Beware applicants--you have to be "perfect" or you will be dismissed at 45 days so you can not collect unemployment against them. The company has SOME good qualities but fairness isn't one of them.

BEWARE--this company is not what it appears!! Its short on truth and fairnest. And don't expect to make much money--wages are low-employee turn over is VERY high

This company is a joke. Even those who are very qualified to work a certain position won't get a call back. Even those who have proven themselves to the company before won't get a callback after application is filled out and online testing is completed. Human Resource department manager is a joke.

Listen, I know 1st hand that the owner of this company is not greedy and is not an S.O.B. It is not him that makes the hiring/dismissing choices. The company has a king, and his title is "King Nothing". "King Nothing" is the one who makes all the decisions, not the owner!!! If only the owner would listen to employees that have had experiences with "King Nothing". I think the turnover rate would be less!!! Just my 2 cents...about all I have left at this point!!!

What kind of owner of a business doesn't have a hand in his business and how could he not make any of his own business decisions? You sound like a complete dipshit if you think the owner doesnt know anything or have a hand in it!

LOL...just the name of this company even sounds stupid! It inspired me to make this username when I saw this story. Do they really think that if American Greetings could'nt afford that enormous building, that some no name, or dumb named, company from Barbourville can make it?? LOL...I see foreclosure before they even get their feet wet. And I too have heard horror stories about how they aggressively hire some people, then let them go before 45 days so they can save on unemployment or whatever their purpose is. I heard their General Manager is a real arrogant prick know-it-all. Is that who is being referred to as "King Nothing"? Cute nickname!

Ahh,yes...I see that you found humor in the name of this company. From what I understand the name of the company resembles the General Manager("King Nothing"). I have heard the General Manager makes it very difficult for anyone to work at this place. "King Nothing" has his nose in everything, including the bosses back end!!! And it appears that he also wears the owners balls on his chin...amazing!!! I feel very sorry for anyone that's involved in any way with "King Nothing" as he is a pathetic idiot!!!

This company claims to care about its employees yet the building has no heat and the pay sucks. Management is a real joke, its like a bunch of kids from school that gossip and whisper because they don't have the balls to admitt to there own mistakes.....

More companies than you could imagine have owners that do not participate in management decisions.

I am an employee at Troll and Toad and after reading all the posts I just had to comment. As for the owner, he is an awesome person. I have known the company for many years and I have to say that the owner has allways been good to me and my family. He helped me out in a big way while I was away from the company and I am not the only one he has helped. As for the current situation, the owner does of an idea of what is going on but he is not fully aware. Before the company moved to Barbourville every one of the employees had opportunity to speak with him, now you have to go through members of upper management to get a meeting with him and they see to it that does not happen. I have begged for a meeting with him and have been stepped on by members of upper management everytime. I hope that the owner reads this story. He really does need to take back control of this company. I do know that this is not his only company and he is a very busy man, but his employees need him to take the reigns so to speak. This is a good company to work for. I love my job and most of the people I work with. I am also sure that things will get better soon.

you should possibly look into the sales of the company before you decide it is a no name

For the person that said we would forclose on the building even before we got our feet wet. BAM-We bought it. For the people whom complain there is no heat or air. BAM-Atleast the sun or snow isn't falling directly on you.

As a respective employee for more than 4 years, this job has been a blessing. I've gained more knowledge and experience about sales and growth than I would if I had been working in any of my previous jobs.

Everyone has an opinion about this place, normally if you have been fired - You goofed off and ran your mouth when you should have been working.

If you don't like management, then you aren't the only person, you probably don't take the time to talk to them like normal people instead of spilling your lifes story or complaining about something. People don't want to hear complaints or excessive stories about "What I did 10 years ago".

All in all, it's a great place to work, IF you are willing to do the work. Don't be lazy, don't gossip and whisper. Keep to yourself as far as the gossip goes and keep your head down.

Thanks :)

You are either one of the managers or sleeping with one of them. The truth hurts, it is what it is, and every comment on here is true. The only people who have a good employment with Troll and Toad are the managers (who are mostly men) and the people who sleep with them.

Don't know anything about their workplace or their owner but I've ordered stuff from them before and was entirely happy with the whole thing. No complaints here from the customer end.

If you don't know what it is, they sell trading cards, board games, etc.

You are so funny. The lady in the office, her mom is in her 70's and does not work. If you knew what you were talking about you would know that. Sounds like you are one of the druggies that have been fired.
