    Pros

    Clean building - thanks to the hard working immigrants who receive little compensation aside from being constantly reminded how their French is not getting any better. Oh yes...there is free parking.

    Cons

    From my initial interview it didn`t look promising. The director of the department who interviewed me... cared little about my goals or accomplishments & even less about initiatives I had taken to contribute in the past. It appeared his only concern was that I had an accent and insisted on knowing what it was? My concerns were justified as a cleaner; finishing shift, was acknowledged by my interviewer as he was passing by. I expected him to ask how it went, or whether all was completed. "Are you speaking more French " was all I heard ... simply unbelievable! It would prove to be the general attitude of the entire administration. Another small minded very "trying place of employment."

    Advice to Management

    Huge difference in protecting a culture to nitpicking a non issue simply because it has always worked. A condescending attitude will never elevate you as managers. Get over the " Inferiority Complex," communicate... and start managing!
