Support from management

My manager is not very responsonsive

Freedom to work independently

Evey day you work it's independently

Career Development

This is not a career position

Challenging Work

Very easy

Suggestions for improvement

  • I think passive aggressive management needs to be looked into. We are unable to be sick or request days off without getting punished by not having any shifts scheduled for weeks after.

What I like about the company

I really truly like the job we do.
