Nepotism is rampant.
Support from management
Dictatorship with the owner acting like a king over his peasants. There is no involvement in the decision making process.
Employees are pitted against each other. Teamwork is frowned upon and non existent.
Freedom to work independently
All email and phone correspondence with customers is reviewed and critiqued. No independence.
Success is hidden and not talked about. Negatives are the only thing brought up by management. Very demoralizing.
No women on the sales force. They had one for two months and then she was fired for being too emotional.
Attitude towards older colleagues
If you become too costly and your salary is higher than the average, you are let go. It happened to the branch manager of 15 years. Termination was not due to performance, but greed.
There is no moving up within the company. This is not a destination company. All management positions are owned by family members.
Overall compensation for your work
As low as legally possible. They got in trouble with LARA a few years ago for forcing manadatpry overtime, with no pay. 7:30-5 with one hour lunch. They would get the 30 minutes extra a day for free.
Office / Work Environment
If it is hot, we can open the garage doors. We are each given small 4x4 cubbies/cells.
Large industrial size garbage container emptied weekly. All cardboard, paper products and plastic are discarded and not recycled. Having a recycling company pick up once every few weeks would take money out of the owners pocket, so it is all just thrown away. #sad
The only family that matters is the owner their kids that work there.
Low moral and no one knows if they will be fired next. They do well on profit, but it is not shared with the workforce that makes the company run.
Here today...gone tomorrow. No one is guaranteed. If they fire you, they say you quit and deny your unemployment.
A former coworker had MS and they have all of the necessary ramps and an elevator.
OSHA may need to do a walk through. Warehouse workers are not required to wear steel toe boots, hard hats or safety glasses.
Answer the phone, complete the sale, repeat.
