Is there anything I can do about this?

    I was laid off last year after peak as a seasonal hire. I showed up everyday on time and worked quickly, did what I was told, and never complained. There were even times when I had to pick up slack for people not showing up or showing up late. My supervisor told me I would definitely be called back in by June/July 2013. I just called Human Resources and they told me my status is negative rehire and I would have to wait for corporate to investigate why. He couldn't give me a timeframe for the investigation. I remain skeptical that it will actually happen.

    I actually liked working there and was wondering what I could do about this if anything.

    Get in touch with your FT/PT sup and see if they'll put in a good word for you to reverse the negative hire, if you can. That will get things fixed a lot faster than waiting on HR to churn out e-mails. Other than that, there's not much else that can be done.

    You just saved a load of money on Tylenol or Advil, whichever is your preference. Read a few threads here. You will find the "liked working there" is like eating a giant bag of sunflower seeds. The first half of the bag is good, but by the time you've polished off the whole bag, the salt has burned the taste buds off your tongue, and you've sworn off the seeds.

    The only difference is UPS burns hotter and much, much longer than salt.

    Sorry but this is what they do to seasonal help blow smoke up your butt and then send you on your way while they laugh the whole time that they got you to work like a dog.

    HR claimed to have no reason and said I have to wait find for corporate to investigate and find out why.

    if you can get a sup to put in a good word then you might be rehired but i have seen this twice before. one guy was a permanent
    and opted to move to another hub but quit during transfer he got lucky and was rehired after sup put in a good word to hr.
    the second guy was also a seasonal hire but he was unable to get rehired they also didnt give him an explanation.

    I think they're selling you a bill of goods. I'm not saying there isn't a no rehire status on your file, but I seriously doubt corporate is going to take the time to investigate the reasons why. Not for a seasonal employee...it's easier to simply hire another one.
