Update on my job
Shortly after my last post, I received a letter stating that I had a contract with my job (at the USPS). Needless to say, I was overjoyed! Since it was for the rest of the year, I figured that I would be working for them for at least that long.
However, I couldn't have been more wrong! Even though I worked hard at my job, they decided to let me go...a few days before my probation was up. Why? The reason given was because I did not "pick up the pace". That's what I was told anyway. Hmm, I don't know how fast they wanted me to go, but I've gotta say that I worked a heck of a lot faster than a lot of the career employees that worked there. *doh*
It's funny, I was actually told by a few of the career employees on more than one occasion to slow down. I can only guess that someone there didn't like the fact that I was willing to work so hard.
As crazy as that may sound, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if that was the case. It's happened with this company before, back when I got another employee in trouble for making her look bad by showing up to work every day (she on the other hand goofed off and played hooky a lot) . However, with her being a career employee she was able to keep her job. They just moved her to a different location is all. As for me? Since I wasn't a career employee they wound up terminating me. *doh* lol
