But someone who say goes into Office Team and is put on a temp assignment, it can't go past a year in most states.
You can't "push to get hired" even if you know the job better than the CEO. We are not in the drivers seat dictating what we want. Who wouldn't want to go from "temp" to "permanent employee with benefits?" That's a no brainer. What should I do ... Throw a tantrum until they say yes? The managers know how valuable I am to the company based upon my work, otherwise this temp gig would have been over with a lot sooner, remember, "disposable employees" are easier to let go. However, immediate managers don't have the final say on hiring, that comes from the "top".

No,you don't throw a tantrum. But in 2 yrs no full time positions came avaiblable? No one ever said "gee you have been here a REALLY long time, you shouldn't be temping".

Or, you inquire.

You mention you like working here and ask about about becoming full time.

Very strange.

I applied numerous times for a permanent version of my temporary position. Instead of hiring me, they kept extending my assignment which is finally ending on March 30. My guess is age discrimination is already starting to kick in (even though I'm not yet 50). I've been passed (for the permanent positions) over for people half my age. Whatever. I'm growing weary of the nonsense that goes on in the working world. I've worked full-time for 28 years and have a BA degree and for what I often wonder... My husband is working and we recently relocated to a much less expensive area of the country. We bought a house with cash and have no credit card debt or car loans so we don't need a gob of money to live. I'm thinking very early retirement might be a good idea...

I worked at a Temp agency for the last 3 months, unfortunately I caught the flu, and they have a strict no missing any days during the 6month trial period through the temp agency. Can I collect unemployment I was planning on working at this company for a long time, I picked up every overtime shift I could and now dont know what to do...? Please help..

You can probably get UI but it might take an appeal. File the claim.

A company can have strict attendance rules and fire you for that, but if it's seen as unreasonably strict, your UI shouldn't be denied. However, if intially denied, file for an appeal hearing.
