Great owner big at heart

2.39

Company Culture

It started off great in the beginning friends and family came together sad to say now I'm not sure where it's at.

Support from management

Needs better pay for management. And maybe the job would be taken a little more seriously.

Teamwork

It's a teenagers job in my opinion so dealing with a younger generation is not the easiest task.

Internal Communication

Communication was a big issue towards the end of my employment nobody knew who to answer to because I decided to drop my title of manager

Gender Equality

I was I can give a good answer on the topic but I would say it's a teenagers job so that being said it's the same nomatter which way you look at it.

Attitude towards older colleagues

It's a fast lube environment so taking into consideration that fast is in the title if you were fast enough to keep up and be able to get along with each other as well as the guest your good

Career Development

Well this is were I was sadly disappointed I was hoping for a career with great opportunity but it was looking like a dead end because of the hard times I lost faith in finding a new job but sooner than I knew I was on my way out of the company to a new start somewhere else.

Overall compensation for your work

This is the same situation as the last question my progress was not living up to the expectations which was not enough for me to survive with a wife and daughter out in the world.

Office / Work Environment

Very cold most times in the winter and hot in the summer

Environmental Friendliness

It's a fast lube, environment protection had been taken to consideration as well as our own safety but it was difficult with the tasks at hand.

Work-Life Balance

It was very difficult for me working most days 8-6:30

Company Image

I wish I could say good things but like I said in the beginning it was great tawards the end not so much what other people or employees choose to think or say is there opinion

Job Security

That was the best thing about this established the owe which was like a father to me was very kind hearted and felt for every persons situation and did what ever he could to help individuals.

Handicapped Accessibility

N/A

Workplace Safety

If you don't have the ability to think before you act and for shadow a situation before something happens the is not a good job for that individual even though we all try to look out for each other it was hard especially when it's really busy. And yes training was given but like I said a person must also think for themselves.

Challenging Work

I always take pride in my work giving the proper trying and the right push with encouragement anyone would love to work at the establishment but I started to loose faith after my progress was lacking the rewardment.

Inclusive / Diverse

I wish I could say I felt like a member of something great even though my opinion was taken into consideration I still fault distant as a manager it's hard to explain maybe because most of us was pretty much family in the beginning and almost tawards the end.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Remember where we began and how far you have come but realize we are the ones that helped you get there
