I was given a layoff notification while out on company leave for Long Term Disability due to medical conditions. I had an injury which has currently prevented me from returning to full time work. I have steadily made continuous progress and am currently working toward an eventual successful return to employment. I am interested in working for a company that values people as their best asset. I found Boeing very rigid and negative towards me as a employee while rehabilitating due to an injury and an employee currently with a disability. I am firm in my belief I will be able to find a company that views me as an asset and accepts my disability with respect while treating me with dignity and as a valuable member of their team.

Fort Walton Beach- Targeted due to failure of the KC-46 program to deliver on time. Site is part of the defense portion of Boeing and has been going downhill since about 2008, employees are no longer important, only the dollar. Oldest(and usually highest paid) are being forced out by HR and mid level managers hoping to hang onto their jobs. Integrity is rock bottom. Mistakes are being made and covered up by "yes men". Had too much integrity to stay in that enviroment.

Terminated while in my 12th month of disability. I received a call from my manager and a letter notifying me that I was no longer employed by Boeing. Needless to say, I was shocked. Throughout my disability, as requested my doctor provided the required documentation in support of my disability to the Boeing Leave Service Center. Unfortunately, my doctor submitted and signed the required supporting documention but he did not sign it during the last submittal period. I was then terminated because without the date I was told that the form was considered incomplete and the Boeing Leave Service Center refused to use the date the doctor faxed the form to them. I did request a signed form from my doctor but it was out of my control. The letter was dated November 3 and I was due to return to work following my November 16th doctor's appointment. At the age of 62, it was my prayer to work at Boeing until at least 70. Other than being terminated for the above reason, I will say that Boeing is a wonderful company to work for. Awesome management in my department.
