Boss' Bombshell

My boss called an office meeting this morning. With no advanced notice he just said he is retiring. Today is his last day. They are going to keep the office open so I at least have a job till next summer. Depending on if I want to go with either of the two agents they will be putting on in his place. No advanced notice nothing. Kinda shocked. But at least the Execs are keeping everyone through the end of the year. Possibly though till next summer.

How crazy! It would have been nice to have some kind of warning - makes me wonder if something else wasn't/isn't going on with your boss. Praying that your transition is a smooth one and that you find a job if/when the time comes.

I can see the shock value in that, however that's a positive upside in that you'll have some time to see how things are going to play out. Praying for your peace of mind and job security and wisdom for future decisions.

Thanks for the Prayers they are GREATLY appreciated. Yeah made us wonder what was going on. The exec's only got 48 hours notice he was retiring. And I have worked for this insurance company (starting with my father as an agent for 25+ years) for 32 years and I have never see this happen. Shocker to say the least.

Thanks everyone. The office will continue to stay open so I have a job through the end of the year. Thank God. We will see if it lasts till summer. There are some other options that have presented themselves so we shall see.
