    Working safely at the office during the Covid 19 pandemic

    Pros

    I was uncertain, like most people, about returning to an office when Shelter in Place lifted. I was not sure what to expect. I am happy to say,, management made a really great effort to ensure a safe work environment for the employees working on site. Many precautions have been put in place like mandatory masks at work, workstations spread out, temperature checks when entering the building, hand sanitizer everywhere, single use bathrooms and nightly disinfection of the office. The company is supportive of working remotely as the situation permits. Also, it is really great to see both management and employees modelling safe behavior by wearing masks at all times, keeping safe distances and using Teams for meetings whenever possible. It makes it feel like safety is a team effort at work.

    Cons

    The office is located where it is not so pleasant to walk outside

    Great Starter Company

    Pros

    - Open to minimal experienced applicators, good for people straight out of college. - Average overall kindness from other employees. Some are a little jaded but overall nice. - Really great learning company, if you seek out more education you can find it. They are open to teaching you.

    Cons

    - Very low pay - Job titles really split up the responsibilities so you learn your job quickly and easily. - Lots of down time and a few moments of panic. - Some managers are mean and judge mental. Upper management is disconnected from the employees and don’t treat us the nicest... - No one likes to take blame for anything. Even if it’s merchandise or production or tech’s fault they always redirect blame. Just own up on your mistake and don’t do it again, and don’t jump down someone’s throat for a simple mistake.
