Zeer slechte omgang met uitzendkrachten

Ik zat in de 5 ploegen, in Emmen emtec terein! Ik heb mij er de reed uit de naad gewerkt! Vervolgens moesten ze bezuinigen op het personeel! Ook zo bijzonder aangezien ze heel veel personeel te kort hadden. Zeker bepaalde ploegen. Sommige lopen de kantjes eraf en die mogen blijven. en harde werkers word gewoon misbruik van gemaakt! Vervolgens heel veel mensen eruit! Allemaal ontslag. Ik ben toen echt genaaid! Ze hebben mijn contract omgezet van 5 ploegen naar 2 ploegen zonder met mij te overleggen, hierdoor was me recht op ww uitkering vervallen . Ik ging van 23.50 euro per uur naar 16.60 + 350 uur meer werken per jaar! En als nog einde van het jaar 8 duizend bruto minder verdienen! En er veel meer voor werken. Toen mij dit werd medegedeeld wist ik niet wat ik hoorde. Zonder overleg. Ik ga er op elk punt op achteruit! Ik heb geprobeerd loonsverhoging te krijgen want ik had niet hiervoor gekozen.het was me in de strot gedrukt. werd me belooft door een van de hogere Pieten! Hij zegt komt goed als ik daar toestemming voor geef! Dus ik dacht dit is rond. Zoveel vroeg ik niet 1.20 per uur extra ofzo dus ging er alsnog zwaar op achteruit.dag later word ik gebeld door het uitzendbureau dat d.s.m er niet mee akkoord gaat! Vervolgens voelde ik me in de steek gelaten terwijl ik daar zo hard gewerkt hebt. daarom hebben ze me dit ook door de strot gedrukt. Ik kon geen kant meer op! Uitkerings rechten vervallen. Vervolgens heb ik het O.R ingeschakeld die beste mannen hebben echt hun best nog voor me gedaan! Het hele bedrijf prate over deze situatie mensen vinden dit belachelijk. Vroeger - 

Pros

Goed loon als ze je niet naaien

Cons

Nummertje! Beloftes die niet nagekomen worden. Slaven bestaan als uitzendkracht

Geen respect, waardeloos management

People planet en profit is enkel in het belang van de aandeelhouders. Ze geven serieus niets om hun medewerkers. Afstrafcultuur. Er wordt geen rekening gehouden met een gewijzigde thuissituatie. Een ongelofelijk prestatie- en werkdruk waarbij veel van je verwacht wordt tegen een karig loontje. Amper doorgroeimogelijkheden. Het management toont geen empathie aan haar medewerkers en ze denken alleen maar aan zich zelf om hun hachje hoog te houden. Pas op voordat je hier komt te werken, je moet nogal slaafs zijn!

Cons

Werkdruk is hoog, management toont geen empathie, geen doorgroeimogelijkheden, karig loon

Decent salary, TERRIBLE management and HR.

Very high turn around, management only points fingers, never takes accountability. Racist culture exists, and HR covers it up. Very low company morale, management and supervisors make it even harder to be a good employee, as they gossip and hardly ever lend a solution to problems. No HR on site. Employee benefits are decent.

Pros

Good benefits, decent pay.

Cons

Poor management, training, and HR is almost non existent.

Good company, poor management

After almost 13 years with the company my role was made redundant as part of a restructuring, because the business wasn't doing as well as they wanted. In truth, the company was performing well in a competitive market, certainly better than the majority of their competitors. I enjoyed my time there, as most people were knowledgeable, passionate and friendly. Unfortunately, the reason the company wasn't performing to their expectations was purely down to their management team - more interested in a culture of agreeing with each other, rather than challenging the status quo to improve things.

Pros

Good salary, Good People

Cons

Management ineptitude

Good pay but not a place to thrive

I've been working there for 4 years. Most of this time I was overloaded with work and I almost had a burnout. Company culture is quite discriminatory toward some.departments like Customer service. They say Customer first but they don't care at all about the development of the people who are direct contact with he customers. It is very hard to change job if you don't know peopke. have

Pros

Good bonuses

Cons

Lack of good leadership, No options for career growth, Vacancies in the intranet are most of the time taken even before the the vacancy is posted, by people with contacts.

DSM is a overall a good place to work

Benefits such as health insurance and 401k are good. Pay is competitive. People are relatively nice. Little room for advancement, if you are not a favorite. Some locations have a high turn over due to lack of good management and people are constantly changing. Company is strict on employee safety and well being. Good work-life balance in my department - I can't speak for others.

Pros

competitive pay, good 401k match

Cons

little room for advancement
