Drop it Like it's HOTMay 25, 2023 - Finance in Addison, TXRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Great benefits and immediate first full month of employment.
Like the song says "drop it like its hot" and that's what they do! Without any notice or opportunity to correct any mistakes, known or unknown. Terminated for "performance" which no one ever eluded to any issues or concerns. Uncovered several mistakes by other employees. Thinking you're doing right by telling someone about the mistake can get you terminated. Acting to protect the integrity of the company by NOT overlooking safety issues will get you terminated. Keeping up with workload and multiple responsibilities in addition to the learning curve is not granted any more time than 80-89 days. That way the company can terminate you within the 90 day clause without any legal action. Absolutely no dedication in this company except for the ones there for many years, can't lay them off for fear of a lawsuit. They dump all the heavy workload on the new employees at every angle just to see if a person can tolerate that behavior. Document, document, document so that you're covered if they come at your for performance issues. Be sure you print off that documentation because you may need it.Continue reading

Bad managementApr 20, 2023 - Front End Loader in Castle Rock, CORecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Good batch man and hr
They will fire you for almost anything you never know if today will be your last day but if you kiss butt and make nice with the right people maybe you'll be a teacher's pet but I wouldn't count on it honestly. It pays okay but job security is not there and that is what's important too me and too a lot of people trying to provide for there familiesContinue reading

Depends on where you areApr 27, 2023 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
*Benefits are great, *Company at a corporate level is interested in retention, *Maternity and paternity leave offered, *Tuition assistance for continuing education, *Some corporate positions are remote-eligible
*Management at the site-level has ZERO interest in employee retention, rapidly going through numerous people in the same positions without change, *Pay is often far under market, *Site-level personnel are expected to work increasingly long hours are made to work well outside of their job descriptions, *Bonuses and raises are seldom at promised levels and are sometimes cancelled for certain employees altogether, *Safety at the site-level is a priority only when an issue arises, then it's the employee's fault for not taking more precautions, *Regional and Site-Level Management incentivizes employees to not report injuries, *Site-level personnel will often have offered perks and benefits revoked without notice and without reason, *Certain people in certain positions are allowed company vehicles, but just because your predecessor had one and everyone else with your job title has one doesn't mean you get one too. *Don't accept anybody's word on any subject, always get everything in writing. *Job descriptions and interview answers have little resemblance to the actual position responsibilities.Continue reading

Decent Local EmployerApr 21, 2023 - Cement Technician in Bloomsdale, MORecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Good people, good culture. Health insurance, 401k, and such aren't bad. Starting with prorated vacation makes it easier to take the chance and try the job out. Company does provide quite a few things that make life nicer, from specialty tools to keurig coffee.
Pay could be better, schedule could be better. Not a lot of room for advancement and the personal role advancement is tedious and includes signing up for classes that may only be given a few times a year and conflict with your schedule, although lower level management typically does what they can to help.

Used to be good.Apr 9, 2023 - Material Handler in Devils Slide, UTRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
It has Flexible time off.
Bad management who won't work with you. (My way or highway mentality) Low wages for what is competitive now a days. They promise a steady schedule but will change it all the time. Sometimes weekly. Management will only fix things that when it starts to inconvenience them and not when the problems starts and will then blame you for things when you told them it would cause a problem. They are starting to have a high turnover rate because of a lot of these issues.Continue reading

Good CompanyApr 10, 2023 - DispatcherRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Good Company to work for. Good healthcare program and 401K. You get holidays off and with the floating days plus your vacation time.
Lack of ambition for the Houston region. Eventually it was bought out.

Toxic work environmentMar 9, 2023 - Anonymous Employee in Denver, CORecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Good benefits including 401k, health insurance. Compensation was ok, but just know if you’re salary that you will be expected to work at least 50 hours a week without overtime.
Very little diversity in the workplace, especially among management. They are always short staffed in every department, and had a difficult time keeping new employees. The amount of training received was very minimal and they expect a lot out of new employees. High stress environment and management does not back employees at all with any customer issues. Management never addressed issues that brought up and always had an excuse for issues.
