Well here is my story. I just started school this Monday for the Process Plant Tech Program. I had my orientation last friday so I took a day off of work. And yes my boss knew that I took the day off. Right... So when I called my job site and told my boss that I can't work my old hours he started to trip. He told me this is a problem. I told him if we can compromise a new schedule for me. HE said that wasn't his problem and not his duty to change my schedule. Then he started sayin, "Why are you doing this too me?" I asked him what I did? Then he talks about how he got me the hours I wanted and blah blah blah secret clearance. And as he was talking I'm thinking to myself this won't end to great. I stopped his conversation and gave full detail about my free program for school. Yea I have a free ride for school and plus GI bill on the side. He started to laugh sarcastically. I told him, "sir, Im putting my education first." then he stops me and says "for YOU its your education that comes first. But for ME its Money." So I hung up the phone after.

Wow fuckin bastard had the nerve to say that. I know money is important. But he didn't take consideration to the hours I pulled for him when he needed me to pull some of the shifts. He never even told me himself if I can take some shifts. He always told my other co workers to ask me if I can do some hours. Oh well... by next year I'll be making near 30 bucks an hour. wow... my boss was a jerk.

School should always come first, if you want to go.

super asshole boss for sure.

I think you can consider that either or on the quit or fired. :)

I wouldn't consider that you got fired unless he tells you so. But he is a prick! For him to say that he cares about "Him getting money" and not about you getting your education, is just damn low.

Well he said if I can't work the hours he asked me, I'll be terminated from the job site.

ok i am drunk so i might ramble but there is always someone higher then he is and i bet if you talk to them they can help you out. he is just being a dick because you put him in a tight spot to cover your hours now but most companies that i know would rather want a worker to go to school and work to further their career. some places will even pay for your schooling and i know you don't need that but it just seems that your boss is being all butt hurt because you want to make a better future for yourself and not an easier life for himself. you know whats important and anyone that stands in your way just show them the finger!!!!

^^ exactly how I feel man. I remember my Co workers going to school and one of them had to quit school because he couldnt change his schedule for work. What stinks is that he also said... You dont work around us. WE work around you. It's fuckin gay man. That co worker of mine is now Fired from the Job. It's only a temp job for me anyways. I wasn't gonna stay with that company. Its shady. I was with them back in 2002 and then I joined the army. I promised myself not to go back when I got back from the military. Boy was I wrong. And now Im out of it again.

whatever you do, dont assume things... * If you get/got fired, you are entitled to unemployment benefits from the state. *If you "quit", or are classified as a voluntary leave, then you get nada... * Either way, clarify your employment status with either your boss or the HR dept if you have one. * Good luck with whatever you choose to do!

if you havent been to work in 3 days, in the state of california thats called job abandonment, aka you quit... so now they dont have to fire you.

which means no unemployment.

just fyi

Best money I ever made was after I got out of the Corps...unemployment (E-5), VA disability, G.I. Bill, and Financial Aid. Get your education bro.

Fo sho Can't wait till the checks come in! And why would I stay? I wouldn't stay in a damn job that doesn't even care about my education. So some of you guys would rather risk a free education and work? Give me a break, if you guys were in my shoes you'd say fuck yo boss too.

My boss said this.... If you can't work those hours, We Will Terminate You. And i asked him I can still be on call.. and he said... thats not good Enough for me. I didn't quit I asked him for different hours or just be on call. He didn't want it so he cut me off.

man It would be nice to walk away with a feeling that you don't have to work for the rest of your life...but nowadays be humble of what you have. No Big company is gonna work around your "WOrld" because your hours are not working or you're not given weekends off? Don't be surprise they pull "SANCHO" off the street selling flowers too take your place or some kid right off of High school making "YOUR" $30 dollar an hour :2funny: Don't get me wrong about Education becuz I Have little ones myself but no way in hell will I let my PRIDE get in da way to ruin it for their future...Good Luck on collecting checks from everyone out here in SOCAL knowing we are filling your pockets with our TAX money while you whine about hours not working out for you O0

^^ actually im not gonna cry like you and do unemployment. I have a kid on the way. This School will help me feed my family once I get done with it. And if you don't know what it is. I'm goin to school to find work moron. You think Imma just be on a dead end job with no advancement within 5 years. The job i had didnt even have vacation pay. Yea job is important. But a career is what I'm goin for. The school Im in is FREE. Its a FREEEEE program for Veterans. Whos Goin to Pass up FRREEEEEE schooling or would you rather get paid 12 an hour pay with no benefits or vacation pay? Not only that I'm getting the GI bill. G I bill isnt gonna go towards the school either its gonna be my money. You know why? Cuz the damn Program is Free!!

And if I was to get unemployment who's to say you are goin to stop me? And I wasn't whining about hours. I just couldnt work those hours. I still pay taxes too asshole. If you havent given to your community or your country I say you should stfu aquilar45. And if you have... well then... fuck you im goin to school for free. Peace.

you must be gay giving your dick away. You- penis hungry? How did I get owned? Things didn't go my way? Yea it didn't but you know what, I'm still getting free education and getting paid at the same time. You are an idiot sir. Yes sir an idiot. I was just writing my story on how I was terminated from work and couldn't believe my ex boss basically said Money is important than my education. I'm pretty sure he was in my shoes long time ago doing what ever he can to survive. Thought older people are wiser and should know whats up. The only one butt hurt was my ex boss because he was panicking when I told him and he couldn't find anyone else to replace. So now my ex co worker is making more money. See I still help people who need hours too.
