Unfortunately, the environment of this employer has changed drastically in the almost 4 yrs. I have been employed there. I started in the Receiving Department. There has been turnovers of 2 Operations Managers, 3 managers and a constant hiring in warehouse employees.
There is no morale and no respect given to workers. Co-workers who have been employed for a longer period, are those I can relate to because of the current environment. However, I am an easy-going and hard working man who needs to make a living to provide for my family. I keep a positive, upbeat attitude and do my job with great diligence although it is quite uncomfortable. I get along with everyone & am proud of the job I was hired to do. However, I was sent over to the Shipping Department & my hours have drastically changed. My previous hours were 8am - 5pm, working overtime when necessary. As of the past couple of weeks, my hours are 11am - ?...depending on the day. Mondays it appears there are a shortage of employees due to the fact they call in. In order to get the job done, an average time to leave is between 9pm -11pm (I have yet to work until 11pm but others have) I continue to work for this employee because of my work ethic & diligence. There is no advancement & the limit is $14.00/hr. I make currently $12.75/hr, started at $11.00/hr. I have learned that sometimes employees are just a number & not appreciated or given "a pat on the back" for a job well done.
The most enjoyable part of my work day is lunch when I call & speak with my wife who gives me a vote of confidence & encouragement.
