    It’s ok if you get a good manager

    Oct 6, 2022 - OS1 Operations Specialist in Salem, OR
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I didn’t get one, and she made my trial service a living hell. She lied on my 2nd, 3rd and 4th month assessments, when I reported the issue to the union, they told me to stick with it and hope that it gets better. It didn’t. I eventually quit because of the hostile work environment.

    Cons

    Management is only there to look out for other management. In trial service, they literally do all they can in their powers to make you hate being there and encourage you to quit, saying they can replace you with anyone else.
