I was living in CA.2006. The market was dropping,companies laying off.
Aerotek gave me an assignment in a mortgage company, in Costa Mesa, Ca. After training my team was put on varies teams. I didn't get a desk. I had to take some ones chair that went to lunch.
Then they found me one, i sat with someone at their desk. Next day i had a broken chair. I called Aerotek. I explained, then i got a chair and a desk.
this took several days. I still had no computer. At lunch i called Aeroteck, a little shaken up. Asked me to go back they will straighten things out.
I was not assigned a team, just sat there watching trying and listening to every one else,and listening to every one else,to figure things out.Days had pasted and now i called again, after i went in the next day, and the same thing, and he told me to go back, by now I'm crying begging, and he letting me know I'm abandoning the job, i told him how i was downsized and needed the money. I just could not go back and said i was sorry crying people looking at me.
Back to Arizona i went to regroup, cost of living less expensive and had family there.Time pasted still problems getting a job. Contracting now and then.
2012 i forgot about all that, and in my job search i sent out many resumes. Aerotek called about my resume they saw. I was happy, she was explaining the job, and asked me to hold. A man came on the line and asked if i remembered what happened in CA.
I was so confused, then reminded how i left the company. When i started to recall i became so confused how he after reminding me was on the phone, and told me i could not work for then that after i remembered what happened and how did he know it was me? I didn't do anything wrong? I started to shake and blank out mentally.
It was all so confusing.
So now that I'm looking for jobs i still shake when i see Aerotek 's name, and scared, as to how he found me? why was he doing this? is this a threat? should i be still scared?
Why? I have nightmares
