Suggestions for improvement
- Fix the things I don't like above.
I like about the employer
Job security as long as you do a good job. Management feedback. Healthcare benefits.
I dislike about the employer
Lousy pay. Granted, I think it's lousy because I am entirely over educated and have made 3 times this salary. Not intellectually challenging. My brain is suffering from atrophy. Many employees do not go above and beyond to help other employees or management. Some of them don't even meet expectations. Dental insurance is bad: Delta Dental only covers 1/2 of what procedures cost. Plus, there is a $1,000/year cap. Last year, I had two crowns put on. There went the $1,000. I had to pay more than $1,000 out of pocket for the crowns. I also had to for cleaning, filling a cavity and x-rays myself. If you want more responsibility or to move up to management, you have to approach management. I have. I have also asked for the criteria to become a manager and have been told, "There's no one way. It's different for everyone." Not acceptable.
