    Pros

    Some people are good to work with - some... The pension is good as are the benefits package. The pay is good for what we do

    Cons

    many people have entitlement issues and the union is hostile. The stewards are often the ones who are the worst. The union needs new leadership badly. They are outdated, only looking to fight, and bring their own agendas into issues ignoring the individual.

    Pros

    The money is good. Being self-employed it was a great place and position. It's also a great job if you are a self motivated individual.

    Cons

    Lots of walking. Need a lot of focus not to make a mistake. You need to work fairly fast to finish on time. No value for your knowledge. Its a very corporate structure where there is no room for advancement without having years with the corporation. I tried to apply for available supervisory positions but no opportunity arose. I have several years of management experience and have operated my own businesses for over 17 years. I wasn't able to land a position.

    Pros

    OK salary,pension and all the benefits are good. Job is not too hard, some overtime too had. People are decent and are there for the same reasons you are.

    Cons

    Stressful,sometimes boring. Many changes occurring, management does not seem to know what they are doing. They tend to promote family and friends instead of those who deserve it.

    Advice to Management

    Use resources you have. Learn to be proactive instead of reacting all the time.
