Focus is a temp to hire company located in the warehouses they supply employee's for. My office was located at Gold Tip in Orem, UT and I hired their employee's. I loved my work environment, Gold Tip's management and their employee's, and came to love all of my employee's as well.
I was employed by Focus Workforces. My supervisor was amazing, but once he quit, I really got a glimpse of how horrible the upper management was. For the sake of anonimity, I will use numbers for the chain of command, putting the highest manager at number 1.
When I first met manager #1, he made me feel extremely stupid. He was arrogant, and came across to me as sexist. When I asked him to explain something to me, he chuckled and then answered talking slowly, as if I was a child. Manager #1 is also the one who terminated me in front of Manager #2 and another employee, and again, Manager #1 was arrogant, treated me as if I were stupid and didn't know what things were, and kept dodging my questions.
The pay was not even close to compensating me for the job requirements or what I was worth, and they refused to give me a raise. I was the only Focus employee and they demanded that I complete a work load meant for 2+ employee's,
I worked when I was sick, on my days off, and after hours because I was the only employee, which I didn't mind doing, but I was not getting paid near enough. I did everything I was instructed to do, but was never recognized for anything, and then, I was terminated without cause. I was never verbally warned or written up for anything, and losing my job was a complete shock. In my opinion, as well as Manger #3, this was an unnecessary stupid move. When I asked the reason for my termination, which I did several times, they avoided answering by changing the subject, and I never got an answer.
Manager #3 hired me because he was promoted to be an Area Manager, overseeing both Focus locations in Utah. He knew I was an excellent employee and that he never had to worry about my location because of this. Manager #3 ended up quiting because the promotion and pay he accepted, was not what Manager #1 had promised him.
I was dedicated and loved this job and would work for them again, as long as I was paid what I am worth, and not working under managers #1 and #2.
