    I have been working at Focus: HOPE (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are no pros at all

    Cons

    Work us like slaves, doesn't receive all breaks, have a lot of shutdowns, like 3 months at a time with no pay. We do not receive all the holiday pay days that is in the handbook. They decide at the last minute if we are going to get holiday pay or not. We never know what time we get off of work, works 14-16 hours a day. The employees that work in the office receives a Christmas bonus but the employees that work in the plant doesn't. You will get penalized or fired if you are sick or in the hospital. You can not use a doctors excuse, you will be penalized& get fired!!! They will not accept a doctors excuse, and they can see that you are sick, you will still get penalized or fired, because of point system. and we only get 7 points.

    Advice to Management

    Focus Hope should be ashamed of themselves the way they treat the assemblers. I know Martin Luther King & Rosa Parks are rolling over in their graves.

    It is important to focus on the people served by an organization like Focus: HOPE but it is just as important to focus on the people within the organization. Treat employees fairly (in pay, benefits, etc.), with respect and provide a better level of transparency.
