Hey guys, I feel so loved. Sorry to leave you hanging – it turned into a royal mess.
So… back in October 2012 – My FH was suspended for 2 weeks for “investigation” into him possibly allegedly stealing from his new company. The two weeks stretched into four weeks without word.
We gave up hope, and were scrambling looking for new jobs like crazy.
Jos. A. Bank – a high end men’s retail company if you aren’t familiar – was looking for a new department manager. It’s sales. My FH can sell Sand to a man in the desert so I had him apply, even though he’s not a “suit” type of guy.
Within two days they called him, interview – send him in the run for another interview. He wound up getting offered a job with a slightly lower base salary ($1 less per hour) but with 5 – 8 percent commission. Plus it turns unionized after 3 months, health benefits, vacation and sicks day s – all things the other company didn’t offer.
He accepted – we’re both relieved that in less than a month he landed a new job. Something I fear as he has no college degree and his work history is all over the place
Other company comes back – We’ll take you back! It appears the manager had been stealing money from the company for a long time but was stupid enough to do it this time, on a day and time my FH wasn’t even in the store. So it traced back to him – caught red handed.
However, they were lik e- we have to shift around personnel to get a new, trained manager in there to shore up the loation – we might not be able to put you back to work for another 2-3 weeks.
Needless to say – FH left behind the old job, took the new one with Jos. A. Bank. Things have been great, he loves his new boss and my jeans & T-shirt guy has transformed into a snazzy dresser.
It was a rough month or so, but eh, we made it through.
