Yes, When I was a teen, I worked at a fast food joint... a co-worker wanted to swap shifts so he could go to a concert or something, well, I worked his shift, but he never showed for mine, and I got canned for it, even though we had manager approval...

What struck me as odd, was that the manager never called ME to come in when the guy was a no-show... they just fired me when I came in for my next shift... so I just went to the restaurant next door and hired on there...

No, but I have a really great work ethic. I had an issue with my current job w/being late on weekend mornings (which is then a 1 person department, 3 on weekdays). Finally when they started enforcing the attendance policy, I started being on time...every time. Amazing how that works. Now I work mornings M-F with an occasional weekend. I haven't been late since.

AND this is only my 2nd job...been working for 5 years.

But I haven't had a job.

No but I have been moved to a different department before.

No, but he sure helped me to quit this past Monday. I hope he doesn't mind supporting me now!

Nope. I've never been fired for any reason.

No, but one time, I was a trainer, and when my supervisors asked me how a new person performed, I was honest with them. Then, they held my words against him and eventually fired him. They were just too coward to do it themselves, so they relied upon my observations. I felt horrible since that wasn't my intention. Poor guy was better off not working where I work anyway...

Nope, but I am pretty sure that I have gotten a co-worker fired though.

No, but I have had a hand in getting someone fired. Every single coworker hated this persons guts and because I was the only one with enough influence with the owner it fell on me to suggest his termination of employment. I do not feel bad because this guy was a total jerk and it was a relief for everyone, including customers,when he was gone.

Never. I've never been fired before, but a crappy manager wanted to get rid of me once, just because he didn't like me for no reason.

They've tried, but it just backfired on them.
