Eligible for rehire?

  1. Hello,

    I recently interviewed at a UHS facility and was offered the job on the spot. They're running background checks and I'm set to take a drug test soon. I was given a conditional job offer. The problem is, I previously worked at a different UHS facility where I broke a 2 year sign on contract. I've called HR to ask them if this would render me ineligible for rehire... She basically gave me the runaround and said that she couldn't give me that information. I asked if i could repay what I owed but I was given the runaround for that too... I need advice. I really want this new position, and I'm so scared that they'll rescind the offer they made me. I'm particularly afraid because I just put in my two weeks notice at my current job and i've already placed a deposit for a new apartment (did i mention im having to relocate for this position). What can I do?

    What can you do? Wait. You cannot change whatever decision they make. But, in the future if you receive a conditional sign on bonus, honor that time period so that you are not caught in this situation. I wish you the best.

    You have made several mistakes here.

    Renigging on your sign-on contract, quitting a job based on the conditional offer of a new one, placing a non-refundable deposit on an apartment you may not use and asking All Nurses for advice.

    Prepare for a bit of tough love, "your actions have consequences" posts.

    Wait it out and maybe look for lucky pennies on the ground? I wouldn't have even called HR. If you were off the radar, you're back on it now. Is the amount you would have had to pay back greater or less than the deposit you put down on that apartment? You might still be coming out ahead, even of you lose the deposit.

    The deposit wasnt that much. So not a huge loss there. And I don't owe UHS that much either. That's why I was looking to repay them, but they said I had to call payroll, who then told me to go to HR. And you're right, i should've stayed on the down low. But oh well, lesson learned.

    I wasnt expecting to work for this company again. And I don't really see how I burned them twice. I put in the two weeks notice, left on good terms with my supervisor, and mostly paid off my balance. I left for medical reasons, not that I should have to clarify. Unfortunately, no one ever contacted me to pay off my dues because they outsourced payroll systems right after I left. My paper work was lost. When I left, I knew what I was doing. I wasnt in the right place for nursing. I didnt expect to go back to nursing. I was blessed to find a position like the one offered. So I took a chance. Granted, I should've waited to resign my current job. But as far as I'm concerned, that's the ONLY thing I regret. I'm happy that I left UHS when I did, and if i can go back in time, you bet your ass i would do it again. My health comes first.

    This just kind of goes back to never burning a bridge, even if you can't see where it will ever matter. Water under it now - what is done, is done. If you never heard from them they likely wrote it off. It has been a few days since you posted. Did you get the job?

    I understand. I won't do it again. And everything looks to be on the green. I'm already signing all the new hire paperwork. They've already done the background check and drug test. Looks like I'm almost in the clear. But I'll still be wary and I'll update as soon as I officially start on my first day.

    You burned them twice because not only did you quit in the middle of a contract you committed to, but then you didn't even pay back the amount you owed remaining on the contract.

    I think I've already made it clear that I've tried to pay them back. But no worries. Got the job with no problem. Thanks for the clarification.
