They present one type of culture, then internally disregard those core values.
Support from management
I did not receive support I needed to do my job.
The only positive working at that company were my coworkers, but they wouldn't allow time for teamwork. It was always go, go, go.
Freedom to work independently
They were all micro managers. Any mistakes and you were gone.
They would make changes and just expects people to be able to just know the change.
It was always the good old boys work ethic.
Attitude towards older colleagues
It was the good, old boys work ethic. So even though there were 45+ workers, they expected everybody else to do the work.
Promotions were about who you knew not what you were or what experience you brought to the table.
Overall compensation for your work
My compensation was at the lower end, but I was doing the work of three full time roles and I was not recognized with compensation or encourages at all.
Office / Work Environment
The corporate office was physically comfortable, but the 50+ warehouses were cold storage and they were unable to regulate the temperature in the offices (which should not be cold all the time).
I do not recall any recycling containers.
They expected me to work 50-60 hours per week and I have children.
I was always afraid of being let go for something out of my control.
The facilities have the minimum accessible resources required by law.
The workers at the warehouse did receive safety training.
I was expected to do my full-time job as well as the two employees who left and were never replaced.
Inclusive / Diverse
It was the good, old boys club. They were all white older men.
Suggestions for improvement
- Management needs to focus on its employees and stop just focusing on simply business transactions.
What I like about the company
I do not have any positive to say about any personal experiences.
What I dislike about the company
Management need to focus on its employees instead of always focusing on its business.
