Worst place to work
Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Bloomfield CTNovember 6, 2018
The company itself is horrible, and the “shift supervisor” position is worse. They aren’t looking for a manager, but an enforcer. They want someone to blindly follow all their rules without question. They are looking for someone to crack the whip on all their minimum wage associates. The second you start to think on your own or deviate from their ‘rules,’ you are gone. If you are a person who likes to think on your own and apply logic to a situation, this is not the job for you. If you can take orders and then repeat them to people you will excel here. The worst part about this company is that they do not care about their employees one bit. They can replace a minimum wage employee easily. Which explains the huge rate of turnover.
Pros
Easy hours
Cons
Low pay, horrible upper management
