Close, mostly friendly call center community despite not-so-small size.
Mid-high turnover in management, so lower level employees are usually more helpful than those paid to help new hires. Had recently moved to a "point" system for time off. Max 2 points allowed, 1 point acquired per scheduled shift missed for ANY reason. I was let go after a diabetic coma caused me to miss too much time. Obviously, I had little interaction with upper management, but it seems that nepotism is the only motivator for them to care about certain employees.
Advice to Management
From what I've heard, your company has been a great place to work in the past, when everybody was treated like part of "the family." I'm aware of the company's somewhat recent growth, but don't forget that even your new hires are people, too.

I applied online. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Jewelry Television (Knoxville, TN) in September 2014.
Followed a link from Craigslist.com to www.Jewelrytv.com/careers. Answered a few questions, uploaded my resume and then came across a new application procedure for the first time in 20+ years of applying for jobs. JTV required a recorded voice response to several questions over the phone. While I'm not sure whether the hiring managers actually listen to these recordings after overhearing peers within my training class, it's a useful tool if used properly. I am doubtful that hiring managers actually listen to applicants' responses due to the fact that I was contacted via email within minutes of concluding the voice response and online applications. I received a personal call from the person (whom was the same I actually met in person for an interview) within minutes of concluding my application and was offered an interview. I arrived and sat in a very small lobby and waited only minutes before I was greeted warmly and asked to follow her into an empty conference room. The hiring manager verbally skimmed through responses to my online application and had my resume printed out in front of her. At that point though, she picked up on the briefest of employment tenure due to her personal family involvement. She agreed that I possessed the skills necessary to benefit both myself and the company. I was then offered a job on the spot. To some that may be the best outcome, but I was skeptical as I've never been offered an on the spot offer. Due to the economy, I accepted and then I was required to fill out a plethora of forms. In addition, I was required to immediately provide my availability (specific shift, days, and times) and then mandated to submit to an offsite, drug test that would expire within a five hour window. While I am drug free, it all felt quite rushed.
