Oriental Trading CEO an 'Undercover Boss


http://www.omaha.com/article/20120216/M ... cover-boss

Oriental Trading Co. CEO Sam Taylor let go of his clean-cut appearance, growing his hair, a mustache and beard. The 50-year-old Omaha resident traded in his button-up dress shirts and slacks for T-shirts, khaki shorts and tennis shoes.


The episode featuring Taylor and the Omaha-based direct retailer of party supplies, arts and crafts, toys and novelties will air March 9 on CBS.

That's a decent show.  I will tune in to check it out.

The Hooters Episode what the best.  There was a manager that made waitresses eat baked beans without using their hands before they could go home...  The manager thought there was nothing wrong with it either.

Only problem I see there is actually eating at Hooters.
Stable genius.

I don't really watch Undercover Boss since I think the show is mostly phony, but the OTC episode might be worth checking out.

How the heck can you have the camera crew around a "new guy" and not have it be suspicious.

Usually those shows say they are filming for another documentary or reality show.

Looking good on tv so far.  They have shown numerous shots of downtown and the pedestrian bridge.  The CEO was also shown driving down Dodge St.

Watching it on DVR.  Great shots of Omaha.

Doesn't seem like a good place to work...

I don't watch it very much, but I did see that episode. I was surprised that even a tool like that wasn't smart enough to tone it down when surrounded by cameras.

Unless the show was scripted.

Are you trying to ruin reality TV for me?  I was already let down when I found out professional wrestling wasn't real!
