The newspaper article said that you were going to start up in May of this year, but there is no sign that you are doing anything in the building. Are you still planning to start a business here or not. I know people who really wanted to go to work for you. Thank you, Jackie Miller

I applied at the Work Force Agency in August and so far have not heard one response as to whether or not I will even be interviewed. Each time I inquire, I get some sort of answer ie we are busy. We are on vacation, out of town etc. What is this all about anyway.

for your information about apogee,they are not as great as everyone says.they make you wait and ask to go to the restroom,like you had too when you were in grade-school.the cussing that the head person uses is bad,get back on the f--king phones.and throws temper tantrums when things dont go as they should..if anything you do is against the rules,they make everyone suffer for it.they treat you like a little kid.and if you dont go along with the program,you get fired.

you have to hold your hand up,and then its like begging to get to go to the restroom.some of the people are disabled,or have conditions that cause them to have to go at odd times.but they want you to wait till they let you go..just like in grade school.gotta hold it till they give you permission.hold your hand up,some times they tell you to wait for your brake,even if its 20min.s..i thought that they freed all the slaves when lincoln was president..but not at apogee retail.

that place is worse then being in jail,at least there they dont chain you to the work,and make you keep at it,even when you gotta go to the john..there is double standards,if your a favorate one you get away with doing what you want.and nobody says nothing to you..the supervisiors are two faced,and play favorites.i know how fyi feels..i watched it go on for weeks..there is only one or two supervisiors who gave a crap about what was going on in that place.other wise they sit at their little desk feeding their faces,and reading books,or getting their favorites a soda,or just doing what they want,when they want..as for the upper management,they screw up the dailers,and then blame the people who are working on the floor. you cant treat people like dogs and expect good work from them.whats good for one ,should be good for them all..

If you spent more time doing your work and less time sitting on the pot than you wouldn't have to worry about it. If you act like a child--- you get treated like one.

you must be a disgruntled person in general with nothing to do but worry about others. it's obvious that you have no idea what you're talking about.

Too bad you didn't give her a chance. Former Senator Robak would have been an honor to work for your company. She is a very respected individual in our community

She may be a respected individual in the community, but so was Bill Homan, regardless, there were several witnesses who had the unfortunate luck to witness her respectability. She walked in and demanded a interview and when she was told she would have to wait for a later date she literally threw a tantrum and accused the management on not being able to multitask. Definitely hiring material, I wouldn't let her walk my dog.

Does anyone else get the feeling this may just be a big fat scam? If you research the "company" they ask for donations for these certian "charities". This is only one way of stating it. What they actually do is the charities bid on the donations and Apogee retail in turn pledges and gives them a check at the beginning of the month. Then they sell the donations in their thrift stores. Only a certain percentage goes to charities and the rest goes right into the pockets of the company. Its no different then big companies that give donations to charities. Which is comendable, I just personally think its WRONG to lead people to believe their donation is going wholly to aid charity. That is not the truth. This is a FOR profit company. It is not NON-PROFIT. Any one that has any literature on this feel free to email me at peacefulus@gmail.com.

Apogee should not be allowed to use the word Charity they are asking for free clothing to sell for a profit. Just as tellamarkets try to sell a product for profit - either way they are selling mechandise for a profit. This would put them under the donotcall.gov law.

But don't they have clients on the list who are supposed to be called? I didn't think any of the calls they made were to non service subscribers. I always assumed the charity part, is the people who are donating these clothes.
