  • State the consequences that will occur if the workers do not adhere to the rules and actually follow through with them. Have surprise inspections of the workers and see how they work and give them grades every few months.

What I like about the company

The company worked well with my schedule when I was attending school and would offer extra time at the end of the school year of there was extra money. The staff were super friendly and the administration was always there in case I needed someone to talk to. Your feelings are taken into consideration and you never feel out of place.

What I dislike about the company

There were never any consequences to bad behavior or work ethic. Most workers were able to do whatever they wanted to do, arrive late or leave early without any actual consequences. It grew tiresome for those of us who actually did our work and still had to do the work of others.

  • Building locations and the quality of the air conditioning.

What I like about the company

Everyone works well together and gives their opinions

What I dislike about the company

That my office has the air conditioner switch in another office and it's hard for me to go into that facility to turn it on.

  • Hold ev.eryone more accountable. Sometimes not everyone is as experienced or hard working. .It happens in many jobs. As. a school we dont have the direct authority to hire or fire some people. The school district handles that. In some instances people have stolen and a very minor consequence ge.ts handed. School district i.s so large that a lot if complaints also go unnoticed. There are people who spen.d years working for the compan.y and eve.n retire. without putting in their full effort. Meanwhile we have ot.hers that are hard working and they dont get ack.nowledged or rewarded. It's a difficult thing to manage given. The large size of the company. None of these instances I've personally had to deal with. I'm the manager of a cafeteria for the school. It's a small school so I dknt have a large staff to oversee. However I previously worked for a much larger cafeteria and we had about 22 employees. In that case we did have employees at different working levels. Different ages and races and there attitudes were not always positive. Punctuation is important and having to deal with a few of them with their punctuality was difficult. They knew we could not fire theme. Just log in their tardiness and give them an incident. Even after all the steps were taken as a manager, it didnt seem to really matter to the employee since the consequence was rather minor. People never get fired for things like that. It has to be something way worse. At my second job we had an incident where a director was reselling tickets that were meant to be for the community or kids who participate in the community programs. This guy got caught and never fired. He had to be moved to a different location and was not allowed to handle money. Ge was taking advantage of the system. And didn't get fired. Very unfair if you ask me. Later he got moved to our center and he claims that it was all a rumor. My second job also has a huge department and situations like that I'm sure happen all the time. .....

What I like about the company

Staff is professional and positive. We share time together at the end of the month to acknowledge birthdays and it achievements.

What I dislike about the company

I work in a school. The schedule in place is very flexible and it works well with everyone.

  • Less catering to students that are having discipline issues and more support to faculty and staff upholding policy.

What I like about the company

Everyone was friendly and supportive.

What I dislike about the company

I think that certain discipline issues could have been handled better. If a student bullies another, the cohorts should be switched.
