The part about being forced mandatory overtime is only in part true. If its forced on everyone EQUALLY, than yes, but if it's not, than NO.
I know plenty of people that are "chosen' and given much lighter routes. As a result, they have better and more efficient help and are able to get things done in 40 hours. Others are given new hires, not as efficient help (pt etc), and as a result are forced to work overtime. Regardless if you are paid overtime or not, this practice is most often discriminatory even if the intent to discriminate wasn't there. They bank on people not pushing this avenue due to "david vs goliath", but if more people pushed back they would be forced to stop.
Love the Starbucks and Amazon workers that are fighting back. Face it, if Mondelez could retain employees this would not be an issue. It is a revolving door and for good reason. Poor management! Our DM would text us from the bars while we were winding up a 12 hour day in the field to "see how it was going", and he was three drinks in already.
Never seen a place run like this and hope never to see one again, I left and am so much happier. I share my experiences because I think people need to know there is life after Mondelez. Best thing you can do is either rally together for change or leave.
Worst management ever!
We are forced to work overtime because we have no employees right now.
There's been plenty of times when our area was fully staffed, and we were all not allowed 1 minute of overtime.
Whatever this company needs and wants, they take without any concerns for the employees. People and their lives and families don't matter, only profits for Mondelez.
The differences in the way this company is managed from place to place amazes me.
How the he-l are you getting overtime? I get in trouble for going a minute over 40
Doesn't really matter what your thoughts are. It's legal, as long as it pays time and a half if you're hourly. (sorry, salaried folks, but you're screwed!) You can be fired if you don't work it... but it's not something I'd stick around for. If it comes to mandatory overtime on any regular basis I'm out.
They cut ot for us
