    Pros

    Good Pay, bonus every year, growing in technology. Company car, gas card, training, spend company money for any reason management does not mind as long as you use the reason that it is for a customer.

    Cons

    Focus is more on like than respect, old school mentality, revolving door for managers coming and going, brand new HR department all HR leaders left the company, tells you something about company and focus on people. Safety culture far behind, a lot of lip service, The Swiss will come take over leadership operations in two years. Terrible language used at all times. If you are an A hole this is the perfect company for you. Terrible leaders. Leadership training needed ASAP, at all levels especially the management level.

    Advice to Management

    build people oriented HR department. Focus on retaining leadership. focus on respect on all levels. get rid of terrible language used in the workplace and in meetings.

    Pros

    *Left on good terms*
    40 Hours guaranteed
    Most employees fun to be around
    Decent Overtime when you want it.

    Cons

    Supervisors lack knowledge, they push extra projects on you and don't show you how to do them so you get held accountable for any problems.

    No appreciation for special projects done.

    Upper management does not care about you, they will tell you to do something and when you do it yell at you.

    When brought in through a temporary agency you are told that you will be hired in within 3 months. This is a LIE - I had to seek other employment due to no health benefits for 8 months while waiting.

    Have to be careful of certain co-workers who will gang up on you, and cause a hostile work environment.

    Supervisors will 'mandate' you to over time when you shouldn't be due to their based on seniority system and when you bring the mistake to their attention they will make you work it or face attendance issues.

    Attendance policy is terrible, you could be leaving work to seek medical attention because you are so sick and you will still face points based on their terrible attendance policy even if you provide documentation.

    Upper management outside of the Call Center do not care how the manager of the call center treats the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Schindler needs to start holding the manager and supervisors accountable for their actions and how they treat the employees. If you want good results for your business do not treat employees like pieces of crap and like they do not matter. Do not lie to those you are bringing into the position saying they will be getting hired in within 3 months when you guys have no intention of doing so.
