    If you need the money then yes.. who cares what kind of job it was. If there's any other alternative then no, don't go back.

    Yeah I would say it depends on the job, the people there, the money etc.

    Also its probably worth noting are they likely to do it again to you?

    If you're making decent money online, then don't go back, go to unemployment and collect money until it runs out and invest your time and money online

    This guy tells the truth. I would go for unemployment if you are making decent money from the interwebz, that way you can focus 100% of your time into your marketing or whatever it is you may do and increase your income, but if your in a needy situation and you're not making anything online then I'd go back, yes it will feel awkward, but it's a job and your getting money, who cares.

    dude I got laid off 2 times from the same job. Got hired and then laid off because they thought I was job looking. Rehired me a week later. Went back and got laid off year and half later because of the economy.

    This happens worldwide every goddamn day. What helps? If you need the money and can accept for yourself that you are working for cold heart machines then I seee no problem. Be cold heart too.

    I think so.

    They seriously did not give you a reason? You sure it was not a lay off? I work at Best Buy (seasonal) right now and this kinda worries me.

    I was fired from Target for ringing myself up for gum but they THOUGHT I rang myself up for $250 dollars. :rolleyes: Trust me. I only rang up gum. Other people were doing it too and it seems like they only ganged up against me. I freakin did EVERYTHING there and had the best review and was awarded for it. We had people that were not washing their hands after leaving the bathroom and handling food. They're still there.

    I called employee relations and all that. They said I might be offered my job back because of all the evidence I had and I decided against it. You are right. It would be too weird and to deal with that bitch manager who was so quick to accuse me of stealing $250 dollars...impossible.

    I am pretty happy at Best Buy now but I am only seasonal so...I hope I have a job after the holidays.

    Good luck!!

    I was a part time, my manager said he had no idea and that he would get me back. All this happened in a few hours, waiting for my manger to get back to me now.

    Thanks for the support guys
