Pros

The administrative staff is usually pretty friendly and kind on the phone. This seems to be the only bright area in the entire company.

Cons

The owner and managing partner of the company seems to be more interested in rumors and false allegations instead of taking the words of her employees as actual fact. The way she attempts to interject herself into the personal lives of the employees is really inappropriate. Any opportunities for advancement based solely on job performance is non-existent. No performance reviews usually equates to no bonuses. Which also supports their record of empty promises given at the beginning of employment.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees and management staff more to accurately gauge what's really going on within your company instead of brown-nosing the client who may have shady intentions in order to get more business.

    I have been working at RL Canning full-time

    Pros

    Great company morale. They will higher less experienced people and train them. Great way to get your foot in the door in whatever area they provide. They are involved with all employees. Corporate is easy to get a hold of and always quick to respond. Never had anything negative to say about how they treated me. Sees the positive in every employee and really tries to work with them to get them in the position they most fit. Easy to move around the company. They are very flexible with appointments and working from home if needed. Can't really say more in terms of how employees are treated!

    Cons

    Pay is pretty low when you look at the salaries for the same job. Being a contractor will do that so that is expected. Benefits are way too expensive for a family. It is almost half my actual pay for normal health insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more. I've seen some amazing people leave to get paid better elsewhere. You can grow stronger if you hold on to those employees. Also, please offer affordable benefits. Most people I know, cannot afford that. Otherwise, keep operating in the same way when it comes to management communication.

    I worked at RL Canning full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very nice people to work with for the most part. People directly above you usually care about what is happening not only in the day-to-day of the job, but also your life. The CEO's are wonderful people and periodically come into their main office. Good health benefits.

    Cons

    They say you work on a salary, but make you log hourly and go off of hours. A lot of times, management doesn't know what they're doing. They'll have a long term plan in place, but once you ask them what's going on, they have no clue and won't get back to you for quite some time. Not only that, but they sometimes reprimand workers for not knowing something dealing with the job that even management doesn't know. Shoddy system in place for mobile repairs.

    Advice to Management

    Don't reprimand your workers for not knowing something dealing with the job that you don't know yourself. Figure out a system to let certain employees work from home unless you'd prefer to pay someone to sit in an office 8 hours a day and do nothing.
