Go Back   VW Forum - VZi, Europe's largest VW, community and sales > Community > Chat/Discussion

Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

I've been there in 2008 and it's not nice. Have you tried speaking to rival companies and see if they're hiring? If you're good at your job, and it sounds as if you are, they may well have heard of you and might be able to take you on

Good luck buddy, going to be alot of people in the same boat.

I think the owner of our small company is in it for the long haul (he does have 2 other larger companies open with one in the same building). We have been on furlough since mid April and hardly any orders since march - not a surpise as main customers are schools and events.

Was half expecting to be made redundant while on furlough as we have 3 months notice periods(only 4 employees), just a wait and see game and fingers crossed for everyone.

I do fear for some people who seem to have been treating it as a everythings fine paid holiday - may have a serious shock when they get back to reality with a bang.
