Has ability to succeed due to lack of competition for custom treatments.

Company hires personnel with no knowledge of industry, particularly store managers. HR and corporate powers that be also do not listen to employees about issues within the stores. They do not care at all about what goes on in stores and only cares about not having to make changes as that will be too much work. Sales are all that matters and profit is basically not looked at. Training is not even an issue with employees except with store managers and then everything is overlooked particularly when after 1 and 2 years they still do not know basics of the industry, not to mention how to follow Calico's guidelines in transactions as well as how to be a good manager. When and if a promotion comes, store managers are allowed to promote whomever they wish to, in spite of the employee's total lack of ability to perform the job. They do not care how many great people they lose due to these inept managers.
When told what untruths managers have told employees that caused them to leave, they will do nothing to change how managers treat people. It is pathetic. If an employee or manager cannot learn their job in 1 years time, why would they be thrilled to keep them on staff. Particularly when the store/company sales are completely declining?
Once they realize that the people that have been there and know the company and industry are more valuable than the managers that they put in charge of these people and listen to them and realize that they are the ones that care about Calico, they will be so far ahead of restoring this company to its true potential
Great potential to be an industry leader
Terrible communication, total lack of supporting the store employees as far as listening to their issues.
