Met a couple of great people.
If you truly enjoy managing your people with a negative spin, including management by intimidation, this job is for you, especially if you enjoy being managed that way yourself. If you want your job to be your only life, this job is for you. If you enjoy unreasonable levels of stress and anxiety, this job is for you.Cons
100% negative management style. Management by intimidation. My ex-supervisor had no personal life, so you were expected to work 24/7 with no personal life. Could get calls and txt messages 24/7 with demands for paperwork at ANY time. No continuity of management styles, so your supervisor could request anything they wanted, often more than what was required in other districts or zones. Antiquated software, double-duty data collection for information already being collected/provided. No opportunity to manage with a positive spin of training, coaching, mentoring and people development. Terrible training processes in place. Process & Procedure Manuel extremely out of date - years out of date (many things expected to be done differently now but not updated in the manuel). Nothing done right from a "people management" point of view (at least from my supervisor). Investigations, audits, data collection of information already provided/collected, employee "write-ups" - this was required so much that you had no time left over for actually training, coaching, mentoring & developing your people. Depending on the day, you could be working from 12 to 18 hours. This was a 7 day per week job - as stated before, no allowance for a personal life. Stress and anxiety levels so high that you couldn't easily fall asleep at night and woke up in the morning with your first thoughts while still laying in bed being "what didn't I get done that's going to cause my boss to be calling or txting me?".Advice to ManagementAdvice
Get continuity of what's required in the field management positions in place soon. Eliminate the negative management style used by my ex-supervisor. Three people out of 6, including me, have left my ex-supervisor in a 6 week time frame. Does nobody notice this. I know that 2 more are actively looking to get out from under my ex-supervisor. I left with no job already lined up - something I've always preached that folks should never do! Realize that 99% of your people, in every management position, want (need) to have a personal life (outside of the company). Develop ONE document, not many, that can be done to inspect image, marketing, operations, security, etc. This doesn't need to be done with 3 or 4 different documents that are REQUIRED to be done. Put a system in place that allows the data collected weekly (daily if the system ever becomes a "live" system) to be compiled in-house for monthly, quarterly and annual reports. All the manual collection and manual compilation of this information is an absolute waste of time and dollars.Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
