Everyone Is Fired

We’ll start with a great story of how everyone was fired but they got a new job by the end of that week. This contract project manager was the best boss ever, and he told us why:

“I had to lay off my entire staff (and myself) with 8 hours notice.

I was the contract project manager on a government project (office type work). At our periodic review on a Thursday, the government announced they would not be renewing our contract and our last day was Friday (the next day).

I brought everyone into the conference room first thing the next day, let everyone know that we were all out of a job and that today was everyone's last day. I had everyone email me their resumes, and we went over everyone's on the conference room projector and updated them over the course of the day. I then printed out "reference" sheets for everyone, and we all spent the remainder of the day writing letters of recommendation for each other. I ordered everyone pizza, and bought everyone a round of drinks at the bar next door. Most folks had jobs by the end of the next week.” - Reddit user shortadamlewis
