Reviews

Support from management

Recent changes in management and situation is improving.

Career Development

You CAN work from the lowest entry level up to highly skilled positions over time if you WANT to. Training is continuous and ongoing.

Work-Life Balance

24/7-365 operation. Critical work mostly overnight.

Challenging Work

There is a lifetime worth of new challenges if you want to take it all on.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Decrease the amount of time it takes to be hired on. Most people have found employment long before they are even called in for an interview.

Company Culture

No recognition, no incentives

Support from management

They are unqualified, don’t support their employees, never follow through on anything

Freedom to work independently

You work independently because management doesn’t have the time or desire to bother with you

Internal Communication

Communication is awful, management always claims they will get back to you but then they don’t and always say they are too busy

Work-Life Balance

They couldn’t care less that you have a life outside of work

Company Image

The community has a poor opinion of this company

Suggestions for improvement

  • Put qualified people in management positions, give employees some recognition, support your employees and do your job as managers, do things to boost morale

Support from management

Bad management causing very high turn over rate

Attitude towards older colleagues

I worked there for over 11 years and my ideas was never taken to account

Overall compensation for your work

You will do the work for 4 deparments and not get paid well for it..

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get a new manager.

What I like about the company

Pto

What I dislike about the company

Management will write you up for using the restroom. I guess having your hemroids flare up and bleed in you seat is ok but not have your customers wait for the next bus.
