Forced to work one 40 hours a work week or lose your job!

Will Not Disclose (Current Employee)

ProsVacation, pay, and that is about it

ConsIf you're a hard worker then you get rewarded with more work then told over and over that it is not a 40 hour a week job and you are given hints that if you don't work over 40 hours then you may keep your job. They overload you with the work of two people but expect you to continue to provide superior customer service which is impossible with the work load. A home life balance is some kind of foreign word to this company. Simply they just don't care.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the work load reasonable, the job is stressful enough without telling us over and over this is not a 40 hour a week job and make us feel that if we don't work over 40 hours we will be on warning and potentially lose our job, there are labor laws ------one of these days it will take one brave person to put a stop to this behavior.

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

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    I have been working at OneBeacon


    Pros: Generous PTO Time, Nice group of co-workers. Cons: OneBeacon has had layoffs for 4 or 5 years running now typically around December of each year. No one feels as if the company has… Advice to Senior Management: Work on honesty and integrity. Example: When you increase the average work week and don't pay… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
