- Goodwill Southern California31.Jul 2018
The amount of worker's compensation claims filed for stress is unbelievable. Upper management just sweeps them under the table and pays the people off hoping that there will be no negative publicity or tarnesses to the image they try to convey to the public.
Support from management
Management only cares about themselves. If something goes wrong, they will look for a scapegoat to blame and never take any responsibility.
If you were considered a favorite, then the others would work with you. If you fell out of favor, you were not given the time of day.
Freedom to work independently
This was good but only because nobody takes the time to train you. I was on my own from day 1 with very little support.
I have held several jobs and never came across one where the communication was as poor as this one. Policies are changed by upper management but the effective date of the change and distribution of the changed policies/procedures are never deciminated to staff!
Employees are let go from their positions yet the Company does not inform staff. There was one Department head who just disappeared one day and never returned. When his subordinates asked about this person, they were told that this person had been transferred and was now working for another department. A staff person contacted the person in question via personal cell phone and, when asked what department he was now working for, was told that he/she had been let go by the Company. Yet they told everyone this person was still working for the organization. What a joke!
See inclusive/diverse comments
What a joke this is. All upper management cares about is themselves and how they can look better than others. Way to much backbiting and throwing each other under the bus to be successful. All of upper management should be tossed to the side. The CEO doesn't know what is going on half the time.
People were let go for no reason other than being told, "we have to cut back."
In trying to cut back, this Company left one safety person for the entire organization. Safety violations were committed daily and nothing was ever done about. When a safety issue was finally addressed, there was never any follow up to ensure compliance. The affected supervisors knew that and had no incentive to make the changes as they knew they would not be held accountable.
Inclusive / Diverse
Yes, for rank and file; however, most of upper management is made up of 'good ol boy' white folk.
Suggestions for improvement
- Replace upper management with those who care about the employees, not themselves. And make some diverse appointments when doing so.
What I like about the company
The rank and file people are great to work with; however, they are taken advantage of.
What I dislike about the company
See my above comments, but they all point to upper management and the way they(try to) run the Company
