Decent, clean, productive place to work
Temp (Former Employee) – Houston – August 15, 2015
The environment at Marker is very relaxed, quiet, and clean, but the nature of the work requires attention to detail and steady processing because it's legal in nature and has time constraints. If you have the personality to enjoy working in an environment as described, working at Marker would be quite ideal. Management does appreciate hard work, but shows very little tolerance for repeated insubordination... some have been quite disruptive from my experience there and they were given the opportunity to acquiesce and return to their duties but refused and were let go for this reason. It is a family owned business and as such does come with all the minuses that pertain and are common to working for a family, but those issues also exist in non-family owned settings... things such as favoritism and nepotism exist everywhere, and would probably exist in a place of business of my own. It seems people have forgotten that when we are given a job we are expected to work in order to earn the income offered and that complaining about it is not going to change the fact that the work still needs to be done timely and correctly. Many workers that came in there came with strange work ethics, I saw and heard much inappropriate and unwarranted negativity from temps and as a temp myself, I found it quite appalling, it made me think, 'what did you think having a job was supposed to be like'???
Relaxed, quiet and clean, and very friendly/kind staff
No pot lucks, not everyone is inclined to being kind or friendly but that's everywhere
