I was on a break and chumming it up with one of my managers at Fry’s. We were discussing ways that I could move up the ladder. I asked him how he was able to do it and his reply was that he knew all the ‘right’ people.
I thought he was pulling my leg but apparently he wasn’t when he continued to advise me on how I can get ahead. This basically consisted of a lot of brown-nosing. I guess the saying is true. It’s not what you know but who you know that counts, at least for this company.
