How does it feel to see your company gutted like an animal being butchered? No TRC, top level executives bailing like rats on a sinking ship...

Doesn't bother me, I still get my quarterly bonus and company matching my 401k. There have been many improvements to the company since you were let go, if that was the case. Just worry about yourself bro

About my DO.....

He has a drawl
He's from the South
He loves when his superiors
Ejaculate in his mouth.

He thinks he is funny
And that he has wit
He got to his current position
Because he does not spit.

Explaining why it is a good idea to take out a loan with AGF/SPRINGLEAF is like explaining why it is a good idea to buy furniture or appliances through Rent-A-Center: The costs just don’t add up.
AGF/SPRINGLEAF will claim that sending them a Cease and Desist letter is ALWAYS a bad idea, but there are definitely situations where it is necessary to do so. My posts regarding this always state that you can still be sued, and I have never claimed someone should not pay their bills. However, they continually try to distort the truth by claiming that I have. One should consider the true reasons why AGF/SPRINGLEAF doesn’t want to be sent these letters.
AGF/SPRINGLEAF wants to be in their debtor’s ear as much as possible, not merely to get them to pay their bills, but to sell them as much debt as possible, no matter how unwise it is. They seek to keep people as uninformed and in-the-dark about their rights as possible. There are good reasons why the Fair Debt Act was passed, and their company has a horrible track record with so many who have worked for them as well.Look at the rude, insulting comments being made on this public website by current AGF/SPRINGLEAF employees posing as laid-off or fired employees and ask yourself if these are the kinds of people you want to be indebted to.
AGF/SPRINGLEAF often solicits people for additional loans that are not within their best financial interestsThese people are not deadbeats, yet AGF/SPRINGLEAF lies to them in order to make them vulnerable to their sales tactics. Not all businesses do these kinds of things. These people have a right to use the Fair Debt Act to get AGF/SPRINGLEAF o leave them alone.
According to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Consumers being harassed by creditors must cease to do so after being contacted by certified mail by the debtor indicating their desire to only be contacted by mail.If you decide after contacting the debt collector that you don’t want the collector to contact you again, tell the collector – in writing – to stop contacting you. Here’s how to do that:Make a copy of your letter. Send the original by certified mail, and pay for a “return receipt” so you’ll be able to document what the collector received.Once the collector receives your letter, they may not contact you again, with two exceptions: a collector can contact you to tell you there will be no further contact or to let you know that they or the creditor intend to take a specific action, like filing a lawsuit. Sending such a letter to a debt collector you owe money to does not get rid of the debt, but it should stop the contact. The creditor or the debt collector still can sue you to collect the debt, however. "

Jeff,

I'm not going to let you run my life, even if you can blackmail me through my job in behalf of your cronies in Indiana.

I've done excellent work for you, and you are corrupt and descpicable for doing these things to me. Your efforts only make me want to act out more. You have no business doing this.

I will say this I've read this blog from the start even participated a time or two. I always saw people get on here and talk about how much better things were at other companies and I always thought well those people just didn't want to put in the work to be successful this place isn't that bad. However after they let go of Lance Groves in October I decided to leave. I could no longer work for a company that uses up even the best employees and then shows them the door when they no longer figure into the long term plans. I was very apprehensive about leaving I had a great relationship with my dm but I just couldn't watch the company be dismantled anymore. Much to my surprise after 3 months gone the others were right. There is life away from Springleaf and it's great. I don't have to worry about Ramos demanding we close 4 loans or we can't go home wage and hour laws be dammed. I don't have to trade e-mails with fellow bm's in other states hearing how their dm won't let them call their QAC because what goes on in "his district " is no ones business. It's great to work somewhere where you feel respected and an important part of the team. It's only been 90 days but my advise get out if you can there is life away from Springleaf and it's wonderful !!!!!

You decided to leave after they let Lance go? Hell, that is reason enough to stay... Who do you think was responsible for the work environment in Texas?

I can think of a few more Impalas that need to be parked.

Having spent many years in Texas I would say the reason for the work environment was Gwin and Ramos not Lance I know a lot of people that worked in Houston or Dallas that didn't have issues with environment I had no issue with the way my dm treated me given the circumstances if lance did anything wrong it was not standing up to them. I heard Gwin had the gall to stand up and ask "what are you going to do different this year" well after failing at her last two assignments maybe she should be asking that question in the mirror

That is giving Groves too much credit. This is a man that kept 2 terrible DM's in DFW (both are still employed) and ran 2 good DM's out of state (Thompson & Partridge).
