How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at E.S. Fox Limited? What are the steps along the way?
If you are related to someone in the "club" you are in within a week.
Regular staff get a 1-2% cost of living increase every year.
Upper management gets thousands to tens of thousands in bonuses every year despite the fact that it is not earned and most of them do nothing all day. Bonuses are based on P&L, so the less staff they have doing the work, the more money the managers will make.
Office hours are Mon-Fri 8am - 5pm. Having any kind of life outside of work is frowned upon, and the only family they care about is their own. Upper Management show up and leave whenever they want, but they don't do any actual work.
Walking on eggshells 8 hours a day, fearing you will get fired for no reason. Because that is what they do. Usually right before Christmas.
Regular staff work 8.5 hours/day, but you are expected to do 16 hours of work in this time frame.
Upper management attends work 1-10 hours/week when they feel like it
If you are in the "Boys Club" perks include: a company vehicle (with gas card), give yourself tens of thousands of dollars in bonuses every year, come and go as you please, screw up without consequences, treat staff like dirt, hire family & friends, fire staff without reason or explanation, make bad decisions and blame staff, collect high salary paycheck without doing any work, receive expensive gifts from suppliers, disregard company policies when it suits you, and ignore labour, safety and environmental laws.
Perks for everyone else: ugly/useless Company swag at Christmas (salaried employees only), tickets to Sabres games (once a year, if management likes you) and leave at 3pm on long weekend Fridays (if you complete your entire day's work by then)
The union is terrible and does nothing for you.. generally you work beside other unions that come in and out of the shop making double your wage.
