So, I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned it here or not, but I’ve always had a very good working relationship with my general manager at Ultimate, John Imholte. He has managed the Woodbury location since it opened, and had worked for that company (in its various forms) for a mighty long time. Like 14 years or something. I’m not sure exactly, but it was a long time.
I was therefore devasatingly upset when I showed up to work on Friday to discover that they had unceremoniously fired him. As far as I know, without cause. And so I had some less than gracious words for the regional manager-slash-shitbag who was responsible, Kevin Lilliquist.
And now I need a job. Again. Damn, if this isn’t getting old. But I cannot, in good conscience, continue to work for such a clueless and brain-dead organization as Ultimate Electronics. Both Mr. Imholte and myself have tried numerous times to effect change, which (I imagine) is exactly the reason they shitcanned him.
What a bunch of ass clowns. My heart goes out to all the great guys that I worked with in that location. I hope that you guys find something better soon, too. Ultimate clearly is just not going to stop sucking anytime soon.
