Childish work
Operator (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHJune 19, 2017
Spineless management. High school drama between employees. Trainer would say you're doing a good job then tell the manager something different. Definitely don't question why they do something a certain way because you have prior experience.

As long as you suck up you'll be golden.
Pros
Great pay
Cons
Back stabbers

Company is great - Department managers are not.
You receive bonuses once a year, around March.
ADP system is terrible.
Employees within Buckeye are great. The managers on the other hand are not.
