  • (HELP( Ca) Recently fired B4 probation completed

    I was employed with a private ambulance company that "separated" with me right before my probationary period was over. I wasn't the only one that the company "separated" with. This company treats their employees like numbers and in my opinion, it seems like they recycle employees by firing them before probation is over in order to NOT pay for any new employee benefits. They hire on a new batch of grunts to work all the "unwanted" hours 24 hour shifts/night shifts. The company finds the smallest, CORRECTABLE things to pin on you and make it seem like you did something so wrong you could never work there again. I believe I was FIRED/SEPARATED unfairly but I already signed all the separation papers and collected my final check. I had a union representative from NEMSAUSA.org present as well that didn't help one bit. IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN DO TO GET THIS OFF MY RECORD???

    Probably not. Based on what you have said the termination sounds legal. May I ask exactly what "record" you are talking about? Are you talking about something like a state liscensing board? Or just the record of some employer terminating you?

      With that being said, how should i go about future employment with other companies? No matter what i do, it's just going to look bad on my part.

        Many employees get terminated. One termination isn't likely to make a future employer not hire you.
        Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

          Does being fired while you are still on probation seem equally as bad as being fired as a regular full time employee?

            If you were terminated, you were still terminated no matter when. I don't think a future employer will give a lot more weight (if any) to either one.

              You just tell them that it wasn't a good match for you or them and that you agreed to separate. If they ask why, think up a good reason that would not be something you should be able to do for the job you're interviewing for, like working graveyard, dealing with health/trauma or whatever it was, etc. Turn it into a positive, "I'm looking for a job that provides xyz, (something provided by the company you're interviewing for).

                    Well, if they like to churn and burn people, it's probably well known in the field. If you say nothing bad about them in interviews, it will make you look good.

                      You certainly might want to give it a try.
