Company Culture

The work environment is very unhealthy on many levels. Many supervisors are mean, rude and don't encourage the employees. There is no barrier between customers and employees which can be dangerous and also helps spread viruses and diseases. Also because the DMV is notorious for long lines and bad customer service, lots of customers come in defense mode anticipating the worst.

Support from management

Some of the supervisors cause conflict and employees have no real say in day to day operations.

Teamwork

Most of the employees are very helpful and understanding. I think because we all go through the same terrible experiences, we work together to make the day go by easier.

Freedom to work independently

The workload is fairly distributed, but that's how the company is structured to avoid any malfeasance.

Gender Equality

In the Harlem office, almost all of the supervisors are women and they still don't appreciate other women. They don't treat the women as nicely or respectfully as the men.

Office / Work Environment

As everyone knows, the computers are very slow. This causes employees to take longer to complete a task, and the system goes down often....terrible. The lighting isnt the best, but its not dark so I guess its ok.

Work-Life Balance

So employees get vacation days, sick time and personal days...but you cant use them. Vacation days can be used during certain times but cant be requested far in advance. If you call out sick, especially during the probationary period, it counts against you. Uggh and doctor appointments aren't taken into consideration either even when advance notice is given.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I believe supervisors should be retrained and monitored in customer service as well as how to treat employees. Employee feedback and suggestions should be taken into account. Employee grievances should be resolved and not ignored.
