My sincere condolences to the HSN St. Petersburg employees who received a pink slip for the holidays last Thursday. HSN claims the layoffs are "less that 1% of the workforce", but that is still a bitter pill to swallow for the unfortunate few.
"It’s FUN Here" – but not for everyone.
I wish you all good fortune and great jobs in the near future.
You’re right. I had the old miracle mop years ago and it would never fully wring the water out like the spin mop. The top and the bottom part of the mop stayed wet so if I were you I would pass due to your floor. If you notice in the presentation when she touched the bottom of the mop after wringing it, her hand was very wet.
Everyone is fair game when protecting the financial bottom line, interesting not hearing from any of the community monitors on this one!
Shame on all companies…they always wait till the holidays to do this sort
of thing, Why don’t they do it in the middle of the year when people have
time to find employment and able to enjoy holidays. That one person is
not the only one affected, it’s their whole famiy.
HSN, I’m really surprised by your actions.
I can understand small companies that are really struggling, but these
type of large companies….shame.
Yes, losing one’s job is always tough. Tougher for some than others. It has happened to me once in my career and I’ve seen it happen to so many others. Scary, Yes; but we survived. Sometimes it turns out to be a Blessing.
I wish companies would start at the Top and middle when they are faced with layoff situations. Don’t always throw out the ones at the lower end of the pay scale.
Often inefficiencies at the top Cause the situation, but the hard-working bottom pays the price.
MissAnthrope, I am so sorry to read this. I hope these people are able to find other employment soon.
This country is in an unrecoverable position. The loss of all of these jobs is devastating to families and the economy.
I’d also heard that Amazon might close a very large facility in the east coast, which would mean the loss of over 4,000 jobs.
