Evening,
For those who advertise in Thomson local,it appaears they went into administration in August with quite a few redundancies.
It now figures why I had numerous calls during June and July about my renewal which isnt due until next Feb. They were trying to get somemore cash in quick.
There is an intended buyout but be carefull before parting with money.
If you pay up front then I would advise you pay monthly because if they go fully bump at least you can stop the payments.
Regards
Antric

I heard that sales staff were called to the head office, where they gathered in two rooms. Everyone in one of the rooms was sacked and told to leave their cars and phones behind, before having to make their own way home. Not really a good way of treating staff if it is true.

Regards,

Alan.

Must have had my instincts twitching this year

I told them to get lost and cancelled the order.

They tried to hold me to the paperwork, but when I pointed out their mistakes and the fact the sales rep had withheld essential information from me they backed down.

Hiya Alan,
Your right.....its not the way to be treated but the way most companies treat there staff nowadays is disgracefull.
At least they were told face to face as agroup as a few companies have done it via email like the one I used to work for.
