    "Do Not Go Here As a Veteran"

    I worked at WEG Electric Corp. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The product is quality and can meet many design configurations

    Cons

    US Leadership is unethical! They are comfortable lying when it suits their needs. I was a reservist when I was hired by WEG. My annual training (AT) was coming and I offered to start after my AT. I was assured they supported my veteran status and that the company insisted on paying me while on military orders. I thought is was pretty cool and accepted the position. A few weeks after starting the President of the US office called me into his office and explained that he expected me to use my vacation time while on military orders. I explained that he was under no obligation to pay me, but that equally I cannot be required to use my vacation time while on orders. I contacted my Employer Support for Guard and Reserve (ESGR) in hopes that we could find an amicable resolution. The liaison from ESGR called and spoke to the office president and called me following describing him as "the most obstinate person he'd ever dealt with". Two days later I was terminated for supposedly cursing which never happened. They were happy to fabricate false information to circumvent the laws we have in place to protect our veterans. Even if I had cursed, there were no complaints that I had cursed at anyone nor had I acted aggressively towards another employee or customer. It was simply "I was heard cursing". It was a clear fabrication to use my state's "right to work" laws to bypass ESGR guidelines and absolving the company of any punishment for discrimination.
