  1. Very Unappreciative and Poor Senior Management

    Pros

    It's a job that pays every week, full time employees are great to work with and generally cares about new part-time employees safety, eight hour shifts with a paid thirty minute lunch. Many drivers are helpful and respectful towards new employees.

    Cons

    Some equipment is very old and unsafe, many of the jeeps that are used by dock workers have poor brakes at best and are unable to stop. No sick days, pay raises, holiday pay, work weeks consist of two days one week and three days the next totaling forty hours. When hired we were told there may be a chance to become full time depending on the economy, but since then no such luck to part timers who have been there 6-8 months. Part time employees are thought of as garbage because there is an abundance of other applicants. Full time employees are desperately wanting to retire because of senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Try showing more respect to your subordinates at all levels, stop wasting so much paper and promote some part time employees to full time; the consistent hiring and firing of part time employees and having them quit when they find full time work elsewhere is seriously killing morale and costing the company more money, and maintain the machinery better or replace it, not being able to stop a vehicle pulling 2,000 lbs is very dangerous.

  2. Not bad, but not great. A paycheck.
