Operations Manager Frank Vanderpool on showing employees that they are valued: "We treat employees to lunch or drinks and dinner after work or offer concert tickets, sports tickets or amusement park tickets as a thank you for hard work.
"In addition, we have assistant sales manager programs in each of our stores that allow our sales consultants promotion opportunities. All of our current sales managers were former sales consultants who were promoted through the program."
