"You've Got Mail"

Radio Shack, holding true to it's announced plans to cut back the amount of employees working at the Fort Worth headquarters by about 400, did begin to notify personnel that their employment there was terminated immediately ... via email. That's right, the company did not even have enough nerve to sit these individuals down with a supervisor and address them face to face ... kind of like when you stop in a local Radio Shack retail store and have to practically beg the 18 year old nerd who works there to help you because he too busy either playing with the display computers or on the phone with his buddies. Quite frankly, I'm really not sure how the company has managed to stay in business, let alone remain competitive with all the other national chain stores out there. Finding out that employee terminations were cowardly issued via electronic messaging just seems to put the last piece in the puzzle for this outfit in my opinion. As a severance compensation, employees got one to three weeks pay for each year of service, up to 16 weeks for hourly employees and 36 weeks for those with base bay of at least $90,000. I wonder if that was direct deposited?

What a bunch of chicken shits.

Did they think the employeees would riot when they were told?

I will never buy from Radio Shack again.
