Company Culture

You are just a pair of hands.

Support from management

I asked the director a question, emailed him twice and it took him 2 months to answer.

Teamwork

Management doesn't help out even if you are short handed.

Freedom to work independently

They don't take the time to train people, or check up on them, other staff is told to help if you fall behind.

Internal Communication

Staff was told they don't need reasons for what they do. You are just supposed to do what you are told.

Career Development

They don't train for advancement. One worker has been in same position for over 13 years and has never been offered anything else.

Overall compensation for your work

Min. Wage

Office / Work Environment

Hostel. Management doesn't take criticism and doesn't like to be questioned.

Environmental Friendliness

Teachers and students have commented that the Whitson people at our school are not very nice.

Work-Life Balance

No nights, weekends or holidays. But that's because I work at a school.

Job Security

None. We have had substitute that have worked months and then are passed over when a position becomes open.

Workplace Safety

Untrained managers have put knifes in soapy sinks, and cross contaminated many food items.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Training for management and leads. Hire people that have shown they know the job.

What I like about the company

I like the school I work at.

What I dislike about the company

Almost everything.
