Pros: paid the bills - when they didn't cut my cheque in half
Cons: everything - do not work here.
afternoon supervisor review:
(If you don't want to read - do not take this position. In a nut shell. Do not. Horrible job.)
The wage works out to 18/hr on salary which is nice on paper, but you work a heap ton of extra hours without extra pay.
You will be given a work cell phone that you must answer 24/7. Even on holidays and days off. Even if you book time off. "Tough" said the boss.
The union is horribly strict and there was constant confrontation between management and staff.
Poor management. Could not give proper direction. A lot of unanswered questions.
Office staff are not able to take sick days. I called in sick at 4am with a fever (did not work until 230pm) and was still told to come in because "it's not my problem that you're sick" said my boss.
The work load will range from normal to tripple from a daily basis with zero added incentive. If your on salary you lose money every extra hour you work. You'll work a min 10 hour day every day. And get paid for 8 on salary.
There is no common courtesy or general respect. The drivers and shop treat you like you're a complete idiot. Lots of tension.
The company wasn't making money, so instead of filing for bankruptcy they decided to take half of everyone's pay cheques and hold them until you quit or were fired. To make their numbers look good on paper. This is 100% truthful. I will show my pay stubs to anyone doubting this.
This company, overall, will not be successful in future endeavours. The wage:work load ratio is horrible. The staff environment is beyond unprofessional and they will expect the world from you but – more... are not willing to give you anything in return. I do not and will never recommend this company to anyone ever. – less
