    I have been working at Bulkmatic

    Pros

    The company really stresses safety. They want attention to detail when it comes to security and making sure that we do everything we can to ensure a product that is handled with care and free of contaminents. They have training like no other bulk carrier that I've seen.

    Cons

    Some equipment is older. Some of the terminals don't do as good a job as others to make sure the equipment is serviced properly. Some of the fault lies with the drivers because they don't report things that need to be repaired so mechanics can't know what to repair. Some just need to be replaced because of age.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes it looks as though there is too much upper management.

    Pros

    Benefits; some growth potential; opportunity to self-direct to some degree

    Cons

    Limited training; poor HR resolutions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a strong timeline of training for new employees, followed by a review; provide a strong and specific training program for transitions within the company (does not need to be long or extensive, but focused). For those who have been self-motivated, have a strong work ethic and been loyal to the company, take a closer look at any person lodging a complaint, if you want to keep the honest, ethical employee.

    Pros

    It pays the bills. It's a job. A few friendly people.

    Cons

    Too many hours! No chain of command. Horrible communication. Favoritism is worse than I have ever seen. Extremely cut throat company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to being a company that actually cares about its employees. Bring back Butch.
