    Sold us scratched glasses in Tyson mall

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsVery easy to buy from them. They have good variety of glasses and brands which are sold in ZIP-LOCKS rather than boxes

    ConsThe sale person was so rude, she was angry and kept yelling, she sold us scratched glasses that we haven't used. I was in situation as I am the guilty one not a customer not satisfied with the glasses

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have to hire good people not trash unless you kniw sell trash goods and you need ANYBODY to sell them

    Worked from 2010-2014 Company is changing for the worst

    Store Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsDiscount was good, but probably take that away soon.

    ConsUpper management is known to threaten numerous managers jobs on a daily basis. There is no trust within the upper to lower management, and recently it's getting worse for everyone. As a Store Manager there was no support from your District, and Regional Manager, and if you like to give your opinion.....no no no if you speak up than you'll get fired! To be honest this was such a great company when I first started, but the company literally fired every single manager that was there for over 5 years for no reason, and without sympathy or a blink of an eye....that tells you a lot about how much they care about there employees.

    They don't care about employees, not even a little! Told me just 4 days before closing my store.

    Store Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsThe discount employees get off sunglasses.

    ConsEverything, but the discount. I would NEVER work there again!

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a good look at yourself, and ask yourself, would I want to be treated like I don't matter? Taking Care of Your Employees is Essential. Poor leadership practices or challenging workplace cultures will be pushing good employees out the door! Your best and most productive employees will invariably feel well cared for – respected, rewarded and secure.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Would never work here again

    Keyholder (Former Employee)

    ProsA) Discount was good.
    B) My store manager was awesome and gave off the time we needed.
    C) Always had fun while at work.

    ConsAs far as my store goes I can't really say there were any cons of working there but the corporate people were very distant about anything that u ever asked them. If the store doesn't make enough money in the year they will close on you without any warning. I was recruited by them and went through 2 weeks of crap for my interviews and getting employee numbers just to be shut down in my 30th day of working and no compensation afterwords. Yesterday was payday and here I am still no check. That's real professional and then when I call to ask where my check is they just give me the runaround that it should be there soon. I dont think they understand that other people have bills to pay too.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhy don't you tell people that your planning to shut stores down so you don't just conpletely screw them. Come to find out when I talked to the mall manager he said they have been planning this since last year.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
