  • Best thing

    The best thing about my job is the lost people ( employees ) who are continuously grinding to get out of this job trap.

    Worst thing

    Toxic Management, environment, toxic mindset encouragement, cold inside, hazards, pests, dust, punishment if you’re trying to change something into the better, favoritism, management work as a whole toxic mafia and protect themselves regardless of the situation even if you show they are wrong. You got to call every single day if you are sick, no proper training, health and safety is an illusion due they push you to go beyond regulation to achieve inhuman targets , and if you cannot do it ( they won’t get their shitty KPI bonus ) you will get bombarded with files agains you such as disciplinary meetings and threats to be fired.
