Great Office, fun working if not for incompetent parts of company
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Barstow, CA – 29 January 2015
Always had fun working with everyone in the office. Cross trained jobs and office ended up being one of the best in the country despite size. Was fun letting my bosses take credit for all our hard work since our communication was so great. Plus they were always quick to let us know how much they appreciated us. Local management always did the best they could for any situation, even safety.
Sadly, upper management (not the Area heads) were somewhat rigid in investing in something they didn't have a focus group for.
Was forced, despite repeated concerns, to have basically a half eaten bicycle seat on my Forklift for well over a year. Only got fixed when the forklift died. Meaning not.
Any incident reports to the safety department were determined to be your fault even if the issue was explicitly not an at-fault incident. If your name was on the top of the paper reporting it, you were at fault.
In fact, over the course of my time I began to realize the Safety Department was unable to comprehend any safety reports nor was willing to learn much about safety. If not for my love for everyone in the Operations and parts of Middle Management, I'd dare say any lesser person would have sued.
Awesome Management and Area Management. Great coworkers. Customers always fun.
Safety Department dangerously incompetent, slow to adjust
