As some of you know, I've been an assistant manager at our local Geeksquad precinct which was opened in Ottawa in February. Coming from a call center job (American Dell Tech support, yuck), then a high pressure computer sales position (6 days a week 10 hours a day,yuck), I finally was working in a close knit store with a good friend of mine who was also technically inclined. Gone were the days of coming home stressed about damn near everything, worrying about clocking in and out, corporate politics and constantly looking over my shoulder while I perused GWJ. 2 days ago we received a fax from headquarters detailing "exciting news" regarding "Project Orange", and we would have a special guest speaker today to talk to us about it.
At 12:00pm today we found out our store will be closed for good *THIS* Saturday. The powers that be have decided to shut us down after a little less than 6 months of operation and move our employees into Best Buy stores.
Needless to say we are all a little miffed about it, especially without the customary 2 weeks notice one usually expects to get about this. So my dream job comes to a close and I yet again become another cog in the machine. The wifey is baking me a cake though, so at least there's that. Anyone looking for a gamer/tech in the Ottawa area?
