Way too much red tape with this company.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Way too much red tape with this company. The turnover of employees was incredible. Very few of our officers stayed for very long so we always had open positions that we were FORCED to fill. Very hard to get off for a doctor appointment or something without having to take an entire day off. They did not understand that people had business to take care of outside of work and that everything was not a family emergency. I gave 4 days notice that I needed to be off for a half a day because I was having a portable building delivered to my home and the home owner was required to be there. I had already been waiting two months for the delivery and my supervisor threatened to fire me if I left. That was the straw that broke the camels back.

Pros

Benefits were good.

Cons

Management was poor.

Not what I expected

Definitely do some research before going into this industry. This is the most boring job I’ve ever had....even with doing most of my boss’s work. I do about three hours of actual work every month....it’s a joke.

Cons

Short breaks, working lunches

Fun, always learning, busy, fast pace

In this company this pay is base on their contacts. They offer weekends, overnight, great pay and it's weekly. Some sites offer 401k plans. Uniforms are free, shoes you pay for. This company with give free training for CPR. The training for the CPR is also paid for. Employment is quick and easy after the CPR training is completed.

Pros

Free lunches

Management

Management needs to pay better attention to their employees and take care of them, they need to show a genuine interest in the employees that work for them.

Pros

none

Cons

Health insurance is expensive, low pay, doesn't care about employees, more concerned about profits, you only get one week vacation, will run you to the ground, and screw up pay, refusing to correct it.

2.5 years and still happy

I'm happy with the flexibility of annual leave and management. In terms of pay, it could be better. I work 10 hours a day but when I'm on annual leave I'm getting paid for 8 hours at bank holidays....

Pros

Paid lunch brakes, possibility to take unpaid leave
