Guerrilla Air Closed the Chicago office

Guerrill Air Closed and FIRED Debbie, Mary, and Larry today at the Chicago office. Armed guards and some tool from Cali fired them in the parking lot, and then they were kept out of the building by the armed guards. Then all contents were removed to a remote location quickly. This staff was known for there customer srevice and they were the back bone to Guerrilla Air, this should be intresting to see how they roll now. .... (FUSI)

Looks like they just lost about $80.00 worth of sales in their new tank bags, aka all of them

Hoping the staff can find new work quickly

This appears to be accurate, Dan has the same thing on Facebook wall.

Hopefully everything works out for everyone at the Chicago office.

Dan and Larry both have helped me sort out issues on multiple occassions. I hate to see the way things are going. Hopefully these losses don't tank GA's customer support. Best of luck to all parties involved.

If that is the real Dan Colby then you're all idiots for saying "lol September 2011 join date 1 post" etc. Do some research on who that is first, smart guys http://www.mcarterbrown.com/forums/d...dan-colby.html

Was a big ****storm regarding his firing under similar circumstances back...in the Spring I think it was.

If it's not the real Dan then yes it's just a troll.

Its unfortunate that people vital to the company got fired, (if this is true) however its often common practice to be escorted out of the building right away and not allowed back in. (due to intellectual property concerns) I would be worried about being terminated without notice without option to relocate, as that can be illegal in certain circumstances.

However posting about it in a public forum is not the best idea.

Ya but if this guy is giving away tanks to people that break their stuff, that is theft. No matter how much the customer likes it.

Negative sir. thats customer service, and factory warratny. a pissed off customer is not a returning one, you help em out once (e.g. give em a free replacement or fix there stuff) they will come back, make up some bs about how its not under warranty or what ev, and you lose that customer, although it might mean u just lost money, u get it back in teh future. ninja has sent replacement parts all the time when i had an issue and i love em for that. and guess what no charge. now if he did it for everyone and every occaison then maybe, however servicing tanks and replacing them is part of customer service. it is too hard to prove user error or defect by factory so to actually earn the customer back, u help them out once or twice, then start to explain the rules.

WTF I guess they figured the core of the company was too much of a liability. @Dan you know I'm always down to ride with the real Guerilla (Air America). Mary and Larry were the only reason i still did business with guerilla after they fired Dan. Looks like i'll be switching to ninja

Apparently some **** has been goin down internally in the company for some time. Debbie said on numerous occasions that some things were happening but couldnt talk about it, and she sounded worried

From what I can glean from all of this, this is the second time the higher ups at Guerrilla Air have decided to "raid" their own offices and fire the people that have made their company work.

First, they escorted Dan Colby out of his own office and now they do the same to Larry, Debbie and Mary!!!!!

For those of you who aren't aware of who these people are: Danny is the genius behind every design, Larry is the guy who has helped create the products, Debbie and Mary are the customer service voices you hear when you call Guerrilla Air (and have been for many years).

The irony of all this is it seems Guerrilla Air is doing everything they can to send their business to Ninja!!!!! It seems to me that all Ninja has to do is sit back, smile and answer the phone to greet new customers.

I don't even think Todd is with them anymore. Oh well I always hated that ping sound the tanks made.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
