Very few commendations, more criticisms, very little trust between GM, certain department heads, and workers.
Support from management
My first supervisor was a weak yes man, second had been out of the auto service business, instead working in more of an administrative position. The G.M. who had never worked in a service department was continually changing procedures, workflow, etc...
Some employees were willing to work together, while certain others would go behind your back, utilizing your resources to get what they need/want instead of discussing their needs with you.
Freedom to work independently
Micromanaged by supervisors whether they had knowledge or experience or not.
Upper management was very much numbers oriented, and did keep us updated.
Overall compensation for your work
Far and away the best part of this company. Average pay, but above average benefits.
Office / Work Environment
PC's were old and slow, before the remodel, our office was dingy, not well lit, afterwards lighting was much better. On the down side after the remodel, we still had antiquated office equipment, and the number of employees put together in close confines made it difficult to hear.
The company did support local causes and charities.
This is one of the areas where I was misled as to working hours. After I was hired, I learned that we needed to be there a half hour early one day per week/26 hrs or 3 days per year. Then I was told that every other month, they wanted me to attend a function for another 2 hrs per/12 hrs or 1 1/2 days per year. Lastly an additional 15 min per day at the beginning of the day. 1 hour per week/52 hours or 6 1/2 days per year. It adds up!
Few people spoke fondly of the current regime. Most missed prior owners.
After nearly 2 years of employment, performing at a high level, I was told that I was not a good fit. One week later, another given same speech.
No ramps, no elevator to 2nd level where HR, and the lunchroom was located. No milking room.
The biggest challenges were navigating the obstacles put in place by upper management.
