    Well you guys just made me feel awful petty getting mad at Firestone when other people are losing loved ones to cancer. I suppose I have it pretty good.

    Started seriously collecting Titan swap parts end of February.
    Ordered up coil overs for the front in March.

    It's freakin mid June and I'm still waiting.....................

    Everything else is here to do it.
    Getting seriously depressed about the whole thing.

    Current front coil overs shot so I can't even head out off road at all.

    Arrrrrrrrrgggggggghhhhhhhh !!!!

    PRG has some issues. When my AAL broke and I called him up and he said he would have it out to me by Friday. Well Friday comes package doesn't and couldn't get a hold him. Don't know where the package is. So I had to call around to make some else work. Nisstec and deaver made it all work out.
    Then FedEx is stupid and can't figure out if one number is wrong they can't deliver. The whole address was good but one number was off. So I had to pick it up from them. But then I finally had everything and PRG package comes in to. Greg can be an ass at times though. My wife got on the phone cause I don't well with my medical conditions with that stuff. And let's just that call didn't go well. Lol.
    I guess long story short and lesson learned. Don't use PRG use Nisstec and or Deaver and now I have a custom pack.

    What does one do if one finds themselves jobless all-of-a-sudden? Yep. I'm no longer employed as of 8am yesterday morning.

    I feel like I might have a wrongful termination case...or breach of contract issue. Has nothing to do with my gender or SO.

    Company might be in breach of contract with its customers, and I can prove it, but I don't know who I'd need to contact about it.

    step 1: swallow your pride, go to unemployment office and sign up immediately

    step 2: reach out to all of your possible contacts, see if anyone is hiring, see if anyone can point you in the direction of leads

    step 3: spam that resume out to as many places as possible, find yourself a new yob, don't sweat the small stuff...doesn't have to be anything glamorous initially, so long as it pays the bills...

    You should be able to file for unemployment on line. Sorry to hear about your job...

    Definitely file for unemployment. Then if you feel you have a case you might talk to a lawyer. I don't really know what it will accomplish though.

    oh? I take it you've tried? (I haven't had to go that route, just seen the outcome of two other people's wrongful term suits....)

    Yeah I did and GA is an "At Will" state, which I am pretty sure TN is as well. It fell flat in less than a week.

    Yeah it is.


    Even if I don't have a case for wrongful termination, I still know that they are in breach of contract with one of their BIGGEST customers, which also cost me my job. That's the hard part.


    I've already applied for unemployment. Waiting to hear back on that one. Also waiting to get my check in the mail from my 401k. I dread that tax penalty, though.

    Here is the problem with the breach of contract. When I left F&P, against my will, I was aware of the fact that they had "fudged" some test results and as such there were unsafe parts on the road. First problem is if you come forward after just being fired you look like a disgruntled former employee. If you wait and say something then you become as guilty as they are because you knew something and didn't do anything.

    As bad as it sucks and as much as you don't want to hear it, the best thing is to pull yourself up and go on. That is what makes this country great, that you have the option/ability to move forward from your problems. I think we all remember when I got fired and lost my wife's car, my X, and my house. now I have a better job, a new house, and a new car. It sucked and there are people out there that had it way worse than me, but you CAN move on.

    On a side note the company that you worked for is pretty big right? That means if you speak out against them you can rule out working in that field for the foreseeable future.

    I have no desire to ever step foot in an armored car again. Brinks is a great company, don't get me wrong, but I hated my job. I hated being out on a route and not knowing when I'd be home (traffic, wx delays, etc). I was in 2 accidents in a year, including one that slightly injured me that just happened to be my driver's negligence.

    I've applied for 2 jobs today, but I've been in the same "field" for the last 10 years. It's all I know, but it certainly doesn't pay the mortgage by itself. Most physical security jobs are $10/hr jobs, if you're lucky. I need 1.5x that just to pay the mortgage and my utilities. Fortunately, the X is paid off, but honestly I'd sell it and buy a $500 beater car and pay off my bike before I sold my Vulcan.


    I have a feeling there's nothing I can do about it, but it cost me my job and my livelihood. My pride is intact, but my wallet is not. That's the part that scares me the most.


    I haven't done it yet, but I'm going to apply at Yates this week. Yes, DRB, I know your experience with them, but I know plenty of others who have been hired by Nissan. It also helps when your dad is a Senior Manager, at least I hope it will.

    do you have proof? if so, call and talk to that client's compliance department head...

    but, like P2X said, if you do, guarantee you probably won't work in that field again...if that's a bridge you're ready to completely burn, go for it, if not....

    with all of the experience, why not see if your local PD is hiring?

    None of the local municipalities are hiring. I'm already on the testing list for a nearby County SO and I take the written test next Wednesday.

    I've looked into selling the house and relocating, but I don't have any money saved up to move.

    I dunno how DRB's experience with them was, but for the 3.5 years I was with Yates (before I transitioned to Nissan) they were a decent company to work for. Their starting pay is now $15.50/hr and the cap out is $18/hr if you're not hired on to Nissan by then. Talk to Malin_Rebate. As far as I know, he works night-shift on the Trim & Chassis plant. He'd be able to give you better insight into the way Yates is now.



    ERRR... DISREGARD. Evidently I don't know how to look a a post's date

    I guess I can update...

    I now work for a neighboring county sheriff's department. That's been a new thing. Sold the bike in March so I could pay the mortgage in April. Girlfriend got in a wreck May 7, totaled her car, and I came off the road (driving truck) to take care of her. Just happened to luck into the job at the SO.

    I had no big issue with Yates.. The pay wasn't very good 11.50 a hour.. And I was stuck in the SLC.. But then again I had zero exp in manufacturing so it was to be expected. At the time we were basically 10 hour days 6 days a week.. That will wear you down very quick.
    What's funny.. The week I decided to try and move up with Yates.. I had a phone call about surveying again.

    You should have mentioned you have power/air tool experience. The pay jumps quickly from there instead of going to the base-pay, "picker" job. There are 3-4 days of unpaid training and paperwork, but the pay jumps from $12.50/hr to $15.25 with the ability to advance.

    Yates is currently hiring anyone and everyone. Everyone from my group seems to have gone to either Body and Stamping or Paint (40/63).
