Oh ... Really?

Nothin’ Personal

Just doin' business ...

Details of the transaction weren't revealed, but Answer Financial will keep about 80 percent of the 200-employee Capital One staff now in Oak Ridge, officials said.

But it still sucks. Hard.

As noted, we do get a severance package. The "career transition services" leave something to be desired though ... we got a list of employers that said they would be interested in us. And, as also noted, they will be expanding in coming months, and we are eligible for re-hire. In fact, they will call us first, before posting any job openings. Right now, I am completely undecided about what I want to do. When Capital One took over, the way we did business changed ... it was more selling, less focus on service. I am not much of a sales person. Ironically enough, from what we were told about AFI, they do business much the same way as we did before Capital One, which I am good at. Oh well ... But as I said previously, I think I would do better to get focused back on computer/techie/geeky stuff again.

Today was my last day. Had the "exit interview" and packed up the last of my stuff. I held my head up high and took it like the whiny-assed, crybaby that I am. It was the best job I have ever had, wonderful people, great pay and bennies. After a couple dozen tearful hugs, I left for the last time. But life, as they say, goes on. I went to the grocery store, came home and cooked dinner, sat down to read email and news ... all just like any other normal evening. But tomorrow morning, it will all change, and that is probably when it will really hit me ...

But it's nothing personal ... just part of doing business.
