Painter, Pittsburgh, PA - July 4, 2016
Started working at Gerber Collision and Glass about a year ago. The company and place seemed to be a good place to work at first and I was excited to be part of the company. As time went on things started to change and the employees started to have tension between each other. This was due to the management telling each person what they wanted to hear and then something different to another employee. This made it hard to work not knowing exactly what each department was expected to do.
The management expected people to work long hours and that the job was to be the employees number one priority. There was a ton of stress by the end of the month pushing to get their end of month numbers. This caused employees to work weekends including Sundays and holidays. When I started I had a schedule that was agreed upon and without notice it was changed and I was forced to work longer hours and Saturdays. The manager said he was following Gerber's policies and they were the ones enforcing the changes.
The more we worked and produced the more that was expected of us and that was without much thanks. I felt unappreciated and was expected to work long hours without any compensation and no raise in site. I worked in a thankless, critical atmosphere.
I would not recommend this place for employment unless you do not mind working long hours and that your life revolves around work.
