les schwab distributionmillican road prineville, Oregon United States of America
After being with this company for several years and busting my butt day in and day out I could not be happier with a company until I got hurt and was placed in a guard shack and told everyday I was an inconvience because I had to be picked up at the parking lot and most of the time I had to stand there and wait for a good 10 minutes while wearing a leg immobilizer and the doctors orders were to stay off of my feet. I was placed in a building not much bigger than a outhouse which was 150-200 yards from the bathroom which I was told I had to walk to in order to use the restroom. There was no water or any thing in this guardshack either. When I was originally injured informed my supervisor I was going to the doctor and he said that was fine so I did so and the doctor put me on light duty so when I returned to work they sent me home which I was at home for close to 2 months and went without recieving a paycheck and to this date still have not for this time missed. After this time passed I contacted human resources and told them they better fix this so they called my supervisor and told him I was to be placed in the guard shack. When I showed up to my disbelief he then has me doctor the incident report since he had not filled out anything in all this time.
After doing alittle research I was amazed that there are so many people that have went through this same exact problem with getting hurt on the job and getting thrown out like a piece of garbage. What I want to know is for a company that says they put their employees first after we have busted our butts for you for so long why are we the ones in the end getting the shaft? I have 5 kids that have always said when I grow up I want to work for les schwab but I would advise anyone against working for this company just for these reasons. I went over 3-4 years with no injuries and a great attitude and it opened alot of doors and earned me alot of respect but look at me now. I have over 20+ people who have been shafted by this company and am encouraging other people to come forward so we can put a stop to this.
