When you interview at Hopedale, everything seems really charming and small town and quaint. Everyone is friendly and warm.
But after a few months of working there I was being called off of work half an hour after arriving (after driving in about 40 minutes from Peoria). They didn't let you advertise to get more business in, but then also refused to advertise for you.
Management is weird and clique-y and mildly incestuous. It's bitter, ugly, small town politics at its worst.
Everyone uses the excuse of being "just the messenger" and orders were always coming from "above" and that's why you were getting shafted. But you could never take your complaints any higher up the ladder.
The whole organization is built to shoot itself in the foot and that is exactly what it does at every turn.
I was also pushed to full time hours, but not given the health benefits that were supposed to come with that. When I addressed the matter with management, they said they had bumped me back to PRN hours. But I had received no notification of this change in hours and was still appearing as scheduled for 40 hours a week in the system.
After I'd left, I emailed management that I would be bringing in my tag, shirts, and other misc items. I got no acknowledgement and instead of waiting for me to arrive with their things, they gave all of my personal belongings/paperwork/pay stubs/etc. to a coworker who was instructed to deliver them to my home WITHOUT my permission
They are unprofessional in the most repugnant of ways and you ARE expendable here.
