Pros

There are some pleasent co workers. The direct supervisors are fair. It is good compensation if you do not have a degree.

Cons

The department is always understaffed. Management is not very competent. Employees quit on a regular basis because moral is low. There is a lot of mandatory overtime assigned, and you are on call 2 nights a week, minimum. You almost always get called in for at least one of them.

Advice to Management

Management needs to be more involved with the employees to really turn around the moral. You need to instill a positive workplace attitude that must come from the top. Trainers need to be trained.

    Pros

    Little mandatory overtime but the opportunity for overtime for those who want it. Supervisors are fantastic and fair. Good pay for no degree.

    Cons

    During time of low staffing there is significant mandatory overtime (48-52 hour work week). Working weekends will be a must until you have significant seniority.

    Advice to Management

    Don't sweat the small rules and find a way to increase moral. It does not always seem like the most fun place to work.


  2. Verry good training and coworker support. Good place to spend your working years

    Pros

    very good training and supervisor support. Coworkers are like family. Never a dull moment. Every day is a new adventure. Pay is good enough.

    Cons

    never have holidays off and have to work in bad weather no matter how bad it gets. Have to deal with people from all walks of life.

    Advice to Management

    Stand behind your motivated employees and lead them in the right direction when they get off track. Quickly remove the bad apples.
