      Pay was good, Benefits were cheap


      Hostile work environment, Manager was a Bully, No flexibility in hours, Lack of training opportunities, Manager was not willing to help bring new staff up to speed on the department. Everyone in dept was overworked and didn't have time to help new people.

      Descent salary, good benefits, great working hours, holidays and day off.


      The evaluation of employee in trial services is no fair. An HSS3 they evaluate by accuracy, that means the HSS4, an other union coworker evaluate a supervise your job. Hello SEiU a union member can't supervise other Union Member. HSS4 is looking for management interests no for an Union Member. If you are HSS1 you will be evaluate by your capacity of be a great brown nose. You don't have preoccupation about accuracy of error. That means they verify your work and depend if you were trained in the area you will get an error. If you are smart and have new ideas, KEEP QUIET, management don't like new ideas, you will be a shadow and they start calling you trouble maker. In WCPC, management don't know nothing about how system works so they delegate to HSS4 all management responsibility. So, a union member will be your hangman. Now they are training new people all time, fired without compassion and humanity, discriminate with old employees, and ironic with Latin employee.

      Repetitive desk job

      Decent pay, good hours, holidays off, Secured building, one manager out of four is bound to be professional. Benefits are great and independent work is plentiful.


      Employees can be disgruntled and unfriendly to new people, clients can be angry and use foul language at you, lots of paperwork, confusions about who is doing what, four managers in one building can be frustrating when they all have different ideas about what you should be doing.
