As the snow falls silently here, these appear from the virtual white-out, linked from CafePharma:
. . . .RE: Just Got Word:
01.07.10 @ 7:32 AM -- Entire Northeast S/P to be wiped-out (Maine, NH, Vemont, Mass, CT, RI). . . .
01.07.10 @ 8:31 AM -- I'm in Northeast and I'm out. Manager said they had a lot of bad calls to make today. . . .
01.07.10 @ 8:40 AM -- NE kk rep. Displaced. . . .
Re: ALPHABETICAL ORDER OR WHAT?
01.07.10 @ 8:34 AM -- I was called at 7:30 Eastern and let go. . . .
Retained reps are being called first. Confirmed. . . .
Re: KENTUCKY CASUALTIES. LIST THEM HERE. NOT JUST MELANIE'S GROUP
01.07.10 @ 9:15 AM -- So far Kentucky seems spared. Myself, and 3 teammates are ok. This was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. The BEs and underperformers will walk. . . .
01.07.10 @ 8:44 AM -- My manager told me that she made the decision who she called first. My call is at 9 am, I was told they are short calls. . . .
01.07.10 @ 9:33 AM . . . .Everyone in my district was let go, and there wasn't one BE in the whole damn group! On the cardio side, 14 of 16 were let go, and there are several top performers in that group as well!! I personally won a president's club with this shithole of a company in 2008 and was let go. . . .
01.07.10 @ 9:34 AM -- NE EE rep here top 10 in region = Terminated. . . .
01.07.10 @ 10:26 AM -- WEST COAST calls are trickling in, slowly. Some district calls began at seven this morning. I noticed on Twitter that some groups were notified early as the manager obtained permission from the entire district to phone at seven. I would assume other announcements from the West will be out in an hour or so.
Thus far about 75% of SP let go, absolute annihilation. I was kept as I work in the boondocks where one Merck rep left for maternity and the other retired. Unfortunately all of my friends were let go.
Peace, -- M. . . .
01.07.10 @ 11:43 AM -- Bloodbath in the Dallas Fort Worth area!!!! Looks like 90% gone. . . .
More to come -- will update later. Good luck to one and all.
