Live2shop has pointed out exactly what the rest
of us know: turnover is high, the hype is fading due
to lack of results to back it up, the rah-rah us
useless and, regardless of how good an individual is, a
great office is failing due to trying to do things
Dunkel's way. Live2shop's office is a representation of
what's going on throughout that company. So why then do
people continue to bury their heads in the sand and
pretend it doesn't go on? Why not admit it, address it,
fix it, make it better and create something great?
Why continue to allow it to happen by pretending that
it doesn't exist? AND, it's not JUST
upper-management. The rah-rah's on here do the same thing. I don't
I still have many friends there that I wish the
best to. My decision was my own choice as each of us
has a choice. Mine was difficult because there was no
anger. The people on my teams were and still are the
greatest. That is what made it hard. I stayed away from the
rest of the nonesense and just focused on making
money, having fun and delivering. I do know of many
managers that act as you say. My day was based around
adding value to my teams. That's all ... May everyone do
what makes them happy without taking from someone
Please don't take it personally if it does not
apply. I am speaking from experience from working under
a manager who did nothing but drink, wonder when
they were going to get their next date and take credit
for everyone elses work. This person did not train
anyone, but had others do it, because they didn't have a
clue how to. I am not trapped, however. I changed my
situation and am much happier now. I'm just waiting for the
"what goes around comes around" to happen so this will
all come to light. I have definitely moved on by
choice, did you?
that the souls trying to be saved are employees,
I got the impression that bucsfan is telling
investors to stay the hell away from this management.
Anyway, this board is like no other that I've ever seen!
The moral there must be terrible, my guess is the
only thing that will fix this company is to clean
house starting upstairs. It is becoming appearent to me
that the only way for us to make any money on this
stock is for Romac to get bougth out. Anybody have any
ideas on what it would take to make this more
attractive as a buy-out?
I have been quitely sitting
here while some bash and others hash out the details.
It appears that live2shopnordy is off somewhere
else...please enjoy and let you past be past. As for the
others, if you are still with kforce, then get on the
ball. It has come to pass that when you bitch to
someone about something 9:10 times, they will not
Therefore, those of you that are "trying to save some
souls"...leave that for the ministries and please leave.
Where do you work. All I ever heard was rah rah.
I'm the manager that trained, hired and motivated 17
people and help them become successful and hit their
numbers in spite of all the #@%&. Slam me if you choose.
I'm out and your not. I chose from several offers.
I'm free and your trapped. It's that simple. I'd also
change my identity to "follow blindly 2000". It fits
better, don't you think?
Live2shop is probably a "new" identity that a
romac/kforce basher came up with and tried to sound like a new
poster with some genuine concerns. Just more
KFRC is up to 11 1/2 with volume picking up. Something
appears to be up.
In today's edition of Investors
Daily, it was quoted that Nielsen ratings during w/e
4/30 for job sites incurred significant activity.
Monster, Careerpath, and Hotjobs were mentioned as having
the biggest traffic increases (no kforce, though).
Nevertheless, it's positive news.
I agree-someone recently started using
"kforceemployee", which is not me.
AS for things being
better at kforce or elsewhere, it depends on the person.
Yes, there is a staffing model here that works and
management tries to teach that, rather than letting new
people sink or swim on their own. I respect my friends
who have left the co to go it alone. For others, the
team environment and the culture at kforce is a great
fit. Because certain people do not excel in this
environment doesn't mean it's a sinking ship. Most
consultants who are good make more money here than they
would've even dreamed about previously and they have a
high degree of personal and professional satisfaction.
a now former employee speaking the truth as they
see it. I know this can hurt so therefore your
denial. I have made the break and thought I'd be
thrilled. I'm not. It's hard. It's one of the most
difficult decisions I have ever made. I walked away from
people I care about and a position I once loved. I
realize it was inevitable and know soon I will be
relieved and move on. I will be successful again because
of my core values and work ethic. ROMlong... the
truth may hurt for a while but then it will set you
for you insights and advice. I needed to make my
decision this weekend because I am not good at pretense. I
am either in 110% and pushing with my teams or I am
out. I need to do what is right for them. They need
not suffer for my lack of enthusiasm. They will make
their own decisions as to their level of committment.
Well time for truth ... I will post my resignation
results later. Thanks again and have a wonderful day!
