I just want to offer you all my deepest apologies. I am aware I swore to post more often and that I have not done that. It has definitely been a trying few weeks.
About two weeks ago I found out I was being made redundant from work.
Basically my company is pulling our branch out from the department store we are based in. Back in the boom time an agreement was made with our host store whereby we would be given a target and if we did not meet this target we would have to pay a percentage of the difference as penalty. This is on top of our usual sales commissions and rent payments. Naturally as the boom ended and things got harder, we found it harder and harder to meet these targets, all the while these targets where increasing. Even though we were one of the best brands on the ladieswear floor we still had to leave as we could not make these penalty payments, leaving 5 staff members unemployed.
Unfortunately I don’t get a redundancy package and because I only earn a weekly wage I have left myself needing to find new job immediately, obviously as I am now finished college I need to find a job ASAP. Which is what I am occupying myself with at the moment as well as working full time to cover my manager’s holidays so please excuse me for the lack of postings, I really will try to keep ya’ll updated.
