"The one thing I did like about the company, was the fact I was the manager and that gave me the ability to speak up on behalf of the employees and voice concerns about other problems I found at the store. And when I received the 3 day pay or vacate notice, due to the fact the owner owed almost a years worth of rent, I called a meeting with them. I explained to them what was going on. I told them what little I knew. I told them if they chose to quit, I would completely understand. If they chose to stay, that would be great. They asked me what I was going to do. I told them I was staying, that I had a store to run and that I would stay until they either kicked me out or locked me out. All of them, each of my employees stayed with me up to the very end. The very last day. They trusted me. I had been honest with them. They respected me and were loyal. Not loyal to the company, they were loyal to me. Because I treated them like they mattered."
