Company cares about its Graders

Avis à la une

L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
During covid, GIA kept everyone on payroll for 2 months and payed us 40 hours a week as if we where still working. They even payed our benefits way after we where furloughed. Sadly they had to let go of a few people but they didn't want to. I can tell they care about keeping us happy enough to not quit. Which is better than most companies. Benefits and 401k are better than most.

Points positifs

yearly raises, yearly bonuses, work at your own pace to hit your numbers.

Points négatifs

No raises because of covid, forced to work nights due to covid

Boring work but stable company and benefits are good

It can be tough to work here because of the inside dim lighting and sitting at a desk looking into a microscope all day, but it's hard to leave because they have great PTO and 401k and med benefits. Before covid it was a great job but now we all wear masks and morale is super low.

Points positifs

Used to have holiday parties, luncheons, games, good benefits

Points négatifs

Right now I dread going in

Reasonable and good benefits, beautiful HQ location

The company training was excellent and prepared you well for the job. Most co-workers are good to work with and always ready to assist when needed. Some people in the management plays favorite to the butt kissers, yes they exists in GIA too. Management does not alert their staff ahead of time when it's time to downsize. You will find out you are being terminated on the day you come to work. Work experience, seniority and expertise at what you do don't even come into consideration. Staff who were hired with less than a year of experience were retain and let go of the ones with many years under their belt. Quality was sacrificed over quantity.

Points positifs

Most coworkers, opportunity to learn a new trade or skill

Points négatifs

Management playing favorites.

Good management and advancement potential

I had great potential at this company, unfortunately for Covid, I had to leave the job. The work was monotonous, but the benefits and pay were fair.

Management has no clue what they are doing.

Management needs training. There is no upward growth available in the Lab. Management plays favorites. There is no incentive to do more than what is required.

Favoritism

The company has many internal cliques, if you do not fit in with them it's easy to get fired. Management can be just as bad, gossip is rampant and there is no shortage of favoritism. Diamond grading criteria is subjective, constantly changing. Achieving employee goals is like hitting a moving target, no consistency. The best part was the medical, dental and 401k benefits.

Detail Oriented

I thoroughly enjoyed working at GIA. It is a quota based job, so u must be focused. You work in the dark all day, can become emotionally challenging. Repetitive motion injuries can be triggered by this job. Long hours at a desk on a computer and microscope. Great job security, kind group to work for.

Great place to work with no growth

Our management team was very fair and helpful to all employees. The comrodery between employees was fairly strong. We worked well as a team. I learned about reviewing cameras and writing up reports. We regularly took emergency management FEMA tests and annual CPR training. I enjoyed going on patrol and interacting with fellow security officers and also the graders.

GIA is a good company

As a diamond grader, the typical day is very production oriented and regimented. You are expected to be on time to the minute, every minute counts, you must grade a certain number of stones per shift, and the breaks are short. I do not know what it is like to work in the administrative side of the company, but the lab side is both friendly and collaborative but very strict and requires a lot of concentration and repetitive movements. It's not for everybody. However, the company is a good one to work for. They care about their employees and try to provide good healthcare, advancement, raises with advancement and lots of training and support.

Points positifs

Good benefits, free dinner for evening shift

Points négatifs

short breaks, regimented time

Dark and Bad Morale.

Mostly sitting at your desk. I've learned how to grade diamonds. Management is terrible. Workplace is dark and sad... everyone walks around like a zombie and sit at their desk like robots. Hardest part of the job is sitting all day staring at the microscope and computer monitor with limited breaks allow. The most enjoyable part of the job is the friends I've made at the job.

Points positifs

Co-workers, Hours and Benefits.

Points négatifs

Management, Environment and Culture.

Neat Place

The candidate who applies and is hired meets a progressive opportunity. The training was elaborate and meant to help the graders get through testing, and there were group sessions to confer the status of the each member’s findings in the microscope.

Great place to work at

It can be challenging at first while learning the intricacies of the job and the training period can be stressful as there is a time limit on your progress, but with effort it does become easier. Although certain work expectations, quality/quantity, are required, the work becomes more on the independent side which enables you to excel and progress at your own pace. The job culture for the most part is great and colleagues are respectful. One of the best aspects of the job, is the understanding of "life" circumstances and managements willingness to work with you in regards to this.

sweatshop

it feels like sweatshop because upper management will evaluate you based on how many you have been grading so you have to get faster and faster each month.

Not worth it

Spent 5 year there, and really wasted my time. You can exceed your quotas and have a high degree of accuracy and they will still be unhappy. The rate of pay is not enough for the NY area. Poor ergonomics.

Points positifs

opportunities to travel

Points négatifs

Very demanding job

This job was a very demanding job for little pay. The little money paid just accumulate more stress cause you didnt make enough to cover rent and they expect you to be happy about it.

Points positifs

stressful
