Overall working for Unicco was a good learning experience. They had deadlines to meet and were constintely having to revise work because of funding.
Night Supervisor (Former Employee) – Hartford, CT – August 18, 2012
I would arrive 15-20 mins early and organize supplies my people would need for daily preformance and set out their scheduled duties for daily work and special assisgnments. I would then check to see if any special requests or complaints had come in to the office. If I needed extra sepecial service workers, I would then meet with my superior and acquire extra help. I would call all of my assistants and explain our goals for the day. It would then be time to walk the areas, check for damages and how workers were performing their duties. I would give them praise or pointers depending on the circumstance. I would go back to office and write up any discrepencies that presented on my walk thru the buildings and issue work orders to the correct departments. I would also do inventories, order supplies, correspond throughout the evening with my superior.
I learned how to command a large group of people and get them to preform to the best of their abilities, and know when to apply pressure to get the job done and how to read the people for whom I was responsible.
I enjoyed the staff I worked with,, the hardest part was having to write them up for incidents that would then go to their union stewart, my boss, and their union.
I was treated above average by my workers, and they were all disappointed when I left.
for different occasions i would allow holiday parties, give out extra desserts or salads that the cafeteria would have left over.
staff kept getting cut shorter and shorter with more work to be done, and less time to accomplish it in.
