I orginally met with Aisha Nodd at Aerotek on January 20, 2010. I was setup for an interview at Ceva Logistics that same Friday. I was hired on the spot by the person I interviewed with, which Aerotek said rarely ever happens.
I started working that following Wednesday with Ceva. My first issue was the fact that it took forever for Aerotek to finish my background check and when I called and inquired about the status of my background she was kind of rude and asked my if there was a problem with it. I was anxious to start working and I told her that.
Anyway...after working at Ceva for almost a month and only hearing good things about my work all of sudden on Friday evening of February 19, after I had worked ALL DAY, I got a call from Aisha telling me Ceva ended my assignment. I was upset because first I wasn't expecting to be let go and then the company told Aerotek that I had to be micromanaged and I was a little off task.
I'm pissed because my supervisor never said anything to me about my work performance nor did I have to be micromanaged because three days after I started working at Ceva she had a panic attack, had to be taken from the job by ambulance and was gone for a week. I came to work during this time as usual and worked "without supervision". I was never told anything about my work nor was I ever off task.
When I asked Aisha about another assignment she told me that since I had been fired that Aerotek could no longer work with me. She never asked what happened or anything. She automatically sided with Ceva. I spoke with her supervisor Casey and he said they have to believe their client as if employer's don't lie. I told him I was a client as well and that it was unfair that I was let go without any reason or complaint told to me or Aerotek.
Now they are trying to deny my unemployment based on this. I know that Texas is an "at will" state, but something needs to be done because you can be fired for no reason at all, denied unemployment, and there is basically nothing that you can do about it.
I plan on filing a greivance against Aerotek and Ceva because I was under the impression that by state law you have to be notified if there is a problem with your work and be given the opportunity to correct it before you are terminated.
I recommend that no one works for Aerotek because they are only concerned about the companies and not the people that go out and work at these places. If it were not for use places like Aerotek wouldn't even be in business!
