Have a tendency to short customers their products and dispute the discrepancy even when they are at fault. Return books to vendors that are completely destroyed.
Support from management
None!!! If I presented a problem with 3 resolutions to accommodate I was always disciplined by the manager for lack of communication skills.
The only team work was conducted by each departments crew because they didn't want to be fired other than that 0 team work.
Freedom to work independently
Was always told to take initiative and do things on your own but then was micro managed and disciplined for doing so even though I had 100% accuracy.
Nobody that I can remember ever took charge of the internal problems and instead pointed fingers it was like that for the whole year. Ppl lied to cover their mistakes.
Men all paid way less not one woman in the office was unattractive and got paid ridiculously while men did all the work and threatened pay dock
Attitude towards older colleagues
Everyone was always friendly with colleagues
Nothing about this job advanced my career development
Overall compensation for your work
Can't be less impressed
Office / Work Environment
Finger pointing no team work pretty much work as two dif companies
Lots of recycling.
Shifts stay 8-5 for the most part not really a problem at all also was given time to leave when needed.
Has been getting a rep for being sub par
Plenty of space
By far the most dangerous work environment I've ever been in. Nothing bolted down. Faulty equipment. Under age kids working half blind man inspections were never done massive amounts of OSHA violations
Tedious, tiring, mentally and physically, constant chaos
Inclusive / Diverse
All white some Hispanic nothing else.
Suggestions for improvement
- OSHA safety, no more kids, proper vision, proper managing, customer service, management and human resources training, better pay or less chaos and an appreciation for employees, better treatment, no more threats, accountability, integrity, honesty, much much more
