That’s so unprofessional for them to fire you through other co-workers.  Can they even do that?  Hang in there, girl!

So you both got fired from the restaurant job? What are the rules in PA about having to give reason for firing someone? I know here in Cali it’s at will so they can lay you off with out telling you, not positive about it but I think they have to tell you if they’re going to fire you why they’re firing you (don’t you have to tell unemployment why?). Either way maybe I watch WAY to many 48 hour mystery type shows but it seems VERY fishy that both of you got fired. Did anyone else get fired? Something doesn’t seem right. Is it a chain restaurant? Usually there’s a coporate HR rep maybe you could talk to them?

I don’t know about where you live, but where I live restaurant jobs are fairly easy to find once you have some experience working in one. Maybe you can try to find a job at a different restaurant fairly quickly.

That really is unprofessional.  Yikes.  I’d need to know what the reason is for this treatment.  I’d also begin looking for other positions.  Restaurants are the best place to get a part-time job if you have experience because the turn over rate is so high.

PA is an at-will state, so they aren’t required to show cause for termination – but that’s about as unprofessional as you can get!  If it’s important you, I’d say you ought to stop by when you know the Groomsmen will be around and inquire in person, but otherwise just write these guys off.

As for $$ – are there other restaurants where one or both of you can apply until tings pick up?  Does your Fiance have other options for a non-commission based job?

What sort of debt are you in?  Student loans, credit card, mortgage?
