Advice to Management
Simplify work and get rid of bad apples.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ingenia Polymers in July 2014.
Standard flare, set up through GoJohnson, Small company if that is what you want. Was kept waiting in the warehouse a good 45 min after the scheduled appointment time before they finally started the interview process even though I talked to one lady in the HR about 10 minutes after the interview time and the extension to the lady I had the interview with didn't answer. I showed up 15-30 minutes before the interview. Wasn't even shown the units I would be working with.
Took their standard flare of testing, interviewed with the facility manager, was called with the offer later that day with starting $20/hr but no benefits until some months after the hire date.
Declined offer as I went through Lee College's Process Technology to work in an actual process and their offer wage is significantly below normal starting operator pay.
Reasons for Declining
Starting wage was $20/hr for an operator, the research I've done is that the average starting operator pay is $24-$28/hr and that is with no benefits starting off for some months. Was also kept waiting 30 minutes or longer in their what appeared to be their shipping and receiving even though told a lady who worked in their HR I am waiting for the interview and was left waiting still for 20-30 minutes. Unprofessional imo.
