Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz has an interview in Esquire’s women’s issue. In it, she drops a few revealing one-liners:

  • “We’ll go through the whole interview, and I’ll say, “I have one last question. I don’t work with arseholes. Are you one?”
  • “I always do my firing in the morning because that’s when I’m fresh. I mean, why sit there all day thinking: I’m going to fire Joe at 4:59?”
  • “I hug employees all the time. I’m a huge contact person. Touch is an extremely important part of the human condition.”
