Company Culture

Each location is different. Can't speak for other locations but the one I worked at was fun and laid back. Laughed every day. Helped keep my sanity while working there.

Support from management

Expectations for running two locations and having everything done on time were not realistic. Goals for the position I was in were communicated but trying to obtain answers to questions about teaching those goals was lacking.

Teamwork

Within my location, we worked well together. Each of us had difficulty with other employees at different locations.

Freedom to work independently

Yes, I was trusted to work independently.

Internal Communication

The position was overwhelming. Was not told I would be Office Manager for two locations. Hired in as Office Manager and told I would take care of some additional duties for another location. That tells you something about communication right there.
Had to e-mail one of my supervisors several times in order to receive a response.

Gender Equality

It is a male dominated industry. For the most part, women were treated equally.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Most of the older employees were involved in Administration.

Career Development

No criteria was provided for professional advancement. Training was provided and supported.

Overall compensation for your work

Compensation was severely lacking. Ran two offices and was paid the same as those running one office. Benefits were provided but not enough for running two offices.

Office / Work Environment

Environment was fine. Had all the physical tools I needed to do the job.

Environmental Friendliness

No concern for the environment. There is no recycling program.

Work-Life Balance

No work-life balance. Came in at 7:00/7:30ish and left at 5:00. Definitely pressure to stay late due to time sensitive reporting. Again, I was taking care of two locations.

Company Image

At one time. Now, I wouldn't suggest or promote anyone to work there or conduct business there.

Job Security

Yes, the job was stable. At the time, there was no risk of positions being eliminated.

Handicapped Accessibility

For customers, there were no stairs. For employees, there were a few steps here and there. No immediate accommodations were available.

Workplace Safety

For the most part. If you had to enter the service area, you used common sense. No meetings on safety were conducted.

Challenging Work

It was challenging due to the fact that I had no one at either location who knew about most of my duties. Had to keep calling the office I was trained at which was run much more efficiently.

Inclusive / Diverse

Never met most of the employees due to distance between locations. Diversity was not really discussed.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Make clear exactly what the position entails when hiring.
