Disorganised, Overworked and highly stressed Management.
Installation Technician (Former Employee) – Canada – 20 November 2017
Flying by the seat of its pants, the management of Zabitat, Owned by ODL Inc. is a complete high strung non communicative and utterly stressed out ball of wax. If you ask a question, make sure you ask the right person because nobody else will know the answer and you will get the wrong answer or nonsense. The VP does not even live in the same city as head office and is not around. The Managing Director is actually in charge and any management beneath him in the chain of command can forget about a promotion because he is the "big fish in a small fishbowl".
Promises to be a part of the "ODL family" are given to new hires, but the reality is that Zabitat is not like ODL at all. ODL has changed as well over the last 2 years and the "Family Feeling" is fading fast, Money is the new boss, Custom orders of small value are not taken care of and are sure to disappoint. I can assure you that within less than a year you will find that "things are not as they were explained" and you will be disappointed, as well the freedom to say what you think is a complete lie and you will feel the complete opposite. I would not recommend Zabitat as a long-term choice for your next employer but if you are strapped for cash short term and need time to get to where you want to be then the benefits are good and so is the pay. Bear in mind that you should not accept the first offer of employment, negotiate for a higher salary.
