      I noticed that if your not in the click and the click is the managers and supervisors watch out! They will tell lies about you, write you up for anything and everything and give you absolutely no guidance, your treated like the plague if you ask a question. There wasn't enough time in the day to complete all the duties required for this position. No work life balance be prepared to work up to 12 hours a day + Saturdays. The managers and supervisors are two faced they talk about the employees behind there backs but to there face they are buddies, it's like they feel very superior to anyone under them. I was pushed out they didn't like me a certain woman manager who everyone knows there, if she doesn't like you the door is the next step for you, bad mouth you to who ever is listening and has a foul mouth as well The type of person that will help you if needed but then hold it against you at the same time and this is management. And how many smoke breaks can managers, supervisors take in one day?

        Some of the pros are the fantastic training opportunities available to management, great work benefits and the overall outlook for the sustainability for the company.


        The work life balance is not the best at this location due to several challenges.

        Thanks for your feedback and being part of the RS team!

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      How long to typically hear back from a mid-sized company (200-300 people) after an initial interview? Their internal recruiter told me “a few days” and it’s been a week. Interview went very well (I thought!) Thinking of following up on Thursday if I don’t hear.

      A sign? Sheer luck, or coincidence? The stars are aligned? Is there a full moon tonight? I kid you not... I was in the middle of writing a follow up email to a recruiter for a job I applied to almost 2 weeks ago. As I was about to hit send, I noticed an email from that very company that arrived like a few minutes earlier with: "Next steps - Interview" *been off 13+ months, only 2nd interview. Wish me luck!!!🤞

      First interview: I am so excited to meet with you today!! 😀😌 50th interview: Hi
