Negative environment, No Training, No Support from upper management
Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 31 October 2014
This was by far the most unsatifying warehouse management position I have had in my whole career. The upper management were extremely unhelpful, there was no training provided and there was no support from the hire ups... you either "sink or swim". The general attitude was that the employees did not work hard enough and were there to be pushed around, but let's keep in mind they would wait months for serious safety violations to be corrected and are not paid well and are generally talked down to by the upper management. The hours were ridiculously long, with unexpected shifts often thrown in the mix and you are on call 24-7, most nights you do not sleep. Always responsible and held accountable for departments and problems that not only were you not trained on, but also may know nothing about, but be prepared to answer for these in an educated manner or have your job threatened by the plant manager.
The only good thing at this ADM location, were the other floor supervisors. They too felt the same struggles and would work hard to support their fellow collegues.
the employees and other supervisors were great to work with
Long hours, on call 24-7, unexpected extra shifts, no work life balance, lazy and accusitory upper management
