Local management was fair to good, but company has been extremely mismanaged at corporate level for the last 5 years.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Knoxville, TN

ProsDiscount on clothing (until quality was abandoned), decent benefits (although those are declining), wonderful co-workers, nice facility, reasonably ergonomically-correct work space

ConsProduct quality and level of customer service allowed has declined to an embarrassing level; it seems as if the current management (directors and above) are simply taking what they can before shutting the company down.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart making decisions to benefit the company and try to save it rather than doing whatever it takes to avoid responsibility while profiting from the company's continuing downfall. Stop adding to the top-heavy corporate structure while abusing the employees that work hard to try to restore customer loyalty under very difficult circumstances.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
