Surprise! You're Fired!

No... not me... don't worry internet land, you're favorite corporate ranter has not been "let go".

A co-worker of mine in a different department sent an email out yesterday saying goodbye. We had no idea this person was leaving, so we investigated. Turns out they fired the guy with no notice. Just sat in closed door meetings all day and asked him in for the end of it. Said, "this isn't a good fit" and escorted him out.

Talk about a surprise!

Who does that?!? Just smacks somebody upside the head and says SEE YA!

Especially if you're someone like me, who lives paycheck to paycheck and they offered you only 2 weeks pay (I don't really know how much he got)that would be awesomely devastating.

So, even though I didn't like the guy much, and I did think he was a bit inept at his job... I still feel pretty bad about it.

I hope this isn't a good indication of how this company deals with letting people go. If it is... I hope he got a few months severence.

I hate that, how in the States they can just turf you out and leave people no options. I still live in fear of being fired, and when otehrs are let go? Oh yeah. The guilt is high.
