Remember that "good position with a decent company"? I was summoned into work this afternoon for a "counseling session" wherein I was terminated. Yeah.
Back in December I made a couple of minor mistakes. I was called in for a counseling session, written up and told that the company really wanted to retain my services, so I should focus on improving my work and improving my interaction with guests and coworkers. I've worked hard, and I thought I was doing well. I haven't heard a word of negativity from anyone in the nearly six weeks since my write-up.
I was fired, but the company won't fight if I apply for unemployment. Ironically, the GM, who handled my termination, said that he'd be happy to provide me with a reference. No one who's ever fired me has given me a reference. It's a little thing, but I'll take it.
I'm in the process of updating my resume, and I've got Craigslist open in another tab. I've already seen a couple of positions that might be for me.
