Company culture

The managers don't work well with the workers because they are too busy faking being a manager

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get rid of these incompetent managers.

What I like about the company

The pay was average and the place was clean.

What I dislike about the company

The managers were at odds with each other and I got caught in the middle. They think they are saving the world when the reality is they sell junk yard parts.

Company culture

Poor

  • Employee

Support from Management

It's very so so

Teamwork

The employees are the best part of the job there.

Level of Autonomy

If they feel your smart enough they leave you alone.

Communication

Wouldn't find out about certain things till they happened. Rather then letting me and the guys get prepared for it.

Gender Equality

Pretty sure

Attitude towards older colleagues

Yeah cause they can't keep anyone so they hire anyone.
