I was a manager that managed 3pepeole,one being in Montreal. My main roll was to manager prdoduct life cycles customer serviceand outside purchasing. The hardes part of my job was communicarinf with my U.S. counterparts as they did not comminicate very well with Canada.

A typical day at work if when I pull files for orders that come in to me from car companies.

COPY & GRAPHIC ARTIST / FORMS DESIGNER (Former Employee), Celina, OH – June 11, 2014
Pros: knowledgeable superiors and excellent benefits
Cons: corporate makes it less personable regarding special requests regarding company protocol
At the initial phase of my employment, it was relatively robotic, which is to say my duties wee very delineated. The department was well enough staffed that everyone had only specific duties. Essentially, I was on the graphics system creating forms as they were instructed per a set of directions.
Management was well-versed inasmuch as protocol and – more... knowledge goes and managed to keep the atmosphere pleasant and as stress-free as such a department will allow.
Co-workers were learned regarding their duties and quite fun to work around. Although there were three shifts ( I was the third), Everyone practiced a mutual respect and working professional relationship.
The most difficult part of the job was the third shift being so late that any discrepancies or questions regarding the job at hand would be relegated to waiting until the next day when the person to ask would be there. This posed as an ever-present problem and basically only related to the third shift.
The most enjoyable part was the camaraderie we all shared that at times made the workplace an enjoyable event. – less

Data Entry/Clerical (Former Employee), Houston, TX – March 17, 2014
Pros: food variety, free garage parking
Cons: absence of hr
No HR to express concerns & very poor management in the administration department. Other than those two major things, they had a personal chef, semi-friendly people and cool opportunities within the company.
When I first started with this company it was the greatest place to work. It was more of a family than a job. Everyone helped everyone else out and there was little jealousy about who got a promotion. It was bought out and the culture was so different, most people couldn't handle it and left. It became a job not a career or a family oriented place. I – more... managed a virtual sales team in the NY/ NJ metro area and also had a team of telemarketing personnel as well. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with all of the rule changes and dealing with customers who didn't like the new ownership. – less

Hardware technicians will take equipment out for testing before shipping to a customer, and it is equipment controls duty to keep track of this.

Software Support (Former Employee), Dayton, OH – February 13, 2013
Pros: benefits are pretty good
Cons: atmosphere of fear and repression
This was a great company to work for until it was purchased by a competitor 5 or 6 years ago. At that point it became very stressful and most long time employees were eliminated. Everyone feared for their job daily. After that random drug tests were implemented and tobacco was one of the "drugs" tested for. Anyone testing positive for tobacco was fired – more... on the spot.
Previously there were internal job postings and much communication from corporate. Now an heir of secrecy is prevalent and the only way to find out if a position is available is if a higher up chooses to interview you.
Long time employees could earn up to 5 weeks vacation, but once the new regime took over those with 5 weeks were reduced to 4. several paid holidays were removed as well. – less
