Columbus, Ohio,
I went in for a short term job assignment. The job was everything I expected it to be, but the assignment was a week shorter than they had told me it would be. The second assignment was a total nightmare. I received a call late Friday evening and was offered a position, I was told I had three shifts to choose from so I chose the 11:15 am to 3:30pm shift, I was told not to wear any jewelry other than a wedding band and that it gets pretty hot so I should bring a water bottle, and to be about fifteen minutes early so I could speak to the Acloche rep at he site. Well I was all set to start and I got a call SUNDAY night from a member of the staffing team informing me that the wanted everyone to come in at 9:45am to work on Monday, I told the woman from Acloche that I needed to start as I would have to make other arrangements for childcare. Tuesday I arrived to the job site fifteen minutes early as instructed. I went in and was told that I couldn't wear jeans, (never heard that) that my water bottle had to be clear(never heard that). The on site Acloche staff lead said' "I'll check and see if you can work they really need people". She emailed someone and I was told I could work. She then gave me a list of things to sigh stating I understood the policies of the temps responsibilities at the site, I told her I couldn't sign the paper because I hadn't been made aware of my responsibilities. She spouted them off quickly and I was told to have a seat in the break area, purchase a bottle of water and wait further instruction because she had no idea what I would be doing. I sat with some nice ladies who were telling me about there rough starts and that I would catch on...... I was told after sitting for about 30 minutes that we need to wait at least another ten off the clock to allow the first wave of associates to get enough work going that we'd have something to do. We were told to clock in and Made to do a series of stretches, I was then informed I would have to be at work at 6:55am the next day and the next Monday and Tuesday, and every Monday for the rest of the assignment. (never saw that coming) I then was told to pare up with a woman who had been there for a month, I couldn't understand a word she said her English was so broken and she spoke in the softest tone it was awful.....I was there from 9:30am to 3:50 because the last 20 minutes of my shift a man came and took the lady I was working with to another truck, I was all set to leave when one of the permanent employees saw that I had boxes let and told me I couldn't leave until I had everything off the belt and packed on the truck.... I never got a break and when I asked why we had not taken a break I was told people who work a for hour shift don't get a break....maybe my math is off but I was there well over for hours. I never even drank my water I bought because the work doesn't allow for a sip, I stayed in that hot truck the entire time. Needless to say I didn't return and Acloche said because I didn't give a weeks notice they can no longer assist me in my employment search..... How about the lack of notices I received and the sweat shop style work, It's cool I'll pass. Make sure you get a clear description of a job before you take it because you have to be willing to make changes and except spam and call it steak when dealing with Acloche. My name is Sunny I used my moms email because It was on my computer and I didn't want to write all this over.......
