paulflexes saidThis is pretty common among most larger businesses. They know that if they give people a notice, almost always someone will vandalize the place.
This is also the reason I don't believe in giving a notice before quitting a job, either...don't give them a chance to turn the tables on you.
This is a pretty sad statement to how workers (employees) are treated in this county. No respect and completely dispensable.
The saddest part is that it's true...some people really will vandalize a place when they know their job is about to be cut. It's the whole "go out with a bang" mindset.
And the same holds true for putting in a two week notice at most places. The company will do everything in its power to make you leave (or fire you if they can) before the two weeks are up. I've only give a two-week notice once in my life, and regret it. My job didn't get cut early, but it sure was a living hell those two weeks.
The simple fact is, you cannot trust coworkers, no matter how "friendly" they are. When it comes down to the wire, it's every man for himself. Personally I won't work at the same place with a friend, and I won't make hangout buddies at my workplace. Because, when it's time to go, I'm out of there without a word, and don't want the backlash.
