"How did she meet the requirements to get the job and then not meet them after she was hired?"

This just in: Sometimes people lie about their job requirements or just turn out to be assholes when they start working.

balki1867: This is still in the news?  Isn't there a missing white kid somewhere?


I think I saw that movie

Johnson is angry that Kimmel didn't offer payment for the appearance

Then why'd you go on? Dufus. You knew that going in.

Steak_Cake_Sause: my porn collection is stolen too.


LOL, I suspect that's true of most people.

I must say, the helpful slideshow at the bottom of the article with pictures of what a porn star may look like was certainly helpful.

Mikey1969: We kind of thought the same thing... Everybody at the old job got the impression that my replacement knew the boss.


Sounds about right.  Do you think you were doing well before they let you go?  I'm pretty sure you got boned, but was there anything you were or weren't doing to provide the excuse?

I'm only asking because every time I've seen it happen they have the ex-employee dead to rights on something, whether the new requirement or past performance.  No one makes the move on a whim.

Nothing concrete... It was an IT position, I was sole support here in SLC for about 85-100 people, as well as remote support for all of our other sites. There were 3 of us, including my boss... We had a 3-writeup policy, but had 3 different categories they could fall into. I had had one in 2 of the categories, but I think the last one was about a year before I got "let go".

No complaints about me, and I got most of my projects finished. Never got a writeup or verbal warning on that, either. I had a feeling something was coming down the pipe, nothing definite, I just get weird feelings about stuff. This one I'd had all summer, and over the course of the summer and into the fall, I had cleaned out our server room, threw away garbage, recycled other garbage, inventoried stuff for sale to employees, threw out about 300 lbs. of old software alone. I then reorganized the server racks to make them more functional, doing everything I could do while they were hot, then coming in on the weekends to take down wat I needed to. I also installed a huge UPS unit in there, weighing about 300 lbs, completely alone, and once again with live servers until the final cutover(On the weekend, of course). Finally, I cleaned up all of the wiring, since server rooms quickly turn into rat's nests. I can guarantee you that I did THAT part after he'd made his decision.

So to make a long story longer, I know of no obvious issues. My boss told the HR lady first that I wasn't knowledgable enough, when she asked why they didn't send me for training, he started to talk about uncompleted projects, but couldn't actually name any for her. He used the shiat out of me to clean, reorganize and re-layout that server room. Everyone here in SLC liked me, my boss basically snuck in from out of town one afternoon, waited until everybody was at lunch, and had the HR lady come get me. He knew, she knew, the head of HR knew, and the head of the dept that oversaw IT knew, that was it. The local facilities manager was livid.

I even told people this in my interviews when I was applying for work, I got the job I have now, made it to the final interview on another, and got hired by another, but they never got back to me on the background check until it was too late. None of these people had a problem with my explanation. I think the guy just wanted to fast track a rise in the capabilities of the SLC office, and was too much of a dick to consider giving me the chance to go back for the training I'd requested.

LordOfThePings: jtown: There's a porn star gallery at the bottom of the story.  Just sayin'...

"Asa Akira has won many awards for her anal sex scenes and puts them on display on a shelf in her house."

How does she ... ?

Oh! The awards!


Actually, digital photo frames that can play video files aren't that expensive, so there could be one of those with all the scenes in question in a playlist (or one frame for each scene, I suppose)

Mikey1969:
Happened to me last October. I'd been with the company 5 1/2 years(Would have been 6 at the end of January), and in my current position for about 4 of those years. Suddenly, my boss comes into town and tells me that I no longer meet the requirements for the position. No option to train up, and I had been denied tuition reimbursement about 2 years before. It happens. In my position, I think they were going for more of a network admin at my local office.

Aaaaaaand this is why unions are not "outdated", people.  If I suddenly "don't meet the requirements for the job", it's not because someone decided they want to fark me over (or even "politely fire" me).  It's because my job fact sheet was changed to include skills and responsibilities I don't have, I signed off on it, and then I failed to acquire those skills and look after those responsibilities.  If those changes were too much for me to catch up with, they have to find me another job in the organization that does match my skills.  There's no way to write someone's employment out of existence because you don't like their tie/face/religion/etc.

The same of course is true for this story.  If someone at my work was fired or disciplined for something non-criminal in their private life, all hell would beak loose

J.L and S.G. created the middle class in this country - Gov't wouldn't have done it, business wouldn't have done it.  Unions  made the country what it is.  Now gov't and business are destroying it.

/NEVER a union member, fiscal conservative, social liberal, gov't hater.

Earlie Johnson had his $7,500 porn collection ...

Must have been the leather bound edition.

Last week, welder Earlie Johnson had his $7,500 porn collection taken from his home in Muskegon, Mich., after burglars broke in through the backdoor.

I pretty much stopped reading right there since I knew exactly what was in his collection.

Good point. Sort of a curio-fellatio cabinet.

==============================================

$7500 on porn?! I guess we know who's keeping them all in business.

/Who pays for porn? Honestly!

Mikey1969: "I was let go before I went on the show because they said I didn't meet the job requirements."

That's an excuse that Johnson isn't buying.

"How did she meet the requirements to get the job and then not meet them after she was hired?" he asked.

 Happened to me last October. I'd been with the company 5 1/2  years(Would have been 6 at the end of January), and in my current position for about 4 of those years. Suddenly, my boss comes into town and tells me that I no longer meet the requirements for the position. No option to train up, and I had been denied tuition reimbursement about 2 years before. It happens. In my position, I think they were going for more of a network admin at my local office.


Wow, fark your company.  When something similar happened to me, my boss came and told me that despite not meeting the "reqs" I was the only person that could do the job, so here is a raise and would you be so kind as to go get yourself these certs?

But that's why I don't work in "it" anymore.  Too structured, and too stupid, and too many ITT tech graduates.  Asshats wouldn't know an IP table from a rainbow table.

Yeah, the local people were pissed, there was no problem with me getting stuff done locally, and the facility manager was NOT happy about having to build a relationship with someone new, he knew that I would do everything to resolve an issue as soon as possible, and if I couldn't fix it right then, I would have a fix by the next time it popped up. It really DOES make me mad that I had asked for the training and been denied. I had already held off for awhile, due to the recession. Part of the deal when I took the position is that I would get some kind of new training each year.

But that's why I don't work in "it" anymore.  Too structured, and too stupid, and too many ITT tech graduates.  Asshats wouldn't know an IP table from a rainbow table.

It's also starting to get a little stale. Sitting around waiting for something to break isn't really challenging me anymore. I learned programming in High School and really liked it, I'm seriously considering going back to school, U of U has a pretty well-regarded video game production degree, I could learn programming again, AND use some of my graphic design skills. At least I would be getting challenged. Also, by working there, I get half-price tuition, which is pretty sweet....

5 1/2 years wasted, though...
