Stressful place to work

When I noticed safety violations in the shop yard, and mentioned them to head office, I was let go a week later for being honest. There was a lot of favouritism that went on in the office with certain project managers and people getting away with things that others were punished for doing

Used to be a great place to work

Service manager likes to run his dept. with fear and intimidation. He tends to tell the employee one story and his senior management a different story. He is very narcissistic and not to be trusted.

Critical thinking and decision making abilities are always required on the job. Everyone is friendly, the department feels like family. Management and company are very supportive.
