I worked at Emser for almost 5 years and in the beginning I loved my job. After the first year you are beat up terribly by the operations regional manager and other higher ups. She will make you feel like the lowest form of scum on the planet and yes, everyone in the company shares this opinion. Their job is to basically lower your moral then leave. This company is great about making you feel bad about yourself and talking out of both side of their mouth. Emser use to have a grasp on what it meant on how to treat employees. Now you are strictly a number to them, replaceable too. If you're not a favorite of regional management, forget about being promoted. Smaller branches never get noticed. Emser is a firm believer of out with the old and in with the new. They will use you up and spit you out. Never felt like a manager, just a worthless associate who was micromanaged to death.
Work life balance, kind of.
Grow eyes in the back of your head. Someone will stab you in the back eventually.
