Not worth upending your life
Party Chief (Former Employee) – North Canton, OH – March 10, 2015
This is not a company I'd recommend working for. I knew it would be a rough go when I was offered much less money for a supervisory position over my previous job where I was not in a supervisory position, even though I had experience in the oil and gas industry. They wouldn't even meet me in the middle. I never had a flexible schedule, nor was I done anywhere near the same time every day. If there was no work for the day, you had to burn a vacation day or take an unpaid day off. There were days that I spent more time driving to and from jobs than actually doing work. I was constantly at the mercy of numerous project managers (5+). This is a very text and e-mail happy company. You can expect, as I got, e-mails at any time of the day or night. For a company that claims it has family values, there was no work-life balance. For them, it's all about the money. If there's an issue and you go up the chain of command, you can expect to do it numerous times as in my case, it seemed that nobody listened to my concerns the first time. Or the time after that. Or the time after that. We were constantly over our monthly goal and the only recognition we got was a "good job guys" in early morning meetings. There's a reason that 2 people left in my department before I did and one right after I did. I was able to learn more from the guys that I worked with and I enjoyed working with them. We all got along pretty well. But management and how the company is being run leaves a lot left to be desired.
