Arbonne has not only fired all of it’s Canadian Regional and District Sales Managers but it seems that the company also thinks you are a stupid idiot.
I can not possibly think of another explanation when I read the email blast that was sent to me by an Arbonne associate.
Just take a moment and read the following quotes from the email and make your own judgement:
We would like to take this opportunity to let you know that effective yesterday, March 7, 2012, a business decision was made to eliminate the Arbonne Regional and District Sales Manager positions in Canada.
OK, it was a business decision, but don’t business decisions typically have to do with how your business is doing, right? I mean if you are firing a bunch of regional and district sales managers in a particular location, you might suspect that business is not so hot in that location.
However, Arbonne wants you to believe that everything is great.
Here’s more from the email:
Please understand that this was strictly a business decision and has no bearing on the future of Arbonne Canada. Arbonne Canada’s future has never looked better and we know 2012 will be our best year yet!
Wow. If this wasn’t so sad, it would be hilarious. Who in the world writes this crap?
Let me see if I have this straight…
Arbonne is firing all of it’s Canadian Regional and District Sales Managers and it’s a business decision but the business decision has no bearing on the future of Arbonne Canada.
Even though the company just eliminated a bunch of jobs that support Arbonne reps in Canada, the future has never looked better and they expect 2012 to be their best year ever!
Kind of like: “Hey we just went bankrupt and because of that great news, we are going to do $2 Billion in sales in 2012”. Sources tell me that Arbonne actual sales in 2011 were under $350 million. Pretty hard to get from $350 million to $2 Billion when you are laying off sales support staff, don’t you think?
