Company Culture

The management of this branch has been in place since it was founded in the 80's so it seems logical that the company knows of the apathetic manner local managemnet performs it's task and accepts it as ok and acceptable.

Support from management

upper management has no interest in employees unless someone forces them to take an interest, and that normally means a complaint or failure of some sort as they would ignore any positive ffedback they got from customers as that did not require them to address employees

Teamwork

if management has no interest in working with employees employees tend to do what they want unless there is negative feedback from a customer.

Freedom to work independently

If employees know the only criteria is to get the job done without any real supervision they tend to put things off or not do them at all and expect other employees to pick up the slack.

Internal Communication

No, the only way employees are provided with information is if someone fails to accomplish a task because they do not have the information and a customer complains.

Gender Equality

No women work at the dallas branch. I do not believe they are even interviewed.

Attitude towards older colleagues

If you are willing to stay and not say anything you have a job for life.

Career Development

There are none. They will raise the amount of work you do but no raise in pay or benefits come with the increase. They only give 1-2% yearly raise.

Overall compensation for your work

Benefits are paid for by the employee only and my medical insurance alone took one days pay a week to cover.

Office / Work Environment

The reciving dock is on one end of the building and the stairs and door to walk into the warehouse are on the other end of the building. There are vents in the roof that are never opened and heaters that went years without ever being repaired. Again only if a customer complained or a safety inspector issued a warning was anything having to do with the building dealt with.

Environmental Friendliness

They want everybody's money and have to accept that when you do nothing to motivate employees they only ones that stay long term are those that can accept that.

Work-Life Balance

strange situation, they were so uncaring they would allow multiple employees in the same area time off at the same time and force whoever was left to do their jobs and the jobs of thoswe they let off and force them to stay till it was done.

Company Image

No one I ever toaked to spoke well of the company but because I did my job I never spoke to management. Only employees.

Job Security

If you showed up and did not complain you could have a job for life. Whether you worked or not is not a big factor as management only cared if the overall job got done or not. Did not matter to them who did it.

Handicapped Accessibility

If the owners of the building provided it then the management of the branch did nothing to prevent it's use but they did nothing in regards to improving any of these either.

Workplace Safety

My experience with this was they started following OSHA standards after corporate in Arizona demanded they do so and that was only after an incident occured at one to the other branches that made OSHA take a serious look at their practices.

Challenging Work

I resigned because I was starting to lose my pride in my work and that was not acceptable to me.

Inclusive / Diverse

no, they do not want to hear from employees any more than they want to talk to them.

Suggestions for improvement

  • They would have to care for any suggestions to work. They have an atmosphere of bottom line indifference.

What I like about the company

They do leave you alone.

What I dislike about the company

They leave you alone as in completely alone.
