Sweat Shop for Exempt staff
Senior Disability Representative (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – August 30, 2018
As an exempt employee, we were informed that we were required to work a minimum of 8-10 hours of OT per week if we wanted to receive a decent review (including coming in at least one day each weekend). Also, any time off that was not approved at least 24 hours in advance was considered a "call out" and we were only allowed 4 of those per year - doesn't matter if you had a serious illness or physically couldn't get to work due to bad weather. However, it as hard to get PTO approved as they had to maintain certain staffing levels so in many cases, you had to call out just to go to a doctor's appointment. Over half of the staff left within the first six months. Sweat shop environment where you had no authority to set your own schedule, even when to take lunch. Most of the time you spent working on other people's work and had to work the required OT just to be able to get your required work done.
Unprofessional, lack of reasonable policies, required OT.
