You will be a temp employee for years!
Fake. They put a lot of effort into appearances. Actually have input and it will be ignored and perhaps told it's not your job to be thinking about that like I was.
Support from management
Again they act like they do but it's fake. You will be taken aside and told in private to only do what you are paid to do
Honest? Not even close. Very bad environment for permanent placement and because it takes so long competition is fierce and people will lie if it will bump themselves in front of you
Freedom to work independently
Besides management and office support it was all men.
Attitude towards older colleagues
No. one guy worked there for five years as a temp and a younger guy came in and he trained him and they hired him under a year
Not at all. They consider any attempt at learning new things or trying to move positions or even asking questions regarding moving up as a threat and they will make your life miserable. Trust me please.
Overall compensation for your work
As a temp no. I got a plastic coffee cup for Christmas. 9 to 12 dollars an hour is not enough to even pay for half of the lowest insurance through the temp agency
Office / Work Environment
There is no pressure you do it or you don't and that means don't come back.
No. Very glad to have moved on and to be using my degree at a place that appreciates an educated individual.
No. Every month people were let go. Especially at Christmas or right after during the slow time.
Lacking. Not 100% if you were handicapped and hadn't been there before you'd have to know where these things were
Management will take credit for anything you do well if they notice at all.
Inclusive / Diverse
Diverse employees yes. Ideas and opinions perhaps but it was hidden if so.
Suggestions for improvement
- Don't have as many. There are waaaaay too many in lead roles that all want something done differently. They won't talk amongst themselves they will just belittle you and depending on who you talk to you will be doing the same task several times over while being verbally abused in the process. Not lean effective
What I like about the company
Not one thing. Rude staff. Unhelpful staff. Not honest even when asked something directly on future plans.
What I dislike about the company
They make you feel so inferior as an employee and as a person. No bonus unless you count a $5 subway gift card as something to help your family
