Over Worked and Under Paid
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) – Stellarton, NS – 19 April 2018
I worked for this company for many years. It was an amazing place to work at first. If you are smart and show interest in learning, you will end up doing the work of 3 people and get poorly paid for one. People are only really nice to you if you help them with their work but be careful, it very easily will become your work along with all of the problems with it from long before you came to the company. Forget pay raises, they are a joke. Forget good performance reviews, no matter how much you do, it will never be enough to warrant a good review. Forget life, overtime is not optional it's required to keep up. Sometimes unpaid overtime is required. You will go to work in the dark and go home sometime before the next morning. Forget getting help with problems that arise, that's your issue to take care of and if you get it wrong, you will be reminded of it repeatedly for years. You must be a mind reader, it's an unspoken job requirement. Forget needing time off for your kids or appointments, you'll have to beg for it and most likely be denied. Each manager sets their own rules, HR policies mean nothing. If you know or become friends with the right people you will do ok. If you don't, forget advancement. You are treated like a child. It's very much a high school setting where the popular rise and the rest don't. Also, great place if you want to be talked about behind your back by your manager and team lead....and their friends so forget confidentiality too.
met some very nice people
