Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee), Princeton – December 13, 2012
Cons: all the time in between paydays
This company was an absolute NIGHTMARE! On the interview the so-called Manager who interviewed me & who I worked for did nothing but disparage another Manager who she did not like.Turns out without him she would be more useless than she proved to be, a real empty suit. If you want to ascertain the real deal on this company ask how many lawsuits they – more... have against them & how many different company names they were under before G.E. bought them for the profit margin on 1 particular product. I resigned from there effectively immediately & H.R. called me months later to conduct an exit interview. I told them check with my attorney. What a circus! – less
