When you go online and you see your job posted on the job bank

Ya that's right! I just found an ad posted two weeks ago from the company I work for advertising my job. But not only my job but everybody's job where I work. We have no idea what is going on but we are all just waiting for the day to come when they tell us we are done!! I only found out about it because a friends contacted me on FB and asked if the jobs at the company where I work were still available. Before that I didn't even know they were hiring. Sure enough there was my job. I guess that is what I get after 31 years of service..so by the looks of it I will be unemployed soon. I am beyond devastated since they are doing it all behind our backs. I guess I will just wait and see how long it is before we are gone and our replacements come in.

When I taught, teachers who had tenure and were making too much money due to teaching for many years had their lives made miserable by the administration so that they would quit. They could hire 3 just-out-of-college teachers for the amount of money a long-time teacher made. So unfair to loyal workers.

Argh! A similar thing happened to Hubby at the beginning of the year. An employee from the other company location found an auction announcement online for the company's equipment. Auction? Omg . . . the news spread and everyone was waiting for the ax. Sure enough in January, the company fizzled . . . but how sick that they all knew from before only because that employee found something online. But luckily for Hubby and a few others, a side gig came in the works thanks to a key person . . . but everyone else had to move on. I am sorry you are having to go through this . . . I hope they at least have the decency to tell guys what's going on and soon - it's not cool to do these things behind your backs - especially after so many years of working there!!

Oh, wow! I'm really hoping someone made a mistake and posted the jobs at your company by mistake, Laurel! Rather than wait and worry, you should approach your manager and ask what is going on. At least then, you'd know and wouldn't have the worry hanging over your head. Good luck!
