There is no supervisor. He will tell employees that they're going to become a supervisor but that he needs to see that they can handle the work before he gives them that title. He does it just so he can have others do work he doesn't want to do.
Support from management
There is no support for the employees at all. When you're hired, you're told to do things a certain way but then you get scolded for doing so. If you kept a copy of the forms you signed that clearly stated how to handle situations, showing that to him (as proof that you did it the way you were told) will only make the situation worse.
Employees usually didn't stay around long enough for anyone to really determine if the employees interacted well. There were a couple of us who stayed and we interacted well for the most part but I think it's only because we all were in the same boat and understood what was going on behind the scenes.
Freedom to work independently
Work load is not fairly distributed. Schedules were given out once a week. If he liked you (or you didn't get on his bad side the week before) you're schedule was okay. But if you did something to upset him, you either had 1 day of work (and it would be a 4 hour shift on the other side of town) or he would give you a schedule with a couple days and then try to give you write-ups for missing shifts (that he never gave you / told you about / put on your copy of the schedule).
There is no communication. He very rarely answers the phone and most of the time you have to call from different number for him to answer.
Everyone is treated equally - we're all treated like the garbage on the street.
Attitude towards older colleagues
He doesn't hire anyone over 30 (willingly anyway).
You have no room for advancement or career development.
Overall compensation for your work
There is no compensation / reimbursement if you have to buy something work related. Wages don't match what you have to do / the bad environments you have to work in and the wage is not satisfying. There are no benefits and checks are usually on time - if you pick them up on pay day. He leaves them outside his door where anyone walking around could grab them.
Office / Work Environment
Horrible. You're either outside with no way to keep warm / cool or you're working in a bad neighborhood and a lot of the areas put your health at risk.
He's aware but does nothing to help.
Same as before - Work load is not fairly distributed. Schedules were given out once a week. If he liked you (or you didn't get on his bad side the week before) you're schedule was okay. But if you did something to upset him, you either had 1 day of work (and it would be a 4 hour shift on the other side of town) or he would give you a schedule with a couple days and then try to give you write-ups for missing shifts (that he never gave you / told you about / put on your copy of the schedule). You can have somewhat of a personal life (as long as you don't get on his bad side).
There is a negative image of the company and that image is a direct response to the reality.
The job never felt stable to me - mainly because he was losing accounts left and right.
Conditions likely to not comply with OSHA standards and training is almost non-existent.
No. There's nothing challenging about what you have to do.
Inclusive / Diverse
He will hire anyone no matter gender, race, etc but opinions that differ from his are not supported.
Suggestions for improvement
- He needs to sell the company. I don't believe he is fit to run a company.
What I like about the company
It provided me employment when I needed it.
What I dislike about the company
See my comments / notes above.
