Yes, maybe they'll rehire you on the basis of you already knowing how to do your job. Or maybe this is a sign that you're doing something wrong. That's a really stressful situation, OP. Maybe you should look into other employment options to minimize the amount of time you'll spend jobless should you not be rehired.

I would agree, but most of the time it's cheaper for the company to get new people at lower wages then to keep the knowledgeable ones who cost a bit extra.

I agree with 37 and they can usually get away with not giving them all them benefits long time employees have usually earned/accumulated.

I've seen this shit before. They're trying to cut OP's pay in an underhanded way. Flick them off and find a new job, they're not worth your time.

I don't know OP's situation but if they're under new management then sometimes they're forced to. There can be many reasons as to why he has to, no need to be angry.

Or they basically laid him off but was nice enough to give him another chance. Still unfair though.

OP could be a contract worker... I've worked at Boeing for 6 months but I don't actually work for Boeing. I have to apply for the position I've been holding when they finally hire someone as "my" boss (which could be another 6 months or more). Perfectly legal, though.

This is pretty common. Do you happen to work for the WWE? If so, don't forget to bring a folding chair to the interview. It might be a literal free-for-all.

...Or a ladder, or a lead pipe, or a sledge hammer, or a wood table, or head, or an urn, or a baseball by wrapped in barbed wire.....ahh the good old days.

That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. You already have the job. Why the hell are others even applying for it?

Because the company is probably downsizing. What they want to do is go through all the updated resumes and weed out the people that they feel are closer to the bottom of the barrel, skill wise. This is, unfortunately, a common practice in todays economy.

My company did that when they had to reapply for a contract with the government. We all had to reapply and accept reduced wages. It sucks but isn't uncommon
