    snagajob is crap... more of the same jobs you just left. Try Indeed

    Also, go to the source... your local workforce.job search place-- they have resources available to you, and are very equipped to help you find employment. They'd be much more helpful to you than monster, and are there for the specific purpose of helping you find employment and training... much better than searching solely on your own.

    Congrats Tunick!

    You deserved it in the best way possible. Now just imagine what next year could be like! Good luck with the job hunt.

    Congrats! I actually think this is a great Christmas present for you, you might look back at this Christmas fondly, perhaps your best ever.

    Also, why are you even thinking about appealing? This is a good thing!

    Enjoy the holiday and then start stalking jobs. That's key, you gotta stalk jobs, you can't just casually pursue them.

    After 8 years, you should threaten to appeal and sue and make lots of noise so they pay you a big $ settlement just to go away. See for example, Ed Norton's character in Fight Club. Good stuff.

    Yeah... I'm sorry to say it, but this is key. You gotta ditch the neckbeard for a while--seriously. That thing will hinder you.

    plus, can you imagine the amount of food that will fall out of it? it could feed you for at least a week and save you money to boot!

    The bright side is that you can stay away from there for a while and then pepper spray whoever fired you next year on Black Friday. Just be sure to wear gloves to avoid getting your prints on the spray cannister and have a disguise you can ditch in a hurry too.

    It sucks losing a job, but you move on, find something else, and learn to deal with it. If anything, being unemployed for a brief period helped me to learn what things I should have on hand at all times and what things I can do without. It's also good to see you get out of a place which caused you so much grief, although I will admit to missing the chance to prank call you, that was fun.

    Congrats, Tunick! Every year you say it's your last year at Wal-Mart and it finally was! I agree with David about not becoming an unemployed depressed couch potato. Easier said than done. Good luck. :)

    I know that place was driving you crazy. Just as well to be rid of it! Good luck searching for a new job--I'm sure you'll find something much better!

    Hey, that's right. He actually did leave Wal-Mart in 2012, just like he said he would (even if it's probably not the way he would have wanted it).

    Just how many spotlights has Arlon stolen in his time here? Perhaps Tunick can get a temp job doing inventory on them and returning them to their rightful owners.
