Re: Just Got Fired Today!! Fuck
I'm 25 , in my 5th year of apprenticeship as a automotive technician

I work in a small shop that has 6 service bays and 3 other technicians.

Well i am the youngest guy there and the other guys have their licenses and there is barely enough work for them, yet alone me

So i end up doing all the crappy stuff that a 1st year or 2nd year apprentice does.. Like driving customers home, picking up parts, cleaning up the shop, painting walls, doing random shit etc.... I have a big toolbox that i spent a lot of money on , and i'm fucking painting walls...


Also, i am very reliable.. not once did a wheel fall off a car or did i leave oil out of a car. Never did i cost more than a few bucks of damage on a car... Never did i hit a car while moving a car. I've seen the other cars bump cars millions of times and cause far worse damage worth hundreds. I also fixed 3 cars that the licensed mechanics could not figure out ! Since it had to do with computers and electronics ( the other guys are older ) i was running circles around them in diagnostics !


Today the boss comes up to me and says.... well i hate to do this to you.. but... i'm lettin you go today...

me: whaat?
him: i was trying to light up a fire under your ass lately but i am not seeing it. You also don't like doing any other stuff than technician stuff and i'm trying to pick up the pace with you but i don't see anything happening..
me: what do you mean?
him: ( basically says the same shit in a different way )
me: ok bye


keep in mind, i never fucked up or caused any damage... and i did not REFUSE anything he said.. i did everything.. all the dirty work , the non mechanic work, i did.. without a question.... and i don't know what the fuck hes talking about timewise, because i did everything lately in the same timely fashion that i always did since i started here in february.


The real reason i got laid off is because it is slow.. and there is barely any work for the shop.. It sucks really because i'm probably the most reliable guy there and i don't even have a license yet.. That's why he had to get rid of ME because without a license you are nobody.

Anyway.. just had to rant... i was shocked.. i was never fired in my life.. plus i did not do anything bad since i started... i had 6 other mechanic jobs that i LEFT because the pay or the way shit worked.

Funny thing though i was thinking of leaving this place soon too because it was too slow and i was doing too much bullshit work... So maybe i'll go a step ahead now5a

Even if what he said was true, no warning? Just on the spot fired with no notice?

Get your LICENSE dumbass. If he had to fire someone don't you think that was the main reason why he let YOU go?

And you stated that you left 6 OTHER mechanic jobs. Why are you flitting around so much? Your expectations are wacked.

You need to understand the problem here is not the employers. It is you.

It's odd there were no written warnings.
Regardless, for him to tell you all that crap after the fact looks like he just had it out for you.
What was the point of telling you all this after the fact? if he had intended on keeping you, he'd have let you know what he expected of you.
Sounds to me like you got let go because you are slow. Some of that falls on him. It's his fault he isn't bringing in more customers.
Be glad you got out of there, because he obviously didn't appreciate you.
You are young and have tons of experience. Apply at the competitors. They will love it

you were fired because you are young, the other people are older, and it will be harder for them to get a job, it will be harder for them to retrain....

Try to get trained as a diesel tech, truck mechanic, there is always a demand there....

anyways it is worse for older people because no one will rehire them because they are too old, they self retire,

If I was you i would get more training.....or look where the demand in mechanics is so that you are not competing with everyone else....

just imagine if you were 50 years or older, you would be F$%Ked

Re: Just Got Fired Today!! Fuck
It's a common problem and will continue under our new overlord Obama. By the way did you vote for him? Obamacare is going to put a lot of people out of work due to onerous healthcare taxes. Businesses can't afford it. So if you did vote for Obama, your firing is likely a direct cause of that.

Having said that, being laid off is fairly common. You should try to take what your former boss said and see if there really was anything you could do to improve your performance. Maybe he was looking for someone less passive and more proactive, I don't know. It seems to me though with your skills you will find other work.

You don't make any sense. Why complain? If he didn't like doing the grunt work he was probably complaining about it to his fellow employees and most likely posting on twitter and FB about the crap he had to do. Do you have reading comprehension problems?

where you fifteen minutes early every day? And did you stay fifteen minutes later then you were paid?

If you came to work on time, you were late.

if you didnt stay to finish the job despite getting paid you were lazy.

If you need a job right away, go strip cars at a scrapyard. They always need guys.

No clients, cigarette in the mouth, more relaxed, and you will get to know cars by hearth.

Free gas, I've been putting gas in my cars from wrecked cars fresh off the platform for 3 years now. Free tires too (winter, summer). Plus all the shit left in cars. $$$$

Any mechanic's job is hard in Canada. Cold, salty, rusty, greasy, I mostly work on EU cars, the bolts don't just snap off like Asian garbage.

It hard physically because you will feel a week's work in one day. But good until you find something better.

But you're young..become a doctor instead, you can bury your mistakes. afro

I'm sorry OP, not that my apology helps. However maybe start your own business doing the same thing and charge less than your employer did. Put out flyers about your abilities and price, offer discounts for referrals. In the mean time keep throwing your resume out to other shops. My best wishes to you OP. I know something better will come for you. Much love.
