Can you get fired for working slow?

  1. In preload? I'm always reading on here to work slow, my drivers tell me to work slow. I'm getting pressured by my sup to work fast, the stupid :censored2: dispatcher always comes to my set to rush me.

    Don't move so slow that everyone else is forced to catch your :censored3:, but don't kill yourself.

    It's not that you can get fired for working slow, it's placing a target on your back by doing so. So while you won't get fired for that, they'll always be hounding you and looking for the opportunity to get rid of you. Just work normally. Work an honest day.

    They cannot fire you over production, I would say to work at a pace that you are comfortable with. Don't let your sups intimidate you, fair days work fair days pay. This is why we have a union.

    You're not in high school anymore, so grow up and do an honest day's work. Don't let the d-bags pressure you into a work slowdown. The ones telling you to go slow, will be the first to throw you under the bus when they get into trouble and the last to help you when you need it.
  11. You will never get fired for lack of production.
    But don't ever slow down because your coworkers Want u be to mediocre like them. Always put in your BEST work and you'll always b fine. Remember, if you do a great job, you can move up faster. I was in ur shoes a few years ago & look at me now. U can work slow and stay as as laborer or work hard and move up to management..

    If you go to panel and production is one of the reasons you're there, you can absolutely be fired for it and this is now a fact, 10 years ago I would say not a chance in hell, but now you're playing Russian roulette with your job.

    Yes look at you now. You're a "self proclaimed " eBay power seller who sells manuals on line and probably is a little bitch of a preloader.

    We should all be so fortunate to be as awesome as you.

    Great job on being #3. I was #1 the board last week but mine was telematics, I'm sure they are praying that my name does not stay on the board, and as much as I hate to admit it, I'm sure I won't be able to find another 1.17 mile drive that I will have to back out of. But anyways, great job on scoring #3!

    Lists, bringing you bottles of water, pats on the back, then rushing you...
    They are playing you.
