Production Side Is Not So Fun
Typesetter (Current Employee) – Nashville, TN – April 3, 2017
I was super excited when I got hired two months ago, and management seemed ready to get me started and train me the proper way of being their typesetter. However, the person who is training me has not taught anybody in a long while. Even with suggestions to help the person and myself, I feel like I get knocked aside like my opinion wasn't even considered or I was given the 'we don't have time for that'.
I've been given negative feedback with little encouragement. I honestly believe that the person would rather handle all the projects themself rather than hire a new person. The person expects years of experience in being detail oriented shoved into a few months. Despite the 'come ask us questions', I've always felt like I was going to be attacked and shot down.
While there's no visible division within the production side, it's easy to feel it when certain topics come up.
If the 'main group' doesn't have direct contact with you on a daily basis, don't bother being asked if you want anything from X-place for lunch.
I have no opinion on the corporate side of this company. They are in a different building.
