I saw that they were hiring and looking for seasonal team members so I decided to apply online, after a week or so I hadn’t heard anything so instead I called them to ask about the status of my application, from there I talked to the hiring manager about coming in for an interview the next day.
it was a pretty standard interview maybe 10-15 min long, the interviewer asked me about my availability, why I couldn’t work on certain days, and then asked my scenario based questions.
I felt like the interview went well, I liked my interviewer and I felt that she like me as well, after the interview she told me that they were reviewing a lot of applications and that I would be getting a email in the next few day stating whether I should come in for a second interview or if they decided to go with someone else.

Favoritism. They'd rather promote a new team member than a team member with more experience. Leaders are fake. They'll lie to your face . Try being told they were pushing for you to be promoted and then not getting it. THEN to top it all off you find out they don't actually like you.

If you want to move up in the company you better be prepared to suck up.

Finally had enough after the 2nd rejection and basically being told I would never be promoted. 4.5 years of my life wasted at a company that would never give me a chance to move.

Stop playing favorites. One person can’t do a two person job. Actually help us instead of complaining. Don’t be so critical of every little thing that is done “wrong”. BETTER TRAINING. My training was so bad that the next day I kept forgetting tasks that are minimal and easy. Management be a lot nicer to your team members. We work so hard that we should get appreciation every once in a while.

Unknowledgeable and brand new etls on power trips. No visible HR. TLS that get tms to do their job. Lack of support or appreciation. Lack of compliance to safety rules. Pretty much a sweat shop. Favoritism and cliquish mentality. Basically a bunch of high schoolers running the company.
