  1.  

    Helpful management and a good opportunity

    Former Employee - Temp  in  Edison, NJ
    Former Employee - Temp in Edison, NJ

    Pros

    Flexibility, overtime (if hourly), welcoming management and colleagues.

    Cons

    There wasn't much in terms of opportunities while I was there, or at least I wasn't made aware of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe there should be more in terms of morale boosting and compensation incentives to increase productivity.

    Pros

    I believe MOL Japan is a very loyal and fair organization to work for. Very up front in letting its employees know how the company is doing as a whole. I believe they truly want to do right by its employees. MOL Japan values family and loyalty.

    Cons

    MOL America is known to have very bold unfair hiring and promoting practices within their North America customer service division. This leaves most employees fearful of losing their jobs, While others who have been hired and promoted through these ill gotten practices never have to face those types of fears.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advise to MOL Japan and it's chief officers would be to implement a process where you can hear directly from the employees. I can assure you have no idea of the type of discrimination that threatens your company, or the management that tarnishes the loyal and fair image of MOL. My score is based on my disappointment of effective and fair management.
