Support from management

2/3 of more of the managers out of each of the 10 branches they have, do not support their staff, along with not showing leadership; meaning....leading by example and not asking your staff to do anything that they wouldn't do themselves.

Workplace Safety

Not necessarily. They do not, or at least offer it on any kind of consistent basis, in the 7 yrs I worked there.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire people internally/externally upon merit, instead of referralsog jon-qualified people. Pay more to their employees, management especially on the branch level need to respect their employees, instead if talking down to them, along with communication. There's barely communication especially between the back offices and branches....a divide, which leads to low morale. Everyone wants to play the bland game. No one wants to take responsibility. Lastly, if you are really sick, have an emergency, etc. they comes up and you either have no time or are within your 90-day probationary oeriod, they will give you a final written warning for "Abuse of Time", even if you had a valid reason including a family or lived ones illness, etc. it's totally in empathetic, and lack of common sense....many managers thrive on issuing corrective action.

What I like about the company

The health and retirement benefits are great!

What I dislike about the company

It's not what you know necessarily, but who you know there. Example: people who are referred, are by board members mostly, and if you are close knit with them, it pays dividends for a future higher position....not what you know, but who you know to get lead positions. They post internally for positions, I interviewed for two, along with a few other people, and the entire time the decision was made of who they were going with. Also, management is told to hire referrals-regardless-of their background, how well the interview went, personality, experience, etc., in which 6/10 barely make a year, and 9/10 get fired/quit, and 1/10 succeed.
