When I was assigned my position through an agency, I was told by them that I would be doing forklift and labouring duties. That's fine and all, but when I arrived for the shift, the management team didn't even know I was to be starting that day. They also gave me a 5 minute tour of the building, proceeded to give me ear plugs and a broom, and made me sweep up their horribly dirty facility for the entirety of the shift. No direction, no support, no supervision whatsoever.
When I asked why I was doing a cleaner's job and not lift truck operation, they said "they have never hired a cleaner before you". They are definitely a management nightmare.
