Mike, when supervisors and managers give you the run around on something like raises and also threaten you about NOT giving you a raise if you simply ask about i would take it directly to HR. the HR people don't take things like this lightly. i say stand up to the man and go there. then that will really get the ball rolling on that.
but honestly i would ditch that crap in a heartbeat, i mean it's good for 16yr olds but when you get older and actually realize they're a POS it's time to move on.
i can see if my step dads work is hiring for their warehouse (part pickers) if you'd be interested..? larry H miller ford on 13th south.
the company i'm working for currently, Easton, has taken GREAT care of me. the bennefits rock, the environment is chill. nobody hassles you about things, we all work together to get crap done. it's pretty amazing that i got this job through a temp agency..
