I only worked with older and younger women of a certain race. Caucasian.
Inclusive / Diverse
I was one of middle aged to younger white women working in my department. I think they only hire people who'll 'fit' in.
Suggestions for improvement
- Supervisors should supervise and not 'guess' whether employees are getting breaks or understand the massively, ever-changing schedule. I've hears supervisors yelling at employees to 'get a move on', 'get out of the way', and other disparaging remarks to numerous to mention; they do this over company radios. Seems they have no sense of approaching someone and just telling them something. But most of that yelling was to hear themselves yell. It's infantile. Worse, customers at the business have to stand there and hear it on 'other' employee's radios. Professional? I don't think so.
What I like about the company
It's a pretty place to work. That's it.
What I dislike about the company
Workers didn't know what hours they'd work until maybe day or two ahead of time, if that much. Hours were kept low...and I mean 'low'! One supervisor encouraged workers to take work home, then wouldn't report it to HR so the workers could get compensated. In the part of the co. where I worked, only young or older Caucasian women had been hired. These folks mean to work you to death. All starting salaries are $8 per hour. Period. No mention was ever made of raises. Benefits only start after about 90 days, and they're very poor. The company mentioned they may not be including health care in the future. If you want to work hard for nothing, pay more to get to this out-of-the-way place for gas than you're making, take abuse such as being expected to work at home without compensation, then this is your dream job!
