sanitation, and packer (Former Employee) – Fort Erie, ON – August 16, 2012
i personally am on a calling list, they go by senority (unionized) so i never know till friday what shift i'm on or even working.
i've been there 2 1/2 yrs and devoted my time and faithfully been there on this calling list often showing up with 1/2 hour notice, double back with 7 hrs in between shifts,always answering my phone.There is no job security at this time with Rich's,unless you have high seniority,
i was on a paid vacation last week and told to return for sanitation duties on wednesday, when i return i discovered i was not schedualed and have one midnight shift this week and nothing for next week , with no advance warning nor confirmation from management.
The morals from many of my co-workers are very low, and many are seeking other employment opportunities,
I have learned and earned many skills from Rich's, and for that i am gratefull, but as a single person and their unpredictability they have left me with no means to continue to support myself there financialy, i have been at their every call, called in when they dont call me,they may give me one shift so therefore they are not obligated to give me an ROE leaving me in financial distress,
As for the job itself i love it. when i am working i have no complaints,
i still am employed there but actively looking for job security
good pay with benefits
