Was just let go after 10 years after one shotty year in sales (which sales has been down company wide.) I was a top 40 rep in 2012 and I suppose they were wondering what I have done for them lately. Office ended up 15% down in 2013 and I guess someone needed to take the hit. JW is on his way out and if our office takes a hit like this again, our local GM will be right behind him. Good luck fellas!
Wasn't long before I was snatched up by another logistics company. Better work environment, compensation package is substantially more, company vehicle, etc. Good thing after all :) I will still keep my CHR stock though. Good times!
sounds fishy. you got any margins to speak or the usual Robinson rate slasher who can sell only on price and an occasional truck that shows because he found a sucker who is down on his luck and needs to get paid in 7 days and needs to get home cuz his wife his banging the plumber.
The 10-year chr employee curse. One of my last chr reps told me he thought he was going to get let go soon. I could not understand why, thought he was real sharp. He told me he was coming up on 10 years. Now my next two reps didn't know what a dock leveler was. Although, one was not bad in the looks dept :).
Have also heard there might be some company-wide laying off, so don't feel so bad. They let you go, b/c you were making too much money.
CHRWProud, sorry 2 hear it.Now they'll hire 2 or 3 ppl to take your place( while they ALL earn less than our meager salary & AMT-inducing bonus). Wd b nice if my mgr. would take care of those earning $ 4 her, they just don't give a #$%$. Branch Managers( most of the ones i know) & upper echelon, ONLY care about $$$,...welcome to corporate America. Make the lazy p.o.s. managers DO SOMETHING, aside from 3 hour lunches, and golf every week !!!Sad ...good luk !
CHR Branch Managers don't do a thing. They are part time employees that are paid an ignorant amount of money. Good ol boy network is strong with that group. Our branch had the golden boy group which I wasn't privy to. I never got in the inner circle happy hours, retreats, trips, etc...
