What is AutoBase Inc. sick leave policy? How many sick days do you get per year?
Sick leave is a joke here. You get no PTO for a full year. Then for the next two years you get only 5 days each year. That includes sick days. If you’re sick you can either use one of your 5 PTO days or just not get paid at all. Also if no one is willing to cover your shift for 16 hours then you’re forced to come into work even with an emergency or when sick.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make AutoBase Inc. a better place to work?
Organize the trucks better than what they are now, place 2 wheel cart cone holders in trucks, keep tools and batteries for tools maintained all the time, have safety training every 2 months,
There are times that you get dispatched to an event extending your normal 8hr day-but you will get compensated. Some operations run M-F and some go all 7 days-you may work weekend or evenings.
You work about 10 hours a day but get paid for 8.5 unless you wash truck or have to get maintenance done then it's more then 10 but you still get paid 8.5
Hours vary by city. You’re expected to show up a half hour early everyday (without being paid) to check your truck. Half of the trucks don’t work right, some no A/C, some busted tires, some have a death wobble and you’re still expected to drive them all day. You’re even made to do maintenance on the trucks without extra pay like changing the tires and batteries and lights on the board. Then you head out on the road, where procedurally you’re trained one way but will get yelled at for doing that you were trained to do. Only good thing is police and fire and medical will all thank you for what you do, but they still complain about how we are limited because the owners want to act like first responders yet get mad when drivers use the shoulders, turnarounds, or follow the police when they are heading to a scene.
