Why stay till the end? Because it is called seeing your job through. Just because the company is shutting down why would you leave your fellow employees short of help? Seems pretty petty. It is true it looks like I am not going to receive my severance but I did receive my retention bonus. Which was worth way more anyways. Every single employee in our store worked until the end. We took pride in our store and made sure up to the very end we maintained our store standards. I was there 2 weeks after the store closed to finish up misc.stuff. Was pretty depressing at the end but I made a commitment and saw it through. Maybe as the court case moves forward the court will again authorize our severance, maybe not. As for Cobra with no company there will be no group plan thus no Cobra.
A good reply to those who abandoned ship before the end or even considered it. Posted originally by @Ym10u5b-brrm .
