I have worked at Imagine for 1 year now. I have done everything right as an employee, minus some mistakes as I learned the job and more about what was expected of me. I showed up on time with a good attitude, owned up to my mistakes and fixed them, I stayed late on some occasions to help out. Twice, I got hurt doing their work and only missed 1 day of work. To start, I felt that my pay was fair and I felt like the performance I had as an employee granted a far better pay raise than I got. Apparently, they felt that only an extra thirty cents an hour after all of that was “fair”. I heard as much from other employees but I trusted my management to do what was fair and they hung me out to dry. In addition, afternoon dispatch was poorly run and completely in disarray, leading me to be forced to work extra hours due to the complete lack of organizational skills. This was also because the workload was not evenly distributed. I was given additional tasks at the end of my work day and continually had to clean up after others laziness. Example given, parking vehicles that others failed to park themselves due to laziness, Load LTL trucks on my own, etc. Also observed was the continual “playing of favorites” by shipping management. This was exhibited by others being able to stand idle while I worked and certain individuals being seemingly exempt from the uniform and attendance policy. After all of this, there was no negotiation about the “pay raise” and a multi million dollar corporation will not even consider giving good employees even so much as a fifty cent pay raise.
Good work/life balance
