I worked at Marquez Brothers International full-time (more than an year)Pros
- Did work with some good people, some who I still keep in touch with every day
- Short commute from home, so that was nice
- There was a sweet breakfast burrito place that came by on Wednesdays
- Made me realize, no matter how much a job I would have in the future sucked, it wouldn't be this badCons
Where to start...
- First the obvious; pay so poor, you would think they were hiring someone with a GED. Maybe.
- Salespeople were mockingly referred to as "Order Takers" by Purchaser. For most part, he was right (that guy is long-gone too)
- Ridiculously rigid work environment; had to wear tie, even though pay was terrible and I never saw any outside people
- Absolutely no flexibility for work hours. Had to be in office at 8:30 and couldn't leave until 5:30, even though my job in reality entailed stuff a monkey could do (and that monkey would be smarter than a lot of people that were there, especially upper management). So basically, I would work maybe two hours and surf the web the other six. Which led to...
- Spying on you at work. Management would spy on how often we were on the internet, and my name came up all the time, because you know, nothing to do
- Lunch policy - toward the end of my time there, we were required to sign up for a lunch hour - either we took lunch at 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM or 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM. They absolutely did not want an empty office, I guess because they thought someone would steal the food from the warehouse or something
- Upper management couldn't care less about their workers - there was no incentive to do any good work
- Absolutely no chance for advancement, unless your last name was Marquez, or you married into the family. They talk about family atmosphere, but the only family I can now think of that resembling would be that or Ariel Castro
- I could go on, but if you don't get the point by now, then congratulations! You would be perfect for this company!Advice to ManagementAdvice
