  • I've been laid off a few times, if that's what you mean. If you mean fired, I never have been, no. The reasons for the lay-offs both times were that I worked for a nationwide company (two different companies) and they were shutting down the branch I worked in.

  • I too have been laid off--a few times--never fired. Once when someone (I trained) who made LESS money that I did, and wasn't as qualified was kept and I was let go! Another was shortly after 9/11. The companies loss, not mine! :o)

  • I have never been fired. I never quit a job in less than 2 yrs. Usually that was for an opportunity to move up. Luckily nurses don't get laid off very often.

  • I was fired from one job. It was at a private school. I was hired in September because, and I quote, "We prayed about it, and you're the one sent to fill this vacancy." Then, by March, when I was fired it was, and again I quote, "Because God told me to." I can't put that on a job application for reason for leaving.

  • Pnukey, I understand how you feel. You don't put God in business. That was stupid of them.
