A easy job, but not enough compensation for the work.
Steam Technician (Former Employee) – Wichita, KS – September 11, 2017
Life at Stanley Steemer has taught me that even when you go into 10-12 hour work days at a minimum wage salary that it's not all that it's cracked up to be. Part of me would rather go back to working at McDonald's simply because there is some sort of advancement.
There? You have to basically hope on the daily you have good paying routes so you can HOPEFULLY make your Commission percentage increase. Because if you don't? You're being stuck with 9$ an hour. Doing pure labor the entirety of the job.
The management isn't too bad in terms of "helping" you. But when it comes down to the wire, it comes down to add-on and if you can't get people to do that? You're stuck with 9$ an hour. So again, definitely not a "career" unless you can rub some people the right way. (the office staff or the owner) so you can get the best routes.
The people themselves though, the coworkers, they are good people all stuck in the same boat. Even though most of them just use this as a time killer more than ACTUALLY needing the income. Creating a bit of...turmoil between those of us that actually DO need it.
The time inbetween jobs
Management shows favortism, work hours are not compensated.
