We were frequently instructed to violate company policy when it was expedient.
Support from management
Leadership is virtually non-existent at every level I personally witnessed at this company.
Very little effective teamwork; except for rare cases of cooperation, it was every man for himself.
Freedom to work independently
We were consistently undermanned, so the workload was never balanced.
Minimal communication of a constructive nature.
The company actively recruited and hired minorities as long as they were not women.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Early on, the company hired many older employees. Later, people over 50 were often fired for the most trivial infractions.
Advancing with this company is virtually impossible without relocating to Missouri or Ohio.
Overall compensation for your work
The pay was competitive and the benefits package was above average.
Office / Work Environment
Work was indoors in a climate controlled building.
I don't think these guys ever heard of the EPA. Noxious chemicals were often simply poured down the sink.
We were always short handed, so this was non-existent.
In my department, no one seemed to have a positive opinion of the company.
We worked as contractors at another company's location and, as such, could be terminated at any time for any reason at the request of the contract holder.
To my knowledge, this company does not hire people with special needs.
While the company provides excellent training, the implementation of safety procedures is left up to individuals who are more interested in impressing customers than in the safety of their employees.
The job was almost too easy.
Inclusive / Diverse
We were not encouraged to share our opinions or ideas unless they mirrored those of management.
