North Dakota, In it for the money.
Pros: Good pay
Cons: Everything else
I will start with the Pros because its a short list. It has good pay, or did. I used to be Champion and that was a fantastic company. Then Nalco bought it. The quality of everything dropped drastically. Customers were lost also. Then EcoLab bought it and it became Nalco Champion. Things entered a death spiral from there.
All the money is made on over time. The OT is constantly under attack. They want a 70 hour week performed in 55. It just isn't possible.
Management is clueless for the most part. It was the drivers experience that kept my location afloat despite new managements attempts to "fix" everything.
Benefits... meh. They were good. Once.
Everything comes down to being the drivers fault. Period. End of story. Upper to lower management and HR all agree on this. Despite the lip service you are "indirectly" encouraged and allowed to run illegally to complete orders, dispose of hazardous and toxic waste and just get the job done. If you put your foot down you get labeled a bad attitude. If you go along with it you are a team player right up until management needs to cover their buns. Then you get thrown to the wolves.
I and many others could go on for hours about what goes on in North Dakota but you get the idea.
Bottom line is if you work for these people, do it for the money.Get as much as you can as fast as you can and get out. Go find something that makes you happy.
Oh I almost forgot to mention the cameras in every vehicle that record your every move, every sound and every statistic your vehicle produces. Enjoy your 12 hour day with a camera in your – more... face for every second of it.
Avoid this company unless you just need some cash short term. – less
