SO there'll be one less mouth to feed around here.


About 2 hours ago, Jerm received a phone call from Eastman stating that because of the incident at A&L, they were letting him go. So, what the heck are we supposed to do now?

I'm sorry hon. I don't understand why they would use that to fire him when they just hired him.

I think Eastman is pretty particular about who they hire...when he went through the interview process with them last year, this hadn't happened yet. They guy he talked to tonight said if they'd known about it sooner they prolly wouldn't have hired him. They do background checks on everyone they interview, so this hadn't shown up or even happened yet of course.

I guess I do understand. We have USIS and another government facility here and each of them take about 8 weeks to hire you. But they do the background check and several interviews during that time and you KNOW you still may not get hired but they don't hire you before they do that which is where I think these people are DEFINATLY in the wrong.

I'm so sorry, Becca.

I can't believe that they won't give him a chance to prove himself.

it seems like he wasnt' even given a chance. Eastman hired him, they should have used him if they didn't cover their bases good enough it is their fault!

I am so sorry to hear that! I feel for you Becca. It is no fun to have a spouse tell you they have been let go or laid off....especially when the hiring season is slow everywhere.
