Introduction:Being fired or terminated at work is one of the most traumatic situations most people ever go through. In addition to being emotionally devastating, it can also be financially disastrous. Although being fired is sometimes beyond your control, there are often things done that may have contributed to the employee termination. Honestly assess your behavior at work and make sure to avoid these common ways to get fired.
Slacking on the job will also get you fired. You may think no one realizes or cares that you're goofing off, turning your work in late, taking too many personal calls or spending too much time in the break-room, but you would be wrong. Coworkers do notice and feel justified in complaining to management about you, especially if they feel their work load has increased because of your slacking. Slacking is one of the fastest ways to find yourself looking for work.
Being absent frequently is an easy way to convince your supervisors that they can get along without you. When you're not present and someone else has to cover for you, it simply convinces your supervisors that you are dispensable and easily replaced. Calling out frequently and without good excuse is one of the most likely ways to get fired.
No one likes to work with a grouch. A negative attitude spills over to the rest of the employees and ruins company morale. A negative attitude in an employee who deals with the public can be a liability to the entire business. Leave your bad attitude at home to avoid employee termination.
Padding your time card by refusing to punch out during breaks or working longer than scheduled without permission is cheating the company and makes your supervisor look bad when labor expenses are totaled. Employees who are liabilities to their supervisors usually find themselves looking for a new job.
Stealing from the company will not only get you fired, it may also get you a criminal conviction. Most managers realize that employee theft can be a large drain on profits and have been thoroughly trained to watch for it. In addition, modern cash registers keep incredibly detailed information about every transaction, making it virtually impossible to hide any type of theft. Video cameras and other monitoring devices are also used not only to watch for customer theft, but to monitor employees as well. Steal from your company and you will definitely be looking for work.
Being discharged or fired at work not only affects your current work situation, but will also affect your future prospects for many years to come, as professional references will be needed for future job applications. Take precautions at work, always act professionally, and avoid committing any of the top five ways to get fired.
