When Work Ethic Isn't Good Enough: I was just terminated earlier tonight, I had been working stocking the frozen food section in a super-store for 3 months - apparantly at the end of my "probation" period I wasn't pushing out enough pallets per night, but I never missed a day, clocked in on time, did not talk constantly, and worked diligently. I would just like to say that I think it's pathetic when diligent work is not good enough - the problem was, they used to have 3 people working that section at night, then this one really speedy dude got the work done himself, so the "brilliant" management team thought "hey - we can make anybody do the work of 3 people for the pay of one" they consistantly pull the shrinking night shift workforce into other departments because they are too cheap too hire enough people to do the job. I never had any love for the corporation before, and having worked inside it for 3 months, I can definitly say their business practices are unethical, and they relish reeling people in with propaganda before trapping them and hitting them with the reality of working several departments for just slightly more than min wage.
