Today was my day off, and I recieved a call from work. Due to massive cutbacks, I have lost my job.
I worked for American General in the customer service area. Our department was cut from 30 to 10 today. 2 of the 3 supervisors lost their jobs.
I liked this job. I made decent money, had good benefits and the employees had a feeling of family. I will miss going in there every day. I cried when I cleaned my desk out.
I did get a decent severance package and they are going to help with job placement. But it won’t be the same. This was the first job I have had that I can truly say I liked.
Still feeling a little sick to my stomach and numb. This sucks.
Oh, damn that sucks. I’m so sorry.
I hope you find something as good or better, soon.
I’m really sorry to hear about your job. I wish you the best of luck in finding something soon.
And, if you need to vent, this is the place.
Check out this thread. You’ll find some good company.
I am sorry to hear your news. Sending out a wish that you are between jobs for a very short time. (Just enough to enjoy, not enough to hurt your finances too much!)
Thank you… I put in an appearance there now.
I still feel like I am in shock. One minute yesterday, I had just gotten home from taking my puppy to the vet and was talking to a friend on the phone, and the next, call waiting was beeping in and it was work, telling me I no longer had a job. It is a lot to digest.
I am thankful that my job is as safe as any I can think of. But if it will make you feel better the universe has taken a giant dump on the rest of my life.
