Pros: high pay (due to no benefits)
Cons: bad communication, no holiday pay, condescending
I worked a job at Fifth Third Bank for Pomeroy that was supposed to last 3 month but due to budgeting issues with the client, only lasted one month.
The job arrangement was totally online - I never met with anyone from Pomeroy until the job was over. There was so much paper work to be done to secure the posting that I often wondered if it was all worth – more... it. The I-9 verification form that I filled out had to be verified by a non-family member which was difficult to find.
Two weeks after I started work I was finally sent the information to log my time and the employee handbook info. The instructions are not only confusing and difficult to follow, but indicate they were supposed to be issued on the date of hire.
Pomeroy also sent me a requirement to call a phone number to apply for a "WOTC' tax credit". I assume for the company, No company I've ever worked for has required anything like this.
I was employed over the July 4th holiday. When I inquired about holiday pay I was promptly told contractors don't get holiday pay and my Pomeroy rep sent me my signature on the forms I had signed to take the job to show me that I understood that at the time of hire. I simply had asked a question and got the 'book thrown at me'. Geez.
I don't think my resource rep at Pomeroy was very bright as evidenced from some of her communications via email.
The first person at Pomeroy who snagged me into the job assured me that Pomeroy would be able to place me on another job as soon as this one at Fifth Third was ended but after it has now ended they aren't so sure.
I had wanted to work for Pomeroy since 1996 but I see now that it is a very different company that what it once was.
Friends had told me that both Pomeroy and Fifth Third were poor companies to work for who treat their employees less than favorably.
I will have to agree. – less
