I took the job specifically for the insurance. The month after probation, the insurance was terminated. NEVER trust anyone there. Any personal information will be used against you.
Support from management
I was expected to work overtime every day, for three years, and when I would leave on time (you know, because I have a life and all), the next day, I would get a visit from the Production Manager, accused of not being a "team player", and routinely threatened with termination. When my wife (who is blind and has a kidney transplant) needed to go to the hospital, I called off to take her. Every half hour, I received calls from the Production Manager asking when I would be coming in. I had scheduled vacation three months in advance in order to get married. I asked for a Thursday (to drive to meet my bride at her parents home), Friday (to get married), and the weekend for honeymoon. Before I left on Wednesday, the Production Manager claimed he never knew I had scheduled vacation, and THREATENED TO FORCE ME TO BE AT WORK ON SATURDAY, EFFECTIVELY CANCELLING OUR HONEYMOON!
No teamwork at all, in fact, most people went out of their way to make life more difficult for anyone around them. Very miserable attitude.
Communication was ok, if threats of termination are considered communication.
No advancement opportunities, no pay raises, no appreciation shown. Even the Christmas bonuses were junk samples given by customers, and a few dollars.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Unless you belong to the family of the owners, everyone is treated the same, like indentured servants.
Overall compensation for your work
Not one pay raise in three years, even though I was doing the job of three people (rewind, maintenance, and production).
Office / Work Environment
The one good aspect of this company.
Work will be your life, no exceptions.
Suggestions for improvement
- Close up, and let another company take the customers.
What I like about the company
It was a way to not be unemployed.
What I dislike about the company
Nepotism, disrespect, bullying tactics, unappreciative of personal efforts.
