Worst place I've ever worked!

1.11

Support from management

Definitely not setting realistic expectations. The work load on one person, sometimes two, is absolutely ridiculous. There are so many things that go into being at the front desk of this place, getting people signed in, the endless testing, finding their file, answering the non stop calls by the second ring, data entry, running around, etc. the work load is never ending. God forbid you make a mistake even though the goals and expectations are forever changing and sometimes not communicated to everyone. Employees feedback is really never appreciated.

Teamwork

No one works well together in this place. While I was there it was drama from day one. Since the office is mostly women, the cattiness and gossip is awful. Day one I was told to watch out for this person and that person and it didn't end. No one interacts well because we are constantly looking over our shoulder wondering who is saying what about you. Everyone talks bad about each other and when you bring it up to management nothing changes. I honestly felt management was talking about me too.

Freedom to work independently

I don't think so. They're constantly coming to check on this file and that file, and did you do data entry for this person and that person. They also have microphones hidden around the building to hear your conversations. I was told by someone not to ever say something you didn't want heard because they could hear you.

Internal Communication

Communication is at a zero! They tell you something one day and then change it a few days later and if you weren't told about it and make a mistake later you get spoken to like you're incompetent. No one ever tells you you're doing a good job. Only when you're doing a bad one.

Gender Equality

I don't feel like women are treated any different than the few men that work there. I think it's pretty equal.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I don't see any discrimination in age differences.

Career Development

No one will advance in this company if they have any appreciation for themselves. This place is a revolving door. Employees are constantly quitting left and right. In the few months I worked there, probably like 6 or 7 people quit for one reason or another. I know 4 more people left after me. That's just in a few months. If you can stand to be working for people who don't appreciate you, your opinions, and you can hold your tongue then yes there's room for advancement.

Overall compensation for your work

No way. You would have to pay me a lot more for the work load I was given plus the drama and feeling like you're disliked everyday.

Office / Work Environment

I honestly hated the environment from day one. I couldn't wait to leave at the end of the day. A lot of days I left in tears because I was so tired of being talked down to and holding my tongue. As far as the office itself, it's a nice office. Outdated technology wise, but otherwise ok.

Environmental Friendliness

No environmental awareness as far as I could tell.

Work-Life Balance

I had a set schedule. But I know the other recruiters and managers have a horrible schedule. They're in by 7am and sometimes don't leave until after 7 or 8pm. I know a certain person wanted a work/life balance and when they brought up the fact that the work/life balance was nonexistent and asked if there was a way they could work on that, they were told they wouldn't change their ways for this person and if they didn't want to be there they didn't have to be. Totally disposable.

Company Image

Absolutely not.

Job Security

I never felt like my job was stable. The owner didn't even welcome me to the company. It took the owner about 3 weeks to even speak to me after I started. For someone who has their own business you would think they would welcome new team members who are bringing in business and creating more revenue for them, but no.

Handicapped Accessibility

No elevators on this premises but I think it was handicap accessible. I'm not sure if there would be any positions even open for someone with a disability though.

Workplace Safety

Yes there was an accident training video.

Challenging Work

To say the job is challenging is an understatement. Everything is a challenge the second you walk in the door. Starting with the fact that you feel like you're under a microscope at all hours of the day. I always felt like if I breathed wrong I'd get told something. The work load is endless and exhausting and frankly impossible for one person to do.

Inclusive / Diverse

I don't think ideas or opinions are supported unless theyre the same ideas as the management. If you disagree or suggest otherwise, forget it.

Suggestions for improvement

  • None. I really don't want to make suggestions to people like this.

What I like about the company

I honestly didn't like a single thing about this place. I think people have way to long of a process to go through to look for job placement, a lot of who are never called or thought of again. I liked one person in the payroll department and one of the receptionists but that's it. I didn't like management or the owners at all.

What I dislike about the company

Just about everything.
