I’ve been furloughed and the uncertainty is k–ling me whether they will call me again. What a terrible situation to be in. It seems to me that it would be mentally easier for me to bear being fired so that I know what to do next. I can’t relax at... — read more

Guess what is not legal? Orchestrating and posting positions/hiring for favored people who absolutely do not meet the five day unrestricted availability requirement for new trainers while so many are furloughed. Don't worry HR we all know who... — read more
