Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Pay is good, co-workers are great, working on your own is nice, getting to be outside of an office job

Cons

micro-management is clueless, people with degrees hired from other companys that have never done your job tell you what a poor performer you are, tell you push overpriced additional product on people (penetration performance) to improve.

Advice to Management

People will buy water period, work on marketing and putting your products and people in the right position or you competitors will.

    Very long hours with an incredible work load.

    Treat your employees better. Terrible moral, everyone there is unhappy but the days are so long there isn't enough time to find a better gig.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    As an hourly employee the money was competitive. The people, minus a few bad seeds, were nice. Free bottled water daily and sometimes even more. Clean work environment.

    Cons

    Not a very good work/like balances in some departments, especially in the summer. They do not like it when you can't work overtime every single day and let you know it. They use selective enforcement to deal with their policies and procedures meaning if they don't like you and you break a policy you are gone or eventually written out. If they do like you and you break a policy you are okay for the most part, you might get written up but not fired like the one they didn't like or a temp worker. This happened NUMEROUS times. HR is at the whim of the site Director and even though they know something is wrong will do whatever he/she wants most of the time, or twist the policies to work in their favor.

    Advice to Management

    Stop showing favoritism and mingling with the hourly employee's in off hours. Stop using selective enforcement to punish people, be more consistent in your management. They are VERY inconsistent. Everyone in the same department should have the same rules, not different rules applied to different people, etc. You certainly shouldn't decide to terminate one person or the next over a policy or procedure that others are not being terminated over or even being talked too. This happened numerous times.
