  1. Cracking company to work for, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Karen while at head office, she’s a lovely lady, salt of the earth. Onwards and upwards for card factory

  2. I have been working for quarter of a century now and I am yet to come across any HR personnel who are useful for an organisation. Let’s hope she does something better.
    Ever since Karen Hubbard has taken the reigns at Card Factory the shareholders have lost 75%, can’t understand how she is able to hold her position.

  3. I hope they start and turn the business around !! As a substantial share holder I’m £000’s down at the moment … Hopefully the worst is behind them …
