Great family approach but not followed through
ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Vernon Hills, IL – August 5, 2015
Between the two departments I worked for there was either too strict rules or no rules at all. Once department made you feel like a child in school with the number of rules without legitimate reasons to back them up. The other department didnt have any SOPs in place making for a chaotic work environment with a level of stress that eas very much unnecessary.
I was able to learn a lot about the business from both the sales and service department to the manufacturing one. I acquired many skills but nothing which would ever been deemed necessary in the company deeming an ability for advancement.
Management was either high and mighty, not knowing what was occurring on lower levels or didn't care. It felt as if management was very ignorant when it comes to how the people below them did their jobs. It is my opinion that if you are managing someone you should have full knowledge as to how your subordinates are and have to do their job in order to be successful.
The best part of my experience at this company was being able to work with so many great, good hearted people. I made many friendships while working at this business, some I will have for the rest of my life.
Bonus, paid vacations, chances to interact with the higher ups, including the chairman on a daily basis.
Poor structures, no SOPs, family theory not in use, skeleton crews, unnecessary stress
