Nia was a determined employee, but her recent promotion at the store had turned her into a strict and intolerable boss.
She managed to survive until she had the idea to reprimand and fire the former caretaker. It has been a week since Nia received the promotion, and she still can’t believe it.
She is now the general manager of one of the fashion giant’s centers.
Years before her promotion, Nia already had many ideas on how to improve the store if given the chance, and she kept them in a folder.
That morning, the folder was proudly placed on her desk as she addressed the staff just before closing time.
The employees responded with nods, knowing glances, and a few kind thank-yous.
However, the staff was offended by such categorical determination.
It wouldn’t be easy for employees to work in an unhealthy atmosphere where the slightest mistake, intentional or unintentional, could cost them the money they relied on to cover their bills in most cases.
They had watched with admiration as an employee who started from the bottom as an intern rose to the top.
One of the company’s former employees, Victor, aged 68, who was always late for personal reasons, tried to oppose the new manager. The woman immediately fired him.
It may have been Victor’s last day of work as a caretaker. The next day, something incredibly important happened to him.
Angry at Nia, Mr. Gordon, the owner of the multi-million-dollar chain of stores, appointed Victor as the regional manager, to whom she now reported.
A new chapter begins in Victor, Nia, and the store’s life.
Victor started managing the store, while Nia became his right-hand person.
The collaboration between these two individuals ensured a prosperous future for the store throughout its history.
