- Barclay Brand Corporation31.Aug 2016
The front office, ie... sales, support, non- union personnel, are encouraged to spend time together. Parts employees and techs are not included.
Support from management
Not at all. Management is disjointed and argumentative. They fight amongst themselves and create a very hostile environment
Teamwork is not allowed. Every tech must work on their own and asking for help is strictly prohibited
Freedom to work independently
Although techs may not reach out for help they are micro-managed
There is little to no communication, and what little there is gets muddled when management in-fighting inevitability takes over
Attitude towards older colleagues
Older colleagues are pushed to retire
There is good training but no advancement and personal development is of no interest to management
Overall compensation for your work
When I quit for another company I left for an identical position with a 20% raise
Office / Work Environment
the shop isn't ventilated. there is little heat in winter and no air movement in summer. there are no shop tools or safety equipment.
The only interest in recycling comes from the CFO continually pushing for heavy metals to be scrapped for cash.
There is no concern for family or time off unless work is slow
I was embarrased to work for them once I learned of other companies reputations
I was always afraid of lay offs
I had a lot of pride on my work. Barclay only wants quicker turnover and has absolutely zero interest in caring for their customers
Inclusive / Diverse
Ideas are not fostered or supported.
Suggestions for improvement
- The continual abuse and negation of your employees has caused every single top technician to leave for better employment. Paying your technicians less than industry standard and refuting agreed upon raises is unacceptable. Constant in-fighting between management is unacceptable. Lying to customers and suppliers is unacceptable.
