      Worst Company to work for in Carlsbad!

      11 Jan 2023 - Field Operator

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      You get 7 days off, if management ever lets you go home.

      Cons

      This company is so understaffed it’s impossible to have anything done. Micro-managed to a T. They run a program called “Click” accounts for every second of your day. If you’re working on something that’s not on click and pinned on you, it doesn’t count as timed worked. Management will give you false promises and mislead you.
