Terrible. It is a very oppressive environment and none of the workers are happy
Support from management
They set very unrealistic goals especially in the summer, however if there is a problem with equipment, they will make sure that everything is fixed ASAP
Teamwork is a very small part of the job because you are alone most of the time, but if you are in need of help, the manager is able to assist
Freedom to work independently
Independent work is all part of the job.
Again, just impossible expectations
As I have said before, from what I have observed, women are treated horribly
Attitude towards older colleagues
They don't typically hire really old people from what I've seen, however there was one employee I saw who was in his 70s
You can only move up so far before you hit a brick wall
Overall compensation for your work
They only pay a fraction of what you're actually worth. There was one Saturday we all worked and never got paid.
Office / Work Environment
There are very hazardous and unsafe working conditions
I don't know. Probably not.
There is absolutely no work-life balance. It is not a job where you can just work and go home. You are on-call 24/7. They don't even want women to take maternity leave rather they tell female employees that if they are going to have a baby, they need to give birth during the summertime.
If I had known back then everything I know now, I would have never taken the job in the first place.
Again, they fire anyone for any little thing.
Facilities yes, however do to safety sensitive functions and DOT physical regulations, handicapped people generally are unfit to do that sort of work
There is training, but very unsanitary and unsafe working conditions are an everyday occurrence
Its the hardest work there is just about and there are virtually no rewards. Just suspicion.
Inclusive / Diverse
About like anywhere else
Suggestions for improvement
- Care more about your employees and pay better wages
What I like about the company
What I dislike about the company
They care more about money than the well-being of their employees
