Could be a rewarding job if upper management didn't change every year and a half.

Retail Sales (Current Employee)
Grapevine, TX

ProsUnique products and decent benefits.

ConsNo real intrest in allowing for employees to move up the corporate ladder. I saw many very loyal and talented employees burned out or get fired.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave some respect for your employees, your turnover rate speaks for itself. Stick with a plan for more than a year.

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