Hey everyone,

Thanks for the well wishes! First off let me tell you this web site helped get Vortex Optics where they are today. Thanks for the help! As you may have read I am no longer with Vortex, this was not by my choice. I loved my job, and most of the people I worked with. I was told I was not a team player and let go. I Guess working every weekend, answering phone calls 24/7, and replying to e-mails as fast as I can, meant nothing. I was put in a bad place, my wife to be, has been in and out of the hospital off and on for the last 6 months and unable to work, this has drained the savings account. $333 on unemployment I don't think will cut it. I will never take anything away from Vortex or it's product, but let me tell you I would never treat any one the way they have recently treated me. There are 2 people there, who did not like me and did everything in there power to get me out. They won! Dan Hamilton and family were great to work for and I am sure they will do fine. I may strugle for a bit, but my guess would be I will be back working in the industry soon. As far as a team player, my 19 month old boy and wife to be make a great team. I gave to much to a company that did not appreciate it, it will be good to get off the road and be home for a while. Bow swason starts this Saturday, please keep in touch.

Nick I hope you get things worked out. I know sometimes things happen in the heat of the moment...try working with you brother for 19 years! You guys were too good of a team to let it go this easily. All parties need to cool off and get back together and talk it out. Just my lousy 2 cents but been there before. If you need anything you've got my number.

Nick, as I told you earlier, you were the one I wanted to deal with. You were always on the ball returning emails and phone calls. I think between the 2 of us, we got the big acct. here in Missoula. :wink:
I commend you for taking the upper road in this, and wish you and your wife to be the best in all you do. And as one has already said, when the Lord closes one door, another will open. Also, He never gives you something that you can not handle. :hug:
I wish you all the best and please, keep in touch. You have my numbers and email. If there is anything I can do, please don't hesitate to ask.

WOW, Nick!!! That was much more professional than the last time an "industry" employee posted after being fired. :eek:

Wish you all the best on whatever you choose to do in the future!!

Good luck Nick. Thanks for all your help. If you need anything, just call. We still need to get you down here for a trip to the woods. BTW - I saw the new bow and it looks great. Very quiet.

I have been dealing with Nick since before Vortex. I have always had a great time dealing with Nick. He was very polite and I felt he was a team player. He worked hard at his job, and always had the best of spirits. I am very sorry to hear this Nick. You will be working again very soon. I am sure of it. Keep in touch. I always look forward to hearing your hunting stories.

Nick, I hate to hear such a thing. Especially by one of our sponsor companies. I will be sending a pm shortly! I am saddened to hear that such a thing has happened and is happening.
keep your head high, things will turn around I know it!

Nick,

It's odd how our roads wind and turn. Sometimes we view something as a huge stumbling block, but in essence, it turns out to be the 90 degree turn that puts us right where we are meant to be. I wish you the best in wherever you go from here.

I never got the chance to meet you, but I did look forward to it. You were very courteous and professional anytime I spoke with you. I'm sure you'll land on your feet.....

Thank you for the opportunity you gave me,

Angie Gattis
