Pros: pay is ok, good health care benefits.
Cons: culture, stress, too many rules, they could care less about us.
-too much work to do daily and not enough help. we need more help. temps.
-too many rules, regulations, bureaucracy. no room from creativity. the mindset/culture here is horrible. micromanaged.
-you must follow the manual here. do things the way we've done them for 50 years. without exception! we are humans not robots! throw out the manual.
- the – more... list of things you are not allowed to do is very long. longer than the list of allowed things you can do.
-managers and bosses are overly demanding. it's their way or the highway.
--Quickly and often managers tell you when you did something wrong, but rarely mention things you’ve done well.
-the status quo is the standard here.
-instead of fixing problems or finding solutions, everyone spends their time making sure they don't get blamed for things.
-they give you vacation and sick leave but get mad when you want to use it. taking off makes the cleaning crews short handed, so they look down upon you taking days off. days that they gave you or rather, you EARNED.
-Custodians are working beyond our limits on most days just trying to get everything done (large unrealistic work loads), and management keeps demanding and expecting MORE. This creates LOTS of STRESS. We are people not machines. Take steps to reduce our work loads, not add to it! – less
