Full disclosure: I work in HR at GMS. I have been tasked with addressing some of the recent reviews internally and publicly and would like to offer a different point of view.
We appreciate both the positive and constructive feedback on here and take all comments as an opportunity to improve.
Regarding fairness… I don’t think I’ve worked anywhere where everyone is treated 100% equally. On a basic level, yes, all should be treated equally. However, those who perform better, have a stronger work ethic, act as team players are rewarded. We do not consider this unfair and would always welcome new employees that share this sentiment.
I also feel we are quite objective on how we determine salary. I’ve have seen a few times where new hires were offered more money than they wanted because they possessed more certifications and experience that usual.
Most people that work for us do not see this as a temporary job at all. Like in any environment, a small percentage of people aren’t a good fit; also, working from home sounds nice, but you need to be very disciplined and motivated. We have many team members who have been with us for more than 5 years and a few more than 10 years, so it is clearly not a temporary job. Our turnover is low and most of our hiring has been due to growth.
Again, we appreciate everyone taking the time to leave their reviews and welcome current and former employees to reach out to me directly.
Thank you for your feedback and take your comments as an opportunity to improve.
Please feel free to reach out to me (the person responsible for recruitment/HR) in confidence. I take these comments seriously and will do my best to address them.
