counter-productive workplace atmosphere
Head Electronics Testing Dept (Former Employee), Utica, MIMay 30, 2014
Pros: friendly co-workers, independent work, customer interaction
Cons: no benefits, poor clock-in system, wasteful atmosphere
Testing, pricing, light repair, displays, and on floor customer assistance all performed almost entirely and exclusively by myself. I enjoyed my coworkers and my department, but there was no room for growth, and the income wasn't reflective of my work. Customers found me friendly and helpful.
Hardest part of the job was being threatened by certain members – more... of management unfairly and without reason. – less
