Pros: Great co-workers, quarterly bonus check
Cons: Awful management
The work at G.L. Huyett was not bad. The piling on of job after job, past personal job description, was stressful. Being helpful was taken advantage of. There was a lot of pressure and stress put on one person. Not just myself personally, but several people there. Shop was great, I felt bad for warehouse... When hired, you are told set working hours with possible 1-2 hour overtime here and there. There were several days warehouse people got in at 7-8 am and didn't leave until 6-7 pm.
Management is so scattered, and doesn't know what one hand is saying to the other. They take on more than they can handle and leave it for employees to handle. Not being able to make up their minds was an issue as well. They tell you to do something one way and then change it back to the way it was or a completely different way. Hiding what they do bothered me too. Whenever there was an audit, The whole company was scrambling to hide all evidence that things were being done wrong. If it was wrong, why were we told to do it that way in the first place???
This company has no tolerance for emergency situations. Sick children, family issues, and personal emergencies. They have a point system in place and expect that if one person there can see it useful then everyone should.
Favoritism was an issue too. You are safe as long as you are a favorite. If you are not, and try to voice opinions, or point out problems, you definitely know your job is at stake.
