    Actually, what it proves is that nice people always get shafted while the slime simply moves on to ruin something else. Do any of us really believe that those most responsible for the demise of this country will never get a similar job again? Or will the upper and middle management be seen as capable, quality individuals being value to retail?

    Look at all the losers that came over from Blockbuster to follow the same path of destruction. Did they learn anything from their failures to adapt to modern technology and communications or did they repeat the exact same attitudes and actions?

    The mantra of many retailers today is that the Internet is to blame for everything. Or the poor economy. And let's not forget the worthless sales associates who are paid good money yet produce nothing. Whip them harder, fire the worse ones every 6 months, cut hours and demand more results from the lazy slackers. I have yet to see either a management or socalled financial analysts deal with the real problem of so much business today and that is the sad fact that most of management are a bunch of sociopaths focused solely upon short term numbers and the hell with both their employees and customers.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • The Chase website has been offline now since last Thursday. Today makes the 5th day. Customers cannot pay their credit card bills nor even see recent charges. If this latest hack includes major theft and usage of credit cards there is going to be Hell to pay.

    What makes all of this so strange is that I have yet to see a single thing in the news. Nothing. Nor has Chase even gotten their own act together with some customer service reps claiming that there is no problem while others state that the system is down but repairs are almost finished. There are a number of websites where one can go to verify if a site is up or down and they are all filled with comments from upset customers. 5 days now and not a word as to what the problem is. Far too typical of a response from a huge corporation that rewards their top management with tens of millions while firing thousands of low level employees.
