Pros: the hourly employees were very supportive
Cons: ridiculous expectations, 12-14 hour work days or longer if you don't complete your "non negotiables", managment is poorly staffed, overall morale of the company
The management of this company should be placed on an island in the middle of the ocean with nothing but a bucket with a hole in it and a broken exacto knife. Let's see how well they fare in learning how to survive.
This company hasn't a clue in how to treat people and has insane expectations of this job. Instead of making the job a two person team – more... which it should be - one buyer, one planner - they combined the position, presented the position in a way as to snowball people into thinking what the job entails and then once they've started, change the job description up and add impossible and unreasonable expectations.
In my case, I have commitments outside of my job nearly every evening but after I started, I was expected to give them up and be willing to work 12-14 hours a day not counting the time it took to get to the facility each way. This company bullied and harassed me in front of other people when I was still trying to learn everything and I was expected to understand and know everything within the first few weeks of my arrival. There was little to no training on the job - the most training I received was on their new software program that they implemented the 2nd week I was there. But knowing Oracle is small potatoes in the overall scope of the position. Perhaps if the corporate office paid more attention to the people who are actually doing the work instead of the dollars they expect to make every day (oh wait a minute, what am I thinking? Placing people over profit? That would never happen.) the company might be decent. But unless you are an octopus who can juggle, have no family and no life whatsoever outside of work, never apply to work in this position. It will be a complete waste of your time because believe me, you'll be back looking for a new job before you know it. – less
