Circuit City and the American Dream
I suppose I've had a different experience. I my field, I'm somewhat in demand so people try to keep me. However, I've been seriously working for 3 years and changed jobs almost every year. As openings come up, I climb up the ladder. My employeer has both a "penison" and a 401K - I only have faith in the 401K.
I understand what Circuit City is doing. As a company I'm pretty convinced they're over with. I can't recall the last time I went to one of their stores although I think that was for giftcard or something. They're trying to save money in whatever way they can. I really think they have to change how they do business and the way their stores are setup to compete with BestBuy but I really think it is too late for that. Anyway, I'll probably be buying stuff online.
