@naangel55:  I’m so sorry!  That’s awful.  Sounds like this guy handled it really badly.  You never lay someone off in front of someone else… That’s just not fair!

Have you talked to your boss at the old location?  Maybe they have something for you?

If not, maybe this is a blessing in disguise, spurring you on to a better position.

Good luck, I know you’ll land on your feet πŸ™‚

Oh no. That is a sucky situation. I’d be bitter too! I hope you find something you like for your next job, even if it is a pay cut. Good luck!

Awww hon, I’m so sorry. I’m glad to hear you already have interviews lined up though. I hope you find something you love! It sounds like you’re being really proactive and that’s awesome.

Don’t write a letter to your GM because if you need a reference it’s going to reflect poorly. I know it sucks, I totally agree, but you’re just going to have to live with their decision and know that they really ended up screwing themselves by letting you go. Everything happens for a reason right?

That is terrible!  It should have been handled much more professionally than THAT!  I am glad to hear you have interviews lined up, which sounds promising!  Hopefully everything works out soon for you πŸ™‚

That’s terrible!  You should take comfort in the fact that you took the high road. I’m sure it will pay off for you!  They’ll be begging you back in no time, and you can tell them to suck it! πŸ™‚

I’m so sorry πŸ™ I got blindsided and laid off in April so I completely understand how you feel! I never thought it could happen to me. That’s great that you have contacts in the industry and already have an interview!

I’m so sorry!  That is such a horrible situation with him telling you in front of this other person and the fact that she is getting ready to leave bothers me so much!

That blows, I’m so sorry. Being laid off is NO FUN. But it’s great that you already have an interview which shows you’re obviously good at what you do. Keep us posted!

So sorry!  That sucks, especially with them keeping the girl that’s going to quit.  Maybe they would ask you back if she quits?  Not sure if you’d want to return after the way that was handled though.

Hopefully some good things come out of this.  I know it sucks to be laid off, especially if you are blindsided by it.
