I got let go from another retail company over a year ago. Middle mgmt..Ax was swung at people in the higher pay scales from what I know & who I spoke with that was let go. On-going reorg for the past 7 years etc. Another round of layoffs are occurring again at my previous employer from people I keep in touch with.
Read about the Toys layoffs & Lowes layoffs...so figured I would chime in.
What I learned is that we are all just a #. I did 6 + year at my previous employer.....boss called me around 8 AM from HQ and told me the news.
I was out of work for 4 months before I landed at a new job. Always s---ed telling possible employers what happen and why you are looking for a job. I went on around 10 interviews....before I got hired. FYI am 46 years old.
I went through the typical mental games after it occurred....
Retail is a tough world these days and I am looking for a way out
