Default Out of Work....Again!

I was within 2 days of completing my probation period at the Mental Health Counseling agency I had started working for when I was called into the office this past Thursday. I was told they were exercising their "employment at-will" rights and I had a choice of either resigning or being terminated.

They had never lived up to their promises of making the money they enticed me with, and many of their employees pad the hours they work which is reimbursed through Medicaid. It is not a very honest place to work, which unfortunately I found out after I started there.

Several friends have told me that "the place has a very bad reputation for how they treat their employees, but had hoped it would turn out better for me". While working there I discovered they do not reimburse for mileage, or meals for your clients.

The clients are all teens, poor, with varying degrees of mental/behavior/court problems. I had 3 cases and they all loved me. The parents and guardians all said that I had accomplished more in getting the kids turned around than had ever been done before. They all all up in arms over my being terminated.

The bottom line is, if you know of any potential employers near Roanoke, VA who could use a good employee with over 25 years as a Social Worker/Counselor who has skills in interviewing, case management, community resource procurement, assessment, and counseling skills please let me know.

Considering the economy I have a feeling that I will be having a long dry spell. I don't have a whole lot of money put away, but I think I can afford to hold onto my guns for a little while at least.

I would appreciate your thoughts and prayers. God bless you guys.

Steve

Steve, I'm really sorry to hear this. It sounds to me like you were too honest and hardworking, and the employer saw you as a threat. You will be in my prayers.

Hang in there Steve. Sounds like you were too good for them. My Father-in-law worked for a company that made lamp shades. These guys would hire workers for a three month trial. They would fire or layoff the employee after two and a half months. This way they wouldn't have to pay them full benefits or worry about having them join the union. Practices like that should be stopped. In this case the company closed because they couldn't compete with imports.

Good luck with your search Steve. Thoughts and prayers sent your way. Something will come up soon, as high quality people are always in demand somewhere. Just need to find the right outfit.

Lightbulb LOAA Roanoke, VA

Steve,
Here is the LOAA website LOCAL OFFICE ON AGING for Roanoke and the surrounding areas. Maybe they will know of some openings. Or since it sounds as though you may have some free time, volunteer with them. You never know, it may produce a lead or two. Best of luck to you.

Hi Barb. I worked for the local Area Agency on Aging about 21 years ago, and was the Director of Volunteer Services for 5 years for them. They don't currently have any job openings, and have really cut back due to the economy. I appreciate the lead.

Sorry to hear.

Many of those type of agencies are funded by federal, city, and state government as well as private business. Some of them don't care how they spend the money.

Maybe it's time for a surprise inspection by one of those agencies or L&I?

I am sorry to read that your employment hasn't turned out well for you. I worked in the same field for about a decade before I retired due to health issues. I worked for a city CSB as a clinician. There was some protection for employees because it was a city agency. There were the usual poltics and favoritism/patronage that one finds in any such organization. I tended to focus on delivering services to my clients and was constantly frustrated that there seemed to be more value placed on neat and timely paperwork than on clinical outcomes. I had worked for a private agency that made their income mainly from Medicare funded clients and there was a good amount of unethical practices to outright fraud going on with some cases. I left after filing a complaint with Medicare.

Unfortunately, with the bad economic conditions and budget cuts being made by most state and local governments, human service agencies are prime targets for cuts. I know a few senior people in the public sector that have been laid off or had to take early retirement. This is a tough field to find employment in with a bad economy. I am glad to be out of that profession because of that. Perhaps you might consider a return to school and getting into another profession?...I wish you good luck.

Default Many thanks!

Thanks to all. Frizz, I am looking for just about anything that will help pay the bills. The problem with going back to school is that I'm 55 years old, and can't really justify it unless it is paid schooling, like on the job. Yep, this company gets it's money through soaking Medicaid. The Director has been there a whopping 4 years! My immediate supervisor had been there 2 years! They go through employees like **** through a goose. I am putting out applications and resumes everywhere. I too have lots of medical problems, but my doctor won't support me filing for disability. I'm very fortunate in that a local church has a support group for unemployed folks that meets every week to discuss job possibilities, resume writing, networking, etc. I have a little money put away, and of course have my guns which I can liquidate if need be. At least for the time being I can get caught up on some household chores!
Thanks to all for your thoughts and prayers!
Steve

Check the time of the previous post. I've been up since about 3:30 a.m. sending out resumes. I'm off to the Employment Commission in a couple of hours.

I understand your situation regarding going back to school. We are the same age. Finding any funding for people our age is pretty difficult. Counseling is a stressful business in the best of circumstances. Having to deal with a predatory work environment makes it much worse.

The biggest sector of that field seems to be in the area of developmental disabilities since funding for treatment for such folks tends to be the last to go. Youth group homes also seem to continue to hire but that is a really stressful area of work. I tried that once and I was mighty glad to get another job...I became a police officer. I would also look at the Dept. of Corrections and US Bureau of Prisons. They seem to be on the lookout for counselors most of the time but its another tough environment to work in...If you qualify for disability and can't get medical assitance I believe you may need to consult a lawyer who deals with disability...Good Luck, Frizz

Tonight I'm off to a support group at a local church for those of us who are unemployed. This group has been in operation for many years, and has a lot of good folks who volunteer to lend their experience, advice, and contacts. My son, who just got out of college for the summer, is going with me. He too is looking for a job for this summer. While in school he drives a bus for the kids on campus (like a city bus) to take them to town or around the campus. He will probably have a better chance at getting a job than I will!!! Keep the good karma flowing this way. I've been firing off resumes to everything I find posted that looks halfway appropriate.
Thanks for the thoughts and prayers.
Steve

Went to the meeting last night and got some good leads. Today I got my unemployment insurance info in the mail. If I'm approved I will get about $403/week which will help keep the bills paid. It can last up to 26 weeks.
I been mailing/emailing resumes like mad. Just hope they don't get used as TP or worse........

Hang tough, Steve; things can and will improve.

I'll just say on the guns: if it ever gets to the point when you think you have to sell them, don't just rush off to the nearest auction house or gun store to see what you can get for them. I imagine several forum members would be willing to buy a gun from you with an attached recognition of your right to repurchase at the same price when circumstances permit.

Now I have a Mersa infection in my nose and upper mouth soft tissues!! My mouth looks like an algae eater and I can barely talk. If someone calls me to set up an interview it will surely be interesting!

I would think the racist remarks would hurt you more than the infection.

MRSA (methicillin resitant Staphylococcus aereus) is not good stuff and often made worse by stress. I feel for you. Did you get someone to write you a prescription for some Bactrim, it's the only thing that will kill it off. Occassionally we get some samples at work but never Bactrim, or else I would hook you up. It should be available as a generic for $4 at Wally World if you can get your doctor to write the script.

Good luck with the job hunt, maybe the FBI will reimburse you for information regarding Medicaid fraud at your former employment. They're nailing those types of places all over the country these days. I would at least send in an anonymous tip or you can tell me the name of the company and I'll do it.

Take care of yourself.

Maybe there is more to your "out of work again" than you are letting on. The cleaned up racist remark might be a good step,I don't know.I've just dealt with people that always thought it was other people bringing them misery,but it wasn't.And you working in the public should take better care of that kind of talk,this isn't eyes only top secret stuff.

Dacoontz-I think I'll just let it ride.As Lee J. said in the thread he closed this a S&W forum- and I wish all the politics,race, religion etc.would go somewhere else.Our common bond should be the joy of owning,shooting, fixing, reloading for,showing off firearms-S&W and all others.I hope slowburninsteve has good luck finding a job,I've walked a mile in his shoes and hope to hear any and all positive news from him.To all it may concern-please talk guns here.

Default Response

Setxn,

I have waited several days to cool off before responding to your insinuations related to my personality, beliefs, and actions. Perhaps you would be better served to know something about someone before writing the things you did. I take them as a personal affront which I'm sure would not have occurred should you have been standing face to face with me. Enough about this, just to let you know most of the clients I have worked with over the years are African-America. Some of them have become life long friends, almost adopting me into their families. I have been there when their children were born, died, and struggled with life's challenges in-between. I believe that people are people and the color of their skin does not dictate the amount of good or evil they are capable of.

As far as the quality of my work, I retired after 20 years from the one previous to the last. If I was such a terrible person I'm sure that I would not have been there that long.

When you posted a complaint about who my swollen lips looked like (which happened to be a predominate black female involved in politics by name who does have very large lips) I immediate revised my post as to not ruffle any feathers. This obviously did not satisfy you, as you then took it upon yourself to post other times about either reporting my post to the owner, alleging that I am racist, and the type of work character I have.
Sir, I have been a member for of this forum for many years and have developed many good friends while here. I can appreciate your feeling offended when someone you are a fan of was poked fun at, but I think you go beyond that. You obviously have an axe to grind, and unfortunately that is something not tolerated on the forum, which we all are only guests of the owner.
I only ask that next time you think twice before posting insinuations about members, and appreciate that all of us are human on here, with varying degrees of ways of expressing humour. In turn, if you were offended by my original post, I apologize, but let this end NOW! We are here for information, advice, and in some cases, support with problems we are going through. I appreciate the support from my buddies here during this trying time in my life, and would appreciate the end of the insinuations, threats, and disparaging remarks.

Steve

slowburninsteve-poor performance by both of us. As you can see in post #26 I was trying to put an end to this before it got ugly.My read of the situation was wrong,the racist remark was wrong,me thinking you were playing the blame game was wrong.Hopefully my last negative comment about anything on this forum.Smiles and guns!!My apologies in return and good luck on your job search .Setxn

Default MRSA

Dac, you are right, this is nasty stuff!!!! It stinks, ruptures, itches, and stinks some more. The Dr. did put me on Bactrim which was doing a very slow job of clearing it up, and added another antibiotic to attack it from another angle. I'm a lot better than I was, but still not up to appearing in public for important stuff (I'm kind of glad I haven't gotten a call for an interview with the way I look and smell!). I appreciate the advice, and you were right on.

Default Still out of work

It's been seven weeks and I'm still out of work. I've applied for over 30 jobs, got one interview, and still waiting to hear the outcome. I've got to plead my case on 7/15 for unemployment. Here in Virginia unless you get laid off you have to pretty much beg to get it. This is getting depressing. I started working a regular job at age 16 and have worked ever since, either part time in high school and college, or full time the rest of the time. Send some good karma my way. I could sure use it!!! Thanks for the support folks!!
Steve

look now may be the time to look at other areas of work until something comes through, go to a construction workers union and try to get into their apprenticeship program for electricians, even if they put you on the reserve list that is $10 per hour as a helper, I know what it feels like I was there very recently and was stuck for about 2 or so months working minimum wage for a slave driver doing manual labor, but my family stayed fed and sheltered and that out weighs the downside. Hang in there, and have you tried looking at craigslist for jobs?

Good thoughts continue to flow your way from out here near the Pacific. I have been following your situation in posts over the months, and it really bothers me that you (and others on this forum who have lost jobs or had their positions reclassified) are prevented from making use of skills and talents that are very much needed. I continue to be an optimist on your behalf, and on the behalf of every other member of this list who has described or alluded to a current health or employment challenge.

Hang tough. Bad situations do get better; challenging times do fade into the past.
