The employers give credit to some of the employees that don't do much. Some of the employees are good friends with the employers so there is some favoritism.
Support from management
They try to make sure everyone is comfortable with their job. They also try to make sure everything flows smoothly from start to finish.
Some of the employees were great with team work, others were not and did their own thing. Sometimes they wouldn't ask for help if they really needed it.
Freedom to work independently
Some of the employees like to hand off their work to others so they don't have much to do during the day.
In the beginning, I wasn't notified about a lot of things but that did change. They have meetings about every two weeks to make sure everyone is on the same page with their jobs, new events or procedures that need to be done, what can make the company better.
The place is pretty much all women except there are a couple men. Everyone is treated equally based on their sex and age.
Attitude towards older colleagues
The employers are trying to implement more younger people into the business so that it stays up-to-date with trends. The long serving employees get more benefits than the ones who haven't been there long.
The employers will work with you and support you while you attempt to advance in your career like if you're going to school. They will help train you. But once you're at the highest level of your career there aren't any promotions.
Overall compensation for your work
The employees who have been there the longest get paid A LOT more than someone who does the same job with more certification and knowledge. They do offer insurance benefits to full time employees. You are paid on time and if the business reaches a certain goal by the end of the month you get a bonus.
Office / Work Environment
Pretty much every working station has a computer and a printer. They were up-to-date. There is a lot of light and the rooms are very open.
They would collect donations for breast cancer awareness and diabetes awareness. They also collect glasses donations to ship to third world countries.
I didn't have vacation days because I was part time. They were pretty flexible if you couldn't work certain days. If you have a family emergency they are very understanding. The employers are very understanding but the employees that work directly with you and will cover for you don't really like when you can't work and they expect you to cover them without asking.
It is a very nice company. Professional, employees act like they know the customers that come in and the customers really enjoy that factor.
There aren't any ramps but then there aren't any stairs. I would say the way the company is laid out its pretty fit for someone with disabilities.
OSHA training is optional. It is not required. They do require you to have CPR training.
I was always happy to have certain tasks finished. I enjoyed being caught up in my work.
Inclusive / Diverse
The employers make the final decision but they do ask the employees what their opinions are and if there are any problems with the business that they aren't seeing.
Suggestions for improvement
- No favoritism, treat every employee equally. Enforce the employee handbook more because some people don't follow it and the employers don't do anything about it.
What I like about the company
They are very kind and understanding when you have a problem. They are available whenever you need to talk to them. They really care about their employees and their happiness. The employers try to give you a flexible schedule.
What I dislike about the company
There is favoritism. Half of the employees that work there are good friends with the employers.
