I worked at RL Canning

Pros

The administrative staff is usually pretty friendly and kind on the phone. This seems to be the only bright area in the entire company.

Cons

The owner and managing partner of the company seems to be more interested in rumors and false allegations instead of taking the words of her employees as actual fact. The way she attempts to interject herself into the personal lives of the employees is really inappropriate. Any opportunities for advancement based solely on job performance is non-existent. No performance reviews usually equates to no bonuses. Which also supports their record of empty promises given at the beginning of employment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees and management staff more to accurately gauge what's really going on within your company instead of brown-nosing the client who may have shady intentions in order to get more business.

    I worked at RL Canning as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    The paycheck always cleared. Wasn't always correct, but it cleared.

    Cons

    Pay schedule doesn't meet state law in IL or CO.
    RL is just a figure head to the company to allow them minority status for biding contracts.
    They liked to tell you that your a salary employee, but require you to "punch in" and "punch out". This also violates labor law.
    They don't allow paid overtime, require overtime to be converted to "Comp" time, in violation of state labor laws.
    Will edit time cards from paid overtime to "comp" time with no notice, also in violation of labor laws.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The reality is that most of the employees on the contract I was on are only there because they needed a job at the time and leave as soon as possible once a better position is found. As others have said in they're reviews it is unlikely to change because the cause is due to "Senior Management" (I do use that term loosely), but once the economy does turn around this company is going to crash and burn due to the employees running away as quickly as possable.

    I have been working at RL Canning full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Managing partners are open to suggestions to help move the company forward
    Rewarded for success through compensation and other perks
    Great benefits (medical including dental and vision, PTO, matching 401K, etc.)
    Company is growing so fast there is a lot of room for individual growth through promotion
    Good communication throughout the company

    Cons

    Not always a lot of new positions available at different client locations
    Most positions are in and around Chicago only

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep rewarding your employees for their hard work when they deserve it. That kind of recognistion goes a long way.
