    Pros

    You get uniforms and get a weekly check.

    Cons

    Don't even know where to start. Or lie to start with. They hire ppl with no experince or knowledge of the freight business for lower managment. When there are hard working ppl giving 110% at the bottom with all the knowledge and know how .killings them selfs just to advance to make a better life for there families. But just to get crushed seeing someone from the outside take that postion away. And what really gets me half of those new hires end up leaving. Don't you think that someone who gets paid peanuts and has been there for yrs,. Will stay on board even longer getting paid more in there new postion. It don't take a @#$%*% guiness to realize that. Keep wasting money training someone new every time one of them quits.

    Advice to Management

    Stop freakin lieing to these dock workers who work there butts off ,thinking they will advance in the company.
