Support from management
Leadership at Jimmy’s has no kind of organization or communication within. They will lie about things. They will not follow through on things they say. Some will go as far as bad mouthing the company, the way its ran and its owner.
Teamwork at Jimmy’s only happens well when upper management does not interfere
Freedom to work independently
Being supervisor of over half of their main warehouse, upper management would set forth the standard they would like to see improve and how they would like to get to the point of restructuring.
Once able to improve or restructure upper some upper management would lie and say things weren’t said. Argue and tell you things will never change for the better because the company says they want improvement but will never let it happen.
Other upper management will go behind other management and tell you to just do the improvements. Which in turn you argue with the other management and everyone ends up in a closed office and if you have read my small note about their leadership… Well you can kind of figure what war happened after the doors were shut.
Office / Work Environment
Jimmy’s Trucking is a time bomb waiting to happen. This is a 3rd party chemical warehouse. They have all kinds of chemicals mixed together. Meaning stacked on same pallet or stacked pallet over pallet sometimes 7 high. Corrosives, flammable, poison and toxic. This is no joke. They don’t have complete working spill stations set up and their only emergency eye wash/shower they have, 95% of the time you couldn’t get to it. It was located right next to their repack station ( which upper management said please don’t mention because the company had no license and or proper training to do repacks there. ) You always had to climb over stacked pallets, weave through trash cans and boxes and once to the eye wash/shower station you would always have to clean out the shower from stuff stored there. Boxes, trash, bottles and well let’s just say that you could be seriously injured from chemical burns before you could reach your emergency stations.
Socially aware… Clueless and will turn the other cheek.
They always made some salary employees always work a few hours on Saturday. They believe that what CAN be done today can wait to come in on Saturday.
