I have worked at the same store for several years. I've gotten a good review every year, I've gotten merit raises, and my attendance is damn near perfect. When it came time to furlough people, I thought they'd drop the poorer performers first, or more recent hires. I felt completely stabbed in the back and betrayed when they furloughed me but kept poorer performers who made less per hour. Yes I'm going to get my job back they say... and I hope I will, but it really hurts a lot to be treated this way after all the service I've given them. I kept asking myself what I did wrong, why I wasn't good enough... what I could have done differently... but I know it's not me. They cut me over others because I make more per hour. It still hurts though. A lot. I earned those raises.
Usually I'd say it's a great place to work for with a good culture but right now I'm mostly just angry and hurt.
