No Place for Growth
Office Help (Current Employee), New YorkJune 5, 2014
Pros: hours
Cons: management is not here to help-no growth-human resources will not help to promote you !
If you are looking for a segment position . Here's the place to work ! Everyone is out for themselves, and the Human Resources department is on board with it ! They add on more responsibilities and the pay might as be minimum wage ...because your are not getting a raise no time soon ! Don't believe the hype with the good benefits that's where they will – more... get you ! People die looking to get promoted ..Get out while you can or you will get lock in the office b.s.

pitiful place to work
Operator I (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAJanuary 19, 2014
Cons: all of the above.
HR is terrible.. They will emphasize each day how you're just an temporary.
Don't start here if you want to be in the water industry. There are no manuals. All information is passed down by word of mouth of how to run anything there unless you already know about it. Don't let the position fool you. You''ll be hired on as a full time temp. Every day – more... is the same old same old..things breaking and other crews not doing their jobs out of laziness and incompetence. Look else where to start. – less
