How many people get fired at some point in their lives?

 Pages 1 2 NEXT
 

And note that I don't mean laid off because of some circumstances, but fired as in "we don't want you anymore". I know that few people stay in the same job their entire life, but how many experience getting fired?

Google says that for a while, 20 million layoffs a year as the norm. In the past two years it's dropped down to about 10 million for whatever reason.

Personally I've only been fired once. But that was because I reported that employees were stealing from the store (Since I was the only person who worked there that ever cared about actually taking inventory). Well, turns out, the reason nobody was taking inventory was because the manager was enabling them to steal! So, fired. But nothing of value was lost.

I've been fired once, and "fired" too.

First was because just over two grand had gone missing from the safe. We all theorised that it could of only been two people but there was zero in the way of proof. It was one of those situations where we were waiting to see who was going to be thrown under the bus for any infraction they could dig up since the two suspected were the manager (who also happened to be the district manager) and his deputy. Turns out it was me, which wasn't that surprising since I had never really gotten along with the boss. They managed to get me for selling a unit that I had beta tested before the two year restriction had been lifted, I was two days early.

The other was for a position that had over-hired on a 12 month contract and suddenly had just over twenty new staff and no work for them. Not a bad deal as I was getting a full time wage for doing about 4 hours of basic clerical work per day, but they made it quite plain after a few weeks that they were going to force everyone out that they could and started throwing every imagined infraction at us that they could. I had made myself bullet proof in the way that I performed but got sick to death of needing to defend myself against stupid accusations, made sure I was the last to quit or get shoved though.

I've been fired twice, and both for the same reason: a co-worker continuously ran me into the ground, I couldn't cope because I have bipolar disorder, I became an emotional train wreck as a result of the abuse I faced, and got fired for breaking into tears far too often.

Having a mental illness really pisses me off. Everyone expects me to "buck up and deal with it" because THEY can, without realizing that I have unbalanced brain chemistry that leaves me susceptible to breakdowns despite taking my meds regularly. Those breakdowns are pretty much guaranteed to happen when I'm being mistreated for long periods of time. To me, it's as damaging as keeping a hand in a pot of mildly boiling water in which you don't get burned right away, but will melt your flesh off after a few hours of prolonged exposure.

Oh yeah, in both instances, my employers KNEW I had bipolar disorder, KNEW that it's legally classified as a disability, and yet did nothing to the person who was aggravating my condition. Total bullshit.

I was fired, although technically I was "asked to resign." Well, I did, and then my boss evidently still told people I was fired, so he broke his part of the bargain. So I can say I was fired more or less because I was/am disabled. And when I started asking for better treatment, like not having to do the work of 10 men, when I wasn't getting paid to do said work, then suddenly they had a problem with me. And the next thing I knew I got fired.

It was okay though, because it all worked out better for me in the end, I'm in England now, and I'm much happier than I was in the States. But it still makes me mad. Especially when he used my PTSD and my disabilities against me to make me think I'd never get another teaching job again. It was pretty cruel.

In the current job market it's rare for a person to have the same job throughout their whole life. Statistics says that most people will probably change jobs sometimes in their life (although it doesn't necessarily mean that it's because one got fired).

Anyway I haven't been fired, yet.

I was fired exactly twice, the first time from a car lot (I hated the job and was terrible at it) and the second time from my pizza-delivery job. The head manager's poor scheduling had left us with just me as the driver on a Friday night; deliveries were backlogged by upwards of two hours, and I didn't get to leave until three in the morning. The next day I told the manager exactly what I thought of his management skills, and he fired me on the spot.

His replacement hired me back a month later, so I think it's obvious who was in the right.

Fired once from cold calling sales job.

I almost hugged the person doing it.

Sales can be a harsh job at the best of times, but cold calling is horrible for all involved.
Some people seem to thrive doing it, relishing each door and answer.
I couldn't ever step into that mind set.
Always felt like I was intruding and it must have radiated from me like a stench as the whole experience was awkward for everyone involved.
I'm not sure who was more grateful when the door closed each time, them or me.

In short.
Cold calling door to door is hell.
I would swap places with sysiphus in an instant, still feel like I'd got the better end of the deal and finish each day with more of a feeling of progress than I ever felt working for that sales team.

While nothing is official yet, I think I'm being shoved out the door. As a contract instructor at a smaller university, I technically get rehired every semester when they offer me a new contract. However, the head of the university retired not long ago and there has been a major shake-up in the management over the various departments. The head of my campus was unceremoniously fired (She was informed on a Friday evening that she could either retire early or transfer into a dead-end job until her retirement kicked in. Her answer was due the following Monday and she had worked for that department for 25 years. Dress it up in whatever sweet language you want, she was fired.)

After the new department head was hired, it became fairly obvious to all of us that everyone hired under the former head was getting eased out the door. Didn't matter how good of a teacher you may have been, you were hired under her watch? Time for you to go.

It sucks, but I've seen the same pattern take place in waaaaaaaaaaay too many circumstances (and not just in academia). It really sucks.

I know what that's like, because I pretty much have the same thing for the most part. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder about 4 years ago and tend to lean more on the depression side than the manic side. I've also got bad anxiety problems from a life time of bullying, be it cyber or real life, and I hate it when people tell me to get over it just because they can. I've noticed that a lot more frequently over the years as I have a hard time managing things and feel that everyone is attacking me or is speaking ill of me. Meds don't always help either. I fear the day I may get fired because I'm having a hard time controlling my emotional state, and it just puts me more in a self-fulfilling prophesy that I can't seem to stop.

OT: I haven't been fired before, but I was almost once and it scared me due to said mental issues I have.

Fired once when I was 16 one summer. I was driving a delivery truck full of cakes and donuts from the bakery to the various retail locations scattered around the city. Third day on the job, there was an incident that involved me carrying 6 cakes stacked on top of one another. I tripped, dropped them all, ruined them and had to schlep back to get new cakes, etc. The next day they told me that I could work to the end of the day but that was it.

The being let go part was the only thing that really pissed me off. I had a better job lined up at a machine shop and was going to quit the delivery gig anyway. Come to think of it, I ended up quitting the machinist job a few weeks later as well to work at a factory (one making cookies and cakes no less). That was a strange summer.

I haven't been fired yet, well at least not what I consider 'fired'.

My first job was at a small, reasonably successful restaurant. At one point the owner decided to open another location downtown. After a year or so, he wasn't making enough to keep both open so he closed the one I was working at. Most of us were just out of a job. There were no meetings to fire us, barely an announcement that we were closing, just no workplace to come to. Later the downtown location went under.

I'd say we were 'let go', but I suppose it could be considered 'fired' too.

A few times, actually...

Wait, the REAL first time, I worked at a corner store. I was pretty young at the time, but we all got along. I've always been a chivalrous sort, always believing that when it came to abuse, I brought zero respect to the abuser. In this case, I had to comfort my boss' wife one day while I had to watch the store.

Asa result, I hardly said a word to my boss. Things started getting stolen. His retarded cousin (Who I trained) started opening pornographic magazines and reading them while on job. Eventually,the store lost so much money, that one day I went to work, I found my boss locking up and sayin' "Oh, You're fired. I'm closing. C'ya."

Well, shit.

Still young and stupid as fuck, I worked at a gas station. The contract opened up with the Quote-un-quote "If there's a drive-away, it's coming from your paycheck." I stated that "I will sign this, but this worthless piece of paper is not a legally binding contract. Any attempt to take what's mine will be met with immediate and harsh legal force."

Yep. Not a month in, Gas was stolen. I was fired. Never got my last pay.

Double shit.

3rd run-in. Staples. Easytech. I was still in nerd collage getting my diploma for systems administration, after getting programming and finding no work. Well, fucking duh. There's no work if you drink instead of getting certs. (Lesson. Fucking. Learned.) I made a few mistakes, and stressed out a bit. Unfortunately, one of those mistakes cost the store a penny. I was demoted just before I got my work-term. I stated I had to take some time, and that I wanted to remain with the store once my paid internship ended. (Paid! They exist!!) I later got my ROE in the mail. They did not respond to my calls.

By the way, Staples Easytechs are NOT A+ Certified at the Staples I worked at. If you EVER get help from Staples Easytechs, DEMAND you see that employee's certs!!

Finally... The last time. Which was pretty recent, and a pretty fucking dumb move on my part. I worked at Tim Hortons! YAY! :D This is after working two years at Superstore, and after working three years at a reputable call center.

I'm used to a fixed break schedule. Or taking my own breaks. Someone saying "Go, take a 15 now." Is pretty alien to me. Especially when I work an 8 hour shift with only one break.

Guess who said things like, "I'm due for my lunch soon." and "I'm 6 hours in. I'm taking a break now. I'm hungry as fuck."

Guess who said something about that illegal break schedule?

Guess who stated that that's illegal?

Not to mention. Tim Hortons is fucked. Stating that there's something wrong with me, when I said "I'm not trusting you to have access to all of my belongings in an unlocked locker. Keys, Wallet, Phone, Watch." When the uniform is completely devoid of pockets. Why? Employees can steal food. Said that I can't be trusted, yet at the same time, I'm supposed to trust you, on my first fucking day, to just leave the notable amount of cash in my wallet just fucking laying there. Out of sight, while I slaved for 6 hours. Are you fucking damaged, Miss. Barkhouse?!

Shortest job ever. Three days of work, "How we work, just... Isn't compatible with a few people."

I should have said that, "Kim... It's not compatible with the goddamn Nova Scotian labor law. Suck me sideways you fucking snake." But I didn't. And I regret this.

That being said, I HAVE held down jobs. I've just been fired a lot too. Shush.

But it sounded like a delicious summer. I also imagined you falling face first on those cakes.

My mind is an incredible place sometimes.

Fired from Walmart due to refusal to work higher pay jobs for 2-3 pay grades less.

I've been fired one in my life. I was accused of assaulting a woman half my size, who I weighed like two hundred pounds more than, by violently slamming her head into the counter. I wanted to point out that if someone my size assaulted someone her size in that way, it would have at least left a mark, but "you should see how much damage I could really do!" doesn't seem smart.

I'm not even sure they bought it. The person they had escort me out of the building? Another woman half my size who I probably had two hundred pounds on. But still, I was fired, and that was the reason.

Some small bit of satisfaction, though, in that the woman who claimed I did it later got jail time for grand theft at the same store. I wasn't above a little Snoopy dance when I heard about that.

Edit: I should note that I probably would have fought it, but it was a shitty job I had been planning on quitting in a month or two in the first place. So I finished out the school year, and got another bad job that paid me too little to deal with people, but at least didn't have anyone insisting I tried to kill them.

Man, if I got fired for being bipolar, I would be piiiiiiiiiiiissed.

i was fired twice. but i admit, it was enterly my fault... almost

The first time, i was 18, i was a waitress, and my life was way out of control, i was addicted to various substances, and i stole money from he restaurant to pay for it. i did it, i admit. my boss was kind enough to not call the cops. i've cleaned my life since then.

ten years later i was fired from Vest Buy for getting in too late too many times. true, however, 3/4 of those time was a less than 2 minutes late, and a good chunk of the more than 2 minutes lates was because i was lunching with one of the manager who apparently didnt really care that we would be late.
Also they normally give you two verbal warnings, then a written warning then they fired you. but they took all the times i was late, and give me the two verbals and the written at the same time, which wasnt a proper way to do it.
Then a few weeks later, i was late, as well as half the staff because of a particulary heavy traffic morning. harsh, but i was really 5 minutes late.
The most humiliating thing at that time, is that once you're fired, you are automatically see as a potential threat for some reasons. I was a supervisor, so most of the employes knew me. after leaving my boss office, i was escorted by the security staff to get my stuff, and then out of the store in front of everyone.

I've only been fired once. I was a substitute teacher at my old school, a catholic school to be precise. My boss didn't like me wearing anything that didn't have sleeves or looked normal. She also didn't like me trying to encourage kids by making cookies for their birthdays and stuff like that because that would me look less of an authority figure (their words precisely). So it got to the point I was laid off. I'm not a bit sorry about it. They paid me pennies and expected me to be a prude and a distant, careless person.

I have never been fired, but I probably should have been on at least several occasions. I worked at a climbing gym as an instructor and I am not good with very irregular shift schedules. Notably because I rarely am aware of what the date is, let alone when my shifts are. There was no easy chart to check, if I wanted to see what shifts I was signed up for I had to go to the gym and check it out.

Let's just say that I've missed several shifts and showed up really late for several others.

Actually, it's kind of amusing but I've never been hired through an interview. All of the jobs I've worked at have been someone coming up to me and asking if I wanted to do some work for them. Not going to complain about that because as one of my employer's said when they saw my resume, my resume is absolutely awful.

Oh wow, how did you end up getting on her bad side? I don't imagine she just goes up to employees doing that out of the blue

Meds or no meds, I hardly ever keep a job due to bipolar issues. Luckily I'm able to work for myself doing freelance PC tech support, unfortunately there's such an influx of "techs" that getting steady work is a bitch. Lucky for me most of the techs I've met are only semi-competent and end up screwing up things I get called up later to fix. So I understand a lot of what you're saying. Doesn't help that I've got social anxiety on top of that and being in public adds stress to my already taxed mental state.
Wish I could find meds that worked longer than 2-3 weeks before overwhelming me with side-effects.
So OT: Yeah I'd say I've been fired, I've also ragequit, walked out on a shift due to stress and intolerance of lazy work ethics (I'm intolerant, not lazy, I work my ass off), called in protesting abominable work conditions... all of which led to being fired.

My boss actually called me yesterday and wants to meet today for a coffée and talk about "my future in the company". I have no idea if this is a good thing or I'm getting fired. However, I've noticed that they've been hiring a lot lately in spite of there hardly being any work to go around for all of us current employees...

Edit: Got promoted, or something, rather. :D

I've never been fired.

The past job I had I left on my terms since I was accepted into a job I applied for. The place I left knew I was looking elsewhere for work so they were trying their damnedest to keep me around, and they even dangled a promotion in my face.

I don't think I'd handle being fired well. A friend of mine was fired recently and he was pissed. Granted, the reason he was fired was because the company was trying to save face, and threw him under the bus.

I got fired once. I was working at a pharmacy as a stock-boy and after 4 months I got fired. The official reason was because I wasn't interacting with costumers enough (despite the fact that I was when I was on the floor, but 80% of my work was in the back anyway so how was I supposed to interact with costumers anyway?), but I spoke with one of the employs I'd made friends with and apparently all the part-timers get fired 4 or 5 months into their work no matter how good they are due to the manager being too cheap to pay the raise that's mandatory at 6 months of work by corporate policy.

hakkarin:
And note that I don't mean laid off because of some circumstances, but fired as in "we don't want you anymore". I know that few people stay in the same job their entire life, but how many experience getting fired?

I was once fired for not attending a company Christmas party. And, to be clear, this was a "party" in the lunchroom during work hours. I had a headache, so I ate at my desk instead of with everyone else. This apparently pissed someone off.

I was also once "unhired" when a department director was replaced, and the new director cleaned house by "unhiring" everyone who had been hired by his predecessor. This was contract work, so it wasn't technically a firing, but I had worked there for several years when suddenly me and several of my friends and coworkers were were given no contract hours and a few weeks later got those letters you get when you apply to a job and you don't get it as if we'd never worked there at all.

Edit: Oh, wait! I've been fired two other times. Sort of.

Actually, in both cases I "quit without notice" - and so was "fired" for not showing up to the job I'd just quit.

The first time was a restaurant job I had in college. I'd been hired as a waitress/server, but then a new manager came in and decided to move me to the dish room. So, after six months of being out front waiting on customers, I was unceremoniously dumped in back and forced to scrub dirty pots and pans. Instead of getting to leave a half hour after we closed (at midnight), I was stuck there until 2 AM doing filthy dishes.

It wasn't the job I signed up for, so the next day I told the manager that she would move me back out to waitressing, or I wasn't coming back. She told me I had to give notice, so I gave two weeks notice and THEN called in sick every time I was supposed to work. And thus she "fired" me for not showing up. Good fucking riddance there.

The other time I was working a call center through a temp agency and after working there for a week I was showing early signs of getting a stomach ulcer - and, to be clear, I had no signs before the job. So I called the temp agency and said I couldn't go back due to medical reasons. They too pulled the notice thing, so again I called in sick to the job that was making me sick. Once again, that trick didn't work and I was "fired" from a job that I was refusing to go back to.

Edit 2: Oh shit, I just remembered another job I was fired from.

I was working as a secretary for a company that made parts for assembly lines. I really liked this job, but my - at the time - fiancee and I were leaving the area to go to grad school, so I'd given notice. And, unlike the examples above, I was actually working my two weeks because I liked the job and I liked the people there.

However, a week into my two weeks, I took a phone call from Kraft. The Kraft person wanted information I didn't have. I very politely told the person I did not have the information they needed and suggested they call back when the person who had the information they needed returned from lunch.

I thought nothing else about it until the next day when I was told that the person from Kraft, offended at being "given the run around" had called the president of the company and complained about me, personally, and to make Kraft happy, I had to be fired.

My boss reassured me that I would be paid for my full two weeks, even though I wouldn't have to work the last week, and that he'd give me a glowing recommendation.

So, by pissing off Kraft with my horrible politeness, I was "fired" with a week's paid vacation.

^^ Best firing ever.

The Almighty Aardvark:

Oh wow, how did you end up getting on her bad side? I don't imagine she just goes up to employees doing that out of the blue

Telling her she should actually work.

Apparently, I wasn't the last person she got fired by crying wolf, so it's quite possible she did do that sort of thing out of the blue.

You monster, I had assumed this was completely unprovoked. You're lucky you got off with just an accusation of assault after pulling a stunt like that

I've been involuntary let go three times, none of them officially firings though.

The first one was a part time job at my University, the project I was hired for ran way over time and budget and was eventually just dropped, letting all of us go.

The second one I worked as a draughtsman for an architectural company, but I was placed there through a different engineering firm. The architect was having money problems (not enough work) and I was the last (and most expensive) hire. I still had my "job" at the engineering firm I officially worked for though, so not really fired.

The third one was my last employer, they went bankrupt so we all lost our jobs.

D...Doesn't that count as bullying? Because it sure as hell sounds like bullying to me. Wow, that...just hearing that pisses me off to no end.

I love how some people seem to think that bullying doesn't count when adults are involved. Bullying on work places are things that happen, and it's probably far more common than people think. My aunt was apparently mistreated quite a lot at her old job. Now she's moved to South Africa with my uncle for 3 years, and apparently everyone at her job told her that "they'll miss her". Yeah, right.

Never been fired, but the closest I got was 'the choice'. Either have my hours severely cut down (to one four hour shift a week) or leave voluntarily. In my defence, I managed to hold my tongue, and NOT resort to the old 'you can't fire me, I quit!' thing (though how wonderful that would have been) and I basically told him I'd leave. I had another job lined up anyway, and it did actually save me the bother of having to quit.

I'm not a fan of confrontation, but the owner was an utter, sexist twat, with no respect for other people. I should never have taken the job in the first place. He told me at the 'interview' that for my first seven days I would be on a 'training wage' (to learn how to make toasted sandwiches!?) and would often come to stand in the kitchen during busy periods and stand in my personal space, getting in my way, then would blame me when food orders weren't prepped fast enough.

So imagine my joy when the place got done over a few times, and then closed down several months after I left.

Its hard to say for sure. If for now we take "Fired" to mean dismissed outside of a redundancy situation or organisational restructure then I would say, based on applications I used to review when I handled recruitment, on average one in every 4-5 people looked as if they had been dismissed at one time or another. It's difficult, especially if it was a long time ago because people will try to lie or disguise it, but you can usually patch it together.

Never been fired, but at my first job, a week before the end of my notice period (having already handed my notice in) my boss (rather exasperatedly at my young and somewhat miserable approach to my terribly paid but overly responsible job) said 'Why don't you just leave now?'. So I did.

I've had short-term contracts ended unexpectedly early, but that's the nature of the work.

My prior boss accused me of stealing from the petty cash fund after having put a requisition in to replenish the fund so we could buy much needed office supplies. My boss asks me "What happened to the money that I already put in there?" which was $200 4 months prior, $40 of which went to the lockbox to hold it in. I show my record of every single item that had ever been purchased on the petty cash fund with receipts and notes to justify the purchases; my boss asks again "But where the fuck did the money go?" as if producing every receipt for roughly $200 of expenditures over the course of 4 months wasn't sufficient to clear my name. I wasn't fired though, I quit (I suspect I was close to being fired); there were dozens of other issues I had with this company and this owner, this was pretty much just the straw that broke the camels back.

BeerTent:

His retarded cousin (Who I trained) started opening pornographic magazines and reading them while on job.

I chuckled quite a bit after reading this part. Did he also have a massive boner while reading them that he did not bother to hide from anyone?

I was hired by my manager, and then fired by the director within the best part of a month due to "not fitting the 3 year future plan of the company.".

They guy wanted to have exclusively 20+ y/o with experience working a minimum wage job, yet what he did not realise was that in 3 years time I would have been a 20+ y/o with 3 years of experience at the very same company and site. The manager kept me on for a few more weeks past being told to leave, and even gave me a bonus for putting up with the director. He is a nice guy.

I have been laid off from some shitty retail and fast food jobs because of budget but never actually fired for doing anything wrong. I always arrive on time, do whatever they ask of me (within reason) and keep to myself even if questionable practices are going on as it's none of my business and I'm there to get a paycheck and go the fuck home.

I suppose I could have been fired if my bosses had any spines but they would try that work overtime with no pay bullshit on me and I would refuse and if they didn't like it tough shit. They learned pretty quickly I wasn't a push over so they never asked me more than twice usually. Now that I think of it maybe I was fired.. but when I was laid off it was never after one of those incidents. Always been months after and out of the blue, usually after they ran the numbers for the year and had to make some cuts.

edit: In hindsight it wasn't my bosses that were dicks it was always the supervisors. Uppity brownnosers trying to make a career out of retail. I've been fortunate to always have good bosses that didn't fire you for no good reason. My supervisors would try to get me to work extra without pay so that they look better but I guess I knew they had no real power even though they would heavily imply that I'd be fired.

Never. I always quit my job. I would put up with all the abuse and shit thrown on me until i can find another job and then leave. I never gave my employer a reason to kick me out or to be dissastisified by me. It's not that I was on good terms with my last employer, i was demoted twice due to our conflict, and even if I insulted him on occasion he didn't want to part with my services that easily.

But then again, as I said, i easily work long hours and weekends and physical labor and everything employer demands. After all that much is stated in contracts over here (your job is that and that and that and anything else employers demand)
