Suggestions for improvement
- Expand cubicles to two per employee where there are clusters of overcrowding next to entire areas unused. Discourage inappropriate and low-class language for those stationed near customer areas. Instate and enforce confidentiality agreements for those with access to sensitive information, with appropriate penalties for infraction.
What I like about the company
If you are a hard worker you are treated well. You are given the tools to do your job and, if you prove yourself, can climb the ladder - TO A POINT. As long as you do your job well and know your stuff, management allows you to control your job to a large degree. No micromanagement unless you need it. Close to the highway. For the economically depressed area, decent salary. Lots of goodies available in breakroom when they were close to expiry. Employees are looked at by management individually and treated according to their own merits. Open-door policy. Approachable management. Attendance bonus. Sometimes slow and requiring tenacity, management did make good on everything promised during interview, and more.
What I dislike about the company
Only the warehouse workers typically said "bless you," when you sneezed, "goodmorning" when you arrived, "goodnight" when you left, or held open a door. Dress code appropriate for high school but when no one sees you, what difference does it make what you wear? No coffee. Crowded and dirty bathrooms where employees "hid" to smoke during inclement weather. Department supervisor knew employee rates and did not keep it confidential, lowering morale and productivity. Owners came in late and left early, got in line first for picnics and retreated to their offices, not mixing with the "common folk." If a door was held for one owner, she walked in without even making eye contact or a smile - arrogant beyond her ability/knowledge in my limited experience with her. New Stanton's infrastructure is horrid. Vacation and flex time was not appropriate for those working on the corporate/office side. Too much employee gossip and bashing, not enough team building. Sometimes management out of touch with reality. Punching a time clock for office workers was demoralizing - trustworthy should be hired and treated as such - or removed for those of us who actually worked without pay on weekends as necessary to handle small issues along the way.
