in advanced I dont want nothing negative Ive got enough negativity in my life right now I dont want to hear oh this has nothing to do with nursing because you aint an aide no more... no it has everyhing to do with that because I dont want a bad reference that is going to hinder me the rest of my life.
So I have posted about how I got fired from my first CNA job about a month ago for allegations of border line verbal abuse and breaking infection control. The first thing I know I didnt do and I will fight until Im blue in the face! I did my job I did my best with what I had if I was ever late I called to let them know I was on my way, if I was sick or couldnt come to work because of a family emergency I tried to find my own coverage Or I called in to let them know, and those things were far and few between. I NEVER EVER just decided to be a no call no show. I was told by a couple of nurses and aides that I did my job well they never had a problem and they liked working with me because stuff got done.
On the other hand there were aides that always were late never called or they were always no call no show they didnt do there job and I hated coming in after them. yet they never got in trouble and I dont get talked to or wrote up I just get fired. I didnt even get told that Im being on suspension for three days and then three hours later I got my termination call.
I was working every weekend also I had asked and pretty much got down on my knees to get off of every weekend and to get hours through the week nothing from the nursing home. any way I got a job as a cashier just to take a little bit of a break from being an aide then I relised I missed being and aide so I told them that I was looking for a second job because I wanted to go to school and I didnt feel that 7.25 an hour alone would provide that. so it was what ever they understood they said they were willing to work around my schedual. then they decided three weeks in to train me for the service desk I thought ok well more hours maybe I wont need a second job.
I Talked to some of the other cashiers about my fears and they all understood most of us got along. any way, so today its the end of my shift and I take my drawer back with the assistant manager and the manager is sitting there and he just takes the drawer out of my hands and says " I have gotten alot of complaints about you and one from a customer that you have and attitude and that you are a negative force." " who me? I dont know what you are talking about I do my job the way it should be done" " well Im going to have to let you go"
I have never been rude to a customer I was very inclined to learn fast and get started working. I did every thing they told me to I stocked shelfs I cleaned I helped the customers to the best of my abilities and I always said things like hi and have a nice day.
however there was one day I was a little frustrated and I posted on facebook that I was a little irritated from my shft but it was what ever and I guess it got back to them some how, at least thats what one of my friends thinks and Im thinking ok im off the clock if I want to vent a little I think Im entitled to it I think Im entitle to get irritated at customers that are rude no matter how nice you are to them.
I was told by a trusted friend that he went in to the store to see when he had to work again and he said it was like a funeral in there no one wanted to talk to each other after I got fired that they were all kind of mad about it too. I was also told by another friend that because of indiana being a right to work state they can fire you no matter what even if they dont personally like you or if they hear false rumors about you. now is that true?
now I honestly feel that Im never going to get a job as an aide or even potentially a nurse after Im done with my education I dont know what to do or where to turn and I need some advice and this is the only place I could think of. Right now I dont really want to deal with people Im angry and a little depressed. I am thinking about going to see someone like a therapist or somthing to see if there is somthing I need to change. because I also think that I come on to strong sometimes and if I dont then Im just to shy and quiet its almost rude and insulting to people. plus I need to deal with my stress a little better. I was also thinking about tommarow calling up some of the hireing nurses/DONs to some of the places I applied to and see if I can sett up an appointment to explain my situation and to see if I can get an interview, Does that sound professional to show hey I screwed up but I need a job to show I can do better and right my wrongs?
I hadnt even had this cashier job for a month yet. I had my aide job for 8months.
