Mid and upper management does not care about workers.
Transload Operator (Former Employee) – Fort Collins, CO – February 20, 2018
The job was good to start with when work was available. We were promised a minimum of 48 hours a week only to be cut to 40 so the company could avoid paying workers overtime, even though the company said the job was paid for in advance with a contract. The company lost the major contract while I was there due to mid and upper management incompetence. At first we were undermanned and workers would run the transload conveyors solo (very dangerous and easy to make mistakes while doing so) then there was no work (sand to be moved) and we would be micro managed and yelled at to not stand around, get out of the office, and do tedious busy work all day (picking up trash, pick up sand on ground, paint, and do maintenance on site and equipment). there were many days of no transloading/sand moving to be done 80 percent of the time so you had to stay out of sight out of mind and do busy work just not to go crazy. There was very little policy for job execution in effect, but when rules were made up overnight, the management would act like they were in effect the entire time and you were the one out of loop. management would never see your hard work done, but if you messed up at all they would throw you under the bus for the smallest infraction.
Okay pay and work/life balance.
Too many to list as stated above.
