WHAT THEY SAY
“I never had the resources to do my job. Every time I brought it up, the company said it would be addressed but it never was.”
“Upper management was awful. We once got an email stating that ‘he would allow us to have Labor Day off’ and that ‘you better enjoy it because next week is going to be very tough.’ Labor Day is a company holiday.”
