I finished training and kept getting told it is slow so they sent me out on training and other odd jobs. I didn't get the training and experience before I was laid off in December of 2008. I am sorry to hear of layoffs as it was a painful time in my life at Cerner. I left a job of 19 years for them and they then laid me off as well as over 200 that year. Some of my training group stayed because of their jobs or degrees. The last several years after have been hell. I recently ran into a Current Cerner employee from my group still working at Cerner. I have never met such meanness and cruelty on the job as when I run into current employees. I'd never wish a layoff on my worst enemy as it is not their fault and you not only lose a job, but so much more and at times it is traumatizing. Cerner remember that when you run into past employees you have laid off.
Sorry to hear this, good luck man
