As the title says, a very merry belated Merry May 17th to you all. I know it’s been a while since I’ve stopped by, and I’d love to say that this is a sign of things to come, but I can promise nothing. Real life has taken over my life. Since last I was here, I was promoted to manager at EB, and then that was taken from me (a loss prevention guy called me and said that my application wasn’t filled out in full when I was re-hired, thus my application was falsified, thus he took my job, and now I’m unemployed.)
Basically, I came in to work on Thursday, having just started my second month as a manager at EB, when my district manager showed up. He didn’t know what was going to happen, either, he just came to help me with my inventory counts. About 10:30, we get a call from corporate, which he takes. He talks to this guy at loss prevention for about half an hour, then I talk to him, about my application that I’d filled out a year before, of all things. He said it wasn’t fully filled out, I said that was crazy, etc. He says he’ll call us back, and he’ll need to speak to the DM. He calls back, the DM talks to him. The DM then basically bitches him out, saying I’m one of the best employees we have, then he hangs up. He looks at me and says “bad news, man. Real bad news.”
However, I’ve learned that in the aftermath, 7 people put in their two weeks notice in our district. 11 people just straight-out quit, including two managers. Basically, the shit hit the fan because I was fired. Which is good, cause I was just about to get used to the $34,000/year that they’d promised me. I was also planning on making a big donation to RPGC this paycheck… >_<
Well, I got a new apartment (as visible in those shots), and I’m struggling to make it by, hoping to have a new job by the next time rent rolls around. Other than that, I was working 60+ hours a week as a manager of an EB. Now I just kinda sit around and hang out with whichever of my friends are in town.
Dude, that sucks about the job. I’ve been scrounging for a job at EB for a long time, and I’m patiently waiting til I’m 18 to pull it off. Being a manager sounds like a bomb ass job. How is it? Sucks you lost it though. But I’ll be sure about filling out my application.
It’s a bit too late to get anything reversed at this point. I’m just hoping that all the good references that I have within that company (some as high up as the corporate level, including the immediate boss of the guy who fired me) will be enough to get me a job decent enough to pay for this new apartment…
