Stressful job with no advancement opportunities or raises
Order Entry/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Reno, NV – May 2, 2018
Job is consistently stressful, with no advancement, raises, or promotions in sight. This used to be a great place to work, but since the buyout, all our perks have been taken away. The only good thing is if you've made it past the five-year mark, you have 200 hours of vacation along with one week of sick pay. There is always a reason why you have not done your job well enough to get a raise. If you don't know people, you won't go anywhere. I worked my tail off to get a degree while working here full time and after graduation, was told that degrees really don't make a difference, when five years ago I was told that a degree would push me into management. You are constantly asked to do more work and learn more new processes without any compensation. Salary employees make up the majority of the company, and are able to work from home and have other small perks like 4 hours of time per day they can use to leave work early or come in late without using sick or vacation time, but hourly employees have to clock in and out and don't have those options. It is discouraging to come in to work every day and work with people who don't have the same restrictions you do. Management has no idea what you do and therefore year-end reviews make no sense because they don't know what they are talking about when looking at what you have done throughout the year. Healthcare has increased yearly and I'm paying out of pocket more every year when I never had to before. Management says they promote hiring from within but then hire from outside.
Vacation, on-site cafeteria and gym
No promoting from within unless you know someone, no raises, healthcare insurance is horrible, management out of touch
