I have been working at Auto Warehousing full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The pay varies depending on the location but generally pretty good. The experience of driving brand new cars. Working outside rather than cooped up in an office all day. Great exercise which builds muscle and loses fat! Definitely not a boring job there is always movement and something to do. Yet it is not too stressful.

Cons

12 hours shifts. The morning starts off with strenuous, vigorous activity. You better get plenty of sleep before work. You can expect to be very sweaty opening large 2 railcar doors, and bending over for about 2 to 3 hours. The doors seem to be lacking in lubrication. The bending over part is breaking chocks. They are objects pressed up against the tires to prevent the vehicles from moving during the train commute. An average of 500 vehicles with 4-8 chocks per vehicle can be pretty exhausting. This is not a job for people with back problems.

Advice to Management

Recognize our hard work with a free meal every few months. Find a better way to secure tri-deck level vehicles. The old rusty chocks are absolutely terrible, horrible, and gruesome for the hands and fingers

    Pros

    It's a job in the most simplistic sense of the word.

    Cons

    No organization,. Come to work, 1/2 hour later, sent home. Next week usually on Thursday mandatory overtime for the next 5-6 days. No notice at all, then back to being sent home. Must complete 750 hrs to be considered passed probation. Promotions based on how brown your nose is, not ability or knowledge. One of the worst places I've ever worked.

    Advice to Management

    To upper level management, fire them all.
