    Unfair treatment of employees

    CNA I (Former Employee)
    Charlotte, NC

    ProsA large system that can offer good benefits and a decent work/life balance. The benefits that are offered are very comprehensive.

    ConsWill fire employees they deem to be a "threat" to the organization. Require employees to report for duty when there are adverse weather events. Senior management is a wild boar- they do whatever they want to do without regards to the employees. They try to trick employees into thinkiing something is good when it really isn't.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWork with employees to fix problems, not fire them and create more problems.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Only Getting Worse! Budget Cuts!

    Support Staff (Current Employee)
    Shelby, NC

    ProsSome decent benefits and personal growth.

    ConsWorked in this organization for over 9 years, hourly pay rate less than nine dollars. The only real perks you have are your healthcare insurance, if you can afford it. Good thing I have a spouse and a supportive family or I might be living under a bridge! Management likes to tell you how "excellent" your work is, but only if they need you to do "MORE WORK" while they are steady cutting your hours. I guess they think hourly employees are too stupid to see what's going on!

    Advice to Senior ManagementPut your money where your mouth is! You might find Commitment, Teamwork and Integrity and a lot less turn over! This is a huge organization surely we can come up with a better rate of pay for support staff. Or at least stop flexing hours especially for part time staff working less 30 hours. I feel like I'm paying you to work here....Do the math!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
