Well it finally hit me.... I got laid off today.

They laid off our data entry last week. And today the rest of my team (well, technically, my sales agent is in Sacramento right now and he'll be gone as soon as his plane lands...). My whole team is gone. My boss will get demoted and transferred to a sister company doing a position lower than mine was. Economy was so bad that our team couldn't stay afloat so now we are fucked.

Now, my house is bringing in no income because my other half was laid off 3 weeks ago with 5 other co-workers.

There is a 6-week waiting period for unemployment too. This really fucking blows...

I'm so sorry to hear that. I've been lucky so far myself, but I have friends that are experiencing the same thing you are. Best of luck, hope things get better for you SOON.

Luckily, I have good references there... I suppose that's something to be positive about...

You should consider asking for a letter of recommendation from your previous employer if you were let go through no fault of your own. Its the least they could do. If your boss is being transferred and the Sales person you worked with is being let go, you can have all the references you want from there and it won't help much if they can't get a hold of anyone.

I keep in touch. Those who stay will keep the same email address and work cell numbers. Its a big company, but ours was a sister company that got screwed over...

Operations.

Material planning, Inventory control, management of production schedule and because our team was so small, sales and marketing and customer service. Basically, I ended up doing every job for the company at some point. If its something that needs to be done to run a company/ manufacturer, I've done it.

Miss B, I'm really sorry to hear that, it seriously sucks...try to stay positive, things WILL get better (this coming from a person who lives in a country where every 15 years there's a crisis and everyone loses everything...so, I know how sucky the situation is for you guys right now)
You seem like an intelligent, proactive person so I really hope You get a new (better :)) job soon!!

I'm sorry B, common sentiment I know, but there it is. Good luck, I know finding a job is always hardest when you don't have one currently. I hope it works out for you.

If you want a quick fix, rentals are going fucking crazy. I am finishing up my license to cash in on this shit. Not sales mind, just rentals. Class doesn't take long for the license, mine was 2 weeks. So just to throw that out there...

Ya, I imagine rentals are crazy... No one can afford so may as well rent.

I actually did take a course and got certification for property management/ leasing whatnot like... 5-6 years ago. Interviewed a few places but never got far with it. (no place was hiring near me and all my interviews were 4-6 hours away and live on site didn't work out with how low they'd actually pay me so I went on to other ventures...)

*bump

No such luck. :(

For shits and giggles, I applied for Vice President of Operations at the company where my son's grandma works. She would shit herself if I ever became her boss... Don't think it'll go anywhere, but why not...

We just hired someone like this about 2 weeks ago. She is in charge of scheduling manpower to the different airplanes we are working on among other things. If she flops, you should send your resume in.

Cool, I'll keep that in mind.

I haven't been around much. My computer's wireless card just divebombed into shitsville. Yesterday, I threaded a freakishly long usb cable through the old ducting of my house to the router in the basement. So I should be ok for now.
