- The Gerber Group Inc30.Sep 2016
There isnt any. Its work work work, do more do more do more, while mgmt is out at sporting events, on their boats or in their homes in other states/countries enjoying time with their families.
Support from management
They always pass the buck or have you call a fellow employee for help because sadly 95% of the time, mgmt has no clue
There is no such thing as a team at Gerber. Its all for one and that one is mgmt pockets.
Freedom to work independently
Nope! They watch everything you do, even listen!
There is rarely formal training, new employees are usually just thrown into a mess the last person who wasnt qualified to do the job left behind.
Nope! Its a male dominated field and women are extremely underpaid and cheated
Attitude towards older colleagues
Not much opportunity to advance. Once in a position thats where you
stay if you are female while males move up the ladder quickly
Overall compensation for your work
The compensation in not fair at all. Many employees havent had raises in years, not even cost of living increases.
Office / Work Environment
Everything is out of date, Gerber doesnt spend money where it should be spent in its shops and in its employees. The shops are filthy and an eyesore, employees work with broken equipment or no equipment most of the time because mgmt doesnt come to shops to see the need to put money into the shops.
Nope! Very wasteful company.
If you have a family or children this is NOT the company for you!! Only relatives and friends of mgmt get special treatment and perks, if you arent either of those, you will be expected to work as long as they tell you to work and as many days as they tell you to work. Doesnt matter if you have plans, family or life. These instructions come from upper mgmt especially at end of months while they are sitting at their pools at their vacation homes. When review time comes, IF you get a review, none of your efforts will be recognized nor will you get a raise unless you are related to someone in mgmt.
Not at all. It was an embarassement
The only jobs that were secure were family members of mgmt and people who never did their job. They were ones who never got fired, people who were there every day and actually worked got fired for the smallest most ridiculous reasons. Usually to make room for someone that mgmt wanted to bring in.
Not at all. They could care less, didnt even have it for customers in some shops
Most places were a live hazzard and only cleaned for inspections.
There is nothing to be proud of. There are so many corners cut its sad.
Inclusive / Diverse
Nope. No opinions are considered.
Suggestions for improvement
- Treat all employees fairly. Take into considetation your employees and their families. Most employees need at least a cost of living increase to help keep food on a table, roof over their heads and gas in their vehicles to get to work. When Gerber is proudly announcing how they break income records but most of your employees cant afford to feed their families because they havent had raises in years is pretty sad but even more disgusting for such a huge company!! Shame on Gerber!!
What I like about the company
What I dislike about the company
