customer service, sales support (Former Employee) – St. Petersburg, FL – August 27, 2018
I was actually hired by a sub company called carreer pathfinders, they were really awesome but there is a huge disconnect with corporate. some school locations were in really bad areas and some of the staff at said locations were not nice to prospective students.
There is a great deal of unethical treatment of students and staff, within a hostile work environment, favoritism, nepotism, unrealistic expectations all taking place in a run down dilapidated building.
The school is being run by two expunged cops that are bullies who have very little experience in how to run a school; they're only doing what they know, bully people. When I went to HR for harassment, I became a target followed by retaliation and I will be pursuing a case against this organization. I am really surprised that the parent company, Werner Enterprises, has allowed this activity to continue, especially in this day and time when dignity and respect should be the minimum cost for admission.
They are charging students a premium price for CDL training and when they graduate, they have a restriction on their license, they can only drive automatics.
I lost a job over a minor disagreement. I'll miss it, but I am creative enough to keep going, and self driven in ways that I amaze myself. My students express their disappointment when advancing to the next level in this driving course. I embrace new round of students on a weekly basis.
