- Kirkland & Ellis LLP15.Aug 2017
Always felt like I was walking on egg shells. There was only one person in the department who was cordial and would assist me with normal questions a new employee would be expected to ask as to how to proceed with the daily functions in the department.
Support from Management
The management of the after-hours support team is horrible at best. The second shift supervisor has her favorite employees, especially one employee who she is so close to that she takes vacation with this employee. This should not be allowed. During my first week at the first my weekend supervisor was fired. After my second week, my second shift supervisor went on a 2 month medical leave. There was no support system in place while my supervisor was out on her leave. Also, I only received 2 days of training while other employees received a full week. I was not given a best practices and procedures manual because it was so out-of-date. When I complained to management that the person in charge at the time of the supervisor’s medical leave (supervisor’s best friend and most likely a relative) would not even look at me when I arrived and she would not even respond to me when I would greet her when I arrived. I was told by management “she was a matter of fact” type of person. That was not the case. The second shift supervisor felt threatened by me because I previously managed a word processing department and made sure she made my work situation difficult by not providing me with the proper training to learn Kirkland’s best practices and procedures and providing me with a support system during her absence.
