Mediocre temporary job, best to be avoided unless desperate.
SHIFT COORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Hadley, MA – March 27, 2015
I found most co-workers enjoyable to work with. Upper management was difficult to work with, often creating policies and procedures that greatly hindered our ability to be productive. Upper Management's solution to every problem is to increase the responsibilities of the Shift Coordinators and Production Assistants without providing any compensation. Within two years, the workload quadrupled, the "salary" remained the same. The company's definition of the word "salary" was interesting and wrong, according to Merriam-Webster. What the company called "salary", worked like this: Work more than 40 hours and you are salary, work less than 40 hours and you are hourly. The Field Division VP described himself as a bully, which he reinforced numerous times, often using intimidating and often verbally abusive tactics to bully and demean those under his supervision for no discernible reason. The VP has also been heard making inappropriate and unprofessional comments concerning the orientation of staff members. The Human Resources Department behaves more like a criminal organization, often using any and all unethical methods they could get away with to deprive employees at all levels of certain benefits and compensation that employees have earned and were entitled to. Members of HR have been heard discussing unemployment claims, stating that "the company's unofficial policy is to fight unemployment claims with everything we have, including using lies and slander if we can get away with it, anything to avoid paying a dime for unemployment."
A few good people work here.
Poor management, shady business practices
