Passive Aggressive work environment, Poor domain knowledge

If you're considering interviewing for One Kings Lane, or have an offer letter, think very hard before accepting and coming to work here. My advice? STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!
If you're hoping to meet a really great boss, an industry leader, someone to look up to, someone who can mentor you, someone you can have fun talking to, and someone who will inspire the team... You will find no such person at One Kings Lane. If you're looking for a company who you can grow with, get promoted at, grow your own career, One Kings Lane is not the company for this path either. This company has been on a free fall for years and years, and the leadership team refuse to objectively look at the problems at the core of their business. Until Bed Bath & Beyond, OKL's parent company (as of 7/2016), changes the OKL leadership team, the business will continue to be a terrible place to work, the business will continue to shrivel up, and the people talent it attracts will keep getting worse.
Free lunches are gone. Bagel Fridays are gone. Free home goods items are no longer free.
Leadership team: dislike each other, don't care about employees, do not know how to run a profitable business, do not have a plan
