How do the people supervising these idiots still have jobs? 350 missing iPhone 5's should have gotten some attention. HR not doing their job all the way around.

The three have been working there since January 2013? They sure didn't waste much time before embezzling from the company. This crime is so pathetic and simplistic, it leads me to believe that E-Verify might have caught it before it began. Either that or Ozburn-Hessey's human relations department should be place under investigation because these criminal activities appear to be more of a "family affair".
