An angry former employee review from source indeed:
Melbourne VIC - 15 January 2020
A Horrible Place to work with horrible Management Latitude Management are horrible people and especially a Swedish guy called Magnus who was a corporate bully and just a horrible place all together. I recommend people to stay away.
Server, Server trainer (Former Employee) says"this was a horrible pace to work and the management at the time was a joke and often company checks bounced and we as employees were not paid. juat a bad overall experience"
Recruiter (Former Employee) says"A single room with several desks placed around the edges, two small offices to the side, and a bathroom. All guys, more than a little bit of a brofest. No fun unless you're into that sort of thing. Look elsewhere, you can do better."
Production Artist/Graphic Designer (Former Employee) says"While onsite never once did I hear an employee say one thing good about working there. It was very discouraging and a warning sign fo what it would be like to be employed there."
Data Analyst (Former Employee) says"This was a temporary position for me. It was a data migration project that only lasted for the summer. This summer position was very defined. I am content with my time here."
Hostess/Server (Former Employee) says"I worked about 25 hours a week. Person who owned Latitude was very caring but did fail to do some things, Hardest part about this job was dealing with one of my checks bouncing and not being able to recover. The most enjoyable part about this job was working with my friends and meeting customers here who loved my service. Cons: they shut down"
Current Employee - Personal Security Specialist says"I have been working at Latitude Inc full-time Cons: Jobs still being stated as open,on 3rd party sites like this, when they're not."
Former Employee - PC Technician says"I worked at Latitude Inc full-time Cons: Job placement once contract is over."
Former Employee - Recruiter says"I worked at Latitude Inc full-time for less than a year Cons: Limited access to recruitment search engines."
Shipping Department ( International ) says"I worked at Latitude Inc for less than a year Cons: The on the job training is not good."
Developer Contractor says"I worked at Latitude Inc Cons: The only requirement I had from them was to pay me on time, which they failed to do 3 times in 6 months. On a dozen other ocassions, at the last minute, they told me they didn't have the time sheet from the client (and I managed to get it there in time). Now this was often the client's fault, but considering Latitude had two days to check, why wait until it's nearly too late? I was unimpressed with this. They also failed to send me my W2 the next year. I had to ask for it, and they only emailed me one."
Former Employee - Factory Worker says"I worked at Latitude Inc full-time for more than 5 years Cons: Hard work to this company"
