I felt like chattel-- def. 1)tangible property 2) a slave
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Santa Barbara, CA – September 5, 2018
After coming onboard as a temporary employee and exceeding every expectation in my CSR role for 3.5 months.... the company released me THE VERY WEEK my review was to take place to become permanent...AND THEN had the nerve to ask me back the following month at the lower pay rate. I was warned by fellow employees, but had never before felt disregarded by a faceless corporation. I got the impression that the people with tenure were happy working there, and my immediate manager(who was great)said my contract was dropped for their quarterly report's bottom line and that he was not included or happy about the decision...but I really felt devalued.
This position is HIGHLY STRESSFUL inherently, as it is on the front lines, dealing directly with patients who lack proper O2 concentrations in their blood and brains, or their closest loved ones who are desperately seeking their comfort and ability to breathe through Inogen's equipment.
friendly co-workers; clean/safe work environment; great products
