Suggestions for improvement
- I would increase hourly wages for those on hourly pay. Allow team members to have caffeine drinks like coffee, colas, or juices in the work area to help ensure peak performance. Offer a regular cafeteria for lunch breaks not just dull vending machines. Make caring for team and client/customers top priority. Instill the motto "Caring for all is Safety" Implement mandatory policy on cross training all team members in every job function of their work area, from supervisor to clean up. Understanding each other's position and duties promotes effective team work allowing maximum performance in every detail in every dept. Create "Family personal days off with pay" along with the personal days and sick days. Allowing team members to earn 2 days in each account per month with ability to rollover family personal and sick days enabling team to accumulate these days while employed with company.
What I like about the company
Caring about employees personal lives. Try to do all they can to help and assist in anyway their allowed to. Most supervisors deem their teams as family and do their best to treat them as such. Safety is #1 concern, customer trust is always #2. The company will try to work with employee to make working there a positive experience. However pay can be an issue, benefits are good. Pay can be effected by slow periods where they offer vto which is volunteer time off, does not affect your personal days but you get no pay. The pay per hour is not enough in most cases to support a family. However, it is a unique company in the fact they will help you do your best to try to find the career you want even if it's not with them. I would suggest working there , it is a very fast paced job and lots of details have to be carefully observed. There are quotas every hour that must be met in certain positions. Quota not met may lead to termination. Quotas are changed to ensure that all is being done to reach max progress. To ensure teams are moving continually and fast with accuracy. Allowing little time to adjust for any errors that may occur. Being a positive can do person, with ability to work long hours at max performance with 2,15min. breaks which seldom allow team to get to break room. Yet, it is possible to work fast and effective without error with no breaks. Tedious work with little enjoyment, silence of inner company structure and operations is required even in your personal life. Your online conversations in social media are monitored and any negative comments are punished.
What I dislike about the company
The diligent monitoring of people's personal online social comments. I find to be an infringement of 1st amendment rights. However, there is little one can do about this as the company has deep pockets and is very political.
