I worked at Shift4 full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good medical coverage, acceptable salary, wonderful coworkers.

Cons

The owners (who insist on being called "The Founders") have no regard nor respect for employees. They are disposable and are treated as such. Trust and privacy do not exist: All email sent is blind-copied to at least 5 other people for review, phone calls are monitored and recorded, there are between 1 and 3 video cameras above every cubicle, and employees are even timed/monitored for restroom and kitchen visits.

I do not know the actual turnover (a nice way of saying "fired") rate but believe it to be at least 85%. It was psychological to remove employees during the day and then send in an HR lackey to fill a box with personal items. I know many people who would get ill at the sight of the HR people, wondering whose turn it was today.

Advice to Management

Respect is a two-way street.

The person who wrote this needs to get their facts straight. Everything they wrote is exaggerated and wrong. We do have cameras per regulations much like a bank but not to the extent of 3 cameras... More

    "Lack of respect towards employees"

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are decent

    Cons

    The management shows a complete lack of respect for their employees and has issues taking responsibility for their errors in judgement. Promotions tend to stay with those willing to cooperate in assigning fault to lower employees. For this reason, Shift4 has a high turnover of employees and HR staff.

    Shift4 also is very religious company. They make a point to all employees to say Christmas and not Happy Holidays.

    I am only going to dignify one part of this post. We are not a religious company. We just don't believe in all of the PC surrounding the holiday of Christmas.

    "High turnover for a reason"

    Pros

    Benefits are decent but you have to wait past a probation period to get health coverage.

    Cons

    Management inherently distrusts employees and treats staff with the little respect. High turn over at this company for a reason. Look at the number of people who have been with the company for 5+ yrs. Less than 10% of staff. No vacation allowed the first year.

    Completely outdated and wrong. Shift4 offers 40 hours of vacations and 16 hours of vacation after 90 days.
