Not everyone at Borders’ corporate headquarters on Phoenix Drive is waiting until the end of June to see if publishers will throw a lifeline to the bankrupt company. A former employee at the once-bustling headquarters (itself up for sale) says that a third of the remaining staff–200 workers–left between November and April. While some were laid off, he estimates that at least 100 fled to other jobs–he overheard a neighbor interview for two different positions from his Borders desk. The common sentiment, he says, was that “if you weren’t looking for another job, you were crazy.” Another refugee says the company is so short-staffed it recently called and asked him to come back (he refused).
