When I was called back for an interview, I was truly happy. I've heard good things about the opportunities of putting more money into your wallet. If you are coming from a minimum wage job, it is definitely a step up. However, after evaluating my experience, one should question if it is truly worth it to leave their former job.
Upon my interview ending, I was hired in for sales to start a training. I then learned how inconsistent and unorganized the place can be:
1. I received a call the Friday before training that I will be moved to a different schedule last minute.
2. Once in the training, EVERYONE found that they were being moved to a department other than sales and would now be training for sales support.
3. In nesting, our trainer was overworked and his SME had to take over and half of our pay was almost messed up.
1. After becoming employed I found that often times:
2. Bonuses promised may not be given,
3. the bonus structure is VERY inconsistent,
pay checks are often shortened or they fail to tax you at the
proper time and the next check has lots more taken out
4. the only raise is a promotion - IF YOU'RE FRIENDS WITH
SOMEONE IN MANAGEMENT. There's a woman who has been
with the company 2-3 years, always watches teams without being
paid that amount. EVERY TIME, EVERY interview, she is looked
5. Many individuals in management have had relations with their
6. Manage is not always appropriate whether it be harassment - refer to a recent lawsuit settlement in LA, unreported incidents, Management not getting along thus managing unprofessionally, relationships (which i never got into caring BUT their relationships effected others - and unfair practices.
***if you don't like change, this is not the job for you. Some changes aren't bad but some did effect us negatively.
****your schedule is subject to change every three months regardless of your accepting it or not
***if you go to school, they give you a hard time,
***you are not always guaranteed your 40 hours a week if staffing is too high
***very difficult for them to respect their employees' personal lives or need. They put the company first and can be insensitive towards those who keep it going.
**They'll let everything slide under the rug until they want you out of the company - then for the smallest reason, your job could be gone.
I honestly, feel that funds are often misused, being that often, a paycheck is shortened often - and this is the ONLY consistent thing.
I think their clients such as Directv as well as the executive team may not always be aware of these practices. Or they may be - I wish there were some major changes because THIS COMPANY TRULY HAS POTENTIAL TO BE A GOOD COMPANY TO WORK FOR.
However, I do NOT recommend anyone works here in the current conditions. they are in the middle of a merger with another company Symbio and there were already major changes when their client directv, was bought out by at&t so imagine the jist of the environment being that we are currently in the middle of our vending company merging?
