Problems with Cannabis Side
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) – Richmond, BC – 22 February 2020
- Roles are delegated
- Good wage
- Advancement based on an interview. They use the STAR example for all of their questions. They interview as if they have never met you to "keep it fair" but it's a flawed system if you're actually a good employee and have a poor short-term memory, nervous or humble. They recently promoted 2 external employees to a temporary supervisor position. They made rookie mistakes (ie. losing temper / incompetent computer skills or doing all of the work). Then when their 3 months as a temporary supervisor is up, they show their true colours and slack off. And you work as a supervisor without the supervisor position and pray for karma.
- Biased leadership. You could be yelled at by a different employee. Report to supervisor and be asked to engage and have 1 to 1 with idiotic employee. At the same time, you could be given a 1 to 1 by supervisor about raising your voice to someone who generally raises his voice to prove a point that he is constantly raising his voice. Then this experience is used against you for advancement and you have to prove yourself a second time, and you do so while keeping a cool and calm demeanor. Really idiotic experiences with management.
- Employees with tone issues can get away with a lot.
- First aid attendants get paid a little bit extra and do nothing + a week of class room work. I asked for a bandaid, didn't get one because he was "busy." I reported it to the manager. Manager asked me to report to my supervisor. Supervisor goes to the first aid attendant and asks why. Then there is zero follow-up. And you wonder why do they get paid extra?
- Management will blame you for a problem. Yell at you. Then you find out management is wrong. Then you ask them to confirm. Then they ask you to resume as normal as there is "conflicting information" and you wonder if you get an apology.
- If you bring up an issue, you're called sensitive by management. But if you fight back and do the same, you get a conversation about becoming a "better human being." Idiotic leadership to be honest. I'm about 2 experiences away from doing something about this.
Ultimately, people were born to lead and people were born to follow. It's just the way it is.
