Skilled Labourer in Abbotsford, BC
Great team, valuable skills/experience, beautiful product, but an owner who treats his employees very poorly and is very difficult to work with.Started off as a positive experience, I thoroughly enjoyed the job, loved the experience and skill I was gaining, was proud of the work we did, and got along really well with the team. Everyone was skilled, hard-working, and everyone had great ability to work together as a team. The owner paid well. However I came to realize after some time working here that the owner treats his employees very poorly. On a relational and professional level, he does not show respect, value, or appreciation to his employees. He doesn’t listen to or trust his employees, he frequently picks out their flaws, blames them for any and all problems in the business. He doesn’t communicate directly, regularly leaving very rude passive aggressive notes when he gets angry (which was fairly often.) He blows small things out of proportion, and instead of focusing on fixing a mistake and learning from it, he thinks that his employees are either making mistakes on purpose to damage his business or that they just don’t care and have very poor work ethic.
