Company Culture

Needs major reconstruction

Support from management

If you are in the click

Teamwork

Only work within the laborers

Freedom to work independently

No, unless within click

Internal Communication

You have to train yourself," google, whatever system they use and learn."
Company info only given to people of choice

Gender Equality

Not really

Attitude towards older colleagues

They are looked down on and eventually let go

Career Development

Not offered

Overall compensation for your work

Mgmt. only, but not for the hours worked

Office / Work Environment

It is suited to what you are doing, unless a department is behind then you might be put into a very cold without proper clothing

Environmental Friendliness

Sure, it's trashed

Work-Life Balance

You have to work extra hours are you want be there long.
For get about a balance, your expected to work 14-16 hours

Company Image

95% Hispanic ran at all sites,
Not proud due to discrimination and again I'm Hispanic

Job Security

Being Hispanic you will have your position, if not your job is in jeapordy

Handicapped Accessibility

Ramps only, no tools

Workplace Safety

It's safe, only training given is a video when you start with the agency, nothing else

Challenging Work

Was proud to be able to instruct, teach, and mentor all who work in my department

Inclusive / Diverse

No, they don't really. Being Hispanic, I saw far too many people discriminated against due to skin color, one African American, was challenged daily but he didn't give up on his staff. He taught me a lot, but the company and agency had it in for him; I like my people but we all need to stop this stupid discrimination and keep people who are doing a better job than even the heads are doing and can do!

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stop passing judgment on color of skin be fair to everyone not just because we are Hispanic
  • You brought back many of us Hispanics to work do the same and stop making people fear for their job, if not Hispanic. Myself Dry Mgr. and a former HR Mgr, know you guys made a mistake when you let go the Fresh Mgr; best person to ever run 2 Departments... You should call him back, everyone knows he brought more ideas that saved money and increased production.

What I like about the company

Not much

Company Culture

Very poor

Support from management

No good leadership, they bark out but don't listen for ways of improvement

Teamwork

No, your told about how to do something after a mistake

Gender Equality

Again if your Hispanic

Attitude towards older colleagues

No one older than 45, No!

Career Development

Depends on if your in the "Click"!

Overall compensation for your work

No salary doesn't match work responsibilities, discount program is your benefits

Office / Work Environment

It's tolerable

Environmental Friendliness

No!

Work-Life Balance

No work/life balance, you work or your replaced

Company Image

NO!
Was at 1 time!

Job Security

No stability, restructuring 80% to African Americans, myself and other Caucasians 25%, Hispanics 3%!

Handicapped Accessibility

There are ramps and parking spaces, but too many abled body people allowed to park without being handicapped

Workplace Safety

Yes some areas safe, training not provided, told don't do that after something happens

No not at all, Hispanics employees have the say so, even over African Americans supervisors if they still have the position or title!
