Management lacks the leadership skills for people in today's world
Facilities Services Manager (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – July 9, 2017
The Site I worked at is one of the shame of Americold!
One year there: 1 District Mgr, 3 GM's, 2 Ops Mgrs, Several Supervisors fired, or Quit all around me. Hourly just as bad turnover.
A freshly promoted District Manager convinced me I should run away from the place like it was on fire. Here is how he did it:
He tried to make me an example across his new District. He sent an email copying everyone of a condition that had been corrected before the email was even written on Friday around 4PM. It was a Lie!
I decided to gather my personal things, called my Supervisor and quit. HR never called to give me an exit interview, so they must have made excuses - instead of doing their job.
Operations had so much turn over and poorly trained people - after 1 year I still couldn't get Operations to write Work Orders/lift Truck Daily check sheets. I saw no Team, no cooperation, and it all starts at the top - lack of people leaders; just bunch of hard nosed rules readers.
Pay was OK, There are some good people within the organization.
Earnings - EBITDA Margin is more important than even common sense
