- Kelly Supply Company25.Jun 2018
Old boys club, backbiting was common, never got to deal with an issue up front, if someone had something theyd tell the CEO first then itd trickle back down having to be rehashed repeatedly. Had a guy take video of me secretly because he didnt like my conversation. The company did nothing and 3 weeks later i was "let go" due to "lack of funding".
Support from management
My immediate supervisor supported me in sales, but not in any real changes. He didnt want to stick his neck out so close to retirement.
Teamwork is a rarity when everyone complains regardless of what you do.
I had the CEOs number. But again, no ever addressed issue directly. Hence the 3 stars.
Attitude towards older colleagues
I know typically the older people are treated with less respext. But it was opposite here. Most in the company were well over 40. Many people had 20+ years in.
They had no idea how to mentor.
Office / Work Environment
Backbiting, backstabbing, no communication on issues, someone was always waiting for uou to mess up so they could take it up with upper management. It was a tpxix environment.
My immediate supervisor was friendly as well as one of my co workers. But it only takes one to ruin that, and my supervisor never made concrete boundaries for the toxic person, and thus became part of the problem.
This was really good. I was able to take the time off i needed, when i needed it. Never was refused.
On sales routes i REGULARLY ran into companies with which we were on bad terms because of a variety of issues. Usually it wqs because we didnt follow through wuth a promise.
Job security is great if you shut up and drink the koolaide. Which i did not.
Suggestions for improvement
- Stqrt listening to customer complaints and ACTUALLY getting more in stock. And if you dont care about walk in business, remove the option and save some klmoney.
What I like about the company
Very family time friendly. I could always take a moment to say hi to my son, leave early if need be for an appointment, etc.
What I dislike about the company
The backstabbing passive aggressive nature of most of the people, the blindness to the customers desires, and the innability to change.
