    Pros

    Excellent work life balance. Supportive operations supervisor. Great in house training and systems. Opportunity for advancement with certification and laterals moves available.

    Cons

    Contract employment. Employment scheduling should include flex time for days when it is slow.

    Advice to Management

    I think it is important in any organization for management to recognize when it has rotten apples and instead of pushing them along in the process action needs to be taken. Zeiders needs to address those few bad apples in management.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Zeiders Enterprises full-time

    Pros

    Provide some work from home opportunities.

    Cons

    Not a work-life balance organization. Promotes unqualified individuals they like over more qualified applicants. Do not value employees with education and skill sets highly sought after by other organizations. Large exodus of minority employees over the past 2 years. Unethical human resources department personnel. Salaries are not set based on professional experience. Limited career growth potential. Unethical hiring and promotion practices.

    Advice to Management

    Provide leadership training to your leadership team. Create an unbiased, selection board commitee to ensure internal promotions to leadership positions are merit based and not the result of personal relationships/friendships. Take complaints more seriously and investigate them more throughly. Create a working group to discuss how to improve organization's race relations and hiring and promoting of African-Americans within the organization. Encourage leadership to remove personal biases from their decision-making and learn to give their team members, all of their team members, the same opportunities to grow and learn.
