Got fired.
The company I worked for fired me about a week ago.

I travel as a part of my work.

I do not live where they fired me so I bought a car and drove to Missoula Mt.

I am starting over again at age 45.

2 promising job leads.

Inside a bit of fear of the unknown.

$7,000 in the bank so I will be OK there for a while anyway.

Share your starting over story.

I could really use some encouragement.

I was 4 1/2 years with the company.

They say every thing happens for a reason I believe that heart and soul.

I am just a little down looking for the bright side.

5 stars for encouragement, I'm not happy you got fired.

However, things do happened for a reason and the longer term hftakes a while to see.


Good luck, it is easy to say 'don't despair,' but hang in there...)))

Fired or laid off? Big difference when it comes (if needed) to unemployment.

You'll make it through. Just keep your focus and look for the best in the situation. I wish you the best of luck!

Re: Got fired.
what do you mean you didn't live where they fired you so you bought a car?

I would think you wouldn't want to buy a car after your income stream is cut off?

Anyway, in the end, there are always jobs out there for people willing/able to work.

My advice is for you to sell that new car and live your life as a free man until you get your spirit/health back. Then start looking again.

DUDE! You have a chance to start over! AND....you have 7 grand.

Get your butt online, research where the economy is still doing well, and GO THERE AT ONCE.

Some parts of the country are still booming. You must go over there!

Don't waste your second shot on Missoula Montana.

The adds that I have seen you need to be able to change the tires on the truck as well as change the oil.

Other adds want you to pay for the info on where to apply.

Its like a day late and a dollar short on the oil boom thing.

But if something comes up I will look into it.

One of the leads I do have is for local at $20.47/hr to start rotating shift(I am used to that).

Re: Got fired.
I had to have 2 spinal surgeries and was off work for about two yrs. My wife of 13 yrs left me six weeks after the spinal fusion surgery. I had to sell my house and a few weeks later my black lab started having seizures and they said she had to be put down.

I was able to get my job back but had to move away from all my friends and family.

Started a new job where I didn't know anyone in a town where I didn't know anyone. I hung in there and now have been able to move closer to my family and am making nearly twice what I was before the surgery. All that terrible shit made me stronger and I'm better off than before

LOL no those are scams I work at a disposal well and talk to truck drivers every day none of them do any of those things they got mechanics for that. Most of them work 12 to 14 hour shifts pretty easy work the only thing you have to do is get out hook up two hoses to load and unload and be able to read a strap tape so you can gauge the tanks pretty easy work plus you will get full benfits in 90 days. I know for a fact they are hiring here where I live I get offerd jobs every day.
