us on the picket line. Something about being let go?
Wow, I can't remember now. I'm going to have to plead senility on that one. I had an afternoon start time then and there was a picket line set up. I went to turn in and the steward wagged his finger at me and just shook his head no. I kept driving. Drove to the nearest gas station and called in. (before cell phones) They ordered me to come in anyway, and I refused, so I was probably fired that day, too, just didn't realize it. lol.
This whole aspect at UPS is still weird to me. Never before have I seen a place where being fired/rehired was such a normal, common and nonpermanent thing.
