I worked in the solar branch and my particular office in Connecticut used fear and intimidation tactics to try and squeeze more productivity out of its employees. Always went through great length in making me feel as if they were on the edge of firing me and making me feel like i was a worthless employee. For example they had a meeting with me to degrade my performance and hit me on factors such as my attendance, work ethic, improvement stagnation, sales numbers, job site errors that costed money.... Yet i hadn't called out in over a year (the one time for my best friends passing, and three times in 3 and a half years of employment), the best sales numbers and costumer satisfaction for my job division in the north east, and no job site errors for over a year (nearly unheard of). Hmmmmm lol.....Yet i worked for a week filling in for a guy that got hurt at another branch. They were very reasonable/fair to work for. And they put in a request to have me transfer to their office.
Very political place if your views do not match up with the views of the far left precisely they will be bios towards you...... I never spoke about politics either. They found out likely because one of the guys dated a close cousin of mine. And i was on their naughty list until i got laid off. And I'm pretty liberal myself !!!
They are very strict with safety. with that said it is still dangerous work and upper management will often ask you to do unsafe stuff. one of the reasons i wanted to quit before they laid me off.
I had a BIG issue with them paying me on time.
Job often follows you home.
