    No opinion of CEO


    They were an established company with the attitude of a huge corporation. We- our bankrupted company- was immediately taken in, trained, and entrusted with product. It felt like someone believed in us again. Was introduced to and worked with some of the best people ever.


    They had too many supervisors. There was also a separation of new management and older management. Salaries were realigned 2 weeks before Christmas; leftover vacation days were dropped at year-end, as opposed to being cashed in, as originally promised. Inventory wasn't being shipped to stores, and then employees with seniority were being fired.

    Advice to Management

    Don't fire your most knowledgable staff to save some money. Listen to what they have to say. Consider the whole picture before it gets to the point of bankruptcy.
