It's just sad all the way around. I still have great friends in Evansville and hate to see any of them go through what I have. Keep us posted "Still here".
Thankful

There are 9 pages of career opportunities posted on their website. Unfortunately, the people let go from Evansville were in positions that were meant to service products we no longer have. For most of them, they knew it was inevitable. I've been lucky to keep my job through everything, but I am not naive enough to think it couldn't happen to me. I am thankful that I still have my job and my heart goes out to those who lost theirs.

What's sad is those with 20-30 years on the job that have been let go. That's a lot of expirence down the drain. They were promoting people with 1-1 1/2 years on the job to managers just waiting for them to fail and then letting so many long time employees go a couple years ago. It was a major loss for many of those people. Stay on your toes and watch your back at all times. Only trust those you know very well, those you think are your friends will take your job in a heart beat. Happened to my old boss here in IL. It can happen you anyone.

collector you owe money to does not get rid of

Good gracious , listening to this guy is like listening to a 6 year old teach a history listen, it just doesn't add up? Make a post & post it certified, that u no longer wish to listen to his bulls#%t, keep a copy of your post & watch how he responds to this action, he will have you believe that he is not a loser & has good credit, when we all know the truth, he will try to change this post around to hide his true worthless self. My goodness, over a year now, get a life, or better yet a job!! Post away buddy, u have been served & anything said that is stupid (guarenteed to happen from u) I will likely sue you, as many others already have!!!

AGF is stacked with backstabbing Higher Management from ADO's on up. I was let go years ago due to reallignment and not being in the Old Network. Also, an ADO from STL was was sleeping with a married BM but nothing happened to him. Again, all about who you know. She later became his wife, after her divorce. Sorry to hear about all the employees out of jobs, but not sorry about the company. I worked for them 10 years busting my a$$ for nothing.

I agree I sure hated giving up almost 30 years, but never been happier and healthier in my life. The good old boy network cost alot of people their jobs all because good people wouldn't put up with the BS. It was all over St. Louis, Chicago, Evansville and as long as those running the company now it will continue.

I agree. There are (were) even Sr Management that knew but turned the shoulder to those activities because of the numbers. You could screw your employees, go out drinking and driving, heck even drink on the job and still get away with it, as long as you were connected or put up the numbers.

Mike Kearns (a very likeable and good dude who hired me back when we were still Manufacturers Hanover Consumer Services - a great company to get your start in finance - he was an old CIT dude as was Al - I learned tons from those guys) probably had the good sense and wisdom to get out years ago. Frank Reed probably said adios too.
