@sal5011:  Yep. I have a very light workload and actually today is the day where bosses will be reviewing whether or not my job will be cut, so I’ve been a ball of anxiety today. Hang in there though. I’m sure you’ll be fine. 🙂

@sal5011:  Dude, mine is the same way!  I have to bill out my hours and I definitely just have to pad everything cause I just dont have that much to do…  But all my coworkers assure me that the company is making plenty of money and that our bosses would never let go permanent employees.  (We also hire 3-8 temporary seasonal workers every year.)  I’ve been here a year and they like me and my work, so…. yeah, let’s hope!  

@miss.wiggums:  Good luck!  I hope they don’t cut your job!!!!!!

@sal5011:  I lost mine in December due to closure. I honestly didn’t realise I had it so good till it was gone.

It was a 5 min car journey from my house,I got a really decent hourly rate,the hours suited me around my son, I didn’t need childcare out with the school holidays and I could take my annual leave to suit myself.

I just started a new job last week,its at least a 20 minute drive away,minimum wage (doing the same job – argh!),more hours that require me having to rely on others to look after my son some days and they tell you when to take leave and are totally inflexible.

You honestly never know the day,I had worked in my previous job for 5 years and the owner out of the blue decided to retire after originally saying she was going to sell up with a clause to retain existing staff for X amount of time. I’m still on the lookout for something comparable to my old job but don’t think I will be that lucky twice and there appear to be very few jobs in my field available so I can’t be choosey.

At least you appreciate what you have and long may it continue 🙂

Thanks Ladies! Just got out of the meeting and it went pretty well, everything is on pause mode for now and we will reevaluate in a few months.

We’re currently downsizing our company. I’ve been told I’m safe, but we’re closing 4 more offices, and laying off 30 in the next few months. It’s terrifying 🙁 Especially since I have downtime as well

I’m nervous because of the budget uncertainty this year.

I have a fairly stable job, but being let go with no notice from the last three places I worked at and being unemployed for 10 months before finding this job; I’m always worried I’ll be let go/fired.
