Spiff up your resume and start lookin’ elsewhere. And become familiar with your local unemployment office if necessary. Sorry if that’s harsh, but that’s what I’d do. Good luck either way! Hope stuff works out for ya!

@Wonderwoman217: <– I agree with what she said.

It sounds like your employer is in trouble and I think it would be better to try and get out before it gets much worse. I always say have a job lined up when/if you quit yours, so if I were you, that’s what I would be looking in to. For a company to be stooping to such unprofessionalism, they’ve got to be going under..

Also, FI’s car might have to wait if you lose your income. He’s a big boy; he can wait a few months.

You mean move closer to where he works? If it’s a bigger city it might have more job opportunities. Could you go into work with him one day and venture around looking for jobs there for the day? If you get a job there too, it makes a lot of sense to live there. I’ve got to admit, I hated commuting. So I’m all for living within 10 minutes of work. haha

Im pretty sure they can get in trouble if they tell you that. You might want to look into that..a couple of weeks ago i had the same problem, but my check bounced from them! It was a big problem and i didnt get my money for for a month..kinda scary. Oh and also the lights got turned off at work too bc they said they “forgot to pay the bill”, but i highly doubt that!…where do you work at?? Is it a big company??

@xshellx2003: Look into temp agencies in your area – I’ve had trouble finding a job too, so I signed up with a temp agency and it’s been working out great for me so far!

I did temp for 8 months and loooovvvvveeeeddddd it. I didn’t get treated like crap, because I could leave any time. They knew this. Companies look for temps because they need help, not usually to have “second-rate” workers. There was a somewhat high turnover rate with temps, but I stayed in the same job for the 8 months. They even wanted to hire me full-time.

Can your Fiance hold off on getting the new car?  It really doesn’t sound like you are in a financial position to take on a new loan.  I would also start looking at how to cut back on some wedding expenses and sending out your resume everywhere.

Sounds like no matter what you only got a short amount of time left at the company.  Start looking for a new job now rather than wait for the day you won’t have a pay check.  If you get let go, you can always get on unemployment to help make ends meet, so it’s not all doom and gloom if you know your options..

@AmeliaBedelia: That’s been my experience too.

I’ve enjoyed temping; for one thing, it’s always something new, for another, if I don’t like a job, I don’t have to stay.

When I started, it was a day here, a day there, just one day at a time, but I still have 3-4 days of work a week. After a few weeks they started giving me longer term stuff. The position I’m working in now I’ve been doing for four months!

And yes, after a job ends, the temp agency finds you something else. They basically do all the work. My temp agency has me in temp positions, but they’re also looking for a permanent position for me, since they know what I want in a job, and what I’m good at.
