Pros: pay is considered decent
Cons: personal climate, distance, attendance policy
When an hourly low performance employee is best friends with a Supervisor of the same dept, it creates a real unpleasing hostile environment. This place is very strict about everything, you cannot talk to co-workers, and online/cell phone use is strictly prohibited, UNLESS you are the best friend of the supervisor. Then you are allowed to take one hour breaks, vs the 30 minute breaks other employees are very strictly limited to, peruse Facebook at leisure, pay bills online, shop on line, and take and make unlimited personal phone calls.
Management here is poor, and very uncaring. You and your family are never taken into consideration. Attendance is ran on a point system. So if u have young kids, you won't make it here-UNLESS of course you are the supervisors best friend. The training here also consists of, here's where you sit, call if u need help. However the team lead in my department goes out of their way to not help you. Other employees comment that no one gets trained there properly, and you have to train yourself. But don't ask a co-worker for help, you'll get an email telling you to not talk to people.
Someone last week, clocked out 7 seconds early. This was an honest mistake because the staffer we clock in and out on is not in sync with pc's time (which we have told management about over a year ago). The Employee received a point for this problem. They would not fix their time out, and issued them a point.
People here work with their heads down, and never smile or speak. We are told not to get up from our cubicles through the day. Only at the end of shift to get or make copies, and send faxes. People here are also always sick. ALWAYS.
If there is an exceptional amount of traffic on an expressway on your way in, and you get held up. You will get a point.
