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

You'll be fine. The economy is bad. Get back on the horse and keep positive. Move on, you are way to smart.


Use the Obama innitiatives, link with another place, use the grant monies that are out there for new businesses.
Start your own business. Sleep/live in the garage. Save, money and undercut the prices of your competition.

Do it.

Sorry, OP you lost your job. You sound like a really good employee. You'll be able to get unemployment so be sure to file immediately.

I'll bet your boss wanted to keep you but the other guys have families and he felt worse for them.

Hope you didn't vote for Obama.

Your 25 years young and you should have been running circles around the older guys, your boss says you were slow and he was trying to get you going but yet you remained 1 speed, SLOW, maybe you did things right but if you move SLOW than you must GO...

Find a partner, raise the money, and start your own business. I know two guys here in town who worked at Goodyear and Firestone and they said fuck it and leased/bought an old Tuffy muffler place and I was one of their first customers. They were hanging the sign up out front when I first stopped by - literally. They did a great job on my car, and I have since gone back to them 2 other times with other work for them to do. They now have a great reputation on the internet and plenty of customers. I will give you their name and number if you want to talk with them, since it's the same kind of business.

I also have my own company, and will never, EVER, work for someone else again. Once you have any kind of success on your own, you will feel the same way. Good luck!

why complain? he was getting paid the same whether he was rebuilding a carburetor or cleaning the shitter . Its just a fucking job not his life
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27261702


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?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 15366249
No, you do.. "Why complain?" as in why should he complain?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27261702


OMG..are you fucking high? He clearly stated in his post that he didn't like doing the grunt work. So if he wanted to just focus on the technical stuff he thinks he is highly qualified to do (yet unlicensed) don't you think he would be complaining on some level? You are an idiot and probably work at a Taco Bell.

Re: Just Got Fired Today!! Fuck
to the cunts who say i'm stupid because i'm a 5th year apprentice and i'm stupid because i left 6 jobs... umm.. perhaps that should ring a bell??

maybe i left 6 fucking jobs, because everywhere i go, shit is falling apart.. the economy is fucked.. i'm on glp reading shit how shit happens to other people.. and i completely ferget that shit like this is happening to me..


i was at one place for 2 years... all they made me do is tires and oil changes and drive people around like a taxi. Meanwhile at home i can do headgaskets and shit on benzes and beemers.... I was loyal like fuckk, but guess what... after 2 years, they started sending me home early... then... they started cutting days... not to mention the days i DID work, i hardly got any real work mechanic experience.

so instead of staying at dead end job as a dead end apprentice, i had to take matters in my own hands and find places that actually will let me work on cars... so i went through like 3 different shops in 1 year before i found andy and i gained some knowledge in those shops and left them as soon as it started to crawl... so in february this year, when spring season was coming up, i found andy's shop and i had a talk with one mechanic who was outside and he said andy got rid of 2 guys in the last week and he needs someone... so i went into the shop and met andy and he told me " yeah we are CRAZY busy, you are goin to learn LOTS here we are always rocking! " so i quickly said yes... and bam he was right... within a week i got to do a headgasket job on a 2003 honda civic.... so i proved myself on quiet a few jobs early on.. and i loved it... everything was good.. andy was always smiling.. then in the last 2 months, i hear andy bitching how he might not make his bills this month for the business and might not even have enough for paycheks! I also fergot to mention that andy told me not to come in 2 times in 2 weeks because it would not be busy he said..... i guess that was my signal to leave... but i was never fired, and my superior work quality made me think i was not gonna get fired... or at least i would get a warning... but no... i worked today the whole day and at the end of the day, andy told me " i hate to do this to ya, but i'm going to have to let you go today "


so i'm goin to take this lesson and get my license soon... since andy did give me the opportunity to learn a lot in 9 months. Now i finally feel confident to get it.. but even then i know i'll be struggling as a lot of licensed techs are in toronto. I keep in touch with many techs from different places that i worked at and everywhere its dying.. i got 2000$ worth of debt in tools that im paying of to tool companies... and i am not even done buying tools..

Hang in there.

I have had many different jobs.

I do not feel like writing down all my experiences, but it sounds like what happened to you.

Assholes get promoted, while I worked my ass off, etc.

Ex gangbangers become cops, while I could not get hired as a "peace officer", etc...

I had numerous commendations on my grounds work, plus 7 months of experience. They give the job to a guy that had one month of experience and he crashed two company vehicles. I never crashed shit, never late, did the job of the leadman without leadman pay, the other guys fucked around while the leadman was on leave. I kept the grounds department going.

I will stop, but the list goes on.

What happened after the Boss' wife gave you the cards?
Did you say or do something to HER?

Because giving you those cards means that they were keeping you and thought enough of you to get the business cards.

Did something happen between draining the waste oil to the talk with the Boss?
