Would Never Have Worked Here If I Had Known...
Cons: no lunches, expected to work free overtime, management that doesn't care, having to dress professionally when you are working in disgusting places, high productivity
This is not a job I would ever tell anyone to take. The whole goal of my job is to make the company money. A person in my department brings in AT LEAST $120,000 a year. There are 30-40 of us, keep that in mind. You have to go above that to get a bonus. Yup, no raises. You get a bonus based on how much you go above what is already asked of you. SO that means that it gets taxed like crazy and you barely see it. It's not worth it. The bonus I could get is still NOTHING compared to what the higher ups get. The CEO makes over $400,000 a year and gets a LARGE bonus. Why don't you give that to the people who make all the money for the company? And they do everything they can to take your bonus!
They complain to us about things like the way we dress. Jeans aren't "professional". MY JOB IS NOT PROFESSIONAL. I work with the clients with bed bugs, who don't shower and who are gross. I risk taking bugs into my home, being in filth and going into horrible conditions. But Meridian says... here is $28,000 a year and if you work your tail off I will give you a tiny bonus with a special bonus tax where you lose most of it... ENJOY. Whatever, this job is a joke. The managers make RIDICULOUS money and the people earning the money for the company are not given compensation. In fact, they don't care about us at all. We are replaceable by the next stupid person... they just want to pay as little as they can to make as much money as they can. I made the company like $130,000 dollars and that just isn't good enough. I work all day, get no lunches and am expected to fix everyone's problems. The co-workers – more... are amazing and we are there for each other. Because we all make horrible money and can barely get by... we get each other. But get real, Meridian. You want us to dress professionally to work with bugs, dirt and people who won't shower? You are ridiculous. And thanks for the worst insurance in the world. So glad our clients can get their medications... but we can't. The overall environment of this job is horrible. No room to move up. And you can NEVER have a raise, ever. Awesome. Way to motivate your employees. – less
