First off, I am not going to put down the name of the company, I will however tell you we are owned by the Japanese, and ran by Latin-Americans. In
our orientation, they told us if you feel you are being treated unfair, go to HR, and if you are "punished" to tell HR because supervisors are not
supposed to do that. I have been suspended 4 times, because I did what the company said to do. I got suspended once because I asked for a department
I go into work everyday and do my job, and I do it quite well, my supervisor even said so herself. I don't really talk to anyone, cuz "supposedly" the
people I work with can't understand English. And, god frickin forbid if her "clique" who works with me should tell me if the product is not coming out
right so I can fix the problem, they would rather have ALOT of rework, that they don't have to do. In my book, everything should go out on the first
pass, that is being productive, Right? Not here......
And one would think if an employee makes a suggestion on how to make their job easier, management would at least entertain the idea. but instead
management does something to make it 10 X's harder.
ETA: All of management are latin americans, except two white women, one a supervisor, one lead, and one white guy. out of I'd guess 65 supervisors,
I get along with everyone, except her and her Cronies as I have nicknamed them. Of course, I do however have a problem with getting sneered at, looked
down on, and dirty looks when I run the way the boss wants(their friend) And some of the looks they give me is like I owe them something.
People are supposed to be rotated everyday. I have done the same job for a year and a half, of which, I don't have a problem with, HOWEVER, after a
while, its nice to do something different, I asked twice to be moved for just half a day.....I got laughed at by my supervisor and told to get back to
work.....mind you I can multitask, I was already working as we were talking.
I know if someone is reading this, your probably thinking well, go talk to her boss.....right.......can't do that either, because they are having an
affair, go to his boss......HR won't do anything about it. My next step is to go to HR's boss, then the president of the company.
There is WAY more to this than just this. Almost EVERY "white" person, espically us girls get wrote up, or yelled at on a daily basis.
In my case, I'm expected to keep the line running, and make sure quality standards are being met, basically run the line, but I do not have a title,
but yesterday, one of her "Cronies" was putting something on that shouldn't have been there, I picked it up showed him, and he proceeded to put 3 more
on glaring at me, I asked him if he was stupid. Mind you he don't know English. I get pulled into a hallway and told I can't say things like that, and
I am not to talk, tell, suggest anything to anyone, just stand in my little 1 and a half spot and do what I do.
It's kinda hard when I have new people asking me questions I know the answer to, or show them an easier way to do things, which speeds production.
Any bosses here who agrees with her? I would think that if a boss had an employee who is willing to help make production go smoother, so more product
can be produced, they would be more than happy. Not her.
Any ideas on what to do. I don't want another job, I like this one, I just don't appreciate who I work for.
