Re: West Marine makes enemies

I remember back a few years when hanging out on SN a member here was in management at WM. He was knowledgable and a good contributer here. He was always defending WM's business practices here.

I don't remember the exact details but he got demoted or fired because his employees were not pushing high end GPS's or some other electronics as dictated by the company. With poor treatment of the employees it has to be hard to get people who either care or know their stuff, which is often evident when asking for help.
