Rock Tops, Inc / An Employee point of view
" " I have a worked at Rock Tops for many years. My heart goes out to all of my friends which were co-workers (approx. 206 employees) out of work in a bad economy and out of 2 paychecks owed to them. My heart also goes out to all of the customers that were affected. I would like a chance to tell all of affected customers four things:
1. If you made a credit card payment please call youre credit card company and dispute the item(s).
2. All of the employees including the salesman were NOT aware this was going to happen.
3. On behalf of all the former Rock Tops employees..."We are so sorry this happened".
4. There are still great granite companies out there that can help you with your granite needs
I also hope that all of the suppliers that supplied Rock Tops are able to pull through this because I hate to see more people out of work.
As for the owners Robert Gasiorowski and Robert Theide. I do NOT believe this was intentional in anyway. I believe they made a mistake by trying to grow too large too fast in a bad economy. After December 19th I spoke to one of the owners and he stated to me that, "we thought we were going to be saved by an investor that pulled out at the very last second". Knowing and working with them for as long as I have I cant belive in my heart that this was intentional. We are all human and being human we make mistakes. My only wish was that so many were NOT affected by this mistake.
At last I want to say my prayers will be mainly with the employees and their familes, the customers that were affected and the suppliers that were financially hurt. But, my prayers will also go to the owners of Rock Tops because they have lost alot too. " "
