Pros: you get a paycheck
Cons: small check, no benefits, no medical, late hours, over work employees, discrimination, inconsideration for employee safety unless they are at risk and so on.
Working as a night custodian at Mesa Community College I learned that you get little respect and are treated very poorly. It was also nearly impossible to "move up" in the custodial section of the school especially because, when I was employed at least, about four years ago they stopped hiring for "permanent positions" and most employees were forced – more... to work in a "temporary position" for years and therefore were denied the benefits of the "permanents" because there was no room for progress. The "permanents" seemed to do no wrong, even if they let black mold grow in their trash can, which actually happened, and were allowed to keep their jobs when the "temps" could just leave a paperclip and be fired. It appears to be run ineffectively, especially for the employees and show plenty of discrimination. The custodial supervisors/managers seemed to put the employees in constant fear of termination regardless of their work causing a very unhappy and stressed atmosphere for their workers. I personally, had an "accident" while on the clock, and lost my unborn child. When I confronted my supervisor and asked what action to take I was informed to go back to work and get checked out on my next day off, which was not for a few more days. I had another instance where I became ill at work and it was necessary for me to go home, however, none of my supervisors/bosses were on site to relieve me when there should have been. I also had my job threatened by one of my supervisors because I preferred using a smaller, easier to manage, and more effective vacuum. I am, overall, very displeased with This employer with not only how I personally was treated, but how my fellow employees were treated as well and would not recommend this job for anyone unless it was a last resort. – less
