Trouble

Looking to stir up some trouble Employee? I work there too, nothing to report.

As far the ex-employees complaining on this thread...let me put this in perspective...you lose a job at CSC primarily for two reasons: 1 You do not pass the FBI check 2 You show up late a lot and miss a lot. Both reasons = employee error, not CSC error and the accountability they expect is the same as any other professional employer.

For those comments on managers and favortism to employees, you do realize those people have worked there longer and who gets chance at shift openings and extra work = those who have worked there longer first.

Oh and I know there will be comments "I worked there 5 years and wasn't given stuff over others..blah blah" Yet in those cases you were the same ones abusing the attendance rules, using up vaca+sick as soon as it came in and coming back late from breaks and getting to work. You were already fired when you asked for those things, they were just still in the process of training your replacement.

The location in Barbourville is a decent one for sure.

The only problems are that there is, indeed, rampant favoritism and poor management. It's like a high school popularity contest. Bias in the attendance code for workers with seniority aside, when a supervisor develops a core group of buddies on their team and then proceed to ignore the others unless it's time to hand something out or sign a QA, then there is problem with management. Supervisors are ground management and they generally fail horribly at CSC in Barbourville. Probably because they receive no formal training.

So yeah, there is a problem with management. It's not the work that drives a high turnover rate. The work is easy as pie. The rules are simple to follow. The employees, for the most part, do their job. The supervisors and management do not. It's like a girl's bathroom in between classes in high school. That's literally what coming to work here every day is like.

And the notion that employees should sit back, shut up, and take it is ludicrous. "They're the boss!" is not an acceptable excuse to allow the management of this facility to abuse their positions or walk all over the employees. That's a two-way road. Not that many people in Barbourville who can pass a drug, credit, and background check while also obtaining and maintaining a security clearance. If they keep it up, they'll have cycled through everyone and have to depend (gasp) on high school kids.

OOPS I THINK WE JUST FOUND OUR PROBLEM.

The only way to keep your job at CSC is to make sure you kiss the right ass. Does't matter how long you have been there. Just matters how good of a kisser you are lol. I feel sorry for the CSR's they are over worked and under appreciated. I am sure the CSR's will agree to that. If they dont then they aren't a CSR just a sup or QA posting pretending.

talk about poor supervision they are all bad, they allow the smokers to take xtra breaks and non smokers have to keep working, I see them all thru the day going outside to smoke, they are so unfair, the only way of resolving this is to form a UNION, or call unfair labor board.

The LAST thing we want is a union. Unions take dues (MONEY!) from your check, get to travel from facility to facility on your dime and on most cases do very little to improve situations. You can opt out of paying dues, but the decisions are still made by the union after you bring them in. They had their purpose decades ago but issues they covered then were EEO, employee safety and rights, there are state and federal agencies that watch for that now not to mention laws. Now they cause as much harm as they originally were good for.

Also, if we would try to unionize, do you really think CSC wouldn't pick up and leave? Do you think the people of this area have some unique skill set that cannot be matched in other areas? What we do have is low average income rate for the area/county, which CSC can pay more to employees than the average income level but not as much as if they were in most other counties in other states. While Knox is in the bottom 100 or so of counties in the US for average income level, there are plenty others to choose from?

Haven't you noticed that huge factory next to CSC that sits empty? That is what trying to unionize does, it loses jobs for everyone when employers have choices to go elsewhere.

CSC brings a lot to the community and the wage is quite fair for the work provided. There are not a lot of jobs out there that start out above minimum wage for only requiring a high school education.

So if I have outstanding bills which I am trying to pay, are you saying I should not apply for a job at CSC?
