    They say work hard and you will move up in the company but they hire outside the department every time.

    Assistant Manager Operations (Current Employee) Maryland Heights, MO

    ProsGood employee recognition, poor management acknowledgment.

    ConsDoesn't promote from within. They continue to raise the bar which removes the opportunity for employees in the department to meeting the qualification for senior positions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize those whom have continued to improve themselves and allow them the opportunity to grow within the company. When interviewing for Senior management positions, the interviewers should be someone not personally involved in the process. This is the only way to guarantee a fair and unbiased interview.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not what I thought

    Employment Counselor (Current Employee)

    ProsEnjoy helping others "see" what they are capable of doing in a career. It's really up to the person with the tools available at WFS helping in the background...difficult for people to "see" that.
    My co-workers are great and dedicated...they care
    I work only a few miles away from home, less traffic.

    ConsMicro-managing done to the nth degree from when do I go to lunch to bathroom
    Mgmt is done through threats and demanding signatures on responsibilities that I must agree to, but not hold themselves up to the same.
    Mgmt does not allow employees to grow into what they might be capable of.
    The atmosphere is highly political...people who abuse the system benefit while those who do not, slip through the cracks.
    We as employees are kept from demanding accountability with customers.
    Any decision by 'upper' mgmt seems to be done on a 'whim', politically speaking, as opposed to what is best.
    One mission statement is to give customers what they "want" as opposed to what they might "need".
    Any corrections to operations are merely a knee-jerk reaction and not thought out carefully as to what the results might be before implementation...ends up being merely a band-aid.
    Mgmt, as well as employees, is simply a swinging door. Only problem is mgmt decides to change things up to suit their desires, finds out it doesn't work quite like they thought, reverse it back to the way it was...no thinking apparently.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEase up on the threats...allow employees to 'think'...demand accountability with customers, expect it from employees...you can evaluate operations without micro-managing...stop giving praise in memorized words that are used simply to backup the current little 'jingle' you have going at the time - just tell the employee what a good job they did and mean it (or don't say anything).

    Career Counselor (Former Employee) Fort Worth, TX

    Consmicro-managed to the minute, under paid, management with no training

    Advice to Senior Managementpay for professionals and that is what you will get

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