Suggestions for improvement

  • More strict sick policy in place Better compensation More communication from the top down

What I like about the company

I've been working there for 3 years now. I love my direct supervisor. I love our mission. I love my actual job and what I spend my time doing. It is very gratifying work.

What I dislike about the company

Supervisors seem out of touch with front line workers. Compensation should be better. No overtime for salaried employees. Unable to move up because I am too young.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I have no knowledge of the current workings of the company, so I can not give a reasonable answer to this question.

What I like about the company

I enjoyed the job very much. I can tell a funny story. I was cooking popcorn, and I burned the popcorn because the bag got so hot that the microwave blew up.

What I dislike about the company

I have one complaint that the board of directors did not like me enough to keep me on as an employee. I was released from the position because "they did not have enough money to pay me."
