Support from management
Non existent...employees opinions are not considered or asked for
They do not encourage any communication between employees. You are there to answer the phones and if you have a question, you must ask a Mgr not a co-worker.
Freedom to work independently
Yes and no...you are constantly micro managed
Extreme lack of departmental meetings. They are in small groups spread out over months and you are never in a meeting together with your co-workers. Unorganized
Attitude towards older colleagues
Lately hiring younger people below age of 30
No chance of advancement.
Overall compensation for your work
I felt underpaid for the amount of work I did on a daily basis. Worked 2 different areas but would not give me the appropriate titles to each area
Office / Work Environment
Freezing in winter roasting in summer
You are pressured to work overtime or late when someone calls in. No regard for family life or personal time.
In the last 8 years...no....since new president took over, employees are not valued and management doesn't appreciate their hard workers
No stability, too much favoritism towards those who have terrible absenteeism, tardiness, constant personal calls on a daily basis
None at all...Not even on the sidewalk
No training at all
You are not given a chance to get work done due to inadequate staffing
Inclusive / Diverse
Employee opinions are not valued at all
Suggestions for improvement
- They need to get with the times and support their employees, appreciate them, get rid if the rampant favoritism, get rid of management who gave no idea how to do another department's job, abuse by the handbook word for word and get rid of the employees who break those rules. Since the new president took over she has ruined the company by downsizing departments and terrible pay raises that don't reflect what you are truly worth
What I like about the company
The few friends I made
What I dislike about the company
They have no consideration for their employees and have rampant favoritism towards employees who consistently break the rules. To those who keep to the rules they treat badly.
