Very unappreciated

Senior Maintenance Technician (Current Employee)
Millsboro, DE

ProsBenefits are ok, for the eastern shore pay is above average,I really wish I had more positive to say on behalf of the company

ConsVery unappreciative site management, continual expectation to do more with less, people, equipment, even basic tools and supplies. Excessive work schedule due to severe under staff conditions. No chance for advancement no matter how hard you work or schooling you complete. School very difficult due to 55-65 hour work weeks.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease quite treating your most important assets, your people, as liabilities. Give us an opportunity to really show you what we can do, then at least tell us when we have done well and give us the opportunity to advance and grow. Quite the do as I say not as I do attitude, and treat us like adults.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
