I have been working at NCR as a contractor (less than an year)Pros
the pay is okay, and the hours are nice for people that have young children.Cons
NCR seems to only be hiring temps. There being 2 temp companies to chose from, management 99% of the time will only hire from P.S. partners. (the one that has NO benefits I.E. holiday pay. You are told that after 6 months NCR can hire you if you continue to work hard and stand above the rest. (not true) This is a temp job is to pay bills while you NEED to continue to send out resumes to other employers. Don't be tricked into staying for prolonged periods time hoping you will be employed with the GREAT benefits NCR full time gets. NCR uses temps to keep labor costs down. Which means your chances of full time employment are 1 in 100. which = 2 years or more of temp service. I am not saying this because I have not been hired full time after 6 months, but a warning because MANY hard working temps have been here for well over a year bordering 2 years and there seems to be no hope or foreseeable Full time employment for them.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Be more upfront with your Temp hires. Let them know that 95% get terminated or leave before getting hired on full time and if you are to be selected to be a full time employee that you will most likely be waiting for over 2 years while not receiving any benefits. Be more understanding with people that are seeking other employment from other companies, benefits are important (anyone and everyone should understand that fact). Accept a 2 week notice as a 2 week notice not a 24 hr. lockout termination. I will expect to work the whole 2 weeks after I give notice.
lastly I leave management a question to ponder...
Sick time a + or -?
Temps with no sick time most of which are working and living paycheck to paycheck.
what does a person like this do when they are ill? ( they work sick till they just cant take the illness any longer)
what happens to their coworkers? (they get sick and miss work)
what happens to production when an illness floats threw the area?Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookDisapproves of CEO
