Poor management, overworked
Expediter (Former Employee) – Lake Zurich, IL – February 16, 2016
I was employed here for about a year and a half, as an expediter for a year. I worked about 13 hours a day, 5 days a week and i was guilted consistently to work late. Our management on third shift left before we did, leaving first shift in charge of one we left. They didn't care about our well-being nor did higher management realize how many hours they were running us. First shift management didn't take into account how we felt, just trying to make their dead lines.
Very high turn over due to long hours.
In addition they hired from the outside and gave very minimal training. I spent much time helping train managers from the outside. But then they would ignore everything i said later on.
Managers didn't listen to their employees and james, our operations manager, consistently made excuses for ALL of these things and nothing ever changed. He also had a way of not giving answers to necessary questions from employees.
All for 12$ an hour, some pretty decent health benefits and stolen life.
Management, short breaks, underpaid, underappreciated
