I got hired as a driver helper for the xmas season and said I could start working last friday (12/14). I got a call that morning asking me to work, and I told them I can’t due to being sick, but I should be able to work on monday. It’s now monday (12/17) and I never received a call. Did they fire me or did they just not need me today? Is there somebody I should call? Thanks.

Can somebody please at least try to be helpful? I came here to ask a question not have people * on me for getting a job
I am being helpful. Seriously, you got hired as a seasonal helper a job that will be done on Dec 24th, you missed the first day they called you at this point most if not all drivers already have a steady helper who shows up. You will be lucky to get called again and if you do trust me it will be hardly worth your time. Move on.

OK, I'll try....

Geez dude, Peak is just about over. I think you blew your opportunity. They're probably not going to bother with you again, no-one calls in sick during Peak. You wouldn't come in during Peak AND it was your first day?

Good luck, my friend. Hopefully, they'll need help bad this week and give you another shot.

Do you need an air compressor or tire gauge

You have to call the building and ask if they need you. Helper jobs only last about 2 weeks anyways.
