I was terminated from my job at Baxter International yesterday after being accused of doing something I didn't do, last week they moved their business to a new building, at the end of the week they were packing up plasma samples which have to be kept at between -25 to -40 degrees C which is around -125 degrees F. While boxing the plasma they had the freezer door open for a long period of time and an alarm went off when the temperature went above -25 degrees. I wasn't told about this as I was on break when it happened. I came back and transfered a sample to the freezer in question and I was warned about it so I started using the backup freezer. Yesterday I was told that 3 people saw me access the primary freezer 2-3 times after I was told not to, then it became 3-4 times.
If they wanted to make up a reason to terminate me I wish they could have at least got their stories straight. Anyway, I'm going to try for a job with Verizon and look into Information Technology courses. Still, this is been one heck of a bummer.
