I did not realize when I was hired that the entire family (I only worked for one son) were my bosses even though two of them were retired and only came into the office for visits. My boss commended me but the rest of the family was not supportive of any of their emploees and thought nothing of putting down employees who were not present but in front of customers and other employees. Did not foster a culture of support and trust.
Office / Work Environment
Office is not up to date. Heat didn't work when it was cold and A/C didn't work if it was hot. Employees smoked in the buildings and in the NEW vehicles they were working in. Computer I was assigned was a 6 year old computer that did not run the software required. I had to share a desk for the first few weeks and was given a card table afterwards to work from. I was in a different part of the office from the Engineer I was working with. Phone system did not work well.
Vacation was not accrued for the first year. Working hours were expected to be 9 to 10 hours per day without breaks and weekends added in as needed without notice. No overtime. No consideration for commute or family emergencies.
Smoking in the workplace, Plasma cutter within 3 feet of the dust collection system for the CNC Wood Router. No fume exhaust for the plasma cutter or the welders. No safety glasses or safety shoes mandated nor provided.
What I like about the company
It was a small friendly atmosphere mostly. The workers got along very well. MY boss was very understanding but he did not have a the say in what happened and was not there to help run things.
What I dislike about the company
My boss and the engineer were not there enough to do proper or very much training. Office manager did no training of "company policies" and doled out rules as she saw fit. No one followed them. Shop employees were on there phones constantly and on the company computers. She spent time on Facebook. The other one was on Facebook and Pandora. The other brother would disappear for days at a time. Communication was poor at best.
