Unfortunately, my brother-in-law Chris was laid off his 17 year job at CSK yesterday. This came as a surprise to him, even though he was aware that some people would be let go as the company did some restructuring. The restructuring involved eliminating duplicate regional positions, but he was handling a national thing, relating to their on line presence, so he had figured he was safe.
The good news, is he gets 4 months to find his new gig, which I’m quite sure will be no problem. I suggest he take a bit of relaxation time and recharge the batteries.
