Their HR is a mess, furloughing new hires...no job security...terrible benefits
Equipment Manager (Current Employee) – Cheyney, PA – December 13, 2016
I was hired and started on Halloween for a full time position. Found out in the first week of December that I will be furloughed and my last week of work is on the first week of January. I even asked before I was hired if I should have any concerns of losing my job and was told no. They are making budget cuts/furloughed all around, I wouldn't suggest taking a position here. Especially if you were like me and had other job offers, those offers expired and now I'm on the job market again.
I will say that my fellow colleagues are nice people and it's a good working environment with them. The issue is that the environment is tainted because any day you could be a furlough.
The benefits, particularly health care benefits are not that great. I have to wait 6 months before I'm covered for vision/dental/prescriptions, be mindful of that.
If you are coming from out-of-state, this is a union position. My job is being given to another employee who was furloughed before I accepted my position. That employee had seniority, so the union will screw you. Oh and you'll be paying union dues so you're paying them to screw you over.
