* Shirk on recruiting: "We hire students from our local high schools and colleges, offering them flexible work hours as well as fair and competitive wages. We established a summer seasonal hiring program to enrich one or two students ages 16 or 17."
* Shirk on showing employees that they are valued: "We hold a monthly employee appreciation day. During this event, we recognize birthdays, anniversaries and employees who have gone above and beyond to help a customer or their fellow employees. We also pass out gift cards to select employees as a sign of our appreciation and recognition of their good work."
