Degrading, oppressive employer
Monitoring Operator (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 21 July 2015
Despite having a quarterly bonus, this job was completely lacking any kind of reward or sense of accomplishment. Quarterly reviews point out each of your flaws, as well as repeatedly drawing attention any previous demerits that may prevent you from getting the quarterly bonus. Reviews which come closer to the qualifying score are examined more closely than others, resulting in a reward that is always just out of reach.
Employer is extremely rigid about the 70-hour work week, and refuses to allow any modifications for your schedule, family, or health concerns. Days off must be booked annually in spring, except in rare cases.
If you are a new employee, you will probably end up working a night shift. If you can't handle the night shift, you will be fired.
70-hour work week, oppressive review system, no care for employee health needs, no choice of scheduling
