I really wanted to begin work as a corrections officer and that is how this department does it.
I was injured at work. I did not want to report it but it was impossible to keep my injury to myself. I was in too much pain. I reported it and went to the doctor. Just a sprain.
I am now not being called for shifts even though I am okay. I am thinking that they are going to let me go as they are allowed to with my non-permanent status. They aren’t calling me for shifts so what good is it to have a job anyhow. No one has answers for me.
If I get dismissed after only working for 6 months how is it going to look to other departments when I go to interview? This really bites because I love my job.
They do not have to have a reason to let me go, but I have to have a reason to tell my prospective employers as to why I was let go. I wonder what they will tell employers who call them for a reference.
I was a little hesitant to take an on-call at-will job to begin with but thought, what the heck they are sending me to their academy they must be serious. Now I find out that we are disposable because we save them so much cost in overtime pay of other workers they don’t need to treat us right.
