My current employer has lost the contract for the job site I work at. The good news is that the new company wants to hire all of us when they take over and we get paid the same. This will be the second time this has happened to me. The bad news is it's a new company and there are a lot of unknowns. If everything the new company is saying is true then things will go on pretty much the same if not better then before. But the last company made a lot of promises when they took over that never came true.  So I'm kind of taking everything they say with a grain of salt.

It'd be hard to be worst then the old company and still function as a business. I don't want to go into specifics but the company I currently work for made international news a few years back for doing a really rather terrible job. It seems that failures of management that plagued our existence at the local level were endemic across the company. 

One good thing is the new company has female uniforms. For the past 4 years I've been wearing men's uniforms. I'm not a terribly vain person but I look forward to being able to wear women's pants. Men's pants are not terribly accommodating to my hips or my short short legs. If the new company can get us our uniforms in the first week of working for them I'll be impressed. It took the current company over 2 months to get one of our employee's his uniform when we switched over to them. The office claimed that his uniforms kept getting shipped to New York. I'm not sure how you confuse Wyoming with New York but apparently it happened repeatedly.  Oddly enough after a "surprise" visit from the company management his uniform appeared a few days latter. So like I said it'd be hard to be worst then what we already have.  Here's hoping they can over come my incredibly low expectations.

Well here's hoping. That's pretty ridiculous that they didn't have uniforms for women. Then again, the U.S. military has the same problem, so...competence!

Well I think company wide there were women's uniforms we just weren't allowed to have them or something.  Honestly the uniform situation was bad enough that I had been buying my own pants from Wal-Mart because they could never get anything that remotely fit me.  Wal-Mart at lest had a decent size selection of men's cargo pants and they looked almost identical to our uniform pants.

Oh wow. That's just ridiculous. You should never have to buy anything if your uniform is required. That's their responsibility.

This is the same company that continues to mess up our pay checks, taxes, insurance and gets angry at us for working over time but refuses to hire people to cover said shifts.  It's bad enough that I don't trust them to order clothing that fits. And even if they do they'll just end up sending it to another job site because apparently they need it more. We would ask why the shirts we ordered hadn't come in and they told us they sent them to North Dakota instead. The people that needed shirts had to order them 3 times before they actually showed up. Each time the shirts were ordered but sent some where else.  

Needless to say I didn't want to mess with that bs so I just bought my own pants.

Yeah, no kidding. That's just incompetence at its most absurd. 

Here's hoping the next company is just a smidgen better.
