Company Culture

Coworkers were great. Supervisors were hit or miss. Not very consistent management and multiple department managers decisions often conflicted.

Support from management

Ha! They follow their little checklists but know so very little about how to help, motivate, and manage people

Teamwork

Encourages, yes. Actually gets involved with interacting?? Not really. Unless its upper c-level management

Freedom to work independently

Only if you work under their specific requirements. Anything outside of that is nonconformity and they look for a way to pull you back.

Internal Communication

Only upper level management and occassionally a department supervisor was good at managing people and good with communication.

Gender Equality

Plenty of women in management positions.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Plenty of older employees

Career Development

Yes, but all were either seniority based or based on who you knew and references

Overall compensation for your work

Union pay great

Office / Work Environment

Environment was fine

Environmental Friendliness

Recycled and used environment friendly products

Work-Life Balance

I worked unpaid OT and management constantly turned the blind eye, yet always noticed if I was two minutes late

Company Image

I was, until they refused to help me work through my problems at work. They just abandoned me and brought in someone else

Job Security

The position, yes. But all depends on the person

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes

Workplace Safety

Safety was frequently checked on

Challenging Work

They pay well, but they will make you work the equivalent of three jobs. Initial onboarding training takes at least a year, but not so willing to be patient during that first year.

Inclusive / Diverse

Some departments were more diverse than others.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Have a manager or HR who will actually listen and consider the employee side, not always the managers.

What I like about the company

Most people were very welcoming and kind. Employees usually undertand who the "Problem" supervisors are, and can either point them out or help you deal. Just be careful if you do have a bad supervisor, to document eveything!

What I dislike about the company

How they refuse to question supervisors who have positions they supervise, with high turnover.
