What don't you like about working at Technicolor?

"Technicolor is a major distribution company located in Memphis, TN. The company exploits the labor pool in Memphis in a way I've never seen before. The company only uses temporary labor and has many temporary employees that have worked for the company for years with no benefits, or raises, making only minimum wage. Everyone other than management makes minimum wage. When you arrive at the company you will think its a prison. There are security guards waving metal wands at everyone and checking purses and other belongings. You have to stand in line to get waved in and out. You can not bring a cell phone into the building and there are no phones for use within the building. Once you are inside the building you cannot leave for any reason, not even an emergency or they tell you its an automatic termination. You have no means to communicate with members of the outside for around 13 hours. There are chains on all the doors and there is only one way in and one way out. The city of Memphis looks the other way even though this is a violation of fire safety codes because Memphis has few jobs and wants to keep Technicolor happy.The temporary staffing agencies send out more people than they know is needed to make sure all positions are filled. They do not compensate for wasted gas if you cannot get inside to work. Technicolor is a long drive down a backroad on the outskirts of Memphis and if you show up and there are people already there you can't work. When you do work you have to show up hours early. Sometimes two hours early. Technicolor has onsite staff of mostly Hispanics and they would have the black employees stand in one line and the Hispanic workers in another line. Then the Hispanic line was always called first and assured a place in to work for the day. They say this was because all of the Hispanic workers had been made Core temps. Yet no black workers had been made Core temps. Also, the black workers standing at the end of the line would be made to write their entire social security numbers down on a sheet of paper being passed around and when they complained they were told they could not just write the last four numbers but the entire number. This paper would eventually make it to the Hispanics who were standing in line up front, many of whom were copying their social security numbers down from torn off sheets of paper. After I left Technicolor, for years I received W2 forms from jobs I had never worked all the way out as far as California. There was no vacation or benefits of any kind. If you got sick or missed a day for any reason you could be permanently banned from Technicolor. Even if you couldn't always get placed. They would call you no matter what time and expect you to show if they had an opening. They wouldn't give you but about 20 minutes. No matter what you were. And again they paid minimum wage and if you made it and they had changed their minds you were just out of luck. There was no compensation for your gas.I worked out there during the summer with one brief winter stint. During the summer there was no A/C and there were women fainting in the warehouse. Pregnant women would just pass out and they would call the ambulance. During the winter time people were so desperate to work they would show up hours early and be made to stand outside the building in below freezing weather for one to two hours in full view of management and security sitting on the inside of the building laughing and smiling in the warm. People would be shivering, their noses running, grown men and women, waiting to get in. The company and management/security was so callous they would not let people in to stand in the warm. If you sat in your car you would lose your place as again Technicolor took the first couple who showed up.The company never guaranteed an 8 hour day and if work became slow they would send you home. Even after 2 or 3 hours. It was very exploitative company with unsafe working conditions. To this day, I don't understand how they get away with chaining people inside that warehouse. A tornado had hit once and again all the doors were chained and people did not have anyway out other than through the front but security and chains was blocking that too. So people covered themselves even as parts of the roof blew off."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Invent a new system as the current one is exploitative and cruel and unsafe."
