Suggestions for improvement

  • COUNTLESS TIMES ALL OF MY COWORKERS AS WELL AS MYSELF HAVE WITNESSED INCOMPETENT WORK ROLE OUT OF THE SHOPS WITH NO RECOURSE. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE FOR A COMPANY OF THIS SIZE AND PLACE IN OUR SOCIETY. SINCE THE EMPLOYEES HAVE HAD NO LUCK AT ALL, HOPEFULLY OSHA OR MOSHA OR THE EPA WILL STEP IN AND MAKE THEM AT LEAST FOLLOW THOSE TYPE ON GOVERNMENT POLICIES. CASE IN POINT: ALBAN'S ELKRIDGE FACILITY 6387 OLD WASHINGTON ROAD, ELKRIDGE MD 21036 HAS A DPF CLEANING MACHINE ALONG WITH A KILN (TRAP BURNER) AND VACUME SYSTEM TO COLLECT ANT BEBRIS OUT OF THE DPFS. THEY DO NOT TURN THAT WASTE IN AS A HAZMAT AS THEY SHOULD BUT SIMPLY THROW IT INTO THE TRASH FOR THE LANDFILL. SO INSTEAD ON THE PARTICULATE MATTER BEING EJECTED INTO THE ATMOSPHERE, IT GOES INTO OUR STREAMS AND WATERWAYS. THEY SURE ARE DOING THEIR PART TO HELP MAINTAIN OUR FRAGILE ECOSYSTEM. THIS IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE AND NEEDS TO BE STOPPED RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!

I like about the employer

NOT MUCH. IF MY DEPARTMENT IS DOING WELL THAN EVERYTHING IS GREAT. IF NOT THEN WE ARE CONSTANTLY SCOLDED LIKE A BUNCH OF RATS OR DISOBEDIENT DOGS. NO PRAISE EVER UNLESS THE "NUMBERS" ARE GREAT. IF THEY ARE NOT THEN WE ARE TREATED BAD AND EXPECTED TO DO MORE WORK WITH LESS MORALE. DOES NOT WORK OUT TOO WELL LIKE THIS. WON'T PURCHASE GOOD TOOLS (JACKS, ETC) UNTIL ONE FINALLY BREAKS AND ALMOST KILLS SOMEONE. BECAUSE IT IS NOT IN THIS MONTHS BUDGET. THAT IS THE WRONG WAY TO DO THE TYPE OF BUSINESS THAT WE DO. ALL OF OUR EQUIPMENT SHOULD BE PROFESSIONALLY INSPECTED AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR, BUT REALLY TWICE IS THE SAFE WAY. WHEN COMPANY PRODUCTS ARE USUALLY PURCHASED, THEY WILL SPEND THE EXTRA DOLLAR AND GET SOMETHING NICE AND ABOVE WHAT COULD BE CONSIDERED ORDINARY. IF REGULAR INSPECTIONS AND/OR MAINTENANCE IS NOT PERFORMED, THE "NICER" PRODUCTS BECOME MORE DANGEROUS TO OPERATE THAN A CHEAPER MODEL WOULD HAVE BEEN IN THE LONG RUN BECAUSE WE CANNOT AND ARE NOT PROPERLY TRAINED TO CHECK OVER AND INSPECT ANYTHING COMPLICATED. IF WE WERE AND MISSED SOMETHING BECAUSE OF IMPROPER TRAINING AND ANYONE IS HURT, SEVERAL EMPLOYEES WILL MOST DEFINITELY LOSE THEIR JOBS, OF COURSE NEVER ANYONE IN MANAGEMENT --- THEY CAN DO NO WRONG. INSTEAD WE GET GRILLED ABOUT WHY THAT EQUIPMENT PROBLEM WAS NEVER BROUGHT TO ANY MANAGEMENT'S NOTICE. THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERAL CASES WHERE ITEMS HAVE BEEN DOCUMENTED AS BEING UNSAFE AND IN NEED OF REPAIR BUT WE HAVE BEEN FORCED TO USE IT BECAUSE THAT IS ALL THAT WE HAVE RIGHT NOW. WE DO AND SAY A CHAIN SNAPS AND SUDDENLY IT BECOMES THE EMPLOYEES FAULT BECAUSE THEY DID NOT BRING THAT ITEM TO MANAGEMENT IN TIME AND NOW LOOK WHAT HAPPENED. WHICH IS SI OFTEN DOCUMENTED AND SIGNED OFF ON, BUT SOMEHOW, OVER NIGHT, ALL PERSONNEL AND EQUIPMENT LOGS HAVE BEEN MOVED TO THE HEAD QUARTERS AND NEVER SEEN AGAIN. SO NOW WE HAVE AN EMPLOYEE THAT CANNOT WORK ANY LONGER BECAUSE THEY LOST A LIMB BUT SINCE THEIR SHOP DOCUMENTS WERE NOT PROPERLY TAKEN CARE OF BECAUSE THE SHOP PERSONNEL WERE CARELESS WITH THEIR BOOK KEEPING, THE EMPLOYEE HAS NOTHING TO FALL BACK ON AND IN THE END LOSES THEIR JOB AND ALL BENEFITS ASSOCIATED WITH AND SOON LOOSES THEIR HOUSE, MARRIAGE, LIFE AS THEY KNEW IT, DIGNITY, AND SOON ENOUGH MORPHS FROM A VERY SUCCESSFUL CATERPILLAR TECHNICIAN TO A BUM ON THE STREET. i PERSONALLY KNOW SEVERAL PEOPLE THAT HAVE RETIRED FROM ALBAN ONLY TO HAVE THEIR RETIREMENT FOLDED MANY TIMES. TOO MUCH IS WEIGHED ON THOSE "NUMBERS" THAT THE INDIVIDUAL SHOPS ARE EXPECTED TO PRODUCE.
