Krueger International

For the last 6 months I was employed as temp at a Krueger International location. This was my letter to them upon being let go over petty stupidity …

You have people with poor attitudes, poor work ethic, and who take no responsibility for their own actions or attitudes. So instead of dealing with the problem, you get rid of me.

I actually had myself convinced that you ran a better operation that that.

At a town hall meeting the other day they mentioned adding more people to get over the 200 employee mark, but this place just dropped several people, some without any real justification, including myself. Others just leave because of the crap they have to put up with. I stood my ground and pushed myself to improve and learn more. I actually had goals of getting somewhere with this company, and held back my plans to leave the state …

You fire me instead of the guy who doesn’t try to do better and doesn’t really care. You let veteran employees get away with lying to protect themselves. You don’t do anything to give people incentive to care about doing a better job. You tell us to let you when there is a problem, but you don’t really want to know. You want everyone to get a long, but you do nothing about the issues that cause the most damage in a workplace …

Oh, and stupid, harmless little comments are a great reason for firing people while everyone else gets away with foul language, filthy conversation or perverted talk … all the things that I apparently have to tolerate …

Tyler Welch’s last words were “we’re just not going to deal with it anymore” … Oh yes you are because you don’t do anything about the problem! Letting me go doesn’t solve anything. You’re going to continue having them whether I’m there or not because I am not and was not the problem. I had to bite my tongue on many, many occasions with people. More so in the last few weeks than ever before because I was respecting the wishes of my coordinator …

I was beginning to believe in myself again because of what I was learning at this job. After what I’d been thru in the last few years, I had no expectations of being able to bounce back.

I wanted to get hired on so I could expand my job away from just doing table assembly and maybe even get to a position where I was working alone at times. As well as becoming a better employee …

Well thanks for proving me right. K.I. is no better or different than anywhere else … I’m simply not allowed to be who I am, but I have to tolerate everyone else …
