    Just like peak comes every year we have Jan - March when they will follow everyone around and fire as many as they can to set an example. I've heard of a few being fired this week. Follow the methods.

    After peak it's nitpick season and the return of the flavor of the week.

    The terminations that we have had thus far this year have all been justified.

    Billy Ray God, help us all.....

    Only 7 weeks into the year at a small center....

    How many terminations have there been?

    3. 1 guy tore up a yard and didn't call it in. He came back after spending a week or so at home. The other 2 were alcohol related (off duty) and it will be a while before either one of them comes back.

    Fired for what exactly? There are a buttload of methods. We can't follow them all 100%. We aren't robots. They have to prove blatant and continuous disregard for methods. Nitpicking isn't going to cut it.

    They have learned not to nitpick me, because I will over exaggerate everything they nitpick about.

    You don't get fired for DWI, here. You work inside for a set amount of time, then return to driving.

    That is for the first one. Both of the drivers were fired for their second one.

    The only term I've heard about here was a guy that had alcohol on his breath when he came in the morning. I don't know why you'd even think about coming in under the influence (or even a few hours removed from drinking)... Yeesh.

    We've had guys on their second but when brought back they have to agree to random piss test. Most of them don't make it past a few randoms.

    Depends if u already had one previously and signed the "last chance agreement ".....

    rod retired and happy

    I'm sure after some of our "Thirsty Thursday" nights out 3/4 of our center could have been fired the next morning if they had given a breath test----that goes for our management too. (I know----it's not like that anymore)
