If John Schnatter resigned before the layoffs, would we have kept the account and all our lost soldiers?

Nah. It seems to me that the relationship between Papa John’s and Laundry Service was headed towards the wall anyway, and LS pulled the plug before PJ’s could. That’s the problem with Papa John’s: It’s difficult to deal with him, but he won’t ever really go away. So there’s really no fixing the fundamental problem.

Doubt it. Remember, he stepped down as CEO and they still kept him on in some capacity. He would never have been removed from the company. I think it was misguided to hire so many people just for that sole business. Could have saved a lot of people if it was just reallocation at the offset.

He stepped down as CEO, I think, last fall after the whole NFL / anthem blow-up. But he still retained the chairmanship, and obviously after a bit of a break, started creeping back into the marketing. So as per AS1, I think he’ll be back. I think the company just gets smaller and smaller, ever so slowly, as they struggle to sell new franchises amidst this marketing cloud.

John will never really go away, he owns the company. He will hide for a bit and resurface until the next debacle.

News is he’s stepped down as Chairman. I’m sure they’ll still find a way to bring him back though, dude can’t disappear.

Hi Everyone,

I’m a UI/UX designer recently laid off from an agency in Detroit. I have 10+ years experience with a background in front-end development. If anyone here is looking for candidates, PM me.

No matter how much good feedback I get and how well received my work is by clients, I constantly assume I’m about to be called in to the CEO’s office and fired.

Why is that?

Follow up post to my last post…My husband was laid off from the company where I also work. I am feeling really isolated / depressed about working and moving forward. I’m also getting to a stage where I’m really sad that people haven’t reached out to either my husband or myself to send well wishes or provide support. It’s like they don’t know what to say or I make them feel awkward so they don’t bother…I’m trying to focus on a few that have been supportive but it’s hard…Any words of advice? 😞

I just heard a couple of days ago that an employee was fired by HR for booking a first class ticket that was *approved* by their direct management. The employee was required to make a trip for a work function that involved C-levels and others from their department in a team building type of event. The employee spent their own money to make this, and to boot is a single mom.

Is it me or does this seem insanely unfair and out of left field? How does management not get in trouble??
