I worked for this division for a very long 4 months. I faced a hostile work environment and then retaliation when I attempted to go on short-term disability on the advice of the GE Health Nurse. Of course, they didn't want to pay me for 6 months and maintain my benefits, so they terminated me. I settled on that claim. And now, surprise, I can't even get an interview. Do they still black ball people in IT? And here's my favorite part: I will be terminal in less than a month. That means I might die in less than 6 months. Hmmmm ... anyone think I should still honor that Non-Disparagement Agreement I was forced to sign to get money to try to support myself?

You sound like a typical GE burnout. “I need 90 days of training to do a task!” Find something better to do with your life.
What's wrong? No snarky replies to that information. Here's some more. I was supposed to be in training for the first 60 to 90 days. Within less than a week, I was told to start doing my normal job without the necessary training on highly technical subject matters. I did as I was told. I would receive feedback. Do it again and again and again. Then, I was told to report to the Supervisors right-hand person. I received different direction. The Supervisor returned and then told me that direction was incorrect. While all that was happening, my laptop would crash on a consistent basis after spending hours doing something with a deadline. None of the systems were integrated so it would also lock up. I would still try to meet the deadline. Sometimes I was working 60 or more hours per week and on the weekend. Still not good enough. So there's the facts, folks. There's no clear direction. I did my best to work in extremely difficult circumstances. The morning the GE Health Nurse told me to go on short-term disability, I was up at 5 am. I started vomiting all over myself from the stress. I followed her advice. We all know what the result was, don't we. Why don't you try to comment on that now. Because I have all the emails where I was severely reprimanded for simply wanting to go to the doctor.
No, I never asked to come back. I was advised by the health nurse to go on short-term disability. I was fully transparent about the fact I was considered disabled to HR and my manager. I worked the essential job duties, over 40 hours a week, and didn't ask for PTO even when I had doctor's appointments or sick. All I asked was to work different hours on a flexible, remote work schedule to go to the doctor. You are all ignorant and mean. Today is my terminal date. That means less than 6 months to live unless I receive critical medical care. I could be dead in 6 months. You know what would have saved me: being allowing to see a doctor. I didn't ask for anything that other people weren't already getting. I requested a dictation app. No. I asked to start early or late and then leave early or late. No. I was told I couldn't even leave my home to travel to other places to see specialists. So don't judge things when you don't know the FACTS. The fact is I was discriminated against. The only reason I took the position was because it was remote with a flexible schedule and unlimited PTO which I pretty much didn't take. I took a total of 3 days during which I actually did work some. For the first 60 days, I worked from BED. So why don't all of you dwell in your ignorance while I try to recover from mold poisoning that was in the house I was ordered to stay in, why don't you?
Wow you only worked for 4 months and you wanted 6 months pay for doing nothing? What a low life he!! No would i hire you either!
Sounds like you are a total bum in the first place!!
So let me get this straight. You worked for GED for 4 months, went on disability, were terminated, then got a settlement, and now you want to come back and are mad they aren’t interested in you? You are either a troll or completely f---ing r----ded.
