Great Company; I once thoughtt I had found a career that I would stay until retimement.
Sales Service Manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 15, 2016
This was my best job, it offered me many opportunities for advancement. During my 15 years of employment I was promoted 4-5 times; starting as a secretary in Radio News and eventually finding myself in what I thought during the time to be my dream job; management. It was a great place to work, great wages, benefits and perks. Some of the best years in my career. The Network was eventually purchased by GE.. A few years after the purchase the cutback began, ranging over a period of a few years. Unfortunately, my job was cut. It was only then that I experienced, what I felt at the time to be extremely unfair.
I say this; because I was informed a couple of hours before the end of the day. I had worked hard and was very loyal and felt betrayed.
However, I eventually recovered; and with maturity finally accepted that it was not personal, strictly a business decision. There were other opportunities out there waiting for me; without this incident occurring I would have never voluntarily took the opportunity to explore my options and work in another industry that I eventually found to be just as rewarding, allowing me the opportunity to gain knowledge in an industry that was completely new for entire state of Indiana.
