There was only silence in the conference room, no one spoke, and it seemed that even breathing had to be suppressed.
The group members looked at each other.
How could this newbie Xiao Shen speak more like a leader than a leader?
You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )
Ye Min had a dark face, he didn’t know how to refute Shen Zhen, he remained silent, and only that pair of eyes stared at Shen Zhen with unspeakable anger.
After a while, Ye Min finally said, “You say I’m nothing, but what are you? I’ve been in the company for more than three years, and I’ve contributed to the company. Can a newcomer like you compare?”
Shen Zhen sat calmly in his seat, his head tilted back: “Then tell me, what contributions have you made?”
Ye Min: “I have negotiated three endorsement collaborations!”
Shen Zhen: “Have you succeeded?”
Ye Min said irritably: “At least I went to negotiate. If there is no failure, how can there be success?”
Shen Zhen laughed.
“But the question is, did you negotiate a successful contract?” Shen Zhen asked.
“You only have failure, success is someone else’s.”
Ye Min finally couldn’t bear it anymore. He spent two years to build his seniority and stayed in the position of the group leader for more than a year. When he was a small office worker, the group leader above him was a very responsible and gentle person. So he had never suffered much hardship in the company, other than having spent a longer time waiting for his seniority to increase, everything could be considered smooth sailing.
“What do you know?!” Ye Min rolled up his sleeves, grabbed Shen Zhen’s collar with one hand, and pulled Shen Zhen by his collar closer to him. Ye Min’s breath sprayed on Shen Zhen’s face, and Shen Zhen’s originally expressionless face suddenly became dark and unpredictable.
Ye Min thought that this would scare Shen Zhen, and he pointed at the small office workers around them and said, “If they do a good job, I can let them have a good rating and they can get a year-end bonus of 50,000 yuan.”
“If you are honest and obedient, do your work well, then I will also let you have a good rating at the end of next year.” Ye Min seemed to regain his confidence, “Understand?”
Shen Zhen took out a napkin from the tissue box on the table and wiped his face, but still felt unbearable. He suddenly stood up, startling everyone, even Ye Min who was grabbing his collar, let go of his hand and took a step back. He probably thought that Shen Zhen was going to hit him.
“I’m going to the bathroom.” Shen Zhen stood at the door and said to the group members and Ye Min, “We’ll continue when I get back.”
After speaking, Shen Zhen walked out without looking back.
The rest of the people in the room looked at each other, but no one spoke.
The group members felt that Shen Zhen was right, but no one dared to speak out.
As soon as these people entered the company, they were assigned to Ye Min. When they first came, they also did chores. Ye Min didn’t spend much time and energy in leading them. When Ye Min was thirsty, they poured water for him and when Ye Min was hungry, they went to get food for him.
After a long time like this, they were trained successfully by Ye Min, and even if they had work later, when Ye Min needed something, they would do it like a conditioned reflex, and they didn’t even think there was anything wrong with this situation.
But now hearing Shen Zhen say this, they felt that Shen Zhen was right.
They came to work for the Qin Group, not for Ye Min, nor did Ye Min pay them wages.
The bosses of the Qin Group didn’t need them to wait on them hand and foot, so what kind of onion was Ye Min?
But even though that was said, a higher level official can crush you to death, and even if they felt uncomfortable, they didn’t dare to say it at the moment.
The several group members didn’t dare to speak, so they took their mobile phones and spoke in a group chat set up with only the few of them.
“I think what Shen Zhen said is quite right. In addition to having work every day, we have to take care of Ye Min as well. He also moves frequently, uses my car, and doesn’t even invite me to a meal.”
“He also borrowed my car. He doesn’t buy one himself and when he borrows other people’s cars, he borrows for several weeks. The last time he borrowed my car for two months, and I also had to pay for the gas.”
“Damn, I thought I was the only one whose car was borrowed by him.”
“But the year-end bonus…..only if he handed in the name list will we be able to get it.”
“Actually, I didn’t tell you guys this but after winning the year-end bonus last year, he invited me to have a barbecue during the New Year, and I gave him a red envelope of 200,000 yuan.”
“F**k, a total of 500,000 yuan, and you paid him 200,000 yuan. Isn’t this robbery?”
“I didn’t even dare to tell you guys.”
“Then, should we go and react with the supervisor?”
“Forget it, it’s not like you don’t know the relationship between the supervisor and him. He is very good at currying favor with the supervisor. The last time the supervisor was going on a business trip, he threw me the work he was doing while he went off to take care of the hotel reservations and travel tickets. Even if we complain, the supervisor will protect him, and then we will have bad luck.”
“What are you guys doing!” Ye Min kicked the chair Shen Zhen was sitting on in irritation.
The group members quickly put their phones away.
“We were just wondering if we could react to the supervisor and let him transfer Shen Zhen to another work group.”
“Yes, yes, it affects the unity of our work group. Besides, Brother Ye, you are so busy, it’s not like you can bother with him every day.”
Only then was Ye Min in a better mood, and said, “Don’t learn from him, people like him can’t do long in the company, and you all know how difficult it is to join the Qin Group. Now when companies recruit new people, the worst education is at least first tier universities, and Xiao Zhang and Xiao Chen graduated from second tier universities, right?”
Xiao Zhang and Xiao Chen lowered their heads.
Ye Min loved to talk about academic qualifications, as he himself graduated from a first tier university.
In the group, except for the two second tier university graduates, Xiao Zhang and Xiao Chen, the others graduated from first tier universities, and there were even two among them who were postgraduate students.
He would always mention Xiao Zhang and the others’ degrees, but when he went out, he would say in front of others, “What’s the use of studying well, don’t postgraduate students still have to work under me?”
“You all know what the Qin Group’s status is in the country. Branch companies have spread all over the country in various provincial capitals, as well as in small and medium-sized cities. Every day, there are too many people who want to squeeze into the head office.” Ye Min used a lecturing tone to brainwash them, “You have to cherish this job.”
“Last year’s ranking of the world’s richest people, the Qin family ranked third globally, and ranked first in Asia.” Ye Min looked proud, as if he had made this achievement, “Our CEO Qin founded his first company at sixteen years old. He was not yet a legal adult at the time, and so the company was registered under his mother’s name. People say that CEO Qin is called CEO Qin because of the Qin Group, but this is inaccurate.”
Ye Min was quite clear about the company’s history: “Before the founding of the country, the Qin family was engaged in heavy industry and mechanized production. CEO Qin came out to work and build his own wealth from scratch. When the Qin family went downhill, it was Mr. Qin who stood forward and turned the tide. Therefore, you guys are still young, as long as you work hard, maybe the next CEO Qin will be you?”
The several group members smiled on the surface but cursed him out in their hearts.
This pie was too big for them to eat.
When Shen Zhen came back, what he saw was this group of people sitting on separate sides. The group members were sitting on one side, and Ye Min was sitting on the other side with his arms crossed, the line distinct. Shen Zhen was really not in the mood to continue to waste time with them as even if he wasted his time here there would be no extra gains.
“I think this meeting can be dismissed.” Shen Zhen leaned against the door frame and said, “You guys can go back first, and I will have a few words with Ye Min alone.”
The group members looked at each other, of course they wanted to go home, but if Ye Min didn’t speak, no one dared to leave.
Shen Zhen: “Go.”
Finally someone dared to speak: “I have to go home to see my dog, I’ll go first.”
Holding his bag, he didn’t dare to look at Ye Min, and went straight out.
“My girlfriend just texted me to urge me. Today is the first anniversary of our relationship, so I’m leaving first.”
The people left one after another.
Ye Min was originally sure that no one would dare to leave, but at this moment, he felt that his face hurt, so he did not attempt to stop them.
“What do you want to say?” Ye Min looked at Shen Zhen coldly, “Don’t think that if you say a few good words, I can pretend that these things never happened, I will go to the supervisor tomorrow and let you go to another group, I am unable to deal with you, but there will always be someone who can.”
Shen Zhen sat opposite Ye Min, he smiled slightly, with indifference, distance, and contempt: “Ye Min, I let them go first, not to make peace with you, but to save you a little face.”
“I need a group member to lead me.”
“I also need a normal work environment.”
“You don’t have a broken arm or a broken leg. Do what you need to do by yourself.”
“You need to separate personal life from work.”
Ye Min: “Heh, I need you to teach me?”
Shen Zhen glanced at the time: “That’s all I have to say, it’s up to you whether you listen or not, as long as you feel that you can accept the consequences of not listening.”
Ye Min snorted coldly, grabbed his bag and walked out.
Before leaving, he also cursed: “What a little sh*t, a mere worker, really thinks he is the king of heaven, the consequences? I want you to know the consequences.”
Looks like it was time to have a chat with the supervisor tonight.
After Ye Min left, Shen Zhen called Yang Changsheng.
“The day after tomorrow at nine o’clock.” Shen Zhen said, “see you then.”
Yang Changsheng asked cautiously on the other line, “Did something happen?”
Shen Zhen smiled: “It’s nothing, I just felt that the sparrows by the window are a little noisy.”
Were there sparrows in winter? Yang Changsheng agreed in a daze.
Shen Zhen mooched off Qin Xing’s car home tonight. Qin Xing’s schedule was a mystery. He spent three months a year dealing with company affairs, and his subordinates took care of everything the rest of the year. He only needed to look at the reports while spending his other time flying back and forth from home and abroad. He managed a huge corporation, but he did not appear to be very busy.
Because of him, all the Qin family could still live a noble’s life.
Shen Zhen had only been in the company for two days, but he already felt that Qin Xing was the most capable person he had ever seen. In the past, Qin Xing in Shen Zhen’s heart was a symbol, representing power and money, but now, Shen Zhen even felt that Qin Xing was a bit deified in his eyes now. He almost felt that Qin Xing was omnipotent in his field.
The driver parked the car downstairs in the company building, and Shen Zhen got in the car. He was now much more comfortable in front of Qin Xing.
Sometimes Shen Zhen felt that Qin Xing would not be angry no matter what he did.
He was like an ascetic Buddha.
Shen Zhen looked at Qin Xing’s profile and felt that his throat was a little dry.
You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )
So that when the car was parked downstairs in his residence, he said to Qin Xing uncontrollably, “Uncle Qin, do you want to go up and sit for a while?”
Qin Xing seemed to feel a little novel about Shen Zhen’s invitation, he smiled and nodded: “Okay.”
Qin Xing was like a cheetah, he guided his prey with ease to slowly walk towards the arranged trap.
