RCA Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
The RCA Corporation was a major American electronics company, which was founded as the Radio Corporation of America in 1919. It was initially a patent trust owned by General Electric (GE), Westinghouse, AT&T Corporation and United Fruit Company. In 1932, RCA became an independent company after the partners were required to divest their ownership as part of the settlement of a government antitrust suit.
The brand left environmental damage as shown at RCA's Wikipedia page, "A former RCA facility in Taiwan's northern county of Taoyuan (now Taoyuan City) polluted groundwater with toxic chemicals and led to a high incidence of cancer among former employees. The area was declared a toxic site by the Taiwanese Environmental Protection Agency. GE and Thomson spent millions of dollars for cleanup, removing 10,000 cubic yards (7,600 m3) of soil and installing municipal water treatment facilities for neighboring communities. A spokesman for RCA's current owners denied responsibility, saying a study conducted by the Taiwan government showed no correlation between the illnesses and the company's facilities, which shut down in 1991. On April 17, 2015, RCA lost the case and the Taipei District Court ordered RCA's current owners to compensate its former employees with a total of NT$560 million (approximately USD18.1 million).

Poor equipment vehicles, no hand trucks, over packed vehicles with parcels unsafe... NoneManagement, workers that take up space with no intention to earn their pay!"

Mail Clerk (Current Employee) says"Terrible company to work for. Poor moral. Management are poorly trained. Lack of organizational skills from management. Management does not have employee engagement meetings because they don't care if you advance in the company. Not properly compensated for the physical labor, long hours, and only one day off a week. You're worked like a robot. Management are not professional. If they are mad with you, they cut your hours and/or assign undesirable work. This company allows you to work for them 5+ years as a non career employee and you are not eligible for any retirement plan, Thrift saving plan...NOTHING but horrible insurance and the dental plan only covers cleanings and x-rays.Meet nice customers occasionallyNo benefits except terrible health insurance for non career employees, no flexibility"
Rural Carrier Associate (Former Employee) says"there's 3 unions minimum in every post office. If you aren't in the city carrier union, you're less than dirt. Upper management (above the post office level- Detroit) has no business being in charge of a popsicle stand, let alone a region of the postal service. They have problems reading and following the contract.there are nonetoo many to mention"

You will stress your family relationships to the breaking point.If you we’re making 100k a year, maybe you can justify it but, for little more than minimum wage, nope.Lose weightBeaten to a pulp"
Letter Carrier (Current Employee) says"Management will lie and prevent a person from being awarded an upper level position or detail...No room for advancement. Older people need to retire...The work place violence is real and the adult co workers are bullies and extremely unprofessional. I would not apply here as a carrier, we do the most work, drive in 100 degree trucks daily, WE only get a 30min lunch after being in the heat all day. It s not worth it!None"
City Carrier Asst (Former Employee) says"Management sets you up to fail everyday , the most dishonest people ive ever worked with in my entire life ,oakwood station should be audited cause they constantly lie to workers and customers,and you are just a number ,not a person with a brain ,ignorant people work for the post office!you lose alot of weight, overtimethey treat you very badly, they work against you not with you"
Janice Kelly says"I have been in Danvers twice. Once during COVID. They did not follow protocol... nor were they willing... i begged them as I I needed care. They advertise they are five star rating which is far from the truth. They placed cdc and who protocols that they did in no way follow... they gave these patients a false sense of security... there were several “symptomatic” COVID patience and still nothing... I didn’t want to leave but the conditions made it untenable... off record staff told me to leave was the right thing... they didn’t care... they couldn’t get rid of me fast enough... they portray these great facilities but that is not the case.. they are understaffed.. coodos to those that serve... it is a sham and a front for insurance money... there were so many people there being underserved... god bles to those that are there that don’t know any different... I am a highly educated person... but I know right from wrong... this place is a scam..."
Vicki Dawson says"Literally held me hostage by not letting me to use a phone to get out of there! I finally was able to get past the aids and made a scene in the main lobby was I then able to use a phone. They knew I wanted to get out of there for two days and because of getting high pay for my insurance company, wouldn't let me call him to get me. P.S. Some of the staff are outright ghetto. Worst place I've been to put of 5. It's the Grace of God that I'm in recovery."
Melissa says"I sent my husband there to receive treatment, I was told the cost was going to be 8,000.it was an out of network facility with our insurance. They took my credit info and then every week there was an appeal with our insurance company. The 3rd week they told me that the insurance had denied and that my husband had to leave. I spoke with our insurance company and the facility never put in an appeal. I spoke to Angela there who told me they would try for one.then i also called her back after speaking with the appeals department to tell her what they said to me and beg her to put in for the appeal and what she had to do for it to go through. She never called back. The next day I called again and tried to talk to her about it and she said she couldn't speak with me per my husband. I explained I just wanted to tell her about insurance. 2 hours later my husband was pulled out of group and sent packing because he wouldnt sign more paperwork stating he would be responsible for another 6000. Bottom line is they should be there to help not be so worried about money!!! The insurance would have paid if they did their jobs!"
keith lawrence says"I recently posted a review for Recovery Centers of American Danvers about my horrible experience I had there. Less than 24 hours later I received a call from a woman asking why I had put the review up. I told her it was obviously to let people know my experience and how unhappy I was with the place. She didn't care about anything else. She didn't ask about my well being and was actually kind of rude. She cut the conversation short because she had a "meeting" to attend and would call me back as soon as she could. I don't know why she would bother calling when she knew she had not a lot of time to talk or resolve anything. This was going on two weeks ago and no word back. I guess even though they have opened under new management it is still just about the money in their pockets rather than the care of the patients. Because of their negligence i have an almost $1700 ambulance bill that is in collections because of being sent out. I have insurance and that is all covered, but I guess it is time to take my attonery's advice an persue action. Once again, extremely disappointed."
